The Best Laid Plans ‘O Mice And Men

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.

    My week didn’t go as planned either. And the migraine thing must be contagious. Mine started Sunday and limped along until this morning when it’s just there on the horizon and will hopefully leave me alone today.

    I have great industrious plans for the weekend but I’m not holding my breath.

      I have absolutely NO industrious plans for this weekend … the heavens opened late yesterday, and today so far is just greyish and a bit grim. A good day for going not much of anything. Let’s see if I can stick to that.

    I’m sorry to hear that you had a migraine and glad to know that it didn’t last too long. It seems you had a productive week on the block even if you missed many of the other items on your list.

    • catsmum says:

      and what do you want to bet Lynne that, productivity notwithstanding, when Nadie & Chris get back from Qld that they won’t be able to see any difference ? LOL
