This may sound a bit jumbled but was truly a great day...

HHHL:
My oldest son came by with his family Sun morning from abt 11am-2pm... He and his wife AH and two of his children ET and H and mommy is due in Nov with another, L... I had a GREAT visit with them... Both of my sons live about 140 miles away...

Then Sunday afternoon from about 4pm-8+pm I was at the home of 4 of my other grandkids. Their mom is married to a guy and the oldest girl turned 13. About 20 ppl were there!.. ok, mommy M had AS prior to meeting my young son and they had S... Then split up Her new bf (who she married) had two more kids AR and MI... My son married a gal AL who had a dau E. they married and had two more kids, H and F... They were all there together. Then there were other young (to me anyway) adults with their kids whom I also knew from when they were babies... and also the father (John) of the mother of these last set of kids. (All confusing, right?) lol

He turned out to live here in town and is interested in the our history, so I being a historian, told him some things which whetted his appetite for more. So we are meeting Thurs where I can share some of this history with him...

AND it turns out that his daughter and her mother (divorced) have access to a stack of photos (abt 1910) and family papers of an older friend of theirs who passed away and left with them and they are going to give them to me to archive in our local history museum!!!

Between talking to John and enjoying the party and the company of all of the other adults and especially the 7 grandkids and two other kids who call me 'Grandpa' thet were there.

And when it came time for my young son and family to drive all the way home, his former gf and hubby made the stay until morning... I am so blessed that all these different ppl get along so well and are all friends.

Needless to say, I had a wonderful time...

Think I got the gist of that. In any case, I'm glad you were able to have such a great time with family and friends. Especially nice meeting someone with the same interest in local history that you have!


HL: had a nice, chill day. Played some games, watched some TV, studies some Japanese. I think I'll read for the rest of the evening.

LL: I'm putting on weight. ¬__¬ Need to eat less, and better.

You need to watch out for that and take steps against it while you are young and your body is best able to combat it. I didn't and the extra weight I have in middle age is incredibly hard and frustrating to control.

Also heart problems. I had a minor heart attack 5 years ago and it was a scary wake up call.

Get out and do physical things - cycling, walking, running, swimming. Whatever you can. You will really value that effort later, I promise.

Lowlight: boring day at work. I feel tired out from it after doing so little!

Highlight: I got more time to study at least. And for once, I got to a section in the grammar chapter where I already knew almost all of it! Usually I only know one or two things, so this is encouraging.

I agree 150% (yeah, yeah, I know, but I'm making a point) Lose it NOW when you can more easily. It is EXTREMELY difficult to lose when you get older... I know, unfortunately... I'm having trouble just trying to lose 5-10 lbs just so I can do a tandem parachute jump... I have to balance my diet with keeping my blood thinners in control; my diabetes blood sugar in control and still maintain my health.

Thanks for the advice, guys, I'll keep a handle on it. I'm not an unhealthy weight or anything just now, but I reckon I could do with losing half a stone maybe. Less snacking, less sitting on my butt all day.


WL: we have a new flatmate, just showed up today and moved into the empty room. Young guy from Nigeria. Seems pretty shy but I can totally understand that, moving into a place with three people who are already good friends must be kind of intimidating, plus he's just a first year and a long way from home. Hopefully we'll be friends, or that he'll make other friends at uni at least. Don't want him being lonely in there.

HL: so our oven door got jammed shut at the weekend and we had a cake in there, couldn't get it out until this afternoon. Turns out it was cooked pretty perfectly, didn't get too dry, we put some raspberry jam in the middle, made some tea-flavoured icing and put that on top, and damn is it good. Two thirds gone already :')
