Dear So-And-So, the children's edition
Dear Adorable Boy-Child, We're heading into rough waters, you and I.  Every year has been uncharted territory - you are the oldest child I've raised, the oldest grandchild, I am the oldest of my family and I had never thought of having children until sudden...

Dear Old Me....
Dear Old Me, For reasons best known to myself, I've just read back over July 2009.  For reasons best known to blogger, this is done backwards.  I'm sitting here in my front room now, listening to the dishwasher, and reading, and thinking. I know it seems ho...

It's all going well so far....
Well, I've done it. I've applied for the job I never thought I would apply for, I've filled in the forms, got the references and done it.  I have had an acknowledgement of the application. All I have to do now is wait. Wait. We know I'm not good at waiting ...

I have two knees....
This is true. This is something to be happy about, having watched things like the Invictus Games and so on, programmes about those indomitable men and women who have come back from The Abroad (as we knew it) and yet left part of themselves behind. Shortly, ...

Distance
Once again we are approaching the Armistice, and once again I can feel the distance developing between me and the rest of the world.  I am less concerned with the petty things than I would usually be.  I make sure things are done because I am not interested...

Delay in posting
It's been a while since I've posted on here. My mother told me, when I was small, that if I couldn't say nice, then don't say anything at all.  That's more or less why I haven't written on here.  After the post on betrayal, I was so angry, so hurt, and for ...

When the soaps are like real life....
J is an avid watcher of soap operas.  Things like Corrie, and Emmerdale. Emmerdale has, this week, had me in tears.  (Bear with me if you aren't a soaps watcher.) One of the female actresses is pregnant and has to go on maternity leave, therefore her charac...

There is a change going through my house/life/soul at the moment. Several things are going on which I am completely happy with. One I'm not mentioning until I get somewhere.  If I get somewhere.  It involves a job application....... The other, more importan...

It was a long wait. It was almost 5 weeks, in which things took longer than we thought, and we began to despair of ever seeing Brian on our drive ever again. (Yes, that's melodramatic.  We didn't realise how much we would mis...
