back in the jug agane - Quizzical Looks

09:26 pm - back in the jug agane
*backdated, and with apologies to n. molesworth*
So, today saw me go back to work after three weeks - the longest I've had off since I started here (and only feels like a lifetime longer). *streeeeetch* Yeah, getting back into the swing of things is taking a while...
Yesterday I went to the cemetery with Mum to pick up Dad's ashes, and to have a look in on some of the family - nice day for a walk, which was good since Veronica's grave is almost at the other end of the cemetery from the gates. The permanent headstone isn't up yet, but the grave is right under a huge tree. Also had a walk along to see some of the plaque options for Dad, and check out one of the walls that's having relocated headstones incorporated into it - hopefully the headstone of my great-great-grandparents is in good enough condition to be integrated into one of these walls (their section was just renewed in the last few months) - encouragingly there was an identical headstone in the wall we saw in an adjacent section.
Afterwards I went to put that Borders voucher I won a couple of months ago to work with some special ordering and a couple of things for Mum to use with the DVD player I helped set up for her the day before (I wonder if anyone here has heard of a series called Sharpe, hmmm? *isn't looking towards Adelaide at all, nope ;)*); when it was time to go our separate ways I almost forgot to hand Dad over - I'm just used to carrying stuff, I didn't really notice the weight. Thankfully Mum listened and caught a taxi back home - I didn't want her waiting around forever for the comparitively infrequent buses to her place at a deserted train station, thankyew.
Anyway, I escaped the madness that is lunchtime in the city and got home to find I'd had a little help in the DVD stakes too..
Now I need to wait for either UK or US Amazon to get round to having more Ghostbusters DVDs.....
