Re: Moods anybody have them..late at night

I am kind of in shock ,the post lady has just hand delivered a letter..an air mail letter from My late Mothers Solicitors. No secret how My Sister and Myself had more than a tough time with her.
She changed her Will so many times that it was just a standard Joke towards the end of her life..She did some wicked things though even involving my late Dad.

Her famous words to me would be, you Sister is in for a shock when I and dead..I use to think , guess I am then, also.
The fortune went to our oldest Son whom we have no wish to have contact with..likewise him us
But three years on..Got a little something after all..Don't feel much though and certainly very okish so what kind of feelings.
I shall spend it though

My late father worked with one of the oddfellows, so knew about the flats before they were advertised. 5 Guineas each week which we had to pay with cash to their Lodge in person, got to see inside...

Wandered OT there a tad, but one day I was using my new Salter Scales they had a plastic bowl sitting on the weighing part...
the thing is , I cannot recall how a whole or was it a crack, appeared in the bowl
He heated up a hot poker like a soldering iron of today but not electrical, On our new Gas Cooker
He had a flat piece of plastic and heated the edges carefully...but

Now there was a big hole in it..I lost my temper and threw a whole bag of sugar at him...We had new Vinyl floor covering that we had purchased and that was a least better than the floor boards that were insitu when we took over the rental contract.

We had very little else in the flat except a lounge carpet and TV. Well of course we had a new Bed but that was all there was initially. He had been away one year (don't ask) and so had little chance to save any money.

Last time I ever throw a bag of Sugar though..omg the clearing up was terrible..hand brush and scuttle...wet cloths...nothing else I had to use.

We still laugh about it...It was over immediately, as we had sugar to clear up:blush

I have learnt a lot from my Husband as he is well he was a very cool calm and collective type. Right from the off I was the Banker, though ..
That's an interesting story, Dianne What a nightmare though having to clean all that up!
