I’ll Never Catch Up

My week last week:

  • Dog walks every day, many long
  • Baking mince pies for vulnerable people (sneaking a few to four freezing workmen who heckled me on my walks between the vicarage oven and church)
  • Doctor’s
  • Creative Writing class
  • Studiously ignoring my homework
  • Welcoming home Tory Boy with ALL of his stuff
  • Finding room for all of Tory Boy’s stuff
  • Cooking 
  • Cleaning
  • Catching up with ironing
  • Yawning
  • Recuperating all Thursday on the couch
  • Grocery shopping (huge)
  • Reading old jokes
  • Christmas shopping (a bit)
  • Helping a friend with something
  • Church
  • Stockport Writers’ Christmas do (playing word games – great nerdy fun)
  • Coming down with a stonking head cold

So that was my week, with the dull bits left out.

Sorry to have abandoned you.  Again.

I’ll be honest, it’s going to get worse before it gets better.

    I know exactly how you feel, sans head cold anyway. As someone once said, “The hurrier I go the behinder I get.”

    Poor Tilly – a martyr to nasty colds. I’m exhausted too, and I haven’t done a tenth of your list! I have written 90% of the Christmas cards, though.

    Hooray that Tory Boy is home!! Not so sure if a hooray should be said for all of his stuff ;). Thinking of you and missing you!

    Any mince pies in your pocket? I fancy one this very minute.

    I haven’t ironed in a long while. I’m getting a little wrinkled. Dianne

    thank goodness I don’t think I even own an Iron — don’t know where I’d fit that in.
    I also have a devil of a head cold, shaking, sweating thing and all I can manage is watching the entire Seasons of Downton Abbey until I am current. I am not sure who I am crushing on more: the feller who plays Matthew……or Maggie Smith.

    Thinking of you! Merry Christmas.

    I’m a little slow this week, so just catching up myself. I hope you’re feeling better by now. That is one incredible list, my friend. Enjoy your son…and enjoy the season…and take care of yourself. Tis the season to really remember what’s important to us, and to acknowledge we aren’t machines with interchangeable batteries. 🙂 ox

    getting heckled by four freezing workmen – go Tilly!


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.
