Dear Diary,

Have spent the day visitin poorly sick person in hospital. Spent half of visitin time in emergency as collapsed at prices charged in car park. Tis no wonder people are sick. Nurse left trolley at bedside of sick person, so bandaged sick person head to toe in order to get moneys worth. Also put plasters on car park attendants peeces will not be able to visit sick person again in near future.

Tried to do 7500 piece jigsaw.was too hard so glued all pieces together and cut into easier shapes.picture is now rubbish but have put lid of box in bin so no-one will know.

Dear, Java's Diary
If I had to pay to park at a hospital I would collapse as well, why do you have to pay to go to the hospital? Do they not get enough of your money, oops scratch that diary I forgot you don't pay when you go into the hospital, you have the national health..... I am probaly gonna get in trouble now, oh that is the story of my life so far this year, so I'll just quit while I am a head.

Dear Diary,

Went to local pub last night for change of scene. Sat next to farmers synchronising watches for daily tractor run. Were drowning sorrows as apparently only managed to hold up forty seven cars yesterday. Record is ninety three by four tractors working as team.

Had shot at darts and thought about joining teamcaptain said no as cost of parking at hospital is too high. Had shot at dominoes and thought about joining teamcaptain also said no as joining dots on dominoes is not allowed.

Asked for cherry and umbrella in drink. Pub does not do cocktails so ended up with tomato crisp and dart in half pint of shandy. Was surprisingly good so had two have full set of darts but am still not allowed on team.

Lovely night so decided to walk home. Lovely night lasted exactly seven minits then not so lovely night. Much wind and rain so put hood up. Hood hampers vision so strayed into ditch was filthy and lost shoe in mud but passing polis kindly gave me lift to station. Am now charged with being hoodie and carrying offensive weapons. Pub denies giving me darts. Have sat in cell for eleven hours as husband is stuck in traffic due to tractors. Wunner if polis need new member of gun club.....

Dear Diary,

Tried to make up for being arrested by making lovely meal. Was complete disaster. Seems sweet potatoes are not ordinary potatoes with sugar on top. Have ruined best pan but have new recipe for toffeewill contact McCowans later in day to see if they are intrestit

Found carrot shaped like crossed fingers so bought lottery ticketwas all excited and dancing around with husband as had six numbers up but was checking draw from three weeks ago. Husband has gone for refund on bail money.

Is blowing gale outside but dog wants walk and keeps making bolt for door. Have put toffee on paws but dog is smart and has licked some offcannot open mouth and has only unglued two legs but is still trying for door.

Wunner if approaching policemen like toffee..

Dear Diary,

Policemen very understanding. Have agreed to drop charges if I volunteer for community service. Have joined group of ten and am only one without asbo so am clearly inadequate.

Have been assigned to help frail old lady. Have actually been assigned to help sixty three cats who let frail old lady live in house. Sixty three cats can sense am dog person. Many claws and much hissing. Will bring dog tomorrow.

Tried to clean house but cats get in way. Threw bit of fish out back door but all cats went for cat flap at same time. Now only sixty one cats. May achieve asbo status sooner than expected.

Frail old lady is keen on sewing. Is making cushion for each cat. Ran out of cats at sixty one cushions so had to create diversion by sewing fingers together. Frail old lady is not very good nurse. Was happy to let me bleed to death while she looked for missing cats. Caused further diversion by hiding cushions but frail old lady followed trail of blood and found them in cistern. Now have stitches in arms and legs as well as fingersold lady is not as frail as she looks.

Was not allowed on bus to get home and husband is still in huff over lottery so had to walk. Was followed by thirty seven cats. Have no fish to throw so may have to use dog.will have cup of tea and see if dog grins.

