Now Jagger is waiting for the squirrels to come back.
He looks like a statue he is sitting so still.
Tabbitha has joined him and she is scanning
all over to see if they are out there somewhere.
My cats stirred about 3:15 am and disturbed me.
I fell back asleep about 4am and woke up again
at around 6:45am when they came to get me to feed
them. I lay down again and only just woke up.

Its not going to get as hot today, only 77f but it is
coming back around in a few days time.
Yesterday it climbed into the 90s in the foothills
and valleys, humidity has dropped so did not
feel as hot here nearer the coast.
I hate this yo-yo weather as you open up all the windows
and put a fan on and its cooled off enough to shut all
the windows again!
Not even a puff of wind this morning , yet it was quite
breezy yesterday.

I get on average about 12-14 white envelopes a week
from various places, usually throw at least two away
as they are only looking for business. I have to open
the rest even if its only an offer from one of the banks
I deal with.
Then there are prospectuses for further
investments or notifications of round tables with
other people who need to be aware of changes in the
law as far as Trusts are concerned, none of which
affect me.
If I need to ,I will schedule a one on one
meeting in the office to go over this last years changes
face to face. It costs me a fee every time I go in and
do a transaction but if I can keep it to once a year its
not so bad.

Melanie says she looked at some of her old journals and
could see the pattern of Jims behavior that she let
slide so many times. I am glad she sees that it has
begun again now after only 3 months clean. He
is again making excuses why he does not need to
go to see his councilor as often as he should (once
a week) or go to as many meetings as he is going to
(3 or 4 a week) which is recommended in his 12 step
program at this point. Repeated meetings tend to
get his brain thinking the recovery way and not his
"stinking thinking" old mode of thinking.
It means the circle of depression has started again.
I think she wants to come here to work out a plan
to get him taking care of what he needs to do for his
own recovery. Its a shame that it has come to this but
Melanie has to look at it as being with a person who is
becoming toxic to her recovery.
I am sure we will talk about it a lot while she is here.
It is going to be difficult financially for her if he is
asked to leave the house. This of course means I will
be involved unless she can get a lodger to share the
rent with.
Oh well , here we go again! TTFN

morning  Bond I don't know
seems "someone" has something against
ME Sleep  at night
Gil had me awake at 230am ,TALKING....
and talking NONSENSE at that headbanger
then Buddy started at 330am ,so kicked him out
the bedroom .... Buddy not Gil  

Now Blaine just got up at 530am saying HE never Sleep
all night ,so is going in late,and its SNOWING close to us

Not SUPPOSED to be much headbanger

I was thinking of going  back to bed after Blaine
leaves ,but guess that is off the table now

Only GOOD news is my daily lotto number { clock # from U.S. Baird}
came out BACKWARDS  so 6 4 9 came out 9 4 6
which for $1 will gain me $42.50c    of course it would
have been better had it come out straight ,then it would have been
$292.50c ,but beggers cannot be chooses so they say  

Anyway another  washingbasket  to do today  so away I shall go
Back later


LOVE your Avatar Bond BTW
GOOD MORNING LADIES

Good evening all, we didn't go to Tamworth In the end as we were a bit late getting away so we went the other way to Hinckley, as most town today alot of charity shops, it was market day so that was a nice change, some stalls we don't see, but most of the time it was charity shops looking for books,. Mrsb found a very nice lead black leather shoulder bag, with a Italian name and nice tooling around the edges it also had a very clever chain and clasp inside to hook your phone or purse onto all for £4:99

Funnily enough aeronautical engineering
was not Peter's first choice either.
he was good at mechanical drawing and
math so when he graduated from Boarding
school in Germany and his dad got posted
home again he could not deal with his
dads drinking bouts and anger problems
(PTSD) so looked for a way out.
His dad had known of another retired RAF
officer who was in charge of a drawing
office at AWA in Coventry.so that's how
Peter ended up in Coventry!
He was waiting to be the right age to
sign up for the RAF as a pilot( he was
only 17 then) He met me but still had
the desire to fly so applied at least 4
times that I know of.
He did not pass the eye test and in those
days glasses were not allowed.
He did not know how bad his eyesight was
until one day in class he got there last and
had to sit at the very back of the class and
borrowed his mates glasses to read the board!
It was a revelation but he was self conscious
about wearing glasses so would not tell me.
Until I caught him out one evening walking
round the City center and he could not read a
shop sign which must have had letters two feet
high from across the street.
so off to the eye Dr. he went and got glasses!
He always made the best of what life threw at
him so if he was not destined to be a pilot, he
would be the best engineer he could be instead.

