Goodness...I was a grumpy old biddy yesterday...thank you all though for 'listening' even if you did roll your eyes heavenward and presume I'd run out of meds again...
It's the time of year when we're expected to come all over jolly and it isn't always easy.
Anyway...today has been good. My e-mail, which was suffering from a dose of something, appears to be back in working order...Max kept telling me to check it and I didn't like to say it'd gone all funny...what with not being able to remember a security question or open a PDF it's a wonder I can switch the 'putor on...but I do have a little teeny weenie grumble 'cos dear Max sent me an advent calendar...one of those Jacquie Lawson ones...and erm...it won't open...says it's damaged and she'll be ever so cross...I was certainly very cross 'cos I love those calendars.
The bag I was struggling with yesterday came right when I went back to it this morning...but there are obvious glitches, so I'm making another one, having learnt from the mistakes on the first. It's for Caitlin's birthday on Friday...she'll be thirteen on Friday 13th in the year 2013...
And I made an apron for Wendy...not a soppy apron to wear while cooking the supper or baking a cake...but one with several pockets in the front to keep her baccy and lighter and 'phone...there's a extra pocket for a supply of Valium...!
The postie brought a letter from England to say Himself is getting the fuel allowance before Christmas...and here I have to confess to being a bit bewildered, though I'm certainly not complaining. We heard from someone last year that we could apply for the fuel allowance from England because we'd once been resident there. So I filled in the forms, which were incredibly simple...sent them off...and lo and behold €200 was put in our bank account. And that's in addition to the allowance we receive in Ireland.
It's totally mad to give us extra cash when we don't even live there...but we did pay vast amounts of tax when we were working so I suppose it sort of evens itself out...
I'm not going to feel guilty about it anyway...not after I read English MP's have a big pay rise...like they need it.
