Mr SW had to take the car in for a service. He opened the back door then paused, looked at me and asked "Do I need to use the loo first?"

This was the other day. On my way to work, there is a house having a huge extension built. There are always vans parked on the pavement outside despite the big drive being empty. The other day, a huge wagon pulled up but parked properly on the road. I thanked the driver for not going on to the pavement and said in a loud voice that it made it so difficult for some people. He agreed. Every day since then, I giggle to myself as the vans now always park in the drive. Either they heard what I said or the wagon driver said something to them.

My friend's nearly four-year-old niece had to be collected early from nursery due to diarrhoea. In trying to explain what was wrong she said she had 'tummy sneezes'. DD

Back from spending time with my grandchildren. Lily(2) gave me a high five. When I mentioned that I had a shower brush after Luke (6 1/2) spotted some in a shop he asked if I had "winkles on my back?"

Got to share these

Me to yr 3 group
"How many letters are there in the alphabet?"

Pupil

"A lot"

Doing a reading test with a pupil.

The sentence he read, correctly was

Dedicated runners have to train regularly to achieve international success.

I asked "Why do these athletes train so much?"

Answer " They don't like running so they catch the train."

Ah Slosh, the mysteries of the alphabet still abound, yes? Many of my pupils referred to 'valves' and 'continents' and probably still do.

What made me smile today is that I have, finally, ordered a new dishwasher. It's a better model than the one I originally wanted and works out (thanks to a useful chum who can supply and fit) as a better deal. Come Thursday evening it will be done . . . bliss. DD

Enjoy your new dishwasher. I hope you have a ceremony planned for it's first use.

Mr SW, trying and failing to use our son's microwave finally and uncharacteristically decided he'd have to ask for help.

Son arrived, took in the situation at a glance and said, with just a hint of a smile, "Right. You put this (He waved the plug) into here (the socket) and then you press this switch down."

Email from dil in LA. Our grandson;s baseball was cancelled as temperature had sunk to 11c.

Sounds balmy (and barmy) to me.

Not today, but the first day we managed to get out after all the wealth of snow that had fallen.

On the village green about 20 children, of various ages, were making a superb igloo supervised by three or four adults.

It was so cheering and a small bit of it is still there.

Playing Pool today with our family on our holiday campsite in Norfolk to keep indoors from the pouring rain our 10 year old made us smile. There was also a dart board. Her Mum (my daughter) asked her if she could play darts. Her reply was "Yes I can. I have played with the Scouts. You don't know everything about me even though you are my Mum!"
So true!

U.S.A. roadsigns - the ones actually written on the road - are written, logically, as one approaches them rather then as one naturally reads. So., where ours might say:
STOP
AHEAD
here they say
AHEAD
STOP.

Every year we snigger when we read what, in the UK would be
SPEED
HUMP.
