It Cant Be....... 2nd Blob Birthday....So Lets Have a Give Away...


Ok........ I just aint had time to Twaddle of late...... so much has been going on here, I might explain over the coming weeks, if I decide to continue with Twaddling....

I cant believe its been 2 whole years since I was shoved into the world of blobbing kicking and screaming.... Up until just a few months before Twaddle was born, I didnt even have much of a clue as to what a blob was....

Bobs blob (over there in me side bar) was me first encounter of the blobbing world, and jebus, what a blob to start with LOL..... I will confess it did take me weeks and weeks of reading Tubob for me to even understand it lol....... at times I thought I was trying to read some alien language.... and then it dawned, slowly at first, that I was reading a 'master of words' and almost every few words I had to google the meaning of words LOL.....

But through Bobs Blob I then blob-encountered some people that have remained wonderful true friends ever since.... real people that have carved their way into me heart and soul (well me soul is still lost but they're in there wherever it is).... yes, me fellow 'Gumbies'.... you know who you are..... these Gumbies, I hope know, that I would do anything for them.... in whatever capacity I can at the drop of a hat...... they know I love em..... also through Bobs blob I was led to the Dingleberries Newspaper Site left of the Staples, where after a little bit of a rough start (a few thought I was not for real lol) I have been taken under their wing.... like on Bobs joint I have come across some wonderful people, and learnt to blob around, finding some very special people and blobs on there..... Even after I closed down the newspaper site for a while the crimbo before last with a bomb scare LOL..... to bloody funny... what? I didnt Twaddle about it LOL....... suffice to say, the bomb squad saw the funny side of it.... innocent I tell ya, I plead Im innocent

Anyways, I started Twaddle for two reasons, first of, cos I was bullied into it LOL.... and secondly so that I could maybe keep a diary so that one day when Im dead and gone, me lads might get to have a glimpse at a side of their mum that maybe they dont always get to see, and words that I dont always get to share....... except, they dont know about me blob so someone would have to give them the heads up if I snuff it LOL

Many people over the last 2 years have passed through here, many have stayed (I cant begin to understand why) and some have moved on and left or snuffed it......

Its been a funny 2 years, so much has gone on in this short time......... Ive often spilled to much of 'me' on here LOL..... ya see, believe it or not, Im really quite a private person, I do know that over this past couple of years, my 'well ard head' was allowed to become a bit soft, and it lead to me letting me guard down a bit and that made me a bit gullible ... ya see, Ive always been as tough as old nails, always only had me to rely on... always been the strong one..... cos Ive had to be......

Never underestimate the power of the blob world, when I found meself at the lowest point in me life, strangers that read Twaddle dragged me up by me short and curlies and kept me head above water, until I had the energy to blow up me armbands and stay afloat meself..... so I thank you for that...... you to know who you are.... those that I had no clue about held out a hand of friendship, and those that I thought I knew and needed to care, didnt give a stuff LOL and so the world turns...

I dont know how to be anyone but myself....... and those that I speak to or have spoken to on the phone know Im exactly the same as I am here LOL.....

So..... in honour of me 2nd blob birthday Ive decided to do a give-away...... I aint decided what to give away as yet LOL.... but it will probably be a box of well proper British goodies.......

So....... leave a comment on me 2nd birthday post (yes blurkers come out of the woodwork) and I will pick out a winner and send ya, whether ya near or far, a wonderful box of scrummies......

I wanna fank all those that come through Twaddle, those that make me laff and those that make me cry, those that make me think and those that made me love......Im not very good with words.... but many of you have touched the very core of my being........ and I always swore I would never let that happen....but, I let you become real.... was that a mistake? sometimes I wonder.... and so the world turns, and so peoples lives get entwinned and twist and turn and sometimes snap and get used and hurt in this blob world.....

