How Mama Rolls Humor Isla Says Life

Overheard In My Kitchen

29th May 2017

Isla:  Mum, you ran OVER my Bugles! (We have graduated from Mummy/Mumma to plain Mum when she’s pissed at me.) Me: I’m sorry, does that really um, grind your gears? Isla:  What? Me: Never mind. Sometime later… Isla:  I’m still hungry. Me:  I’ll fix you a plate.  You better eat what I give you.  (Ham, grapes that I thought were olives, and raspberries.) Me, again:  Isla, c’mere and get your deconstructed sandwich. Isla:  That’s not a sandwich. Me: Hence the…

Coffee & a Visit

28th May 2017

Hello!  How’s the week treated you?  I hope you’re all good, but even if you’re not, let’s put the world to rights. If we were were having coffee show you my favourite picture from this week.

One More Thing

24th May 2017

Last night was date night/Twin Peaks night.  Neil and I haven’t had one of those in a long time, so Isla spent last night at Dad and Anne’s, playing with their cats and probably having too much sugar. She left and my heart felt like Swiss cheese. She came back and I touched her face and said I love you.  She gave me her plastic Skye from Paw Patrol to keep until she gets back and out she runs demanding…

Coffee & Questions

21st May 2017

I’ve been blogging for a long time and you might have noticed I’ve been trying to be more consistent with it. Since I’ve come off my various hiatuses, I’m curious about why you’ve stuck with me, and other good stuff about you, my groovy readers. If you would be so groovy, and answer these questions, that would be swell. 1. How long have you been reading my rambles and how did you find me? 2. Are you disabled, a parent,…
