The Night Before School.


I've not been in work for three weeks
I am working this evening
The day has a feeling those Sunday evenings did before school.
Hey ho

I'm off to find an elderly neighbour now with a gift of half a dozen eggs.
This morning she found Camilla wandering in the road
( probably after a crash landing somewhere in the village) 
And returned her in one piece to the Ukrainian village

  1. Hated that Sunday evening feeling. It was always bath, hair wash and early night. Hope you have a good shift.

    4. Well I recall Horace Batchelor advertising his 'infra-draw method' on Radio Luxembourg's Top 20, Sunday evenings 11 p.m. to midnight. His gabbing on and on for seeming eternity, interrupting that vital chart, drove the pop music fans nationwide absolutely mad, self included!

  2. Funny, as an adult, I have grown to like going back to work on Monday. Glad Camilla is well.

  5. You'll be fine John and home before you know it! Have a little treat lined up for when you return. I bet your kind neighbour will be thankful for the eggs.

  7. Sunday, late afternoon, is the low point for us. That's when we have to get the garbage cans down to the road. Not only are they heavy, but it means another week has sped by and our personal timelines are that much shorter. I never think about that until it is garbage day.

  8. I hope there is a dearth of irascibility on the ward today... it's quite likely as I seem to have a lock on it.

  9. One of the many advantages of being retired, Sunday evening holds no special terrors !

  10. At least there isn't Songs of Praise on the telly so it could be worse.
    That's my memory of Sunday nights along with Last of the Summer Wine, mum knitting on the sofa, and dad dozing in his chair with the dog farting by his feet.

  11. I can remember as if it were yesterday... going to bed the night before my very first day of school, and that was nearly 70 years ago. Do you lay out your clothes the night before?

  12. Nothing in my life today is the same as my life a few months ago so any semblance to the Way Things Used Yo Be is treasured.
    I have had 2 most important people in my life doe suddenly and I am living in s new world called Florida.
    I would give just about anything to have a typical Sunday night like I used to have....

  13. I really have no idea what day it is!!

    After a weekend away and my Lovely Hubby being home all week, added to a Bank Holiday being tagged on at the end it's got me totally confused 😖

    If you say it's Sunday there's every chance I would believe you ..... it's not, is it ???

  16. People must relish finding your wayward birds. 6 eggs sounds like a good reward.

  17. When I was teaching (now retired - thank you Jesus), watching 60 Minutes meant the beginning of the end. I could feel the sadness just come over. However, I loved teaching. It was just the weekends that I loved even more.
