Well 2016 Continues To Rush Past

Yoda - Keep Calm
I am fighting a really nasty cold that is trying to head to a chest infection, but fluids, rest, paracetamol and oranges have joined the fight ... I just hope we win!

I managed to get Jiffy walked this morning in the dry, and now as it's raining I am going to try to get some LJ caught up, and some icons made.  I am only doing one set of 20in20 this month, but hope to get back to the 2 sets of 100's I am doing as well.

My friend Toni came over yesterday - it was great to see her.  We had both had tough years last year, which meant we didn't get to see each other much.  She has moved house so is now nearer, so we hope this year to keep in touch more.

I went to the solicitors yeaterday to swear over Mum's will.  So that will be done in about a month, we hope.  It should be at about the  same time that Tim and I finally get the paperwork through the Court of Protection for Dad ... until then we can't sell the house, but at least we know things are moving along.  As everything is frozen for the money etc, Tim has taken out a loan to pay Dad's Home fees.

He is certainly more settled.  He has been to Church there, and when I go we usually go for a walk.  Jiffy goes in once a week, so he likes that.  As does Jiffy, who loves all the attention from everyone.

Starting next week I am going to be increasing my hours slightly ... I am doing, via The Bank, a short term contract as a Physiologist.  So as well as being a good challenge, it is a bit more pay an hour.  Still all in the same dept, and they requested me, so it really should work out well.

My Daily Bible Reading continues ... but haven't posted any thoughts I know.  Today I was reading of Abraham and Sarah laughing when they were told that they would have a child (she was in her 80's) ... but the reminder shows that nothing is impossible, with God.  A good reminder for the day.

I won't skim your LJ's as I want to get caught up, before I get side-tracked again.  Hope you are all well

Sorry about the cold but so glad that you got to see Toni

The legal hassles around wills and courts of protection seem to take for ever! Glad that your Dad seems to be settling in.

And good news on the work front too.

I have everything crossed that 2016 will be a much better yesr for you my dear

Thank you - it was certainly a "busy" year, last year!

I am enjoying the new job, and have already been signed off to work by myself.

Your new job sounds much more satisfying and good use of your skills. I'm sure the money will come in handy.

Sorry to hear about your cold/flu - I hope it goes quickly but make sure you are taking care of yourself.

It's good to hear your dad is settling in well.

Dad has bad days, but when he does the staff are great with him.

I am hoping for you a 2016 that is a trouble-free, and even an excitement-free, year; just a nice smooth ordinary sort of a year!

Hope you're feeling better, now! (I'm way behind, myself, as you can tell.)
