Five o'clock already and where did the afternoon go...

I think at times this journal overlaps with my other one (Go ye), but that's not really surprising when, as I go about my many domestic duties and wonder what I am doing with my life, I spend so much time in silent contemplation, which equates to prayer. Someone dear to me said to me recently that... Sign in to see full entry.

A toothless tale

Last Tuesday I took my mother to the dentist for a tooth extraction. She was very good, shaking all over but being brave, and she has coped with it very well at the age of 84. It has taken us quite a while to get her to trust dentists again, and this is just the third of several visits before she...

Cat among the pigeons

Well. I've well and truly done it now. I decided to file for a review of the original consent order with my ex husband. I gave him the opportunity to do the decent thing and make a last payment at the beginning of October but he has stuck to his guns and says he has finished as of the beginning of...

Hrrrmph

I'm angry now. Well, more annoyed than angry but I can't say, to my loved one, how infuriating it is to have something we are watching terminated because he feels it isn't okay for his son to watch (poor baby is bored with it). He has a TV in his own room so why can't he go in there?We're now going... Sign in to see full entry.

I need my mojo back

...don't I? These last few posts are not me. I used to bounce back quite quickly after a bout of lethargy so I need to take myself in hand. We are away next week, walking in the Dales. I don't care if it rains. I will just enjoy being away with Dearest, in the middle of nowhere in his beloved... Sign in to see full entry.

Curry night

Life should be settling down to something a bit more normal, now that we have had Granny's funeral service and are beginning to get over the tiredness. So why am I so subdued, in myself? I am outwardly cheerful and can still laugh, but behind it all I'm uncomfortable, quietly of course. I have... Sign in to see full entry.

If I thought last week was bad...

This was so much worse, in terms of complete disruption but this isn't in any way a complaint. On Monday we got the news from the care home that 94-year old 'Grr-rr-anny' (whom I wrote about when she was still in her own home and was occasionally beastly to me) was failing. Dearest had told me on... Sign in to see full entry.

TGIF today

What a week. Last Friday we found a leak from the hot water tank. Someone was sent out by the insurance company, late in the afternoon, who drained and isolated the tank -- meaning we had no hot water. For a week. It is no fun showering in cold water. I had the bright idea of getting up a bit... Sign in to see full entry.

'Twas the Night Before Holidays...

- and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse... This mouse (me) quietly got on with dear one's ironing this evening before dinner, as he's been playing golf today and is very tired. Just when I thought I had finished four pairs of trousers and three polo shirts I found... Sign in to see full entry.

Morning all...

I'm over my mini-rant from last night. We will all be on holiday in France this time next week so it's no use getting steamed up (not that I would show it anyway). We have quite a lot on already, with granny in the care home. She has Alzheimer's and is up and down a lot, and very frail. Sometimes... Sign in to see full entry.
