Mother’s Day Musings

IMG_0209I love being a mum .

And today is Mothers Day here in Australia .. which is nice . Because I’m a mum .

AND know I’m “so blessed” ( to quote the millions of female Facebook users )to have even have kids

 

BUT…

When  the kids are being ruddy annoying and simultaneously , I am needing a caffeine refuel , let’s just say , it ain’t a pretty scene in the Flett household .

So , yet again I share with you through  ” Sandy’s World” cartoon strip, another issue of womanhood – combined “Caffiene Defiency /Offspring- induced Insanity ” . A deadly combination for me , and I’m guessing for many others like me .

And even if you aren’t a mum,   for whatever reason that may be , I’m  sure you ,like me , have had those times when small and large children have been getting up your nose , whilst at the same time you are hankering for your next caffeine injection .

For example , imagine you are at your local supermarket waiting in the self serve check out queue . It’s 8:15am on a Wednesday morning and you have only had ONE coffee . And that was at 5:45 am . And you need your next refuelling . And in front of you is a 4 year old with adoring parents  who say “of course you can do the scanning sweetie”.  So if that is the case for you , I’m thinking this cartoon will  have some resonance with you also .

So , enjoy.

And find the full cartoon in the aptly named ” Cartoon”  section , under ” Sandy’s World ” in this webpage ….

If you know a knitting or crochet addict

IMG_0902It has come to my attention that there is a real and hidden addiction epidemic affecting many women , and possibly men , in our modern 21st century society . You may well have a friend , family member , or partner , who is deeply affected by this addiction , which in turn has adverse affects on you – which is sad .

It is called ” Knitting and Crochet Addiction” , or  ‘KCA’

In fact , just yesterday , I met an individual with the said addiction . – let’s call her ” Inga” . ‘ “Inga”Ng of Centenary Suburbs Brisbane Australia, has taken the first step in dealing with her problem Or ” disease” (one doesnt want to be judgemental about such things) , as ‘Inga” has ADMITTED TO HER ADDICTION. ‘ Inga” still has a ways to go with her rehabilitation however , as she disguises her addiction as actually being a way of “caring for the needy” in the world by starting a group for other addicts who join together in their den every Friday afternoon at 1pm , knitting and crocheting blankets and other warm goods for homeless people , families in domestic violence situations and other such noble causes. They are even running a DROP IN AND KNIT DAY FOR THE NEEDY  on Saturday the 15th July , at Westside Church  of Christ . It is unfortunate that a Christian group is providing the venue for this , but it is what it is .

ANYWAY …..

I digress…

What I’m trying to say is. please ,  please , PLEASE dear blog readers. , share this blog post and  this cartoon with the world , so you can spread the word about this silent epidemic of KCA .

Here in Australia , it is particularly timely to share this post and cartoon  , with the occurrence of Mothers Day tomorrow , the 14th May . You may just save a family from destruction

Thankyou

My love is sent   through to you , via this , the amazing worldwide web.
