I managed to schedule two posts yesterday and so now I have to write one for today.
A bit of family news.
I am having a bet with R. As Mother is no longer living at her home, she seems to have an adequate supply of money to spend, and that is what she does and has done for her whole life, spend. She bought three dresses two weeks ago. Last Thursday was too hot for her and R to go out but this Thursday we are sure she will return one, two or all three dresses to Target. They all looked quite nice. It is way too time consuming for her to try them on in the store, so now she takes them home to try them on and then returns what she doesn't like or doesn't fit. But she has always been a returner of clothes, even if she has tried them on in store. I bet she will return one, R bets at least two. She wanted some pants of some kind. She has never worn anything but dresses and skirts. But, in spite of me pointing out to her that every second woman in the street over 50 is wearing black pants, she doesn't like black. Stalemate on that one.
As I mention a few posts ago Sister was in the north of the state in Bright and swam in the local pool. A day or two later she swam in the Myrtleford pool, and a lifeguard approached her and asked if he had seen her at Bright. She was a activist among others who saved the local swimming pool where she grew up, and instead of closing the pool, the council spent money and improved the facilities. Her daughter Little Jo grew up swimming at Nanny's pool when visiting, just like Sister did when she was young. Her aim is to swim in every public swimming pool in the state and she has ticked off many already.
Two days of work to go for me before I begin leave, week 1 of 33 weeks. I will try to get a post about it written for Saturday. I expect R is dreading me being home so much but more on that later.
