yvonneh said...

Hi everyone,
I was Yvonne Holt and am now a Phipp. Ken and I have been married 48 years and have two daughters, two grandaughters and one great grandaughter. We lived in St Osyth in Clacton for ten years, moving to Crawley in Sussex last year. As I needed some family support,
with Ken. My hobbies, when I have time are Aston Villa, most sports, reading, knitting, and the cuckoo site. My pet hates are anonymouses

jim davis said...

Nice Photo's Yvonne the pose in the last one made you look like a stern headmisstress. And I had to smile when you said one of your pet hates is anonymouses, because you nearly became one yourself on Tom's now and then page.

yvonneh said...

Hi Jim,
Well spotted, but I always put my name at the end when my computer is playing up, there are NO excuses, thats my stern headmistressy talk. So there, s.i.n.y.p.a.s.i thats if you do smoke

jim davis said...

Dear oh dear Headmisstress, shouldn't that read S.I.I.Y.P.A.S.I. Nerr! Ner! Na Nerr! Nerr! Gotcha!

yvonneh said...

yvonneh said...

sorry forgot to say cant work yours out.

jim davis said...

Yvonne mine was ( Put It In Your Pipe And Smoke It ) What was yours?

yvonneh said...

Oh silly me, yes that was mine minus an I, but I cant work out what nerr,na na ner nerr is. I have spent ages on it, I got Not Everyone Reads Rubbish
but no more did you work out my second one O'great master.

jim davis said...

Oh Yvonne I nearly wet myself laughing when you asked me what mine meant. I imagined you sitting there wracking your brains trying to figure it out. The answer is it meant nothing at all, go back and read it again but fast this time. Nerr Nerr Na Nerr Nerr. is what us kids used to call out to people when we got the better of them. Oh boy just think Yvonne maybe hundreds of people are going to read your Boo! Boo! Tommy I think these last couple of comments could go in the next Cuckooites book for future generations to laugh at. Or we could be open to bribes????

jim davis said...

P.S. No I did not work yours out Yvonne I dread to think what it means. And why did you send your last comment three times. I do appreciate the adulation but that is a bit over the top.

Lynn Smith said...

Hi Yvonne nice to be able to put a face to the name. Hope all is well. Lynn

yvonneh said...

too wise you are
two wise you be
i see you are
too wise for me.
how about that for a compliment Jim even after laughing at me.
You might have made those noises, you silly boy, but I was too grown up, I just used to stick my tongue out and ththththththththbbbbbrrrrrr

jim davis said...

Sorry everybody It seems Yvonne and I have kind of hogged this page. We will be careful in future.

yvonneh said...

jim davis said...

Tommy said...

I loved it Tommy,so much fun listening to a couple of Kids from the past,and yes Yvonne it is your very own web page and you can as you please with it.So there keep it up you guys have made my day.

yvonneh said...

A clip round the ear is more like it jim, and ya boo sucks the boss said it is MY own site so there. Behave yourself while youre here. A couple of bob indeed it was only a tanner. Mind you they would probably charge you for two seats today. Thanks Tom glad you are enjoying my site.

yvonneh said...

Hi Lynn,
I did answer you on your site, but lovely to see pictures of you as well and that lovely, posh man of yours I betr he never went hop picking. Those sheds are lovely basic but nice. Anyway doesnt matter where you stay as long as you are together that is what counts.

jim davis said...

Oh! dear you are being controversial again Yvonne what a load of sentimental rubbish. I would not be over impressed if a woman carted me off to a shed. There again maybe I would for an hour or so. You women use the word romantic and are just in love with the word. It is us men that are the true romantics.

Lynn Smith said...

It was a very nice shed I'll have you know Jim, I think the words he 'got used to it in the end' probably fit the bill.!! You carry on being romantic Yvonne, there's not enough of it in this world. Mind you I think we wins on the romantic front. He cooked me pancakes with bananas and ice cream on our first meeting, took me to Paris for my 40th and often surprises me with a meal at our local lovely Italian restaurant in Wivenhoe where they make the most wonderful garlic bread. (probably not very romantic after I have eaten it but hey it's sooooo delicious)Bit of a food theme there eh!!!!

yvonneh said...

hi Lynn,
Ken and I used to go to Wivenhoe, really pretty place we would sit outside th pub opposite the water, and have a pint of prawns and a pint of winkles with crusty bread and a mackinson it was one of our favourite places, as we could get kens wheelchair right up to the front and he loved watching the boats.
As for jimmy, HAPPY VALENTINES DAY.
Any woman that carted you off to a shed, unless it were for locking in, would want their heads looking at.So what did YOU do on Valentines day for your lovely wife, as you are so romantic.

george said...

