So…I saw in the new year.
Not that I wanted to.
The first firework went off and Jasmine was at my side.
Protect me Mommy.
She tried to get under the bed.
As it is only a couple of inches off the floor, that didn’t work.
Eventually I took her into Wendy’s room and we slept there.
With Tom curled up behind me and purring.
Also, one of my idiot kids phoned just after midnight.
I didn’t get to the phone in time.
Or they had a sudden rush of commonsense.
Or remembered just WHO they were calling.
I suppose I should be happy that they thought of me.
But I am not at my best in the middle of the night.
Mex has FINALLY taken himself off to the doctor.
Says the smoke from the fire has aggravated his chest.
I showed admirable restraint.
I never said I told you so.
Though I wanted to.
We haven’t been to the beach yet.
It is looking a bit grey.
And it is cool.
Something to look forward to later on.
This being Cape Town it will probably be a lovely day in ten minutes time.
Well, I got that wrong.
It is half an hour later and it is still grey.
Mex is back.
He needed an antibiotic.
I am trying,very hard, not to be smug.
Hopefully they work fast.
Nothing worse than a sick man.
Well, seeing as how I have done nothing I have nothing much to say.
I have cleaned the one toilet.
Thought you should know that.
And the wash basin etc.
And wafted a duster around a bit.
I think I have earned a little nap.
If anything eventful happens, later, I will be back.
