From then to now … gets a bit boring !


When I say ‘… a bit boring …’, I mean that nothing really eventful happened. A few new residents zones installed, new staff, new equipment but nothing startling for about six years. The team and me just plodded along. So as I say, when I look back, it was just a bit boring. Still enjoyed … Continue reading From then to now … gets a bit boring !

From then to now … end of the dream …


After the initial ‘first night’ nerves we began to think that we were going to make something of ourselves.  Lunchtime service was working well and we were getting a slight increase in numbers. But it was the evenings that were starting to show. Wednesday was usually the poorest night, but then again nobody seemed to … Continue reading From then to now … end of the dream …

One week later (or maybe a bit longer……..)


Well I’ve had the new car for just over a week, and it seems to be fine. Acceleration is not as good as the Ford, and handling at 70 mph needs full attention, but I’m quickly getting used to that.

He had just had a tooth extraction, on the … Continue reading Long time…no post

S**** appeared to be in a better mood than yesterday (I’m still flavour of the month) although still managing to be a pain. The migration from Lotus Notes to Outlook continues, … Continue reading Another day off ….

A good deal ..


   I got the car service and MOT done today. No major problems, except one with the rear suspension. Apparently ‘one of the bushes on one of the suspension arms had too much movement’ which partly failed the MOT. All gibberish to me, but it was a similar thing with the front suspension last year. … Continue reading A good deal ..

Well if that was the weekend ……


   Not a lot happened this weekend really. Youngest got through the day without any medication again. There was a couple of close calls, but when I look back on it, it was probably my fault. He probably just wanted his space.    Eldest came up for his drama rehearsal this afternoon. He was helping … Continue reading Well if that was the weekend ……
