Mastercard Moments

Moment 1:

My family are sitting round the garden table and my Mum decides it's time to have a smoke. With barely a break in what he is doing, my five-year-old nephew pipes up: "Grandma, how many cigarettes do you have to smoke before you die?"

Priceless.  Shame it hasn't stopped her...

Moment 2:

My Dad is browsing the web for anniversary ideas and gets distracted by a video of large women having a makeover.  Cue my Mum walking in to see what he is doing...

Mum: "Why are you looking at fat birds having a make-over?"
Dad: "I'm looking for something for you"

Even after 40 years of marriage, he still hasn't learned!!!!

Moment 3:

Actually, this is still pretty fresh as it is the reason I am currently writing blog posts at 2am!

After deciding to study late in order to try and get a little ahead, I finally left the Uni buildings at some point after 11pm.  As expected, the park and ride buses were no longer running, so I decided to walk to the car park only to find it all locked up, with my little car sitting slap bang in the middle and no means to get in or out!

Unfortunately, the Uni is over 15 miles away from where I live, so returning home is out of the question, taxis are too expensive for that distance, the local hotel has no rooms available and the final bus was just before 11pm.

Thankfully, the Learning Resource Centre is open 24 hours.  Unfortunately, I have 21 pence in change, which won't get me anything to eat or drink all night until the shop opens, so I am anticipating being the unfreshest Fresher on campus first thing tomorrow!!

Moment 4:

This one is better to see - makes me grin every time I watch it!
