Can,t complain ie Young Grandson woke up once during the Night JUST TO ASK WHERE HE WAS AND WHERE HIS MUM AND DAD WERE once he got his answer fell back to sleep again and slept till Seven o Clock, kept us busy this Morning but we still managed our Duties , Wife first on her Taxie Run and Tescos, then Toast and Cuppa Time and then my turn Dog Run, he was picked up at Two o Clock and stated he,d had a great Time and looking forward to the next hmmmmm.
Did a bit more than Yesterday but not much, called down to Daughters to see to Dogs while she and Hubbie and a couple of Family were moving her Salon Furniture to new Premises, i actually called in and helped move a couple of Items, thankfully the heavy Rain had eased off plus it was only a couple of minutes away from new Premises, but a lot of Ruddy Stairs to go up, MY GOOD DEED FOR THE DAY.
After my Walkabout i helped wife with what she called the last cut of the Year ie Lawn, hmmmm i would,nt put a bet on it, then she had me check a couple of the Gutterings BE CAREFUL BOB YOU KNOW YOUR UNSAFE WITH THAT HAND OF YOURS, if that being the case why did she mention the cost of someone coming in to do it, she knows i,ll perservere with anything to avoid opening my almost empty Wallet.
Wife was altering her BT Account Today due to getting a new Mobile Phone which was not BT, She spent half an hour on phone explaining what we had and what we did,nt need, they were going to charge her more not less hence the Half hour of explaining and what she thought RESOLVING, at the end the Lady stated I,LL JUST PUT YOU THROUGH TO OUR OTHER DEPT WHO WILL UPLOAD IT, suddenly theres a Chap on Phone asking YES CAN I HELP YOU, Wife explains what she,s already resolved, I,M SORRY BUT I CANNOT UNDERSTAND WHY YOU,VE BEEN PUT THROUGH TO ME , thought Wife was going to burst a blood vessel. She had to go through it all again, Another half an hour on Phone, again thought resolved, gets a Text this Afternoon SAME RUDDY PRICE, come to the conclusion that Firms such as BT only like making Money and try to Baffle those poor Customers trying to Save Money plus cause stress to Telephone User AND IF WIFE GETS STRESS SHE LUVVES SHARING IT hence THANKS BT.
Made me laugh or was it grrr with that PPI Kim, it,s like getting blood out of a stone, they state no records but i,ll bet when it comes to claiming money back from us mere Mortals, they,ll be quick to produce Paperwork from many Years ago, they know the info is there but have an Office that is purely for DELAY hoping you,ll go away and forget, another grrrrr. Nice Day here in Cleckie hence a nice Walk with Youngest Daughter and Dogs, then a walkabout Town while Daughter went to get us Fresh Sarnies from indoor Market, some great updated going on around Cleckie, nice to see.
Everyone has records of us going back to the dark ages, Bob, but only when it suits their purpose. Ask them to find something for our convenience and is simply doesn't exist. The favourite delaying tactic is to pass you to someone who claims no knowledge and apologises when they have to pass you on to someone else, with exactly the same result. Good game, and if you let them play it, it can take all day !!!! Good to know you had a nice day in Cleckie anyway.
I,m hoping all Maturies on Page are in good Health, OR AT LEAST HAVING MORE DAYS OF SUNSHINE THAN CLOUD, we seem to be travelling through Time very fast once the Retirement Age Chips in and it,s Days we should be enjoying and making the most of.Sadly as we know Ailments and Health Problems can arise and cause many changes to way of Life, best Wishes to those having such Problems and i Sincerely hope you have some great Days of Laughter ie the best Tonic in Life
Thank you for this, Bob. I am aware that several of us are not in the best health that we could wish for but I hope we all put a smile on our faces as we get on with life. Sunshine comes with smiles and laughter, definitely the best tonic ever!! God bless !!
Def is Kim, Today i had strict orders from Wife KEEP OUT OF THE KITCHEN FROM TEN ONWARDS her Xmas Cake Baking Time, first Batch of 4 Today, i could,nt do any Ironing or make any noise, i lay back on the Settee for almost Four Hours, watched a couple of new Film Releases curtesy of one of Son in Laws, Youngest Daughter visited for an Hour and once they left it was Time for another Film.Aroma of Xmas Cakes wafting through the House BLISS.
Managed a couple of hours Ironing before Dinner which enabled me a restfull Afternoon, got to admit i was seriously tempted to build an Ark, Rained all Night and most of Today, but i thought Naaaagggg let the Floods come, to Mature to bother now.
Visited Wifes Sister and Hubby this Morning, there just back from a Two Week Holiday in Spain hence trying to get used to our lovely Yorkshire Weather, we chatted on Family, Holiday, Politics, Brexit etc till i stated WELL I THINK THATS IT, IS THERE ANY SUBJECT WE,VE MISSED, no,s all around hence time for Home and Dinner, again Raining and again relaxing to Tele THINK I CAN GET USED TO THIS LAID BACK STYLE.