PS. Cheers all.....but this is gonna get very borin if we dont get everybody tae join in....give us yer daily read.... biggrin.gif

Dear JD. A think a found wan o them bloomin cats - I went tae a retirement home doon the coast today and nearly tripped over a resident cat ... but in 'suddenly' dodging it I caught my foot on a zimmer and landed in a heap on the carpet ... Didny think anywan had seen my acrobatics but on looking up saw a wee group of oldies sat smiling silently at me ... Musta thought the Christmas entertainment had arrived late? grrrrr blink.gif

laugh.gif probly made their day.... biggrin.gif ...

Dear Diary,

Went back to old lady. Only thirty six cats followed so had to hide one more cushion. Old lady wanted to sort out attic so phoned Sothebys in advance. Lady is old so figured stuff must be old. Was wrong. Old lady is hoarder of empty tins and bottles. Have packed eighty one boxes of empty tins and bottles, one dead mouse and two stuffed cats. Snooty man from Sothebys came. Did not want stuffed cats but had suggestion for where I could put them. Am pretty sure snooty man failed biology O level.

Went to supermarket to get trolley for moving boxes to recycling point. Was followed by only sixteen cats so rest must be in cream puff. Discarded fourteen trolleys but still managed to get wobbly wheel. Trolley only holds six boxes so made many trips. Put green glass in clear glass bin by mistake. Jobsworth watching so had to retrieve green glass. Have many cuts and bruises. Sixteen cats spied two stuffed cats and wanted reunion so have many scratches also. On way back saw many small children running scared to mummies. Big Issue seller gave me free copy. Think am now official mad bag lady of town.

Got home and went for lovely bubble bath. Must remember in future bubble bath is very nippy when person has many cuts and scratches. Slipped in panic to get out of bath so now have head split open but cannot get stitches as am still banned from hospital. Am staying in bed for rest of week. Cannot possibly come to any harm there.

Posted by: Geezabrek 9th Jan 2007, 09:42pm

Java... pop an auld deed fish in the cardboard recycle unit ... they'l aw follow the smell and then enjoy the lovely wee hoos they've found and likely stay (mibby). PS Run like hell when you see them go in otherwise they mite see ya and follow ya bak hame??

Dear JD.. Went tae wurk today and parked like everybuddy else in the street near the building (nae car park fur us pal) and went back to car about 45 minutes later and bless them, I got a parking ticket fur not displaying wan of them 'parking discs' (forgoat) .... grrrr.... doubt if I can get aff it, but have submitted a challenge / response to say they only popped their initialls on the document when it says 'signature' .. I will challenge it as far / often as possible just to make them wurk and will feel better knowing they have had to earn my 30 (if paid within 14 days - 60 if not). mad.gif

S'onybuddy's diary, Ron.....all contributions very welcome.... biggrin.gif

Dear Diary,

Am no longer poorly sick. Covered self in calamine lotion and germoline. Husband came into room in dark and thought ghost of granny was in bed so is in huff again. Am not sure why pink and white dotty person reminds him of granny, must look into family tree.

Had visit from few friends, but have noted missing names and will save for emotional blackmail later.

Went to butchers to get stuff for second attempt at lovely meal. Butcher is very nice manwill mince anything. Except dog. Enquired at inopportune moment and butcher is now very nice man with three fingers. Did not charge for extra bits. Decided to try spaghetti bolognaise. Was not sure which wine is good with spaghetti so bought four different bottles. Was very proud of self. Made trial batches of spaghetti and tried with each wine. Woke up thinking husband had forgiven all, but was dog licking sauce from face. Could not remember which combination was best, but immaterial since no wine or spaghetti left. Am looking particularly sexy with mixture of sauce, calamine and germoline so am thinking of bringing out own range of skin products. Will phone Avon as soon as dog gets off me.

