Look Grandma a Fruck!!!!!!

There were, according to my father a large number of occasions that I took it upon myself to embarrass my poor parents. I suppose like most children I always took the most inappropriate times to do this, like for example the time when as a small child I asked him in company if condoms came in different sizes, I kid ye not I did... To put it in context it was when the first widely publicized cases of Aids and HIV were beginning to be reported in the press and well children pick up on things more than adults realise and I was obviously curious! Well to carry on a theme, I had various sayings when I was little, inside out became "outside long", reflections became "beflections" and frogs became "frucks", all very innocent apart from when your Grandma doesn't hear what you said quite rightly and poor parents are left to explain, "SHE MEANS FROGS!!!!!!" I was reminded of this when one came to visit the other day specially to frighten Hamish. Poor little sausage, some ornamental pond nearby is missing a resident me thinks!

I finished the sorting hat, much to Sopher's delight, I'm not sure if it managed to sort people into proper houses, but with only a few days to work on it it was the best she was getting out of me!

Its going to come in rather handy for her housewarming party too (Halloween theme anyone) I'm about to start on my costume which will involve lots of ripping up of black material and feathers!
Speaking (or writing) of the Sophers, she, I and a few of her friends went to the Hope Street Festival on Sunday. It was a great day, we went to a free Concert at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall (http://www.liverpoolphil.com/content/AbouttheHall.aspx) a fabulous Art Deco Building and listened to the Orchestra play some fabulous Mendelssohn and Grieg (see the classical music listings I've just added to the sidebar) and went to the Farmer's market and the craft fair where I bought a dinky brooch from a fab stall have a look at some of their ware's at www.myspace.com/landbabyshop


Cute ain't it!!!! made from old receipts pasted onto a jigsaw piece! We saw some street theatre, some buskers and walked past one of the most famous buildings in Liverpool, the Anglican Cathedral... which has given me a great idea for my next post.......


See you on the Flypaper!

We had company over the weekend and they were sharing some of the silly things their friends four year old says in public- the best was when shopping with her mom and my friend Jen, she saw a very overweight woman and said out loud "Look mommy, that lady is round like Winnie the Pooh".

:-P

Oh Sarah you do make me laugh ;-) Stone up the nose eh? (it was scrambled eggs with me!). I do remember my sister saying 'Look mummy it's the Durex dog' when down the paint aisle - remember that big 'Dulux' sheepdog?

I'm glad you are feeling better. x

I found your blog by accident thanks to your mum accidently using you to post on another blog! So hello there! My brother used to live right opposite that cathedral in Liverpool in a big old leaky house, shared with about one hundred others! It was a little spooky looking out at night to see that sight, but still rather lovely (he misses it)
