What a day

What a day. I left home at 7 this morning, taking CHS to work, then I dropped one of the grandchildren at school. From there I went to the Drs to collect a prescription, it hadn't been issued despite me ordering it a week ago. I now have to go back tomorrow for it.
Next I parked my car and caught the first of 2 buse to get to Royal Berks hospital to get a hearing aid repaired.  That's when the problems really started.  There was a suspect package found in the Oracle.  The Oracle was evacuated and roads around it closed.  It took me four hours to get to the hospital and back.
I then had to collect CHA from work. We then had to move the boat as we were on a 48 hour mooring. Only we couldn't find anywhere to moor in any of our usual places  .
Eventually we found a space and moored up. I'm now waiting for a train that will take me to collect my car. There is an hour and a half wait. Hopefully I'll get back to the boat before 10pm.
Tomorrow I get to do it all over again but without the hospital visit.
Oh and I haven't eaten since 6. 30 this morning

And this is supposed to be retirement?? I even now am the same - I often wonder how I ever managed to hold down an important teaching post.

I think you deserve something much stronger than a cup of tea when you get home from a day like this! Hopefully things will go more smoothly tomorrow!

I'm sure I remember you saying you were worried that you wouldn't have enough to do once you retired!

Still not stressed? x

Knackered, but not really stressed, CHS was having a fit of the vapours but that's not unusual.

It's supposed to rain tomorrow so after a visit from DD and the grandchildren we moved on. First of all we had to wind, and we did it ...
