Well thats this years anticlimax over with. So contrary to certain family members imput I hadnt decided to join the death list for 2016 despite them all reminding me that im the same age as George Michael . I had just decided that I should live by the motto "if you cant say nothing nice ,then say nothing "
Everything ive said over the past few years on the xmas subject still applies , so I thought it was a good time for a blog break .
So what has xmas bought me? little prizes on the competition front , lip balm from Burts Bees and a really nice craft book from Popular Patchwork. Prezzies? Well im sure the family are convinced im an alcoholic !!
On the life is grim front , we have had heating, the freezer is full and ive actually been paid , i did buy little presents for them all and they were just as unimpressed as they were when i didnt buy them anything , go figure .
I did get a surprise gift from my daughter, a Fire Amazon thingy , still somewhat baffled , it comes without any instructions and plays endless Amazon adverts but i have managed to play mahjong on it and it lets me read my kindle downloads . Im sure it can do loads more but i will set it a task a day , technology has rather left me standing still, but i can usually figure stuff out eventually . I think its a sort of a large print smart phone that doesnt include a phone...lol . The diary function probably has preset babysitting and washing lists...lol
Very quiet xmas indeed, we have seen no one , done nothing and had yet more worry on the Young Baldrick front , it was decided that he would be invited for xmas, it would be up to him what he chose to do . So I contacted his housing scheme only to find out that he had left over a week ago . To parts unknown . so we rang round the relatives to be told he was on the run from the police after stealing a car?? which explains the police constantly doing drive bys as this is one of his known addresses , please remember he is registered blind. He was spotted in Tesco doing his xmas shoplifting by another relative , he told them the car business was all a misunderstanding , between his girlfriend and her ex husband and was sorted .
Sorted my arse!! Last night we get a call from a lovely young girl on his behalf it turns out there are people looking for him and she had found him hiding in her garden hysterical because they had tried to kidnap him ....really ...now this could be just psychosis from not taking his medication , or it could really be his drug dealers looking for him over money , he wanted to come here , but its not happening .
We told her to contact the police straight away, so hopefully hes in a cell somewhere as we speak , what the past year has taught us is that you cant help people who just use you everytime .
He needs proper professional custodial help , not this care in the community claptrap they keep on foisting on him , the odd visits from community psychiatrics if they can even find him , has helped him not in the slightest . Have we reached the end of the Baldrick Chronicles I think not
So to all a Merry Xmas ...thank God its over with for another year ..
Cherie hun will scan that pattern once i find it ...lol
