The week that was

(two weeks now) Allow me to make it into a long week. Friday last was the funeral of our friend. We went back to his partner's now home for drinks and cake. We dropped two friends off after we left, doubling our journey time home. Saturday I worked and R did shopping. Sunday we went into town to buy presents for our 1 year old nieces.  Monday morning R did his volunteer work and I went into town for some reason. Tuesday we went to Sydney. Wednesday we came home.

Thursday was Mother Day and I went along, a big mistake. I am so in the way when it a Thursday Mother Day for R. Loud words were exchanged on the car trip home.

Friday, doctor's appointment for R. Some Prahran shopping, and then dinner with Brighton Antique Dealer, not as simple as that sounds and worth a post on its own.

Saturday, basic shopping in South Melbourne and then to the twin's 1st birthday party on the Mornington Peninsula. Brought Little Jo back home with us from the party and we had pasta for dinner. The next day, Sunday, we took her to see Wonderland at Fed Square and late afternoon delivered her to So Cross Station to meet up with her Bone Doctor Mum to catch the Geelong train home. Little Jo only our desktop pc to make some biscuits with R.

A last minute invitation had us meet up with with friends at The Dick on Sunday night for dinner, our late friend's partner and his about to depart from Australia brothers, Brighton Antique Dealer and our Hair Dresser friend.

Monday a medical appointment for R and he is not diabetic. Tuesday we caught a train and lunched in Clayton after R had a tooth extracted, fortunately a dry socket, so no blood on his pillow.

Today, Wednesday the trams will return to St Kilda Road and we will go into town but before that, it is well overdue house cleaning. The next day is R's Mother Day, and be rest assured, I won't be going.

Friday nothing much but a medical appointment for R.

Saturday we fly to Launceston with our Hair Dresser Friend to see our Dyke Friend and Dog Jack. We will stay for two nights and return on Monday. I think I have enough blog posts cooked earlier.

Next week is looking peaceful, aside from R's Mother Day on Thursday that R is saying I should go along for and one medical appointment for R on Friday and one for me the same day to seek some sound financial advice to see if I can give up work and continue to live in a manner as have been accustomed to.

  1. Two very busy weeks Andrew. Enjoy your weekend trip to Tasmania.
    Hopefully you'll be able to retire early, that would be my dream, but with only 11 years in Australia and not much super we both have to work until we're 68 I imagine, if not longer...

  2. Surely your good looks and beatific smile has people tossing loot at your feet and cancelling your need to work?!
    Have fun in Tassie!

    1. Thanks Jayne. I don't mind flattery for my true talents, but you are otherwise off the mark.

  3. Boy! Your life is far more active than mine is...by a million times!

    Mine once was filled with activity...long days and nights...but no longer. Now having to go out once, sometimes twice a week is more than enough for me. I am a true embodiment of a "homebody". :)

    1. Lee, I am very much and early to bed, early to rise person. Early to rise is when I get things done, while R is fast asleep. This month has nearly killed R with business, but it is so hard to say no when you in the future there will be alone and lonely days.
