All Change.

This weekend has been the usual mix of busy and sleep. I try to get up around the same time each day its much easier if you can. Saturday morning it was 9.00am and this morning I woke to the sound of church bells at 10am!!! I couldn't believe how late it was. It really wrecked the whole day!!
Keith and Nicky came over and we finally sorted out the last of the fire claim. Its been a really long slog with that one and its not quite finished yet. Still waiting on a few more bits to be finalised. We all went out for lunch at The Long Arm, Short Arm in Lemsford. They do a truly wonderful Sunday lunch.

Today we couldn't get a table until 2.30pm the place was packed! The roast meat is very generous and they have the most fantastic roast potatoes and home made cauliflower cheese. (the cauliflower is edible and not rock hard which seems to  be the trend!!) By the time we were finished it was around 3.45 and as we were getting ready to go they were invaded by about thirty ramblers, who all had lunch in their stocking feet!!
Dad, Keith and Nicky went in to see mum, she has been moved out of the five bed ward and into the two bed ward where Dad had been in 2006. This is much nicer for her and the other lady. She has finally been able to concentrate enough to read some of her book. They even have their own telly (although dad said its something out of the 80's!!) Hopefully she will settle a bit now and build on her progress. She is still coming off of her patches so that is tough on her, but it will be so worth it in the end.
Looking forward to another packed week at work!!

I spent many a happy evening in the Long & Short in my very distant youth! I must go back and try the food!