Went on a Dog Walk with Daughter this Morning then she came back to ours for Dinner, i was a bit jealous of her getting Gypsy Toast while i had Pastie and Mushy Peas, Wife stating more healthy than the Greasy Food i,ve been asking for lately RUDDY ELL LUV, AT MY AGE YOU,VE LEFT IT TO LATE TO BAN MY GREASY FOOD, she,s always ensuring i try to eat healthy, but hmmm enjoying is more Important.With the cold Weather coming in i,ll be having Stew and Dumplings mmmmm, Casseroles mmmmm, Sheperds Pie hmmm and a lot more of the Wifes culinary delights BRING THEM ON, but Pasties, Fish or Fishfingers ect bought from Shop somehow just not the same.
Caught in the Rain on visiting Dogs this Morning and it,s Rained all Day ANOTHER FEET UP AND RELAXING DAY even nodded off for an hour till Eldest Grandson woke me up, he was soaked to the Skin, he,d decided to walk to ours from Bus Station, we dried him out and gave him a Meal before Wife drove him Home.I then carried on relaxing, with again no scolding from Wife .
Another interesting Thursday, not sure who,s learning who between myself and Young Grandson, i seemed to be the Adult this Morning while Wife was on her Duties, i state Adult but he stated i act like a Seven Year Old at Times WONDER WHO,S TALKING ABOUT ME BEHIND MY BACK hmmm, Library Time was fun, bit Noisy at Times but enjoyed by All.
Ruddy ell thought the Rain was never going to end hence going mad with the Duster in my Office, Wifes Orders ie indoor duties only, it did pick up in Afternoon but Wife was out and about hence could,nt issue any Orders, it,s not that i like to be told what to do by Wife BUT IT HELPS, i,m still feeling Guilty when i just lay back on Settee and watch a Film of my choice and think I,M SURE THERES SOMETHING I COULD BE DOING, but a little voice keeps stating MAKE THE MOST OF IT BOB.
Caught up with Duties and then a nice Afternoon with Grandaughter, she,s just left at Seven, i made our Tea due to Wife going on a Girlie Night out with a couple of the Daughters and Friends, then we watched a Film and then she had some Computer Time, she def thinks i have the Answers to everything due to my Age, did,nt do to bad though, on leaving she stated ENJOYED YOUR COMPANY GRANDAD , bless.
Wife stated she,d be back about about Nine o Clock last Night, i wase,nt really bothered as it meant i could watch a couple of great action Films, managed to watch four ie 12.45 before i heard the Minie Bus park up outside, i went out to open Gate for her and got a cheer from the Ladies, gave them a wave , Wife had a great night out in good Company, a good meal and a visit to Four of the Venues around Town. Still praises Cleckheaton as a great Night out THINK I,M GETTING TO OLD FOR IT THOUGH BOB hmmm after watching them on Videos via Daughters phone Today at Tea Time SHE CERTAINLY MOVED ON THE DANCE FLOOR and they def enjoyed themselves, think it,s my turn for a Night out soon with the Boys.
Nice to have a dry Day to walk Dogs with Daughter, i,d called for my Four Quid Haircut First, Wife had made comments about my Santa Clause Locks hence having to give me early Pocket Money, now back to my Tony Curtis Self, cleared up the leaves in Garden after Dinner WELLLL I KEPT THE BAG OPEN FOR WIFE ONCE SHE,D SWEPT THEM INTO PILES, i kept stating wait till more come down but naaagh she likes the Garden to look good. She,d bought some Winter Plants to put in and pointed out the Snowdrops and Daffodil Shoots making an early appearance, getting some changes in our Plant behaviour.
Spent a couple of Hours at Youngest Daughters this Morning, she was having a Smart Metre fitted hence wanting me to keep Dogs busy while she had a Shower and got ready to go out for a Meal, heard her start the Shower and then a Scream, Workman had turned the Gas off, he did tell me he was going to but i,d forgotton to tell Daughter, i kept Stum and just mumbled Pratt knowing he could,nt hear me as he was working outside, thankfully it wase,nt off for to long.
Aye Kim , i owned up Today, said it slipped my Mind hmmm, could,nt go to Dogs this Morning, Rain yet again, i did keep myself busy by doing a bit of Polishing, Wife baking some Banana Cake which smelt delicious, but this Afternoon was Brighter hence us taking Dogs a Walk, Last Night i was just about to retire to Bed 11.15 and Phone rings, Second eldest Daughter, an attempted break in to there Garage, Her Hubbies bleeper had gone off and when he looked out of the Window saw a Chap by Garage, he shouted out WHAT THE ECK ARE YOU DOING IN MY GARDEN Cheeky Bloke shouts back SORRY MATE I,M JUST HAVING A PEE, won,t state what Son in Law replied. Suddenly a Neighbor from back of him shouts out HAVE YOU CAUGHT THEM , DO YOU NEED ASSISTANCE, I,M COMING ROUND NOW, he,d gone when Neighbor arrived but turned out they,d pinched two bikes and a generator from his Garage and stored them on a piece of Land between Daughters House and his, probably were going to do the same if they,d managed to get into Daughters and then someone coming along with Transport to pick it all up.All caught on Camera plus the Conversations, had to laugh when Son in Law shouted out the Window and Chap looked up and Son in Law stating THANKS FOR POSING.
