Its is such a beautiful day and we decided to pop out for breakfast first thing, do some shopping and then have coffee at our GC. Nothing unusual in that I can hear you all thinking!! Except……… when sitting down for coffee I suddenly realised that I had my jumper on inside out!!!!! Please save me from all this, the long label was poking out and I thought my sleeves felt strange, is this the start of me being forgetful? Well I was in stiches, OH was queuing for coffee and I was sitting at a nice table for two having apoplexy! Well when OH arrived at our table and I told him, he was in stiches too, we do laugh a lot anyway but this was to us hilarious. Poor old folk that we are!
Well we beat a hasty retreat and purchased some nice plants which I needed as therapy for my faux pas! Lol


Enjoy this beautiful day.

the daffodil is lovely but i really wanted to see the jumper on inside out!!!

what a good thing you have a sense of humour!!!

15 Mar, 2012

 

You're not alone in this, GM. I have these two pairs of shoes, almost identical, one pair navy, one pair black. You can guess the rest, I'm sure....... dark winter morning......

15 Mar, 2012

 

Going out in your slippers yet?.........:0)

15 Mar, 2012

 

I was putting my sweaters on inside out when I was at school, so it's not just your age. My brother has been known all his life for putting his vest on inside out and not tucking it in, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with his brain. Think of it this way, GM, you obviously have much more important things going on in your life and your mind than to bother with whether a bunch of people can read what size you wear! OH puts odd socks on the whole time (Now that I am worried about), but I have found myself pouring tea into the milk jug on a couple of occasions now...... Oh Dear!

15 Mar, 2012

 

This reminds me of the time I went to work wearing 2 different shoes!!!!! One was a low heel and the other a wedge. It was early afternoon before one of my clients commented on it! I was not only mortified but quite certain I was beginning to lose my mind......hmmm :/

15 Mar, 2012

 

Snap, Grandmage, I did the same last Monday! My son in law took me to Asda and, as we walked across the car park, I felt uncomfortable around the neck and discovered my jumper was on back to front. I knew I could pull my arms out and twist it round without embarrassing anyone but son in law wouldn't let me. Perhaps just as well :) My family has been giggling about it ever since so I was very pleased to read your blog. Our minds are obviously on higher things :)

15 Mar, 2012

 

I did exactly the same Lil.....both same style but different colour!That was years ago....so no excuse......Wore my jo inside out also this week,GM......didn't notice until my friend had done exactly the sameLOL!!!

15 Mar, 2012

 

Its official= we are all cracking up. LOL.
Thanks, Sticki, Oji, Pam(did that once when fetching the kids from school!) Gattina, Lil, Gee(our son-in-laws do get embarrassed easily) & Meadow. Its good to laugh isnt it? Brilliant stories.

15 Mar, 2012

 

don't worry Granmadge your not on your own, I was walking around Asda when a coat hanger fell out the back of my coat and landed on the floor, people were looking at me probally thinking what has she just pinched, I just forgot to take my coat off the hanger when I left home,

15 Mar, 2012

 

Gee, its even more uncomfortable when you go out with your knickers on back to front,

15 Mar, 2012

 

Thats it Yorks. Lol you are on my official list.!!

15 Mar, 2012

 

I went to school (primary) in my PJ's ..but wearing the uniform on top. Long PJ bottoms..with grey shorts. It was only after going home for dinner Mother Pimpernel realised that I had shown her up.

Bet your posture was fab that day Yorkie

15 Mar, 2012

 

walked like a cripple Pimpernel.

15 Mar, 2012

 

LOl

15 Mar, 2012

 

:))) Thanks for the chuckle, Gran . . . and Yorks too! I'm still laughing . . .

15 Mar, 2012

 

We've all done something similar at some stage. The funniest to me was about a year ago. I noticed my granddaughter (aged 8) kept scratching and raking around her bum area. Eventually, I got her to drop her trousers and she had her knickers on sideways!! She had the waist of the knickers round one of her legs and one knicker leg round her waist - know the wonder she was scratching! lol

15 Mar, 2012

 

Anytime Sheila, if I keep this up I might be blogging on a regular basis!!
Sheilar, Oh bless, Lol. they are so innocent sometimes, great story.

15 Mar, 2012

 

LOL :D You definately needed to buy some plants after that ....
Reminds me of the day I answered the door to the gas meter reader, early one morning .... and then went straight to work. Later in the morning I realised I had only shaved half of my face :/

15 Mar, 2012

 

Oh Hywell, you just made me laugh out loud,

15 Mar, 2012

 

That's good :D
It's what I did when I found out :o)

15 Mar, 2012

 

\0/\0/\0/......cracking up here with laughter....xxx

15 Mar, 2012

 

LOL Hywel, can just see you now!!!! Yorks I also laughed out loud. Great fun Pam.

