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.

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...
