CAN YOU DO A BIT OF IRONING FOR ME DAD, no probs, but did,nt expect two ruddy bags full, passed a couple of my chilling hours though, Weather great in Cleckie and my Smokers corner was like a Chatting Corner this Morning, must have spent a good Hour Chatting, we,ve had a few incidents in Cleckie this Year but overall it,s a Sociable Town and deserves credit for being so, Youngest Daughter and Husband just called hence i,m off for another Chat.
Ruddy ell HOW MUCH CLOTHING DO YOUNG UNS WEAR ON HOLIDAY, when i go anywhere i state to Wife AN EXTRA PAIR OF JEANS T, Shirt plus shirt, socks and undies for each day and a pair of shoes, CASE DONE, another bag of ironing dropped off Today and one more to come, if i,d have been going to Spain i,d have been in the same shorts and top all Week and bore the brunt of Wifes YOU SCRUFFY GIT. Think they,ve been brought up well by there Mum ANDY CAPP was in the background on dress code with me, although Wife does state my Style in Younger Days always stood out IT WOULD NOW IF SHE,D LET ME.
Think i,ve finally caught up with Ironing and even managed to wash Car, normally after washing Car it ruddy Rains, but thankfully Today Sunshine again over Cleckie, we,ve got Youngest Grandson Tomorrow and i,ll be taking him down to our Folk Festival, it,s now in it,s 32nd Year hence still going strong, i luv seeing the Morris Dancers , think they take me back to Belle Vue in Manchester Days when they came from all over the Country and performed there one Weekend each Year.Think Wife will be joining me this Year due to having Grandson, it,s not that she dose,nt like coming with me, it,s because i end up Chatting to so many People, as i state IT,S GOOD MANNERS as she states YOUR A RUDDY CHATTERBOX, hmmmmm AS IF.
Great Day at Folk Festival, Grandson luvved it, watched the Parade set off from Fire Station and followed it into Town, spent three hours watching the Dancers and just chilling to music, was invited out by Two of the Daughters and Hubbies in the Evening, only went to two Pubs, the George is where we met up and thankfully they had a cosy corner and drinks awaiting us, the garden outside was packed and a long que managed by Door Staff for Drinks.Withersppons after for a nice meal, again packed but we managed to get a table in the new part upstairs ie formally the Bank where i had that incident in, Son in Law obtained service by Apps SAVES A LOT OF TIME AND DID,NT HAVE TO WAIT LONG FOR DRINKS OR MEAL, i suppose a phone is benaficial at times ie WIFE POINTING OUT WHAT I,M MISSING hmmm, heres just a few pics from Festival.
Yes an enjoyable Day Kim, just wish they,d realise what T TOTLAR means though, kept on trying to ply me with drinks at the Pubs, i,m quite happy with a glass of Coke, i did try to drink a couple though, had to laugh when i stated a Lager and Lime at Withers, they brought a pint of lager and a pint of lime with ice cubes in hmmmm DRINK SOME OF THE LAGER DAD AND THEN POUR SOME OF THE LIME IN hmmm. Wife stated this Afternoon that i was being lazy ie laid back feet up watching tele, i explained i was still suffering from those Saturday Night drinks, think she called me a WOOS again, I,M SURE IT,S THAT WORD BUT MY HEARING AINT THAT GOOD.
Normal routine this Morning, Weather a bit dismal but still had time for a Chat on going through Town, bit of Ironing to Finish then off to top of Banking in Garden with Wife for a tidy up, everything growing brilliant she just had a bit of pruning to do, when she went off in Afternoon to see to Dogs then pick one of Daughters up from Work I CHILLED TO AN OLDIE ON TV, in other words NOT A BAD DAY.
Wifes been moaning for a while now on the large clumps of Ivy covering some parts of the Hawthorne Trees, keeps threatening to GET SOMEONE IN, so Today after Dinner i got Ladders out and with her Percission started cutting with Shears, managed to get a few large Clumps, Wife pointed out a couple of Branches that needed cutting not there THERE hmmm i,m at the top of Ladder and being grazed by sharp Hawthorne needles, I did manage to remove a few more but Wifes lack of sympathy for a Maturie made me come down Ladder and put them away WATS UP BOB YOU WERE DOING FINE hmmm thought i,d mention AYE AND COULD HAVE BROKEN MY NECK but NO just stated i was suffering with arm and started removing all the cuttings to Garden Bin, SHE,S HARD BUT CRAFTY WITH IT IS WIFE.
I,d told Youngest Grandson on Saturday that it was a Teddy Bear Picnic at Library Today, hence Sarnies outside Weather Permitting plus Games, he truddled into ours this Morning clutching his Teddy Bear TOLD YOU I HAD ONE POPPADAD, he behaved himself all Morning and at 11.30 Wife decided to make up the Sarnies and Treats for us both, i went to my Office to ensuring Letter was still there giving the times . On passing it over to Wife she states BOB YOU IDIOT, IT STATES 18TH, i knew i should have gone to SPECSAVERS like she suggested hmmm thankfully all went well and we had the Picnic at ours plus i took him to Library Club for a couple of hours, had to laugh when his Dad came to pick him up and Wife was telling him, Grandson butted in POPPADAD WAS AN IDIOT AND NEEDS GLASSES hmmm.
