Hi my lovely little peeps! Hope you're all doing well, and survived the new year's celebrations. Mine was very sedate - hee hee! That's quite a nice word, isn't it, "sedate!". Definition - Serenely deliberate, composed and dignified in character or manner. There you are then, that's me to a tee!!
My daughters would very soon tell you that 'serene' I am not. I am usually rushing around like a bull in a china shop and, apparently, getting stressed out. I hasten to add that I never feel that I am stressed - I think I just rush around a lot and leave everyone else feeling frazzled!!
I also worry about silly things, like, "will I find a parking space?" So, my little bloggy friends, this is the "new me" writing this little missive. One that will NOT try to do everything, and who will NOT get impatient if someone else doesn't do it right away!
Emma (daughter in France) thinks that perhaps this could be the cause of some of my skin problems, so it's certainly worth giving it a go, don't you think?!
This morning, I have taken down all the decorations and, instead of heaving them all up into the loft, I have them them at the top of the stairs, ready for hubby to put them away. I have also sent him up the shop for some shopping. Hubby doesn't 'do' shopping, so I am quietly sat here chuckling away to myself! When I had my two serious back operations, he used to be up at the Supermarket for over two hours, with his little list. One time, he was gone for hours, and it turned out that he had searched the shop several times for peach rolls. What I had actually written down was peach T. Rolls - i.e peach toilet rolls!!
Well, the family left first thing this morning on their journey back to France. It's quite a while in the car. They left at 8 a.m. and will arrive home at around 5 p.m. The car was absolutely packed to the rafters - AND they had a top box on the roof which was full up. Mind you, if they will insist on buying a 51" television in the sale, what can they expect?! For a minute, it looked as if either Eleanor or Alfred would have to be left behind! I'm just hoping that they don't have to have a comfort stop, because when they open the doors, everything will just fall out, that's how much they have in there!! The house is very quiet again now - AND empty!!
I'm always glad to get the text to say that they have arrived home safely.
'Bye for now. Take care ....
