    Tell us your's mine, it just happened today!

    I have been pretty sick for the past 6 days, flu/cold whatever...upper respiratory, excessive phlegm, clogged ears nose and lung congestion and brain fog ...

    Anyway, I woke up around 8 this morning, way past my usual wake up time, except for this past week and got myself ready to go to work. Spent  half an hour deicing my car windows and brushing off the snow. Get to my job for a regular Monday, but the place is locked up. So I go back to my car to call someone, to leave a message. My client says, its still Sunday, but please do come back tomorrow!

    We laughed a good long one on that big_smile

    I even made three phone calls before I left home to try and get some phone work done, and the same message kept coming on, please call during regular business hours...and I said to myself, but its 9:30, where is everyone...and I still wasn't getting it !!!? big_smile

    Kinda scary !

    lol!  I don't know what it would be for me... something stupid happens to me about every 12 minutes. 
    I did chuckle at your Sunday work story, though...I have a tendency to sleep walk, and more than once, I've jumped out of bed, rattled the kids, got them dressed and fed, and ready for school, and then - they asked me why we're going to school at 3am on Saturday.

    Now my daughter's 11, and just tells me "Mom, you're asleep. Lay down and leave us alone." 
    Usually works, according to her.  I rarely remember these things.

    I don't think a lot of people are gonna wanna talk about their most embarrassing moments. I mean really. Not me. Take a guy or girl who wants to talk about their 'most' embarrassing moment, and half the time they've had a moment a thousand times more embarrassing than that.

    This is a tiny bit embarrasing, did not bother me much my kids were devastated.

    I have a daughter round the corner, a son in England and another son who is now in Florida... He emigrated to join his wife and two boys on Tuesday so we got together here in Dublin over the weekend...

    On Sunday my son from England flew into Dublin, and the five of us went out in our car.(we had not travelled as a family of 5 for about 15 years, as they have their own families now)

    All three of them were remembering the cheap holidays we had in Wales, the car so old that they had to wear wellies in the back as there were so many puddles etc etc... on and on about their childhood memories of the 3 of them stuck with us in the car...

    I had chosen this lovely restraunt in Malahide, it makes you feel that you are in Spain with all the boats outside the window.  I assured the kids things had changed, the bad poverty days were over, we were going to a beautiful restraunt, and please stop reminding me what bad parents we had been.  Of course they were enjoying it, and secretly it was just wonderful to have the 3 of them together, who knows when it would happen again.

    We walked in to the place, and were shown to our table, we had requested a table on a kinda balcony, where you could look down on everyone wearing their mink  and pearls etc..

    We sat down and all three of them were giggling like they used to do when they were children, my daughter had pointed out to my two sons that my skirt was on inside out.......  I swear no one else in the restraunt noticed... they assured me everyone would have notice...  That was a tad embarrasing.... I had to walk past all the people in the restraunt, to go to the ladies, as they refused to eat the meal til I changed it...

    In twenty years time if we get together again just the 5 of us the conversation will definately be
    "Remember when mum thought she was posh, and she had her skirt inside out">>>>>
    You cannot make a silk purse out of a sows ear....
