Mid Life Epiphany?

When I told Ruth that quite a few amazing things had happened to me recently she kindly wrote, "Wow. Mobile phone, German, food, hearing. Are you having some of mid life epiphany?" Maybe an old age epiphany ....

In the last few months I have
  • Discovered I am not going deaf, the ear doctor plucked wax slugs out of my ears.
  • Simultaneously become much more interested in food. I quite often make myself a three course lunch. E.g. this afternoon: avocado, pear in mustard pickle (delicious secret old German recipe), cheese and biscuits.
  • Found German very easy to speak and understand. The border is down, it's so much fun.
  • Got totally relaxed without a mobile phone*.
  • Experienced a creative and inventive surge. I now have six projects cooking.

Could food appreciation and being able to hear be connected? I will ask the ear doctor when I see her in September.

(*) Camilla said.
"I was remembering going to the Isle of Wight festival - sometime in the 1780s [sic]....and spending four days looking for the people I was meant to be meeting. Never happened, but I met lots of lovely new people. Your mobile free life will be full of such pleasures."
Thanks darling!

Casewise Burns

That's the Casewise office in Watford where I used to work all day. I am still a director. It caught fire Monday April 15, nobody was hurt :-)

FD Mike Hodes said, "That will take care of the dilapidation costs." He then told us that Casewise made a good profit in Quarter 1.

MD Alex Wentzo writes: We have already moved into a new office on the same street: 54 Clarendon Rd, Watford, Hertfordshire, WD17 1DU. Our new temporary phone number is: +44 (0)115 966 8111.

Our internal IT team has been working all day to set our internal network up. It would probably take this week to be back as normal. Concerning the UK employees, you will be contacted by your manager today to confirm when you can come back to the office.

On the phone he told me: It's cheaper thatn the old office. Extra profit in Q2!

More in the Watford Observe here.

Glad to hear they're doing well. Maybe we'll get a dividend, once they've claimed on the insurance.

Pestalozzi tournament Sunday 23 June

Pestalozzi tournament to be held here on Sunday 23 June .   Please pass this email on to your wives, ex-wives, children and children's boy/girl friends.  It would be nice to have a Keeling final!  Entry forms on request.

Lol  Mum / Granny


David Camilla Granny and Granpa are going to the Lionboy show (see two posts earlier) at the Unicorn Theatre in London at 2pm on Saturday 13th July. Please come and join us. Tickets are £16 with concessions for the old, the young and students. Seating is not numbered so we'll all be able to sit together. Half the seats are currently sold.

Though the show is billed as a "family" event, it is staged by Complicite and should be dramatic and interesting for adults.

If you can't make this date but want to go it's on for 2 weeks in London; if you can't get to London it's on in various places around the country - Bristol and Oxford being particularly of interest to some.

This is Poppy's big show at the moment - don't miss it!
It's on 11–15 June in Oxford. If anybody else wants to see it here, let me know.
