Oh What a Surprise.

Well it had to happen, one day of decent weather and what happens ? What is Today "Today"☂ ☁ ☂ ☁ ☂ ☁ ☂ ☁ ☂ ☁ ☂ ☁ ☂
Another very wet day.
My goodness I lead a sad old life, all I seem to do is moan about the weather. so lets try and lighten the mood, so today started of ok. Went down to see my Son Gervase and Daughter -in-law Leanne last night for a couple of hours and got mobbed by all the cat,s, anyway Sawyer decided to curl up on the sofa with me for some fussing.  Got back home about 9.30 and went to bed about 11.00.  I had good nights sleep last night and Jo the carer came about 8.40, so all washed and groomed, breakfast done, sent text to Pauline, and washing up completed so now for a day of rest in front of the TV. 
Introducing Sawyer

I spent the first hour after breakfast on the laptop checking e-mails and Facebook and then watched an episode of "Little house on the prairie" which I recorded yesterday, before watching the "State Opening of Parliment"  and the " Queens Speech" shown live on BBC Television, I do like all the pageantry and ceremony that it entails. 
State opening of parliment.
once that is over it is time to go and get a bit of tidying up done in the bedroom before getting some lunch at 1.00 pm. Today I am having some Crisp bread with Laughing Cow cheese triangles and a banana. That went down very nicely with a nice cup of tea and now it is time to have a go at some family history research for a couple of hours.
I posted on my facebook page today my " Day in History Illustrated Fact"  and today it is the birthdate of "Howard Carter" Archaeologist and Egyptologist who discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun.
Day in History for the 9th May
Well my sister ( Eileen Maspero) saw it and left a comment to say that Howard Carter worked alongside a french Historian and Archaeologist called "Gaston Camille Charles Maspero" and that her Ex Father in law was also had the name "Charles" so I am going to try and see how far I can get tracing her Ex Husbands family tree and see if there is a connection, hopefully I can get it done by Monday if I spend a couple of hours a day on it, at least it should be interesting.
Family History Research

 just spent an hour on research so I am taking a break to get this journal written and posted before going back to the research, Did not realize there are so many "Maspero,s" in this country but I am making progress. it will get easier once I get all the birth and Marriage details located and also trace when they entered the country, the internet really is a blessing for Genealogy  research.
Some People in portsmouth like the Rain Today

So that is about it for today, it is still a very miserable day here so I am now going to get back to the family history until 5.00 and then an evening of TV, so until tomorrow and the visit to the Vampire I will say Adios.

  1. Well I think that Sawyer is just adorable, but I don't like pomp and cermony so you will have to watch that by yourself!
    We are back and forwards between rain and sun, cold and hot here this spring started early but has been so slow, not the usual here either.
