Trying to find a decent mothers day card with mam on it instead of mum. It has become better over the years but still flipping annoying. I mean its bot just a few people that use the word is it? Must be a market there. Guess online it is then.
I'm sure I saw some in Clintons saying Mam, wasn't mothers day cards as it was a few weeks ago. Probably Valentines or something.

There lots of people originating from the North East of England say Mam so probably enough for a market for cards.

I was going to say, my Mrs often pronounces Mum as Mam, she does spell it as Mum though.
Maybe have a word with one of the card shops, they might be able to get one in or find you a branch with them, otherwise yeah Moonpig or Funky Pigeon.

Just wait until you ask what a Parmo is, the looks I got were not unlike those you'd give to someone who just drop kicked a Puppy into a wood chipper.

Todays grind, Stuff going missing.

My sights getting a bit blurry so went to try and find my Casio watch as it displays a bit bigger and its almost as if someone ate it, I even lifted the mattress up to look under the bed which was a rather stupid thing to do as its just made my already bad back worse and dont even have the flipping watch to show for it.

It's Middlesbrough area of the North east, basically its what we know as Chicken Parmasan but they will use different meats and toppings and its kinda a comfort food staple, you can get it at pretty much any food oulet be it a Kebab shop and proper resturant.

Thing is I essentially live in a box room so theres few places things could go but yet stuff just seems to go into the ether, it's been made a little worse on occasion where able bodied family members have gone in to fix something and then decide to help more and put stuff under my bed to store it, I cannot acctually get under my bed and some this is stuff from my bedside shelf like my glasses, vicks etc, not stuff you'd normally keep out of reach.

You never know in this area :lol:

Its more likely someones stashed it somewhere or knocked it down and opted not to say, it'll turn up somewhere thats its not supposed to be like most things I guess, current favourite is the shed, ask how it got in the shed, Oh I thought you'd want it out the way, when it was stored safely on a shelf already out of the way.
