Yesterday evening we were walking around IKEA , we were there to buy a desk using Fiona's birthday money.Going through the section that sells pictures frames and prints we passed 2 young men looking at frames and it was pretty obvious from the way that they were talking and behaving that they were gay. I personally have no issue with a persons sexual persuasion, as I have said before, I believe that what you are is what you are and it is not my job to judge anybody. I have heard people say that they do not like to think about homosexuals having sex as they think it is disgusting, I personally have no desire to think about anyone having sex, straight, gay or any shade of whatever. As we passed the 2 young men I heard 2 men in front making gay jokes and generally being unkind about the young men that had passed, I am not sure if the 2 young men heard them but the behaviour was still unacceptable. I made the mistake of telling SnoWhite what I had heard, she flew through the store like an Exocet missile on a mission and I was a bit unnerved that she might say something but luckily she had lost some steam by the time we reached the checkouts. However, by chance we ended up in the checkouts right behind them,luckily I was able to control her..........mostly! She contented herself with discussing their female companions(who were sitting waiting at a distance) and how she felt that they had fallen from the ugly tree and hit every branch going down! All that I can say is that time had not been kind to these ladies and thankfully I was able to keep SnoWhites decibel levels down enough to save us from a retaliatory strike. SnoWhite has a literal mind,if you are mean to someone then karma will bite you in the butt and as everyone knows SnoWhite loves her Karma perfume.
Having grown up as the victim of much bullying I feel strongly about bullying and I am glad that these ladies did not hear what was being said about them but what the 2 men said was wrong and I am a strong believer in karma or whatever others may call it and I believe that it will 'bite their butts' one day.
For now though I shall have to content myself with putting a leash and muzzle on SnoWhite, an autistic mind can be a very complicated(or simple in SnoWhites case)thing!

Today found us in another potentially volatile situation!
A christening.
A sort-of-relative but also the mother was the sister of SnoWhite's friend from work. The-sort- of-relative was the mother's boyfriend but they are no longer together so it is a bit of a difficult situation, we were in a way the 'out-laws' not the 'in-laws' but SnoWhite being the sister's friend made it cool.
What can I say in case one of them reads this blog?
The christening was enlivened by Beauty trying to play the piano, singing the Neighbours theme tune, Beauty trying to take her dress off and Beauty repeatedly singing the ASDA(Walmart) radio jingle and constantly saying the end, in the car and in the buggy to make us leave. The party was in The Eastern Leisure Centre and it was really good as they had the Bouncy castle and soft play out. The baby is a little sweety.........what more can I say? And the party was uneventful...........what more could you ask for?

That's great about the party!

Do you guys have Mother's Day over there? ???

We were at Walmart today and my daughter was blocking a gentleman and didn't say excuse me. I asked her and she said no and I corrected her.

Do you know the guy turned around and said, "Thank you. Happy Mother's day."

He was black.

I was further embarrassed. I don't care what color he was, I like polite children.

Happy Mother's Day from the Mean Mom.


We celebrated Mothering Sunday on March 17,it is celebrated the fourth Sunday in Lent and is part of the Church of England Liturgical calendar.Everybody celebrates mothering Sunday then whether they are Church of England or not.
I hope you had a good Mother's day.

I'd be more than happy to employ SnoWhite as a customer relation's officer where I work!


SnoWhite would make a fantastic Doctors receptionist a veritable dragon at the gate.




An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
