I should just invite you over for coffee and a big catch up….. and I could whinge about my fundamentally flawed feet. It was just about this week in 2008 that I started a 5 month stint in a series of casts, crutches and extensive surgery on my left foot. Now I have plantar fasciitis – in both heels! Who thought it was so fantastic to walk everywhere? As I type I have a “boot” on my right foot …. and it’s only on my right foot because apparently you can’t wear a pair of these boots (“not a good idea” said my foot specialist).
By then it will be lunch time…… and I could tell you all about my recent month at home in Australia. Mum turned 80 and we threw her a lovely party with more than 50 guests. Jane did most of the work organizing that and I just swanned in at the last minute to enjoy myself. Well, not quite…. I wore my bloody feet out traipsing around Sydney shops looking for placecards as mum had a seating plan. If she’d told me that before I’d left here I’d have taken some with me as they seem to be a precious rarity in Australia!
My trip was round after round of morning teas, lunches and dinners with family and friends. I must tell you more about it – I certainly have enough photo prompts as I took nearly 800 photos!!
And, over something sweet …… I will tell you how I’m going to be a grandmother for the first time in October! My eldest son & his wife are expecting a boy and I’m busy trying to come up with a snazzy alternative to being called nan, nanna, gran, grandma etc… in my mind those belong to another (earlier) generation.
Okay – I’m back.
