Elves on the shelf relaxing

My elves are here having a relaxing break for so long, before they go travelling elsewhere. A break that’s needed, before helping Santa later in the year.

It’s the weekend

I said originally in an earlier post I wouldn’t do these regular. Lol. But here’s another one.

So as you know, my weekend starts from Friday evening mostly.
Last night, when back home from work, I chanced it and watched a dvd before going to bed. I didn’t fall asleep watching my dvd as I thought I would. I watched The Notebook. A lovely film that I have seen before.

I plan on doing a few things today off my to do list. One being the elves are back. Look out for a one off post next month. Maybe you will see them this December before they go and help Santa.

After dropping off a bag of dvd’s at the charity shop, I plan to treat myself to a vegan lunch in Frankie and Bennys after seeing they have a new menu. Then I will call into my local Sainsburys to get myself another fleece jacket for my morning job, after seeing that my first one washes well and still looks good after a few washes.
Then when back at home, I plan to start reading a book for an hour or two, which I will mention that book title in my Chit-chat March post, followed by watching a dvd.

(Adding Sunday to this post after airing, after realising I did not mention Sunday.)

Sunday will be staying in my flat. Definitely staying in this Sunday. So I will be a hermit. I plan to read and dvd and just sit and relax, while looking out at the trees from time to time in the garden, seeing what birds may be about.

What’s your weekend plans?

And after sharing your weekend plans here, why not before you go, say hello and introduce yourselves here in this post: Where are you from? Tell me a bit about yourself.

My answers to Fibbing Friday – 7th February

It’s Fibbing Friday and with how many posts I written this week, I wasn’t going to play this week. But I couldn’t resist, so here they are. 😊

For how to play, the questions and to tag the original post if you are joining in yourself with this one, then please visit this post https://pcguyiv.wordpress.com/2020/02/07/fibbing-friday-february-7th-2020/.

  1. What is the significance of Groundhog Day? It’s so you can have an extra special mundane day, if you want to.
  2. Why is the NFL’s championship game called, “The Super Bowl”? I hear it’s a fish bowl. But not sure otherwise.
  3. Why do we exchange notes of love and affection on St. Valentine’s day? It’s to suck up because you didn’t show your love for the rest of the year, like you are supposed to.
  4. Why is President’s Day on the third Monday of February? He didn’t like the first Monday if the month as it was the most blue Monday of the month. But he didn’t want to be the last either.
  5. What exactly is Mardi Gras all about? It’s exactly that. The grass is mardy.
  6. Why does Lent always begin on a Wednesday? They don’t like Monday’s for a start.
    Tuesday is a day off.
    Friday is a chippy night.
    The weekend is yours.
    But Thursday I don’t know, as it’s top secret.
    So that means it just leaves Wednesday.
  7. Why is that Wednesday called, “Ash Wednesday”? It’s the left overs from the barbecues and the crumbs from the toaster.
  8. Why doesn’t February get at least 30 days like all the other months? Someone wanted a month of exactly 4 weeks.
  9. Why does a 29th day get added to February during leap years? Someone wanted an extra day off, as well as skip anniversaries.
  10. Why is every 4th year called a “leap year”? I don’t know. But it’s down to that person in question 9.

1. Why did the boy remain on the burning deck? He wanted to feel, hot hot hot.

2. Where will you find a toad in the hole? You won’t find it, cos there is a hole and there is nothing at the bottom. So no place to hide.

4. How many eggs are in a clutch? I don’t have a clutch, so there is none.

5. Why do we say someone is a barrel of laughs? Because there is always someone who will roll on the floor laughing. It can be contagious. So beware. You will be joining in.

7. What are love handles? ((She lifts me up.))

8. What was Granny Smith famous for? Pole dancing on the side.

It’s Fibbing Friday and the theme is cats. My goodness, to say I am a cat lover, I was finding this a little tough for my fibbing answers hard. 😁

Ok… So here I go with my answers.

1. Why did ancient Egyptians worship cats? They thought they were goddesses.

2. Why is it said that cats have nine lives? I think someone lost count, because they have more than 9 lives.

3. Why are cats afraid of cucumbersWhen they have a cucumber placed right behind them, they have every right to jump and be suspicious.

4. Why do cat eyes seem to glow in the dark? They are vampires.

5. Why do cats have retractable claws? They are re-sharpening them.

6. Why do we train cats to use a litter box, but train dogs to go outside? My goodness. Think of the mess if we had and the room they would need. They would need a room to themselves.

7. Why do cats purr? A good sign they are fine and working.

8. Why are black cats considered bad luck? I don’t think they are unlucky. But if going out in the night, they need a refective jacket.

9. What is the musical, Cats about? The obvious as the title says. But it’s a long one.

10. What’s the big deal about Dick Whittington’s cat? Had a strong stomach.
