Memory

My earliest memory, honestly, goes back a very long way. It's not all that pleasant, either, which may be why it made such an impression on me, but it ends up all right.

I'm in our living room, at West End, and it must be early evening because the light is on and I'm looking at it. I can't move my arms and my face hurts, just for a moment, and I cry. Next thing there's a bottle teat in my mouth and I can taste the warm milk and my mother is cuddling me. That's it - end of scene. Years later I mention the memory to my mother and she tells me I had a boil, spot, whatever on my cheek and she had to, gently, bathe it and squeeze it. She says I was 9 months old at the time.

I must be around the same age for the next memory....

Forth Bridge House Again

Posted 17-10-2008 at 18:52 by West Ender

It's about 6 weeks since I first got the quote. I had 3 plumbing firms round but this one, although not the cheapest, impressed me most and I've been able to see examples of this firm's work as 2 of my neighbours used them. Both examples are exceptionally attractive and done to a very high standard.

I rang and said I was happy with the quote and would like them to do the job but he said October 27th was the earliest date as they were going on holiday for 4 weeks. Well, OK, it's not desperately urgent and it's worth waiting for. After all, it's taken me over a year to get round to arranging it, even with the leak. What with being ill and the long, long recouperation it was an effort to get the ball rolling so I wasn't going to...

All Over For Another Year

I got a good, unbroken, 6 hours sleep on Friday night. All was quiet, not a peep. Unfortunately Laura has an internal alarm clock that goes off at about 6.15 every morning. She'll pop into the bathroom, go to the loo, and slip back into bed for another hour. Saturday morning was no exception and Laura woke and crept out of the room, where her 4 friends were sound asleep. Sadly, they were not all quite as sound asleep as they might have been. The sound of the door softly opening and the duvet being pulled back was enough and within 5 minutes the air was filled with the chatter of young female voices.

Being deaf in one ear can have its advantages. If I lie with my good ear on the pillow I can hardly hear a thing so I was able to...

Twelve Hours To Go

Posted 10-10-2008 at 22:28 by West Ender

It's Laura's birthday, she's 9. When ideas for a party came up she said please could she have a few friends for a sleep-over. She's been to a couple. We eventually agreed.

Six were invited but one couldn't come as she's gone into hospital today to have her tonsils out and one couldn't come as she's allergic to our cat. She came for tea a couple of months ago and ended up with a rash and a slight asthma attack. That left four of them plus Laura.

Savannah arrived first. She's a nice, quiet child but she's a little "old for her years" - very body-image conscious (how sad at 8 years old) and only wears "trendy" clothes. Vicky came next, she's one of Nik's Brownies, along with Laura and Savannah, and...

The Young Musician

Posted 06-10-2008 at 20:22 by West Ender

Brass instrument lessons are held every week at school but, so far, Laura hasn't had to bring one home.
"It's different to playing the clarinet, Nana," Laura said tonight as we did her clarinet practice. "You have to blow a raspberry into the mouthpiece to make a note and that's why your cheeks puff out." Mummy has had a word with Miss Johnson, at school, and told her that when it comes to playing music, the clarinet comes first for Laura. Miss Johnson, it turns out, used to play the clarinet herself so she's quite happy about that. She says the brass playing is part of the curriculum so they have to do it but she realises Laura may not make it a priority.

Laura says she, herself, and Anna and Vicky...
