Flounce


Problems with the kitchen tiles necessitated the ones I had already purchased to be returned to the DIY store
A rant was the order of the day ( which was successfully sidestepped by the deadpan " returns clerk" ) and so even without the satisfaction of verbally bitchslapping some unfortunate bod, I left the store still ready for a fight.
At least the tiler has rescheduled his work for next Monday and has helped me buy some lovely ( but more expensive) replacement tiles for the job to be completed .
Hey fucking  ho
I sold the old fridge today and prepared the kitchen walls for painting so the day hasn't been too much of a bust and the news that Harry and Meghan is getting married was mildly good news on such a rainy afternoon.
Some people get their knickers in a twist when Royals get married .
What's the bloody point getting all arsey I say?, we should be just happy for people that have shared their good news with us all.

When the Prof and I got married one person that knew my betrothed fairly well on a social level refused to congratulate him on his forthcoming nuptials . It was a mealy mouthed so called Christian comment on gay marriage I am sure but when the snub came publically I and not the Prof was the one that wouldn't forgive.
I've not acknowledged the person ever since.
Gays never forget

  1. Meghan and Harry look very happy. I hope it works out well for them. I've read some articles about her and she seems to be a very intelligent, thoughtful person.

    The good Christian who wouldn't congratulate the Prof is like a "friend" of mine from high school who begrudgingly came to a baby shower my other friends gave for me. Yes, I got knocked up right out of school and "had" to get married, so when she was invited she questioned whether her coming meant she "condoned" what I did. Don't do me any favors, babe.

  4. I think we can all forgive but not forget. People who make nasty comments about gays should find something better to do in my opinion - they are quite often folk with a glaring flaw - visits to ladies of the night, extra marital affairs, all manner of things but as long as it is man and woman it is alright. My very dearest friends are gay, happy and now they have met totally fulfilled in their lives. I count you and the Prof as my friends and I am sure the same is true of you.

    1. If there were no gays I reckon half the world's theaters and concert houses would soon go down the pan. They are very artistic in these fields.

  5. I forget a lot of stuff but some I never will. As to forgiveness- ah well. Some things (to me) are unforgivable. Perhaps I just don't have the forgiveness gene.
    Can't wait to see your tile.

    One of my favourite quotes:

    “The stupid neither forgive nor forget; the naive forgive and forget; the wise forgive but do not forget.”

    1. I'm with Ms. Moon. Some of us with very active brains and memories are incapable of forgetting and as for the forgiving part, I simply cannot forgive certain actions by people that I believe know better. To know the good and do evil is to me unforgivable, like saying "oh, I'm sorry, I made a mistake" when you knew exactly what you were do and intended to. I think "forgiveness" comes too easily. That doesn't mean I want people tortured, but I don't want to give them the tacit approval of forgiveness for their intentional actions.

  7. I've always been one who rarely forgives, and at this point in life, forgetting comes just as naturally.

  8. Sorry your tiles didn't work out...most frustrating I'm sure.......hopefully you will find you like the new ones even more.

  9. Straights hold grudges, too. But! it's not a grudge when you won't acknowledge a jerk. It's saving breath and blood pressure.
    Oh, your prince and his lady are such a breath of fresh air.

  10. Tiles are a tricky business, better to do it right the first time, even if takes another week. The couple look happy, I hope they make one another happy, that is what love and marriage are really all about. I have become more willing to forgive, it takes the baggage out of my brain.

  13. I don't blame you never forgetting ..... some people are so pig ignorant aren't they ? It looks like Harry has found ' the one ' ... good luck to them both and I'm pleased for them .... I look forward to the nuptials .... I love a Royal wedding !!! The kitchen tiles will probably be nicer than the originals .... I always think that these things are meant to be. XXXX

  14. Every time I see Prince Harry see a little boy who lost his Mum at such an important time in his development. I hope he has found the love of his life!

  15. I think it is truly wonderful news it has made my day and am really happy for them both. For to be In Love is a gift in a real sense and the only thing that we can truly share with another person.
    Oh' and to hell with the begrudgers !

  16. It's good the tiles are sorted,was it a different colour lot? As for forgiving, that was very rude. I wouldn't be forgetting any time soon.
    Harry and Meghan look very happy and that is something we should wish for everyone. There is a Toronto connection so people here are pleased for them.

  17. Well, hey ho indeed. Hope you day goes a little better. The new tiles will look just lovely. I think anyone who finds true love these days is blessed. Take it and run.

  18. I love Harry and Meghan! Cant wait to see the wedding, and how she adjusts to royal life. <3

  19. It never ceases to amaze me that people think they have any say-so on other people's lives (assuming those "other people" are both consenting adults). I mean, you do what you want as long as you don't hurt anyone right? Like most of the others I can forgive but never forget! And as for Harry and Megan, let's hope they can blow some fresh air through the cobwebs of the royal family. Get rid of the in-breeding eh! They look like a lovely, genuine (a first?) couple. Anna

  25. Notice Harry's hand placement. Wasn't this the same placement he was roundly criticized for when he met First Lady of the US Melania Trump? It supposedly had some kind of a hidden "message"?
    Love the kitchen John.

  31. The last royal wedding, we took ourselves off to the Empire at Llandudno for two days to avoid all the nonsense. If they make it a public holiday this time (and there's no reason at all they should, Harry being only fifth in line to the throne) I think we might do the same again.

  33. forgiving does not mean forgetting. you can forgive someone a transgression but that doesn't mean you have to open yourself up to them again.

  34. I must say I don't understand why people get so excited over a royal marriage. Good luck to them and all that, but I'm no more interested than if Sharon down the road is marrying Kevin from round the corner.
