    How did you get on with the early retirement? - AFAIR you spoke about it late last year.
    Entropy is NOT what it used to be.
    Inertia, however........................

    Morning denizens

    Clear blue sky out, for the most part; bit of cirrus here and there, but nothing to fret over

    Morning all

    White clouds here. Haven't ventured out to see how chilly or not it is.

    How are the FitzParents doing Nick? (Apologies if I missed the updates - have been otherly distracted)

    The calculation was that VR would be offered this year since it seems to appear every two years on average with this new lot in charge.

    And lo! thus it proved to be.

    One is waiting for a reply to one's application.

    With bated breath. <- cough cough.
    When the fun stops, STOP.

    They're both out of hospital, but my Mum hasn't been fully recovered from the chest infection for which she was hospitalised, which has left her struggling a bit. Meanwhile, my Dad, having been hospitalised first with the same chest infection but also having the broken hip, has been badgering her to do stuff that he can't do, apparently not realising how much she's also struggling, which has been stressing her out

    She's recovering now though, and my sister has been trying to get it through his head that he's got to back off while she recovers properly. Just been on the phone to her, and she sounds a bit better

    Might be worth looking into temporary home help. Hope they're both up and running on all cylinders soon.

    Edit - or definitely the modern equivalent of 'meals on wheels' such as Wiltshire farm foods - freezer to microwave, hassle free.

    Memories of Christmas past with today's late lunch: turkey soup, with a couple of bits of wholemeal bread

    They've got "helpers" from Social Services coming in morning and evening, mainly to help my Dad. From what she says, cooking, even if it's only reheating M&S ready meals, is one thing my Mum isn't having any trouble with. They've always got an extremely well-stocked freezer
