my granddaughter

was born with serious heart problems.  first op when she was six weeks old.  she saw the specialist yesterday who was pleased with her and she doesn't have to go back for a year unless she has problems.  so all good. she's my little hero and is a brave little girl.  she's 11 now.  it's always a bit of a worry. i also put my tetra in a larger tank with a heater and he seems happy.  went to dinner tonight with work mates.  had a lovely dinner and i was home fairly early. all good.  it will be a shock to the system to return to work after one month away on wednesday.  i'm not looking forward to it.  :(

you should see my bedroom.  the absolute worst part of a holiday is the unpacking when you arrive home.  as bad as i am at packing i'm even worse at unpacking.  my sister does it immediately which i'm convinced is the way to go.  i've lost important papers and sis and i have each other's dvds.  i hate coming home from a holiday.  the weather is a shock to the system.  beautiful weather in bali.  swimming weather.  in adelaide freezing.  at least it's nice to see some rain.  i've been a bit lazy and have just hung around catching up with things.  last night i tried to recreate honey ginger chicken.  i had it a few times at a warung  in bali and it was delish.  mine was ok but just not the same.  today i will clean and sort.  get some washing in.  i thought i had to go back to work next monday but it's actually the 1st june.  that's good.  big work dinner on monday night.  thirty of us are going.  and i just heard that a work mate has retired.  life is change.  enjoy your day peeps
