A 2017 Meme, As Well As A Bit Of News 
21st-Dec-2016 04:11 pm
Clarinet.
Had a pretty good day, so far.

Have decided that resting isn't really getting me anywhere, so decided to go back to the gym today and because I am on steroids at present, that went well.  I have also played my saxaphone for about 15 mins.  It is easier to play for my mouth than the clarinet, so have started easy, and will build up.

I still have all my sorting out to do, but I shall, hopefully, do a chunk of that tomorrow.

And, for a final piece of news, a final step for Mum & Dad, their bungelow no longer belongs to us ... it completed yesterday.  A long time, seeing as the neighbours put the offer in last Easter ... but as we got more than we expected we weren't too upset ovrt all.

And, before I post this meme that I snagged from zhelana

Slobbing around - I hope

No - only Nick & Brenda's silver wedding anniversary.

I try to be nice to them already

I have changed this last year anyway, buying slightly different colours and styles, so will see how I enjoy that.

16. Will you start or quit drinking?
Not a great drinker anyway - can take it, or leave it ... and will stick to that.

17. Will you better your relationship with your family?
I would like to spend more time with both families, but sadly neither boy wants Jiffy around, so that's a no-go, as I am not going to keep abandoning him.

Of course

Seriously great answer to #4. Have fun!
And hey, yay for exercise + enjoying it. :)

Yes, I'm surprised how much I am enjoying the gym.
21st-Dec-2016 05:49 pm (UTC)
Why don't the boys want Jiffy? That is so sad :(

Tim is 110% house-proud, so Jiffy is not welcome ... in fact when M&D used to take him he hated being there!

Nick has huge mental problems so any noise or sudden movement is causing him major problems.

So Jiffy & I will spend the day together, and enjoy.

You know that you have an open invitation for a few days in Suffolk!

I would love to, a county I don't know, and time with a friend.

I glad to hear that you finally sold the house, I'm sure it is a huge weight off your mind. I know that I was very relived and sad at the same time when I sold my parents's house.

It felt both good and utterly wrong at the same time to finally sell M&D's house. That last step, except for the tombstones ... so sad.