Dear diary. Kept looking on the email fur a reply fae the mad-mullah-traffic-wallahs and nothing there - wundered whit the letter in post wiz aboot when I saw their 'name / heading' - Open'd it and it's fae them!! Agggh!! Quick skan and there is nuthing about a fine, so read it again (slower) and they are only telling me they got problems with their pooters and they are sorry but will get back to me later? Is it an omen or whit? Time will tell - at least that auld shilling is still in my bank account. dry.gif . Went fur a ride yisterday and saw a blawn over lorry and a guy stood talking to the polis. Didny look too happy? Loasa wind here and s'no aw mine. rolleyes.gif

seems yer ok furra wee 5 mintys then yeel get that ither yin ye dinny want pal am no wishin it oan ye mind am jist sympathetic furr yer wee problem wi the traffic state o things etc. Dear diary it happent tae ma son wance he thoat the polis furrgoat him cos well he was right enough to be in a transit lane fur only wan person cosefter a certain time of day anywan cin use this wee transit lane so ma son was driving & heading towards it to drive oantae next portion of lane knowing it was efter 7pm at night & this lane was usable tae anywan efter 6pm noo bare in mind noo he hadnt yet reached the sign tae state the entry point of lane yet polis pult him up & widdney let the boy tok they telt him tae shutup & take it like a man dain wrang should dae.

Sure enuff they wurr wrang he heard nowt then 3mths later they pit oot a warrant furr his arrest as he had an unpaid 75 dollar fine which they selt oer to a debt collecter who by the time telt ma son that they now were owed 300bucks by my son & his licence blocked indefinitely as well as a warrent furr his arrest .

Ma poor law abiding son was devastatit as he had cash he`d never owed anywan any time a single thing in his life & noo it was up tae 300 he asked why the debt collector said it`s cos of interest & time to place warrent & cancel licence which he also had to pay to get reinstatit tae as well as the 3 hunner. mad.gif

The stinkinn pigs took it & they knew he was right & they were wrong but they recomendit he sue thum which would cost merr than worth yes he would win it but thats awe it does intae bargain of paying all court fees etc furr Lawyers who telt ma son jist shake it aff as bad experience costs will be too high too prove yer point noo Diary I ask ye how sad dog is that????The boy was mortifyed so he was as he truly is law abiding tae.a cin oanly shake ma heid & hope yer gonna be awericht Geezabrek & same will not happen tae ye pal.The wee man in the streets gotta get a break soon.

Am sure yer right lindamac, there must be a limit that folks can put up with before they snap en-masse... We used to laugh and say that 'they wid tax us fur breathin if they could' and now they do and call it 'green taxes'.... Sorry fur yer lad = unlikely to ever forget that eh? mad.gif Dear Diary - Well, as for myself, I am sure that they will gie me a fine soon enough (but still - not yet), but I am certain that I've got the bill down by making them work for it ... just a few more 'enquiries' to do with them, then I'lll pay up = never just 'give in'... a few phone calls /letters
means they are using up their resourses to just talk / write back to you, so you are eating into their profit. (widny mind so much if the profit wiz used for something 1/2 sensible - please don't tell me it keeps the rates doon) .. dry.gif Got a man in to fit a new bathroom... didny realize how nice it is to wash in the kitchen sink and wee in the @*^$es .... Still, nearly done noo. :-)

Geeza, we had similar thing....huge sign on new shower saying apply sealant to outside, so where did they apply it?....

Dear Diary,

Have had very exhausting day. Took son to play in football match. Tis stupid game at this level. Can only assume referee had domestic before match. Did not give penalty for son getting mud on strip. Has obviously never had to wash strips. Tried to tell son that strip needs washed before mud sets in but ref sent me off pitch and carried on with game. Ran up and down side lines throwing water on son to rinse strip. Tried to clean ball when game stopped for minute but was told to replace on penalty spot and go home. Am being blamed for team losing. Tis last time I will supply oranges.

Had lovely bath and applied Oil of Ugly Seven Signs of Ageing…am currently showing nine signs of ageing so am not sure how to treat other two. Was very tired after all running around so lay down in darkened room. Tis very relaxing to hear only sound of own heartbeat. Tis very stressful when sound of own heartbeat stops. Turns out was not heartbeat….was bass from son playing music. Have put all cds through dishwasher.

