What the *&%^? Part 1

Being a dozy big moo at the moment, I am idea-less and have decided to tell this story a la London City Mum and her people-watching posts (OK that's a polite way of saying that she posts hilarious pictures of hideous fashion and style crimes!)

Here is my version - What the *&%^? Part 1. I give you: The chav pram Excuse the white monstrous vest creature (I call that disorder Fat Back, and I do have FB myself, that's why I can laugh at others).

Look at the baby seat in the trolley! Quite a good idea yes, to put the baby seat inside the trolley in the supermarket but when you have finished your shopping and are now walking around the streets of a market town, NO!

Thanks to OH for this little gem, taken on his iPhone. I hope for more!


  1. He he, I think the OH was very brave taking such a picture. Chav's can have a fierce temper!

  2. ha ha.... I have to confess thou that M had a ride in a supermarket trolley last Tuesday with Nanny & Grandad along the streets back to Sainsburys. As usual it had been dumped so M was inisitent that it was returned, so my folks promptly lifted her in and pushed her back to Sainsburys!

  3. Hmmm... may have to 'sue you' for copyright now!

    Am VERY flattered that you have been inspired to follow suit. Impressive photo. Did you stalk them down the street? Did you remember to turn your flash OFF? Would you recognise them again (or worse, they you)?

    If you can answer 'yes' to any of the above, you are a certified member of the team.

  4. Great spotting and well snapped. Was half expecting to hear that the white vest creature turned and swung her handbag at OH. Lucky escape.

  5. Spencer Park, I think he was brave. I hope he has the courage to take another pic.

    Anonymous (aka A&B?), Ah but they were doing a good deed! That is allowed.

    LCM I thought if I admitted plagiarism then you wouldn't sue me! I asked OH the questions - NO, he was walking the same way, NO as the pic was taken on a flash-free iphone, and NO he wouldn't recognise them. I am afraid he may be certifiable, but he's not a certified member of the team. I on the other hand will endeavour to take a pic myself.


  6. Cate P - Ah so that's what that bruise on OH's forehead was from!! -HMx

  7. And Spencer Park thank you for following!

    And thanks Elizabeth too. -HMx

A walk from Portchester Castle to Salt Cafe

Well we just had to choose the worst day of the year to walk. The date had been set weeks before - who knew there would be the worst winds of the decade almost on this very day? But we didn't want to be beaten. We will walk to the cafe. At least it wasn't raining! Parking is free next the castle and obviously, it wasn't busy this day! We set off around the outside of this medieval monument. The sea wall affords views across to Portsmouth and Gosport, and Portsdown Hill if you look behind. You can see the Spinnaker Tower in my photos, but you'd have to zoom in. The sea wall leads to a walk along a path, switching between grass (a much more sheltered area) beside a playpark, and the beach. It is an easy, flat walk, made slightly harder in the wind. After 1.75 miles, you reach the Salt Cafe (@saltcafe66). This took us one hour - that wind did slow us down! I've had a breakfast bap there before and remember it being delicious, but slightly expensive. But today, we

Would I Lie To You board family game review

Would I Lie To You? "The game of believable lies and unbelievable lies ", linked into the TV show of the same name. Purchased:  December 2017 in Waterstones, for around £20 In a nutshell: These TV show-affiliated games usually show themselves up (Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Top Gear) but this game is fun and easy to play (if a little modified) as a family. You don't really need specialist knowledge to play, just the ability to lie! Every year for Christmas, I like to buy a board game to play, even though no games better either Ludo (in which my dad is the reigning cheater-champion, and argues to high heaven over the rules about doubling up or how to place your counters in "Home") or Rummikub (which we can now play with two packs of cards lest we forget the game). This year, Would I Lie To You caught my eye in Waterstones (other emporiums - emporia? - for book lovers are [locally] unavailable). It's a game, it says, for 2-8 players; however we dec

Ms Humdrum reviews: B Afternoon Tea Bus Tour around London

Family and friends, tasty tea, cute cakes, succulent sarnies, scrumptious scones… what more could you ask for? Some sightseeing around Central London please. Oh, and on a vintage red double decker bus, if you don’t mind. What I’ve described is exactly what you get from the B Afternoon Tea Bus Tour. Priced at around what I paid for the Ritz afternoon tea some five years ago, you rock up at Victoria bus station and check-in to board the bus. The waiting staff guide you on and you find your booth. I manged to get a photo before anyone arrived.  The tea is set up for you and is sort of stuck down on the table with a little bit of material! Note the nice touches of the flowers adorning the sides of the bus and the tables with natty bus and shopper images. You settle in and order your first (of many) drinks. I had in my head that I’d be supping loose tea using a strainer out of a bone china cup and saucer. However that just isn’t going to work on a bus, I realise. So you are given
