Well bloggies … it is back to reality!
We just had the most wonderfully, relaxing few days down the coast … lots of reading, playing card games, watching DVDs, napping & some happy family time! It rained almost the whole time we were away … and although you may think that was annoying … a beach holiday in the rain … it actually was just the perfect weather for relaxing! I am sooooo very thankful we were able to escape for a week … and very thankful to my sis for keeping an eye on mum while we were away. I feel a little refreshed … but do wish we could have had a little longer to recover properly. But … please don’t think I am complaining. I enjoyed every minute of it!
I took away my “sympathy thank yous” to write … and somehow … in all the busy-ness of doing nothing … I forgot to do them! 😀 So … that is on the top of my “to do” list now! And … yes … my “to do” list is growing by the minute! We are so thankful that Stacey & Jono have a place to move into. They finally had 4 offers within 24 hours while they were down staying with us. One of these was the one Stace liked the best … so they were quick to say yes … even though the “proviso” was that they moved in “immediately”.
So … yes … back to reality. We will be helping Stace & Jono move house this week … I have to be available to drive Skye to uni … as she isn’t able to drive yet … and of course … I want to see my mum as much as I can. She is still in hospital (now in Wollongong) having been transferred there to drain yet another infection! She has had such a time of it … with a recovery that should have taken 2 weeks stretching into 5+ weeks now. We are praying that she will soon be home again and back on her feet asap. She has had so many setbacks … and I am sure she has had enough of hospitals! Please continue to pray for her full recovery … and for patience for this process. We do appreciate your prayers.
Well … I am sure you will understand … if I am a little preoccupied over the next week or so. I can only apologise again … and hope you will continue to “hang in” with me! One day … my routine and life will get back to normal!!! Do you think??? I will be back asap with a card. It is mum’s birthday on Thursday … so I need to get my stamps out! I am off now … to take Skye to uni … and stop by Sandy’s zone athletics carnival for a few hours. As long as he still wants me to come and watch … I am keen to be there! He is in high school now … but he still likes me to be there! 😀
A big thank you to all those who so faithfully stopped by while I was away and left me some blog love! You are the BEST!!! Hugs xxaxx
