It was snowing when we woke up this morning, but it was a tentative, amateur sort of snow and it slunk away during the morning. No more is forecast here, so it seems that I won’t build my snowman this year. I don’t mind too much, I’m getting ready, in my mind, for spring. We really should get our act together and have a winter holiday next year, but we’re not too good at proper, staying in a hotel, going away holidays. Life is just one big holiday for the LTZs.
It was cold though, and I used that, and not having slept last night, as an excuse for not getting much done. I should be busier than I am, and I could be, but I’ve had enough of daily juggling of my time and prioritising, and reprioritising daily, the list of things to do. I want to relax more whilst not being totally lazy, which isn’t too easy at this time of the year.
Wink and Dee phoned this morning. I’m so pleased – Wink has to go home tomorrow and we were both a bit anxious about Dee managing on her own, though she has got someone there in the evening and overnight. But Wink has invited Dee back with her. We thought it couldn’t be managed because Dee has a physiotherapy appointment on Thursday, but she’s been able to put it back a week and there is nothing else to stop her. The extra few days will make all the difference, and Wink’s house is easier to get about than Dee’s is. It’ll be perfect, especially as a very old friend – in both senses – of Dee’s lives in Shaftesbury and she can visit her on her 90th birthday this week.
Next week – the day hasn’t been arranged yet – Wink is coming here and then the whole family will visit on Saturday week. As you know, there’s nothing I love more than having a full house and lots of people to feed and it’s also a great pleasure that all my children and grandchildren enjoy getting together.
This punk does, indeed, feel lucky.
