MY WORD OF THE WEEK.
This week has passed by so fast that I even forgot it was Friday. So apologies if you arrived here too early for my #WOTW to published. You may have noticed my earlier, quickly scribbled post as I tried to catch up before the school run.
Last weekend was my brother’s birthday which went really well with a lovely family meal in the pub. Unfortunately, the rest of the weekend was a wash out (in more ways that one with all that rain.) It’s strange but when you are a teenager and you go out on a Saturday night and get drunk, then it seems quite reasonable to spend Sunday in bed recovering. Sadly, I’m not a teenager, I didn’t get drunk (the meal was in the afternoon.) And I didn’t want to spend the rest of the weekend recovering.
On Monday we went to look at new cars. We’d hoped to get a 7 seater, but the one we wanted (or could afford) was the Ford CMax and they are being discontinued. The only other two we could afford were either like a huge van or hybrid. Graham wasn’t so keen on having a hybrid and he’s the main driver, and we didn’t want a huge van type car which would guzzle the petrol. We only need the extra seats a few times a year so it just didn’t seem an economical choice. So we ended up sticking with 5 seats and have ordered a Ford Kuga, which we should receive in September. The last three years since we had the Skoda have gone so fast.
We also had two different lots of shopping delivered on Monday. I couldn’t get everything I needed from one shop, so I had to split between two supermarkets. It was a pain, but I didn’t want to have to go to the shops so it seemed faster to make two separate online orders.
On Tuesday it was Boo’s school Band Musicianship performance. I love that the school takes the Band Musicianship so seriously and it’s amazing to see the children perform. This years ‘gig’ was a lot faster than last years though. I’m sure we were there well past the end of school, but this year it was all over with half hour to spare.
We also had a new mattress delivered. It’s better than the last mattress which was over eight years old so needed replacing. But, I was kind of hoping for a miracle where I’d wake up in the morning in less pain. Sadly that hasn’t happened and I’m not getting out of bed any faster.
Wednesday, Graham managed to do some more decorating in the living room. It’s coming along, but certainly not as fast as I would like it to be. We also had some new bars fitted in the bathroom to make life easier for me.
Thursday went past so fast. Graham did a lot more work in the living room. We’ll get it done one day I’m sure. I did some pottering around, probably too much, and I wore myself out. I ended up having an early night and it was 2 am when I woke and remembered I’d not written this post! I tried to get it up as fast as possible this morning.
