I am glad I found this group. The youngsters here have made me realise how much time I’ve wasted thinking and wishing rather saying and doing.
At school there has been a vacancy for staff governor for ages. Well that is me
now and my first meeting is next week. I’ve also been sorting out lots of my
stamp collection so that I can give a display at the local club (with others of
course) in December. I’m looking forward to doing that.
I’ve had a man round to tidy up the garden to keep the neighbours happy. Jane
used to do the gardening and when she died I didn’t seem to have the energy to
bother with it much. She would be cross at how bad it had got.
Jane died in 2009, well this week I finally got round to giving most of her
clothes to a charity shop. I’m pleased that somebody else will get some use of
out them as she had quite a sense of style, unlike me. I don’t go to the
cemetery where she was buried for ages but I went last Sunday to check
everything was tidy. It was.
But the most important thing is that I am going over to Wales to see Rosemary
at half term. She was fostered like me and was my first proper girl friend
many, many years ago in St Albans. She runs a Bed and Breakfast but isn’t too
busy at this time of year. Although we have spoken on the phone this will be
the first time we have met for about 40 years.
