All is quiet here apart from the sound of me sniffing and sneezing with hayfever. I may have to take a tablet! Am going into Bury St Edmunds today to meet Rory for lunch and he is going to help me choose some new glasses. Its hard getting them by yourself especially when you cant see!!He is still enjoying working in the bank and \i really cant see him leaving to go to uni , still so long as hes happy I only hope he doesnt regret it in years to come.
Harry came in from school the other day with "good news and bad news". The good news is theres a skiing trip next year at school, the bad news is hes told everyone we can't afford it!!! Thanks very much Harry!!I must admit it is quite expensive but as I told him I am sure you can pay in installments! Will I be able to let my baby go away for a week I wonder, it doesnt seem to bother him.
Cant think of much other news to tell you, the Police are looking into my complaint about "The Rave", they must think I am a right old busy body! Helped some friends of my Mums move on Saturday, which was quite sad for them. He unfortunatley had diabetic complications which has meant he has had to have both legs amputated below the knee, she is also unwell too. They moved into an adapted bungalow just over the road from their old house, still its surprising how much stuff is accumulated over 50 years of marriage. They have no children but have always treated my brother and myself (and our children) as part of their family so it was a pleasure to help them, I only hope they get on OK.
I dont think I have said much about my family have I? My father died very suddenly 5 years OK which was a big shock. I have two brothers both younger than me , one of which is mentally handicapped. He still lives with my Mum and we try to help with him as much as possible. It does make my mothers life very hard though especially as she suffers from arthritis in her knees quite badly. Julian has a large family , he has 5 brothers and sisters, so in total Harry and Rory have 12 cousins at last count.
Well thats enough of our family tree for today. Am going to get dresses, take out J and S in th sunshine and go off shopping. Have a great week folks Louise