Jebus, sounds like Im at the Oscars LOL

But through your blobs I have travelled the world via your stories and your amazing photos, I read the most amazing food blobs, and shared the most heart wrenching stories..... I have made wonderful friends in Canada and America and bloody hell, even some northern maties over here, and a jock lmfao.... and South Africa and the bloody Welsh LOL..... I have cried with you and laffed at your antics....... I even dragged two of me oldest internet maties into the blob world.... dont know if they think I did them a favour or not LOL

I hope that in some small way, be it only a tiny way I might of reached out and touched some of you...... cos I know so many of you have touched me...... not in that way you dirty bastards LOL

I am me, just me, cant and will never be anyone else........ those that I call friends know, I will be a friend for life.... I aint everyones cuppa tea but thats their problem not mine.... we cant be everything that others wished us to be, cos I know, I can only be meself...... Im honest and true and make the most amazing friend.... and I never say words or make promises I dont mean....

Ok, Im waffling a load of bollocks now lol........so, leave a comment and ya never know, maybe you might even win a box of crap from me LOL

Oh, before I go, just wanna share this picture of Sprite with you, oh and Pod and Dutchy...... Ive had Sprite since she was 10 weeks old 9 hours a day, 5 days a week...she will be 3 in May..... I love this child more then any other child I have ever minded......

These were taken today in me garden.... it was an almost spring like day, so we spent most of it outside.... a mucky kid is a happy kid, right? :)



This child today came up to me and said 'I lub you Meldee' :) she made my heart swell... at least someone loves me right LOL



Tiz such fun to get mucky :) - This is my darling Sprite and Dutchy (his mum is from Holland hence the nicname)... we had been digging for worms to feed to me chickens.... you can see by their faces how much love and fun I have to share..... I hope that I can build memories for them that they will keep forever...



Only had Pod for about 7 weeks now, I wonder if he will crawl and stay snuggled into my heart as much as Sprite has..... he holds out his arms to me, when his dad drops him off in the mornings.... I think he is happy here.....

So come on blobbers and blurkers........ you know you want the goodies LOL..... over 53,000 have sneaked in here over the past 2 years..... who would of thunk that :)

Happy 2nd Blob Birthday, MT!! You have been such a joy to read over these last two years...just because you write about being you...and that is very special!

ChrisB said...

Happy 2nd Blogiversary. I don't recall now how I found you but I never fail to have a chuckle at your highly entertaining posts.
Your minded children are really cute, and my guess is that Pod will find his way into a corner of your heart.

JBelle said...

don't bother with this contest. just send me the stuff.

JeanC said...

Happy 2nd blobiversary :) It is addicting isn't it hehehehehe

LadyStyx said...

Happy 2nd Blobby Birthday! Like ChrisB, Im not certain how I managed to find you ...but Im awfully glad I did. I just know that anytime I visit, I need to make sure I have kleenex at hand because I'll be crying from either sadness or hysterics (most times BOTH in the same entry). You are truly a spot of sunshine in life.

Anonymous said...

Happy Anniversary from one of those 'blurkers'. As a newbie to blogging I've done a lot of trawling looking at others' efforts, trying to decide how to go about this business. I visit you often and hope and pray I can let myself shine through the words the way you do. Keep it up. Love ya already!

Pauline said...

Gosh, sorry for proving how new I am to all this. I didn't mean to be anonymous - that sounds even worse than being a 'blurker' :)

Idaho Dad said...

Congrats! Time sure flies when it's trying to get to the other side. Or something like that.

Lisa said...

A box o'crap from Marmy!!! Oh, me, me ME!!

I don't know what a "gumbie" is, but I think I want to be one!!

As for Practically Grown's birthday message... much thanks! And she puts me to shame in the snarky quick wit!! I bow down to her superiority!

Celticspirit said...

Your twaddle blob is just lovely! Happy 2nd year of blogging. Very cute kids. I did home daycare myself for some years and it was very rewarding.

Have a wonderful week.

buffalodick said...

Happy 2nd! You ain't the easiest woman out there to figure out, but you are worth the effort!

Go Figure said...

MT: 53,000 snuck in, aye? Well you best be for investing in a new alarm system. And no for my prize I do NOT want any of that marmite stuff. HA!

Pamela said...

I LOL'd at your looking up words in the dictionery.

You see, I've tried to do the same when I read your posts -- but the words aren't there. Bwaaa ha ha ha ha ha.

