It has been a reasonable day today, after the youngest sons ‘episode’ this morning. He had wanted some movie clips downloading last night, and of course, it was too late when I got in. So working on my theory, that he wakes up with ‘unfinished business’, that resulted in the episode. I did the clips when I got in from work, but he was not happy. It was then that I found that the disc I had done could not be seen on his PC. Probably because they were cheap. Saying that, they were half price at £3.50 for 25, so not really ‘cheap’.
So to the change. Well it was a bit wet this lunchtime, so I did not go for my little walk. I went to the pub instead. No the change was, I walked when I got home. I walked for about 75 minutes, so I must have covered about 4 miles. Up to Clifford, then along Windmill Road to Town Hill and then home. It was Windmill Road that slowed me down. I’ll walk the route the opposite way next time. It was a good job that I did not have any money with me, as I was ready for a drink as I passed the Red Lion. My legs were aching (and still are) when I got home. Just not used to the exercise at all. Still I’ll keep going whilst the weather holds. I did think of getting by cycle out though. That may be an alternative. R**** mentioned last night about the Bramham Running Group, and that I should join. If I get sent any info through facebook, I’ll look into it.
No one chatting on MSN tonight, and I don’t want to go into ‘Chat’. The last time I logged in, there seemed to be a lot of back stabbing and nastiness. I get enough of that at work. I am missing chatting to J**** though. I hope her holiday is going well. I just had a quick look in Chat …. still the same . I think I’ll give it a miss for a few days.
Well the pattern that was forming has gone through the window. Its been nearly 2 weeks since the last post. What has happened in that time… !!
Youngest son is currently in Germany with school. That was a major worry for us. Right up until the last minute, we were getting ‘No Germany!!’ from him. But he went, and the reports back sound like he has not had a problem. He is back tomorrow at around 21:30. It will seem very strange having him back. Almost as strange as him being away.
No its the eldest son that seems to be the problem at the moment.
Things do not seem to be going very smooth at the moment. The problem is, I think, that he feels that we should ‘let go’ a little, and allow him to be a 19 year old man. To this end I agree somewhat. However, what he needs to realise, is that he has to act like a 19 year old. Take tonight for instance. I receive a txt message asking when the last bus is. He knows this as every week we txt him the time of the last bus. so tonight he misses it. I get angry … his mum gets upset. He is going to crash at his mates flat, I hope. <<Latest News … he got to his mates>>. I’ll have to set my alarm so I can let him in. I/we are not sure what is happening with his girlfriend. One minute there is no problems, then the next minute there seem to be lots of problems. Think he needs to talk to us more, but that ain’t going to happen.
Big problems at work. IT decided to rearrange the network drive structure. Result, our main software package stops working. I managed to login and hopefully fixed it, but there are still a lot of issues to sort out. It is going to be a difficult couple of days when I get back. Funny thing was, I felt like a real ‘techie’ being able to work from home. That could come in useful. It looks like the new laptop has paid for itself already. It was a bit slow, when I first tried logging in, but now it seems to be the same as at work. Although, opening some files does seem to take a while.
Quiz night at the Red Lion tonight. Mrs H won the Bingo… £13.00. Two calls, which was a bit disappointing. We managed to get 24 points on the quiz, which was our best result yet, and there were some hard questions. Did not bother with the footie card. We only won on that once, and it is not as much fun as the bingo or quiz. A bit miffed that the relief landlord was still there … he is a bit of a miserable sod. Eldest does not like him, and I don’t think many others do either. Seems to be a different atmosphere when P*** and S**** are away.
