Another working week done with - i'm SO GLAD i don't have to work any more. When i look back on by 44+ years of work, i can honestly say i rarely had a job i actually liked, although there were nice people along the way who softened the experiences.  i had a lot of jobs, as a consequence i guess and in those days, it was a lot easier to change jobs and trying for a better one.  Rather like changing where you lived, which was also pretty easy but you had to be careful as providing a month's rent in advance wasn't.  Still when i look back, all those changes did provide me with a lot of acquaintences and some some friends too.  i can't regret that.  Coming back to England and job hunting in a limited area in North Yorkshire was another thing altogether and very hard.  It would probably have been a lot better if i had been able to go to a big city but i was tied to the north as that was where Mum was living and i had come back to live with her.  She and Dad had picked a quiet area on outskirts of a small town, quite nice if you were their age and older, but totally bad for me. Everyone in the park was 20-30 years older than me.  Also the workforce in the North is so clannish, it was almost impossible to make friends.  That's enough of that anyway.

Our Council Champion came by this afternoon to look at the debris and the fence.  i don't think he realised just how much wood - and bags of unopened cement & some sand - there actually was.  He's going to email the contractors again and i'm to report back to him if it's all still there next Friday.  i'm sure the Council can make use of it all, but they have to warn the company if they have to remove it, they will keep it.  Will had a look at the rest of the fence and agreed it looks unfinished and parts really are a botch job.  The saga continiues.

i had a lovely night out last night having dinner with my friend at the 9's Restaurant and as we hadn't seen each other for a while, we had a good goss and catch-up.  Their food is good and with the all-you-can-eat buffet, you'd be hard pressed not to like something.  There's Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Thai, Italian pizzas, Spannish paella and plenty of veggies and salad too. Their dessert section is amazing and there are two chocolate fountains [white and milk], plenty of little fancies, Eton Mess, little mousses, lots of marshmallows & fruit and a soft-serve ice-cream machine!  There is no time restriction [until they close] and you can relax and have a good time.  *If you can ignore the occasional screaming toddlers!*

i'm all recovered from the biopsy and have a follow-up appointment next Wednesday, when i hear the results - fingers crossed.  i had my 3-monthly B12 shot and had my diabetic bloods done earlier in the week.  i've been on iron tablets too and they will check to see if i need to keep taking them - oh joy, more tablets.  i swear if you shook me, i'd rattle! Apart from that, i'm not too bad *taps wood* and have finally seen the back of that horrible cough.  i'm still waiting on getting my teeth fixed as when i finally got to see my dentist, he took an x-ray and promptly said he'd refer me to Brookfield's Clinic.  Just as well as he really isn't a dental surgeon, but heavens only know how long this referral will take as they are NHS and always busy.  i hate not being able to eat properly...

i'm taking myself off to see 'The Great Wall' and latest King Kong film [with Tom Hiddleston, yum!] next week, on my own as Anna will be away, doing her house/cat sitting stuff.  Both films are boasting spectacular special effects and y'all know i love that!  i'll let you know what i think.
Okay, that's about it for now.  Have a great weekend!
Love that cat!
