I’m Not Leaving London ‘Til I’m Done

4 Sep

I started the finish of my London story – I really did – after eight weeks’ worth of ironing fell out of the cupboard and said ‘Do me or the washing machine gets it!’ and I thought I’d better do it so I did; but then I remembered Spud’s Personal Statement for his university application (for which he had eight weeks to work on it, and didn’t) which I had insisted he send to me for proof reading/heavy editing and which had to be sent off by five o’clock today so I proofread/heavily edited it then we argued for a bit about my changes and then he made all the changes and then he sent it off, by which time it was dog walk time dinner time clear up after dinner time fall into bed time get out of bed to schedule tomorrow’s joke time and might as well write this post while I’m at it time.

As for London…like the Eagles in Hotel California, we may never leave.

    Oh…some things are more important…I mean university debt waits for no one. 🙂

    I have lived days like yours, never boring.:D When it comes to doing things for our babies, all the other stuff can wait, it isn’t going anywhere, our babies on the otherhand, they are going places, doing things and meeting people. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. 🙂

    Where would our children be if we didn’t heavily edit! Don’t be in a hurry to leave London. I’m enjoying the trip!

    I’m still euphemistically proof-reading for my 2 50-year-olds, ie heavily editing.

    Your lateness with the London story suits me right now as I have been busy. Take your time and rest!

    Why are there always things to do when we would rather be doing something else. Even sleep and naps get in the way. Dianne


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