Oh yes, you've made me have fun and tears, dear.

Happy Blogiversary!!

ChicagoLady said...

Happy 2nd Blob Birthday!

Even though I'm a relative newbie to your blog, I'm always learning something new when I come to read your twaddle. Whether you're talking chickens, trips with the nippers, flowers, or the next door neighbor, you always entertain me.

As an American that hasn't had the opportunity to "see the world" it's nice to read your blob and get a personal view into life in England. Even if I don't understand all the words you use, your meaning still comes through, putting a smile on my face.

The nippers are adorable, especially Pod. I'd be hooked on him if I had the opportunity to be his child minder.

Word Tosser said...

ok, I get the prize...because I am a cheap date... see all you need to do is send me a tiny envelope of Marmite. Just a taste, you know... to see if I like it...
And quit the Taddle? I don't think so.. you can quit us... you love us too much... and you know we love you...
So hope I am around to celebrate your 10th year post of your life on the beach, with drink in hand, and a handsome man bringing them to ya...

Robin said...

You just think you've lost your soul.

Problem is, it got lost in the huge shadow of your heart.

Mel...you're more okay than you think you are.

Happy 2nd Blob year to you!

ciara said...

crikey! i thought for a moment kate winslet invaded ya blog lol

i'm sorry i haven't been around or emailed you as of late...i've been getting busy, or maybe not. lol i don't know...seems like i never know if i'm coming or going. then i have all these blobs to take care off on top of my kids and husband. hehe

it's all YOUR fault you know....i never fail to say that it was mel who got me started on blobbing. i'm so glad you sent me the email to let me in to your blobbing world. i've been learning more about you and your family these couple of years....i have cried, laughed, loved, thought you were plain mad! in/over your posts.

can you believe that this is like the 7th year since we 'met' each other in the java chat? is that part of the gloomies, too? lol

my goodness we're just a couple of old slag bags lol hehe i love how we use that term affectionately :)congrats on your two years...hope you don't have to give up blobbing forever. even if ya just post once a wk or once a month, ya know we'd still be here :)

i love ya, matie :) xo

p.s. the lil nippers are adorable :)

Coral said...

I am so glad we have wormed our way into your heart - sounds suspiciously like heart worm, and that is not good!!

'Your' children are too gorgeous - especially PP - too sweet!

Happy Blogaversary!

Flowerpot said...

a very happy 2nd blob birthday MT - and you deserve all of your loyal followers! Take care now.

Dumdad said...

Wow, two years already in the blogosphere (a tad longer than me) and 53,000 visitors (a lot more than me). Big congrats and best wishes from Gay Paree!

Tori_z said...

Happy 2nd birthday to your blog! :)

I hope you don't decide to quit Twaddling.... I'd miss you if you stopped all together!

I'm always up for free goodies, but I don't mind if I don't get them. Most of them I probably buy regularly anyway... Send them to one of them lot over the other side of the world who are missing out on all the tasty goodies we have over here! :)

softinthehead said...

And Many Happy Returns I hope!! Don't be twaddling off anywhere - you would be sadly missed. Its been wonderful getting to know you and your kids - I can see why they all love you. Keep on twaddling for us all. :)

Bina said...

That little girl is just BEAUTIFUL!!! I wouldn't want to let her go if I had her in my house!

Happy Anniversary, or Birthday, and all that!!!! Two years. I think I've been reading you about a year, but I know I would desperately miss you if you left! You are a sure bet for making me laugh and smile. I am so happy I found your blog. You are an amazing person, woman and mother.

Oh, and don't think that comment about "if" you decide to keep blobbing slipped past me! There is no way on god's green earth you can disappear from the blogosphere!

Studly told me that if I ever win the lottery, the first thing I'm to do is fly over to Jolly Old England and track you down for a visit!! He loves your posts too!

B.R.M said...

Happy 2nd Blob Birthday Mel! I love reading it - makes my day. And your soul isn't lost - it is just resting - gearing up for a new adventure.

Now, I am going back to bed with a cup of tea, because I am unemployed and can watch mindless television anytime I want to! And I just might sell jam on gigham covered tables, take in ironing and such. :)

cast in the name of god, ye not guilty said...