Oh boy Jim,you really have dug a hole for yourself,but us males will stick with you my old mate

jim davis said...

Ah! You may take the mickey Yvonne, but I did not go running into a Garage at the last minute to get a bunch of flowers. ( Sorry Lads ) No I spent a lot of time and money thinking of something colorful and interesting, In the end I settled on a book, yes a book. She likes to read and I thought I would purchase one that I do know she has never read. It is called, ( Do it yourself for women ) Now how thoughtful was that? she now has the opportunity to learn something, in future she can do it herself, and as a bonus it gets her off my back. Very clever don't you think.? I don't know if she likes it or not because we are not speaking at the moment.

Yvonne
I noticed you called for my help in trying to control Jim let me tell you I have tried and tried to do that since the day he was born.
When he was little and I had been the only child for 8 yrs until he came along.I got stuck having to wheel him up and down Brants Walk in the pram.and if stopped to turn the rope while my friends was jumping rope up went the window and Mum or Dad would shout out to me and make me push him again, what was worst was the little sod as he got a little older I would have to go in and lay down with him on the bed until he went to sleep.I use to ask Mum can i go out and play after ,yes yes was the answer.well he was crafty little bugger then because he would close his eyes and breath heavy.so i would get off the bed very easy hoping to go out and play but sad to say when i turned my back to go to the door little did I know he was watching me and about then he would start to cry.
And of course by the time he was really asleep all the other kids had gone in because it was getting dark.
SO NOW I ASK YOU IF I COULDN'T CONTROL HIM THEN,I HAVE VERY LITTLE HOPE OF DOING IT NOW SO I AM AFRAID WE WILL HAVE TO TAKE HIM AS IS
I can only say i wouldn;t change anything he is one of my best friends as well as being my Brother

jim davis said...

You know I was very miss-understood as a child, in fact my mother never understood me.

jim davis said...

Chris you faled to tell everyone that I was very scared of the dark, and that is why I needed someone in bed with me. I still have my own private reasons for needing a night time companion in the snore. But that is another story. Behave yourself Yvonne I know what you are thinking.

YVONNEH said...

Hi Chris,
God Jim doesnt know how lucky he is having such a supportive sister. He must read your letter with pride,I know what you mean though I too had a younger brother, there was a ten year gap between us, wre also had Joan who was physically and mentally disabled, I used to wheel her up and down Brants Walk. But as my little brother was growing up I had to take him everywhere, if I did anything wrong or told him off he would snitch on me and my dad used to box my ears. But I wouldnt change him for the world. Since Brian and Joan passed on we only have each other.
I cant beleive what romantic Jim bought his wife, I actually am still laughing from the thought of it, a friend of mine one xmas was bought a washing machine by her husband, that wasnt too bad but when she found he had only paid the deposit and she was left to pay the rest in monthly installments it wasnt long before he was her ex husband, so be warned Jim.

jim davis said...

Yvonne being seriouse for a moment, at the weekend I felt like I'd had enough. So I got a bottle of 100 Asprins and started to take them. But after the first two I felt much better.

yvonneh said...

if thats you being serious Jim ,then I give up too. But I cant stop laughing long enough. Tom , thanks for the mention, and thanks for the site, dont tell everyone though as they will all want to visit. Mind you that would be great fun. It would save me from "you know who" no names, no packdrill.
Jim I am going to take your advice, oh my goodness, give me those other 98 aspirins!!!!!
I will take up the cudgels, because us elderly deserve better.

jim davis said...

Yvonne If the advice is that about Ken. Don't get too hopeful, but nothing ventured nothing gained. I am not a pessimist but I have a rule. Expect the worst then anything over that is a result. That way you don't get dissapointed. So what have you got to lose apart from a hour or so of your time.?
