We have a routine, almost like clockwork, and have kept to it for years.
Bedtime is around 9pm, dog has final wee just before, then we take our pills and retire.
Sometimes we read to get dopey ready to turn off the light.
Others, we watch something on Youtube, or blog.
Often Hubby will be on his computer and I’ll fall asleep.
Not so tonight.
Neither of us can settle to sleep.
He is worried about a letter we have received from a collection agency regarding a previous occupant of the property. This house was empty when we viewed it, and we purchased it through the proper channels, via the estate agents and solicitors, from the people who had a mortgage against it. There were no other charges against the house. We do not know this person they mention, never met them and have no forwarding address for them.
I’m worried about my Mum whose health is not very good at the moment and I have been receiving text messages from Sis which are nothing short of scaremongering. I’ve followed them up with calls to the nursing home immediately and been put in the picture. I’ve then relayed the information to Bro and OB.
The member of staff I spoke with today explained everything to me, and has promised to keep me informed (Sis had previously instructed them that if anyone enquired about my Mum, they had to go through her). I have explained that we are at least 7 hours away, but contactable 24/7 on the mobile or by e-mail.
I am anxious about our pending trip, and now we not only have MOH’s health to think about (he has some kind of ‘flu virus and the last one he shared took us the best part of 6 weeks to shift completely as Hubby got it back from me) but also the weather.
I am tired, irritable, angry and frustrated.
At least the dog has settled, though she had a bad night last night so that’s preying on my mind too.
