Good morning Everyone ,another sunny day ,like the bright sunny graphic kindly made by Chris ,I'm doing this entry a bit earlier today ,Maurice, still on holiday, has gone off early to meet Pete ,my brother in law ,at some fishing lakes,Jean my sister is coming over later to spend the day with me ,Pete and Maurice will come back here later where we will all have dinner (dont know yet what we will have )Jean and I will spend the day ,doing whatever it is sisters do ,when they get together mainly chatting ,Ithink !
Maurice and I had a busy day yesterday ,we went to Peterborough ,first to the fishing equipment shop ,to buy various stuff he needed for today ,including hooks ,oh and he bought a new pod he'd been after (for resting rods on !) and some baits including maggotts !
We then went to see Aunty Kitty ,who was asleep when we got there ,as we woke her she gave us a lovely smile ,she is gently confused ,so we made conversation ,best we could ,the topic she hit on yesterday was school ! Where did we go to school ?Itold her where I went ,but of course it meant nothing to her ,then Maurice told her the name of his school ,and her face lit up , 'good school with the Sisters?',Yes says Maurice pulling a face at me ,some of them had been ,well ....very strict ! He then asked her where she went ,could she remember ?She tried a few things then ,her face lit up ,and she says ....in her genteel Irish accent 'I went to Heffing school ..and thats near Heffing church ',with a wicked sparkle in her eye ,we still see the remains of her sense of humour ,wonder how many times she has cracked that little joke ?Heffing (not sure if its spelt with an H ) is a little village near Limmerick ,in Ireland ,where she was brought up .Before she grew up ,and came to England ,and went on to become a nurse and eventually a Matron ,and now she is a confused little lady .living out her days in a nursing home ,but where I was pleased to note the room was pleasantly cool ,in comparison to the searing heat outside ,and they all had cool drinks by their side ,and cups of tea were being served as we left .
Our next port of call was to pop in to see Kate and the boys who are now on holiday ,from school ,after a coffee for me and a cup of tea for Maurice ,and a natter of course .We then went on to see Maurices brother Mike and Jackie his wife ,Mike had been painting up stairs (in this weather !)we could hear Dean Martin singing to him as he worked !,so after catching up with all the family news ,we left for home ,then after dinner I caught up ,with all my alerts ,whilst watching tele out of the corner of my eye (good at multi tasking me !)and before retiring ,we....yes you've guessed it, watered the garden,....and so on that happy note I will wish you all a very nice day with love from .....
