First off I had a minor panic and major meltdown when I couldn't find the buildings insurance renewal email for the house we rent out in the UK. It had been sent to a different email address. Then I had to renew the contents insurance for the flat, my passport is almost full so I made an online application to do that on Tuesday. I finalised the accommodation and car hire for Greece in 2 weeks time and I still have to book transport and a hotel at Manchester airport.
The last few days I've been experiencing shooting pains in my left leg and side of my head, I often have this, I think it's the nerve damage at the base of my spine playing up again, I've also been a bit headachey and I don't think the heat is helping me much.
It's not been the most interesting week for photos either.
I'm co hosting #PoCoLo for August with Stephanie while Morgan is on holiday.
210 Sunday I'm sleeping over at my mums for the week as child 4 and 4a have exclusive use of the flat. Torrential rain when I walked to a friends to have a melt down at the thought of all the above. Out with Children 2, 2a, her parents and 4 & 4a for dinner in the local pub.
211 Monday Most of the day was spent drinking coffee and getting on top of all the calls I had to make and emails that needed sending as well out sorting out insurance for the flat. I spent some time with friends in the morning and popped in to see Thing 1, 2 and 3. At least there will be no questioning my identity, this is pretty much what I look like when I arrive at border control after a 7 hour flight.
212 Tuesday 4a flew back to Belfast. I took mum with me when I went to the passport office. On the way home we stopped for fuel and then the starting motor just died, I walked mum home then child 4 joined me for 3 hours while we waited for a tow.
213 Wednesday was spent in caffe nero sorting out contents insurance for the flat and replying to several hundred emails. I then cleaned the flat and rearranged the furniture to create more storage space for my fathers stamp collection, then 4 and I headed off to Cirencester to meet child 5 for dinner. I've now been relegated to the back seat and often get asked if I need to pee before we leave.
214 Thursday I had a new smart meter installed, then met a friend for lunch who gave me a very belated birthday girt, followed by spending the evening with another local friend and popping into the pub.
215 Friday I sorted through child 5 & 3 belongings they've left in the flat for storage and repacked. There are quite a few things they didn't want so child 4 helped me with rehoming. We called into see the 'Things' late afternoon. Passport came back today. Too hot and muggy, hoping for a storm soon.
216 Saturday Child 4 left early evening to return to Belfast, next stop for him the Falklands till the middle of December. i won't see him again until September 2019. I tidied and cleaned the bedroom and bathroom and did some washing. Off to the last night of the music festival later. It's T-Rex night.
On the blog this week is all about friendships. What makes a friend? Friendship is a mutual but not exclusive relationship. How much value do you put on your friends?