Dear Dairy. Today.
Brushed snow off car bonnet. Drove up road. Opened car window to help demisting. Snow from roof blew inside car blinding me. Scary braking to a halt. Removed snow from roof. Drove to supermarket with frozen hands. Car park nearly full. Had to park 200 yards from store. At store entrance, only clapped out trolleys left. Selected 'best' one with both front wheels jammed facing inwards. Pushing trolley akin to pushing a car with brakes on. Sweat pouring before entering store. Store heating out of order. Good job as body heat rising fast. Discovered that moving trolley was easier in reverse. Discovered that trolley wanted to go to the right. Discovered that when turning a left-hand corner I had to make a 360 degree turn to the right, catching trolley before having to do another 360. Discovered that by lifting and carrying the front of the trolley and pushing it backwards, no 360 turn was neccessary. Nearest and dearest meanwhile is piling groceries etc in trolley which is becoming quite heavy. Discover that a heavy trolley pushed backwards with wheels raised from floor weighs a ton and wants to go where IT wants to go. Discover how quickly people will get out of the way of a maniacal trolley- pusher screaming down aisles out of control. Discover that floor by fish display is WET when traversing it at 20 MPH. Discover how easy it is to remove a chunk of metal from fish display counter with trolley. Discover how painful a jagged bit of sheet metal can be to my kneecap. Discover that nearest and dearest is nowhere to be seen. Discover nearest and dearest hiding by dairy counter as I flash by her trying to avoid staff and customers who were trying to grab me before I did any more damage. Discover how dangerous wet shoes are in my predicament. Discover very large security guard blocking my progress. Brave man pushes front of trolley into wall. Discover how painful it is to smash my face against a steel mesh trolley. Lady at check-out says 'Would you like any help with packing Sir?'.
Night-night, dairy.

Dear Diary,

Am not with child. Am just greedy. Was made to face facts when confronted by son about story involving bar of Galaxy and ingenious swan who stole it. Have looked on internet for self help group but cannot find one dealing exclusively with Galaxy, Hershey kisses and mini rolls so have applied for lottery grant to set up own. Am calling it Gherkins Anon.

Held first meetings in village hall. Was huge test of willpower as village hall is next to village shop and shopkeeper refused to clear shelves of offending items. Hid behind beer display and pounced on four customers. All refused to join as name badges were made from galaxy foil. Tis not my fault each badge needed whole foil. Am going to find secret stash of mini rolls.

He’s tae be remindit tae brush his hair in the morning…. but he wants tae travel the world.

Noo ah’ve no exactly travelled the world masel….but ah know it’s no as easy as he seems tae think it is….wisny so long ago he wis fightin evil wi’ the mutant turtles, an ah’m pretty sure he’s sortin them oot tae put in his rucksack….he’s come a long wey since thinking the chairman o’ Newcastle United wis the man that fixes the seats, but still ah’m no sure he’s worldy wise enuff tae be let loose ….he loses his busfare oan a regular basis….he faws asleep oan the bus hame an ends up twinty mile further up the road….whit’ll he dae when he canny jist phone his mammy tae come get him?

Dear Diary,

Ah hear thit Java's wee boy wants tae go travellin' an' she's worried sick. Ah huv tae tell hur that it's somethin' that happens tae a' us mammy's. Ah think it's us mammy's that don't realise jist how grown up oor weans really ur, We imagine that they wullnae be able tae cope..... but efter experiencin' this wi' ma wean's a few years ago, (ah made all sort o' excuses an' wid hae done anythin' tae stop thim fae gaun), ah realised jist how grown up they wur. They came back fae their travels much mair mature fur their experiences. Ah used tae take ma youngest tae school and college in the car, it wiz purely ma fault that she didnae know her way aroon' ur whit bus tae get when she phoned me up tae come an' get her 'cause she wiz wiz she gonnie find her wey roon' Thailand an' Indonesia????? But she did an' also spent time in Australia and New Zealand. It's awfu' hard but us mammy's huv goet to learn tae let go of the apron strings 'cause we don't want oor we'ans saying' later in life that we stopped thim. If ye want me tae be honest ah'm gled that mine ur past that stage an' a' settled doon and merried because it is a worrying time but then intit great that they ur gettin' the chance tae see the world?...something we could only dream aboot!

