IT’S SATURDAY DID YOU FORGET ME?
Since my licence has been suspended for six months and I so cannot drive, my son has been picking me up on a Saturday morning to take me home for the weekend. This is after he finishes work as Night Manager in a local hotel. It entails my being up and ready to leave at 7.40 am. That’s really early for a retired woman.
Once I slept in and was in the shower when he arrived so kept him waiting for a time. So now I set the alarm and
jump climb out of bed at around 6.45 so that I can be ready for him. Usually when we speak during the week one of us comments on the Saturday arrangement. This week neither of us did and consequently my son didn’t arrive to pick me up. So here I am dressed and ready but with nowhere to go. I’ll use this unexpected time for ….what?
Never mind. My son was very apologetic when I called him at 8am and he is going to pick me up tomorrow instead, but at a more reasonable time of 12 noon. So back to reading and writing for me.
