He's then up very early in the morning and off he goes again.
And today...a flying visit from someone else...father-in-law. At least this time he actually phoned me on Friday evening to give me some warning. All he said was that he would be here on Sunday. I didn't know if he would be alone, what time he would be arriving, or how long he would be staying. So nothing new there!
Just before Mr A set off this morning he gathered up insecticide and the pump contraption for using same, plus a few other items from the old house and got on his motorbike with them. I asked where he was going with them and he said his father had asked him to drop them down at the land for him. "Is he already there?" I asked. "Maybe or he's on his way" Mr A replied. "How long is he staying? Is he on his own? Do I need to make the bed up? Do I need to cook for him?" I asked. "He's on his own...I don't know any more than that" was the reply. Mr A suggested I phone him myself. Do you know? I'd almost think there was some conspiracy in this family to try to keep me in the dark about everything!
So a bit later I phoned FIL and asked if he would like me to get him some food when he had finished work. "No" was the reply. "I've made your bed up for you" I said. "I'm not staying" he replied "I'm going home tonight". Yippee!!
He came to the house around 6pm, we drank coffee and chatted about the garden. He had a shower and left at 7.30pm.
Some flying visits are disappointing...others are quite the opposite!
PS. Finally after about 4 weeks of my laptop being attached to the modem by USB cable, my brother-in-law found time this evening to take control of my laptop with teamviewer and reconnect me to my wireless network. Thank goodness I ignored the so-called expert at TTNet who insisted I should see an engineer as there must be a problem with my laptop....there isn't! Three cheers for my lovely brother-in-law!
