3 quotes, 3 day challenge…with a twist – day 3

It's Day 3 of the 3 quotes, 3 day challenge which Miriam at Out an' About nominated me to join. I did tell her that I would put my own twist on the challenge and she was fine with that. It's been fun! So as you may know already I decided that instead of actual quotes I would use …

3 quotes, 3 day challenge…with a twist – day 2

I was worried after my previous silly season post that I might have been thought to be turning into a grumpy old woman but I think this proves I'm definitely not there yet...unless …

It’s not called the ‘silly season’ for nothing!

It's now officially the silly season!  The person who coined this phrase was spot on (apparently it was first noted in 1861).  Ay my first event for the season, I looked around at all these normal, sensible people suddenly transformed by wearing silly hats, telling silly jokes from their bonbons and playing with silly plastic …
