haven’t blogged for a couple of weeks. couldn’t get motivated to write anything and didn’t really have anything to say. there has been good and bad news this past week. the good news: my benefits are safe for another year after my medical assessment and i am going to be a grandmother. my daughter in law is two months pregnant. it its a girl they are going to call her Emily Elizabeth but they can’t decide on a boy’s name.
the bad news: my son had to drop out of his training with the territorial army half way through a two week course. he has been working towards this for ages so it’s a big blow. secondly my son and daughter in laws two dogs had a bad fight. both of them had to be operated on under anaesthetic and my daughter in law had to borrow seven hundred pounds from her aunt to pay for the emergency vet. this is the fifth bad fight the dogs have had so now pete and kez have to make the agonizing decision as to which dog they should have re-homed.
i have read ‘nineteen minutes’ by jodi picoult, another grim one and ‘ the fry chronicles’ by stephen fry which i enjoyed. now i have to wait for my next two books to arrive in the post. they are a biography of hugh laure and ‘the good father’ by diane chamberlain, one of my favourite writers.
i haven’t done any writing.
