Thanks for popping in. It’s been another paperwork day. There’s so much to do when your Dad dies. And our Dad had so many irons in the fire! It’s like a jigsaw puzzle crossed with a minefield actually. The blimming insurance companies / pension companies change their names or sell out to other companies quite often over 40 years – and we have to figure out which policies are which. Fortunately, our lovely Pete at work is helping – and what an immense help he is. Came over to the house early this morning, and we just started nudging the processes along to the next stage. One does have to wonder how elderly people who lose their partners manage to navigate their way through this deluge of quite complex and very confusing bureaucracy. I’d struggle without Pete for sure; it would certainly take a lot longer! And Mum doesn’t even own a Mobile phone let alone a computer!
But we will get there. You just have to have a little stickatitability! (And a Pete…)
One thing is also becoming abundantly obvious: I cannot move too fast. I get all spacey and short of breath. Ah well. That’ll be the body telling me to slow down I guess. Best listen. Last time I ignored it, things didn’t go too well! I had optimistically suggested to Paul that I might be able to do my Sunday TV Show on 5th March. Both Pete and Dave shook their heads today, and said that would perhaps be a little premature. So perhaps mid month? We shall see.
Anyway, speaking of slowing down, look out for our new SLOW DOWN BOOK BOXES. They are so cool. I think they are actually on that Sunday TV show for the first time. A perfect way to store kits and projects that have lots of bits n parts. I’m sure Paul will be able to do a great job of the stamp and mixed media shows in my absence. He’s actually doing the Mixed media shows this Friday at 9am and 1pm. That takes guts. But he’s not just a pretty face!! I look forward to seeing his take on things x
Quote for today?
You see, I would so love to do some pottery, but it’s absolutely out of the question. Way too cold in the garage! But it’ll all still be waiting for me when I’m back in the saddle. And clay keeps. One day at a time, one thing at a time…
