Normal life

May 17, 2009

It’s always a deep joy to discover that I don’t come from the most dysfunctional family on the planet. I’m truly indebted, again, to the lovely Laura from Are We Nearly There Yet Mummy? for introducing me to a website which has given me fresh hope for my gene pool. Come on, now, take my hand and come with me …. sneak away from cooking the Sunday roast for your nearest and dearest, have a little look, and savour every moment. Yes, yes, we are normal! By comparison, anyway ….

    I’m going there now, anything to feel we might be normal – Whatever that is, as Prince Charles once opined!

    Lovely. Never mind the strangling – did you see his shorts and collar combo?! Priceless.

    That is hilarious – but they look completely normal to me….or is that just because I’m divorced! Lx

    Good God. It’s the completely poisonous look that the daughter is giving her mother that cracks me up. I wonder if she’s still alive?

    My pleasure, Suburbia, it is a corker, isn’t it? AWONI, yes, I remember that quote well, and remember wondering why Diana didn’t run away immediately ….I’m not sure anyone’s normal these days …PMPM, yes, the shorts and collar are a delightful touch, very, very odd having knees on display in a formal photo ….Family Affairs, that is worrying, I think you need to have an urgent affair with a builder xx English Mum, good question, maybe she wants her brother to strangle her instead?? There’s so much going on in that picture that we probably don’t want to know about xx

    Hi, I’m a personal friend of Laura’s, I’ve known her since we were 11. I really don’t know where she finds a lot of this stuff. You should see some of the things she emails me sometimes!

    Hi Mary, I understand and share your concern, did you see that knitted naked family? I’m pretty sure she made them herself ….shhhh! Don’t let her suspect we know!

    This is a corker but still think the naked knitted family is the absolute best….I think we need to petition Laura to do a book of the weirdest things found on the web.
    but you’re right, it DOES make one feel normal (ish).
