It seems to be getting easier


Mrs H took the youngest to see S****’s flat today. Well that was not the main reason for going, I suppose, and neither was taking the small table and chairs. No I think she had to go round for herself. Just to convince herself that he is coping. From what it sounds, he realised this and reacted accordingly. I just hope, that she gives it a lot longer before she rings up to go again. I can see him getting upset if she tries to go every week.

My pedometer arrived this morning. Apparently, it was sent on the 23rd July, but was left on someone else’s desk. A person who was on leave until today. Not that is much use. When I took if off my waistband when I got home, it showed that I had done 9 steps !!!! It looks like the Council has bought the cheapest it could find. Although knowing the way things operate in the Council, it probably was not the cheapest. I noticed straight away that the LCD screen was blanking out  when I was sat. I understand that all I need to do was start walking again to carry on the count. However, even the slightest brush of any of the buttons, and the thing resets. I have another one that I intend to use. I may complain, but as it will not do much good, I may not. I think I calculated, that I had done about 5,000 steps. I know I did 2,000, when I went out at lunchtime, and over the rest of the day it must have added up. It is still a long way off the 10,000 I should be doing.

Work was okay today. I managed to get through all I intended to. A bit less to do tomorrow, although I should be able to spin it out. S**** M******* did not say a word to me today. Spent most of the day talking to P***, so he wasn’t too pleased. It looks like G*** is applying for a temporary job to cover maternity leave. It is a higher grade, but the problem with temporary jobs is just that ……they are temporary. She will come back !!!! Like a bad penny as they used to say.

Done for now.
