Very sensible to get the jobs done early and I know your perseverence will pay off as regards your new ideas - good fighting spirit to make it work. I love haring about the wood facts and you never know when something you have mentioned may pop up in a quiz or corssword. They say you learn something new every day so you have just ticked that box for me!
Busy morning at work and was glad to escape home to the cool of my lounge (and a choc ice from the freezer!).
Mum continues to eat well and they have managed to coax her into a chair a few times this past week. Sadly I doubt there will be any overall improvement and both her physical and mental illness has taken its toll but at 91 she has done well bless her and I think she listens to my chatter even when she keeps her eyes shut (mind you when she snores I take the hint!!).
Have my son coming over on Saturday as we are hiring a van to get rid of unwanted rubbish and some broken items so I will be able to re-jig my bedrooms and free up some space. With my daughter and family now a bit further away I am hoping to be able to sleep them all if they come and stay but needed to make space to fit a double bed. Fingers crossed no trouble with offloading at our local Refuse Dump (they can be a bit picky at times and you have to prove you are not 'trade' when going in with a van plus several pieces of ID to prove you are a resident.
My poor son in law had his clutch go on the way to work this morning so is waiting to hear if it is ready for collection. If not he will go home by train as they are away for Family weekend with the Cubs on Friday and there is much packing up of all the gear to be done. Thankfully they can go in my daughter's car if needs be.
Take care of yourself and Mrs B during this hot spell and best wishes to you both and the family. Jules
