Although I much prefer winter to summer I am tired of feeling off colour. That constant feeling of being blocked up and having a headache, not enough to see a doctor but just enough to annoy you.
I am really missing Blake, son number 3 who has moved to Alice Springs. Brian and I are planning on a weekend up there in August and I cannot wait. It is funny, I have gone longer than this without seeing him before, with just a call or a text, but the fact that he is a thousand or so miles away somehow makes it different, I suppose because I cannot just jump in the car and go see him.
Work is a bit up and down at the moment, one day I can’t keep up and the next is as dead as a doornail, hence I am having a day off. It is really bugging me that I am still not full-time, it has been almost two years and I am still only working four days a week most weeks. While I enjoy having a day off midweek I am missing the full-time pay packet.
Last Saturday night good friends Jo and Kate came for dinner and Brian made Apricot Chicken, he followed a recipe but he made everything himself, except the chicken 🙂 It was the best meal he has ever made, absolutely delicious. Dessert was a Lime Cheesecake that I made, we had a really good night with the girls as always.
This Friday my grandson Jayden turns seven. Jayden was born ten weeks premature, he looked like a pathetic little skun rabbit, you would not know it now, he is a wonderful and loving little boy, full of beans, and full of mischief. I adore him.
I don’t know where the years are going, my sons are all adults from their mid twenties to their mid thirties, the grandchildren are no longer babies but little people, some not so little, and I am a frumpy little middle-aged man slowly sinking into old age, and Brinn is no chicken. Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining. I still have a lot of life in me and I don’t intend to waste a second. Life is clucking good!
