… start with a question ….


Why do boxer shorts have buttons ? How the hell are you supposed to unbutton the damn things, through 4 inches of zip ? Any ideas !!

A mostly uneventful day today. Youngest, despite what I said, was not up early. However his ‘anger’ has continued almost hourly, all day. You could set your clock by it. Again, no obvious triggers, unless it is his ‘unfinished business’ from the night before. Who knows. He seems to have quietened down a lot this evening. Although he is still a bit edgy, and snappy at the slightest thing.

No phone call from the eldest. Again Mrs H is a bit saddened about that. I did not expect him to ring, and to be honest, it it was me, I don’t think I would be ringing home every other night either. I did not when I got married. We will see if he rings tomorrow.

I have just found out that my animated profile picture on MSN worked. J**** said it freaked her out a little. I have to agree there. It was not what I expected. I’ve juggled my PC desk a little, so now I can get my camera on top of the monitor, where it belongs. I should be able to get better pictures now.

That’s just about it I think. Sundays are quite mediocre.

It’s done …….


Well ……… he’s gone. Eldest lad safely installed in his flat. Mrs H was very disappointed in the place. I cannot convince her though, that as student accommodation goes, their place is a palace !! I’ve seen the type of thing students live in. Often they don’t have doors that close …… often they don’t have doors!!! So there are a few problems, and his room is not what ‘we’ expected, but it is not our place. It is his, and he will love every minute of it. As I expected, Mrs H is in bits. Of course I don’t understand any of it. I’m almost as excited as him. It must be a great adventure, and one that I did not even think about having. I left home, when I got married, and I know what is going through his mind …… ‘grown up al last’. I have decided it must be a Mother/child bonding thing.

Tell you what though. I am completely shattered. Shifting all his stuff up 3/4 flights of steps is quite hard work. I was sweating profusely for most of the time. That must beat a 20 minute brisk walk any day. Nothing to eat all day, although, I’ve not been hungry at all, which is unusual for me. I do like to have something around 12:00 ish, but not today. Not even a drink of coffee after 11 am until about 3pm. Had I lost any weight with all that exercise and fasting ???? Not a jot !!!

I have nothing more to say. Let us see what tomorrow brings.