15 Mar, 2012

 

Most of these are hilarious!! Keep 'em coming :-))

15 Mar, 2012

 

Aren't they Sheilar!!

15 Mar, 2012

 

What a wonderfully crazy crew you all are .
I was at a party recently , came back from the loo , when someone told me discreetly that the back of my dress was tucked in my knickers .......... mortification knew no bounds !
It is the Ides of March , you know .

15 Mar, 2012

 

Now I know for sure why I am back on GoY....your stories are giving me such a laugh....what a great bunch. :)

I don't have a story of my own but my mom worked in a very large dept. store in Vancouver. She was on an escalator going down with customers in front of her. When they got to the departure point the lady in front of her had her knickers fall down... The woman picked them up and stuffed them in her pocket as if nothing was amiss. My mom got some mileage out of that episode.

15 Mar, 2012

 

I`ve lost a waist slip many a time and its ended up in my handbag and get very cross if my jumper is inside out because you feel so embarrassed, I had a friend who would not change hers because she said it was unlucky, she would go out for a walk around the streets just so she could get changed when she returned home without breaking her luck for that day, lol....

15 Mar, 2012

 

Well GM I think its safe to say you are not losing your marbles, its quite clear that these sort of things are the norm, well at least in the gardeners world anyway.
Also get used to it because with the water shortage it wont just be your jumper that you have to wear both ways to save on washing!

15 Mar, 2012

 

Nice someone got this Spring weather I disappointed many people with in the forecast- we've had cloud for 4 days now :(((( Felt like November today . Lovely picture Grandmage glad your spring is here :))))))))))))))))

15 Mar, 2012

 

Lol guys thanks for the giggle. I've not been too bad so far, clothes wise any way (I'm forever walking past the fridge with the milk in my hand - I did once put the milk in the cupboard under the stairs and had walked back to the kitchen before I realised what I had done. I even walked past the fridge on my way in and out lol). The only one I remember with clothes was once accidentally wearing my brothers pj shorts as ordinary shorts when I was on holiday lol. I had a pair in a similar colour and both sets were in the same drawer in the tent.

My mom has issues with shoes lol. Once she went out in one of her boots and one of mine, same colour and size but totally different heel. The worst one though is when she went out in two totally different shoes to see a client. Different colours and different heel heights. She didn't even notice until nearly lunch time lol.

15 Mar, 2012

 

What fun this has been....I can see you Hywel ....a bit two faced I'd say. My main habit is looking for my glasses when they are actually on top of my head. I sometimes have a pair on my nose and a pair on top of my head. I have been known to search and search bending down to look under a cushion when plop! a pair of specs drop onto my nose.
@-@

All I can say is .... join the club! I've been doing most of the things mentioned for years! Had two different shoes on and didn't notice until I got off the train in London, then had to dash around for a shoe shop to buy another pair; worn T-shirts back to front and wondered why I felt strangled; buttoned up a shirt wrongly making the collar stick up at one side; twisted one leg of a pair of tights as I was putting them on so that one leg was slowly being 'strangled'; walked in a very strange fashion towards a 'Ladies' when I realised the elastic in my knickers had snapped and they were slowly travelling south! Hywel's shaving incident must have been funny! As a train commuter for many years I've seen some amazing sights in the mornings! As you can see, Grandmadge - you're not alone! :o)

16 Mar, 2012

 

What a great blog . . sitting here chuckling to myself. What worries me is . . would it even bother me?!!! ;-))

16 Mar, 2012

 

Hi, Driad, W.lass,Lincs, Will, Paul,Sam, Linda, Nariz & Muddy, I have had such a giggle reading your comments, I certainly can see that I am not alone, Lol. Should we all be reserving our places down on the funny farm!! Thanks for the laughs.

16 Mar, 2012

 

Definitely reserve a room for me....just put out a cig on the coffee table thinking it was in the ashtray... :\

16 Mar, 2012

 

Oh Lil, naughty, has it done any damage!! Will add you to my list Lol

16 Mar, 2012

 

Well, the table is pretty wrecked all ready..... :/

17 Mar, 2012

 

A new mosaic top would be in order then!

17 Mar, 2012

 

Good idea Pim.

17 Mar, 2012

 

Lovely daffodil Grandmage Everybody is very cheery today. I turned up for an appointment with a consultant psychiatrist on the wrong day. He saw me anyway and I thought the mistake must have been down to his secretary. He probably thought I should make another appointment as a patient. I checked when I got home and yes it was my mistake.