At Cranfield he did go solo as part of his private
pilots license but could not get enough hours in
because of the bad winter we had in 62/63.
Because he was in the Aeronautics department
for his field of study that included flying
the college Austers.

I was a tortoise yesterday, I guess it was just relief
at getting all those errands done.
I have learned to roll with it instead of fighting it.
I feel a little more ready to rock & roll today

It is supposed to top out at 80f today, its 64f right now.
Forecast is for clear skies and bright sunny all day.
Tabbitha was having fun a little while ago watching two
squirrels playing around in the back garden. It looked
like a male and female (according to the difference in
size and appearance).They ended up running up the
Mountain Ash tree and over the roof they went.
Tabbitha is now sleeping after having her breakfast.

At present I don't have any appointment this month
for anything so might be able (fingers crossed) to get
some serious work done here.
I already sent off a card for Ian's birthday on the 12th
of this month.
Got a call from Vincent yesterday telling me that the
one payment a year might be the way to go in future.
I will wait and see how he handles it later in the year.
Just got the gardeners bill to pay today.
I also need to contact the pharmacy at CVS to see why
I have had a second refill too soon on one medication
and not had one at all on another. Its always something.


We had a bit of excitement yesterday close by.
One of the development of town houses (kind of
like Masonetts) blew up from a gas leak.
its a good job it was empty but the four workers
refurbishing it got hurt.
Judging by the street number, its very close to where
we lived for three years when we first came here.
I go past it most days in fact.
Two other places got damaged but no one hurt there
either. Good job they have a 6 ft. high wall around
each patio so it took most of the blast.
Some idiot women they talked to on TV said she
smelled gas the night before and didn't report it!
I guess she thought someone else would do it.

I got side tracked for an hour because Melanie called.
It seems that Jim is going through a rough patch at
the moment and she has run out of patience with
him so she wants to come here for a week and bring her
dog, Chewie with her.
We have been working around appointments but it
should be soon.
Jim is good at talking a good game but never follows
through. Its their 9th wedding anniversary today and
he did not even buy her a card!
He needs to see a prescribing Psychiatrist (?) and get a
proper diagnosis for his condition but he keeps putting it
off. He is not using again but it is only a matter of time.
His councilor wanted him to wait 6 months to get him
in a place that he would accept going to get his condition
diagnosed. its only been 4 months and he is already showing
signs of relapse starting.
I missed breakfast so going to have an early lunch. TTFN

Morning........it's been a wet morning but it's drying up.

That was David Margaret he went to the Lanchester and got his ONC and later on his HNC  he did 6 months working with a Company and 6 months at Lanchester, he'd just got his HNC when I met him.  He was a Civil Engineer.   So was Steve but he hated it.....he went to Bristol and hated that, until Mum stepped in and said to David "Just because that's what you wanted to do and loved it doesn't mean your sons will, Steve hates it let him do what he wants to"   he went to College to do IT and loved it and that's what he's doing.   Same with Rob when he got to be 16 he'd had enough of playing headball , he'd been playing since he was 8 and he'd just had enough, when the Manager came round for Rob to sign the contract I could tell he didn't want to, he picked up the pen, and read the contract again....he was doing anything not to sign,  so again his MUM stepped in "Only sign it IF you want to Rob" well David and the manager started .....and yes he was a brilliant player, when we went to watch Matthew one day this guy walking by said "Our you Rob Peachey's parents?"  we admitted we were, and he started going on about how good he was and we get this all the time, so I could understand the manager wanting him to sign but if the boys heart isn't in it  confused2  so he didn't sign.....and his Dad wasn't pleased.   confused2

