I felt so sorry for Jan!

Goodmorning everybody!

Gosh, this weekend was a hard time for my hubbie!
Friday he had a morning shift, everything allright, even the weather wasn;t too bad. While he was away, I could do a few things around the house.
In the evening we got a telephone call, and it was Heidi on her mobile, telling us she let out her doggie, together with Séverine, but that she had forgotten to take her keys with her, so she couldn;t enter her house! So good we have an extra set here, so she came to us to pick up the keys.  Now I have to go to her, may be today, to pick those up again, for the next time it happens to her!
But Saturday Jan had to work the whole day till about 17.00 am. He had a hard time, because the wind was blowing fiercly!!!
But at about 18.30 he still wasn;t home, so I phoned him on his mobile to ask what was the matter. Oh, poor thing, he was given a rather long list of adresses, and the route wasn't planned too well, so he was riding back and forth and had to search around for several streets. All together he came home at 19.30 am. He was really POOPED out. I felt sooo sorry for him. It always can happen that the given schedule doesn;t work out completely and that you will have to work a bit longer, but this was really a mess. Part caused because he didn;t know the route at all, but certainly also caused by a bad planning and too many clients to visit.
Lucky for him he had a bit of time to recover, because his next shift was Sunday, starting at 18.00 am till 23.00.
So he could sleep well and long, and take it easy in the early afternoon. I was so glad the weather had changed for the better, by the time he had to leave, even the sun was shining a bit, and the wind had calmed down a lot.
And when he home again(at reasonable time LOL) he was much happier about this shift. Glad he has no shift today, well, till now at least. He could do with a day off.
All the news at the moment is about Jan's work, but that's what keeps us busy at the moment.
It was a strange xperience Saturday for me, to know Jan would be away all day long. I have to get used to that too again and arrange my day in a new way. Funny though that it feels diferent. When he still wasn;t working we also could spent almost a whole day "alone", I was out for the shopping, he went for a long walk or bike ride, but somehow it felt still as if we were around. Hard to explain, but it's strange grin!

I had mail from Arlene this weekend with lots of new clusters for you! She could do though with a little prayer from you, because she had some bad news concerning a family member. It will be a difficult time for all of them.
I have some fantastic clusters from her made with the "Precious Time"kit.

I have lots to do today, well, I planned it that way LOL, so will not be rambling much longer. Also have to do things on the computer, uploading lovely work from Arlene, finishing a kit and upload it, if time adding the last kits in the MY Freebies of June, also have a list with music I want to burn on a cd, and if time sorting out some folders too! Don't think I will be able to do all today. But better having a lot in mind, which will keep you busy, than looking around and being board ROFL.
Kit for today is named "As Time Goes By", bit in dark colours but I think you can make some great layouts with it.
Well, have a wonderful day!

I'm sending prayers for Arlene. A little one for Jan too so that his schedules ease up a bit. It will take a while to get used to the new "alone" time. There really is a difference between the alone "together" and the alone "apart". Hope the weather stays nice for Jan's travels. You have a nice day, hugs, Edna B.
