Lockdown Madness – from Bob & Frances D

Just be careful because people are going crazy from being in lock down!

Actually I’ve just been talking about this with the microwave and toaster while drinking coffee and we all agreed that things are getting bad. I didn’t mention anything to the washing machine as she puts a different spin on everything. Certainly not to the fridge as he is acting cold and distant. In the end the iron straightened me out as she said everything will be fine, no situation is too pressing. The vacuum was very unsympathetic… told me to just suck it up, but the fan was more optimistic and hoped it would all soon blow over! The toilet looked a bit flushed when I asked its opinion and didn’t say anything but the door knob told me to get a grip.? The front door said I was unhinged and so the curtains told me to ……..yes, you guessed it ?…..pull myself together !!!

Thanks, Bob & Frances – your sense of humour is still very much intact!

Has any one popped over to the Cambridge Park Facebook page today?  Great video of the Norman & Jean garden bowls challenge!

Check your diary.  If you haven’t got anything scheduled, why not phone a friend?  It’ll make you feel better as well as them!  You can talk about the weather too.

    Excellent sense of humour and a ray of sunshine in amongst my jigsaw puzzle.
    Can’t believe that I am able to sit still for that long!
    Now I know retirement is a long way off!!
    Looking forward to the exercise video with Dawn !
    A weekly occurrence with Dawn putting her acting and dressing up skills to the test.
    Norman and Jean’s video… The Waverley Challenge! What a hoot!
    Let’s keep smiling and making each other laugh in what are difficult time!
    Question of the day…. How can I put one tomato seed in a pot and end up with four?
    I am inundated with tomatoes and chilliest!!
    Stay safe, this will soon be a dream!

      You and jigsaw in one sentence doesn’t seem quite right!
      Lots of members are doing their bit to keep us sane and yet weirdly insane at the same time! Shirley O is doing pilates and yoga online and yes, Norman & Jean’s Waverley Challenge video was brilliant! Hope to get some more stories too of everyone’s more unusual lockdowns!
      No idea on the tomato seed challenge – ask Stella S.

      BTW – What acting and dressing up skills? Did you tell me about this?!

        He said.. Is this for children?
        I said yes but post Sooty and Sweep and possibly pre. Magpie?
        I know that I will be on the floor laughing with your first performance….
        You usually rise to the occasion? Great effort Dawn!