Ah hear that Lindyloo is much better noo, thank goodness! An 'her man is a gem!'s mine ah'd be loast withoot him at the moment, he's runnin' efter me somethin' rotten!!! He wiz really runnin' efter me yesterday as ah scooted roon' the toon in ma wee power scooter, poor sowell hud trouble keepin' up wi' me. Ah hud so much shoappin', ye couldnae see me fur boxes and carrier bags sittin' oan ma scooter....when we goet back tae the car, ma purchases filled the boot! Mind ye ah'm a bit worried that he's daein' too much, he's lookin awfu' tired but he never complains! When ma leg's mended ah'll huv think o' somethin' tae make it a' up to him! rolleyes.gif

Awe bless wee Max Catherine, foldin' a' his durty claes, how could ye possibly be angry wi' the wee darlin'....just show him how tae work the washing machine an' the iron, then he'll dae it properly next time laugh.gif

Tossdanturnt aw night again….nummer two son hus decided he wants tae spend his gap year in Japan…..ah knew they ninja turtles wur a big mistake, damn you purple donatello……aye, an you annaw Splinter....

Ah’ve tellt him he’ll no suit a kimono anna ponytail but his ears are jist paintit oan at the minit..

Ah'm worried he husny thoat through the practicalities, ye know… … like how he disny like rice and boaks at the thoata raw fish…. …an the only foldin paper he knows aboot is the kind that comes oot ma purse so a life oan the road dain’ the origami’s oot…

He says he wants tae be ‘alone wi’ his thoughts’….an ah sympathise, cos ma thoughts are never alone, thur ay interuptit wi sumdy sayin ‘it’s a well known fact its mair hygienic tae leave them tae drip’ or ‘ah know ah left it there..’

Ah’ll gie him a wee taster by booking him intae the Sammy Ling Temple….thirty quid a night fur a beansprout anna mattress oan the flair….disny even include the orange dress….still, cheaper than a flight tae Japan an it is a lovely place…

Ah’ve had a nature lesson the day. Well, ah say a lesson, mair a reality check really. Ah wis takin ma dogs furra walk. It’s a lovely frosty day, everythin sprayed white, birds singing, and so on… felt like that bit in Snow White, ye know, where she’s walking along an aw the animals and birds are foalyin her…lovely. Onyway, ah’m walkin along an all of a sudden, whooooosh……feathers everywhere. A hen harrier picks aff a wood pigeon. Noo far be it frae me tae tell the big man whit tae name his animals, but sumdy wants tae teach that hen harrier whit a hen looks like. Ah wis willin tae consider that the wood pigeon wis mibees a cross dresser, an wis in fact, a hen in disguise. But ah don’t think so, cos aw it’s wee wood pigeon pals wur greetin.

Onyway, such is life, ah walks oan, keeping an eye oot for ma mortal enemy, rabbitus tuffiicus….Now, ah don’t let ma dogs chase rabbits…but it’s kinda difficult keeping them oan track when the rabbits sit up oan thur back legs wi thur wee front paws giving it ‘come an have a go if ye think yer hard enuff…’….ah’m tempted tae jist let ma muppets go, ye know….

A wee bit further oan an ah find the hauf eaten remains of an eel. Ah know exactly whit’s responsible fur this. The nutter. So named by ma son who saw wan oan a walk wi his (Inglish) daddy and wis tellt it wis an otter. Tae his wee Scots ears, it wis a nutter, so the name stuck. Noo ah know they’re protected. Awwwww, thur big eyes, int they cute, int they lovely….blah di blah …well, naw, thur no….they kill things fur the sake o’ killin them….they take a bite and leave the thing tae die a painful death…..

