Well, I had such a lovely time with my mum and aunt, but the two of them could outwalk, outlast, outplay me. We ate out, we ate in, we had High Tea for lunch, we shopped and we went to the Harvest market. We talked and had cups of tea. We found some red and white silk which I can hem and make into a scarf for my mum. Red is not 'in' this year right now.
I have no pictures, though I did take up the sleeves on my mum's tops.
I have since been doing quite a lot of sleeping, walking The Labradors, and sleeping. I did go out for tea with MrsMauritius and Bella'sMum. After twenty-four years we still catch up semi-regularly and chat as if we were teaching together at school only yesterday.
Peri has been for her pro-op check up at the vet. We saw Dr Marion who had a good look at both her lumps. Peri is going to hospital next Tuesday and I have made sure I have no appointments so that I can stay home and she doesn't have to wear a bucket/cone on her head. Peri was very excited to be at the vet and she met another Labrador called Abby.
Poor Lorelai Gilmore was left home alone, locked inside so her piteous howling didn't disturb the neighbours. I left her with a carrot and a treat, but she pouted the whole time we were away and would only eat them when we came home. She has her unhappy ears on.
Our newest Leukaemia Support Group nurse has left to have a baby and so I sewed some bibs for her. It's a nice easy pattern and they are reversible. I even had success with the hammer on snaps the first time. We have our Lovely Nurse back again. She has a beautiful Labrador called Charlie.
There has been so much rain in the last week, that there was a flood at the bottom of the hill. There's a video here. We've had 90mm, almost 4 inches, in the last week. Lots of thunder and lightning storms and flood warnings. The dam is overflowing right to the top curvy part.
I am so spoiled and so lucky: some of my friends, together, bought me an iPad. When MrsDrWho gave it to me, I cried and she cried. My friends and family spoil me, I am very lucky to be loved so much. I have an ABC app so I can listen to the usual radio programmes when the cricket and football are on. And I ask Siri about the weather quite often. I think I need a sewing organisation app and a knitting app too, to help count rows and organise patterns. Peri and Gilly are not so sure it is a good thing, as I pay attention to the iPad to their detriment they feel.
Meanwhile I am eye-sad as I trod on my inside glasses. I knocked them off the ironing board one evening and they are camouflaged on the dark floor boards. While I was fending off Labradors I managed to tread right on my glasses, scratch the lenses and break off both the arms. Good thing I was thinking of buying a new pair. I have stuck them together with sticky tape to be going on with. Oh dear.
MrsDrWho says there should be at least a four hour gap between waking up from a nap and going to sleep at night. The Labradors woke me up at 5-30pm, so it's just about the perfect time to go to sleep now. maybe a nice cup of Sleep Tight tea and a hotwater bottle, oh and a treat for Peri and Gilly.
