Going to the dentist was always one of my 'dreads' but no longer need to (other than if plate plays up!!). Rate per hour must be really good as I bet it did not take long to have little fillings but needs must to avoid the dreaded toothache. Very pleased for you that you can now go a year before having the next diabetic check up. I am sure that weight loss you talked about will have helped the levels.
How clever of you to sort your hard drive storage out. All beyond me and I just transferred my stuff on to an SDcard and deleted a lot of rubbish before getting rid of the last computer. We had to arrange for hubby's old computer to be 'wiped' as there was a lot of work sensitive information on it but his boss did not want it back!
Nice to hear that you are writing again and I bet I know one lad who will be very pleased to read anything you produce. Did you ever get anything published as I know you had been talking of doing so albeit in an electronic format when interest had been shown?
I had a very mixed week. Started with a beautiful new walk on the Monday, visit to Mum on Tuesday though she slept through it. I cannot take credit for where she lives as this was her decision, along with her social worker. They took her to see a couple of homes as well as sheltered housing but as she could manage little for herself felt the sheltered housing would be wasted on her especially as she had no inclination to improve her wellbeing to use it. Unbelievably she will have been there for six years come th end of November. I am going to see her tomorrow morning as have my daughter and grandsons staying from pm tomorrow until late Tuesday afternoon when my son in law comes to pick them up. He will drop them off en route back from a weekend at Hayling Island (spent with his Mum and step dad at a holiday park). This is because my daughter has her yearly heart check up and I can keep an eye on the boys here whilst she goes as it is local to me.
I have this week as leave as on Friday I am away with the family to visit son in law's Dad so the grandkids will catch up with all the grandparents during their half term which will be nice for all concerned.
I spent a couple of days with friends Fri/Sat and Storm Brian luckily gave us a wide berth. A few raindrops Saturday morning plus a very short shower in the afternoon but we dodged them whilst out and about and my friend's husband even played 18 holes of golf on Friday. Not quite as much walking as I am used to as they are somewhat older than myself and less mobile these days but we had a lovely catch up. Will see my friend again early next month when she and I meet up with another mutual friend for a curry night out.
It is good that you have new interest in the Wood Club and great that the library were able to provide you with space and opportunity to bring it to peoples' attention. Hopefully next year will see 'new life' turning up as it would be a shame not to be able to pass on such good skills/interest. Have you been able to do any more turning yourself as the weather is still pretty mild for the time of year. My lawn is still growing and weather permitting will try and give it a mow on Wednesday which will be my only full free day this week.
Well, time to settle down to a bit of TV so will wish you and MrsB a pleasant and peaceful week.
Keep enjoying those chestnuts. I am still making the most of English strawberries!! Jules
