Letting Go Of It

"Anger resolves nothing it only puts up your blood pressure." Catherine Pulsifer 

Welcome to a relaxing Thursday...
Tea in bed... 
 Then breakfast...↓
 Dressed, and off to work I go...↓
 A quick break for coffee...
I was getting disturbing text messages from my hubby and son,while they were visiting my dad.
My prodigal brother was kicking off at my hubby, on why I haven't spoke to him for 2 and half years.
Swearing and shouting at him while the doctor turned up to see my dad.
I have my reasons not to speak to my brother.
I remembered a certain quote from 
 Agatha Christle's Murder on the Orient Express film (2017):
"As we established… there are no laws against my silence." - Mary Debenham. 
My brother wanted to take my hubby outside to let his fists do his talking.
My hubby just ignored him and left with our children.
I came back from work to hear about what happened.
Had some nice things arrive in the post... 
 After lunch, it was movie time:
 We watched the rest of..↓
 Judge Rinder's Christmas Kid's Court↓
 We had a late tea.
Quick look at today's Birthdays.

Mick Jones; English guitarist with the band Foreigner (I Want to Know What Love is) is 74 years old.
