Welcome and come on it. Everyone else did today as the real estate agent had an open house of the place we are renting in order to get new tenants when we move out. Yes, it is really happening. The move has been scheduled for the 14th of March, still a few weeks away but it will go very quickly.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that I have almost finished my final edit on my revisions and I’m happy with them. That doesn’t mean that the examiners will be but you can only do your best. I will be finished these by the end of February and resubmit. Then I can concentrate on the upcoming move and start packing boxes ……again.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you about the drama of my mother’s bed. She has recently fallen out of bed a couple of times and decided that she wanted rails to prevent this from happening. She is embarrassed that the ambulance has to be called to get her up off the floor and she is fearful that on a future fall she could hit her head or break a bone. A real problem for someone of her age. A new bed was obtained and we have been trying to sell the old one for a month or so. Roger and I ummed and arhed deciding if we would take it, put a long single next to it and have a super size single. Then Mum had her first customer. We had to make a decision.We decided that we would take it. The bed salesman was excited. I was excited. We lay on the various beds and chose mattress firmness and colour. I was in a rush. I had to be out. “We’ll be back tomorrow to order” I said. The next morning we went to a linen shop en route to the bed shop, just to check we could get a sheet that would fit the almost 2 metre bed we would have. Our excitement waned— a king size and super king were the same width, all that differed was the amount allowed for mattress height. I can make it as two singles, I’ll get a suspender belt for it…I went through all the options. Eventually Roger persuaded me it was not worth the trouble and Mum luckily managed to sell it to the woman that had expressed interest. If we were having coffee and Roger was not near I would probably admit it was a good thing.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that I am still reading The Museum of Modern Love but will hopefully be finished it tomorrow to do a book review for Monday. In my cruising series we will be visiting The Bay of Islands, our first port of call. Friday should see a new Times Past prompt – if you have any wheels memories there is still time to get them in.
Now I’d like to hear how your week has been. Our weather has turned and I feel autumn is around the corner despite still having hot days. We desperately need rain. What is happening with your weather?
