Sunday “not sayings”

For the past year I have been posting a “Sunday saying” and, before that, a “Sunday sentiment”. Two years worth of not missing a Sunday post is good for me!

However, most of those posts have been “borrowed” from other sources, often from “Brainy Quotes,” although I have added my own comments it has not really been all that creative.

Also, I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but, Sundays are busy days for posts. I suppose that, for some, it is the only day they have that is not full on because of work, school runs, social activities etcetera.

In addition, Facebook reminded that on 15th September 1964 I travelled to Harrogate, in Yorkshire, to join The Army Apprentices College at the start of my Army career. Just how the hell can that be? 54 years ago!

This got me thinking.

I really ought to do something a little bit creative, something that I enjoy, and something that you might enjoy too.

From tomorrow I shall offer you a “Lundi Limerick”.

I used to enter a weekly Limerick challenge, and really enjoyed it. So, look out for a little bit of silliness. That’s me:

The start of a new line of posts.

They may have some ghoulies and ghosts.

I’m sure there’ll be curses

in some of the verses

but hopefully won’t include boasts.

Sunday sayings #50

and here is a valuable lesson – source unknown

I was out walking with my 4½ year-old son.

He picked something off the ground and started to put it in his mouth. I took the item away from him and I asked him not to do that.

“Why?” my son asked.

“Because it’s been on the ground; you don’t know where it’s been, it’s dirty and probably has germs”, I replied.

At this point my son looked at me with total admiration and asked,  “Mum, how do you know all this stuff? You are so smart.”

I was thinking quickly and replied,  “All mums know this stuff. It’s on the Mum Test. You have to know it or they don’t let you be a Mum.”

We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes and he was evidently pondering this new information.

“Oh….I get it!” he beamed.  “So if you don’t pass the test you have to be the Dad.”

“Exactly.” I replied with a big smile on my face!
