I’m not going to fuss about the Hon Sec situation. The AGM is at the end of March, but the next meeting is in October and, if the worst happens and I don’t have anyone to take over from me this spring (I think someone will come along) then there’s another chance in the autumn. Not fussing is best.
Having said that, I had a bit of a heart to heart with Wink this evening that made me cry – again. I’m afraid the waterworks have been turned on all too much of late. In this instance, it was age-related…I’m approaching the age at which my father died. If I live to the 25th March (disregarding Leap Years, I haven’t done the math, as they say) I’ll have outlived my father. This gives me no feeling of satisfaction, rather the opposite. Wink said the same: that she was very aware of her age at that time. We both adored him and he died far too young. I’m so grateful that she was able to share my feelings and wish she’d been able to say the same a few years ago, though I don’t know if I’d have quite understood. Maybe some of you do.
Gus, in the last week, has gone from walking if you held his hand, and crawling for the sake of speed otherwise, to choosing to walk and being thrilled by the ability, in the week since I saw him last. He’s such a cheerful little boy, great fun. His big sister is the same – very happy to have won one of the weekly class awards, the one for being kind and friendly and generally helpful (Angel), for the third time. She’s won the one for hard work and progress (Diamond) once, there’s the biggest award (can’t remember what it’s called) that she hasn’t won yet but, her birthday being at the end of August, she’s the youngest in the school and it’s marvellous that she’s getting on so well and is happy.
Weeza and Phil’s car was in the garage for a service today and they’d explained they had an appointment at 4.30 so it was vital the car was returned by 4 at latest. 5.15 it was returned, what a good job that I was there so they could use my car. I have Weeza as a named driver, but she’d have been 3rd party insured anyway. Not that the garage knew that. Pfft.