Looking after 13yr old Grandson Today, been Poorly with Throat, nearly choked at School on Monday due to it hence a bit hesitant with eating at the moment, he,s just started on Antibiotics so hopefully he,ll improve, i still managed my Dogs visit this Morning but straight home after ie no Chatting and apart from an hour with Wife in Garden this Evening i,ve had an easy Day, still good Weather in Cleckie, just wish it would Rain during Night and clear the Air.
Son and Youngest Grandson paid us a visit this Morning before heading off to Play Gymn, Wife had just called on to Garden Centre for some Plans ten minutes before, was just about to tell Son of her whereabouts when suddenly her Car appears, SHE,D FORGOTTON HER PURSE, hmmmm and i,m the one who needs his head screwed on or he,d forget it JUST CANNOT GET AROUND THAT COMMENT BUT WIFE SEEMS TO LIKE IT. She went back again an hour later when Son left hence after Dinner we spent a couple of hours planting , BETTER THAN SITTING ON YOUR BACKSIDE AND WATCHING OLD FILMS hmmm lets just think about that THINK HER LOOK SAYS IT ALL who am i to argue and it was a nice Day and a baby Robin kept me company, hence no complaints.
Ruddy Arm still playing up, tried exercising Yesterday but strength in Right Arm Weak, also lost a bit of Muscle in it , Wife stated ACCEPT THE FACT THAT YOUR AGING BOB hmmmm think i,ll be stubborn a bit longer yet ie will try again Today, i may be as Wife states AN AWKWARD RUDDY SOD THAT WON,T GO TO DOCTORS, but i,ll perservere for a couple of Weeks and decide, hopefully i,ll prove her wrong AGAIN.
Did a bit better Today but still have,nt managed to straighten Right Arm completely, but i,ll keep trying, another nice Day in Cleckie, at least i,ve no problems Leg wise, i enjoy walking on to visit Dogs hence no complaints, still managing the Creases and most importantly still being Cheerful, cannot beat a laugh and Wifes comments at times gives me many of them THOSE INWARDLY ONES OF COURSE, she def keeps me motivated.
Busy Day, had Youngest Grandson and 13yr old Grandson, eldest took over my Computer and Youngest wanted to watch Star Wars, At Twelve Wife made Packed Lunch for me and Youngest, Teddy Bears Picnic at Library HE,D EVEN BROUGHT ME A PETER RABBIT so you won,t be lonely Poppadad hmmm, set off at 12.30, stomach rumbling at the smell of Wifes and Grandsons Dinner, it was One o Clock before myself and Grandson could eat ours.No complaints from either of us, we Scoffed the lot and he enjoyed his Fun and Games after, he insisted he was having a Sleepover at ours hmmm, fraid i was knackered and Wife was preparing Tea for Six, it was half six before his Parents picked him up hence him enjoying his Tea at ours, NOW IT,S CHILLING TIME.
Still trying to get as many as possible to save our RED HOUSE MUSEUM in Gomersal, part of the Bronte History, been closed for two Years now by Kirklees Council who are craftily trying to sell it, i would mind but those that looked after the grounds plus helped out WERE VOLLUNTEERS, lovely Building.I was talking to our local Priest Yesterday at Library and he to felt outrage at the Kirklees attitude, as he stated WE HAVE BRONTE HISTORY, LUDDITE HISTORY AND SO MUCH MORE AND THE BUILDINGS PLAY A GREAT PART OF LOOKING BACK ON THAT ERA, THEY ARE IRREPLACEABLE.Wish we could go back to SPENBOROUGH Days ie before the time of being ruled by Huddersfield, we were a great Community that looked after and Honoured our local History grrr RANT OVER SMILEY FACE BACK ON.
Ironing catch up then a bit of Polishing HAD TO LOOK BUSY WHILE WIFE DID SHOPPING, Eldest Grandson called in for a couple of hours and we had a good laugh watching Flash Gordon, DID YOU THINK IT GOOD WHEN YOU WATCHED IT AT PICTURES GRANDAD, funnily enough i did, but the special effects nowadays make it look dated, after Wife gave Grandson a lift Home i decided to do a bit of Training, STILL SUFFERING THROUGH. Now myself and Wife are chilling, she made a Jug of Beverage , Tastes ok and theres def some white Rum in it, hence i,ll sip it slowly.
Nice Sunday lay in with Breakfast in Bed which i reckon i deserved ie WIFE HAD ME SAT IN GARDEN WATCHING BATS FLYING AROUND, GAME OF DARTS AND THEN MUSIC TIME, DANCING TO ELVIS, managed to persuade her i was beat when it got to 12.30, mind you she had stated MAKE SURE YOU PERSUADE ME TO GO TO BED FOR 12 , I WAS KNACKERED LAST WEEK WITH YOU KEEPING ME UP SO LATE hmmmmm i keep my mouth shut , it,s she that calls me a WIMP when i dare to state HAVE YOU SEEN THE TIME. Nice relaxing Day, Family visited for a couple of hours fro Four o Clock, Dogs here as well wanting attention, but i,ve been told no more Treats for them VETS ORDERS that,ll prove awkward to beguin with, they check my Pockets and if no Treats i,m def going to be in there bad books.
