And the Award for Greatest Menopausal Moment of "Turn-About-is-Fair-Play" Goes To....

The following was a comment left on one of my posts. I hope Kat doesn't mind me sharing this with the world on the front page of my blog.

Oh,I forgot to say that when my mum was menopausal she had HRT patches and one of them got stuck to my dads back somehow when they were in bed(!!!***!!??@@**)he wore it all day at work and was as daft as a brush for days when we finally discovered it and took it off.My mum says it was the highlight of her menopause !!!

I seriously suspect that just the thought of this moment will sustain me through many a tough time in the future. This has to rank in the top 5 funniest things I've ever, ever heard. Heck, it may be number 1. Way. Too. Funny.
If you haven't visited Kat's blog yet, please do. She writes about her days in a most charming way. (Although I will admit that just thinking of doing all that she manages to do in one single day often leaves me drained and exhausted! lol) She's frightfully organized, ever so efficient and is raising perfectly adorable children. And I still like her! And Kat, if you're reading this, please except my apologies for posting this without your express permission, but I simply could not help myself. Thank your mom for sharing this story with you! I know your father passed over last year, but I love that he and your mom were able to laugh about this happening to them! It speaks volumes about what great personalities raised you!


  1. Oh how I loved this...I laughed out loud...I saw it yesterday and journeyed through her wonderful blog as well!

    Just thinking about this has got to make us laugh right?


  2. I read that on your comments and look twice to make sure I read it right, It was funny!

  3. Maybe menopause explains why your Aunt Sandi cunfused us all about your birthday!
    I am easily lead =D

  4. Hello! I just found your blog linked off from Tammy,s at my gentle retreat. I laughed so hard reading the menopause post you had. I can relate to everyone of the hings on the list, I,am just now going through these things at 47 so it is comforting to see I have company in this department. I also have in common with you my love for Christmas. I love to decorate as soon as possible, I would start right now if it were up to me but hubby makes me wait untill Thanksgiving day! I,am realy enjoying your blog. Tammys is so much fun too, I always walk away from stopping into see her with a huge smile on my face! Have a great day! sherry


Thank you for your comment. I love to hear what you have to say!
