well I thought It was high time I wrote again ,last weekend was my weekend off and I caught up with lots off people .On friday night Gavin rang from Port Wakefield to say he was on his way home and that Roy was coming over,this was a lovely surprise as he moved to Karratha 9 months ago to join his wife Helen who had gone 3 months earlier to give it a try,Hellen and I worked together at the nursing home and then Roy started to work with Gavin and as we all got on well with each other we had a tendency to have impromptu spare of the moment get together for tea ,bar b q ,afternoon coffee etc we always had a good time.Anyway it was great to catch up and hang out although by 11pm I decided that id had enough for the day and went to bed.

On saturday Karen and Benny came over and stayed the night so we watched DVDs had a hamburger at our favorite place in Moonta Bay then went home fore another DVD before bed I love hanging out with my girls Karen And I get together and do some Quilting and look at each others books /magazines and just fantisise about all the things we want to try one day weall decided to go to bed after the movie,

I woke up on sunday morning early and thought I could hear someone walking around so I got up and found Karen in the garden It was so much like old times That I decided to make pankakes for breakfast one of our familly favorits after which we went for a long walk trough Kadina.something we havent done much since Karen moved,that is karen still goes for regular walks Im just not verry inclined to do so on my own so have become quite lassy sinse seh moved.

catching up with old friends

After reading karen's Blog I'm reminded of how lucky I am. Thanks to Karen I had a lovely weekend recently because she got back in contact with Miff.

She was a part of our life for quite some time, almost like an other daughter. Then she moved away and we lost track of her, although the girls sometimes caught up with some news. I was pleasantly surprised when Karen said she was coming to see her and would I like to join them for lunch, which I did, after only 4 hrs sleep after my nightshift.

I did some shoping for lunch and headed over, a little tired but rather excited. Karen and I stood at the backdoor and waited to see her arrive although we had no idea what sort of car she was driving and we had to ring her to fix up some wrong directions but at last she arrived and we had a lovely walk around Karen's home town with Gavin, Karen, Miff and myself.

Afterwards Gav and I headed home so I could cook spaghetti as Miff, Karen, Kylie and Sarah were coming over for tea and a a sleepover. It was just like old times unfortunately Anneke wasn't with us, we all missed having her there but she had to work that day.

Last weekend I headed for Adelaide as Kaori and her boys were over from Japan and they were having a farewell BBQ. Gav and I caught up with anneke on Saturday in Glenelg. We had coffee/gelati at a coffee shop, did some shopping and then Gav and I had a ride on the ferris wheel which was rather fun. Things sure look different from that height!

I caught up with most of my family at the bBQ on Saturday night, then headed home on Sunday. I was meant to do lots of things when I got home but felt so tired that I went to bed and read a book and had an early night.
