I am not long back from my six weekly visit to the Hairdressers and all the little extra treats there. I alway come home feeling really good, pampered and dare I say it myself, rather presumptuous, I think I look good.
I don’t drive so have to have a cab there and back, I always use the same cab company, makes it easier for me, and I know that they are usually friendly and helpful, especially as I am not so steady on my feet as I was a year or so ago.
Coming home this afternoon, talking away to the cab driver, I do tend to talk. We were discussing Politics, the World – is there a cab driver who does not know all there is to know about such things. Well anyway I enjoyed talking to this young fellow.
As we drew up to the House, he said “do you live there all on your own”, I am always rather weary about questions like that but I told him No I have two grown Sons who live in the House as well. Which I do, we more or less live separately, meeting for meals. Last night my eldest Son prepared a great meal – I so thoroughly enjoyed the Salmon Fillets he lightly fried with Mozzarella, Tomatoes and Green Pesto on top, accompanied with lovely asparagus Spears. Topped off with Scottish Raspberries set in Raspberry Jelly smothered in Irish Double Cream – never mind the calories!!
I came in chuffed this afternoon from the hairdressers, the cab driver said to me “how many Grandchildren do you have” when I told him I didn’t have any he said “I’m sorry I didn’t mean to offend, only you look just like a Nana, would you like some” I told him “Yes indeed” and he said ” I thought you were a nana because you look all soft and kind”. When I told my Sons they laughed and said “he doesn’t know you”, I’ll forget they said that. Seriously I so loved the complement of being a Nana – who knows maybe one day, or in my dreams I will be one.
I’ll Dream On. Maybe it’s Spring has got to me, my favourite time of Year and my favourite Months April and May.
