Weekend re-cap

28 May 2008

Friday afternoon Parps and Betty arrived on the bus.....
They looked just wonderful..... Papa never ceases to amaze me....at 94 he is still so agile... fit and sharp.....I would love to think Id be half as good. Its such a shame his sight is failing... but he just gets on with life... and takes it in his stride.
We easily fell into their routine.... shower and breakfast followed by a walk.... probably should take a leaf out of his book....and start eating and exercising like him.... hes obviously got the recipe right.
We took lots of drives around the region..... showing them a few of the local sights.... stopped to top up the fruit bowl at Aggies fruit stall (Belinda...youll recognise this one)...
Watched Mitch play footy....
...and generally had a great time... we relaxed...watched TV... chatted...and laughed lots ...
I was so sad on Monday afternoon saying goodbye... I felt lost... and wished they could stay longer.... I really hope we can get over to Tassie again in the not to distant future... I miss them.

So....Monday went...and it was back to work.... this working week days...isn't all its cracked up to be....I miss my shift work.... and I miss my night shifts...

Chemo again tomorrow.... this time John is taking me.... 11am appointment....

Ohh...and who do you think Briony is impersonating?

  3. Oh bugger - now that I've seen Yvette's post I forget to tell you who I think.
