Because Maurice’s week end! was Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, (he works six days, then three off so his weekends are staggered) At least he doesn’t work nights any more …. I am all behind again, so if I haven’t commented on your journal yet, I will! I don’t like to spend all my time on here when he is at home, he works twelve hour shifts so is tired, when he gets in, so our days together are precious Having said that I left him on Wednesday afternoon, when I went to my over sixties club, but I know he enjoyed the time by himself, we all need some ‘me’ time don’t we?.
I don’t know what happened to Thursday we planned to go to town but it didn’t happen, but Friday saw us in Peterborough, in the pouring rain, we did some shopping in Queens Gate (the shopping mall),then as you guessed my Marks and Spencer’s vouchers were burning a hole in my purse ,I bought a top to go with the skirt Maurice bought me for Christmas ,and a super jacket ,with a detachable fur collar ,lovely for just now and still useful in the spring ,
We then went to see Aunty Kitty, when we got there she was just sitting in her chair dozing, I held her hand and was told to “stop that”! Maurice didn’t fare any better than I, it is so sad, for such a clever lady to end her days thus ….Old age can be so cruel.
After leaving Aunty Kitty we went to see Kate, who is recovering from this awful cold that struck us all, she approved my purchases from M&S ….
Yesterday I went to our town and saw that Lavender Blue had lots of sale goodies in the window, but didn’t take a pic at the mans request,
Today I am playing catch up, alerts , washing, should be ironing, but you know how I feel about that, am going to make a trifle for Pudding tonight to eat after our Sunday dinner ,My son Mark and his wife Chrissie will be here soon ,
And then this evening,at7.40 pm on BBC1 I am looking forward to watching ‘Lark rise to Candleford’ a new ten part memoir chronicling life in 19th century Oxfordshire, by FloraThompson, When I was working I was lent the book to read by a very dear resident, who shared my love of books, and we spent many happy times chatting about what we had been reading, I rang her yesterday to tell her it is on so Ruby is looking forward to watching it too I wish you all Blessed Sunday with love ….
