Our first "normal" week turned out to be decidedly "unnormal" starting with swine flu. I had been feeling gruesome since the Tuesday before the funeral and spent the afternoon in bed thinking that I was maybe suffering from shock. Wednesday I still felt the same but I was execting friends to call in at random times and managed to cooked a huge stew and cottage pie. Aedrenalin got me through Thursday, the day of the funeral. On Friday I still felt the same and went to the doctor who diagnosed swine flu. So,Tamiflu and the weekend in bed was recommended. I still felt decidedly delicate on Monday, but rejoined the world.
On Friday my daughter, colleague and I spent the day in the archives of the city library attempting to verify whether or not a 30MPH speed limit was valid. Reason? Whilst visiting Davy in hospital I was flashed three times doing 40MPH, 38MPH and 36MPH in a 30MPH zone. As my licence is so important, especially when Davy relied on me so much and the road doesn't "feel" like a 30MPH road we asked questions regarding the validity of this limit and sight of the road traffic order changing the original 40MPH to 30MPH. As the council was not very co-operative we asked for this information using the Freedom of Information Act. They said they couldn't find the order hence our visit to the archives where we found quite compelling evidence to suggest that the original speed limit of 40MPH is still in affect.
So, my next question is - what is a "normal" week? And will I recognise it when/if it ever happens?!
