The skin of my teeth


The seat of my pants!

I used to have systems Mrs G - no one was more organised than me - ran two businesses from home, did PAYE and VAT and everything - a place for everything and everything in it's place - whatever was needed I knew where it was.

And then Pa had his fall ................... chaos ensued .............. life has been lived by the skin of my teeth and the seat of my pants ............ now I have time to make systems again

A swarm of bees in May is worth a load of hay

A swarm of bees in June is worth a silver spoon

A swarm of bees in July is hardly worth a fly


Just a Canadian laugh.
