Quick summary of an ordinary life

I like to think I live a very ordinary life: husband, son, snake (escaped), cat (disappeared) and hens (killed).

I’m overwhelmed with work lately, so in this post, I just want to quickly share with you some brief moments in my life the week.

When a child grows up and flies away, you tidy up their bedroom and reminisce of the time lost. Since the fox killed our hens, we did the similar thing: cleaned up their house.

If you haven’t seen a modern chicken coop before (which looks like an old iMac), here are a few images after we’ve dismantled it.

I also told you I spent £500 on a new pair of ordinary glasses.

Two weeks after my eye test, my glasses finally arrived. It often amazed me how long it takes to get any work done in this country.

I wore my new lilac frame (previously black frame) home — remember, this new gadget cost me £500, and the colour and shape were completely different.

I stood in front of my husband, and asked “Look at my face. Anything different?”. Twenty seconds later, he struggled with this answer. “Your hair looks slightly different.”

      I phoned my GP last week, and the automated message replied that the appointment waiting time is 4 weeks. It takes at least 4 weeks to see your GP in this country! People living outside the UK must think it’s totally mad.

      Yes, I think after clearing up the garden, sorting out some mess, we’d get a few more hens, but not just yet. We don’t have a big garden, so it’s time to allow the grass to grow back, and ‘spring’ clean the garden. (Do you have a few hens to spare? Just kidding.) I really admire your garden and your flock of hens. I think you’re a better guardian than I’m.

    It just means that he relates to your essence, and doesn’t care that much about the minor nuances at the surface. You are a lucky woman.
