I hope everyone on here had a lovely Christmas.
My eldest son and grandaughter arrived about 3pm Christmas eve. I apologised for the state the house was in and I said how exhausted I was. "Don't worry Mum" he said, "I'll soon sort that out" ....... and he did. Within half an hour, the kitchen and dining room were clean and tidy. A small chore can take me several hours to do, but he gets it done in minutes. He has so much energy.
I had a lovely Christmas day. I volunteered to pick my grandson up from Ealing, Southampton whilst my two sons prepared and cooked everything for our Christmas meal. I like driving and the traffic was very light; it gave me a chance to play my CDs and unwind. When I arrived, my ex daughter in law invited me in for coffee whilst my grandson was getting his things together. We fell out ten years ago when my son took her to Court over the custody of the children. It was good to put all that behind us and she gave me a hug when I left.
When I got back everything was under control in the kitchen and our eldest son made some Bucks Fizz for us all. I was then told to go and sit down until dinner was ready. The rest of the day was lovely too apart from the fact that John wasn't very well and kept having to go to bed to lay down. He looked very pale all day and had a slight temperature. If he is no better tomorrow, I will try to get him an appointment with a GP. I have been wondering if he could be anaemic.
