See this face, well that’s how I look for real. All out of flunter. If you’ve missed recent events, here’s a recap.
1. Found a lovely retirement flat for my 89 year old mum.
2. There’s a water burst before she moves in.
3. Morning of move there’s another burst but we move anyway, paddling through the hallway.
4. Three days later there is major flooding. Mum moves back out to her old house that we are due to sell.
5. One of my dearest friends dies.
Fast forward what feels like months but is in fact less than a fortnight and one of mum’s oldest friends dies unexpectedly. They’ve been friends since they were 18.
Oh I’ve not finished yet. On my way home from a catch up with my bestie and what we call our “lost & weary” club, my car clutch pedal snaps and the car is stuck half in the garage and half on the narrow country lane we live on, narrowly missing the side of the garage wall by an inch.
After the heart palpitations calmed down I rang the nice green flag man who arrived a short time later and gulped when he saw how close it was to the wall.
What a good chap he managed to bump it into the garage without any further damage. After a short consultation with the nice man the wandering welder said he would be able to repair it. - Sunday night update : It’s not fixed yet. It needs a new pedal.
Honestly could you make all this up. I doubt it. One day I’m sure I’ll laugh at this lot. It was far more peaceful during the pandemic.
Did I mention that I’ve had to cancel all holidays and events in June in order to get Mum settled back in her new flat at some point. Keep your fingers crossed folks that things work out for the better now and there’s no more drama.
(From 2018 morning our Chester meet up)
I’m so sorry Sue, Ann & Jos, Vix & Jon, Tina & Gav and all the lovely ladies in our No Rules Textile Society that we won’t get to meet up as planned. With a lot of luck we will be spending some time at our caravan in the lakes with a beer or two for company. The season started on the 1st March and we haven’t been there yet.
I’m looking forward to the days when I will be able to blog some good stuff.
Thanks for sticking with me
In the meantime there’s two funerals, more meetings with contractors, carpet fitters, a mammoth amount of paperwork to get through, more phone calls and yet another house move and house sale to get through.
Sounds like a script for a sitcom
