So this was last night, bonfire night. David’s band, Back Trak, played outside at The Swan pub in Clewer, Windsor. It was a great night. Lots of people. Lots of dancing. Good fun. This is what a happy retirement looks like for David, away from the corporate world he used to inhabit. He also teaches guitar part time and does some voluntary work a couple of afternoons a week. I’m very pleased to say he’s also learned how to do the housework while I’m out at work 😊. I still do shopping, cooking, washing and ironing. Not that there has been much cooking going on for a while. It mainly seems to be heating things up, waiting for what happens next with my parents.
Tonight we’re having roast pork, roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding from the freezer, carrots, green beans or broccoli and gravy. Pots & co chocolate mousses for pudding. I guess I do still usually cook on Sundays. I love that chilled out Sunday night vibe, even though there’s work tomorrow.
I will not be serving my roast pork on a chopping board. I am not a fan of eating off chopping boards. Give me a plate anytime. Very good invention, the plate!
My poor Mum ended up in hospital again last week after falling into a cupboard door and giving herself a black eye. She is doing OK though, back at her care home with her new friends, worrying about her autumn/winter wardrobe and putting in multiple requests for me to get things for her that I’m trying to keep up with. My Dad is a lot of work too in different ways. I don’t mind as long as they’re both safe and there’s not a crisis. A phone call from the care home at midnight to say my Mum’s got to go to hospital (again) was just awful. Let’s hope there are no more of those ever, but I guess the reality is there probably will be.
I do hope you’re keeping well. I’m sorry for the sporadic nature of my waffling these days. I will keep on waffling as and when I can. Bye for now Xx.
