About Me

I love words… there is so much we can do with them; make them rhyme, inspire people with them, make others laugh or cry; communicate with people on so many levels…

I enjoy reflecting on different situations I have found myself in, or have observed,  and writing about them. I also like writing about random silly things, or anything that I find amusing, wacky or downright ridiculous. I then love to share them so that I can bring some laughs to your day too. Humour is what gets me through the day, and I think we all need a little laughter in our lives.

70s Night Disco for my sister’s 50th!

I  did decide to write this anonymously as I am rather shy, so I used my middle name of Edwina for the name of this blog,  (Edwina was the name of one of my Mum’s mad aunties…it makes more sense now I bet)!  however, my actual name is Judy, so take your pick!

I have a husband (in his 50’s and well on the way to becoming a Grumpy Old Git, hence the nickname Mr Grump), a 13-year-old daughter (she has Asperger’s, is extremely bright, and feisty, but who also has inherited my clumsy gene which is why I decided to refer to her as Miss Hap, bless her), and a very cute Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Roxy.

I thought it would be fun to share snippets my life as an average, everyday, working woman, who tries to see the funny side of things, as I barge through each day, trying to bring a bit of order to the chaos, as so many of us do.I feel that a little bit of humour goes a long way in life, and turning my embarrassing, socially awkward, or silly moments into a few shared words might make someone smile. or if I am really lucky, roar with laughter.

Come and join me in my quest for the quirky, my look at the ludicrous, and my words about wackiness. Let’s laugh at life together. 

Thank you for stopping by 🙂

I love hearing from people, so if you fancy dropping me a line then please feel free.

  1. I’m glad you visited my blog, Judy. Now I can follow you! We have a twenty year old grandson with Asperbergers. It has been an interesting journey for our family. He is away from home, going to college, and doing well!

  39. Hi Edwina,
    I am crazy and shy too- am always getting into scrapes, ones that would have meant disaster to others but from which I miraculously come out of- I have had many bruises and bumps along the way- reading your about me page, made me think I am reading my own biography.
    Thanks for sharing and I am glad I visited.

    1. Hi Susie. Thanks so much for visiting , and for your comments. It is so lovely knowing there are others out there like me as well! 🙂

      1. I think we must be the only two in the world. Never heard of anyone else having had to face these hazards.

        1. Probably no-one else talks about it.

  40. Thanks for stopping by on my blog earlier. 🙂 I guess you found it through OM. I’ll follow your blog now, and I do hope that you will follow mine back. 🙂

  41. Hi Edwina. I love words too 🙂 Pls stop by my blog. I write letters to my son Seamus. Warmest regards, Melanie

    1. Hi. Melanie, Thanks so much for popping in to say hello. Your blog sounds great and I will come over to have a look. 🙂

  42. I love your tagline. I look forward to getting to know you through the course!

    1. Thank you Brittney, you too 🙂

  43. Hello Edwina,
    I found your blog through Harsh Reality and I am glad that I did. I am very clumsy and it seems as though the older I get the worst it is lol. I have learn to just laugh it off and accept that it is a part of me. I look forward to your upcoming posts 🙂

    1. Hi JcCee. I have just been over to your blog and liked what i saw there. It seems we pretty similar. I always love it when someone else is as clumsy as I am! 🙂

      1. Thanks so much, Edwina. Yes, it does feel pretty good when someone can relate to clumsy 🙂

  44. Hi! I have nominated you for the Premio Dardos Award. Check out this link for the details – https://anarmchairperfectionist.wordpress.com/2015/02/16/premio-dardos-award-versatile-blogger-award/

    Happy Blogging!

    1. Hi, I would just like to than you so much for nominating me for the Premio Dardos Award. I am honoured and flattered. However, I have already been nominated before for this so won’t be able to accept again. Thanks for thinking of me though.

  45. Hello Edwina! I’ve decided to read and follow 15 interesting and new blogs a day every day for the first month of 2015, and yours is today’s #8! Feel free to come visit me when you can at http://www.thatssojacob.wordpress.com, and follow if you like what you read. Happy new year and happy blogging!

    1. Hi Jacob. Thanks so much for choosing my blog, I am very flattered. Happy blogging to you too.

  46. Hi there 🙂 Good to meet you Edwina!

    1. Hi Steve. Good to meet you too. I have just checked out your blog. You have loads of interesting stuff on there. 🙂

      1. Oh, thank you very much 🙂 the meet and greet thread has really helped!

          1. Feel like I’m finally connecting to a community, you know? I have a self hosted blog, so the connection tools aren’t quite the same, despite the other benefits.

          2. I do know what you mean. I have so far managed to have got a lovely little community, which is really supportive and friendly. Well at least we have managed to connect even if you have a self-hosted site. (you’ll have to excuse my ignorance on some of the technical terms. I am still quite new to blogging and all it;s jargon)!!v

          3. I know what you mean. A community is good 🙂 I’ve been hanging around the fringes of wordpress blogging for a number of years, but have only recently started posting more seriously and spending time on it.

          4. From my limited experience, blogging does seem to be very rewarding. 🙂

          5. It’s actually very similar to other social media outlets so far, but I do prefer that it’s based on being able to post something far more personal. It’s not limited int he same way as other social media outlets and seems to promote a more talkative community if you interact and engage with the right people.

          6. Yes I agree, I seem to have been lucky enough to have engaged with the right people so far. 🙂

  47. Hi. I’ve nominated you for the Premio Dardos Award. Here’s the information. http://wp.me/p54xZT-AI
    You have a wonderful blog!

  48. Wendy of the Rock
