What a week.

It's been very busy on lots of fronts, so a quick catch up.

Last weekend there was a wedding......one of our eldest sons best friends married his lovely lady at a super hotel overlooking the sea from the cliffs around Bournemouth. Our son was the best man, he looked so dapper in his tails! The bride looked ever so scrumptious in a beautiful beaded ivory silk dress. It was so lovely to be there, most of our sons friends have been around us since they were small boys so it was like walking into a room full of family, there was a lot of laughter and reminiscing.

But it was tainted. Our son also lost his job. It is unfinished business, so I can't say anything here yet. He is fine now, in fact extremely relieved and happy to leave a company where a few individuals have been somewhat desultory and disingenuous, (not necessarily my favourite words)

He's already filling his time messing about with his new toy, (a car of course) and we are sure that when he finds his new position, it will be with a company that appreciates his inate people skills and direct honesty. In the meantime, I'm sure I can find him something creative to do!

Mother in Law's house is also on the market, so finally we have an end to the long journeys, endless decorating and cleaning of the last year, yippee!

We've just been plodding on trying to clear the pile of work, mainly rush seated chairs - we are winning the battle now I think, at least there is less to do than has already been done.

So a word or two of the week, (as I haven't done one for ages).

Desultory - lacking consistency, constancy, or visible order, disconnected; fitful.

Vindictive - characterised by spite or rancour, English law of damages - in excess of the compensation due to the plaintiff and imposed in punishment of the defendant.

Yes Willie, two words we don't use very often, but there are times when they are just perfect!!
