Thankyou to Sugar for this graphic ,as you see Kizzie is reading her journal ....
Last Saturday Evening, Maurice and I went over to Peterborough, His brother Mike is sixty five, so invited his family out for a meal .We met up at Mike and Jackie’s, left our car at theirs and all went in a Taxi, along with their son, also called Mike. We started at out at the Bull Hotel ,for drinks in the lounge bar there ,to wait for Francis ,Mike and Jackie’s daughter ,and her husband Craig. When they arrived Mike proceeded to embarrass every one with lots of family photographs. Our table was booked for eight o clock ,so we took a short walk just around the corner to a very nice Indian restaurant ,Where we were greeted like royalty as we were shown to our table ,The food was absolutely delicious ,and we all ate our fill ,The company was excellent as you would expect at a family gathering such as this ,jokes anecdotes and reminiscences all served to make a very enjoyable evening ,We went back to Mike and Jackie’s afterwards ,Jackie and I still nattering nine to the dozen in the kitchen whist the men watched some football ,I think ! Sadly at half past twelve it was time to come home, Mike and Jackie Fran and Craig flew out to New York yesterday, Fran and Craig’s birthday treat, to their Dad, Craig’s Grandparents have a home there, so they plan to see the sights .I need to digress here, as most who live in Britain know, and I am reluctant to share this with our friends across the pond, thus letting them know there are some dicks running our country! H.M.R.C. (that’s short for Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs) has lost? Two discs with the details of two and a half million peoples information on them, people who are on child benefit, their tax and insurance details bank sort codes etc, and whilst they are assuring the people they don’t have any indication that the discs have fallen into the wrong hands, the relevant departments are in big trouble and the government are somewhat ,erm ,shall I say embarrassed !!! With great big dollops of egg on their faces.
So back to the story ,Michael is always teasing people .So….in with his Birthday card ,We put two empty CDs on which I had written ,H.M.R.C….” highly confidential “,see his face he roared with laughter ,
There is however a sting in this tale, my daughter received a letter, informing her that they were profoundly sorry, but she is amongst the people whose details are on the misplaced discs, and although there is no reason for alarm, as any moneys she might lose!! Would be re reimbursed, it went on at great length to reassure and justify, but that is the jist of it, Huh!!!
And now to finish ….I wentup to the town this morning, only to find Lavender Blue have changed the window again, so I took more piccys, So on that happy note, With Love from
Thankyou Donna for my siggy today ,Donna called this one stepping out !Stepping out !
