the weekend

is all but over.  on saturday i have nothing planned for the week but by sunday night my days are full.  tomorrow the plumber is coming to fix a leaky tap in the kitchen.  there's a bucket under it atm and i'll put the water on the garden in the morning.  tuesday is my daughter's birthday so i'll go up there and take her to lunch.  wednesday i've got a doctor's appointment.  i think i'm free thursday.  :)  friday the girls are coming over to help with some stuff in the garden.  after that my week next week is free but i'm sure that that will change soon.  i should go and do the dishes and go upstairs.  i'm in the middle of sorting out a couple of drawers in my bedroom.  i'd best finish it before i have a shower and go to bed.  i did quite a few loads of washing today.  the weather was perfect and i think it's going to continue for a week or so.  have a great week wherever you are :)

double denim

i am making a fashion faux pas today me thinks.  i'm wearing my denim jacket over my jeans.  i know or care little about fashion so i'm not sure.  it could be back in for all i know.  i'm going to my favourite restaurant with Maz and Jean today.  and ...  they have lunch specials wednesday - friday.  and .... they are renovating so are currently closed on mondays.
my daughter is not out of the woods yet.  things are still not good.  i'll go up there again tomorrow.  i was at the hospital with her sunday night and the police station again on monday.  i slept up there when i took anthony home.  i will make up a little overnight bag and keep it in the car for the moment as i was totally unprepared and didn't even have a toothbrush.  yes, the horror of my first world problems.
i took my elderly neighbour to the doctor yesterday.  she was feeling a bit wobly so i thought it best for her not to drive.  she has had words with her friend and was upset about that too.  i think she has early dementia which is sad.  she's such a lovely lady and loves her garden although it's getting to be a bit much for her of late.
so that's all for the moment.  i have nothing exciting to tell.  enjoy your day wherever you are.

fathers and chrome

happy father's day to all of the dads.  I have been busy with my daughter but I think (I hope) things are settling down slightly so that's good.  Ants enjoyed his party and the baby is over his infection.  cookie is back at school and her op next month has been scheduled.  i'm going up to the cemetery this afternoon.  I spent the day yesterday with maz and we had a nice visit. she is also waiting for a date for an operation.  chrome refuses to open on my computer and even when I delete it and reinstall it is still a no show.  pity coz I like chrome.  I will refresh the computer today and probably forget to save something before I do so.  it's very wet and windy here today which is a shame as I have lots of washing to do.  I have a meeting tomorrow night at the genealogical society or dead relies office  as my son likes to call it.  I can't get over how many people have had or still have the dreaded flu.  my son is not quite over it and two of my neighbours have it.  my friend shauna is luckily over it although annie got it too.  they are both feeling better now thank goodness.  oh well, this isn't getting anything done so I suppose I should get on with it.  enjoy your day wherever you are.  a few random snaps of bali because my holiday has come and gone so quickly.  it seems like ages ago that I got back.
