Grizzly Tales of Gruesome Kids

My little baby boy had chicken pox this week when I looked after him.  He loves this programme and we watched back to back recordings of it and again the next day.  I am quite hooked now!

Nagsbo

I listened to the tape of the woman who is Britain's worst nagger.  She could make a fortune as a dominatrix from men who want to be severely humiliated or dominated!

Princess Eugenie 

I thought the fashion  experts were being very  diplomatic when they described her £700 outfit as “eye catching!” 

Jet Washing Protection

After my last attempt with the jet washer, these rather stylish, red ankle wellies caught my eye, so I bought them to protect my feet!

Wrong Car   

I spent a while on Sunday trying to get my car unlocked outside B &Q.  Then the penny dropped.  I was at the wrong car which was identical to mine in make and colour.  Warning bells should have told me something was wrong when I noticed the immaculate condition of the interior!!!

Tea Bags 

Yuk.  Ran out of tea bags and found this little pot with some in.  WRONG!  A cup of bouquet garni with milk tastes foul!

 ALDI

I picked up a pair of small binoculars that were lying on top of some packets and went to hand them in to the staff.  I slunk away when she told me in front of the checkout queue that they were selling them and people leave goods everywhere that they don’t want!

 I certainly think my brain went on holiday this week and didn't leave a note!

I have just eaten the first strawberres I have ever grown.  They were lovely, nothing like some of the shop bought ones.   Now I know I can do it, I'll plant some more.  I did love this little fellow, he made me think of an owl with a swollen eye!

As I am writing this, some things are coming back to me after I have posted it.  To save boring anyone who is reading it, I will put any new stuff in to the relevant chapter and print it in this weekly blog as well.

Chapter 3.

We played French skipping, two balls ......................................................................................

When we wanted to play a game that used a lot of people,  used to hook up with each and walk round the playground calling out "Who wants to play" ie, The Big Ship Sails Through the Ally Ally O, etc.   When we wanted to play The Farmer's In His Den, we used to have to get a boy to play.  We would make an arch and he would be in his den.  He would then want a wife and would choose, usually the prettiest girl.  She wanted a child, so she chose someone and so on.  The lyrics are as follows: 

 

The farmer's in his den
The farmer's in his den
Eee eye addy-oh
The farmer's in his den

The farmer wants a wife
The farmer wants a wife
Eee eye addy-oh
The farmer wants a wife

The wife wants a child
The wife wants a child
Eee eye addy-oh
The wife wants a child

The child wants a dog
The child wants a dog
Eee eye addy-oh
The child wants a dog

The dog wants a bone
The dog wants a bone
Eee eye addy-oh
The dog wants a bone

We all pat the dog
We all pat the dog
Eee eye addy-oh
We all pat the dog

(All of the kids go crazy patting the poor 'dog'!)

The person who got to be the dog, used to dread as we all patted them “very gently”.  Not! 

 

I wouldn’t have liked to clear up the mess when she exploded!  ..........................................................

As you can see, I was quite gullible.  There was a couple of sayings that were used at the time.  Someone would say to you,  “Say knife and fork”.  So you would say “Knife and fork” and they would reply “Oh teacher told you not to talk!”  This was a bit alarming the first time it was said to you, as was “I’m telling on you”, and you would say “why” and they would say “Z”. However, when my dad told us not to step in the battery acid spilt on the floor because it was corrosive, my brothers and I would dip out shoes  tentively in and out very quickly, just to see what would happen!

I saw this fellow when I visited Dickens' World.  He certainly didn't swagger like Jagger!
