some of Sylvia's brownies off Corrie will do nicely thank you - I find the older I get that no longer do I suffer fools gladly - people used to walk all over me - [enough about my cow of a mother in law] but now I fight back

I went out with a very cheerful 'rise and shine' type once, but I was young then and in love lol, if I was still with him and he was like that now I would probably whack him :-D

edit OOOH Coffee cake Eeyore! Good idea!

A friend rang me last night specifically to tell me about his piles.

Oh, I was pleased to be told the detail!

I wouldn't mind but I am not even sympathetic.

I have never thought to try being nice, but I do come from a long line of cantankerous old gits.

Wot Sharon said :-D

I also leave my lights on a timer when I am away, and also the radio is on a timer. My neighbours do the same. Nobody has complained (or probably even noticed.).

Did they expect you to form a posse and go round to switch the light off rose :-D

Rambling Rose Report 4 Apr 2013 11:44

Ann I am not going up to the Wirral just to break in and turn off that light lol :-D nor to tell the sun to come up later ( wakes the person too early) or go down sooner ( being light in the evening means she can't concentrate on tv.). Poor woman I do try to be sympathetic but sometimes my pot of soothing words has run dry lol.

Just smile and rise above it Rose. Or snap and be miserable whichever takes your fancy.

The last time I left the radio on for company for the dog not as a deterrent, he p**d on it and blew the fuse.

Rambling Rose Report 4 Apr 2013 11:54

lol Vera, I wonder if a song had come on that your dog didn't like :-D my friend's dog used to 'sing' when certain songs came on the radio, she too left it on while she went out, as company for the dog .


AnninGlos Report 4 Apr 2013 11:55

Aah, is it a security light? Probably the wind has affected it if so, so tell the wind to drop!!!

Rambling Rose

Rambling Rose Report 4 Apr 2013 11:58

No it's just the back bedroom light Ann, so not going to be a very bright one. My neighbour has a motion sensor one outside which comes on when the trees at the back are blowing in the wind...but it doesn't bother me.

Eeyore, trust me the parents won't be any more happier about the kids crying than you. Sleep deprivation is a form of torture and only in parenthood does it seem to be part of the job :-(

Rose, I'm with Vera. If you do decide to use the 'snap' route remember that if she does take offense at least you'll get a bit of peace and quiet for a while :-D