17 Mar, 2012

 

Thanks & well done Scot. for being seen anyway, that is most unusual, they usually send you away with a flee in your ear!! Lol

17 Mar, 2012

 

Did the same thing last year on holiday, had spent the whole day starting off on the Ferry... with my label showing, even had breakfast and lunch and it wasnt until the evening when I came to change for dinner, that I found out, even OH did not notice and he sat opposite me each time, luckily we were in France, (stupid English !!) so we all do it lol

17 Mar, 2012

 

Brilliant Dd. I am sooooo glad that I am not alone!!

17 Mar, 2012

 

Hmmmm, you've got the wheels turning now Pimp.....

17 Mar, 2012

 

Oh, Scotsgran, you've brought a memory to mind. We had tickets for a concert at the Albert Hall. I'd asked Partner the week before "when is it we're going to the Albert Hall?" "Next Wednesday" came his answer. So - I checked out train timetables, put everything in motion to ensure our timely arrival, on the day got all dressed up, had sandwiches ready for him when he came in from work - off we went - with a little stressful trouble with the tube trains, had a meal in a little Italian restaurant we knew of near the AH, then wandered off up Prince Consort Road. "It's rather quiet?" said Partner - especting to be amongst a crowd of nicely-dressed excited people all heading to the AH. I checked the tickets - wrong day! We were a week too early! So the following week we had to do it all again! We still haven't stopped giggling about it!

18 Mar, 2012

 

Its good to laugh Nariz.

18 Mar, 2012

 

Not as bad as OH - booked flights for a trip to the UK, then a while later booked the car-hire. Didn't check dates, just relied on his memory, and booked a whole month late. Couldn't understand why there was no car waiting for him when he got to Stansted. Duh!" Normally I do all the bookings for travel when we go together, but I thought I'd let Clever-clogs do his own for a change. He's got it wrong three times now. As Daughter says - "If you keep doing it for him, he'll never learn!" Good point, but it's getting expensive!

18 Mar, 2012

 

'Clever-clogs'......Too funny Gattina!

18 Mar, 2012

 

What price education Gattina!!!

18 Mar, 2012

 

Nariz any excuse to go out for a meal eh? Lol What did you go to see, was it Aida? We went last week too!! (but got the right day!) Gattina, I wouldnt let my OH do it, he would be just the same as yours Lol!!

18 Mar, 2012

 

No Grandmadge - it was Oscar Peterson - and rather sad. I remembered watching him on TV as a child with my Dad and being amazed at this huge man sat at a piano who seemed to barely move, but wonderful jazz flowed from his fingers. The brain does funny things with time - you forget that your 'heroes' grow old too - and the sight of once-huge Oscar shuffling with help across the stage to his piano, then us hearing a few wrong notes - and the same tune played twice - just made us sad and we left at 'half-time' so we could try to retain the memories of his good years.

19 Mar, 2012

 

Oh dear! How sad!

19 Mar, 2012

 

Oh Nariz how awful & sad you would think that his agent could tell him to retire wouldnt you? It seems unfair that the AH can charge people to come into a concert like that. We on the other hand simply loved Aida, fab choir and soloists, it was very moving.

19 Mar, 2012

 

Glad you enjoyed it. Grandmadge. I still retain my memories of a once-brilliant Oscar Peterson.

19 Mar, 2012

 

Best thing Nariz, in his day he was brilliant.

19 Mar, 2012

 

I saw Oscar Peterson in concert with Ella Fitzgerald in the early sixties at Nottingham University . I was working in London at the time , so I'm not quite sure what I was doing there . It was a wonderful treat anyway !
We don't talk about memory lapses in my neck of the woods ; its mostly names not recalled .

19 Mar, 2012

 

Great Driad, in the 60's I saw, the beach boys, the kinks, the beatles & rolling stones, georgie fame, bill hayley to name a few!! Those were the days.

19 Mar, 2012

 

I missed out on being a 'child of the 60's' due to a starchy upbringing and an early marriage (now long gone!) but I became a 'rock chick' (or maybe that should be 'rock boiler') when Partner and I saw Radiohead at the CIA - the whole experience of the music, the people and nowhere to sit down was fantastic!

20 Mar, 2012

 

You should listen to 'flower power radio' Gran......its internet radio (on line or with an internet radio set) 50's 60's mostly, no talking except the odd. Groovy man......etc! Songs on there I hadn,t heard in years.....:0)

20 Mar, 2012

 

My only claims to fame were seeing the Bonzo Dog DooDah band live (!) , meeting George Harrison (well, we were in the same room) and George best (naked, asleep and beautiful - him, not me) and being ogled by the actor who was "Bronco Lane" (can't remember his name) when I was wearing one of the first mini-skirts and walking down the Kings Road in Chelsea. A full and happy life! I wasn't allowed to play the Rolling Stones music in the house, though. Maybe not so "Groovy, Man"!

