Amusing things......

Just thought I'd share this thought with you all.

Dj always manages to make me smile, sometimes it's not intentional at all but it just happens that way.

The other day we were looking through some old photographs because he needed to take one of himself (as a baby or toddler) into school for a project he's currently doing 'Growth and Change' - which is the modern version of Year 6 Sex Education.

So we're browsing through lots of old photographs and he finds one of my nan (mum's mum - Edna Lea) and asks what did she die of mummy?
I told him she had breast cancer and unfortunately because it was so long ago they didn't really have so many options for treating her as they maybe would have done nowadays.

He then asked 'How old was she when she died?'....I told him she was 44 years old and he replied 'Blimey, you've had a long life compared to her then eh'....:-)))) LOL

One day I shall write a book and put all his little one-liners and amusing thoughts down in one place

Another one that comes to mind was recently when he came into the kitchen looking deep in thought and said
'It's a terrible world we live in isn't it? Some people are prepared to kill other people for stupid reasons...it was on the news that they are looking for a man who is killing people over breakfast stuff'....???
I asked him what he meant, what had he heard and he said
'It's TRUE mummy, they are looking for someone who is killing people over breakfast cereals'......
I laughed and said 'I think you'll find they're looking for a serial killer?'....

Him - big dramatic SIGH........'YES, well that's exactly what I said isn't it'

Again LOL.


  1. Nice that you can appreciate humour...things must be looking up.(a bit) He does sound great, that innocence is lovely and one to be treasured. :-)


  2. LOL! LOl! He is gr8! Remember when you both some home from day out in London and he told Rab that "mummy has been talking to terrorists" and Rab looked concerned and when you denied it he said "yes you did, they asked you for directions" and you realised he meant tourists! LOL! x

  3. Sarah - Yes, I remember that 'the purple terrorist' was the way he described her...:-))

    Tony - Yes, am definitely on the up and up now. Just need to keep the pain under control and things will get better.

    I shall post a 'Dj thought of the day' whenever he comes out with one of his 'thoughts' - if there's nothing else to put a smile on my face, at least that might work :-)
