Yesterday I went down Harwich with my dad to visit my nan - 90 last week.
Today it was my mum's turn, so I went to see her mum - who sadly is in much worse shape, and needs carers despite being 'only' 83. We also went shopping (new shoes, Staples, Co-op and Wilkinson's - stocking up some supplies for next term) and for lunch at Sloppy Joes. It's nice occasionally to have a complete day off, do some mostly fun things, a bit of shopping, and blow £100 - especially on those rare days where someone else is paying.
Somehow I don't think I'll be getting much work done this week. Our crappy old computer will probably restrict blogging activity too, but then I'm not likely to be doing too much of interest either.
