Picking up the threads

At least, I think so.

Life is resuming some of its old rhythms. Alan's allowed to take up driving again, gradually, & since Tuesday has been taking daughter #2 to her 'paying off student overdraft' summer job a few miles down the road. We're debating whether to brave Asda at weekend, or stick to the novelty of Internet grocery delivery a while longer. Even had a little row the other day, which is a sure sign of things getting back to normal :-)

Meanwhile daughter #3 has completed her GCSEs & daughter #1 has completed her degree (but still waiting for results). Son has a job interview tomorrow before heading in our direction for a long weekend of tv footie & food. He's contrived to take leave from his current job for the whole second round - nice to see that maths degree isn't going to waste!

So generally speaking the next generation are heading into the future where they belong & we're sitting back taking stock of the last month & wondering how many of the threads we really want to pick up. Some of them are probably just entanglements we can do without.

No rash decisions, though, until we've negotiated summer's cardiac rehabilitation, physiotherapy, angioplasty-with-a-stent-or-two & renewed recovery. That's enough to be going on with.

    Forget the Asda. I'd stick with the Internet shopping and go somewhere pleasant on Saturday.
    I shop on the net and so does my sister but she still drags me out to these places. We end up wandering around with one item in each hand.
    Glad things are beginning to get back on an even keel for you and your family.

    Yes, no rash decisions and like Kat says - stick to online grocery shopping and do something more interesting.

    Certainly enough to be going on with so take care.
