Today something rather different! I have made my first Video for BlogLand. Hope you enjoy it.
Well, I hope you enjoyed that! I expect a number of you knew how to do this already.
With all these spinsters and batchelors it is a wonder the whole family did not die out on that side of the clan. Considering all those unmarried brothers and sisters, some already departed before this story, it is fortunate that my grandfather produced a son, my father. From then my father was the last of the clan but he married and Maggie arrived first, then me. I was then the last in line but married and had a daughter and a son, who is currently the last in line. Go for it, son - but get things in the right order first LOL.
My elderly relations were, as I said, rather strange. They had a good sense of humour, except my grandfather, who was rather grumpy. I wonder where I get mine? I suppose Auntie Madge was the liveliest out of a rather dreary bunch but unfortunately they were all extremely stingy - I cannot recall being given a penny piece. I remember one particular occasion when my parents were very amused when their purses were not opened yet again - had they done so I suppose a plentiful supply of moths might have flown everywhere. This example of the worst case of 'stingyism', or should I say stinginess, I have ever known was the occasion of a relative's silver wedding anniversary. It is usual and fitting to send a present made from silver for a Silver Wedding Anniversary - not so with my elderly relatives! Their solution was to send a jar of Silver Shred marmalade LOL. I am not sure how the present was received or whether they ever spoke to my elderly relatives again..
