Nelly's GardenThe Piglet, The Health Visitor and CS Lewis (8.12.2005, 22:18 UTC)
When I had Zoë I was very young and silly. I knew hardly a thing about babies and yet I thought I knew everything. I was not looking forward to meeting our Health Visitor. Matty had told me that District Nurses and Health Visitors were terrible old harridans who would ‘ate the face of you for anything’ I was dreading her visit for I thought we would disagree about everything Now at that time my father kept a couple of sows and soon after I came home with the new baby one of th...

One of my colleagues, a young man in his early thirties, said, "Madonna scares me." "Why does she scare you?" He shuddered and said, "She just does." "But don't you think she looks really fit in a leotard? And great for her age like they all say?" "No. I wouldn't have wanted to see her 20 years ago in a leotard. I don't want to see her now in a leotard."Personally speaking I think she is a shite singer. Her voice is thin and dreary and I couldn't be bothered listening to her. But is she sca...

Hannah Swings Her New Haircut Originally uploaded by NellyMoser. Hannah has no time for blogging. I tell her to 'make time!' but you know what kids are like - never listen to a word of advice their mothers give them. This post is for Jazzthefunk. Hannah says this isn't her favourite picture. Something about not liking her nose. But I like the picture and I like her nose.

"Presently, Ormo sell the widest range of bread and morning goods in Northern Ireland where it is famous for traditional Irish breads and unique recipes for soda and potato farls, barmbrack and wheaten bread."Yesterday evening I went to the local supermarket and bought a packet of sliced wheaten bread.

I sense that Ed doesn’t like Bono much. So I thought I’d do a “Bono is…” search on Google to see what came up and if there was anything that Mr Hillan might find pleasing. I think that he’d like the first one best and that he’d like number 7 better if the letter R in flattered was replaced by the letter N. And if the Rolling Stones were actual big boulders hurtling down a steep hill towards Mr Bono.1. Bono Is Dead2. Bono is regarded by many to be the lea...

Nelly's GardenSister Benedicta (4.12.2005, 17:54 UTC)
For most of his life my father had two jobs. He was a HGV lorry driver and a farmer. There was a time just a few years after he bought the farm when things did not go well for him. He had replaced his old faithful ERF truck with a more modern Seddon-Atkinson lorry. And this lorry gave him a lot of problems. He was sold a pup. And because he was self-employed he earned no money on the days that the lorry was broken down. That would have been bad enough but then there was also a run of bad luck o...

Calm down Ursa Minor, you know you're always on a diet and my new friends are gourmets unlike you lot in Spide City who think the local take-out places are dee-lish-us and that McDonalds is manna from heaven. So I got all the ingredients to make the Another Place gourmets my yummy scones. Except I didn't get buttermilk. Because I had buttermilk. But I hadn't buttermilk. Because Bert had drank it all ...

Hannah and I were watching this tribute programe tonight on George Best. Being in her early 20s and totally uninterested in football Hannah only knew George Best as a famous alcoholic and Calum's dad. Sure he has been famous for his drinking for a lot longer now than he was famous for football. But being just a bit younger than George I can well remember his glory days and how proud we Norn Ironers were to have the Best (in every sense) footballer hail from our part of the world. George, ...

His starting point was our old abode. We are pretty worried and have been down there at regular intervals throughout the evening. We can only assume that he is lost. He's a bit thick and needs the intelligent collie to show him how to get home. Fingers crossed he makes it back tonight. Last time he went missing...

The Wee In His Swimmers Originally uploaded by NellyMoser. Some men are strange. I got to thinking that as I watched the piece on last night's news about the Royal Marines 'at play'. The psychologist/apologist explained it all away by saying that these extremely masculine men, highly trained and battle-hardened, need some kind of an emotional outlet when they return from the front line. And maybe they do. But it got me remembering a crowd we occasionally socialised with around 20 year...

For about three weeks now I have been working both in Spide City and in Another Place. Today I was in Another Place. I enjoy working there. It's similar work but there are different things about it that I like. It's a bigger place which means there are more staff so I'm getting to know different people and having cover for breaks so that I can Go Out Walking at lunchtime.Today during a team meeting the fire alarm went off. And there was smoke. So the fire service were called. Because I'm not...

Well if you'd had the news I got from the dentist this afternoon you'd want comforting too. Tonight I made a chicken pie, pineapple & coconut scones, cheese scones and a cherry tart. I have already walked close to five miles today so a bit of extra eating won't hurt. Sure I might as well. While I still have teeth.

You’re so lucky Nelly. Bert’s that easy-going. He never gets in a fluster about anything.I’ve heard this from envious women hundreds of times. Usually I’d agree with them. Who wants to live with a control freak or someone who is always getting stressed out?Bert takes his easy-going nature from his late father. He rarely let anything ruffle him too much. This was a very necessary character trait that stood Johnny in good stead in his dealings with Pearlie whose very favour...

Bored with my Flickr badge. So I decided to change it to a randomised one. Which means that everytime you look at my blog you will see three random photographs instead of the five most recently posted to Flickr. But the thing is last July I was in Spide City during the Twelfth of July parades and I took and then posted quite a lot of parade pictures to Flickr. Ironically of course. And the first couple of times I checked those pictures were featured. I'd hate for anyone to think that I am a...

I’m going to make a rare recommendation here because I think El Capitan has a pretty good blog.

Day off today. I wasn't looking forward to it because it was just one and one does not feel like enough. And I had a lot to do. But I have had a good day and this is why. Got up early and fought my way through two sets of school traffic to take Hannah to work. Did not get road rage even once although I did note that there were several idiots who were out and about in thick freezing fog with nary a light to be seen. Cretins.

The title sets the tone for the post. One of the good things about working shifts is that, like students, one can take to the drink on the less obvious days. Straight after work I was up at the Moat Bar's off-licence where I purchased one bottle of red wine and one bottle of gin. Reason? Hannah's boyf was making supper and I didn't have a clue what kind of a fist he would make of it so I thought to myself, 'Hey! At least if he's a crap cook and the meal is inedible I'll still be smiling.' And g...

You may already be aware that Mr Gerry Anderson, the much-loved Radio Ulster presenter, is a former Social Worker. Last week on his show I heard him describe some of his former colleagues as ‘not of this world.’ The best example he cited was of the just graduated Social Worker who asked a Belfast mother if her son ‘accessed his external environment’ only to be met with total and utter bafflement from the mother until Gerry translated this as, ‘Does he go out much?
