Gosh I hope 2016 improves! Nothing can take away the grief for my daughter Samantha. She would have been 49 on 18/08/2016, so Thursday will be a difficult day.
Some 'dreaded lurgi' has been doing the rounds at school and I have had several days off--going back tomorrow,
And on Saturday, 20th, my daughter Jessie, her two boys and I are moving into a beautiful rented house in a great suburb--and the house is directly across the road from the school both boys attend. No more missed buses! But what chaos!! Jessie and I both are teachers, and schools are almost never close to places like banks and post offices. Nor is there much private time to make private calls of a financial nature. There is a lot of packing to be done, but two of Samantha's children (aged 20 and 15) are here, so I am hoping they will find time between social engagements to lend a hand.
At the beginning of the year, Jessie started working in a special needs school. Not long after she commenced her teacher training (she had formerly been PA to a barrister), her husband deserted her, but she managed to get through.
But, for me, there is a light is at the end of the tunnel as far as WA is concerned. When order returns, I'll be able to concentrate and perhaps make a little money.
What happened to someone's suggestion that we buy from Amazon via each other's websites? I thought it was a great suggestion, and have been waiting wistfully ever since.
I wonder what will happen next.
