I feel yuck! I have a cold, yucky throat and sinuses. Mum has it too but because she is older and frail she has it worse and can't stop coughing. I will be better in a few days, I hope so anyway.
Michael and I started cleaning a second small school this week. It has about 300 students. It is a pretty nice place. Also because we start there later in the afternoon it is easier to clean as there are no kids running in and out of the toilets that we have to keep stopping for. The extra hours I get from there will be most welcome in my pay packet.
The driving lessons are going along well, I have to tell Michael less each time we go out for a drive. He has been driving to and from work and between jobs for the last week. He also drives at every opportunity and is keen to do so which is better than before. Pretty good as most of his earlier driving was done on country roads and not around the city. Still needs some work on that clutch though. It has to be practiced until it becomes second nature and you don't think about it any more.
Oh I don't know what to write here tonight. Must be my fuddled brain with this cold bug.
I have been watching a silly show on telly for the last few weeks called "Celebrity Singing Bee" It is quite funny. The contestants have to fill in missing lyrics to songs to win money for their nominated charity. It is quite funny. It just finished and I enjoyed it. I don't always get the lyrics right. It seems that I do better with the older songs than the newer ones. Am I showing my age.
Or might I have just had more time to spare when the older songs were around so I took more notice of them. Surely it can't be my memory could have deteriorated over the years? Ha ha.
I think tonight I will dope myself and have a really good sleep for a change so I feel brighter tomorrow. I have not been sleeping well. Waking up about 3 in the morning, laying awake for hours and not getting back to sleep until it is time to get up. Seems to be the thing since moving to this house. Maybe I just need a new me. Whinge, moan, groan. I have it bad today. C'mon it can't be that bad I just pressed the spell check icon and didn't have any spelling mistakes. Only colloquialisms that I meant to be there.
This is going no where. Good night.
Love Linda.

G'Day Linda ~~ I am so sorry you are full of cold and your Mum also. I hope you both get better quick smart.
Thank you for your comments and for visiting to read the jokes. Glad you visited Kerri's blog. She is an Aussie married to an American. Her garden is wonderful. Take care, my friend and feel better soon. Love, Merle.

Hi Linda, sorry to hear that you and your mum have been got at by the monster cold. There must be something written in the cold guidelines that all those inflicted must have restless night sleep and be fully awake at 3am argh*!* Hope you are both feeling better soonish.
