Back to work... again

And so the lovely 13 days at home came to end and I was forced to arise at 06:00 to drag my sorry arse back to work...

Made the journey in more bearable by putting on the new Kate Bush Album - Aerial and it is brilliant, managed to listen to the first disk on the way into work, beautiful sounds filing every corner of the car.

Then I arrived, after 10 minutes I was buried in the same old pile of queries and problems, and it felt as if I had not left. I'm gld to say CQ raised the question of a group holiday during the day and so we had an enjoyable conversation with Cyberkitten about that, whilst she searched for properties suitable for 8 adults and 3 children...and she came up with a few cracking properties for us to consider, one in particular near Bideford, Devon looks excellent for our needs, but another in Betys y Coed in Snowdonia comes in at a close second.

Went to the hospital to visit my Dad after work, he is looking better; sitting up and much more talkative, but still prone to fall asleep with no warning. We talked for about an hour about nothing in particular. I confirmed with the ward sister that he is going to be assessed by the stroke specialist from another hospital with a dedicated stroke rehab ward with in the next couple of day, so he should be moved there by the weekend with any luck.

then home at 18:00, 12 hours away...greeted by Mrs.A on the sofa with a stonking head-ache, thankfully the children were playing nicely-ish, so I was able to get on making my own dinner of Tuna Steak, Bean burger and Pilau rice...time for tv then an early nght

I don't know what stonking means - but I can guess it was a bad one. I had an awful headache today too, and mine are few and far between. Hope you feel better.

Please explain to this under educated American how "arse" is used in Britain. I know it means "ass" but do you pronounce it just like it's spelled? Is it considered a "bad" word like ass is in America? Although the TV censors have been allowing it for a couple of years now...
