Each Thursday I try and fine the 'right' things that have happened that day or during the week and this week that have been several of them.
On Saturday night we went to Kelmscott (to our daughter and son-in-law's home) for a sausage sizzle as the day before it had been their eldest daughter's birthday (she is our eldest granddaughter). A very pleasant evening and quite cool as well which was a blessing and I always so enjoy it when the family get together.
On Monday we had a visit from my late friend Judy's youngest son Richard. It was a complete surprise and it is always great to see him. We enjoyed Subways for lunch and I've promised to supply him with copies of his family tree which I researched for his mum some years back. This is Richard chatting with Phil down at Rockingham last year:
Today I had a telephone call from my daughter to tell me her doctor says she must not return to work until 24th February which I completely agree with. I've been worried that, although the knee is doing really well, she could suffer permanent nerve damage in her leg and now feel 'right' about her doctor looking after her so well. K now has to rest and take it easy as much as possible while still doing the appropriate exercises she has been shown. She will be doing some work projects at home so won't be completely bored. Pity I don't live just around the corner so I could pop in for a cuppa but thinking about that perhaps not. I'd probably drive the poor woman potty.
Also today a telephone call from my nephew Steve who I met for the first time in January, 2012. He now has his own electrical business and we've been having him do some work for us at our old house and now it is all safe and up to date which is nice to know and very 'right' indeed. I'd rather pay a family member I can trust than a complete stranger to do the work. Steve too is into genealogy and we shared some more family information. This is Steve in his army uniform a few years ago. The black and white photo I think was taken when he was in the army reserves. He did two tours of Afghanistan:
The last and final 'right' is OUR LIGHT POLE IS UP. I call it ours as it is right on our verge so now all I need to do is to wait until it is dark and see if it is working OK, although it could take a day or two before it is connected. It will be so 'right' to have our end of the street with good lighting once again as for years it has been somewhat below standard.
