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.

Transit?

Tonight, it feels like everything is beginning to fall apart. We've had a lovely end of season barbeque with the choir, and we learn that our director has been approached by our former curate to be the choir director at another parish. I thought this (female) curate was really sweet - but my opinion... Sign in to see full entry.

How to Survive Flybe

The simple answer to surviving a Flybe budget flight is that it is better to pay the additional cost to check in a bag. It sounds quite a bargain, £44 (or thereabouts), one-way to Amsterdam with just cabin baggage. That's all well and good, but the associated stress levels are high. I'd completely...

All is calm, all is bright

I have to admit it, I do love a bit of time on my own now and then, to re-charge and just be myself. After dropping my daughter at the local airport at 6:15 this morning - having got up at 5:30 - I went back to bed and re-set the alarm for 7:15. It was lovely! Especially as I went back to sleep...

The Neighbourhood Is In For a Surprise

This coming Sunday is Midsummers Day, and our choir is providing afternoon tea and music as part of the village's Midsummer celebrations. It's also Father's Day in Britain so we might have a bit of competion, but never mind. Tonight's practice skipped over Sunday's music for the service in the... Sign in to see full entry.

Not a Word All Day

- will I panic? Depends. Pencilled in his diary for today was a lunch with the ex. We haven't spoken about it; I've known for some time that she has been trying to get him to agree to meet her, Lord knows why after all this time. It has fallen through several times so I haven't asked him about it.... Sign in to see full entry.

Mothers

We've had a nice day, daughter and I, taking my mother/her nanna out to lunch. Mum had hearing aids fitted three weeks ago when I was last there. By 8pm she had broken one of them, and because she is housebound and because there are so many new one-way systems and access restrictions in Brighton, we... Sign in to see full entry.

Here's the thing

I finally found the resolve to open his email. It wasn't confrontational, that's not his way, but I had been really upset by the conversation on Sunday and I've been very worried about what he might say. He needs me to help him by stating what I can do or want to do regarding travel. He has a need... Sign in to see full entry.
