facebook, ebay and polyester knickers

I am sat here, having finally managed to get Cath set up on wordpress, watching her type her “about me” blog. The TV is off. The room is quiet. Deep concentration ensues, followed by the odd giggle and a look in my direction. “What?!” I ask. “Is it OK to talk about farmville on Facebook, items on Ebay and debate the number of “p’s” in polyester knickers?!”

“Yes hun,” I answer. “You can talk about anything you want.”

Cue another giggle.

She is now set up, still in her nest, cheeping away as she learns her way around the site. She is guaranteed to make you smile on a not-quite-so-guaranteed daily basis! (for being online, I mean – NOT because she is half Sicilian and therefore it is compulsory for her to keep a straight face most of the time!)

Cath would like everyone to realize that she has a very Victorian style of writing (long sentences, and long explanations for points which could be paraphrased). She does however, draw the line in painting her rooms dark red and mourning for more than five years!

SO I have introduced Catherine: cathmoran73 to the wonderful world of wordpress. I am sure she will receive as warm a welcome as I did 🙂


Searching all lost words, repeat, all lost words. Please gather, in an orderly manner, at wordpress.

That’s it! My brain is officially too full of ideas, words, inspiration and general waffle for it all to be contained.

Things are starting to spill over! All too often I get excited about new ideas: poems, stories, a new phrase, a new alternative version of well known songs. I recount funny stories about people (nowt stranger than folk!) I have observed or phrases I have overheard. I babble incoherently about it for a while and then it is gone. Lost in the atmosphere along with all the other “what was that I said earlier? You know, that thing about that wotsit!?”

My head is so full that not only do words get lost, but the remaining ones get confused. They bump into each other, merging into new words and pretending they are official Oxford Dictionary inhabitants! (I am very good at unintentional spoonerisms!)

So here I am. Calling all words to gather, in an orderly manner, in wordpress. Here, I can write my musings about observations. I can write my poems and blog day to day amusements.

Through this outlet, dear reader, I hope that you will be able to learn a little about me: The Margin Mother (I will explain this as time goes on), and how I work (or don’t – depending entirely on what my body allows for that day – again, more on this as time goes on!)

And, if any of you should bump into my merged words, do separate them and return them to me. If any of you should find my lost words, I would be grateful for their return.

Happy reading 🙂
