BL, thinking of you today.
Pat, some people just don't want to accept help.
When OH gets those "can you just confirm your details for me & we'll get the money transferred" phone calls, he asks them what details they've got, so he can confirm them. Do they really not know the meaning of "confirm", or are they just using the formula their bosses have given them? Anyway, stringing them along for as long as there's time for, then laughing at them, seems to make them go away...
I'm off to help with turf-laying at my son's house near York this weekend. Not the easiest job; he's adapting the hard landscaping left by the previous owners, so it will be a circular lawn with an off-set circular patio in it. Lots of cutting will be involved... hopefully not too much swearing
On Sunday I've got an all-day choir rehearsal in York. Then I'm going bramble-bashing on an estate working party at Lee Abbey, a Christian conference centre near Lynton in North Devon from Monday to Friday next week, followed by a singing day in Blackburn on Saturday. Back to normal on Sunday week!
So not much contact from me for a week or so. Have fun while I'm away...
