The two weeks with Isabel and her family included:
- lots of cuddles
- lots of washing
- lots of time spent just gooing over her
- lots of time spent with her brother, Oscar
- lots of great time spent with her Mum and Dad - Debs and Tim
- the time spent with Oscar included story time, of course, and both of us riding bikes and scooters. Unfortunately those outdoor activities were cut short on Monday 7th, when I came a cropper off my scooter, took a lot of skin off, bruised many body parts - that are still hurting - and broke my left arm.
That brought on decisions that had to be made about all sorts of things - doctors' visits had to be changed, I had to elicit the help of my friend, Ros, to gather scanned documents that would help excuse me from jury duty I was supposed to commence today. I was excused.
Well, now I couldn't drive the Hopemobile home, so it stayed at Tim's and I flew home this morning. Still working out how and when I can get it back to the Gong. If, as you are reading this, you think you might like to fly to the Gold Coast and then have a leisurely campervan trip back the the Gong, then let me know.
This has all been typed with one hand, so now I need a rest.
