things come in threes

Dropped my keys in a bucket of dirty water, walked into a rake and got hit in the face ... what's going to happen next?


Last week I found a jacket and some tops for April in a bag of clothes at Zac's. She was delighted and said, 'Better to be born lucky than rich.'


Lucky? April: abandoned as a baby, abused in the care home, beaten up by men, had three children die. Lucky? That's April. She's always - nearly always unless someone has really really annoyed her - smiling and cheerful, upbeat - when her place in rehab was given to another she said, 'They must be in a worse state so they need it more' - and positive about the future.


Some of us could learn a lot from her.

I wish I could have a good attitude all the time. I do sometimes, but I'm just too much of a moody bastard to ever keep it going...

God has blessed her in His own special way and watches over her now.

O/T Liz but your font is coming out very small - seems to have changed and I'm having trouble reading it now.

How did you manage to get hit in the face? April must be a wonderful person.

Yeah I was going to say something about life's most bastardly aspects coming in 3s but maybe you just forgot the 1st one of the 3 and didn't notice it ... I trust you made it through Friday 13th unscathed..??!?

Me too, gledwood.

He does, leslie.

I don't know what i can do about that, James, as I haven't changed anything.

Stood on the prongs of the rake and it flipped up, whack, welshcakes!

I didn't even notice it was Friday 13th, gledwood!
