One day, long, long ago, there lived a woman who did not whine, nag, or bitch.
But it was a long time ago, and it was just that one day.
What's going on in my life at present?? in some ways much more than I'd like there to be, my favourite daughter is once again not very well, or rather is still not very well, Vicki is no longer under the threat of brain surgery and many of the symptoms of Cushing's disease have abated but she is still a very ill young lady.
The only good thing to come out of this is that she and Rex have asked for my assistance in getting her to WA (half way across this huge land) for Christmas celebrations with the family, this will be the first Christmas we have all spent together in about 40 years, so that's the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
What else?? well my eyesight has been on the decline again so prior to getting new glasses I went back to my eye surgeon for a checkup, my left eye has healed perfectly after the surgery but there are cataracts on both eyes that may need attention, he has suggested a visit to the optometrist to see if new glasses are needed and if so whether they help my vision, so after Christmas we'll go down that track.
I had the first service done on the i30 a few days ago, it came through with flying colours (as would be expected) so will once again be of for another interstate trip very soon, I'm driving as far as Adelaide SA, about 2000 Kms, then flying to Perth WA with Vicki, Rex will drive over from Wudinna a little later.
South east Queensland has had some good rains during November, putting some much needed water into the reservoirs, the downside of this is that my grass needs to be mowed almost twice a week, this isn't a huge problem as my trusty John Deere makes short work of it, however as I will be away again for about a month I'll have to arrange to have it mown at least a couple of times during my absence.
