I was rudely interrupted yesterday when posting by my son arriving home. I usually find that I don’t have the time to just sit down and write properly, it’s usually done in a rush. Luckily I can touch type. Today is my actual birthday and I’ve had better. Last night Jaycee Junior had a sore ear so he was crying every 15 minutes after he went to bed until about 11pm when I took him into my bed where he immediately stopped crying and had an uninterrupted sleep until about 6am this morning. Consequently I’ve felt tired all day. I had a few birthday phone calls this morning and a friend took us out to lunch which wasn’t all that relaxing looking out for who Jaycee Junior was hassling. We went to a local pub and it’s pension day so it was packed with people having their lunch too. Always a glutton for punishment we went and did some grocery shopping after that.
This afternoon I have to start packing for our week away from tomorrow, so I won’t be posting here for just over a week. Today I have also done a load of washing and mowed the lawn which couldn’t wait until I get back. Tonight my sister and a friend are coming over and we’re getting take away before we sit down to watch Kath and Kim (my Thursday night religion).
My birthday celebrations continue tomorrow night at my holiday house about an hour’s drive from Adelaide with two close friends staying with me. Saturday I’ve organised a barbeque and about eight adults are coming to that. I just hope the people bringing the actual barbeque don’t pull out otherwise I hope the grill in the oven works. Sunday night a girlfriend and her daughter are staying with me and I’ve had other friends say they will come and visit during the week. I think it will be a busy week in all, but hopefully a relaxing one. I’ve got too much stuff to do around here to stay here and relax so I’ve got to pay to get away.
Well, onto the packing.
Oh, I just remembered I didn’t talk more about the matchmaking – that will have to wait.
