She's so funny. I was like, "Mum, he was just trying to help by letting you know what else you could use instead."

"He was just showing off," she said.

Haha... ladies, let me impress you with my extensive knowledge of household floor cleaning products.

Then she said, "I went in there on Friday and this lady was mugging me off with 'it's in aisle nine or 10'!"

(((Mugging me off!))) Haha! She thinks she's bloody Danny Dyer.

I don't know, I'm sure there are some women out there who'd drop their knickers at a man who has an extensive knowledge of cleaning products. I haven't met any of these women yet but statistically I'm sure they exist.

You've got to love mum's some days. Mine recently piped up and said she doesn't like the trainee pharmacist because he looks too young. I tried to point out to her that if he's a trainee it's a safe bet he's going to be young.

Just out of interest what part of the country is she from?

Quite right, you should brush your teeth and do your hair.

I volunteered to escort P1s through the parade for my town's gala on Saturday, they were so well-behaved apart from stopping every two seconds to pick up a cool stick. It was so much fun.
A girl walked past us wearing a Tae-Kwon Do outfit and a wee boy goes 'look, it's a ninja!', my son replies 'that's not a ninja, silly, it's a grown-up karate guy'.

The same wee boy spotted a Saltire flying from someone's window and he yells 'a Scotland flag! I LIVE IN SCOTLAND!', I said 'me too! what a coincidence!', he looked at me wide-eyed and said 'Really?!'

Haha kids are terrible but often so great. Little bullies. My little nephew made a big issue of me having chocolate around my mouth all day. It was brown lipstick. Can always count on a kid to tell you the truth of just how pathetically idiotic that overpriced, celebrity endorsed product makes you look.

matthew mercers interview..
interesting hearing the voice of mccree talk about having self loathing, body dysmorphia and how imposter syndrome nearly negatively impacted his confidence and almost his career. very touching how the dude described him as a lighthouse, cute moment

It's my parents' wedding anniversary today.



Usually I secretly remind my Dad about it, so he doesn't forget to buy my Mum some gifts. I don't know the date of the anniversary. I've inherited my Dad's complete lack of memory of birthdays etc. The only way I am able to remind my Dad is when my Mum usually says to me, "It's mine and your Dad's wedding anniversary on blah-blah-day."

She didn't do that this time.... Instead last night at about 10pm she said to me, "It's mine and your Dad's wedding anniversary tomorrow. I bet your Dad will forget! Don't tell him!"

My Dad was in bed. He hadn't left gifts on the table before he went to work, like he usually would. So I had to WhatsApp and text him this morning to remind him and then he'd be able to bring something home with him.

When I got home from work my Mum was like, "I was wrong! Your Dad remembered our anniversary and he got me presents and a big card and it nearly made me cry."


Me and my Dad gave each other a little nod.

My nephew lent me two if his little cars, i've now got them for an indefinite period. Not sure what i'm gonna do with them but i thought it was pretty swell that i have his trust.

Had my Niece read one of her school grade poetry books, helped her read out 'parakeet' and 'mongoose'. When she finished the poem i pulled her up on these two words, asking her to point out, in the picture, which she thought was the mongoose and which the parakeet.

Was in London yesterday, and went into a coffee chain. The staff were very multicultural - Eastern Europeans, Carribeans and Asians - they were all having a brilliant laugh and were great with the customers.

I love to see that, especially as so many people negative people seem to dislike multiculturalism

Driving past a middle aged man taking his dog for a walk. Every now and then he turns and chats to the dog, and the dog looks up at him as if it's listening. That always makes me laugh. There is something so sweet about middle-aged men and their dogs. The dog is like their little mate.
