Getting better

Lucas spent the week in the hospital. Thankfully they didn’t have to graft any skin and because of the morphine, he seemed to cope well. Charlotte and Suraj stayed in the ward with him, though Suraj had to go back to work on Wednesday. Lucas was allowed home on Saturday afternoon.
 Sue, Sarah and I travelled to Newark to see Lucas on Sunday. Charlotte cooked a delicious Sunday lunch (I had seconds!) Lucas didn’t appear to have been affected too much, though understandably he was very clingy and wanted to be picked up all the time. Apart from his bandaged hands, you wouldn’t have known what he had been through. We only stayed a few hours before driving home.
It was Jamie’s 19th birthday on Saturday. He had driven down to Bournemouth on Friday with a friend, and they stayed in a hotel until Sunday. He didn’t say much about his trip, but I suspect Bournemouth is a bit too quiet for him.
This week, Sarah made a very nice jam-roly-poly sponge at school. I only got to know about this after it had been devoured, I didn’t get a sniff of any!!!
The doors have been replaced and I am now busy in the evenings waxing them. It’s a very tedious job and the fumes are quite awful. Sue has a poorly chest and I don’t think the doors are helping, but they do look nice.
On Friday I attended the Referees Society Annual Dinner at the Walker Stadium (Leicester City’s ground).  It was a very nice meal, and the guest speaker (Geof Probyn) was very good. I got home late around 1.30 am but was up at 7.00am finishing the waxing! During the afternoon I went to the Rugby Club to watch the second team play. Partway through the game, the referee ruptured his Achilles and I had to take over. It was a very sweaty affair sprinting around a rugby pitch in normal clothes on a hot Saturday afternoon (I paid for it the following day!)
This week I bought a new monitor for my PC, hopefully, as the screen is much clearer and bigger, I shall be making fewer mistakes. Also, this week, I was offered a job by a local IT company. They were keen to have me and are prepared to allow me to work when I want, but I am not sure I want to get involved in that type of work again. I have put them off until after the summer.
Lucas has had his bandages taken off and apparently, his hands are now in plastic bags (good sign, I think). Aren’t plastic bags bad for global warming?
Surprisingly, Jamie is still with Harriet.
