This was brought to you for LindaGHill‘s One Liner Wednesday.
Rules and Pingback Here
Well it’s not Wednesday and it’s not one line but here goes anyway.
Having asked hubby to buy some creme fresh and double cream I went to the fridge to check the dates. Then I spotted some steak. “Oh! I said, you have bought some steak” ” you told me to” he replied. I gave this some thought and replied, “can you get cream and creme fresh, and make sure they have *decent dates” Hubby laughed I thought you said get some decent steak”. ???
Well the dates on the cream and creme fresh are good, and they steak looks good too.
We are both fluent but in different languages…….
* decent dates : shelf life on the the goods.
Female, wife, full time mother and Grandmother. I am not as happy go lucky as I used to be but I am still bubbling along on simmer! I have three handsome sons all grown and flown.The youngest married with a beautiful wife and two sons of his own. Eleven years ago I was working, running a home, driving and socializing then bang in a split second all that was gone. I had an accident at home. I broke my back, not for the first time, I had broken it 10 years previously as well. Unfortunately this time I had broken it really badly and it was truly messed up so I had to have two operations. I was told before each operation that the outcome could mean I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. Still as some guy once wrote "I am still standing " yes "better than I ever was " not quite but with the help of a walking stick and as long as I do not stand or sit in one position for too long, I am still standing! Update I no longer use the walking stick . I had lots of friends before the accident but when things like this happen, you loose most of them. Their lives move on and mine stood still and so they left me behind ...I know that is just the way life is but it hurt and always will. Then I looked around and saw those who were still there for me, these friends are the roses in my garden they need to be tended well. They are the diamonds in the dust, I will of been married 50yrs plus this year . Pain and boredom are my enemies now, I have to find different ways to approach life, use my pain befriend it almost...yer right , well that is what they tell me at the pain clinic ROFLMAO ...... if only I could! I have found an outlet for my fears, frustrations and night terrors . I have started writing poetry if that name can be applied to my writing. I hope I do not come over as a moaning winger. I hope I am past all that. I also hope that you might see how the poetry is moving from very dark through the grey and
hopefully in to light ??
I need to update this a little here. I have worked very hard over the years since my accident, I go to the gym regularly, I have a Pilates class and a core class once a week . The guys at the gym and my Pilates teacher cajoled, teased, bullied and encouraged me to abandon my walking stick! :) My back is no longer straight it is C shaped because of the injury and I have lost two and a half inches in height but my Pilates and Core teachers have helped me to stand up as straight and as strongly as possible. Pain and depression are still hanging on my arm but I have weapons to use against them and if I say so myself I cope well.
I have made lots of new friends, real diamonds. I am also very grateful for all the support and help I have encountered here on Wordpress. Hugs and welcome to everyone who visits.

Hahaha! Good to know that sometimes bad communication can get you a nice steak! 😀 Thanks for the laugh, my friend. ❤
Lol I am glad it made you smile 💜
At least you didn’t get a load of dried fruit 🙂
Yes it could of been dates!!💜
At Christmas, okay, but not in July!
Almost August 💜🌹
Don’t. Summer almost over.
We finally have rain 💜
We have a storm coming up. On the night of the eclipse…
Yes I guess none of us will see it because of cloud !
Just got a look at it. The cloud is thickening so that’s probably going to be all we get. It was…reddish.
Absolutely no sign of it here, it unbelievable all the past weeks of clear night skies and ten tonight, the only night we would of seen the blood moon, it’s cloudy.💜🙃😱
I know! What’s the point of it if half the world can’t see it?
Very irritating!! 💜
Not very well thought out if you ask me.
It’s not fair God/ Nature had plenty of time to plan the event you think that they could of organised clear skies for the whole world!!😒
You would, wouldn’t you?
Dates and steaks sound reasonable to me. 🙂 I catch myself, others do too, misinterpreting verbal conversation at times. Maybe that’s why I like writing more today – so I can read back what I said or re-read what I read. 🙂
Yes it is a lot easier to sick to the written word. I did have a laugh today though 🌹
Made me smile – glad you got what you wanted, and more! Enjoy your surprise steaks. 😊❤️
Yes we are looking forward to those . They look good don’t they🌹
They do! Makes me hungry. 😋❤️
Enjoy! Hope you have a good night, Willow. 💕
I am off to bed in a minute it’s been a long day!💜
Pleasant dreams! 💓
Thank you and God bless you. 💜💜
God bless you too, Willow. ❤️
