50 weeks until
Friday, March 24, 2017      4 comments

The Wedding of The Century. Well to be precise, it's fifty weeks until the Eve of The Wedding of The Century but I've decided to count down on Friday's because lets face it, I won't be 'counting down' on the actual day! I also decided I'... Read more
Conversations with myself
Thursday, March 23, 2017      2 comments

And with inanimate objects. I've mentioned numerous times about the clutter [oh god the clutter!] and all the stuff that came back from storage. I had already been through a lot of the storage boxes but still there was what felt like an o... Read more
The first week of the Countdown
Monday, March 20, 2017      2 comments

The first week of the countdown to The Wedding of The Century has passed. And not entirely successfully it has to be said. When I weighed in on Monday, I had gained nearly 1 and a half pounds. Possibly due to the impromptu Chinese on Friday an... Read more
Lets get quizzical

A Saturday night out - there's a novelty! I was invited to a Quiz Night which was quite enjoyable. It was for a local residents group that some of my friends belong to. Not me as they don't live in quite the same area as me. The friend that ... Read more

My daughter and future son in law took me to visit my mother today. A sudden decision as daughter only 'phoned me about it yesterday but an opportunity to see my mum that I grabbed with both hands. I had to juggle a few other things around but... Read more
A little bit of Irish
Thursday, March 16, 2017      3 comments

Tomorrow is St Patrick's day as I'm sure you all know. So in honour of that I was going to make colcannon soup for my lunch and an Irish stew for dinner. However, my daughter rang earlier and offered me a lift to visit my mother. As I'm strug... Read more
Cooking for Others
Monday, March 13, 2017      2 comments

I love to cook. I did most of the cooking at home from the age of about 14. Mum was delighted - she wasn't such a keen cook. She worked full time, had to feed the family on a pretty low budget, and provide for my dad's particular dietary need... Read more
One Year
Sunday, March 12, 2017      4 comments

Until The Wedding of The Century. No, no, no - not me, my daughter! Actually, to be precise, it's 363 days but it was exactly one year when I started musing on the things I think I'm going to be blogging about. I say I think because you know ... Read more

I've mentioned the clothes sorting. I put items that belonged to the boys into a crate. When I started this process I suggested they check it daily but of course they didn't so last night I invited them to check it one final time. Naturally ... Read more
The Law of Sod
Sunday, March 05, 2017      1 comments

I wrote last weekend that maybe things were improving. The Dawn was coming as it were. Tempt fate in that way and the Law of Sod is invariably invoked - what can go wrong WILL go wrong. One evening this week, my youngest son was cooking his me... Read more
Who'd of thunk it?

Any of you reading who have seen some of my previous blogs, will be only too aware of my ongoing battle with clutter. Quite some time ago FlyLady was recommended to me. I looked. I signed up. I sort of tried it but you know, it just didn't g... Read more
Just before Dawn
Sunday, February 26, 2017      1 comments

They say its always darkest just before dawn. I'm not quite sure who 'they' are - maybe I'll investigate one day. Meanwhile, I guess I'll take what 'they' say in this instance on face value, for now. How long since you stayed up and watched t... Read more
Quick Jobs - or how to keep going.
Friday, December 16, 2016      2 comments

My 'worker friend' came for a brief visit. He'd been to visit one of his sisters and arrived here Thursday evening. Treated me to dinner [a takeaway] plus some wine. He left late afternoon Friday to meet up with friends in London. I was invit... Read more
A tale of two Countries
Tuesday, December 13, 2016      4 comments

Two and a half years ago, my daughter visited friends in America. On the flight, she was in quite a bit of pain and her mouth swelled up. When she arrived, her hosts took her to the Dr and then to the hospital/clinic. She had a mouth infectio... Read more