I'm still here Mel!!

Happy Blob B-Day =]

Keep it up!!!

Punkn said...

*wipes a tear* It ain't nice to make me cry. Your blob is so open and honest. I've loved it from the moment I stepped in here. Friends from around the world - who wouldhave thought it possible when we were young. Certainly not me. The part I like best is through the internet all of the preconceptions of a person is stripped away and we fall in love with the words that usually seem to come from the heart. At least that is the way it is with me. Happy 2nd Anniversary! I'm certainly glad I got into blogging (only a little over a year for me) and you'd better not stop - I'd have to track you down.
Goodies sound good :)

Elizabeth said...

"If" you decide to keep twaddling??? Excuse me??? Uh, I just found you, you know. That would be totally unfair of you to disappear.
Oh...I get it.
This is one of those times when the same word means something different if you're in England...and you're actually telling us that you'll be twaddling MORE, right?
RIGHT???

Kati said...

*grin* Hey Toasty!!!! Happy "Birthday"! Glad you started blogging. Even though I don't get to read and comment very often lately, I still enjoy coming by about every week and seeing what craziness is going on at your place. Your "kids" are adorable!

Angela said...

Congratulations Marmie! We couldn't love a blog or a blogger more!
And we always love your parcels!

Love,
Angela

btw: "Ten Tiny Tadpoles" is going to Kindergarten this week... they are studying the life cycle of frogs! And it will be made known that it is from You- b/c that is a BIG DEAL to my tadpoles!

Lulda Casadaga said...

MELDEE...I LOVES YA TOO...right now my black lab Frisco is barking a "Happy Anniversary" to you too!
My Boston Terrier BeBe is saying who cares about blogs...:P
Thanks for keeping me laughing at times when I needed it...I just wish I lived closer, so we could meet up and get into some fun/trouble adventures...oh well, we're there in spirit for sure.

The kiddes are too cute...your lucky! And so are they...

Frum Helen Back said...

Wow, 2 years you've been doing this and I missed the first year so you gotta keep sharing yourself with us Melody. I love reading everything you write.

Akelamalu said...

Mel it's been my absolute pleasure getting to know you, I thought you'd been blogging years more than me you had so many commenters by the time I found you.

Anyway m'love Happy Blogversary and please carry on cos I'd miss your antics terribly if you stopped. Love Ya Gal. x

inlandempiregirl said...

Congratulations. It is funny because I thought you had blogged forever when I started because I had heard so much about you!! Thank you for you gracious comments, thank you for being there with your words when I needed them very much, thanks for appreciating our mom... she can't wait to meet you, and thanks for showing all the rest of us in this blobbing world that it is okay to be real. I hope you are not at a crossroads and thinking about quitting also. I would miss my visits here for sure. Best wishes across the pond to you.

Cindy said...

Happy 2nd "Blob" birthday! And congratulations! And in case you haven't noticed, all these 53,000 would form an instant posse if you disappeared, and we would hunt you down!
I was so surprised to read that you've only been blogging for two years- I figured you had been here a lot longer than that. Anyway, in the time that I've known you, you have come to mean so much to me. I've read your posts, laughed and cried with you and feel that you are every bit as much a real friend as ones I actually see. I love the way you let your heart shine through all that you write- no pretentious airs with you, just an honest, real person. The best kind.

jolie-jordan said...

I think "Idaho Dad" should be disqualified from the "giveaway" as he is so blatantly trying to kiss butt what with having a Moose sitting next to his comment. A snesky way to get your subliminal attention so he can get the package of goodies. Not fair Mr. Idaho Dad...but awlful dammed clever of you. Now, I want a moose next to my comment too.

I'm taking a vote here...should Idaho Dad be disqualified? (just kidding) YES? NO? sorta kidding.

So anyhow...don't even suggest that you will stop writing you "BloB"...how unkind would that be to those of us that have become hooked on a "Marmie" fix.

