On Yer Bike!

So yesterday I'm driving merrily along in the car with young Master Benedict beside me in the passenger seat. You may have noticed from previous posts that this is the time when Master Benedict often startles me with his bold/sneaky/cunning questions. In fact, if it wasn't for the fact he's in the car with me I'd think he was trying to cause me to crash into the central reservation.  Take yesterday's question which was arguably one of his best yet...



Did you have one of those bikes with one big wheel and one small wheel?

Hmm. I know I've aged recently but not that much. Surely?


  1. OMG Mrs. T! Along those lines, my husband told our grandson a story relating to the Ramayana. Later he tells somebody the story adding, 'That happened when my grandfather was a small boy'.

  2. Hee, hee, hee Sue - your poor husband! Small children, even if it makes us feel old, are so delightfully funny at times:) Master Ben is particularly so...Yesterday I asked him what I should get Mr T for his birthday to which he replied "Socks", followed by "Beer".... who says children aren't observant?!

  3. Many years ago, one of my darling sons asked me, in all seriousness, what it was like when the dinosaurs were alive!

    You always love 'em, but sometimes you don't like 'em much.....

  4. I know exactly what you mean, Martin!

    Still good to know your boys have even less concept of time than mine!! (Feels slightly smug...:))

  5. It reminds me of a conversation I had with my daughter when we were browsing through the photos of Prince Harry and Kate Middleton - I told her "they are Duke and Duchess of Cambridge" She looked at me quite innocently and told "Really? I had no idea" - And she was just 2 then!!!:)

  6. Astute observations Master Ben makes . We're old Mrs T , old . "sighs and slumps down on the floor"

  7. Cocktail Party - Welcome to my Witty Ways:) Your little girl sounds a gem - let's hope she stays that way!

  8. Yep, Mrs G - you hit the nail on the head. It's all downhill from now on. We are old:(

    There's only one solution....

    Let's party!!

    (And if we pretend we've got dementia we can get away with dancing around our handbags...)


I am always delighted to receive comments!

It's the early hours of the morning, and I have had a large gin... Late-night alcohol is always a good recipe for writing gibberish. And...
