I'm back after the festive period. Didn't post much - only had the statutory holidays off, so was running around like the proverbial blue-arsed insect......... We got a Wii from Father Christmas so consequently all my tribe and yes, the husband are nursing various Wii inflicted injuries. I understand that Wii shoulder is actually a recognised medical condition these days!
My mum has deserted me for warmer climes (New Zealand) until March and besides leaving me with the emergency contact list, emergency funds (yes, despite being 42, my mother still insists on leaving me a "just in case fund" when we are apart) and instructions on looking after her house, I was also handed her pre-paid tokens for the Daily Telegraph. Now we don't take a national paper in our house, both working and living in the same town, we prefer to have our local paper - how insular does that sound!
So today husband enjoyed perusing their excellent sports coverage, I tackled both the short and cryptic crosswords (I'll tell you how I got on tomorrow!!!) and also glanced through the actual news.
One story on the front page really got me thinking. The headline reads "Cremations to keep mourners warm" and the basics of the story are plans by crematorium near Manchester to use the heat from the cremations to generate power for the boiler. Now my first reaction was bloody hell that's dodgy....... And then I thought I rather liked the idea. I may have my rose tinted spectacles on but I thought that at my cremation (and I DEFINITELY want to be burned) my send off would provide the warmth for my grieving (well I bloody hope so!) loved ones.
Perhaps I have over simplied matters but that was the conclusion I came to.......
