Strange but true …


The strangest thing about being “Home Alone” is the noises that occur during the night. K*** is away with her sister and niece and R*** is on respite until Friday. Usually, R*** has his computer and TV on all night and you can hear that as a faint background noise. Then there is your partners … Continue reading Strange but true …

New Camera and things


          Quiz-nite, last night was fun. R*** is on respite, so Mrs H was allowed out. Didn’t win either the quiz or the bingo, but one of our ‘team’ won the football card, so not a total washout. There was some wine left, when we got home, so Mrs H drank that and I … Continue reading New Camera and things

One more day ….


   This seems to have been a long week. It fact, it HAS been a long week. A few problems at work, and lots to do. Although I don’t think the last two late nights have helped much. Quiz-nite on Tuesday, and for one reason or another, it was gone half past eleven when I … Continue reading One more day ….

Tired and working too hard …… (my excuse)

That made it a very pleasant evening. However …… getting home at 23:45, and then deciding to have a brandy (or two) is not a good … Continue reading Tired and working too hard …… (my excuse)
