You could say that this was a week that largely didn’t turn out as originally planned.
So what happened?
drop David off
help set up for Vic Quilters’ Spring Gathering which our local group was hosting.
Okay yes, that went ahead more or less as planned, except that there were dozens of chairs missing from the hall [ or in use next door in the Adult Day Program, which amounted to the same thing, because they couldn’t be accessed till later ] so we puddled around and went home early.
attend Spring Gathering wake up with migraine / nausea. Spend day on couch with the aid of pharmaceuticals.
Sunday: gardening, weeding, block clearing … when not face down on couch. There is a vague memory of some spinning in there too. Or maybe that was Friday.
dance class house cleaning / tidying in case visiting rellies come for afternoon tea.
They didn’t. Morning tea Tuesday instead.
Respite meeting Bake gluten-free pumpkin scones. Morning tea with rellies. Pumpkin scones approved.
Drive Nadie & Chris down to Tullamarine to catch flight to Townsville Drive Nadie and Chris to the train station to catch train and bus to Airport.
Out to dinner with rellies. Local Thai restaurant. Best kept secret in Central Victoria. Quoth my foodie Sydneysider cousin Lee: ” This is GOOD Thai … They would KILL for this in Sydney”
yes they probably would.
Knitting group in the morning
Quilting group in the afternoon
Peace Choir with Dave late afternoon alternate block clearing, goat wrangling and face-down-on-the-couch
Possibly go to see the White Wedding exhibition in Bendigo with Tara that we didn’t manage last week Goat, weeding, block clearing, collapse-face-down-on-couch
Chat Warblers [choir] after dinner started knitting a Harry Potter Gryffindor scarf.
Apparently not-quite-five-years-old #1 grandson’s besotted with HP, and tears around the house with a windcheater tied round his neck as a cape, a pencilled-in lightning scar, and brandishing a stick. The fat man in the red suit has already put the elves to work on a cape. glasses, proper wand and broomstick.
So now can you guess what I did today?
Hint: it involved weeds … and goats … and also – for brief periods – a book,chair and dog
Somewhere in there this week I also: did Christmas present shopping, a modest amount of Spring Cleaning, read two books and started a third, and crochet some more snowflakes for Christmas decorating.
