Life gets tedjus don' it?


There was an old song in which that phrase cropped up. It was half humorous and the narrator sounded like a ‘hill billy’ lazily recounting all the boring things going on around him. Well, I could join him at present as I am very down in the dumps. A little bit of good weather provides a slight boost but it doesn’t last – the weather or the boost!

Our garden is so neglected and the handrails are not yet ready for installation. I doubt I shall be needing them for a while but for Roy’s sake I hope they come. If he fell again I don’t know where we should be. My left shoulder has joined his in suffering and we try to help each other cope.

A bit of good news though! On 21st we are expecting the first sighting of our No.3 Great-grandson :-) He will be a month old. His mother and brother and our daughter and husband (the Grandparents) are coming up specially to see our part of the family. We have another daughter who lives nearby and she has five children, two married and one with a little boy so it should raise our spirits. I must make an effort.

I haven’t been keeping up to date with things so I don’t know what’s happened to all you lovely people out there. I do hope things are well for you all.

Kind regards
