The Day I thought The Words Had Stopped

The day I thought the words had stopped because anxiety is horrible and it holds no prisoners it is without mercy and it is there niggling at you for attention like a toddler demanding attention 24 hours a day.I have been tasked in finding a joy list that’s however not a list of people called Joy though when I meet back with my nice therapist lady I will tell her I know a couple of people called Joy such is my humour.


Joy is tea and how I love my tea so much so that I have to travel with tea bags just in case there is some sort of  world wide teabag shortage and I may only have the last few teabags left on the planet .



Joy is getting out and about either on your own or with the ones you love or ( moderately like ;-)

And I have been getting out and about and I had truly thought s the words had stopped that my creative abilities had been nipped in the bud much like my promising Tennis career ( which wasn't much as I never got selected for the school Tennis team ever and I was always selected last for Rounders )

Joy is communicating online with friends from all round the world be it Twitter, facebook instagram ( I don't do Snapchat I think it's a Generation gap thing ! I mean I don't quite get Millenial speak at the best of times my University age son has one of those light up messageboxes and the message on it lately has been "Have a Dope day !" And this apparently means have a duplicate day.

Joy is sunshine and a mustard coloured jumper

Dinner Dinner Bat Cat

Everyone as the song goes wants to be a cat  ( and of course everyone want to be me )


And a cat like me ( you never see Batman and a black cat together now that tells you something ) 







should never me made to wait as they will take it out on kitchen roll or toilet roll if you don't respond to their wishes asap currently it the cat verus kitchen roll/toilet role score is

Cat 1

Kitchen/toilet  roll 0


Obviously this isn't a fair match and the kitchen/toilet  roll hasn't been trained like Rocky and has a very atmospheric theme tune to boot and really quite honestly I think the Eye of the Tiger is more suited to a cat anyway. I mean as a cat it should be my tune !!

It’s meow sic to your ears !

My human thinks I don’t know they’ve put Aldi cat food into a Sheba box but I do > blooming Brexit putting up prices of my prefered food. You simply just can’t get the staff nowadays which is utterly scandalous!

Oak And Acorn Oakwood Derby

#Ad #Review


How dining preconceptions can jade you is something I’d not thought of until I realised I hadn’t been to a local pub because it was very much stuck in the 1990s and honestly this was the last time I had visited the Oak and Acorn in Oakwood Derby.So that made my last visit to this pub 20 years ago this was the era of the Spice Girls concidently they’re making a comeback tour this year.

And I was along with my family invited back for the launch of a new look Oak and Acorn.The Oak and Acorn pub has just had a 200 thousand pounds makeover to bring it bang up to date the last refurbishment was done in 2005 so it was long over due.

We were in for a very pleasant surprise now the pub is next to a local shopping area with smart housing round.There is a local park straight across the road perfect for walking off your meal afterwards or indeed a gentle stroll on your way to the pub.


The Oak and Acorn pub has just had a 200 thousand pounds makeover to bring it bang up to date the last refurbishment was done in 2005 so it was long over due.When we got inside we were taken aback how much the pub had changed.There was loads of chatter everywhere and happy smiling faces there was a good mix of ages and people there including families.




I was there with my husband and university student son luckily our table had been reserved for us.We looked over the menu and my husband and son decided to go for the crispy beef and noodles.I on the other hand decided to go for a Tennessee steak with chips.






We had opted to dine at 6.30 and it was busy then and it got busier which is always a good sign.And someone had a cocktail and it wasn’t me !



And of course a family occasion isn’t complete without a desert !



The prices are reasonable and in line with what you’d pay elsewhere for example the crisp Chilli Beef was £9.49


Disclosure I was given £50 credit for the meal and all thoughts words and opinions are my own.
