After a stressful week I was hoping this week was better, but it started with Peter receiving a notification that his card had been used for over a £1,000 at 3am on Sunday morning. I had to sort my mum's TV licence, it was £112.86 for the year up till her 75th birthday. The guy on the phone told me that price 3 times, then said as the card transaction went through 'that's all gone through £150' I'm now waiting for a refund by cheque.
I've also been battling with our daughters care home as to why they don't inform as to why they don't inform us of new management, changes in care and medical appointments. They know I'm in the UK each summer and have all our contact details. She's been put on new medication which seems to have made her very sleepy.
It's been week of twitter, instagram, blogging and real life friends.
I caught up with all my paperwork, booked coach and hotel for the airport before Greece next week and scheduled some blog posts.
217 Sunday Met twitter friends Rosie and Simon for coffee in Newport, did a food shop, had lunch and went to see Mama Mia with a friend I met in Uni 20 years ago. Spent the evening in on paperwork.
218 Monday Off to Ross to meet Instagram friend Alison @rubbishwife and had dinner at my mums.
219 Tuesday Met a twitter friend Pat for coffee, did very little else all day.
220 Wednesday Spent the morning in reading a book. Coffee with mum in the afternoon, visited the Things then dinner with Kath and the twins, locally. I met Kath the night my father died.
221 Thursday Drove to Gloucester in the morning to see child 1, food shopped, cleaned the flat and dinner with Andy and Vicki who got married last month.
222 Friday Woke to rain, glorious rain then remembered I had food shopping to do, on foot. The lovely Mary from Over 40 and a mum to one blogger and her son came to stay for the weekend.
223 Saturday After breakfast we drove through the Wye Valley to Chepstow, stopping at The Old Station in Tintern for coffee, then onto the Abbey and Chepstow Castle, driving home through the Forest of Dean and visiting the Kymin before getting back to Monmouth. The boy was still going strong after tea so we took a mammoth walk round Monmouth, through fields and to the castle, we were both broken.

Ah, you've had a lovely week catching up with friends. Love that Mary is in t shirt and Monkey's in a coat! Sign of weather changingReplyDelete
only cause mary got dived bombed by a seagull with her coat taking the full forceDelete
Glad you've had time to catch up with friends this week, although it sounds like you've had a few frustrations too! I can't believe the care home would make those changes too. Love the photo with you and Mary and her son.ReplyDelete
it's just one thing after another in my life and Mary can now tell you, it's not my faultDelete
How lovely to meet up with all your friends. And how stressful to deal with the money issues, care home etc. Hope they sort out the new meds for your daughter. Beautiful landscape!ReplyDelete
it was a lovely week and i won't let go about our daughters issuesDelete
Sounds like a lovely week meeting up with friends.ReplyDelete
Hope things get sorted with the care home and they keep you in the loop
thank you, shame i have to involve social services again thoughDelete
It does sound like another stressful week. That is so wrong that they change things in the care home without letting you know.....I am glad you had plenty of time with your friends xReplyDelete
the issue with the care home happens all the time, drives me up the wallDelete
I still haven't fully recovered!! It was so lovely to spend time with you, and i'm so grateful for the offer of putting us up, it meant a lot. It's such a pain when cards get cloned, I had it with my card a few years ago, hope you get it sorted out quickly #365ReplyDelete
Peter's card issue was resolved before i saw you, had a great week, come visit anytimeDelete
very anoying with the card, ours took 16 weeks to get the money back years ago.ReplyDelete
If they could take the licence money by card why could they not return it by card?
Wow at so many friends and visits and how lovely to have Mary and Monkey. Chuckled at hime in his jacket hood up etc and you two sat in shirt sleeves
still waiting for licence fee to be returned, we had a lovely visitDelete
Great that you have met up with friends and bloggers this week. I wanted to go to Ross on the way home from our Wales holiday as that is where Chris' great grandmother came from #project365ReplyDelete

Sounds like a lovely week and you managed to see so many friends. Hope you have a lovely holiday now.ReplyDelete