So ah’d hud enough…ah walked back hame, respectfully removing ma hat as a passed the funeral procession fur the wee wood pigeon…ah wunner how much it costs furra flat in the city……

Dear Diary,

Ah jist read a shout frae Anne1 an it reminded me o’ something that still makes me laugh…

Ma mammy wis in hospital early last year an although they widny admit it, the staff let her become dehydrated tae the point where her mind wis wanderin. Noo don’t get me wrong, it wis a serious situation, an we wur really worried, but sometimes in they kinda situations, ye have tae find something tae smile aboot. Onyway, she’s there lyin in the bed, no physically able tae get oot the bed, but still tryin tae, ye know. Then she says ‘whits that wee dug dain here’….so we’re getting really worried cos she’s insistin there’s a wee dug under her bed. Eventually, we tell her the doctor put the dug there tae stop her frae getting oot the bed.
“Whit kinda dug is it?” says ah....

”It’s a wee crossmyloof” she says…

It’s funny whit the subconscious brings intae yer heid intit… laugh.gif

My husband was on morphine when he had his accident, it gave him a great imagination, he was talking to folk on the ward that weren't there! When the registrar told us just before he went down to the theatre that they might have to amputate his leg, my stomach turned somersaults but my husband just lay there totally unperturbed, saying 'well if that's what ye've got to do then so be it! Luckily the wonderful skill of the surgeon managed to save his leg! We can laugh about it now but it wasn't funny at the time. Just as well he's still got 2 legs because wi' ma broken leg at the moment, between us wi' widnae huv a leg tae staun oan! laugh.gif

Ah need a hobby...Joggin, ah thoat....that's the answer. Ah'm wan o' these wans that needs tae get intae the zone tae do somethin, ye know, whole hog. Ah've the legwarmers an sweatbands frae three years ago when ah bought the stuff but couldny find the zone. As luck would hiv it, thur twinty percent lycra, so they still fit.

So ah gets in the zone, ah've ma legwarmers an sweatbands oan, hair tied back that tight ah've gied masel a facelift, an ah'm good tae go. Ah dont know who's idea it wis tae put a full length mirror by the door, but it wis a big mistake.

Ah'm jist gled tae huv four strandsa hair sittin the wey ah want them, only wan eye bloodshot an that ah've remebert tae pit ma troosers oan.

Dear Diary,

There was a spider in the bathroom sink this morning. Now don’t get me wrang….ah don’t particularly like spiders, but they don’t usually induce terror in me either. But this wisny an ordinary spider….this wis a spider oan a mission…..ah could see it in its eyes… aye, ah could see its eyes, cos it wis jinormous… sittin right aside the hot tap….s’awright, ah thinks, ah’ll use the cauld tap…..then ah’m thinking, ah wunner how fast it kin move….ma brains sayin ther’s no way the spider’s getting frae the hot tap tae the cauld tap an up ma sleeve an intae ma ear afore ah huv the chance tae move, but ah must hiv two brains, cos the ither wans sayin ‘aye, but it might’….at this point, neither o’ the brains are telling me jist tae go intae the kitchen tae wash ma hauns, so they’re no much good as brains, but thur aw av goat, ye know, so ah hifty make the best o’ it….

Onyway….spider an me are eyeballin each other and ah swear ah hear it sayin ‘d’ye feel lucky punk’…..the closest thing tae me is a towel an ah’m thinking ah could jist throw the towel ower it, but there’s something in its eyes telling me it wid jist yase the towel tae dry its feet so it could get a better grip oan me……so we carry oan starin each other oot……an ah admit it…..ah bucklt….ah left an went intae the kitchen…..fur aw ah know the spiders still sittin waitin fur me, cos ah’ve no went back in since……ah wunner whit makes ye completely irrational sometimes…..

