I came home last night from getting the weekly food shop, and there were no parking spaces near our house (made more difficult by one of the neighbours taking up 2 car spaces with 4 wheelie bins to keep it clear for a removals van) so I pulled up over the road on zig zag lines outside the school opposite. The sign states no stopping, Mon-Fri 8am-4.30pm, so I know I’m in the wrong for that.... but still, to get a parking ticket on New Year’s Day morning when the school isn’t even open... so annoying.
After the year we’ve had, it’s been a bit different. It was a lot later in the day that I made my usual trip to the cemetery, and Yasmin came with me today. It struck me that there seemed to be more people there than I recall seeing before... whether that was the time of day I went I don’t know - possibly, but I did wonder if some of them were perhaps experiencing it for the first time after losing loved ones this year due to covid... I could’ve been amongst those, visiting not only our little boy, CT this year, but thankfully the NHS prevented that from being the case!
Anyway... I won’t make this a long rambling post... but as it’s probably my only serious post of the year, I will just say thank you to everyone on here that has been so supportive over this year, especially when KJ was in hospital (big shout to Lagos for the shopping trips for caviar etc he did for us)... and to everyone for messages etc. It’s times like that show what a special place this is (as also shown in Newcy’s post earlier too!
Thank you TWTD, and a very merry Christmas to all... without Boxing Day footy spoiling it as it would probably have done!
