Thoughts of a middle aged man…..31 May 2013

It’s the last day of Autumn and it has been bucketing down all night here in North Haven, not that I am complaining, it is better to have a little too much rain than not enough. Winter tomorrow, lets hope Mother Nature fills up our reservoirs for the Summer.

I am glad to see this week over, what a bummer of a week it has been. How did my working week finish, two new corporations for me to manage, that is three new ones for the week. Surely with these I will have to go to five days, what a shock to my system that will be until I get used to it. That means my weekends will be busier as well, as all the things I have been doing on my Wednesday off will then have to fit into my weekend as well.

My 10-year-old grandson Cody is finally asleep in the next room. I love this little boy more than life as I do all my grandchildren, and over the years due to circumstances Cody has spent more time with us than any of the others, and yet for some strange reason he no longer enjoys staying overnight. He gets all excited at the thought but once he is here he just cries for his mother and wants to go home, I never thought I would get him to settle tonight. Mind you I had to promise to sleep with him so Papa will not get much sleep tonight.

Cody did enjoy making pancakes for dinner and then we sat down to watch A Bug’s Life. These computer animated kids movies are truly amazing, at times they can appear so lifelike, the technology is wonderful.

You know what else is amazing, it is amazing that I am still functioning I am so tired. Goodnight and thank you for reading.

Thoughts of a middle aged man…..17 March 2013

Brian and I were treated to a glorious sight tonight, after turning the sprinklers on in our front yard we were inundated by 150-200 white cockatoos, all keen for a drink and a bath. It was just like being back in the country, there were so many cockatoos in the Norfolk Island Pines over the road they looked like decorations on a Xmas tree, just one little problem, they make so much damn noise.

I’ve had a lazy day today, Brian spent most of the afternoon at work so I took the time to read my book, do some washing, catch up on the most recent episode of The Last Resort, and cooked a lovely evening meal. I don’t know what everyone else thinks but last week’s episode of The Last Resort was one of the most violent things I have ever seen on television, I was completely shocked by the storyline, but the acting was wonderful.

I remembered something today that my granddaughter Jade did yesterday that brought a smile to my dial. As we were taking her home she sat in the back seat of the car counting, she went very well until she hit thirty, it went like this, twenty-seven, twenty-eight, twenty-nine, and then…..twenty ten. She is so cute.

I have just come upstairs from watching Downton Abbey, one of my favourite television shows and tonight’s episode was no exception. During one of the ad breaks my thoughts went back to my last day in business in Clayton Bay, one of the most emotional days of my life. I hate it when my head does this to me, why can’t I just put it all behind me and get on with things.

Brian’s back is only mildly improved today, I am not sure how he will cope tomorrow as he has a day studying for his Diploma in Business Management. He simply can’t sit down all day, he has to get up every thirty minutes or so and move or he will be in an even worse state. Funny last week his specialist said he was pleased with how the last procedure went, I can’t see it myself, Brian is still in constant pain and can hardly walk at times, surely it must get better than this for him.

A busy week this week, starting with a late one tomorrow night. Goodnight for now and thank you for reading.
