This photo was taken some time last week.
Sorry I haven't posted a blog - or even checked anyone else's blogs - over the weekend. I had neither the time nor the inclination to do so. No offence, and I'm sure if you read the post I did before this one you will understand why I say that.
Some time last week (I think it was Thursday evening) I finished listening to "The Lost Years" by Evie Thompson, which was one of the audio books I borrowed from the library a little over a week ago. The story was about a man named "Peris" and what happened in his life during the first world war. It turned out to be a really good story. Very sad in places, but an enjoyable story over-all.
I didn't end up going in to town on Friday morning, because I was waiting for a phone call I couldn't afford to miss. As it turned out I would have been back in more than enough time to catch it, but I always think it's best to be safe than sorry in situations like that. I had considered going in later, but as the phone call never came until about 5:00 pm it was too late by that time.
And - talking of Friday - the rain I said would come because I had plans to do some washing DID come. It stayed nice long enough for me to get a load washed and on the line. The stuff was drying nicely too. And then... The rain came down so suddenly and heavily the stuff was soaked before I could get to it. Kero and I had just started out on a walk when it started to rain. That plan was quickly aborted however, since Kero does NOT go walkies in the rain. He loves to go for walks, but not enough to put up with getting wet. We barely got out of the gate before he turned tail and headed back for home. I can't say I wasn't eager to follow him either. LOL!
Saturday was lovely though, so Mam and I started to tidy up the garden. We cut the grass (though, because it had been left so long it needs to be done again so it's actually done properly) and that sort of thing. Still a ways to go, but it's a start. :)
We'd planned on watching "Alvin And The Chipmunks" after "I'd Do Anything" and "Britain's Got Talent" were finished, but we never got to it. I'd said if we didn't watch it then I'd watch it by myself today (Monday) but I didn't end up doing that either. *Shrugs* Oh, well. I'll just watch it some other time.
Tomorrow I'm having my blood pressure checked again, and Wednesday the carpets are coming, so we had to make a start on getting stuff out of the way for the carpets to be put down today. Between my appointment with the nurse and the fact Kelly needs to go in to town and get some shopping done our time for getting stuff out of the way is limited. And, the carpet man is coming at about 10:00 am Wednesday morning, so without getting up with the sun we don't have much time to do anything before he comes Wednesday.
OK, well... I think that's all I wanted to say.
Well, apart from wishing our friends Jackie and Denise belated happy birthdays. Jackie's was April 26th (Saturday) and Denise's was April 27th (Sunday). So, a belated but very happy birthday wish to both of you. :)