I remember when you first appeared on my blog...I thought, what a kook this one is. Next thought was,how the hell do all the kooks in the world seem to find me? (I have stories you simply would not believe)...like the time a strange man (in the middle of a busy city sidewalk) pulled out his wanger and wanted me to verify how pretty it was. Spooky...so okay the thing was sorta pretty. LMAO

Anyhow...you are the best kook I've ever allowed in and I think you are wonderful with those nippers you mind. That little Sprite has the most wonderful, beautiful blue eyes. But...really Mel do you make them watch the chicks eat the worms? Gag me with a spoon. I hope they don't have nightmares. I still have bad one's after seeing those dammed (fake eyes) in you holiday bird. I will never eat turkey again.

Heck that animal rights group, PETA should hire you. Believe me when I say that no-one would ever eat meat again. I (LMAO) at the goofy things you do...you kook.

Don't worry...I am keeping an eye out for your wandering soul. Last I saw it, it was heading for Vegas looking for a good show and a pink cocktail and wouldn't you know it had brought me along for the ride. Wonderful shows in Vegas, don't you know? The cocktail was great as was the jacuzzi, shrimp and slot machines. Gosh...leave that soul of your's alone...it's just in search of itself. It'll be back and so will I.

I gotta go now. I have housework and important things like that to do.

Love ya Mel and here's to another two good years of good twaddle.

XXXXJolie

soul pumpkin said...

...i lub you too, Meldee...my arms(and funds) are way too short to reach across "the pond", but you can always find my pumpkin heart lurkin' about yer garden...
...and a thousand thank you's to Pixie for steering me in your direction...

Mei Del said...

JeanieSpokane said...

I fell in love with you right from the get go, Marmite! I started my 'blob' on your first anniversary, having met you through Huckleberries. You are the funniest, warmest, most outrageous, endearing writer in the whole universe! (Do NOT stop!)

Cedar Street Kid said...

A toast to you, MT, on your 2nd anniversary. I lift my glass and salute you for many fine moments, and many great memories. Salute, my friend.

Anonymous said...

Happy 2nd anniversary. I've enjoyed everything you write and I read your blob every chance I get. I don't comment much anymore, but I always love to read your stuff and your comments on the Dingleberries. The Stickman

Joey, Carolyn and Scott said...

Ok, Marmie. I took you up on your offer. I'm here, and I would LOVE a box of crap from Britain. Especially if the box contained those yummy chocolate-covered digestive biscuits!

BTW, the kids in your care look so happy. It's clear you take pride in your work. Bravo.

Book and Hook said...

Happy 2nd Blob Birthday!
I love reading what you have to say/write. It almost always makes me smile. So glad I've found my way to this corner of the internet.

Robin said...

Happy, Happy Mel! I'll never forget the two days I sat and read your entire blob~ alot of it out loud to my husband. Lord, you're funny.

And I can't forget you. Hell, there's a chicken named Brian on my floor..... or under a chair, or on a windowsill.... ")

Deb said...

Happy Blog Birthday to You! I haven't been here since the beginning but for the past year I have enjoyed your honesty, your humor and your wonderful accent! You have also taught me a thing or two along the way! Now the last time you were giving something away I didn't win and was sad for days so...;)

And those muddy little ones are TOO cute! Celebrate!

JeanneH said...

What a heart you have, Mel....those babies are precious... I remember early on when you sent dfo some sort of card and the poloice were called in because something sharp was poking through the envelope...that was the first I'd ever heard of MarmiteToasty. Those were kinda fun days, trying to figure it all out...you won a place in Dave's heart, and now mine, too... so, Congrats on hanging in there for two years, through thick and thin...surgeries and therapies, sad and glad times. I love you, Mel...JeanneH in Idaho (where it's snowing again! xoxoxo

Go Figure said...

MT: I keep checking the mail. No prize yet. What gives? Don't tell me you sent it to that darn JBelle!

rebel said...

Happy Birthday to you! I found your blog over at punkn's place and I'm glad I did. I've been readin' about your life over in England. You have a great blog and I've loved lookin' at your pictures. I live in the Ozarks of Missouri,USA, Missouri pronounced with an 'ah' on the end.
Like I said, Happy Birthday, I can't imagine bloggin' for 2 years, I've not even been at it for a year yet.
I like all the pictures of your boys, I have one son who is in the Army, and one daughter and a beautiful granddaughter.
I'm so happy to have found a blogger in England. Have a great day.

