g'day from me!!! heehee, i got beaten to the post today! i was in fact, just about to get the thread started, scrolled down, saw that fluff had already posted, so.....
it's friday afternoon now, 15:56hrs. so, my day is fast coming to a close.
but..... happy friday everyone! :flowersfo
this is what i've done on this magnificent spring friday in november: ....
woke at 0500
devoured a bowl of cereal & juice
drove our son to airport with dh. son's gone to sydney for the weekend. plane left at 0720.
prior to leaving airport, i needed to go to the toilet. so, there i am, seated in the cubicle, next thing there's voices and movement outside. a voice yells out; "ok everyone, you need to leave the toilets, immediately! evacuate the ladies room please. please make haste now".
then there was knocking on the doors, with the call to exit the toilets immediately. i heard people talking, people obviously moving expediently. then i heard laughter. by now i was both, concerned, confused (as it didn't quite 'gel' with me as a real evacuation. too many 'essentials' missing in the wording etc). and,
i was really
irritated, interrupted! and getting somewhat p***** off!:angryfire
since i was in no
position to move anywhere right at that moment,
and came to the conclusion it wasn't a real evacuation, but probably some lunatics
playing pranks, i called out; " it is an indictable offense to create false alarm!"
more yelling to evacuate, knocking on, now my,
again, i called out; " if you don't cease this nonsense now, i'll have you arrested for being a public nuisance and creating a false alarm"
i then heard whispers and hushed laughter.
then.. silence. ah! i thought, idiots have left and i can 'finish' in peace.
that done, i proceeded to open the cubicle door...........
standing there, with the biggest,
most mischevious grin on her face, was one of my former colleagues and friend!
i mean, this woman is a charge nurse
in ot in one of our major hospitals!!
:chuckle initially, i was ready to sock it to this lunatic and was ready as i opened the door for whatever was outside the cubicle! on recognising her and overcoming the sheer shock of seeing her there and realising i'd been 'had!' i said; "you b****! i'll kill you! you mad woman! you lunatic!"
i almost died laughing! i laughed so
hard that i had tears rolling down my face!
there were about two/three other women, unknown to either of us, joining in the prank and having a good laugh! :chuckle
all at my expense!!!!!
:imbar :chuckle what could i do???!!! i just near collapsed in hysterics. it was one of the funniest things i've been caught out in.
how did it come about? ......
my friend, s, had run into my dh waiting in the airport for me. she was there to see her dd off on holiday, was with her dh and dd's, b/f. asked where's grace?
dh told her, and being the fun loving, madcap, rascal that she is, she decided to have some fun!!!!
lucky for her, others in the ladies toilets today, also had a sense of humour and thought it was hilarious too!
from the airport we drove to the beach. walked along the beach for an hour. just beautiful! mild spring morning, some cloud cover which cooled the intermittent sunshine. people were joyous and friendly. the dogs were happy, well behaved and friendly as they joined their masters/mistresses in play. everyone was alive, peaceful and warmly greeting each other. all of us strangers on the shore. beautiful!
after the walk; we took a table at the beachside cafe, ordered fruit salad, toast, and latte's for two. delicious, fresh food. magnificent birds and their song in the trees surrounding us. a calm and soothing ocean lapping the shore. other 'early birds' also enjoying their breakfast and chatter. pure bliss!
we felt so blessed and privileged. so safe. so peaceful.
after breakfast; it was into the city to the markets............
a world all of it's own, and simply fabulous!
fruit and vegetables, fresh
bread. treated ourselves to some chocolate delights, yum! relaxed over a cold, ice filled, apple and peach drink in a tall glass, while we watched our fellow homo-sapiens go about their business.
then it was time to come home.
do you get the impression i've had as close to perfect day??!!!
hope also that, your friday
is happy, peaceful and fulfilling!
sending best wishes to all! :flowersfo
