A Bit of a Ramble ......

Bizarre some of the keyword people put in that lead them to my blog.

Today so far it's been 'how to make lizards out of fudge' and 'people who eat fuller earth'!

I wonder if they stop for a while when they find me ...............

I had a text last night.  The person who sent it obviously had auto correct switched on  didn't check the text before they hit send. 12.36am I get a text saying 'I want to put cockles all over you'. Now I'm thinking, did they mean to say that and do I really look like the hull of a beat up old boat?...........

I'm still pondering my reply, any thoughts?

I was also told to 'go careful - old birds with dodgy knees shouldn't go climbing on rocks' when I told a 'friend' I was fossil hunting at Lyme on Sunday.  Hmmm, I sometimes wonder if I should find some new friends ;)

For the record, I broke my knee behaving in an outrageous manner whilst totally bladdered, nothing to do with advancing years at all!

I get quite a lot of texts, some thanks to O2 Lots of times!!  The other day my phone started re-sending messages I'd sent and deleting texts I wanted to save too.  A software update was the answer I was told but it still hasn't sorted the multiple text issue Guess I'll learn to live with it.

I had a text the other night saying 'naughty me', still trying to work out if it was a statement or a request, whatever happened to punctuation?  I can't DO text speak either although the odd lol does creep in now and then.

Feeling in a bit of a rambling mood, it's been a glorious day in Somerset, I went for a bike ride, watched a heron dive from the top of a pine into a lake to catch a fish and nearly bought a huge hammock that I have nowhere to put just because it was a beautiful deep blue colour.

I'm now going to lure the dog into the garden to turn the hose on him. The word bath sends him wide eyed and trembling under the table which is odd as he loves the water and swimming, hosing him down seems a little less traumatic for all of us.

And tonight the plan is to be in bed and asleep BEFORE 4:30 am!

I am struggling to think what would auto-correct to 'cockles' but think I might be tempted to respond with something like 'Ooo baby, now there's an offer I can't refuse!'or something similar....

As for the hammock - I was only saying to S the other day that we should get a really big hammock to put in the back garden and then we could just sleep outdoors the whole time - and blue is my favourite colour!!

After not managing to get to sleep until some ridiculous hour in the small hours of this morning, I too am hoping for a few more hours tonight because I am complete jetlag basket case!

the phrase ' put cockles all over me' doesn't make me think of a boat.....more like an adult rendezvous suggestion.

Scared of what I might start if I do that Lou! I would love a hammock, this one was huge with thick rope and a deep blue colour (also MY fav:). Wishing you lots of lovely zzz xx

It does indeed Todd, I don't know what affect it was meant to have but Im pretty sure it wasn't meant to make me snort coffee through my nose

Alex said...

do you know what type of phone this person uses ... ie a smartphone where you press keys like a keyboard or one where press the numbers to get the letters ...

want to break this cockles code

I am assuming you know the sender of the text message and it wasn't just a random one!

Sarah Mac said...

It was an iphone Alex, Let me know if you work it out, I'm actualy a little afraid to ask!

I do know them RP, I've had a couple of text before which have similarly not been checked first but I've been be to work them out. This one's got me stumped though and as I think Todd might possibly be right I don't think I want to know the answer :)

Alex said...

lol, keep an open mind ... you might like it

Sarah Mac said...

Haha, go with the flow Alex?? maybe I should :)

I'm So Fancy said...

Frankly, I could use some crockling...

I'm So Fancy said...

I mean cockling...

Sarah Mac said...

Haha Fancy, you DO make me laugh :) I wouldnt say no to a good crockle either, it's just a question of finding the right crockling partner xx

Sarah Mac said...

Lol, and now you've got ME doing it too! I meant cockle.

I love it when the auto correct kicks in with something funny. There was an email kicking around a while back with iphone auto correct mistakes. I remember laughing so hard at it that I wee'd - I was 8 month preggers at the time so that is my excuse!

I had bronchitis towards the end of my last pregnancy Claire (say no more!!;). Ive had a couple more texts from him since and I'm starting to think they may be worthy of a post of their own.
