Where did the week go ….


Well a whole week without a blog. Am I slipping back into old my old habit ? I hope not. So what has happened this week ?

Well surprisingly, not that much really. Eldest passed his driving test, which was good. He was really over the moon about it, and we are all relieved, that that part is over. Now he has to ‘learn to drive’ as all the instructors tell us when we pass. Thing is now, that he thinks he can use my car whenever he wants. He wanted to go to Harrogate in it last night, on his own. We managed to explain to him that it is different driving on your own to being told where to go. Both Mrs H and me think he would be better practising locally for a week or two before he goes off, on his own, on a medium length journey. He is still a little wary, but that will pass over the next few weeks. Mrs H has been looking on-line for prices of new cars for me, so that we can give him mine. This will need a great deal of thought, before we go down that line.

Not spoken to anyone on MSN this week. Mind you saying that, I don’t chat to many on there anyway these days. Always seem to miss Mrs C, when she is on. I tend not to stay on-line a lot now (the youngest sees to that).

I’ve been back on ‘the chat’ again a few times this week. I’m in two minds about that. It really does seem very pointless. It is getting to the point where, if you don’t make smutty suggestive remarks, then no-one chats to you. I do not know if I want that.

A short week next week. I’ve got my hospital appointments on Friday, so I’ll be having flexi in the morning and Special Leave in the afternoon. I’m also at the dentist tomorrow lunchtime. I need a filling repairing, so I’m not looking forward to that much. In all fairness, I have not had anything done, except for scaling and polishing for a few years. In fact, I don’t remember having any work done with this dental practice at all.

If anyone actually read this, you may notice, that I have added the 2007 entries from my Google  ‘Blogger’ blog. I had to look through forums to find a work round, as the direct import routine failed. I was also able to offer some advice to someone who was having a problem with their import, which was very satisfying. I need to ask the question about importing my Windows Live Spaces blog. See if that is possible. Or perhaps not

….. back to work we go ……


What a horrible Bank Holiday Monday it has been. Rain all day, and cold too. It has been a strange weekend really. The youngest has been fine all three days, which was a help. The eldest……well that’s another story. He left his wallet at work on Saturday, he hopes. Then Sunday night him, his girlfriend and some friends went to the pub, then onto the friends house later. Did not get in until 3:30am. Then his girlfriend was ill all night, and this morning had to Harrogate for 11:00am. We left at 10:41am !!!!!!! I think I did pretty well to get them there for 11:10.  I thought he was going to burst into tears when he got in my car. He looked so depressed, and she looked upset too. so what could you do or say ? He had not even said goodbye. I told him to either say goodbye or go ! So he went! He was supposed to come home with me, but he decided to go out with them for the day, and stop the night. It is very upsetting for Mrs H.

It’s a four day week for the next four weeks. A leave day, another Bank Holiday and my hospital appointment. I could get used to this. Dentist tomorrow though and this time I need some work doing. I think I lost part of a filling. The tooth is quite sharp and was a little sensitive a week or two ago.

I put the new wheel trims on yesterday. They look very good. I also tried putting the graphics on, but that was not as successful. I got one on, but it did not look right. In fact it looked quite tacky. Not at all like I expected, so I took it off straight away.

Still no sign of Mrs C on MSN. As before, she has been in facebook, but not at the same time. I’ll just check MySpace ……nope not there. I’ll tell you what though JM left a tweeted at around 6:00pm that she was having a nap, and would someone text her at 6:45pm. So I picked up her mobile number from facebook and sent a text at around 6:50pm. Thought no more of it, until she replied back by text to say thanks. I was amazed … the power of Twitter I suppose.
