year of friendly emails 3a

Hello J.

Have just tried the new mobile phone number (***** ******?) but nothing asked me for a message so couldn't leave one.   It just rang for quite a wuile and then stopped.  Perhaps you are already fast asleep after a hard day!

Very interested to hear about the interview and I think you made a wise decision to start in a trainee position.   You can alwayswork up to something supervisory when you have more experience with that particular employer.  Hope all goes well with the housesitting and all other departments of your life.

We made the church look very "Harvesty" on Saturday and it was a good service with an especially good sermon from JM.

We have had a swarm of tree-surgeons here today.   The walnut tree has had its hair t rimmed quite severely; one apple tree practically felled and the other one severely pruned.   All needed doing and has generally opened up the garden.   Catherine and the children return tomorrow (Tuesday) having put Iain on his plane for Oz tonight.   We hope to go to Longleat one day this week.   M. goes away on Saturday and I shall probably be in London Sunday-Wednesday with all the grandchildren (D & R on half-term next week).  C and children go back to Oz on Wednesday evening of next week.

Think that'a about all my news.   Will have another go at the phone number in a day or so.

Love - S.

Hi J.

Yes all is well here thank you. we have just had 3 days in East Anglia - Norfolk Broads and Suffolk Coast which was lovely.

Glad all is going well with you. Have you found a new place to live yet or are you still housesitting?

Love AnR

Dear J.

Tried the mobile again last night (Sat) but the Voicemail doesnt like me!  Just the same as last time - rang for quite while and then just stopped.   So here I am in print again.

Thanks for news sent on the 15th - hope the ChocolateFest didn't have you on the sick list for too long!!  We were out on Wednesday evening.   Explorer  John Pilkington gave a very interesting talk with slides about a trek he did across the Sahara to the salt mines.  On Thursday Catherine and I took the children to Longleat.  Lost both windscreen squirters off the hired car to the monkeys, but luckily we got replacements from the Ford dealer at Winnall that evening so that she could return the car complete the following day.   Longleat highlight this time was a family of four lion cubs - really gorgeous.

My sister's twin grandsons arrived on Friday - great excitement all round the family.  They were just under 6 lbs each, Thomas and Harry.  All going well so far but I think they will be in hospital for several more days yet.   That evening we went to the Show Dinner and then M. left for his trip to Turkey at 4 o'clock the following morning.  I spent most of yesterday washing, ironing and collecting together things which the children had left behind!

They are in London now until they leave for Oz on Wednesday evening.  I am going up there tomorrrow (Monday) to have the last couple of days with them all.

Thats about all my news for now.

Love - S.

Dear J.

What a lovely email!   Congratulations on getting the job - it sounds a wonderful opportunity.  It is SO good to hear you sounding so happy.

I am so sorry I had to get off the phone quickly the other night.   M. did phone and all is well with him.  He comes home tomorrow evening.   I also heard very late on Thursday evening that Catherine and the children were safely home.

Hope the sailing went well today.   Enjoy your holiday between jobs.   All the very best to you J.

Love - S.

Hi S.,
I will try to phone later.
It's lovely weather here. We are off sailing shortly.
I have had a busy and wonderful weekend. I have landed the job I wanted.
I will be trained for a management job, I am still astonished by the salary.
I am looking forward to starting on 12th of November, I finish my current job on thursday, it will be sad to leave as I have been very happy, so I will have a rest and holiday between jobs. My mum and dad have kidnapped me for a while as well, so I am a lucky girl!
We were up till 00:30 this morning, and my interview was at 10am, so I hope to get a fairly early night in preparation for another busy day tomorrow, but I would like to ring and say hi later.

God bless,

J. x

I have landed that wonderful job, and will have a holiday before I launch into it. It will be sad to leave my current position, but I must go forward.
It is a training position that will lead to management, it comes with a good salary, is salary in salad?

Dear J.,
Darcy sui transformed – well almost! My wonderful dog trainer Patsy did a home visit and sorted out the owner – it never is the dog’s fault. Darcy was high on adrenalin, hyperactive and overanxious (aren’t we all!). He is rapidly becoming a calmer dog, and his lovely personality is coming through.

