I had my visitors for lunch yesterday - it was lovely to see them. I love my God daughter dearly and don't see nearly as much as I would like to see of her as I do see her. We lie literally opposite sides of the country. It is good to see her happy.
I so looked forward to them coming, I managed to cook a lunch of sorts but I totally forgot about giving them a sandwich and a piece of my birthday cake before they went (and they were too polite to say anything). I slept well and yet today I have literally been too tired to do anything other than sit and doze. Even reading was too much of a chore.
The truth is that entertaining of any kind is becoming too much for me - I am going to have to admit to being too old. The trouble is that I love people and having to admit to being too old is very difficult. At what point does one say 'I can't do this any more'?
My friend and neighbour H came round for a short visit late afternoon and we got on to the subject - I have suddenly found my blood pressure has rocketed and has to be investigated and she has problems along the same lines. We agreed that we are both getting 'past it'. In which case dear blog-friends you are going to become more important than ever to my well being. Watch this space.
