Spreading Happiness....

Published: 6th April 2020 08:04

This is a special gallery to go along with our mission to Spread a Little Happiness during some tough times.

If you have a photo, a story, a poem or anything else you'd like to share with the rest of Neston, please do send it in to us.  Remember, not everyone is on social media, so feel free to send things in that you've seen there.

Creative isolation is tackled here, offering great links to webpages that will help you stay mentally and physically active and engaged, even if you're stuck at home.

6.4.20. This is lovely, from Rosie Ferguson: "My two girls, India and Elsie, popped some posters up on Wood Lane at the start of this... just hoping that we could share some smiles with passers by. We noticed that someone had kindly shared a picture on his walk (see Roy Wilson's photo on March 31), which was so nice to see. We have just come in from our daily walk and spotted that someone has kindly added to it... it has made our day again! Just wondering if you could please share with your other posts so that we can say thank you and also encourage any one else to leave their messages too!!"

I interrupt the COVID-19 untrue scare stories

Yesterday I went to Sainsbury’s supermarket to buy a bag of food for my dogs.
Already in line, a woman behind me asked me if I had a dog.

I stared at her (those who know me will imagine my gaze ????) ...but then why would I be buying dog food...right?

So on impulse I told her no, that I didn’t have a dog, that I was starting the dog food diet again, and that I probably shouldn't because I ended up in the hospital the last time, but I did weigh 4 kilos less!
I told her that it was the perfect diet and that all you had to do is carry a few biscuits in your pocket and eat one or two every time you feel hungry (I have to mention that practically everyone in line was interested in my story).

Frightened, the woman asks me if I ended up in the hospital because the dog food had poisoned me. I answered...of course not!
I was admitted because I bent down to snif the bum of a German Shepherd and it bit me??????
I thought the man behind her was going to have a heart attack...he was laughing so hard!

We need to laugh more! Have a GREAT DAY

THIS one really IS true...

overheard a conversation in a very packed Willaston pharmacy.

"So and so is in self isolation.
Oh why is that?
His wife has a chest problem.

How do you know?
I’ve just seen him in the paper shop !!!"

You couldn’t make it up ?? Thanks to Ann for that.

Just been in Sainsbury’s . Saw a fella whose trolley was full to the brim with hand sanitizers, baby wipes, soaps, everything that people need!!
I called him a selfish scum, gave him the low down about the elderly and vulnerable who need these types of things. Told him he should be utterly ashamed of himself!
He said: “That’s all well and good mate but I work here, can I carry on filling the shelves now?”

In one of those small supermarket's on the way to work I witnessed some contraband toilet roll trading.

There weren't any on the shelf but the lady had some in the back that she was letting locals purchase. One packet rationing.

It's tragic comedy I suppose.
