Reasons to be A W O L

Well the last couple of weeks have been crazy here,as I said Maurice had a few days off so decided to,laminate the floors in the lounge ,hall and this little room (the study ),fine until we learned the order would not be ready until the Friday so,whilst I finished up the ironing (so that we wouldnt be moving it around in its basket!) and doing abit of organized!clearing ,off he went to collect the flooring and everything else involved ,So that meant from a week last Friday till yesterday every where has been organised chaos here .Maurice went back to work on the Monday and has been doing as much as he can whenever he could ever since.Hes had yesterday and today off so its now more or less finished ,thank goodness ,though now I have to say it looks lovely hes made a good job ,I will post some pics when I find the battery charger for the camera!! I went to a tenants participation meeting on Saturday , which was fun ,I joined in a couple of workshops ,but spent most of the day networking  I now know so many more people with visiting, so many different courts over the holiday period ,I went to one today ,and Im going again on Thursday and Friday.So Im not able to stay at home to enjoy the new floor,and play house rearranging things again .Never mind "one day" ! Maurice is of till tomorrow so he took me to work  today ,so I didnt have to worry about buses . On our way home we called in to see Aunty Kitty ,who was pleased to see us , we got chatting to one of the careers ,remember I told you the house used to be the convent ,well this young lady was showing us were the original house was ,I asked her if shed ever seen any thing ,she said on two occasions ,yes the first was a nun in blue and the second all in white ,when I asked her how she felt ,she said calm and peaceful ,isnt that lovely ?         Well I ,think thats me more or less up to date,talking of dates its now November !did you say Rabbits this morning          With love Jan xx

I bet the floors are smashing Jan, it's always nice when a job is finished, such mess whilst it's all going on.  I thought you only said white rabbits in months without an r in them, but white rabbits to you as well. Rache xx

Glad you got your floors finished, now you can put things to rights and enjoy them. Oh, by the way to see where we fish you would have to look back in archives. We don't fish in the little pond. That is only some backed up water in a little slueth across from where we fish. I liked the pictures though. Helen
