What a week....
In the diary for Monday - walk on Malvern Hills with friend K.
At 8.15, just as I was about to leave for my friends house, Mum rang in a total panic. Dad had collapsed and she couldn't get him up again. We called for an ambulance and they checked him out. His heart is fine.... it was just a combination of fatigue, a virus and dehydration. A lot of water, sleep and some antibiotics have worked their magic over the rest of the week.
Unfortunately he knocked Mum quite badly on the way down so she was bruised (not great for an elderly HD sufferer).
I spent the day round at their house, generally looking after things and getting Dad to his own Docs later in the afternoon.
In the diary for Tuesday - coffee and catch up with fellow 'escapee Music Teacher' S.
Fortunately she texted to say that she had one of the bugs that's going round. I used the day to sort out a few more things for Mum and Dad. I also did my own food shop for the week while I was in Droitwich. I found that I was a bit 'wiped out and emotional' after the unexpected stress of the previous day.
In the evening we went to the Marcos Motoring Club monthly meal at a pub near Pershore. I wasn't really in the mood to be sociable... and a couple of people in the club really pushed my buttons during the meal. I know I was just over-tired so I'm not going to hold it against them!
In the diary for Wednesday Evening - Saltway Quilters Meeting with friend and next door neighbour J.
My first ever visit to a Quilters Meeting. The group are really friendly and welcoming. We'll definitely go again.
In the diary for Thursday - coffee and catch up lovely ex-colleague C.
C. texted me while I was at the Quilters meeting to say that she was swamped by work/planning and marking and would prefer to re-schedule our catch up to next week. I made the most of the unexpected free time to do several loads of washing .... and several happy hours of quilting!!!
In the diary for Saturday Evening - '90 Years of Romance' meal out with Mum and Dad
This weekend is the 67th anniversary of Mum and Dad's first date AND the 33rd anniversary of mine and Mark's first date, making 90 years of romance in total! Sadly we took the decision on Friday to postpone this meal because Mum and Dad aren't really well enough at the moment for a big meal in the evening. We hope that we'll have a meal out together in a couple of weeks time.
In the meanwhile I made a curry from scratch for the two of us and we enjoyed a nice bottle of wine.
I hope that this week is going to be a little bit more like the schedule I can see in the diary......
No surprises please!!!!!
