extraordinary, fun, humour

Welcome To Edwina’s Episodes

I love writing about the ordinary stuff that we can all relate to.

I like to take a fun look at the lighter side of life. Anything from discovering under-used ‘Wacky Words’  to anecdotes about family life, little poems or rhymes about anything that takes my fancy.  I love a bit of  raunchiness too,  which you can find on the menu under  ‘Tidbit Tuesday.’

Life can be so humdrum and dull at times, but it depends on how you look at it.  We all have those moments where we have cringed at something stupid we have said, or been mortified at making the kind of entrance that ends up with us falling flat on our faces after tripping over our feet.  There is not a lot we can do about it so why not just laugh it off.

Ok, so there may be occasions when laughter isn’t appropriate (those always seems to be the times when you want to laugh the most), but it might make a good story to laugh about afterwards.

I often find myself in embarrassing situations and my way of dealing with it is to just make fun of it and laugh about it later.  I find that other people have found themselves in similar situations so can often relate to my stories. After all,  life is full of opportunities to make a fool of yourself!



This blog is where I like to share those fun stories with you, and hope that you will share yours with me.

So, if you enjoy amusing anecdotes, rollicking rhymes and silly stories then you are definitely in the right place! I also like to take part in various challenges, which are usually poetry based.

  1. Where have you been all my life? I thought I was the only person who wrote rhyming poetry about whatever fun things there are in life. Are used to go to a poetry group at our nearest Barnes & Noble and I was the only rhyming poem there. And you know what I didn’t care. They were some delightful people in the group who would write comments on copies of my poems and say have a thought they would be great for a children’s book or for a song perhaps. I don’t write much poetry anymore because I found out that I’m a much better creative non Fiction essayist kind a girl with a little memoir thrown in here and there. I look forward to seeing hearing or reading lots more of your joyful creativity.

    1. Hello Lisa and welcome, it is so lovely to meet you. I am glad that you enjoy my rhymes, I know they are not for everyone! The fact that you like writing them as well is even better! I really appreciate your lovely comments and hope that you enjoy my blog 🙂

  2. I just wanted to say thanks for the comment on my blog. I found it in spam, marked it as not spam, but I have no idea what happened to it after that. I wasn’t ignoring you 🙂

      1. What intrigues me is where the comment goes. Okay, I tell Akismet this comment is not spam, they boot it out of spam, but they don’t send it to its rightful place in the comments.

  3. Hi Judy,

    Unfortunately the link you posted for the last week’s haiku challenge doesn’t seem to work! Oh no!!!!! Sorry in advance for not mentioning you this week but if you want to resend the link I will be sure to add it! Hope you are having a great weekend! TJ

  4. I enjoy your stories Judy. And you’re so right, often an uncomfortable situation can become a provision for great laughter after the sting goes away. 🙂

    1. Hi Susan. I have just created on which I hope works. I didn’t realise I hadn’t got one anymore (I occasionally muck about with new themes and I must have done something again)!!

  5. This blog is actually cool. Thanks for the post though. The theme’s changed but it’s still lovely. I love how your choice of words are widely diversified and how you continously maintain the elegance in your writing.


    1. Hi Carolina, Thanks so much for tagging me, I am very flattered.
      I have written a post for this challenge yesterday as I was also tagged by Ritu and Erika. Thanks again 🙂

  6. Hello Edwina, I hate to be a stick in the mud but it is difficult to navigate your blog from my phone or tablet. I use both of these more than I use a laptop. I usually go directly to your blog and I always land on this page. The top navigation links do not show up unless I’m on a laptop or desktop computer. I have missed quite a few of your blog posts as a result. Perhaps if you would add a link to your latest blog posts, it would be easy, at least for me, to keep up with your work? I have quite a few blogs to catch up with and it helps if the process is straightforward. Thank you so much.

    1. Hi, and thanks so much for pointing this out to me. I have gone to my blog on my phone and also looked at it in customise to try and work out how to sort it out.
      When I go use my phone to get to my blog I end up on my home page but there is a black menu bar right across the centre. When I click on that and scroll up it brings up the different sections where and you can click on Latest Blog Posts from there. Can you please let me know if that works for you?

      1. Thanks for your response. I apologise for calling you Edwina, Judy. I really am. I see the menu now that you mention it. Thank you for pointing it out. As you can imagine it’s difficult to intuit that there’s a menu is at the top. I’d normally scroll to the lower end of the page to find arrows. Also I like to browse when I’m just waking up so definitely with unfocused eyes. Thanks for your patience.

        1. It is no problem at all, and please don’t worry about calling me Edwina either. After all, that is the name of my blog . I am so pleased that we got it sorted out 🙂

  7. Hi there. I’ve been looking at your book on Amazon, it looks so good. I’d like to buy a copy as as gift for someone who does not use an e reader. Will you be publishing as a paperback? X

    1. HA! A fellow hypochondriac, we had better not compare ailments or we will be here all day!
      Yes, I find that laughter goes a long way to help soothe life’s little bumps and bruises we pick up along the way. 🙂

      1. Yes, we’d best not do comparison lists! Though, I guess it’s not really hypochondria if the issues are real–like chronic pain…arrgghh! But a good laugh diminishes the level of pain greatly 🙂 It’s SO nice to meet you!!

  8. I just called in to say hello, and to thank you for all the comments you add to my website. I loved the support you always give me, especially when I was choosing a cover for my second book. It’s now published on Amazon and received six 5***** reviews in a couple of weeks, so I’m pleased with that. You’ve done a great job with this new look website. I’ll have to now take a tour. Thanks again!

    1. Hi Carole. Thanks so much for stopping by. I am so thrilled that you have done so well with your new book reviews. It is really nice of you to come and have another look around. You are always welcome 🙂

  9. Judy, you left a like on my Breaking News haiku today so I followed you home. I’m clicking your follow button so I’ll see you more. Hope you will follow me also. We’ll enjoy the journey.

      1. I like it. I like the colors… very female and soft and they are going along well with your profile pic. Last year around that time I was playing around too until I accidentially changed my theme too (I also thought it was only a demo). And then I did not know what my original theme was… oh my God, I got completely nervous because I did not want the one I checked out… lol!

Thank you for popping in, I'd love to know what you think