Dear Diary,
I peeped at java's diary and read her story about a spider and eating them at night while we're asleep. I've got to say that I have had a terrible shock, apparently there are lots of beetles and insects in the cacao plant that is used for making chocolate, and they get crushed with the cocoa I looked at my Cadbury's flake and I thought, 'should I eat it, I know that I'm eating crushed beetles and insects with every bite,' then I thought, 'ah but it tastes nice....should I? shoudn't I? do I? don't?' The urge was too great I'm afraid, I'm a chocoholic and even that widnae put me aff ma chocolate, beetles, insects an' a' laugh.gif laugh.gif

Dear Diary,

Ah'm turnin ye intae a problem page furra day...

I have two friends (anno...amazin intit..biggrin.gif) very close, the other not quite so, but a friend just the same. Some time ago, the close friend lent £30 to the other who was going through a difficult time with her husband through alcohol. The couple seem to be managing to sort things out, and the wife gave the money to the husband to repay my close friend, so she thinks it was paid back, but it wasnt. My close friend is a single parent who works three jobs to keep her two boys and her life is a daily struggle. She doesn't want to mention it to the other friend incase it causes problems between the couple, but I know she cant afford to lose the money.
I've already offered, but she absolutely wont take it from me.

My question is, should I mention it to the other friend or keep out of it?

Their ponders a dilemma java, would your close friend appreciate you meddling?
Think I would not get involved, hard sometimes to mind your own business.


Posted by: Melody 3rd Mar 2007, 08:56am

Java I would tell the friend that her husband never handed over the money and let her deal with it ( I think). I'm sure she would rather know. ( I think)
Then sometimes it's best to do nothing. Basically ah've no got a clue. Sorry pal. Ah'm hopeless in these situation. That's how ah've nae pals. laugh.gif

wub.gif Step Back Java dolls because yees may all end up hurt hen this is one battle yer wee pal needs tae fight oan her ain steam not with the lady friend but her lady friends Husband,she could say oh I realised your wife assumed you gave me that 30 quid she borrowed from me She alerted me to the fact that you were to pass that cash onto me so just in case its all gotten lost in translations etc I thought I would alert you that you haven`t yet brought that cash to me & being as I need it could you get that to me by end of the week or else I may have to let her know I haven`t yet got the 30 quid off you as yet, maybe ye forgot thats yer ain business but a sorta need every penny a cin earn so pal will ye get it tae me by this friday then yer wife won`t know ye forgot haha make lighthearted joke of it ye know?husbad.Truth is her pals Hubbys not chinged a bit by sounds of it,He may even deny it But the pal should know the nature of the beast inside her man ye know.

I had this happen to me wherein I babysat a friends children 5 days a week so that they could get oan thurr feet & they always had too many serious problems anyhoo Lynn would drop her 2yr old Son off & I would get the older one from school with minesin the afternoon, so anyways to cut this laborious story down a bit hen Lynns Hubby was always oan the drink & drove tae my hoose later by an hour or more nearly every other day but a never charged extra at any time & the straw that broke the camels back was the fact Lynn foolishly trusted her hubby to pay me so after many weeks of being short changed etc then came that final straw thing,he didnt pay me for 2 wks in a row now I was owed 100 dollars for each week. Trust me I was saving them many more hundreds in day care etc alone so after being paid the 3rd week a said to him wheres the last 2 wks payments ? he said al give you it tomorow please dont tell Lynn.

after yet another two weeks going by I got payed for them but he still owed me the 200 bucks. The end result was I said to him this is the last day now I will not be having them back so you have untill sunday night before you have to explain why I won`t be taking the boys on Monday Morning,tell her yourself why& I will expect you to tell her you owe me the 200 bucks. Sadly he did,she came to see me & asked me to forgive him he is ill & she asked me to keep kids untill she found another sitter which I did for another 4wks wherein I was eventualy paid the 200bucks owed to me as well. I never lost her friendship because I stayed loving towards her & did all I could to help her find another sitter etc so regretably her hubby had to pay the price even though he tried to deny to Lynn that he even owed it she knew the nature of the beast within her own husband so chose to believe me & Neil.The only person whom can fix this out is yer single mum pal & yer mutual pals Hubby,naewan else. Best of luck to them awe.sad affair this yin sad.gif