Jen said...

Woo Hoo! Two years! Here's hoping there's many more to come.

Betty said...

You may think you're not very good with words, but you are. Your blog is very enjoyable to read.

eZ said...

Congrats on the bog Birthday!
I have enjoyed lurking your blob for about a year.
Your house is a fun place to "grow a child". Lots of Toasty's love, mud, worms, and friends. I love the nicknames you gave the children.
Here's to You(raising a glass)!

Anne Bradshaw said...

So glad I found your blog. I LOVE MARMITE!!! Since I'm now in the USA, I have to find a Brit shop so I can keep stocked up. The nearest is an hour's drive away. Worth every inch.

Lucky you living on the south coast. My ancestors are from Devon and Cornwall - a favourite haunt each summer. Aaaagh, great memories :-)

Hey, if you like contests, go check out mine at Not Entirely British this week. Pretty cool books and CD if you ask me. All about pre-birth experiences.

I'll be back!

Lee Harris said...

Greetings from Mexico:
Happy 2nd Birthday! Ah, we need to keep an eye on you. The "terrible twos" are here, well, there. I look forward to more chuckles and giggles.
And, thanks for dropping by my blob -- that Feedjit gadget that I use lets me know when you've been by and it warms my over-heated heart. Gawwds, it was 88 degrees today.......
Read you soon.

Punkn said...

I've got it figured out... you aren't going to do any give away until Iggy gets back from vacation and has a chance to weigh in. I don't blame ya.... but I want to win!

PinkAcorn said...

Happy 2nd Blobber !! You are not allowed to quit blobbin, you have the funniest blob in the blob-o-sphere. You can tell a story like no other MT...gives me hope that I can do the same some day.

A happy one to you indeed. Out of the woodwork, a true blurker. Thanks for life and true belly busters!

jana said...

Well, today is the Blogfest. We will sure miss the fact that you, as such an important part of the group will not be there.... I'm sure you will hear all about it, and of course, see the pictures. I will be thinking of you this afternoon!!

Maggie May said...

Congratulations on the second birthday of the blog. My first one was in January. So yours is older! Don't know why I pointed that out as I am sure you were perfectly capable of working that out.

Little Sprite is particularly lovely. The other two are as well. I expect you get very fond of them.

Lets hope you carry on blogging for years....... Many drop out after 2 years, I have heard. That won't happen to you though as you are full of laughs and good blogging material. LOL!

Intense Guy said...

Happy Anniversary! I hope you have many more blog entries to write - your hijinxes and hillarity ought to be on the BBC.

I'm glad I tumbled into your blog - you always manage to put a smile on my face and to tickle me tummy (whilest occassionally pulling at the heart strings).

Your wee ones show such radiance and joy - surely their smiles will live on in their hearts and minds and they will always treasure the times they had with "Meldee". Such blue eyes Sprite has... and Pod is such a cutey. How do you manage to only get the cutest nippers? :)

*Hugs* I've missed ya whilest being away.

Frum Helen Back said...

Marmie, I missed you at blogfest today. I even checked out the mens room to see if you were in there.

green libertarian said...

Two years? Why, it seemed just like yesterday...

You're a national treasure, Marmite, nay, an international treasure.

I'll be back more often, as I desparately need your off-beat, brill humor, more now than ever.

And the lovely cutie Sprite... Oh god, she is so adorable.

Lub you too, Marmite.

See how popular you are? It's a pleasure to read a blob from someone who has both feet set so firmly on the ground! You tell it how it is and a lot of people appreciate that. No airs and graces, snobbery or pretence.

Love the children's photos, especially Pod. He really appeals to menopausal me.

buffalodick said...

Get your tonsils taken out.. you would still have time to learn English! And think of the ice cream they give you after...

Go Figure said...

MT: Yep, the story of my life, great ladies who end up getting their respective foots chewed off by bears!(does a foot taste better with marmite?--or perhaps marmite tastes better with a foot!) HA! Oh, and EGAD! not marmite! Did I say, EGAD! already? HA!

