Life's been very changeable recently with plans made and changed or cancelled because of illnesses or other things.
Daughter had tickets on Friday for the opera in London for her and the girls but E wasn't well enough to go and R then said she didn't want to go and not worth spending the train fare to even try to persuade her, so I received an early text to say I wasn't having O for the day as planned. Friday had already changed for us as we had been invited out to dinner, so the end of my day with O would have been tight timing, hoping his dad would be back in time as Daughter wouldn't be. Our dinner date was then cancelled as our hosts sadly had a family funeral. We will rearrange of course but for now we were relieved that it made our day a little more relaxed. Then ironically we weren't having O anyway.
Then followed a whole text conversation because O was upset not to be spending the day with me even though Daughter changed her day to go to the home ed group instead so they came here for lunch and Daughter and R went out soon after. E stayed here doing quiet things and O and I made biscuits with his dinosaur 3D cutters.
E was spending the weekend with her dad and as R had a really busy Saturday Hubby had offered to drive E to the meeting place and as he had the bowling travelling league on Sunday at Heathrow Airport Bowl they had all arranged for him to collect E there Sunday night too.
We checked with E Friday that she felt well enough to still go, but another early morning text told us that E's dad wasn't well enough to have her, so that trip was off. However, E didn't feel well enough to hang around with Daughter while R did her activities so she came to stay here with me. .... and if E was coming here then O wasn't going anywhere but here either.
Are you keeping up with all this? Well would you believe it, the Sunday bowling was cancelled due to the team captain not being able to gather together a full team..... Thank goodness Hubby now wasn't collecting E!
On a much less confusing subject, and far more exciting, after many barren years one of our orchids has flowered 😆
