C – next time I have some money I serously need to buy some bath towels. Just got washing in from line and mine are like cardboard and practically impossible to fold. Phoebe commented that no one needs to exfoliate in our house, as the towels are so rough they are like sandpaper!
S – could do with some new ones myself but am afraid they are at the bottom of my list with all the school trips to pay for. I am doing bank work today and was greeted at office with the words “oh, thank goodness you are here we are so short staffed – can you work the whole day?” Needless to say it is only 10.00am and there is bugger all for me to do, so what is that all about? Still, I am not complaining as I am getting paid. What is holiday house like today?
C – extremely messy as the group who were there for the weekend were, yet again, on a stag party – we seem to attract an awful lot of stag partiers. Found a wig and women’s underwear in the bin – am trying not to imagine!
S – sounds as if a fun time was had by all, except you and the ladies who help you clean. Hope your next lot are not as bad.

S – forgot to tell you, I was at Accident and Emergency with Sophie at the weekend – she had an allergic reaction to some crop. She was out and about with friends in the fields above the farmyard.
C – hope she is ok now. I am just at the hospital with Toby’s mother. Her cataracts are troublesome and the hospital car did not turn up, so I have brought her in. Phoebe is off school today. She is flopping around; we have a doctor’s appointment for this afternoon – heaven only knows what is wrong with her – can’t put my finger on it.
C – just at doctors now with Phoebe. Hope we can get to the bottom of this one but not holding my breath. Was in hospital all afternoon with mother-in-law. I asked the doctor if she could be fast tracked wither cataracts, as she is 92 and time is not on her side. He thought that was highly amusing and said he would do that for her.
S – well done in getting mother-in-law fast tracked – not easy to do in the NHS nowadays. Hope doctor is able to find out what is wrong with Phoebe.
C – the doctor could not find anything in particular but took some blood and urine. I am thinking there is really nothing wrong and that she needs to have a much “stiffer upper lip!” I have tramped all over that hospital today, first with Toby’s mother and then delivering Phoebe’s samples!! Oh, and by the way, I am apparently the worst mother in the world.
