There's no better cure than laughter

There’s no better cure than laughter

There is no better cure for a bad mood than laughter. Not just a little giggle, but side-splitting, drink-coming-out-of-your nose, hard-to-breath, tear falling laughter. It’s like having an emotional colonic. Cleans out all of the stuff and purifies the soul.

It’s hard not to feel better after a convulsion of hysterical laughter. I don’t know about you but it makes my mind and body feel re-freshed.  Like I am invicible and can take on anything that comes my way, any problem and however serious is long forgotten and all I feel is happy.

When I want to laugh like that, there are a couple of friends I always call. Within minutes, we can hardly speak because the tears are rolling, noses are running, and our breath is coming in short pants!

This week has been one of those weeks where a much needed ‘gin dinner’ as we girls call it has been required.  So on the spur of the moment of we set off to our favourite restaurant to have a few well deserved gin and tonics and a bite to eat.

After talking random rubbish (but important rubbish all the same), ample amounts of alcohol, not-very-clean-and-will-not-do-our-healthy-eating-any-good food and a boat load of laughter later we all departed, returning home feeling totally refreshed and restored.

Don’t get me wrong sometimes running and exercise work perfectly well, but sometimes a good side splitting laughter session with your closest friends is just what the doctor ordered.

Now although this isn’t a funny blog I hope it has you thinking…………….what is it that makes you feel refreshed and restored after a hard week or troublesome problem? Laughter or exercise?

And don’t you deserve what works for you more often so you feel more happy?

We would love to hear your views.

Amusing memories

Whether it be my children or my friends you can guarantee not a week goes by whereby someone has said something that has been highly amusing, humorous or at the very least memorable. Here are some of mine;

1. A son’s logic

Son: ‘Mummy can we have a rabbit’
Me: ‘No sorry darling I am allergic to them’

Son: ‘When you die can I have a rabbit?’
Me: ‘OooooooK…….yeah sure why not’

Problem solved although if you find me in the freezer and replaced by a rabbit you know whom the culprit is.

2. Intelligent little bean

When my daughter was about 3/4 we were at the doctor’s. The nurse was asking all the standard coordination type questions such as touch your nose, put your hands up etc. Being a healthy capable little sugar bean, she’s was doing everything fine.

Then, the nurse says, “stand on one foot.” My darling daughter looked at the nurse, looked down and hesitated.

She then walked over and stood on one of the nurse’s feet.

Hmmmm didn’t quiet see that one coming!

3. Popcorn and Cinema

One day whilst my daughter was at her friends birthday party I decided to take my son to the cinema as a treat. Please bare in mind he was no older than 3 years old.

Through half of the film I had held the box of popcorn between him and I. Then halfway through I moved it to sit on my lap thinking he would simply just reach over.

He did but quiet reach and before I could hand him the box he shouted at the top of his lungs ‘MORE COCKPORN MUMMY!’

My only thought was ‘Ground, open, please!’

4. Parents watch your language

Having strapped my son into his car seat and commenced down the road my 4 year old son (at the time) says ‘any dickheads on the road today mummy’.

5. Geography took a beating

In a conversation with my friend about our girls weekend.

Friend: ‘Right so I want to do a return flight to Nepal?’
Me: ‘Well you can go to Nepal in Asia but I am going to Naples in Italy so you can come there instead if you like?!’

What are your amusing memories?
