Good wishes go out to my mother-in-law Jan who is recovering in hospital after a serious operation, let's hope she's home really soon.
My dad's still getting better but I had to take him to Moorfields Eye Hospital last saturday as his left eye started giving him grief and the doctor said it was his iris that was stuck to another part of the eye, a common problem in someone who's run down after a long illness. They gave him some drops and it's nearly back to normal.
Two of my kids go to the States to see their mother again this week so it should be nice and quiet for a month without them around, not to mention 66% easier to keep the house clean and 66% less food to buy, also less washing, less electricity consumption, less shower gel the list is endless. If we could have our time over who the hell would want to have kids? Not me, it's just a total drain on my life!!
I've been fitted for ComCab now and I have done a few jobs on it. The first day (last Tuesday) I did a credit card ride out to Hatfield Peverel a few miles past Chelmsford and my luck has been in ever since as I have also done cash rides to Maidstone onto Sittingbourne (£140) and just this evening I took a squaddie back to his barracks in Aldershot via an old brass in Victoria, 45 Vincent Street in case you're interested. (£105, the journey, not the brass!! She was £60....according to the squaddie). He was telling me how he was on leave after a tour of duty in Iraq and that he was due to return there at 7am this morning, poor sod. After a nice ride out in to the sticks I like to put the radio on to pick up the local stations but my electric ariel is stuck on down so there hasn't been any of that this week, I must get it sorted soon.
