Full House – And Loving It ?
Rambling On… 20 November 2020.
What’s been happening in my neck of the woods?
It’s been wonderful having my daughter living here all week so she can work at her new job. After dinner tonight, Friday, she’ll be heading back home to her man and her fur babies for the weekend and will be back on Sunday, ready for Monday.
The weather has been up and down but that’s normal in our part of the world. The start of the week was around 25 degrees C and got progressively hotter as the week wore on.
This was a problem for my daughter. The reason being, she’s been working outside in the sun and since she didn’t know she’d be outside on Monday, she didn’t have on any sunscreen or a hat and she got burnt. Not badly, thankfully. Tuesday, she borrowed a hat, lathered herself with sunscreen, and took it to work with her to reapply. Wednesday was hotter but her boss managed to rig up an awning, so she’d be in the shade while she was working. Yesterday, Thursday was approximately 35 degrees C which was a bit hard to take since we haven’t had a lot of hot days consecutively and haven’t been able to acclimate. She’s been working on fixing the brakes on a bus that won’t fit into the workshop or on a hoist. Hence, working outside.
I feel sorry for my man and my girl when it’s hot since they’re doing physical jobs and don’t have the luxury of being in air-conditioned comfort. However, they stay hydrated and keep covered up so they aren’t burned to a crisp.
My son has a new girlfriend but he’s taking things slowly.
He met this lovely girl through my daughter since they’re best friends. During the lockdown, my daughter and her friend would group chat with my son and play games online together to stave off boredom.
Turns out my son and my daughter’s friend have a lot in common. Yes, I’ve met her, and I like her a lot.
Chris asked her out on a date last weekend for lunch since he had to work later that night. They ate then went bowling and had a good time.
I’m really happy for them both and they’re both taking their time to get to know each other better and not rushing headlong into things.
I think this could really work.
My son told me this morning that he feels as if he’s known my daughter’s friend forever.
To me that says everything because that’s how I felt when I met my man.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed for them and I hope all goes well.
Only time will tell.
I hope you are all staying safe.
Have a great weekend.
Stay safe, happy, sane, and healthy.
Love Becca Van xxoo.
What Have I Been Writing?
I’m still writing Beautifully Imperfect book 7 and am nowhere near finished. I’ve got ten days left to complete this book and I probably will still be writing on the last day of the month to finish it.
However, finish I will.
What Have I Been Reading?
A couple of nights ago, I finished reading T.L. Swan’s, The Stopover, the first book in The Miles High Club.
This story is an M/F romance and I have to say it was really enjoyable. What started out as a hook-up turned into so much more. There was drama with emotional conflict and of course, romance.
I’m not sure if I’ll buy and read the next book in the series, but that isn’t because the story wasn’t good. It was a bit different from what I usually like to read. I would still recommend this book to read.
I will leave it there for now.
Enjoy your week ahead, until next week.
