What’s in your Rose’s Jar? .. Oh yes not just any ol’ jar ! . This quaint moulded jar has a significant memory for me as a child.
I remember all those years ago my Dad giving a Roses Jar with tadpoles in it. Yes it’s stuck with me that one. One of only things I can remember of my dad’s times in my life, apart from him waiting outside our house in Ainsdale in his Hillman Hunter car.
.Sometimes my Dad was refused access to spend time with us or even at Christmas or birthdays my Mum would send our presents back to my dad even after we’d opened them .. fond memories hey !
My dad with his many types of especially the Hillman Hunter car.
I remember the speedometer being a long strip with a needle type gauge. He always seemed to have his Head under the bonnet of this particular car fixing things . I can always remember the thermostat and radiators problems. My dad has always been a ‘do it yourself ‘ type of guy. I’m not that sort of person, although when I reach them heights it’s pleasing . My brother Roger seems to fallen in my Dads footsteps on this one . Roger has created some amazing work , with fitting a fabulous new bathroom to out late mums home. 🌿My talents run with more a flare to them, rather than every day fixing of things. There a few things I can do like working with wood or plants but I prefer to get the professionals in to do indoor tasks or ask a friend 🤣.
My Dad was a taxi driver for “Yellow Tops “ for many years. When my Dad left my Mum back when the wee age of 5 , he lived in a bedsit in Park Road , Southport. I remember my Sunday afternoons there. Usually I’d be sat in the back of his Pale blue Bedford Beagle or the Hillman Hunter or Datsun Cherry ( what a car that was💙) with my brother and sister drinking a small bottle of R Whites lemonade through a straw 🌟. Nothing quite like that taste. I remember it so well spending time in a back of a car in a pub car park, Not allowed to leave the car. it generally was the Hesketh Arms in Churchtown. Ha hah .. memories hey! and all from a trigger point of a glass jar. Not any ol’ glass jar though! A empty Rose’s Marmalade one or a full one ! 👍🌟.
These days I keep my empty roses jars and store little treasures in them, like paper clips, loose change or even sugar my wife decided to use a jar for. 😄
I might have to leave you here as I have to get ready for work. Ahh.. just when I’m in the flow too 🤣.
See you later . Make your time today a glorious one xx
🌟❇️👍. Time 9:15 am Saturday 22nd August 2020.
Yippee I’m back 😄😂. The time now is 5:21 pm and I’m contemplating ordering a curry from the Tarleton Tandoori but I’m sick of driving , I’d prefer to just chill.
Today has been great . Visiting one job inquiry this morning on removing a load of brambles from a piece of land the customer is buying.
After this I visited a rather nice garden in Churchtown where by I added some new pond plants to their existing pond. Just my kinda work. I love it . I’m afraid the photo hasn’t turned out right for some reason.But I’ll try and show it .
Sorry I did say. It’s on its side some some strange moment. Plus my contender for flower of the day and garden too!
Ahh they where really great people too. Very pleasant experience all in all.
Hope you’ve had a special day and brought a little goodness to your life as well to someone else’s. Have you any stories you can tell me or my friends here 😁🌟🤣. Don’t be SHY😜. .The Stage is yours !🤗🙏🏻🌟😄.
I’ve got a story to tell in the near future about my Great Aunts , Oow I cannot wait. 👍🌟.
So my Fair people keep bringing Sparkles to your lives 🌟🌟🌟😘.
Its absolutely pouring down outside , it’s gone really wintery like.. hmm, go away rain !! 🤣.
Looks like I had the best of the day whilst working on my pond in Churchtown 💙🐟 .
Leaving you with some country vibes from my country guy Jason Aldean – with his album Old boots , new dirt. Soothing the way through the rest of the day.
I’m not going yet 🤣. Just telling you a snippet of information about my back garden. I’m thinking of removing a tree or two to make space for storage and my blue cedar is looking like it’s gonna have to give way to new improvements . I just don’t want it to look like shed city 🤣🤣🤣.
What ever that goes there it’s gonna have to look pretty 💖.
It does tend to drop needles all year round , this is something that annoys Susan and anyone with OCD might get upset, I’m not going to mention anyone’s names !😄🤣🌟.Haha I love you really! . 😘🤗. . So it’s on borrowed Tyne ( time )🤣 I think!🤣.
I hope I brought you a little joy today 🌟😘🥰.
Lots of love
ps, Talking before about my Dads skills of DIY . I think he thinks he’s still a young man. Today I visited him and he’s fallen through the bathroom floor with his legs dangling through into the kitchen.
He forgot he had the floorboards up because he was trying to fix some pipe work.
This man , my Dad doesn’t like getting the pro’s in. He’s of the old generation we’re by they did things themselves. This time he needs to get someone in. Gee whiz he’s hurt his hand and it could of been worse. He’s a very lucky man. We spoke with his neighbour and she’s going to ask her son in law to to help out. He’s a builder. Thank goodness, oh there he or she is again Goodness me !🤣😄🌟. 8pm Saturday 22nd August.
