Happy New Year

Sorry...been rushing around like a blue arsed fly...

My Dad is doing OK, he is regaining some use of his left leg but not his left arm, his speech is fine if slightly slurred, main problem is the fact he is in Hospital and can't get any sleep !, they moved him to a ward next to where I was a few weeks ago in the old building, so you know how horrible it is in there if you read my old blog.

[flashback of yellow walls...ARRRRRRGGGGGGHHHH}

He should start Physio tomorrow when all the medical staff return after the xmas break.

The decorations came down last night, the house looks quite bare without them, but we always take them down before we return to work and Agi Junior goes back to school. I'm back to work tomorrow, and have a ver full calendar for the next couple of months.

So i've got to make the most of my last day at home, enjoy my time with the kids, well only 2 of them this morning; Agi Junior is staying at Nanny A's house, he'll be home later today. Rather quiet and relaxed without him here, he is a little whirlwind of energy :o)

Just seen on the news that there is a £9.5Million lottery ticket unclaimed that expires today...wow! There must be a story behind that...can you imagine not claiming that much mney, even if only to give it all away? Wonder why it was never claimed?

So question for today....one day left off work...What shall I do?

Borrowed this off CQ

Good to hear your dad is doing better.

I did your "New Year's Resolution" thingy and it tells me to eat more chocolate syrup. Ew. I think I'd rather stick to YOUR resolutions!

Happy New Year!

My biggest fear when I buy a lottery ticket, is winning and not knowing it.

I'm sure it was someone like me who bought the ticket and never bothered to check to see if he/she won. Bummer.

Sorry to hear about your father. I hope he's up and running in no time!

I sure would like to win that lottery! I'd even take half and be happy.

My resolution finder said I should travel to Costa Rica - and I've already been there. So now what?
