A day when i feel half way human , so the troops are playing fix the vehicles and im cooking endless sausage sandwiches plus a big batch of jacket potatoes to use them up , i will stuff them and plop them in the freezer and we can have a couple for tea . These are the boring days when im on call all day so cant get on with much , but its nice to see a bit of company , now that daughter and grandson are gone i rarely talk to anyone from one day to the next , son tends to grunt in passing and MR Bah Humbug is just endlessly jabbering on about his radios he does not require any imput at all from me he is a world expert...lol
Theres few Jumble Sales its now gone over to Xmas Fayres and Gift Fayres not of any interest im afraid , we are down to just buying daft bits for one another . The family members who could afford Xmas cast us off many years ago.
Its funny how the social side of things die a death if you become disabled or poor . So please bear this in mind when people turn down Xmas invitations , its not that people dont want to join in, its often silly physical problems that mean an invitation gets turned down , not having a downstairs toilet with decent access means we dont go to a lot of places . Or no suitable seating . Silly one is not having non alcoholic drinks at parties , its not that people are being killjoys in refusing alcohol , medication or illness or even the fact that drunk them is a really bad idea.
I know that the days of meeting friends for a cake and a cuppa have pretty much gone , i just cant afford it and its horrible if your friend has to buy all the time even if they realise your situation .
We dont go out at all through the winter , its much more expensive to run the house in winter so spare cash is pretty much non existent. shopping once a fortnight nd the doctors are our only trips out . But this year we have heating just an hour a day but its heating and at least if you keep everywhere shut this house holds heat fairly well , with the addition of a hot water bottle we manage pretty well .
We have been in a far worse place in previous winters , so lifes not bad just boring...lol
