Finally Friday

It's Friday & I've well and truly hit the wall. I'm too tired to do any sewing tonight, hopefully I'll get some done tomorrow.

Norah has been to gym club, had tea & is asleep in the spare bed & my L&M is in our bed, reading his kindle.

It's been a stressful week, my L&M isn't coping well with the news about his Mum & I'm bearing the brunt, he manages in public, but at home, in private, he's struggling & this makes him very snappy, most days I can't even breath without causing an upset. He is gradually improving.

I went out yesterday after work to hear a speaker, Richard Sandford of Lower Lovett Farm, fascinating talk about organic gardening & food preservation.

I arrived at work today to find that the courtyard outside my room had been trashed yet again, mud & stones everywhere. This is our so called 'Gardening Club' but is, in effect, a group of teenagers playing mud pies. I always end up clearing it up when I can't stand looking at the mess any longer. I've emailed the relevant people & have been ignored as usual.

Just to make my week complete, our we have been told we are having mid year appraisals next week, so more joy on the way!

Sorry to hear it has been such a stressful week for you - and very sad about your MIL. Unfortunate that you are getting the worst of it - hopefully the L&M will get over at least the initial shock and be able to cope a bit better.
Try to have a peaceful weekend.

I am sorry you have had a stressful week, lets hope it improves next week (don't hold your breath)!!

Having had cancer myself I know how it can affect the family, but hopefully L&M will come to terms with it, especially when MIL starts her treatment.

Hugs to you both

Thank yo all for your comments, hubby is gradually improving.
My stock reply to the appraisal will be 'where's my training' I was promised training & it hasn't happened, my line manager gave me a book on Thursday about one of the programmes I need training on. I shall try to treat it as a game & see if I can hang on for a bit longer.

First date

We've moved from the marina today, we are near Ufton, moored on the edge of a field with cows in. We reached a lock just as another bo...
