I've just got my first two grandchildren in the past six weeks.
Monica's mother is in hospital.
We've ordered a new carpet and suite for Friday week and the sitting room and dining room need to be decorated by then (ceilings, walls, skirting boards)
The next edition of the Community Voice needs to be put together by early next week.
The yellow Engine Check light has suddenly started appearing on my dashboard.
I'm in work 7am to 7pm tomorrow, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday.
I have no idea where I'm going to make time for the launch of Boyne Berries 10 in Trim on Thursday night but I fully intend to be there. I was disgusted with myself for missing the last one (got a serious headache on the afternoon) and I'm not missing this one. Always a very entertaining evening, extremely hospitable hosts and a great magazine to take home afterwards. We are also promised a launch by Peter Fallon, which was excellent the last time he did it.
For possibly the first time ever, my poem is quite short. You know the way stammerers never shut up? Well, I'm up and down this time!! Everybody will be happy.
