And, by the way...

- daughter is flying home from Australia as we speak. We will be away till the weekend so she is coming to me as of Monday. Won't that be fun and games as well (given the past history she's set up by refusing to have anything to do with dear one or Charlie/stepson). Ho hum:) Sign in to see full entry.

Rebellion?

I've more than had enough of 'Charlie' always in the house, much less going away on holidays with him. Yes, it's come up again. Like a bolt out of the blue, dear one rather forcefully told me he wants me to say what I want to do for the rest of the year... just before I was leaving for church on... Sign in to see full entry.

On tippy toes perhaps?

Dear one was a tad restless yesterday evening. I didn't seem to get a minute's peace after we got in from a nice afternoon at some lovely gardens near here, where the rhododendrons are just at their best - a riot of colour. We'd met up with my sister and her husband, who had been in the area for the... Sign in to see full entry.

Small mercies.

Unusually for us, we were both sitting in the conservatory reading, after Sunday lunch and the usual marathon of clearing up. Yes, I had put the dishwasher on...smile. Around five stepson appeared from the living room after his own marathon of sport on TV, and as usual wanted to tell his dad the... Sign in to see full entry.

Friday again

Hello everyone.... thank goodness the general election is over now, and we can all go back to normal. Here we are, 7:15 on a friday night; stepson is out at tennis, I have just finished clearing up after dinner, and my man is watching TV quietly... actually not that quietly, since his hearing is...

7 minutes to risotto

just a quick few minutes... beloved's birthday tomorrow, and I will be making a cake (in the morning now, because we have been out to the garden centre and it was a bit late to start one).... I've been upstairs, surreptitiously wrapping the little gifts I have collected over a couple of months (what... Sign in to see full entry.

Company

I'm tired.. another sleepless night last night, followed by a busy afternoon. Man has had visitors (his cousin and wife) and we've fed them very well, firstly last night for dinner, and today at lunchtime. Granny is 94 (yesterday), which is why they drove down from Yorkshire to see her in the care... Sign in to see full entry.

Chilli

happy New Year to you all... I have 15 minutes before the relentless beeper on the electronic steamer tells me the rice is ready... I have done chilli con carne tonight, and it's almost ready. Stepson has been gone most of the day, after his Saturday tennis, and we have mooched around the house a... Sign in to see full entry.

Mildly bothered but not all that much

The house is in a state of massive disorder; my man decided to have the floor replaced in the living room, and work started on the 18th. His study is like an assault course, full of the cleared furniture, and the newly decorated dining room/conservatory has the very large (and now non-operational)... Sign in to see full entry.

Silly season again

My blogit space really is my lifeline when things go awry... we had the hard discussion about next year's holidays, and eventually I managed to articulate that I felt the relationship had taken a back seat to his son, this year. It was hard for me to get that out. I know full well he will never... Sign in to see full entry.
