Reinstated name

My real name hasn’t been used since Dad’s death. I have a customer who’s an old gent. I knock money off stuff for him cos I know he struggles for money. We get on well & always share a laugh. Yesterday he asked what my proper name was. I told him my name is Jacqueline but no one calls me that. Usually people who call me Jacqueline do so to wind me up & I don’t appreciate it. My old gent asked if he could reinstate my name. So old Peter can call me Jacqueline & when I seen him this morning in a shop he smiled, said Jacqueline, hello. He may not be my Dad but just for a moment I was happy to hear my name.

Lemons & Sugar

I first read this back in 2008. I felt like I had the troubles of the world on my shoulders. I stumbled across it again tonight & I’m feeling exactly the same way. I’m just trying to wade through the quicksand.

1: THERE ARE AT LEAST 2 PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD THAT YOU WOULD DIE FOR.

2: AT LEAST 15 PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD LOVE YOU IN SOME WAY.

3: THE ONLY REASON ANYONE WOULD EVER HATE YOU IS BECAUSE THEY WANT TO BE JUST LIKE YOU.

4: A SMILE FROM YOU CAN BRING HAPPINESS TO ANYONE, EVEN IF THEY DON’T LIKE YOU.

5: EVERY NIGHT, SOMEONE THINKS ABOUT YOU BEFORE THEY GO TO SLEEP.

6: YOU MEAN THE WORLD TO SOMEONE.

7: YOU ARE SPECIAL AND UNIQUE.

8: SOMEONE THAT YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW EXISTS LOVES YOU.

9: WHEN YOU MAKE THE BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER, SOMETHING GOOD COMES FROM IT.

10: WHEN YOU THINK THE WORLD HAS TURNED IT’S BACK ON YOU, TAKE ANOTHER LOOK.

11: ALWAYS REMEMBER THE COMPLIMENTS YOU RECEIVED. FORGET ABOUT THE RUDE REMARKS.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER. . . WHEN LIFE HANDS YOU LEMONS, ASK FOR SUGAR AND CALL ME!

GOOD FRIENDS ARE LIKE STARS. YOU DON’T ALWAYS SEE THEM, BUT YOU KNOW THEY ARE ALWAYS THERE.

WHENEVER GOD CLOSES ONE DOOR HE ALWAYS OPENS ANOTHER, EVEN THOUGH SOMETIMES IT’S HELL IN THE HALLWAY!

I WOULD RATHER HAVE ONE ROSE AND A KIND WORD FROM A FRIEND WHILE I’M HERE, THAN A WHOLE TRUCKLOAD WHEN I’M GONE.

HAPPINESS KEEPS YOU SWEET
TRIALS KEEP YOU STRONG
SORROWS KEEP YOU HUMAN
LIFE KEEPS YOU HUMBLE
SUCCESS KEEPS YOU GLOWING
BUT ONLY GOD KEEP YOU GOING..

Give me strength

I’m rubbish at texting. All those abbreviation’s do my nut in. Ty for thank you. O I suppose it saves so much time & dosh I guess thumbing 2 letters instead of 8. A lol here or a lmfao, the list is never ending. Its a language my kids have taught me but to be honest ( tbh) I really am old school. I like to type whole words not abbreviation’s. Emoticons were cool when we had Windows messenger. I remember I had a dancing emoticon of a guy dressed only in bondage stuff. He made me laugh. Now we have happy smiles, winks, sad faces, loves hearts. The list goes on & bloody on. Then we have the x that we send to everyone. I once sent xxx to one of my kids teachers. I under kiss the people I do care about & heart, smile, wink & xxxxx people I can’t be arsed with. Its pointless & annoying. Jeez is it maybe because I’m old. Fk that’s a thought.

When I got an abbreviated text tonight with all the vowels dropped & silly smiley’s I decided to make a stand. I refused to engage my brain & work it out. I sent back a short text saying I couldn’t understand & if it was important send me an email. I didn’t x I used a full stop. Yep, I dared to use punctuation! I tried to check my emails but my phone won’t sign me into hotmail. Its a cruel world but I figure if it was important my eldest child would come upstairs & tell me what the hell his text said. Climbing 16 stairs must be so tiring when your 22. Time for bed so ttfn xx
or as I normally type night world.
