Jotting this at work prior to S.E.S. training.
I have to say, I've felt a bit flat today. In part I put that down to a late night involving a solid workout. I think part of it, though, came from seeing something reposted in my Facebook feed involving the ex first thing this morning. I wouldn't have thought it would rattle me: I don't think about her much now, and I can't say I really even think about the Before-Time too much either. But, there you have it. I don't recommend it as a way to start the day.
This will be the first weekend in a couple of weeks that I won't have been away somewhere. Jennie and JP are coming up on the Saturday to mark her birthday, so that'll be good. I don't know if Fran or Michael are coming up as well, although one would expect so. An extended period with the old boy will be a little difficult though. The older he gets, the more argumentative he becomes, and he seems to get quite agitated if someone expresses a different view to him on almost anything. Honestly, at the first hint of an argument I'm finding it's easiest if I let whatever-it-is just drop. I know the clash-of-generations was already a cliche when Menander wrote The Dyskolos, but this isn't really even comical.
On the plus side, this weekend will bring a chance to skype with Grace and Rachel which is something worth its weight in gold.
Not much more to write just now. I imagine I'll put up a further post this evening when I'm back at the farm.
