Difficult to think of any positives although there must have been some...
Erm..I had my hair cut on Monday, different hairdresser (mine was on holiday) and the new girl actually made a better job of it..not everyone can do an inverted bob.
Oh, yes...I solved the Max/ weekend problem (at a price) by changing hotels..the new one is even better (and has a spa) and has 200 acres of garden/parkland/woods...yes, Max is coming with us. He's still sulking about us leaving him behind on Tuesday and not collecting him until Weds. afternoon.
Ooh, I got to stay in a Holiday Inn at Elstree on Tues. night. Sadly, all the Travelodges/Premier Inns we tried were full..it was such a hardship...NOT!
Nice meal (that wasn't cooked by me) and a comfortable bed.
The funeral went as well as these things ever go...unfortunately the aftermath has been unpleasant - to the extent that we saw a solicitor today. He just confirmed what we knew - too late to do anything (by 23 years, which is when D's father died and his will mysteriously went missing). My MIL was D's stepmother (his Mum died when he was only 7).
I dressed like a grown-up for the funeral..including tights and heels..yes, I wore a dress. The heels weren't too bad on Tuesday but I forgot to pack flats for Weds. After stumbling around St Alban's (literally) for an hour, I retired to the public library and spent a happy half-hour checking my emails etc. My legs and feet have still not recovered...the physio knew what she was talking about when she warned me off wearing heels too often...but I love pretty shoes!
I'm grateful for the people who have emailed and phoned to offer support and have threatened all sorts of things to cheer me up and de-stress me when my routine is back to normal. The jury's out on whether I'm looking forward to all of them :)
Song of the week:
Maroon 5 "Moves Like Jagger" - great video
Book of the week:
"Selected Poems" by Robert Frost. I love poetry :) And it does make a change from my "normal" reading.
Surreal moment of the week:
Just now when I dashed upstairs to google "bras" to find out when they were first developed. It's surreal because at the time we were watching a documentary on the formation of British Rail and the end of the steam train.*
I'm posting this early as I'm tired and going to bed soon and I have to pack for our weekend away in the morning. Normal service will be resumed on Monday evening..although I'm taking my laptop with me..ostensibly so that we can play Bejeweled but really 'cos I get withdrawal symptoms if I can't log on.
I'm leaving you with another gem from Pinterest:
And I bet you're singing it now!!
Do check out the other Rockettes and have a great weekend..whatever you're doing. :)
