Not a retrospective.

New Year’s Eve is an odd day for my family. It should be my youngest sister’s birthday, it is her daughter’s. So we gather together to have a party for a nine year old, those of us from further away swap Christmas presents, and we don’t really mention those missing. It is a day for […]

Even if it rains

there are nice ppl around. It was a glorious morning this morning. So obviously I sat in the house and put off shopping until there was a freezing rain this afternoon. Sigh. In my defence my phone didn’t warn me… so when I went out to walk to the other end of town it was […]

Redeeming the day.

The week between Christmas and New Year is usually pretty quiet, and uninterrupted by external forces. Today was an exception to that rule, with two appointments this morning, and then I planned a shopping trip. Midwife arrived sometime after 9.30 and did all her bits, and everyone got to listen to baby’s heartbeat and watch […]

Pride comes before a fall.

Today I was feeling quite pleased with myself. I did washing, washing up, bit of tidying, sorted through three bin bags and reduced them to two, with a pile of stuff to go to charity. I received 10 parcels at various stages of the day, including 5 out of the 6 present orders I was […]

Christmas crafting.

Ever such a long day today, travelling to a Christmas crafts day with our History etc buddies. Where we usually do it as an overnight it was a day trip, and that means over 3 hours in the car. Consequently we’re all tired this evening, and I’m off to bed very soon. But before I […]
