Second Daughter always lives in a whirl of activity – she’s incredibly busy and manages to stuff 50 times more than most people into her time. I’m beginning to feel it’s hard to keep up … 😉 (YES I KNOW IT’S MY AGE :p)
She’s moving soon, so arrived with a long to-do list for Saturday morning, fitted in swimming with the kids in the afternoon and then spent the evening working :no:
She was going to leave after lunch on Sunday, then took a look at the snow and decided sensibly to go mid-morning instead. I’m relieved they got home safely and with no mishap or piled-up traffic.
Meanwhile Eldest Daughter (who lives locally) had had a foul week, and then discovered that her daughter’s childminder had to go into hospital today, query cancer. So that is all very sad and we’re hoping that her laparoscopy will show that she’s OK :`(
Anyway, the upshot was that after a rather dozy few hours off today when we trickled round here and there and couldn’t make up our minds about anything …, we went and picked up Eldest Granddaughter from school and brought her home with us, which is always a joy, then Mum joined us too and we had supper together. ED’s partner wasn’t able to come as he was working late, so I sent him a plateful for when he gets in … one thing about Partner … you never have any leftovers after feeding him 😉
On Sunday about 10 of us made it through the ice and snow to church. However, they were not the people you would expect. One can’t walk, and came in her batricar. One has had hips and knees replaced and is still in some pain – but got there nonetheless. One is a Rwandan who was so mercilessly beaten in the uprising there some years ago, that it has left her in permanent pain after numerous ops, and she needs a stick to get about.
They put the rest of us to shame, so they do.