 I hope all is well with you, I have pulled a muscle in my back, but otherwise all is fine here.

Dear J.,
Many thanks for the cheque which arrived yesterday, well done!
I am sorry your car is ill, I hope the garage have been able to put it right. I will pass the number on to Ann and S., is there anyone else you want to have it?

 Darcy is making some progress, although he still seems determined to eat me! Patsy my dog trainer is coming for a home visit on Friday,  I think he might need to go to boarding school for her 3 week training course.

 We look forward to seeing you at Christmas, and hope all is still going well on Jersey, at least you might have better weather than us, it is dull and drizzling here today.

Lots of love and pR.ers,

I have sent you the cheque, but it may well be delayed by strike backlog, please let me know when you get it, so peace of mind.
I am now contactable on ***** *******, this is a Jersey Airtel mobile, so not sure of cost yet, but I can be quickly contacted in an emergency, and can phone the UK cheaply. please pass the number on to the scooby gang if you like.

Dear J.,

 I am glad you got home OK, and that you are enjoying the rest of your holiday. I expect you are about to start your new job now, I’ll be thinking of you and pR.ing for you, although I can’t promise to be pR.ing at the unearthly hour you have to get up in the mornings! Give my love to the Jersey cows, I have such fond memories of my own Anna – so gentle and with the longest dark eyelashes you have ever seen!

We loved having you to stay, you are welcome anytime.
Darcy has done his back in again, chasing a springer spaniel called Bonsai. I had to lift him out of the car when we got home, he has had half a paracetomol and we are off to the vet in 10 minutes. I think he is going to be an expensive dog, what a good job he has found a home with me.

 See you soon,

 Love,

 JM

Hi,
I am home safely. I got some snooze on the boat, a quiet corner with a blanket.
Thank you for having me to stay, it was delightful.
That email I was struggling with got deleted because I was offline, never mind, I should have asked before using your computer so serves me right, I was a bit frazzled but I rewrote it ok.
Here I am enjoying my holiday still, sightseeing, relaxing, haircut, dentist, ironing, helping mum and dad, the tides are preventing sailing, much to my frustration, but tomorrow is surfing after prayers.
The sadness is settling down, be ok, they have indoor bowls here.
It was a lovely time with you lot, so nice to spend time with you.

Dear J.

Thanks for all your news.   Been thinking about you in the new job this week and pleased to hear that things were OK up to Day 3.  Hope all is continuing well.   I think it takes a few weeks to get really settled into any new job.

Yes. we have had some really heavy frost this week - one morning it looked almost like snow!
Today is "warmer".   We have Daniel and Rebecca here this weekend.   So far the programme has been homework, teaching Rebecca to knit, sweeping up leaves with Grandpa etc etc.  We plan a walk on Winnall Moors this afternoon and this evening we are going to see The Pajama Game at the Theatre Royal.

I can well see that you have a big decision to make about Christmas - but only you can make it!   Of course we will be pleased to see you here on Christmas Eve, if Christmas at the Rectory wins, but you mustn't let that influence you decision.   A family Christmas in Jersey also sounds tempting.   (I'm sure there will be plenty to eat wherever you decide to be!!)

Had a big public meeting in the Hall on Thursday about the proposed closure of the Post Office.   187 people there - many of whom spoke very well in defence of our P>O> and against the chaos at Weeke.  Two gentlemen form the GPO on the platform - with Clive who chaired the meeting brilliantly.    I doubt it will make any difference to the decision form on high - but at least we have tried.

Take care.

Love - S.

Dear J.,
Of course you can have a Hampshire calendar for Christmas.

 Darcy has displaysia in both hips (is that how you spell it), he also has retained testicles, I think his back end must have been made last thing on a Friday afternoon when the parts were running out!

We are being upbeat, he has anti inflammatory pills, and I am giving him fish oil supplements, but I cannot stop him having fun and running and jumping, he gets cross if I do.

After the initial disappointment, I feel that he was meant for me, another home may not have loved him so much.

Love,

 JM

Dear J.,

I am so sorry, have you been made redundant from the old job or the new one? Surley it cannot be the new one as they have only just appointed you and wouldn’t be giving you a good payout.

