Welcome To Edwina’s Episodes: Making the mundane fun!

I love turning the ordinary into the extraordinary!

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; even a bit of raunchiness,  which you can find on the menu under  ‘Tidbit Tuesday.’

Life can be so humdrum and boring 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 falling 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 be 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 have recently published a collection of my poems in a book ‘Rhymes of the Times’  which should you wish to, you can purchase here

  1. This was such a great poem 🙂 This is the first time I heard you and must say, it’s an amazing narrative!

    1. Thank you Prajakta, I am glad you enjoyed it 🙂

  2. I loved the poem and your accent just makes it perfect! <3

  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

    1. THat’s ok TJ. I am just about to re-write it as my blog went a bit haywire and I had to reset the whole thing back to 6th April!

  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. TThanks Debby It is normally a good way to exorcise the pain I have found 🙂

  5. Judy, I have been searching all over your blog for a “follow” button and can’t find one. Can you enlighten me?

    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)!!

  6. 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. Welcome Kinglsey and thank you so much for visiting 🙂

  9. Congrats on the new site, Judy! I’m looking forward to following you here.

    1. Thanks Rob. You are always welcome 🙂

  10. 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 🙂

  11. 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. Hi Krista. Thank you so much, that is lovely of you.
      Here is the link for paperback
      I found it on Amazon here : http://www.amazon.com/Rhymes-Times-lighthearted-through-rhyme/dp/1530270634/
      any problems, just give me a shout. 🙂

      1. Hi, your link took me to Amazon.com, no good for the UK. Then I had the bright idea of amending the link in the browser bar to http://www.amazon.co.uk/Rhymes-Times-lighthearted-through-rhyme/dp/1530270634/ and yipeee it worked.

        However, if I go to amazon.co.uk and look it up, only the ebook comes up. You might like to investigate. Meanwhile, I shall place an order. X

        1. Oh, I will have to check those links out Yvonne. Thanks for telling me, I am looking into it. I hope your friend enjoys the book 🙂

  12. Hi Judy, I have nominated you for the sisterhood of the world blogging award. If you take part in these here is the link:

    If you do not take part in these then will you pass it along to a worthy blogger? Thanks! Congrats!

    1. Thank you so much Annette for thinking of me, I am really humbled. 🙂

  13. Hi Everyone,
    Just stopping by. Colleen is my friend. Best wishes to all of you in all of your endeavors. Yes, I agree laughter is a great thing to do and it’s contagious. 🙂

    1. Hi Deanie. Thanks so much for popping in, it is lovely to see you. you have wonderful taste in best friends, Colleen is lovely 🙂

  14. You both sound like, and look like a very fun person to know! Laughter is so therapeutic–great for treating hypochondria (I know!).

    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!!

        1. Thanks Azul. It is lovely to meet you too 🙂

  15. 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 🙂

  16. 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. Hello and welcome Oneta. Thank you for the follow. I am sure we will both enjoy the journey 🙂

  17. Just dropping by to wish you a happy new year!

    1. Thank you Jacob, that is really nice of you. A very Happy New Year to you too 🙂

  18. Judy, you were the #2 most prolific commenter on my blog this year! Thank you so much for the support!!

    1. It is my pleasure Melinda. Thank you so much too for yours 🙂

        1. Well that is a good job as I love talking to you too!! ?

          1. We are the founding members of the Judy/Melinda Mutual Admiration Society! Or J/MAS.

          2. We are indeed! That has a good ring to it!

  19. Felt like I had Christmas with you.

  20. We’re all trying new things… I’m off in a new site now http://www.authortranslatorolga.com
    Early days. Be well!

    1. Love the new site. Looking good Olga 🙂

    1. Thanks Ritu.. A spruce up (even if it started unintentionally) for Christmas! 🙂

      1. Well it is festively red!!!!

        1. HA HA! Yes you are right there ?

  21. Ahh! Not my eyes! I wasn’t sure that I was seeing clearly ‘cos something looked different. You’ve been playing with the themes Judy 🙂 Not a bad makeover at all.

    1. Thank you, yes, it started off by accident, but I ended up changing anyway 🙂

      1. I like it. Gives it a fresh coat of painting 🙂

        1. Thank you, it gives it a little boost 🙂

    1. Yes, I was playing around with themes last night and changed it thinking it was just a demo but it wasn’t! I have decided now to change it to this one anyway 🙂

      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!

        1. Yes that was what I did, and I lost my pictures from the posts as well! It has taken me all day on and off to sort it out. Glad you like it 🙂

          1. OMG! That sounds even worse than what I did! This computer stuff sometimes can drive you insane!
            Yes, Judy, I like it 😀

          2. It did make me very cross!
            It is all ok again now and I have a fresh new theme to brighten up my blog 🙂

          3. A brand new start for the coming new year… it was meant to be 😉

          4. Yes, you are right. 🙂

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