How Do You Rinse A Shower?

I like to help around the house, but I find cleaning the shower perplexing.

How do you rinse it without getting soaking wet?

Sometimes I think it would be best to take off all my clothes to do it!

Ask Monkey a Question

Monkey, what is your favourite vegetable?
Monkey with cauliflower
Without hesitation, it’s got to be cauliflower! I love it with my Sunday Roast in a medley of other vegetables - carrot, peas and broccoli. I also love cauliflower cheese which is a quick and easy for my tea or supper. It can be bland in colour so you have to serve it with other colourful foods.
If you asked me what my least favourite vegetable was, I would have to say broad beans, they make me heave!

Testing, Testing, 1,2,3 …………

Look what I found in the kitchen drawer.  It’s a mini tape recorder.
No one wanted it, so I’ve had it.

I am going to sing into it to see if I am any good for X Factor and if I have any good ideas but don’t have a pen and paper with me, I can just say “ Don’t forget to pop into Tesco because Rice Crispies are two for one” – BRILLIANT!
I think the French call it an Aide-Memoire.

What's In My Pocket Thursday

Look what I’ve got in my pocket today .............

Magic Fish 1

It’s a magical fish that tells your fortune, isn’t it brilliant?

Magic Fish2

You put it in the palm of your hand and it moves mysteriously. How it moves, means different things.

When I tried it, it curled up into a tiny little ball at first ………. which means I am VERY passionate but by the time I had this photo taken it had decided to straighten out which means I'm "a dead 'un"

Eh? Can You Repeat That Please ….

Picture 156
I like to keep my ears squeaky clean.
Picture 158
I am prone to a waxy build up which means sometimes I don’t hear things properly and then get things mixed up ………………….

Once, I got very excited when I thought someone said “Let’s have a day at the sea”, but what they really said was “Make us a cup of tea”.

Happy Haggis Day

25th January is Haggis Day and who am I not to celebrate?
Now, I love my food as you all know, but I have to admit that I don’t find this particular dish very appealing…………
Monkey Haggis
BUT, my Great Gran would say “ Don’t say you don’t like it, ‘till you’ve tried it!”,  so I will try some, but don’t think I can eat a whole one.
So, bring on the neeps and tatties ….

This was so much fun.  There were no bikes in the bike shed so I went and played for ages until the caretaker came over and said I should be careful, this put me off a bit …. next time I will wear my helmet.

Health and Safety and all that.

Hanging on the Telephone!

Monkey on Phone Phone 2
I am not very keen on the music they play when you are waiting in a queue on the phone.
Phone 3 phone 4
And it’s very embarrassing when you start humming or la la-ing to the tune to alleviate the boredom and someone suddenly answers your call while you are in full swing.
phone 5
Sometimes when the machine says that the call may be recorded for training purposes I ask if I am actually being recorded, and then use posh voice or ask if they can send me a copy of my call!

I’ve Got Green Fingers.

Amarylis 2 Amarylis 1
The ladies in the office were given an amaryllis for Christmas. They have called it Richard. It’s brilliant, it grows everyday!
Amarylis 3 Amarylis 6
I have been put in charge of measuring it, and seeing how much it shoots up each day.  I might make a graph.
Amarylis 4
The PE lady bought her amaryllis over to the office after seeing Richard, because it hasn’t done anything yet. I am talking to it and patting it to make it feel loved ….. I have called it William.

What’s In My Pocket Thursday

Wind up torch
I love torches.  I had this one for Christmas off one of my mates.
It’s a clockwork windy up one and is very handy to have on my keyring when I am looking at bus timetables in the dark.

It’s Me!

Lucy bought herself a new hat because her ears were getting cold with all this snowy weather.

She let me try it on, but it was far too big!

But it is so cute.
I would like one  too if they did my size.

Looking at Old Scrapbooks

I love looking through old photos and scrapbooks.
Remembering times like when Lucy used to help her dad mix his groundbait ready for when he went fishing.

And when she liked doing the washing up!

Busy Doing Nothing

Sometimes it’s nice to look out of the window and watch the world go by.
George the Banga Bus Driver stops at the bus stop by our house on the hour, every hour, except at 2 o’clock, when he has his lunch hour. We waved to him every time he went past and he waved back.

Jelly Fish Alert

No, I haven’t been to an aquarium and I haven't got any new pets ....…

This wonderous object is a mood lamp.

It changes colours.

And the jelly fish move slowly round.
I can’t take my eyes off it.

But Lucy doesn’t like it at all, she says it's creepy and gives her goosebumps!