I am also sorry that you are not well, I know the feeling at the moment and can truly empathise – especially if you have one of these wretched viruses that seem to be afflicting us all at the moment.

Are there many jobs available over there?

Take care, I am thinking of you and praying for you.

Hi J.,

It was lovely to hear from you. It does sound like you’ve been on a bit of a roller coaster emotionally! Having your friendship with Jill and George end would be a very big change.

There have been some very nasty viruses around leaving people feeling down and very tired. It’s a shame you got one – you didn’t need that!

 You asked am I able to advise you still. I guess the answer is not formally as I am not your counsellor any more.

But we have known each other for a long while now and informally ( = not as part of a counselling relationship) you are welcome to any thoughts I have that may be useful.

 I guess that “feeling strange and out of control” is not surprising: you haven’t been well, you have had some big life changes, and I think that your adoptive dad guessing some of your past would feel a big shock, and that him talking to the people who employed you would feel very scary: you have always felt scared of other people intervening – rightly so, as so many of them in the past made decisions which damaged you. I think it might be important for you to let your adoptive dad know that. Explain to him how important it is for you to feel in control of your life so as to feel safe. Explain that he needs to check with you each time before he does something, however helpful he thinks it might be – like you and I have always done. Then you can feel safe.

 So many people walked all over your feelings, didn’t respect you and hurt you. Now, in all your relationships, you need to feel and see that respect for you and your right to make the decisions in your life. Your right to decide who is given any information about you (because giving information is giving a part of you - and too many people in the past just took parts of you without you having chosen for that to happen).

 I’m pretty sure that anything that anyone does, that you don’t know about first, is going to take you to a very wobbly place where you do feel “strange and out of control” and as tho your personality is confused: That’s a normal response for someone who has been hurt the way you have.  In the past people did awful things without your consent. it’s ok and normal for you to need to know and agree to what anyone now wants to do. However much what they want to do is logically helpful and caring.

 It’s not surprising you feel anxious and unsettled... I think it will settle as you settle into your new job, begin to feel better from the virus and talk things through with your adoptive dad so he can understand what you need to feel safe. Anyone who loves you will be happy to hear that and respect it. Sometimes people just so much want to help that they forget to stop and join up how the way they are helping will feel like to the other person. Once they understand they can see how important it is.

 Hope Nicky is enjoying himself and that he doesn’t stay away too long… His cheekiness lightens things up for you!
I reckon jelly beans definitely have a therapeutic effect... because they tell you you’re cared for…

 Best wishes,

 LD

Hi LD,
I hope that you are ok.
I do want to stay in touch.
Not just because I value your advice.
Are you able to advise me still?
I am still happy in Jersey.
I have just lost a new job, got a good payout and found another job.
I have also had a bad virus that has left me tired, weak and on antibiotics.
My life has been through some huge changes.
My friendship with Jill and George ended.
My adoptive dad guessed some of my past and wants me to talk about it, that was a huge shock.
He also talked to the people who employed me, who I've just left, that was also a shock, he means well, but I am very anxious and unsettled at the moment.
Any advice on keeping calm? Nicky has taken himself off to a health farm in France, (only 14 miles away!).
I feel very strange and out of control, as if I have a personality disorder or something. My mum got me jelly beans, do you think that will cure me?

Love,

J.

Dear J.,

Many thanks for the pics they are delightful, I will try to pass them on as well.  I see Darcy has a rival in taking the place apart – its called ‘having fun’ –now I understand!  He got my purse last night, ate the leather and poohed bright blue this morning, at leats he had the decency not to chew the notes, or my switch card, but the ate part of the Homebase card, and ending up with all the cash in his bed. Still he is lovely, and gorgeous and handsome and clever…..

I Hope you feel better soon.

Hello J.

Still no luck with your phone.   Don't know where the last week has gone.   I hop that by now you are feeling much better and the antibiotics have done their work successfully.   It is good to know that you have such supportive friends who look after you.

We had a very happy couple of days with Lorna in Bath.  Went to the theatre to see a Michael Frayn farce "Donkey's Years" which was hilarious.

