New computer. People dying. Family stuff. Work. Social stuff. Life is hectic. We are two people without children and not many friends. Why is this so?
I am writing this on my tablet as Little Jo is in my computer chair. Her mothers are staying in a nearby hotel celebrating their anniversary. The hotel was cheap and as they discovered, for a good reason. They have been to the tennis today. As a model employee, work offered me free tickets to the tennis. My reply was a sugary sweet 'thank you so much for thinking of me but I would have to take a sickie (sick leave) to attend'.
Little Jo and R made pizza and salad for dinner tonight. Little Jo proclaimed she did not like our variety of lettuce leaves in the salad. She said someone called either Horrible Henry or Honourable Henry was paid £2 to eat something when he was holidaying in France. I said, Little Jo, if I pay you $2, will you eat the lettuce? No, was the reply. £2 is $6. Nice try Little Jo. I think about $4 and I am not paying you. The way our dollar is going though, it may well be $6 soon.
Cast your mind back to when you were eight. Did you have some knowledge of currency exchange rates? I sure as hell did not. Are we bringing up over knowledgeable monsters?
