Grandma and I have been making salads today and I have been cleaning the floors as I will be at work tomorrow and we are having a birthday tea for Grandma tomorrow night ( her birthday is next Tuesday )
DH's dad and stepmum are coming for tea.
We are going to have a BBQ.
DH requested pizza for tea , so we headed to Woolies when he got home to get supplies.
I will only say I'm still buggered.........and that I don't like getting up at 4am.
I was paranoid all night that I wouldn't hear the alarm and didn't sleep well and woke at 3.10am and then just lay there.......I should have just got up.
Guess what greeted me at the door of work this morning ?
Give up ?
A Cane Toad.......yuck !!
It just sat there looking at me with it's beady eyes.........
It moved when I dragged the newspaper stand outside , for which I was .....very grateful !!!!!
I was a naughty daughter and woke Mum up this morning.......I didn't think and I thought it would be 8am back home but Mum was in South Australia at my brothers and they are on the same time zone as us.....oops ! and it was 7.30am.
Mum said that they had to get up and get ready to drive home anyway.
Mum had the added bonus of listening to the rain on the roof all night............I hope it followed them home.
I wished all my BFF's a happy Mothers Day by text and we had some interesting conversations........some involved taking a golf club to work for using on the Cane Toads....lol
DH cooked a very lovely fish and chips dinner and I put together some salad.
It was very , very nice.....!!
We have been enjoying The Voice again tonight........but we will miss tomorrow night because Carlton are playing football.........just one of the few Monday night games thye have scheduled this season.
My darling Jacob gave me a foot massage.......ssssooooo nice !!!
But it wasn't long enough.
I did read some of my book today.
And it was a no sewing day.
This morning DH and I went fishing.
Just 5 minutes down the road is the Elizabeth River and boy is it wide.........
We fished off the jetty.
We lost bait and didn't catch anything.
It is really nicely set up down there with the boat ramps and lights on the jetty for night fishing too.
The train line is on the bridge and the train went passed while we were there......but it wasn't the Ghan.......it was just freight.
It was nice to do some fishing but I would like a chair to sit on next time.........
The veiw from where we were standing with the bridge in the background.
And the view from behind us........Darwin is in that direction.
Zachary and DH went back down there to try their luck before tea..........but , no luck.
We have been saving for a BBQ and today we went to Bunnings and bought one.
I got a little sunburnt while helping DH put it together.....just on my shoulders......you would think I would have learnt by now !
We will try it out tomorrow night.......
..........had a little mishap.
I'm tough-ing it out tonight and if my ankle isn't any better in the morning I will go to the hospital for X-rays.
I haven't had a sprained ankle like this before.
I did it at work on some uneven concrete while checking the temperatures of all the cold stores.
It hurts like hell....!!
I have DH waiting on me and I feel bad.
And I'm not looking forward to going to bed.
DH got me my hexie stuff and I've basted another batch of hexie 's while we have been watching the football.
The photo is of my hexie pile and my foot in the background.......
After Grandma and I got ourselves ready I took her to a shop that sells mobility equipment.
We have picked out and ordered a wheelchair and it should be here next week.
Now we can spend a few hours looking through the big shopping centre and Grandma won't be exhausted.
And a little trip to the supermarket on the way back.
And I had to line up at the post office ( the line was out the door ) and only 2 people working..........Australia Post is the same everywhere.
I got the washing done , dried and put away too.
No sewing today.
I was reading for a little instead.
