Downsizing

Well this month - well the first week has been busy for me - first of all we have been building up since I came home from my hols to moving my dad from a 3 bedroomed house to a 1 bedroomed bungalow - to give you some idea of the extent of this he had been in the 3 bedroomed house for 46 years with my mum when she was alive and 3 kids (obviously now left home of course) - you can imagine the STUFF we had to remove - my garage is full of boxes of paraphenalia ready to go to a car boot sale........ my darling husband has been whinging about the fact that the garage is full of these boxes - well it doesnt get used for a car so what's his problem....... anyway we finally moved him/furniture last saturday - 1st July - by the end of the day I have to say I was totally and utterly exhausted so dread to think what he felt like. I had to leave him and my sister her DH and his brother at 4pm as I was going to see the Rocky Horror Show with friends that night - good job its a noisy show otherwise might have fallen asleep - left dad's and forgot I still had some things in the boot of my car - oh well he can have them this weekend - have been round a couple of times during lunch hour to finish bits off for him - he is now safely ensconced in his 1 bed bungalow which is so much nicer than being in his 3 bed house - he now only has 4 rooms and a hall to clean whereas before he had 8 rooms to keep tidy and to climb stairs etc.... I feel happier as well as it is warden controlled and she has been round a couple of times to introduce herself to him. Well thats this week - oh apart from the fact that I have been interviewing for a new secretary at work - please someone tell me where all the unemployed are as we only had 6 CV's sent to us and only one of those had legal experience - WHERE ARE ALL THE LEGAL SECRETARIES - I know they are out there somewhere I just wish they would have applied for the job so I could compare them to each other and pick the best one (hopefully) to do the job.
Well am off to my all day crop now so will come back another day to update you on my dad's bungalow and any other trivial things that may happen to me over the next few days :)
