Good morning my dear and how are you today? I know it isn’t long since we last spoke but I appear to be having a busy week and if I don’t keep you up to date with what is going on, then you’ll grumble if I forget to tell you something. Yes, you do moan at me! I’ve known you long enough to understand the way your mind works, and you’ll think that I’ve deliberately kept something a secret from you if I don’t go into enough detail.
However, there isn’t anything to be concerned about – it’s just that my time appears to be rather limited at the moment. Right let’s start off by telling you that we had a lovely Knit and Natter morning at the library on Monday. We had a full house of attendees and a couple of people even managed to do a bit of knitting!
Giselle came and had a cup of tea with me the other afternoon – I forget which day it was, as they all tend to run into each other and it doesn’t really matter anyway. She brought some scones and a few macarons with her. They were, as usual, absolutely gorgeous. She told me that Jane has had several conversations with her and they have now decided how they are going to organise themselves before the wedding. As far as I understand it – although G was a little giddy and very enthusiastic about everything – Jane will be arriving on the Thursday before the wedding. I’ve booked her into the hotel/motel near to the new village hall where we are holding the reception so that they will have a couple of days to prepare everything before the event.
I thought you may be interested to know that Alex has been to see our solicitor this week, but apart from a very quick call from him, I don’t have any details as yet. I think it may be the weekend before I find out what was said. I’m happier now that I know we’ve taken legal advice, regardless of the result. I’m sure that nothing will be straightforward, but very few things are!
Oh yes, I’ve also had lunch with Mrs. M this week. We both went to Knit and Natter and then afterwards we went to the Roasted Bean for a snack. It’s becoming something of a habit now, but it is convenient after spending the morning at the library. It gives us a bit of a chance to have a little natter on our own, as when you’re together as part of the whole group it’s impossible to have a proper conversation with one person. We both had poached eggs on toast, which is something that we enjoy and then Mrs. M had a scone and I had a piece of chocolate brownie.
It was about 2pm when we arrived back, so Mrs. M went directly back to her apartment and left me here. By the time I had a little read and did a spot more knitting it was time for me to make my tea. The day had simply disappeared, as do all my days just at the moment.
Hold on for just a minute! I knew that I had something else to tell you. It seems that both Georgie and I now have a second outfit – the one for the reception. I found something very smart for Georgie and a rather comfortable long skirt and top for me. If the weather is very cold I will be able to wear a pair of leggings under the skirt. I like to be prepared for all eventualities!
Well, I’m sorry – this was only going to be a quick update – it’s a little shorter than my usual posts, but not quite as brief as I anticipated. Mind you, I ramble on all the time – you know that, so you shouldn’t be surprised.
Right then, I better get on with today before it goes the way of all the others this week. As Always –
With Love – Jan xx
