Schoolchildren today know nothing!

As usual, I have no idea if any of these are real, but I have my suspicions! They are supposedly genuine pieces of information, as written by children at school.

Chaya Devoira's hearing

a hearing aid (not as pink as the one Chaya Devoira has though)Chaya Devoira had a hearing test today. As our avid reader will doubtless remember, she had a moderate hearing loss in both ears, and was given hearing aids. She coped very well with these B"H, and showed an immediately improved awareness of what was going on around her.

She had another hearing test about five weeks ago, and came home with only one hearing aid. Her hearing had improved in her left ear to the point where she didn't need the aid, and was better in her right ear, although not enough to abandon it yet. We were told that this might be because it was the end of the summer, when all the flu bugs had died, and too early for the winter ones to kick in. We had to take her back in a month to see how she was coping with the cold wet weather.

Well, today was the day, and I'm delighted to report that she came home without any hearing aids! Apparently her hearing has improved to the point that she doesn't need them at all, even though she has a cold, and it's the winter. What's even better is that they don't want to see her again until March, instead of the standard one month that we were expecting.

Well done Chaya Devoira!

Yorkshiremen jokes

Being a true born and bred Yorkshireman, I can testify to the veracity of the following true stories (ahem).

If you don't know the Yorkshire accent, you probably won't find these very funny. Mind you, even if you do know the accent you might not find them funny!

True story from Yorkshire #1

A Yorkshire man takes his cat to the vet.

Yorkshireman: "Eyup, lad, I need to talk to thee about me cat."
Vet: "Is it a tom?"
Yorkshireman: "Nay, I've browt it wi' me."

True story from Yorkshire #2

A Yorkshireman's dog dies and as it was a favourite pet he decides to have a gold statue made by a jeweller to remember the dog by.
Yorkshireman: "Can tha mek us a gold statue of me dead dog?"
Jeweller: "Do you want it 18 carat?"
Yorkshireman: "No I want it chewin' a bone, yer daft bat!"

True story from Yorkshire #3

A Yorkshireman's wife dies and the widower decides that her headstone should have the words "Here lies Adele, she wor' a grand lass" engraved on it.

He calls the stone mason, who assures him that the headstone will be ready a few days after the funeral. True to his word the stone mason calls the widower to say that the headstone is ready and would he like to come and have a look.

When the widower gets there he takes one look at the stone to see that it's been engraved "Here lies Adele, she wor' a grand lass"

The Yorkshireman shouts "Yer a gormeless tatie, you've left the 'e' out!"

The stone mason apologises and assures the poor widower that it will be rectified the following morning.

Next day comes and the widower returns to the stone mason - "There you go sir, I've put the 'e' on the stone for you..."

The widower looks at the stone and then reads out aloud - "Here lies Adel, eeh she wor' a grand lass"

Blog finally working again!

I have been having all sorts of problems with my blog recently. I upgraded my server to a new version of Windows, and the blog platform that I use wouldn't allow me to post :(

I think I may have finally sorted it out, and so may be able to bore you once again with irrelevant comments and pictures of my children! If you find this thought too stomach-churning to bear (and I don't blame you), you may want to switch your computer off right now.

Don't say I didn't warn you!