20 Mar, 2012

 

Far out.......

20 Mar, 2012

 

Yeah, man ...........

20 Mar, 2012

 

The Stones were playing at Eel Pie Island when we were there for jazz one night , but we never bothered to go and listen , they were in another part of the building , can you imagine that ?
We come to things when we are ready , Nariz ( its to do with karma ) , so they say , so nothing lost .
I like the idea of flower power radio , Pamg !
Those were the days , but they are good to recall , Grandmage .

20 Mar, 2012

 

The problem was, while we were living them, we didn't KNOW they were going to become the "Good Old days", did we?

20 Mar, 2012

 

This has been a great read from start to finish ... it seems we all do daft things without realising ... OH and I came to the rescue of an elderly lady at a funeral recently ... she had gone to the Ladies prior to the service and returned with her calf length skirt tucked in her undies ... revealing Popsocks with much bare flesh above! ... We stood behind her and whispered she might like to restore her dignity! ... : o (((

20 Mar, 2012

 

Even more brill stories again folks, this blog takes ages to load up with all these great comments on. Thanks all, and Pam will investigate the flower power radio 'cool'.! Shirley, the very thing we would hate to happen, eh?

20 Mar, 2012

 

Indeed, Gm! ... Just read back through the musical comments and must say that one of the best concerts we went to last year was Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings ... he tours regularly with musicians such as Gary Brooker, Georgie Fame, Albert Lee, Andy Fairweather-Low, Paul Carrack ... not to everyone's taste I'm sure but a great show if that's your kind of music! ... :o)

20 Mar, 2012

 

I love all types of music really Shirley, from classic, choral to pop and jazz, whatever takes our fancy I suppose.I bet your concert will Bill Wyman was brilliant, i would have loved it too. I went to the O2 last year to see Simply Reds final tour and it was fantastic, I certainly wasnt the only crinkly wrinklie there, Lol.

20 Mar, 2012

 

We saw Simply Red at the Brighton Dome many years ago ... simply amazing! ... The second half of the show found the audience looking at closed curtains with Mick Hucknall singing his way down all the steps from the top of the theatre ... I'm getting all sentimental here now ... lol!

20 Mar, 2012

 

Thankfully Flowre Power tell you the song and artist I find myself singing along and can,t remember who sang it......some even when I know must have been one hit wonders......

21 Mar, 2012

 

Think we all little ravers on the quiet!!! Lol

21 Mar, 2012

 

Not when I,m doing the washing up and 'bits and pieces' is on.....

21 Mar, 2012

 

or maybe you might be in bits and pieces!! Lol

21 Mar, 2012

 

Or the washing up when we get to the drums.......:0)

22 Mar, 2012

 

Lol. feeling glad all over!

22 Mar, 2012

 

Happy days.....(oops I was a fan of the fonz as well....)

22 Mar, 2012

 

Love Geogie Fame , Simply Red and all above mentioned .
I forgot ( how could I ) that I'd seen Bob Dylan with the Band , but I was newly pregnant and slept through the second half ! I was self-medicating an anti-emetic which made me drowsy .
Not very "poppie " but also saw Johnny Mathis in Singapore .

22 Mar, 2012

 

Driad, I loved Johnny Mathis & Bob Dylan, wish I had seen him, got his Lp's, how about Tony Bennett?
Pam I never watched the fonz!! You must be younger than me I think!!

23 Mar, 2012

 

I,m 60 in may Gran.....one of those whose state pension doesn,t arrive until I,m 62......
Happy days was set mostly around an american coffee bar and the tns that went there, now I think about it I suppose it was like 'friends' of a different generation

24 Mar, 2012

 

Yes you are right it was like 'friends', but just didnt watch it, you are not much younger than me, I hit 62 next week so we are from the same era!!! Welcome to our club Pam. Sorry you missed out with your pension, those MP's. need shooting!! Sorry..... look at the budget this week, what a mess! :~(

24 Mar, 2012

 

My state pension age has just gone up to 66!!!

24 Mar, 2012

 

Thats awful Sheilar! So sorry, they certainly want their pound of flesh.

24 Mar, 2012

 

And I thought I was badly done by having to wait for two extra years...........

24 Mar, 2012

 

2 is still long enough Pam. Most unfair.

24 Mar, 2012

 

I'm absolutely gutted! I was gearing myself up to finish well before 2020 - that's a long time off!!!

24 Mar, 2012

 

It is Sheila, its the bus pass etc.but at the moment prescriptions are still 60...I was pleased he didn,t change it in the budget.....
