Shattered ….too old for this


   The gig at The Albion was really very good. A lot better than I anticipated. There was an exceptional atmosphere, and I enjoyed the night very much. I was really impressed by one of the artistes, Jess Gardham, a singer songwriter from York. So good, I bought her CD.

   I suppose, that the only thing that possibly spoilt the evening were the local trolls. But then again, it’s their local, and they were just enjoying themselves in their own way. A late night though. It was a quarter to one when I got into bed, and was made worse by the fact that the youngest had been awake at 3am on Saturday morning. He did go back to sleep at times, but you tend to sleep with one ear open, listening out for him.

   An interesting day at work tomorrow. The software we use, has a routine that is supposed to be automatic, but needs to have someone logged into the software, to start the routine. Well we are trying to use a ‘scheduled task’ to run the routine. The software house has told me how to run it, so fingers crossed it all goes according to plan. It will make the whole process a lot easier. It can be run very early in the morning, when nobody is working and in theory run faster. Watch this space.

A long week


   Youngest only on a third of his medication again, and everyone seems to be coping okay. Now here is an odd thing. His consultant, an expert (?) told us that there is no problem if we do not give him his medication, as it is not the type that has to be given. However, the doctor at school is of the opinion, that we should only reduce the dose gradually ! Who is correct ?

   The eldest is coming home for the night tomorrow. We are both hopefully going to a gig at a pub in the next village. There are four acts, and one of them is a local girl, that we both know from the drama group. I hope he does not think I’ll be going early doors. I was thinking of going around 08:30pm, and stopping for a couple of hours. I have the feeling, he may want to stop until the very end, and then some. Would not be at all surprised if I come home on my own. Mrs H will not be pleased at that !!

   Mrs H’s dental pain seems to have eased a little today. At least she doesn’t look as ill as she has done for the past week. I reckon that by the end of Saturday night, the pain will have receded into a dull background ache.

A longish day


Well I was tired, before I started today. Yesterdays late night seemed to do for me a little. Work went okay. The usual minor irritations caused by people who just rush things, without checking all the facts.

Eldest is at a gig in York tonight. A lot of his drama friends have gone, because R**** is one of the performers. I hope he not too late getting in. He has to be up early, as I’m taking him to his flat. I think everyone has to be up for work tomorrow, so they may not be late. Mrs H is not too pleased with him though. He must have been up even later, after we got in, as he did not get up until one o’clock. She was hoping that they might go out during the day somewhere.

There does not appear to be anyone to chat to tonight. Very strange. Not of my contacts are signed into MSN. There is usually at least one person logged in. I had a quick peep in Chat, but that was very quiet.

Youngest has been fine again, although he has just had a bit of an ‘episode, when I told him to shut his PC down.  However, it was not as intense and as extended as usual, so I guess that it was just something that upset him. He does not seem to holding his ears as much either since they were syringed.

The email I get from the ‘Money Saving Expert’, was not up to much this week. There was a link to a free Lily Allen download. I got it, but it was a big disappointment. It is some kind of dance remix, and not the originals. There does not seem to have been many offers from MSE the past few weeks. Some of the offers seem to be a lot of work for very little.

Eldest has just rung (unusual for him) to let us know that he has been invited to the after gig party. I thought that might happen. He says R**** will give him a lift home. He will just have to go on the bus tomorrow. I hope his flat-mate tidies up a bit, or more likely tidies up a lot.

I’m getting a little tired of this theme, so you may see something different in the next day or two.

Done for now.
