My first" event" in this week's anticipated busy schedule, Monday's supper at Church, was ruined because I couldn't stop coughing and consequently didn't get to ask any of my silly questions. My second event on Tuesday, the meal followed by a visit to the cinema, bought with it more coughing. On Wednesday I set off for golf but then thought "I really don't feel well" so I turned back and endured two "duvet days". Don't you just hate that?
But, the good news is that the boiler has been replaced, we have heat, we have hot water, BUT my shower is still not working. So we've come the full circle back to the beginning, I need to get my shower fixed!
The movie that I went to see with my friend Jean was Saving Mr Banks. I wasn't particularly looking forward to it because I'm not a Mary Poppins or a Disney fan but, boy, was I wrong. It was one of the best films I've seen for a long time and I can thoroughly recommend it. It had me laughing, smiling and even (say it quietly) crying!. What more can you ask from a movie? Great.
And I just discovered that my great-granddaughter Orianne's budgie is laying on his back at the bottom of the cage. Unfortunately, he is no more. I think maybe the shock of feeling warm again when the heating came back on again did it for him. Oh dear, she will be really upset when she gets home from school.
All in all not a very good week. In fact I think that I can definitely say that, at best, it has been a mixed week.
So .... what words of wisdom would Winston Churchill have for me at the moment? "Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm". Good on ya Winny!
