Most of you know that our last holiday was a cruise. Every day the Captain had his thought of the day. Anyone want to join in?
Did you know that in Australia it is illegal to walk around as batman.
When I was at college, we told a friend that we were doing fancy dress in the pub. He soon worked out that he had been wound up when he arrived in his batman costume. It was funny enough listening to him explain to others how we had told we would too, but to add insult to injury, the car driver locked the car door, and drove away slowly so he had to run after us, calling to us to let him in. I can't deny it was hilarious seeing batman running after the car, and the shocking language as his temper slipped.
I like " You make your life with the ingredients to hand" . It's a quote from a Stan Barstow book.
Recently I was going through my mums stuff I came across a small box. It has WAR AND VICTORY stamped on the front and a name GNR J MARTIN. That was my grandad.
Inside is a very old piece of paper ripped from a magazine. It's a quote from Patience Strong.
Be content with half the loaf if you don't get the whole. If through force of circumstances that you can't control-you find you cannot have the things you wanted most of all, take what life is offering- and even if they're small- take your blessings as they come. Don't moan and pipe your eye wishing for the things you missed, the things that passed you by. Getting all you've prayed for doesn't always bring content- so learn to take with gratitude what Providence has sent. Don't reject a portion if you cannot have the lot. Be content with half the loaf , enjoying what you've got.
It's really faded and dog eared. She must have had this all her life.