With no heating in the church last Sunday am, we duly celebrated St. C.with a B enefice Service in the evening - several electric heaters having been on for several hours beforehand.    Partway through the service, just as JM said something like "The Feast of Christ the King and our Patronal Festival - what an excellent day", there was a bang the all the lights went out!!  All heaters were disconnected and lights came on again.

* * * * * * *
 During that gap I have learned that our email connection has been switched off BEFORE the relevant modem and loading CD have been received here to complete the switch over to a new provider.   SO heaven knows when (or even IF) this will be sent.    Both M. and I have been speaking to a gentleman, probably in Bangalore, for some time and we are both very cross!!

I will now consign this to the Outbox and maybe try the phone again sometime soon.   Meanwhile, I DO hope that you are really better now.    Love - S.

Hello again,

Glad to know that you are slowly making progress and hope the beastly pain will soon be a thing of the past.  Also pleased to hear that you have some gardening work - hope it doesnt hurt too much - that there is another possible interview later.

The new modem and loading CD arrived Sat. and we spent a long time getting all that sorted - but we did it!   But it needed a couple of long sessions on the phone with Elizabeth for her to discover what needed changing in order to be able to send emails as well as recieve them.  She finally cracked it and (at the time of writing) emails are flowing both ways.  Long may this continue!

Went to Guildford this morning to meet Victoria's 6-week old twins.  Gorgeous!  Just back from playing silly games at Flowerdown and must get on with mulling wine and making sandwiches for WI Christmas meeting this evening.

Take care,
Love - S.

The virus is fading away nicely but it triggered a fairly bad bout of fibromyalgia which is always a delight to suffer horribly from, never mind, I have been back at work today, I have a slightly complicated but very nice (so far) gardening job, I also have an interview for a job that I enquired about a while ago but their email wasn't working(!).

The plan is that I will come over on Friday night, but will have to come back to Jersey on Saturday 22nd, as that is the last fast ferry back before christmas, and if that doesnt sail due to the weather, the last slow boat is on the 23rd.

That sounds fine to me, you are welcome to use us as your base, hopefully the catering will be fairly elastic to accommodate your movements!

 Yes, the Christingles are over, except for the school one next Tuesday, but L. and C.carol services are on 16th AND S.’s is on 23rd, all at 6.00pm, S.’s is of course followed by Eve of Eve at L..

 I hope the dental appt went OK!

 Love,

 JM

Hi,
A plan is forming! What I hope to do now is come over next weekend, and stay for the week, until 23rd or 24th, this is very much relying on the ferries, as they are on the winter timetable and also not running at the moment due to the weather. Anne emailed me about ***** sunday, and Red Lodge is going ahead as normal on 24th. It was a tough decision, but I have to spend christmas day with my family here in Jersey.
I have continued to work through the weather as I have loads of strimming to do, but the strimmer occasionally takes off in the wind and I end up on Sark!
When I come over, the Romsey lot may want me for a night, and I hope to go and see **** and family as well.
O. has to be out of bounds as it is not safe, but I will go to see J. and hope that I am invisible. It will be lovely to Join in the carols and things, but have I missed the christingles and c/L. carols or am I not looking?
I have a lovely dental appointment tomorrow, the weather is going to be aweful and we are delivering christmas service leaflets for St. A’s.

God bless,

J. x

Yes, we had alovely Christmas with E. and family.   Lots of present opening and much eating and drinking.  On Boxing day we, and lots of their friends, walked in Kew Gardens and then had a mid-afternoon lunch at some friends' house.   That evening we took our lot the Cinderella at Richmond - great fun.   On Thursday M. and I took a light lunch to the aged Aunt who lives in Wembley and then returned home to L..   Since then we have been "pottering" - beginning various projects around the house; HedgeEnd ******  on Friday morning which was ghastly; a very nice Benefice service at S. yesterday - the last service as a 3-parish benefice.

Tonight we shall be dining at Glendale.   All the very best of good wishes for 2008 J. to you and your Jersey family.

HAPPY NEW  YEAR !!!!!!!

Love - S.
