OK how's this week been for everyone out there in blogging land and how has our week been?
I have to report that I finally spoke to a 'CLIENT MANAGER' about our kitchen and they have approved a builder's quote and are contacting him to go ahead with the restoration of our poor cupboards. It's just a waiting game until we have someone call who can tell us just how they will undertake the work, taking into consideration that not all the cupboards were damaged. The vinyl and carpet replacement will take place after the cupboards are finished of course.
Yesterday my daughter decided to have her long hair cut off. I was rather pleased she did as she has those awful joint problems still (her knee is fine thought) and short hair will make it so much easier for her to manage. Just one less hassle each day. I have photographs of her when she was younger and had short hair and it suited her so well. I can't wait to see how it looks and I know I will like it. She will probably hate me for showing this photo but this was taken at our place some years back (that's our old cat Soot she's holding) and I think she looked so lovely with her her short like that. She is of course much more slender than she was then but I still love this photo of her.
Today I went and had my lung function tests (fun and games puffing and blowing for nearly an hour) and I will get the results next week when I see my GP. Dr Ken also wants Phil and me to have chest x-rays so we'll have to try and get those done tomorrow. It's great to have a doctor that takes the time to make sure we are as well as two oldies can expect to be.
This afternoon I had a telephone call from my ex-sister-in-law in Canberra. Verna is now 91 and still as bright as a button. We tend to chat for an hour or more as, of course, we've known each other for over 60 years. Although I really enjoy talking to Verna I feel quite tired afterwards so am hoping this post is making some sense. Obviously I don't spend enough time talking so not used to doing so. Verna and her husband Bob (who is 93 next month) moved into a retirement village a year or so back and are really enjoying themselves. Verna has macula degeneration and her eyesight is poorly but she still enjoys her life and she told me they are off next Sunday to spend a week in Bright in Victoria. They go in an organised group from the village where they live.
I can't think of any other 'right' things that have happened in our world this week. There is news that patrol aircraft may have found wreckage that could relate to the disappearance of that Malaysian airliner. Although it may mean that all lives were lost at least family and friends of those passengers will have an answer. It must be dreadful for them just not knowing.