Oh look at the time.....I'm off to

Hi all, yes I understand that now about the role but at 15 I wasn't looking much about the he future, but I did know I wanted a Apprenticeship and I had really picked painting and decorating, I hadn't got a job when I left school so it was a bit of a Panic interview but happy when I got the six year Apprenticeship in the end
John my son did think he all round Apprenticeship at Land Rover that gave him the knowledge to manage the reserch and develoment and final finishing departments
Love the dogs but missing the pale lippy smile Vicky

That's what Peter had to do at
AWA, a trainee/apprenticeship
program. 6 months in every department
and he was going to Lanchester Tec
to do his ONC and later his HNC.

The Americans didn't understand how
British engineers were so qualified
all round at such an early age.
I cannot quite understand how Peter
earned a masters degree by age 23
in two years!
(it was a degree from the College of
Aeronautics, Cranfield change later
to the standard degree).

There is a change in the weather coming
on Monday, its supposed to be HOT!
More so inland than near the coast but in the
high 70s to 80s. sunny
Its currently 63f going up to 68f humidity
stands at 76% . I had to have the fan
on low all night as you can feel the moisture
in the air as the temperature rises.

After Fridays little dash around I did not
get as much done as I had hoped but I keep
moving forward, some days like a tortoise and
some day like a hare.
Got caught up on the washingbasket
yesterday.
its back to paper stuffing again today, it
seems to multiply over night!
I am determined to get control over it all
so I can move on to something else.

I still have a few small Cadbury chocolate
hollow eggs left but rationing them to two
a day.(we are talking regular egg size).
I have been very good so far.
I also have a solid chocolate bunny about
3" tall but I am saving him until I have
earned a special treat(bribery is good
for the soul occasionally ).
The clock is running and I should be too.
TTFN

confused2  But it was only for 6 months Bond.....and you'd see what went on on the shop floor level, learn.   That's the same as if you applied for a management job in say M & S you start serving customers on the cash desk/men's fitting rooms even helping out in their restaurants to get to know ALL the stores and how they're run.  confused2

Benjie & Nessie ......Benjie must be the one with his tail up his tails always fluffed up and in the air where as Nessie's tail is down..

Hi all, lovely lunch but just too much food!! Lovely food but too much
Aarrr yes WH, Smiths has gone from off the shoulder bridge but I was talking about JC, Smiths, it was one of the first places I went for a job interview, I wanted a job in their display centre, window dressing, I in house signs, all signs were hand painted, but they wanted me to do first six months on the shop floor and I could see you being left out of jobs in the Design shop, I really didn't want a shop floor job
You can bring a pudding box if you can eat it at the time but sorry I managed the chocolate Sponge Brownie , chocolate sauce and ice-cream mrsb had a very light lime tart
I can do the drinks

Well back from Big Palmers nicely stuffed.

Years ago I voted for someone in some programme, a number of times Susan was also voting more times than me. They did win but I'm sure our votes made no difference. confused2 who ever it was, I just remember going "Yeahhh" when they won, David thought I'd only voted the once ......it's not cheap telephone those programmes....though now you can do it online.

Oh that woman in the book I'm reading.....talk about stupid BUT I'm also going "That was me" and seeing things I should have told him to take a hike....her best friend is saying "You're so into him you can't see it" Mmmm!!! yes. Mad

There lies the problem .one has to VOTE
in order to get someone through ,same here
when a young person tries out ALL their mates
etc will call in and vote so even if we say THE
OPERA should have won ,how COULD
SHE when no one called in ...
Back from shopping ,back later

OH and Morning Vicky

What a turn around!
Down 2-0 in first half and finish
3-2 up at the final whistle.
I have been sharing memories
about my High School days in
Coventry on another UK site
remembering teachers who made
a difference in our lives.
watched a little golf to see how
Tiger is doing. He won't win but
if he finishes at par I think he will
be satisfied.
Onwards and upwards.
