general catch-up

It's been a while since I last blogged - not for any more reason than that the days have been full and gone by quickly, but without any great epiphany or unique achievement. I suppose that's not such a bad thing, although I'm loathe to write in depth about the same thing all the time.

I attended another Jude rehearsal on Saturday afternoon, for example - this time taking Christopher along. He enjoyed hearing the songs, although there was still plenty of space for him to do his own thing away from the loud music.

On days I've not been working, we have also visited Woodside a few times, and made the best of any good weather by visiting the park - I try not to have a day where we don't go out at least somewhere.

Christopher with hat and cheeky expressionElla with hat and gingerbreadBeth's Grandma's been in hospital since Monday, finally having a long-awaited hip replacement; Beth has been sorting out visitations of her Grandpa, so Christopher and I walked the three miles across town to meet her at her parents - quite an impressive feat for a five-and-a-half year old. Here are a couple of photos of our two scamps on the decking.. bless 'em.

Grandma (or Joan), incidentally, has had her operation, and is recovering well, which is a real blessing.

The only other matter of note is that I received a reply to my letter about the coach timetable changes from the MD of Arriva - it's a bit wordy, explaining that hardly anyone uses those stops, and they've managed to weave in some ambiguous "we're going to have to increase fares, too" nonsense too. All in all not that satisfactory, but the drivers are being kind; if there's nobody else on, they tend to drop me off where I used to go... just like the good old days!

Enough from me, for now, I think. Tomorrow's a day off, and then I'm only working on Friday. There's a strike starting at midnight on Sunday, too, and I'm covering the nightshift (the extra payment will help with the prospective dental bills) which unfortunately scuppers the trip down to see Mother with Christopher - such a shame. Still, we've managed to reschedule to the week after (and hopefully the weather will have improved!)
