Have been busy working again, which is great, as i had begun to enjoy being lazy and needed a bit of a kick to get me going. The agency sent me to a new office complex that was being landscaped where i helped with planting and mulching. The weather was foul and the ground got stickier and stuck to my boots and my spade and the wheelbarrow wheel until it stopped going round, so everyone was wet and rather muddy. It was a big team, mainly of agency people from all over the world, we had a laugh and worked hard, they were all fit and in their early 20's but i kept up with them and was exhausted by the end of each day.
Julia and Paul invited me over for a wonderful meal and to meet their new son Benjamin which was great, Lyn and Paul were there too and it was so nice to see everyone again and hear their stories. I stayed on for an extra day and relieved Julia from childcare on her own, which i now realise can get a bit boring after a while. I had great fun playing with lego and going to the park with Ben and chatting with Julia about all sorts of things and putting the world to rights.
A massive "Well Done" to all at Coolings Nurseries ( i worked there for many years) who presented a cheque for £3000 to Breakthrough, a cancer charity, at a big party the other night. You should all be very proud of yourselves. It was a great event and a good opportunity to catch up with so many friends that i haven't seen for ages.