Tori_z said...

I don't mind you doing that. We've got a spare room, and it wont take a minute to change the sheet and such. :)

Anyway, hope you're feeling better soon. Tonsilitis is no fun at all! I've had it... Didn't stop me talking mind. But then, neither did falling down a steep bank... All I did was pause my sentence long enough to say "oops" then I carried on with my sentence like nothing had happened. LOL!

Lisa said...

I know you are busy and sick and all, but how long to I have to wait to win my box o'crap ala Marmy??

We could just cut those offending tonsils out! I got a pair of nail clippers. That would work, right?

Jackie said...

Thanks for your visits to my blog. It always brightens my day to hear from you.

'I lub you Meldee'

Lisa said...

Studly just read about a British woman who can't quit belching. He says he hopes you feel better and quit it very soon!

Eastendmom said...

Mel, I've read this post plus comments more than once, trying to come up with something clever or heartfelt or preferably both to add. Well, failing that, I'll just let you know I'm so glad I found your blob, you never fail to put a smile on my face. And you've got some crazy fans, too! Love and thanx from New Jersey, where the snow is rapidly receding ...

Robin said...

Hope you're feeling better. From tonsils to chest....

You ever think about doing something, ANYTHING half-assed?

Tori_z said...

Sorry you've been so poorly. Hope you're feeling better soon and don't have many more buckets of snot balls to get rid of. ;)

buffalodick said...

Stubborn to the last... when will you listen? So independent.. you are your own worst enemy! You ain't bullet proof, nor immune to human frailties. Get your tounsils out, shut up for awhile, and eat your ice cream..

soul pumpkin said...

...indeed...what Buffalo sez...a snip-snip here and a snip-snip there and no longer will those bothersome things be swelling up to the size of a baby's bottom...

MarmiteToasty said...

~(((((Lisa)))))))~ nah that aint me, Im the one that has the continual farts :)..... you and Studly so make me smile - fanks for that, I so need that this week......xxxxxxxxx

Hi, Marmee...I'll try this again...there is a difference between a blog and a blob. I write a blog, but I AM a 'blob'. Shapeless and formless. So now you know. I'm jealous. You get more feedback from one posting than I get for a years' worth. Happy second blob-iversary...

MarmiteToasty said...

~((((some guy who blobs))))~ oh hush will ya.... it matters not what the shape form colour or size of someone.... tis the love and life and spirit and inner warmth and the compassion and empathy and did I say love that is the package of a person....

You blob is one just lovely..... such a mixture of things you blob about...... I bet you get 100s of blurkers....

EVERYONE GO TO SOME GUYS BLOB lol.... wow, never had anyone me jealous of me before lmfao....xxxxxxx

Tori_z said...

Gee thanks. LOL!

ciara said...

i will have to email you so i can see what the devil you have been up to :) love ya xoxo

Angela said...

Hope you are feeling better now. I think that you passed your illness to the entire family! Ughh...

Angela

some guy who blogs said...

AH-HAAAA! Now I know! That's it...I must get a lot of blurkers...no one wants to admit reading my blog, so they blurk. That's why my numbers are down! Seriously, Marmee, you must be truly wondrous indeed to have so many blog (or in my case, 'blob') fans...but then again, you do nice work. Always fun to read ya...

Dumdad said...

There's an award awaiting you at my blog.

Hope you feel better.

Mom not Mum said...

Happy Blob Birthday! I haven't been a good blogger lately either - but I drop by every now and then.

Go Figure said...

MT: Well, well, well...First any woodsperson knows full well that bears hibernate in the winter and thus I detect a 'story' being spun. Sure it could have been a polar bear, but they are pretty rare in the lower 48. Also, 'crash' heck, it wasn't anything more than... perhaps... a wrong turn. And we both know that had you not bailed out you would have been just fine. Sleeping bag, well when the 'bear' arrived you didn't have to stay in it, ya dern brit...and if you are laying blame...you best look a tad bit closer to home. HA!

MarmiteToasty said...
