Monday I woke up at 7:15 instead of 6:30. Not a great start to my day however I did actually manage to arrive at work on time. Scarlett was miserable when I got in the car at 5pm. She was just so whingy so she went to bed dead on 7pm. I had some dinner and mom and I watched some TV. I came up to bed later and folded up some of Scarlett’s clothes and packed them in a box. I have lots more to throw in so I’ve left the box open for now.
Tuesday I got to work on time. It was a busy morning but a slow afternoon. I hate that. But I was up-to-date with everything and all my emails were filed so that’s good. Scarlett was a bit happier but she’s still a bit grumpy. Her nose is runny and she coughed a bit in the night.
Today [Wednesday] Mom is training at work so she’s out all day and my Grandad will look after Scarlett when my Nan goes to work at 5 if my mom isn’t back to pick her up. She says she will pick her up ASAP then come home. It may be before my her friend drives me home. She works in my company, in a different department and she finishes at 5:30 so on Wednesday’s she drives me home. I stay in my office till 5:30. So today she is taking me home. I finished book 7 of the DI Dixon series. Number 8 comes out in May so I have pre-ordered this. I read another book and now onto book 9 of the year. Not bad for only being in the 3rd month of the year.
16 years today since my uncle passed away. He was only 20 when he committed suicide. I try not to talk in too much depth about my family. For their privacy, respecting that they won’t want their lives all over the internet so I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned him before. Maybe I have. He was very troubled, drugs and running away from home as a teenager. He had mental health problems and eventually it lead him to jumping in front of a train, March 21st 2002. He may be gone but he’s certainly not forgotten. We shall visit his grave tomorrow [during lunch] and I always say Hi.
