G’day again to all my blogging buddies, September disapeared in a blur of doctor’s appointments and hospital visits. With no time to do my monthly blog. We were so pleased we had moved to this easy care apartment and we could concentrate on getting Jack well again with no garden or leaky roof maintainence to worry about.
We are a 10 minute tram ride from the new Gold Coast University hospital, that Jack calls “the GC university hospital resort” The facilities are world class and the care from doctors and nurses is the best. Slowly, through October, Jack has made a remarkable recovery. Now we are starting to use the facilities available for us. Jack is going down for a swim, while I sit on life guard duty reading my book.
During October I’ve also been busy rearranging the “art room”. A large wardrobe along one wall has been reassigned as a storage area.
Shelves were installed by Jack and the piles of art gear were brought from the son’s place to be stored in this cupboard. It did my creative soul good to see all our “stuff” easy to see and “get at”
Still a small area left for hanging clothes, as this room also doubles as our guest room with a settee that folds out to a double bed, and we were delighted to have my son and wife, from New Zealand, for a short but happy visit.
At the casino we won $220 on the pokie machines that paid for our lunch…
After all the hectic time I can now, at last, find time to do some art again and catch up with my blogging record. (The settee in the bottom corner of this photo opens out to a very comfortable double bed.)
We also have lorikeets coming to visit us. I find it amazing that they can fly this high. Jack puts out a saucer of water and honey for them.
We also have time to go round to our son’s place to immerse ourselves in his beautiful garden. Lovely to sit in the “zen” corner and reflect on how lucky we are.
So here I am back in the on line blogging world. Ju-lyn, “touring my backyard< and Brian, “Bushboy’s world” host this monthly challenge, which prompts me to keep an ongoing record and keeping up to date with the monthly happenings in other areas of the world. Pop over to see them.