Two years ago yesterday, my nephews oldest daughter Charlie died. Yesterday his wife had a miscarrage and was taken to hospital and the youngest daughter Emily was being looked after by her gran, unfortunatly little Emily took a heart attack and died, she was only four. Now I dont pray much but I did last night, prayed for someone to give me an answer why God takes these children and not old fools the likes of me. I have seen death many times and the grief it causes but yesterday was just devistating to see two young peoples lives devistated in such a way it beggers belief. I only hope and pray that they can get over this without too many scars. Jeasus Christ Why.

Ian, there are those on here much more capable than I am of knowing exactly what to say to bring solace in a situation like this. I can only offer my sincere condolences. I hope you and your family can find some comfort from somewhere.

Posted by: georgia 8th Mar 2007, 11:37am

Ian my thoughts and prayers are with your nephew and his wife. To lose a child just doesn't bear thinking about but to lose a 2nd child the same day as suffering a miscarriage must be completely devastating. The poor couple will need a lot of time to come to terms with their losses. I have a 3 friends who all lost their young daughters at the ages of 2, 9 and 15 years. Their worlds collapsed when it happened but time gave them the strength to cope. Like you, I often ask why innocent children are taken, leaving their parents and families to suffer the heartbreak when there are some really evil people around that seem to be excess to requirements to the world They usually live to a ripe old age and take the gift of life for granted, causing others around them nothing but misery. We will never know the answers Ian and I too have questioned God's reasoning at times. My heartfelt sympathy to all at this sad time

Posted by: Isobel 8th Mar 2007, 12:57pm

Ian I am lost for words,hardly know what to say. How can one family take so much.Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.Its always very difficult when you loose a loved one ,but so much more difficult when its young children.

Posted by: ems 8th Mar 2007, 05:16pm

Ian my prayers are with you all at this time, what a dreadful loss for one family to endure. These poor parents will need a so much counselling to help them get over this tragedy. As others have said why are young people taken when we have so much evil in the world. God Bless you all wub.gif

That mammy & daddy tae have lost thurr 2 weans is such a burden & cross tae Bare man Iam soooo very very sorry Ian .

I ask you not to try too hard to understand this cos it is an unfathomable thing that will hurt your heart awe the merr,Remember there is indeed a Devil as well as a God & well Ian God Knew ahead of time what yees could awe bare & he has saw up ahead in the distance. God Knows Ian maybe the weans would have had tae endure merr oan this earth than they will in Heaven(who Knows cos this world cin be evil),again I say tae ye we find nae solace nor peace at this sudden shock of horrendous loss,It will perhaps come down the track tae ye somehow But I cin see why ye would want tae Blame God cos it appears he has the power etc But Ian even In Biblical Times Miracles were not always enough ye know.

May yer grief not destroy you Ian & may ye be a deep & encouraging resource tae yer Faimly The dear parents of these lost babes ,at this time of tradgedy,Allow yersell tae weep & be angry & don`t even care too much who sees ye Ian cos Grief has it`s ain reasons furr healing the soul & well tears are the drops of Blood from a wounded heart so let it oot ,Men cin cry & God help ye feel strong enough tae offer assistance tae yer family just stay near them the now will ye promise yersell that ye cin survive this Ian ?Take care man take care Be safe & manage this burden by sharing it with the cross of Jesus & yer Loved ones who want tae comfort ye. sad.gif Be still & know that this was not God whom hurt you & yours, Be still & know he will be there when yer ready tae let him be there for you dear Man Iam sorry for the losses & the cross you bare.
