Last week was a strange one.
To start with, the weather went back to being awful with massive flooding in other parts of the country, but just enough to make things wet and miserable where I am. Custard the dog enjoys the wet, though, so at least he had a good time.
Monday night was spoilt by my being kept awake by an inexplicable pain in my right side. I have no idea what it was, but it was so bad that I vomited. A couple of hours later it went as fast as it came, leaving me worn out for the next day. As a result I spent Tuesday on the sofa being waited on, catching up on DVDs - Hot Fuzz was the best one, a spoof Police movie set in a quiet English village that has had no (reported) crime for years. See it if you get the chance.
Wednesday was my daughter's last day at Junior school so we went to the leaver's concert and then out onto the field (hey the sun even came out!) where they all signed each other's school shirts and memory books.
Friday to Sunday saw us loosen the strings on our daughter, who slept over at a friend's house in the town and (this is the difficult bit) travelled there and back on the bus with her friends. We found this incredibly hard to do, but she did really well and sent us text messages to keep us informed.
On Saturday I went to a friend's house to play a wargame. Four of us fighting a small battle set in the Sudan in Victorian times, with the gallant British fighting off the natives and saving civilization. Great fun.
Now I have to think about work!
