Greys over Sands


This week I slept with my ex husband.

No - don’t be daft!
I was on his couch covered with 2 coats and he was in his bed recovering from a hernia op.

Why the jaaaaz fan lives here now is a mystery. It’s the place where your gran goes to visit her grandad. The local shop is well stocked with cards for your 100th birthday and there’s no shortage of am dram, tea shoppes and tea dances.

But, it's a lovely place and the railway station is stunning.
The eccentric bloke on the corner isn't satisfied with gnomes in his garden.
Rob owns a lovely 3 bed house in Grange over Sands, but after his drinking crisis he did the decent thing and moved out.
He now lives in an attic flat. You climb up the fire escape open the door and expect to see Adrian Edmonson and Neil the hippy.

The bathroom is a biology project.

We had luch at the Hazlemere café. It will soon be famous according to this notice.

If you watch BBC2 tonight please tell me about it as I’m off into Manchester this evening to find some excitement.

I've been to Grange over Sands, but it was more like Grange over grass!

And I also watch Great British Menu (although it usually provokes homocidal tendencies - Jennie Bond is just so wrong).

So I get two points.

Kaz, does this mean you've driven two blokes to drink? Or was it Jazz 'n Folk?

It is a grassy beach, at Grange, isn't it?

And Jennie Bond is completely rubbish but I had no idea she was gay.

View:
Well I don't suppose Heather Mills is likely to do it.

I really went for some sea air.

Anx:
Point 1: Yes - the grass is spreading daily. Even with my bins I couldn't get near enough to the shore to see the waders.

Point 2: Jennie was good in the jungle - I see Murph's trying to start a rumour.

Murph:
I know that dog is man's best friend - but I thought that included women as well.

Obviously not.

Perhaps I did drive them both to drink .... runs off to make appointment with shrink.

You may have dropped them off at the pub once or twice, that was all Kaz. I thought that Katy was a bitch on the Apprentice last week - she always has a glass in her hand but said the Lancashire bloke only had two friends .."Mr Pinot and Mr Grigio".

It was the "homocidal tendencies" that Anx mentioned in connection with Jennie B. (in case there are any lawyers reading this).

Anyway, stay away from the shrink. You're short enough!.

*slinks off to start digging large hole*

Tee Hee - Kev prefers Ms Stella and Mrs Artois.

Have you ever heard of Canicidal tendencies? You may need that hole very soon!

This is all above me! I'm off to the "Bide a wee" rest home.

I should know better than to blog-read before I've had my morning coffee.

I misread "I was on his couch covered with 2 coats" as "I was on his couch covered with 2 goats."

Excuse me but it's still quite early here on the west coast of Canada.

All that wit aside (and very good it is too), what were you doing ex-husband sitting? In a flat with that kind of biology project going on?

Have you managed to catalogue any new species?

Blogger KAZ said...

Dave:
Bide a wee moment and I'll join you.

As long as I can have my own wine cooler.

mj:
Are two goats better than one goat?

Either way it beats an ex husband after a hernia op.

Roses:
Good question.
I think the grotty flat and bath could be a bid for sypathy. You didn't see the sofa he rescued from the local tip.

New species?

I don't do biology - but, if there's a next time I'll take some sulphuric acid to pour in that bath.

The picture of that garden frightens me. I hope there aren't any overlooking neighbours who have to see that when they get up in the morning.

Is the Queen Mother stocked up with bottles of gin by the bench?

Blogger KAZ said...

Tony:
Best City in UK and getting better all the time.

Apparently the cafe wasn't on the bloody programme anyway.

Betty:
And you missed Compo and Norah Batty round the corner.

Don't know about the gin - but the Queen's handbag was real.

You're his ex-wife! get cleaning that bathroom woman!

G.O.S! The last hole that God made! Did you count the number of fingers that the local have?

Nora:
It's OK - the Queen Mum said she'd do it.

Liits:
I can't understand why you prefer Greece to Grange.
Enjoy it!

I love Grange Over Sands. Had some very nice walks there. Isn't it where all the old characters in Coronation Street retire to?
