>lol<

I live with a bipolar bear who sleeps in late and wakes up grumpy (not to be confused with the bloke I knew called Bear).

Despite years of having to ask for help getting a hot drink or something to eat I still somehow feel that my turn at being disabled has lasted way to long and I would please like to be able--bodied for a year (see I am not being greedy). I know in reality this is not possible but hey just because I have never seen a unicorn it does not mean they don't exist right?

I think having to make other people drinks and dinner, do messages and drive them around and go to work eight hours a day and be able bodied would be worth it. Now I am rattling on again.

It is so cold here this morning I would not be at all surprised to see a bear in my garden.

Yes, my gran used to call it a pinny/pinnie (however it's spelt) and she always wore one.

>doh< >lol< I used to know a bloke called Bear and he never had a bearD . 

I guess if we could grow bears in the garden we could have a picnic with them huh?

Auntie, I wonder if what we call them is affected by our regional accents, but yes on the tabards they are different.

Kizzy, one thing about me having CP is I can wring stuff out in the morning but later in the day fatigue from spasms means ringing capacity all gone  :-(

I would call the photo above a pinny. My Grandma used to wear one all the time.  Infact there is a photograph of a group of her age-range all standing outside a coach waiting to go on a trip.  And they are all wearing pinnies.

A tabard is what the dinner ladies at school used to wear over their clothes - a straight front and back tied up at the sides.

>lol<  and the award for Typo of the Week goes to...

My older-age annoyance is not having so much strength in my hands, so wringing out cloths and flannels is harder work than it used to be - plus opening certain types of packaging (why do some manufacturers make their product almost impenetrable) <grr>

Don't get me started on packaging, and adult proof containers:-

My garden is not big enough to grow bears.

One annoyance I have when it comes to getting older is the way my backside, aka my bum has got so big. I used to have such a nice one too. It is not so much about putting on weight which I have done as the distribution of that weight 
Worse still is I understand women of my figure and age have a choice lose weight get a nice bum but get a haggard looking face.  :-(

... and there is another thing men get to look distinguished as they get older well either that or grow bears.
