Success! I have managed to get the photo I aimed for this time, and this is my lovely Great Grandson Tyler. Please excuse the size of the photo, I haven't mastered the art of changing sizes yet. He is two in eight days and a real sweety. Of course I'm not biased!!!
Well! This is another step forward for me. I have never managed to cut and paste on my blog before. It's enough at my age, an most of my friends of the same era; who use the computer to write will agree. Even though I have been shown once how to do it , I'm afraid a quick once isn't enough. Today I have spent an hour trying to find out how to do it and cracked it. Well cracked it might not be quite right, I think it was more by chance. (-: Maybe with a bit of luck, I'll work it out again next time.
I’m not sure if I mentioned last time that I was having my, Mother’s book printed. You know what it’s like as you get older. Short term memory loss and all that! Although if someone says something mean or is nice to me. Funnily enough I don’t forget that! Luckily most people are nice to me, I never realised that the power of thought could feel as though you had made it happen. I have always really liked people and tried to think the best of them. But like most people I have wished someone who was real mean, would get a taste of their own medicine. Let's say I never wish anything bad on anyone now, as I never meant it.
Back to my book. I have never felt like my book is a book, because it was just on Kindle. I'm so old I feel I have to hold my book in my hands before it is really mine. What's better than curling up on the settee with a book, a cuppa and some chocolate? So now I can't wait to get the first one.
Well Autumn has really come in, not with the slow mellow days, I remember. It seems to not remember where it is in the calender year. Right now, it’s a nice day here, but an hour ago we were having torrential showers. Now I’m looking out across the sea, the sun is shining as bright as a lazy summers day. Inside my place the sun hit's the windows and warms it up so much I have to open the windows. Then of course it changes and it’s quite cold and I have had to put my cardi on.
Where I live we are having new meters put in. They started next door and it means several of us have to be turned off. I wish we had been warned, I need a shower and have missed out on my second cup of coffee. I can't weigh up why we aren't getting our power from the wind. Looking over the sea now, we have well on the way to a couple of hundred windmills and are going to have more. If they help the atmosphere to keep cleaner for the next generations of children, I can't complain. But from what I have been told they don't even belong to us, and we have to pay foreigners for the use of them.
Well it’s been another one of those weeks, apart from my having another lot of the tests where the NHS has looked after me well again. As you get older it gets harder though, I’m sure I’m not the only one who doesn’t like being poked and prodded. Still I’m lucky as all is OK. I also have had a flood which started in my bathroom and it meandered out into the hall and into my bedroom. Long story! But thank God for good friends. Then I had the funeral of my last Aunt, yes I still had an Aunt living! Aunty Mable was a lovely lady, tall, elegant, beautiful and a very nice person as well. As funerals go it was lovely, her two sons certainly knew her and gave her loving eulogies. I was her
flower girl and still have a picture of myself in the dress my mother made. I have written about it in ‘Cos, the kid’s story. It was blue satin and my mother had smocked across the bodice, I’m not sure if anyone smocks now; or even knows what it is? I loved that dress!
Well I had a lovely time last Friday night. Who says old age is a time for sitting in your chair, one of my Fibro friends held her 60th birthday party in the Engineers club. What a great night it was, it brought so many memories of the days when parties were for just having a good time. There was a great band. Other than a couple of younger muscians, most them playing had seen the best side of sixty. But could they knock out all the old music. Rock and roll, and romance it was all there and you could understand every word. They had one of the best drummers I had heard for a long time. He was a young man and could he hit those drums! Took me back to The Rink and Public Hall. those were the days. It was a great family and friends occasion. My friend's daughter, is very talented young woman and she sang for her Mum, as did her brother. I arrived home at 1-30 am and some of the partygoers were still moving on. I enjoyed it so much it made me smile for days after.
Must say bye, I have just done a daft thing, put a face pack on and realised i can't put my reading glasses on now. Writing this by peering at each word, so will be in touch again.
Take care all and be happy (-:
