Feeling better in mesel this past few days. I do believe all your kind replies helped a great deal.
Now then, today
s post title refers to yours and my mate… our Boudicca.
Just read a children
s book on her from tlibrary. I ordered it not knowing it was for kids! But, hey, it makes for a good quick, informative read.
I was christened Boudica by a fella on here…perhaps you know who you are and will tell me. It was maybe last year, when I was carping…campainging for Changing Places loos. I was banging on about
em, after using 2 in Blackers and Leeds. Boy! are they good! Hoists, changing tables, room for a carer at each side of tloo…brilliant!
For those of you who dont know owt about Boudica…here`s a potted history…and the similaities twixt she and I, are amazing!
She was born in east anglia region, to royalty and had red hair, in 20 AD, loved bling and was rather bolshy…yeh, like yours truly!..apart from the royalty bit of course…but isnt Yorkshire a special place to come from?
Our Bou had 2 daughters…me too…after her OH died, the romans took her land and oh no! she weren
t having any of that mallarky! She rose up against em, gathered armies from near and far and squished oodles of the off cumdens (a Yorkshire term from outsiders moving in).
She beat `em at Colchester, London and St Albans, but eventually after many victories she was defeated by, of all names, a geezer called Paulinus! She took a poison as she vowed never to be a slave for the romans.
I know, someone named the same as me…Pauline…ended her reign…so am I fighting mesen? Feels like that sometimes!
I`m proud to be nicknamed Boudica…what a lady…what a champion…fantastic!
The morale of the story is…keep going guys and gals, and although it is sometimes like trying to run up a down escalator, fight the good fight and battle onwards for as long as you can, yeh?
much, much love
n stuff, Boudica…aka Polly.xxx
