As Alex has a variety of medical needs, I regularly stop off at our village pharmacy to pick up filled prescriptions. On Friday I stopped by & there was a young male pharmacist manning the shop, who I had not met before. On handing over the prescription, he asked me if I was Alex's Grandmother?!!!
I resisted the urge to laugh & then cry, instead, assuring the embarrassed young man that, no, I wasn't at all offended.(yeah right!) As soon as the script was filled I went home & sat in front of the mirror for a time, trying to see what he could see!! I'd always felt I was holding up pretty well, but maybe it's time to rethink!!
I regaled my girlfriends with the story at dinner on Friday evening, to much raucous laughter & reassurance, & one even had a tale to match:
Kali (my partner in crime at Slimming World!) & her husband were lucky enough to be invited to a wedding in New York last weekend, & were in the hotel restaurant for dinner. The waitress asked could she bring Kali some juice or soda with her meal. Kali said she would like a glass of wine & was asked if she really wanted to order wine 'in her condition'!!! Now, Kali's youngest has just started school - enough said!
Nothing like a night out with the girls to keep things in perspective, but maybe I will be using the old mascara wand & lip gloss on a more regular basis!!!
As the sun was still in evidence on Saturday, albeit accompanied by a stiff breeze, we did a very British thing & got out the barbecue!! Hubby, as tradition requires, took control of the cooking & sausages, chicken, ribs & burgers were soon sizzling away!
Once that was all cleared away, my menfolk settled in front of the TV & I escaped to my craft space to scrap!! Well, it was National Scrapbooking Day after all!! 'Color Me Daisy' are running a Month Long Crop & I had made note of their first challenge - 'Happiness' : What it means to me' or 'What makes me happy'. I spent a blissful couple of hours working on this layout!
