I’ll get my good news in first this week – I got the job! They called me on Friday and offered me an admin job in the cash office, minimum of 20 hours. The days / hours have to be confirmed and the pay isn’t wonderful but it’s a step in the door and better than having the zero income we have as the moment.
My second news – all the blood tests came back OK, one of the tests had a raised level so will have to be repeated but nothing to be concerned about. The lightheadness when I look up has been put down to a bit of arthritis in my neck that may be pressing a blood vessel. So ladies when you are in labour and the midwife says don’t push into your neck… I slipped a disc giving birth to my second son and it wasn’t picked up for over 6 months, so the damage was already in progress.. 30 years later it’s still haunting me.. ah well could be worse!!
Anyway – onto the past week.
Sunday – Time to cut the conifer hedging. Hubby now has a petrol trimmer which is better than having cables trailing. Lots of exercise for him up and down the ladders. He’s a wreck when he’s finished!
Monday – Short walk around the village – someone had fly tipped tyres, looks like they came from a large vehicle too.
Tuesday – We didn’t do much today – pottered about the house.
Wednesday – Orange Wednesday this week – LUCY – about a young woman who takes a drug that increases the capacity of your brain and makes it work to 100%. A film to switch off your own brain to ignore the plot holes – why was no one else affected? what the heck was the ending about?? It was ok but if you want to see a similar film watch Limitless which is far better.
Thursday – Took some pots on our walk with the intention of getting a lot more blackberries but we only managed enough to make a small crumble for tea. Most of them have been picked or are turning mouldy.
Friday – Our local Pensioners housing is being renovated. The paint was peeling off the walls and they weren’t well insulated. The council has fitted new windows, new insulation and skimmed the exterior walls, replaced the roof and fitted solar panels. The bungalows are looking very smart now and it’s good know the residents will be warm and cosy every winter.
Saturday – Walked along the main road for a longer walk to the local shop. The local brown road-sign always makes me smile – Historic Square.. you can walk around it in under 5 minutes. Not exactly worthy of a tourist sign – in my humble opinion.
This weeks pictures in 3 bites.
Before and after renovations.
