Is this really a holiday???
As usual it was good to chat about old times, our families and things in general but I was most distressed about her health, as she had pre-warned me that I would be, she is very frail and her mobility is very restricted, to the degree that we discussed a move into a nursing home style of living, while Merle is OK with the general idea of this she is also painfully aware of the wrench it will be to leave her home and her surroundings that she is both used to and loves... this is by no means a positive course at this stage but in lots of ways I would feel more comfortable if I was leaving her in those conditions when I leave.
I am currently at the seaside town of Ocean Grove visiting with my middle son and his family which is great after the feelings of frustration at Merles, tomorrow I fly to Adelaide (500miles away) to co-drive favourite daughter Vicki back to Geelong where she is having a new house built, its a varied life this being a parent!!!!
So far the camera has not been out of its bag so no photos to go with this short post, I'll try to do better next time with that.
