I haven't taken any photos of the new look yet, but here is one taken when the house was last on the market... and it looks much the same, minus all the annual flowers!!!
My task for today:
Neo-conduit has also helped me this week. We agreed on a trade; I will buy the engine oil for her car in return for her washing and vacuuming my car, which I then waxed and buffed, so I now feel like I am driving around in a new car...thank you so much :) We celebrated our efforts with a girls afternoon of fun, manicures and movies...
The other night, as girls do, we compared handbag contents, triggered by a reference by my partner to the size of the backpack / bucket handbags we both lug round. In terms of volume I won... in terms of content, she took the trophy. She had similar phone, makeup, keys contents, but her medications made mine look inadequate... and I don't think I have ever felt the urge to carry a thermometer, catheter and rubber gloves! The joys of catheterizable stomas! The look on my partners face- priceless.
Managed to see Phoebe and her family twice again this week already ... the second time necessitated by my managing to lose my phone. The thought of replacing all the numbers was depressing and I felt real anxiety at being without my lifeline. It transpired I had left the phone at the Farmer store in Rangiora. Doh. Phoebe's mum retrieved it for me yesterday and it is safe back in the bucket bag... it appears no one missed me as there were no texts or calls other than us searching for it. I did find that my anxiety was replaced yesterday with a quiet freedom that no one could disturb me!! Almost liberating :) A reminder of how life can be, and was before cell phones.
I will leave you with Phoebe and head off for another day of water blasting.:)
