Welcome and come on it to our new house. It may be a mess but I have all the makings for tea, coffee, hot chocolate and a variety of cold drinks. Whatever you desire.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that we moved a fortnight ago next Tuesday. The removalists were great despite us making it incredibly hard for them. We arranged for the carpets in our new place to be shampooed on the morning of the move not realising that the fellows we had hired only had a small truck and were ready to bring the first load around 8.30 am. It was a miserable day although it was only light rain until we finished. Then it bucketted down. This meant the carpet didn’t dry quickly and everything had to be left downstairs. We also made it hard for them with our fish tank which Roger refused to fully empty thinking the lads were young and fit and if he and my brother had moved it up the road then the removalists could move it easily. Not so but they were so good and helpful and kept a smile on their faces all day despite tiring as the day wore on.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that we have had no end of problem with our phone and internet with the move. We didn’t have a phone connection for a few days and internet for a week. When we were finally up and running the rain had led to a very noisy line and it couldn’t be used anyway. Thankfully now that is all fixed. It did mean however that I did little to no posting. With the huge number of boxes to unpack this was probably a good thing. I’ll probably get back to normal in another week as I finally get things organised.
I’d also tell you if we were having coffee that two days after the move I went to the Gold Coast for my 40 year nurses reunion. It was a great break and lovely to catch up with everyone. Three years ago there had been no deaths but now we have two and numerous battling illness. It really brought it home to me how important it is to live in the moment. Not as though each day is your last but just making sure that each moment counts.
Not only was the reunion a lot of fun but we also found an international eatery that I still drool over. I had the Hungarian Langos and it was delicious.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you we went and saw the new David Williamson play The Odd Man Out. It was a relationship tale of a woman and a man with Aspergers. It was very well acted, the dialogue clever, and the situation presented with tenderness, understanding, humour and great drama. For me though it was fairly predictable and presented information that I already knew albeit in an engaging manner.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you Bundy had surgery yesterday and had most of his teeth removed. He came to us as a rescue dog at 8 years old with already rotten teeth. Our new vet was prepared to operate where our old one felt his heart may not take the anaesthetic. He survived and I think he is going to feel much better for it. We are told he will still be able to eat dry dog food but at the moment he is lapping up chicken and mince and thinking he has gone to heaven. I have to admit I was a little worried when last night he became very sleepy and was incontinent, lying in his puddle of piddle. Thankfully he seems to be right back to normal today.
Now it is your turn. How was your week? Has your weather been warmer/colder, wetter/drier. Have you read any good books or seen any good films? Thank you for dropping in for coffee and thank you to Nerd in the Brain for hosting our weekend coffee. Other places to drop in for coffee can be found here. Hope to see you next week.
