K Is For ‘Kidology’

Leather Vancouver

The latest in my A to Z of The Laughing Housewife sees a celebration: on June 30th it will be my third blogaversary!  The third anniversary has ancient (leather) and modern (glass/crystal) symbols; to make it easy for everyone, if you send me a set of glasses in leather holders, like those plastic cups at sports games that keep drinks hot or cold*, I’ll be happy.


Being a fervent monarchist (yes, I would curtsey to the Queen) and because it’s a jubilee year, I decided to celebrate my blogaversary (leather slippers à la Cinderella will do) by copying QEII: four days off and a trip down memory lane.  There will be no original posts from tomorrow, for four days; just re-posts of my four favourite posts over the last three years*.

*The four posts I can remember writing.

Happy Blogaversary to me!
I get four days blog-free!
I’ll cheat all my readers
And they’ll all leave me…oh…


A quiz for you: guess which part of this post is a bluff or deception.


This is for you, Big Al:

kidology [kɪˈdɒlədʒɪ]


Brit informal the art or practice of bluffing or deception

[from kid2 + ology]

I’ll settle for a leather glasses case, if you’re poor.

    Happy blogaversary!! That picture is quite an eyeful. Put your feet up and enjoy! Maybe you’ll get a foot massage from the Hub to commemorate your three years of bringing joy to all.

    The kidding part? It isn’t really the Queen’s jubilee.

    Does this means my Maltesers won’t be posted? (Yes the weather is fine here in the centre of the universe)

    Would you settle for a one-owner, imitation leather, slightly used (beat-up) glasses case I bought in England about 12 years ago?

    Happy belated blogoversary! If I’d have realized sooner I’d have photoshopped you a Malteser’s cake.


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
