Dumb Mum & Funny Boys

7 Sep

Two daft moments from yesterday

A Serious Talk


I woke up at three in the morning last night and saw the hall lamp was on which meant that Spud was still out and hadn’t let me know he’d be back so late.

My text: Where are you?!!

Spud’s reply: In Tory Boy’s room.



From lookimadethat.com

Tory Boy was asking me about Holy Communion and I told him about the time I influenced a vicar.

She always used a piece of bread from her latest open loaf at home for the communion bread and, discussing it one day, I mentioned that I loved it when she used the occasional bun because of the symbolism of its wholeness/completeness/the actual breaking of bread, and so on.  She didn’t say anything but she must have liked the idea because after that, she always used a bun at communion.

Tory Boy: So what you’re saying is, your vicar thought the bun was the best thing since sliced bread?

    Jock always tells people that the bun is the lowest form of wheat.

    The apples fell right at the base of the tree; the boys have the wit and cleverness of both parents in spades. 😀

    It’s comforting to know that Tilly Bud “groaners” will live on long after she is gone.

    That boy will definitely be a John McCain when he gets into politics.

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.
