Well...

For those of you who are my friends on Facebook, you might have seen me wanting a hug. And I really needed one yesterday. I mean really! Nothing to do with the loneliness or the long hours or anything like that. But something to do with work. 

Let's just say my normally quiet route wasn't so quiet yesterday and after I had arrived in Glasgow I had to phone the office to give an account of what had happened. The person I phoned was extremely helpful and good, but sometimes you just need a hug!

Anyhow. 

In other news: today I worked a short shift, driving a bunch of school kids all of ten minutes to their destination and in the afternoon I drove them back again. Easy, simple and quiet. As I was home early, I could get some things done for tomorrow. Like getting the guest room ready for my parents. After a bit of deliberation, my sister and I decided to let my parents stay at my place. My sister doesn't mind driving every day, which is good, since her car holds four people okay, mine does not. 

Mind you, there were a few options about where my parents would stay during their holiday here in NI. At my sister's. At mine. One there, one here and change half way through. In the end as I said, they will be at mine, but if I do get fed up with them (ahem), I could always relocate to my sister's for the duration. It's good to have options!

Anyhow. 

Right now though, I will put myself in front of the television and take up my knitting. I have one mouse nearly complete and the other one is finished with the knitting part, but also needs to be put together. And one of those is an order I got from a lady in the office (for two)! Yoohoo!

Bye...

  1. This sounds ominous. Nothing too very serious, I hope.

  2. Oh Mara .... I, like Anvilcloud, hope it was nothing too serious. I'm sure you will enjoy having your parents come to stay but it is good to have options.

    1. I forgot to add - I love your header of snapdragons!! I loved these as a kid and I have just recently introduced my Granddaughters to the delight of them snapping on their little fingers and noses. These and sweet peas bring back many happy memories of my young days. They are not as popular as they were once. There was a time when every backyard had a bed of snapdragons and a trellis of sweet peas. I call my Charlie my Sweet pea.

    2. It will be strange having them stay here. The last time they both stayed with me was in 2013! A long time ago.
