    I had the carpest day ever yesterday one of the springs went on my car, someone went into the back of my youngest sons car, then to add insult to injury we went shopping to Asda and there wasn't a slice of bread or a drop of milk in sight on the shelves.

    I had to buy red wine and chocolate muffins

    Things can only get better onwards and upwards

    Well done on the Joe mug

    I stumbled across the following on FB today and thought it might give you a giggle

    FIFTY SHADES OF GREY BY PAM AYRES
    The missus bought a Paperback, down Shepton Mallet way,
    I had a look inside her bag;...T'was "Fifty Shades of Grey".
    Well I just left her to it, and at ten I went to bed.
    An hour later she appeared; the sight filled me with dread.
    In her left hand she held a rope; and in her right a whip!
    She threw them down upon the floor, and then began to strip.
    Well fifty years or so ago; I might have had a peek;
    But Mabel hasn't weathered well; she's eighty four next week!!
    Watching Mabel bump and grind; could not have been much grimmer.
    And things then went from bad to worse; she toppled off her Zimmer!
    She struggled back upon her feet; a couple minutes later;
    She put her teeth back in and said "I am a dominator!!"
    Now if you knew our Mabel, you'd see just why I spluttered,
    I'd spent two months in traction for the last complaint I'd uttered.
    She stood there nude and naked bent forward just a bit
    I went to hold her, sensual like and stood on her left tit!
    Mabel screamed, her teeth shot out; My God what had I done!
    She moaned and groaned then shouted out: "Step on the other one!!"
    Well readers, I can tell no more; of what occurred that day.
    Suffice to say my jet black hair, turned fifty shades of grey!!
    I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints.
