Ear worms...

...don't you just hate them?

4.00 am this morning I lay in bed with the song, "don't jump off the roof Dad, you'll make a hole in the yard" going round and round in my head. I have been afflicted with this particular ear worm since Christmas morning when 'Stewpot' was reliving the childrens'  favourites of my youth; Puff the magic dragon, the runaway train, etc., etc.
I confided this to G this morning (will I never learn?) and he's been happily whistling it through his teeth ever since...grrrrr!
Oh well, could be worse - it could have been the laughing policeman...ha ha ha ha, ha ha ha ha..ha ha ha ha ha....


  1. The "laughing policeman" will always remind me of our impromptu cruise from Loughborough and the song being played loudly while a highly "disorganised" group of girls demonstrated how not to steer a pair of day boats out of a lock.

    Happy memories! I do hope that we see you on the cut in 2013 - we've had some magical cruising days together :-)

  2. We should try for a cruising PLAN with you this year, especially as we're heading your way (well we will be if we EVER get out of here). I'd forgotten about those girls.

  3. A what - are you mad? We "plan" every year - can't recall having had one work yet though :-)

    ps. Happy New Year!

    1. Happy New Year. I certainly don't remember ever planning to spend a year out here; but there you go. Plans A-Z; one usually happens
