debris4spike: (Spike & Damon - Real vampires don't spar)
[personal profile] debris4spike
Annemarie left a week ago and what have I got to show for it?  Not much.

Still Dad is doing well, and feeling more relaxed.  Mum is slowly feeling better, as well.  Having Dad ill really "mucked" up her healing, but that seems to be slowly progressing.  I spoke to them both yesterday, and will tomorrow as they both have doctors appointments.  Jiffy has also been to the "doctors" as his skin is sore again.  I personally think he was just jealous of eveyone else!

In the last few days of my holiday last week I didn't get much done - spending time at hospital took some time, and I had actually got sun-burnt on Tuesday.  I had been in Exeter Cathedral with Claire for a couple of hours (pics to follow) .... then as I drove home I had the car window open ... and 1/2 hour later (ouch!)

On Saturday I got some gardening done for Mum & Dad and hope to get some done over the next long weekend (when not sitting in front of the TV waving my Union Flag!

Then back to work ... and it's as if I hadn't been away!  Trouble was the spare time over the last couple of days has been washing and ironing.  I had hoped to post this last night but went to Bible Study (a group I have just joined, mostly people from work, of which the rest are Philipino) ... and one had bad news over the weekend so things got extended.  So I was late for the right reasons!

Now today - I have got washing on, bread machine on and done a bit of decorating.  I now have to go out to collect some chaires for my garden that Tim & Claire have given me.

I haven't forgotten my 100 meme and will get back to that hopefully tomorrow!

On a positive note I am re-watching Vampire Diaries from the beginning and falling in love with Damon all over again (points to icon!) ... and now my Media Player is playing some good songs.

So - have I missed anything.  I won't be able to scroll back otherwise I shall get sidetracked!  So please point me in the right direction.  I shall go back this evening and answer comments .... Hope you have all had a great week.

Glad you had a good visit with Annemarie. You've been working hard since you decided to change jobs and move. It was about time you had some fun.

Happy to hear your Mom and Dad are doing better. I was afraid the strain of your Dad being ill would upset your Mom. Your vacations do sound like mine when my Mom was alive. I spent most of my vacations and days off tending to her needs. Don't wear yourself out because it's easy to do when you have loved ones who need you.

The video did not work because it was removed by youtube. Some sort of violation of their terms it seems. I do love the Village People.

Thanks Kuda - yes my holiday was fun, evene though some of it was part of making life easier for mum. I will admit it was a major worry for me when dad was in hospital, as she had been beginning to pick up. However things seem more settled for them both now.

Grrrrr - I did wonder if they would take it down ... I must try to work out if I can send the video to you then.

Enjoy the Jubilee.

Hopfully life will get back to normal for you soon. The Vampire Diaries is awesome and Damon is the best. Love his snarky attitude. Fingers crossed that I will be able to meet him over labor day weekend at Dragoncon.

Thanks - looking forward to celebrating the Queen's 60th.

Wow Damon & Spike at Dragon*Con ... what more can you ask for? Have fun (you can feel the jealousy from over here, I'm sure!)

I have done nothing of note.

Glad you're able to get back into routine. Hope Mum and Dad continue to improve!

I'm glad your parents are getting better and that you had a good holiday with your friend.

Is your Bible study non-denominational, then? What are you studying?

You didn't miss anything from me! I've been mostly absent, which seems to be my theme this year. (I did post about starting the 100 things meme but haven't made the first post yet. I think I will tonight.)

Yes mum and dad are doing well, considering their age and problems, Thank You.

The rest of the group are members of the same Church - a Pentecostal one specially for Phillipinos ... yet they have been so welcoming,a nd when I see any on the wards I am greeted with a hug. It is special for me.

I shall keep my eyes open for your 100's.
