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.

Brain Cramp

I've got to take myself in hand... I've lost an entire week to anxiety and inertia, I haven't contacted my kids and I've achieved very little beyond irritating my partner after my usual Monday at home (last week). I was in such a static state on Wednesday (at home) that I did next to nothing, until... Sign in to see full entry.

The Life of a Monday

We have been getting acquainted with (or in my case reacquainted with) Virginia Woolf, hence my title... more about that later. It just came to me this morning as I arrived home for another Monday of trying to get organised... smile. So - the life of my Monday, typically, starts like this... we get...

Saturday night

It's been a funny week. We've been trying to get organised at his place, after having the decorators in. While we were away for a couple of days - on our own (yippee) for my birthday - the glass shelf in his recently-acquired art deco cocktail cabinet fell down inside the cabinet, and we've had to...
