Today, I went to a hundredth birthday party. Florence’s birthday was actually on Saturday, and so far she has had a small family party, one for sixty people and this one, which her lunch club friends put on for her. She looked fabulous. She walks without a stick and doesn’t wear glasses. She lives in a nursing home in the Cathedral Close but, apart from having her meals prepared for her, she can look after herself entirely – although, because she recently fell in her room and broke her wrist, she isn’t taking her normal daily walk (uphill) to the city centre for morning coffee at Jarrolds at present.
I’ve remembered the finer points of Jimmy’s look-see. In fact, that was what he said. Not “I’ll take a look see”, but “Jimmy will take a look-see,” which was the reason the expression stuck. Glad to have got that one cleared up. I will come back with more family sayings before long, I’ll start it off and add yours as they come in – excellent ones already, thank you.
Weeza will bring Zerlina over in the morning. She can come with me to the hairdresser, then we will have lunch and then do our cooking. Not quite sure how Sunday will work at present as I have to go to church twice (I’m not that devout, it’s duty calling) and I think that Grandpa will have to be roped in to help out. Phil and Weeza will come for lunch, assuming that the baby hasn’t put in an appearance by then. He has turned back to front, unfortunately – or rather front to front – he’s correctly upside down but facing the wrong way so Weeza is uncomfortable.
