It had to improve …


It started when I got home Friday afternoon. I left early as K*** was taking her mother to an appointment and I needed to be home in time for R*** coming home. He’d been on respite since Tuesday and has been getting home the previous week at about16:40. So I needed to ensure that I … Continue reading It had to improve …

Weekend over ???


Yes it is over, and to be honest, I'm quite glad about it. It wasn't the painting that was the problem, although that was stressful in itself, it was the problems with R. It must have been the new medication. Sunday was just as bad as Saturday. It just was not him, and he was … Continue reading Weekend over ???

Weekend comes early ….


   A couple of days off straddling the weekend, comes as a welcome break. Although more decorating is on the cards. This time its the dining room, and  as you may be able to see, the colours are very strong to say the least. another problem, is the amount of furniture in this room. Against … Continue reading Weekend comes early ….

Weekend … what weekend ?


   Well nothing much happened over the weekend. I did the run around with the Christmas presents, for my family, on Saturday. That took all of 2 hours. Great fun, I don’t think !!!    Sunday at home, then into Leeds to pick up the eldest, who is stopping here for Christmas. He is going … Continue reading Weekend … what weekend ?

A busy day at home


   It was the school Christmas Fayre today. Mrs H was running the Tombola for a change (she is usually in the kitchen), and she had her niece to help her. It is hard work when she is here, as she is quite energetic, for want of a better word.    Last night of the … Continue reading A busy day at home

That was the weekend that was ….


   Another weekend over. Eldest was up for his drama rehearsal tonight. He should have been at the village hall for 7pm, but the bus failed to turn up (hmmm). He did not want any food, as he had been to the German Christkindelmarkt in Millennium Square. It is an annual thing, and is very … Continue reading That was the weekend that was ….

The end is nigh ……


   That of course refers to the weekend being nigh. It seems to have been quite a long four days. I think the late night on Wednesday did not help, although, I did not feel as tired on Thursday morning as I did this morning. I suppose it’s catch up.    Eldest came home tonight, … Continue reading The end is nigh ……

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 ……

That’s Friday over


   It may seem silly going back to work for one day before the weekend, but I did manage to get quite a bit done. Our ‘corporate email’ is in the process of migrating from Lotus Notes to Outlook 2003, and it was our offices turn this week. Of course, all the Numpties found it … Continue reading That’s Friday over

Bit of a break….


The youngest is away on respite this weekend, so it’s a bit of a break. He went off this afternoon, and will be back on Monday around 10:00ish. Mrs H has a day off on Sunday, so we have the weekend all to ourselves. I’m not sure about this new theme. I quite like the … Continue reading Bit of a break….

Yah ….. nine days and no work …


Today went as well as can be expected. It appears G*** is not too happy with me. Seems to thinks she has done something to upset me !!!! How long have you got ???? If she thinks she can p**s up by back and get away with it, then think on. I’ll bide my time. … Continue reading Yah ….. nine days and no work …

All done..sort of


Well the reports got done. I tried doing the ‘fiddly bits’, but I did not know what ‘She Who Must Be Obeyed’ actually wanted me to do. Juggling the spreadsheet about, using financial controls is not my kind of thing. So after consulting the boss, I left the job ‘unmolested’. Anyway, neither of the people … Continue reading All done..sort of
