This and That

The crazy news flash last evening,was as a result of a phone call I recieved from Catherine (Kate ),She had spoken to me a couple of days prior ,and indicated it might happen, but as soon as it was official ,I felt I had to let you know,since weve been in on it from nearly the beginning ,so to speak ,Im quite excited now ,looking forward to seeing him on the programme ,Kate said if she thought hed get on with Maddy hed definitely be coming home with her , Oh dear now arent we all surprised !!.

I had a phone call from my boss ,yesterday ,she wants me to do some cover at the court I was at the  week  before last ,The manager there is leaving the court to manage an "extra sheltered"accomadation,soon to be opened by the company,So until the new manager starts in December ,I look as though I shall be busy,it does my morale good to keep being called back,Its a year now since I retired ,and the money is nice especially this time of year !So Ive got till next Tuesday to get my self organised  .Now that is a laugh I dont do organised..........though on reflection I suppose I must do to a certain extent ,but certainly not on the scale my Mother did ,she religiously kept to a routine,each day had its own set of tasks ,that just had to be done whatever ,so I suppose Im rebelling in a small way ,but of course Mum never worked full time so its a different life style, different times, there wasnt any of the "labour saving gadgets",so all day could be spent ,for instance washing . So I suppose its not really fair to compare is it ? So on that happy note ............ 

     Have a good one ................Jan xx

I am still not sure who Dodger is and what he does, can you explain. Well, good luck to him anyway.  Great news on the job, wish I had a way of making extra money for Christmas.

Yes it is nice to feel wanted when you retire. My job was getting too much for me with heavy lifting and standing all day I really needed to leave.  Hope you have a nice day and enjoy going back for a few weeks. Love Joan.

Hope Kate does bring Dodger home ;o)
We'd all miss him now if he went to another home!!
Glad you got called back to work for a few weeks, extra money is always handy this time of year isn't it!

My mum had a routine which was strictlyn adhered to. Strange how life has changed isn't it? I'd get so bored if I had a routine at home, things get done when they need doing. Jeannette.  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels

Right now, I'm looking forward to retiring, but I wonder if I'll change my mind when the time comes? It's good that you look forward to going back and as you say, the money is always handy! Hope you enjoy it.

Ugh I'm not very organised either - unless I have to be.  Today I had to be coz my mates coming round tomorrow and the flat has to be relatively clean ;-) your right though totally different times.  I forgot all about the paul o grady show :-(

I think you're organised Jan..........and well thought of to be asked to help out.  You will be a busy bee for a while, but worth it. Rache xx
