It has been a strange week. My hospital appointment, on Monday went without a problem, and we managed to get out for lunch afterwards, which was nice. A big upset on Tuesday though !! I went to the quiz-nite, in the village pub, and found out the landlord and his family were being moved on by the brewery !! They had only been given a weeks notice, and they had to be out by Thursday, ready for the new people to move in. It is, apparently, the type of thing the brewery does often. So it was quite an emotional end to the evening. They have been in situ for just over 5 years, and I have been a regular now for nearly 3 of those years. To think though, I nearly did not go that night. Me and Mrs H went for a meal on Thursday evening, and called in the pub to have a look at the new people, only to find that they pulled out at the last minute, and an emergency relief was in instead !!!
Had a really bad cold-caller this lunchtime. I picked the phone up, and the voice, which sounded like a child, asked to speak to the ‘homeowner’. I said they were speaking to them, and the voice said, that they ‘were doing a special promotion, in my area…’. I asked who they were, and the voice said ‘Space Kitchens’. I told the voice that I was not interested, and they just hung up !!!! No attempt to twist my arm … no questions as to why I was not interested, and most annoying of all, no thank you !!!!! Astounding!! I Googled the company, and found that there were very many dissatisfied customers. They did not even have a postal address on their web-site. Enough said.
Youngest seems to have had a good respite session. Mrs H asked him last night, if he had had fun, and he said yes !!! Maybe he is beginning to settle down now. I hope so, because the next time is when Mrs H goes away with her sister for a week in mid February. That will be a crunch time I think. They still don’t seem to understand his likes/dislikes with food. Every place he goes to, think they know best, and try to get him to eat the same food as them. Well he will eat more different foods than he did say 5 years ago, but they claim he ate a ‘burger, with cauliflower and peas’ !!!!! I find that extremely hard to believe. He will eat a burger if there is nothing else, but for someone with his eating habits, cauliflower does not ring true to me. Mrs H said that the line was very bad, so they may have thought it was someone else that was ringing.
