Herself was called in to see the doctor today and will have to go back again next week. . A few years ago she had a mammogram and they found a suspicious lump. That led to weeks of trauma as we went from one set of tests and biopsy to a another and different set of tests and a biopsy. They finally came to the conclusion that it was a benign cyst – which, to say the least – was something of a relief. Well she went for another mammogram last month and they now want to see her again and that’s why we went today. However, with the new rules there needs to be a female nurse present and she was not available so we have to go back again next week. I know you will wonder why I keep saying “we” but herself is slightly disabled and does not drive, thus I have to take her. More than likely that it will be the cyst showing up again and they want to check it out – at least that’s what we hope it is.
We’ve put the lounge back together again and I’ve moved out the extra chairs back to garage until next time. I generally cover them in plastic sheeting to keep most of the dust out. Now the coffee group has moved on to a new venue for July and it will be some time before they are back here again. However, not as long as one would imagine since a few of the ladies are in nursing homes, or retirement villages and don’t have the facilities to be able to hold the group where they live.Actually when you think about it, it’s not so bad and supper is always interesting- some of the ladies are really good bakers.
Have completed the Agenda for the Ordinary Meeting and the Agenda for the Annual General Meeting. We have an Ordinary Meeting to tidy up any outstanding business before we hold the AGM with the Rep.from Central Operations in Adelaide assuming the chair as all positions are declared vacant. I really don’t know how I would manage all this without my Filofax – between that and work and medical appointments, it helps to keep me to keep track of everything and I have it synchronised with my computer. It keeps me sane — Well we won’t go too deeply into that! The only problem is that I have to send either to the UK or the USA (mostly USA) for refills.Well, it’s cheaper to buy the inserts from the USA and pay postage costs than it is to buy them and have them posted from Sydney. Strange, but true…
Coffee Clubs and Medication????? I thought coffee was medication :o)
Anything goes wrong and I am up for big bucks. In order to accommodate a dog, I have moved my chair further away from the desk and moved the computer closer to the edge. Yes, I know, people type with dogs on their lap all the time but for me it’s a new experience – and it’s not my dog. I have been looking after this little fellow for friends who have gone to Adelaide for medical treatment. This is a dog that they adopted but it was a rescue dog who had been abused, chained up and left to fend for itself. It took a lot of work by the South Australian Dog Rescue to look after him to the stage where he could be adopted. However, he is a very “clingy” dog and hates to be left on his own (Understandable) This was the reason they felt that he would not be put into boarding kennels and decided to ask me to look after him. For the last couple of weeks they have brought him over to get used to my dogs Not the greatest success and at the moment it’s sort of “Armed Neutrality” – growling but not fighting. This dog needs to be touched and to be very close to his human – hence him being on my lap. He will not look at my wife at all and was upset because I went out this morning. He is very affectionate but my two are ganging up on him. I was out working in the garage for a while and decided to come back inside for coffee. I came to the back door and my two were standing guard at the back door and growling when he came near. The little buggers were refusing to let the visitor pass. Rather than have a confrontation, I took him out the gate and had Annabell open the front door and brought him in that way. Actually, I am , in an odd sort of way, quite proud of my two the way they worked together against what they saw as an intruder. :o)
Anyway, that was his morning and afternoon and now the little fellow has gone home. Friends came back from Adelaide this afternoon and off he went back home – and I kind of miss him – even after only three days. At least the computer is back in a less precarious position – that’s always something. I took several photographs of the dog and for some unexplainable reason, this program insists on setting them in in a Landscape setting rather than a Portrait setting, which is annoying. And yes, I have resized them, cropped them and I open them and they are nice portrait, but when I try to insert one on here it reverts to landscape. I guess you can take it that I am not the world’s greatest photographer – more a point and shoot kind of person.
