In Asda today we were laughing about some of the funny things that has happened at work.
So I thought I would tell you about one in particular that we found very funny, I hope you do to.

A group of us was chatting among ourselves while it was quiet in the store, when an elderly gentleman come up to us and asked if we knew where the bog roll was.
One of the new young lads, who was very eager to please, turned and with a big grin on his face and said:
"Yes sir, isle 25."

The elderly gentleman nodded and thanked us as he turned and walked towards the isle.
Time went on and when I was walking towards the door to go for my break I noticed the elderly gentleman walking around isle 25 looking a little confused.
"Can I help you?" I asked. "You were asking for the toilet roll wasn't you?
The gentleman looked a little embarrased and turned to me and said in a very quiet voice.
"well, no". He said. "I actually asked for Bovril."

Well, after the lovely holiday and beautiful weather The One Writing The Message Is Smiling it was back to work on Monday.....with our new uniforms.

We have plain black trousers and a bright green blouse. Bright Green Bright Green
The trousers believe it or not are hipsters, because that is the fashion, but on the women our our ages??!!

The blouse sizes are small , medium or large.
Well, they tend to come small anyway so most of us ordered the larger size, it's best to have a bigger size because when you are packing bags etc you are always bending and stretching.

Well are they larger or what!!! They are huge. Short sleeves or long sleeves ??? The long sleeve ones are too long
which means they get tangled up with whatever you are doing.
The short sleeves ones are too short. Regardless of what size you have.

Then because they are so big around the tummy you feel like a great big balloon.

They are the worst ever. We hate them.

Who designs these bloody uniforms???????

You feel like a sack of sh*t tied in the middle.

I don't know about Twinning doing raids but I reckon we should all raid Asda House.

We will strip them of their nice fancy suits and put them in our black trousers and green blouses and parade them around outside in front of everybody.

I bet they would feel such fools and look twats like we do.

Marc Bolan.

Today is the 30th anniversary of the death of Marc Bolan.

I can not believe it is that long ago, it sems like yesterday when he was performing on the stage. He was very flamboyant, colourful, and his music was fantastic.
I still have his first two L.P.s he made and I still play them.

He is surely missed and there will never be another Marc.

He is an icon.

God bless you Marc.

God bless you Luciano, you can sing with the angels now.

Yes, thankyou, we had a lovely holiday. Thumbs Up

We went to Torquay for a fortnight and the weather was beautiful. So hot.
We went everywhere from Torquay to Teignmouth, Exeter, Plymouth, Bodmin and Dartmoor.

We went through all the little villages and we spent hours on the Dartmoor Moors and Bodmin Moors.

While we were in Dartmoor, well, we had to go to the prison in Princetown didn't we?
Geoff begged them to take me but to no avail.
So I just took a picture of the front door.
Just in case, then I would know where I am if I ever have to go there again.

The hotel where we stayed "The Rainbow" was like fawlty towers.
We had no clean towels for four days because we weren't told to put the dirty ones in the bottom of the shower so then they would know we needed clean ones. Only found that out when another guest heard us complaining about the dirty towels. We should have been told but no-one did.

The shower was so small geoff couldn't even get in it. There was black mould growing in it, and although we told them nothing was done about it.
It was what I call those "Closed in" showers where you pull the doors around you. Well, I suffer with claustrophobia so that was out of the question, I showered with the doors open.

The toilet seat broke (well geoff was using it and he is 23 stone)
I don't think it was actually cleaned anyway, we could never smell bleach.

We were in the room when the cleaner came to clean the room (A young man) and I asked him how long he would be and he said: "oh, about ten minutes."
That says it all. How we laughed.

The beds one double, one single, was like something out of Dartmoor prison anyway, hard and lumpy.

The food was good but the same every day. Tomato soup was on the menu every night.

But apart from that a good holiday it was too.

Will start blogging again soon.

Stacks of washing and ironing to do.


P.S. If you ever get a chance to see Chris Chaplin, a comedian, then please do. He is fantasticly funny and a good singer...I brought his c.d. and can't stop playing it.
We saw him twice at the hotel.
Love to see him again.
