1st - 24th. November 2008
Well, once again I have to apologize for a late entry!
I must say that a lot of this is due to making some radical changes to the background nitty gritty of the Website. Some pages haven't been touched for five years and with many alterations here and there, the coding has been going a tad skewy making pages longer to load and not very Search Engine friendly.
According to my Doc. it seems the shoulder is worse than originally thought and after five visits and two Steroid jabs I am being sent to the Consultant for a proper scan etc.
Needs be that I have had no option but to start work at the big house opposite, but at least I'm getting Leo to help me out a bit there.
Between times I've been able to get my garden in fairly good shape and cut the grass last week.
I enjoy working outside, especially if it's raining. Sitting in here is not dis-similar to being in a Tent and I enjoy smaller spaces. In fact the Shed is smaller than my Tent and I have a habit of, after about an hour, dozing off into oblivion!
The last two days have been a bit parky down here, so I've had both the Rayburn and the Sitting Room fires alight. But I only get them going at around 4pm to cut down costs. The rest of the time, if I'm indoors, is an extra jumper job.
I shall probably have a visit from the Debt Collectors soon. I parked my car in the Bank Car Park back in July and the ticket fell off the window onto the passengers seat. The Warden didn't see this and gave me a Ticket.
Sorting out Christmas this year is yet another logistical nightmare. The problem when you get on a bit, the family grows and there's so many people to try and please. In this respect I put my kids and their's as priority. It's hard not to sound like you're making everyone else 'second best', but that's how it is and with people going away as well, you have to fit it in somehow.
Until then, it's much work over the Lane and on the Website and maybe finding the time to feed the Cats between!
Life certainly is not boring, but hours and days are not long enough to squeeze all we want to into them. I think I will become a Time Lord
