A little bit of beauty amongst all the rubble of the new houses going up.
I haven’t been around for a while and that was a mistake. Every time I take a break WP changes and it takes me ages to figure out how to get into my blog.
Quite a lot has happened in the last few weeks so I will try to catch you up quickly.
First, my Stepdad had a couple of dizzy spells. And I got a call at four o’clock in the morning. He had gashed his arm and it wouldn’t stop bleeding. Thank God I live nearby. Threw on some clothes and grabbed my make-up bag. One has to get one’s priorities right in an emergency.
To cut a long story short we got an ambulance and I followed it to the hospital. Where he was stitched up by a really lovely doctor. I am getting to know that hospital really well. He wanted to know why he was getting the giddy spells. She told him that when you get older(try 91) your brain takes a bit longer to get the message that you have moved. Horrors, I think that is happening to me right now. Nope…it is just the wine.
Anyway, it has been a hectic couple of weeks. Work has been very busy preparing for our annual shutdown. And I have been going around every day to change his dressings and take him to the hospital for follow up visits. And, yesterday, I spent the morning cooking a whole heap of meals for them. I came home completely knackered. I forget I am no longer a spring chicken!!! Tomorrow we go back to the hospital, and, hopefully they will take out the stitches.
On the upside I am now on holiday. But Jasmine doesn’t know that. And she still wakes me at five for her breakfast. Silly damn dog.
My neighbour is a professional baker. Two days ago she dropped these off for me for Xmas. There were six but one is in my tummy. Correction…it is probably sitting on my hips.
Also on the upside, I am now talking to my younger daughter again. I am a happy Mommy.
On the downside I won’t be seeing any of my kids for Xmas. Oh well, it saves on presents. Unless I win the lottery tonight.
If I do I will be flying some bloggers in to visit. I love my blogger friends. You keep me sane.
Mommy and Daddy plover and three babies are alive and well.
