Friday Smiles

Hi Everyone


I hope you are all well and have had a good smiley week.

I'm thinking that many of you will have seen many little ones stepping off into the unknown this week as they started there first day at school. For me it was my little great-granddaughter, Rhian, not yet five years old, starting primary school on Tuesday this week.

Rhian looked very smart and immensely proud in her new uniform. She settled in very quickly and didn't look at all bothered that her mum would be leaving her there for part of the day. Turned out she thoroughly enjoyed the experience ... it was her mum who had a little moment seeing her wee girl looking so grown up.

Now, here's my joke for the week

The Sensitive Man

The room was full of pregnant women with their partners. The class was in full swing. The instructor was teaching the women how to breathe properly and was telling the men how to give the necessary assurance to their partners at this stage of the pregnancy.

She said, "Ladies, remember that exercise is good for you. Walking is especially beneficial. It strengthens the pelvic muscles and will make delivery that much easier. Just take several stops and stay on a soft surface like grass or a path."

She looked at the men in the room, "And Gentlemen, remember you're in this together. It wouldn't hurt you to go walking with her."

The room suddenly got very quiet as the men absorbed this information. Then a man at the back of the room slowly raised his hand.

"Yes? asked the Instructor.

I was just wondering if it would be all right if she carries a golf bag while we walk?

That's my smiles for the week. If you want to share something that made you smile then do pop along to Annie's at A Stitch In Time and join in the fun. 

Rightio, I'd better get a scoot on ... the EM is 'patiently' waiting for me so that we can get on the road. As we are away for the weekend, hope it's okay but it won't be possible for me to check out the smiley links until we return on Sunday, or maybe even Monday, depending on how tired I am when we get back.

Have a great weekend.

First day of school is such a big step for the little ones isn´t it. She may not be quite so keen when she realises she has to do it every day! My great-grandson isn´t four until the end of next week, but by just two days, he comes into the group who start full day school in September! Some of the class will be a full year older than him.
I hope you have a lovely weekend away, and take a few days to recover in! Kate x

Rhian looks so lovely in her new uniform and so happy too. Love your chuckle!
Hope you enjoy the show despite the weather. We went yesterday for late entry (3pm), half price and had such a good time. Luckily we missed the rain and managed to nab a parking space right next to the show so just as we were leaving it rained heavily and we just had to nip over the road. There were lots of changes and additions to last year's show and it was excellent. The arena events were great.
