A Day in the Life

An Attempt to keep friends up to date!

Sep-4

An update from Tish.

So this year continues to be one of the worst for a while. 

6 weeks ago my mum had a fall and broke her rib. Not wanting to be a nuisance she didn't go to the doctor for nearly a month. Of course by then she contracted influenza A. She has been incredibly ill.

Then 10 days ago my oldest daughter moved up to Brisbane in the Sunshine state of Queensland. She now lives 14 hours north of us. She has a fantastic new job and new life.

Following her move my son in law has gone down to Melbourne to study for three weeks. 

Then the day after they left my other daughter had a car accident with her son in the back. The front end of the car is in bad condition but she and Zac are ok. My son and I scooted down there to make sure they were ok and Zac was sick with a throat infection and a high temp. That was cool, we came home and our daughter rang us a few days later, she had caught the bug. 

She had a very high temp for 3 days but was coming good. But Saturday morning things turned pear shaped. She was admitted to hospital with bilateral pneumonia and bradycardia and she is still there. I am going down to Canberra tomorrow to stay and look after her and Zac until my son in law gets back in 2 weeks. I will be at leat 2 weeks maybe 3 before I get back.

So I hope you are all understanding why the posting has dropped off again. 

The last 5 years have been one catastrophe after another. I know God has a plan but at times I wish He would give me a hint to when these challenges and sad times will come to an end.

We would appreciate prayer for everything that I have shared and the other stuff I haven't as well. 

Thanks

Birthday celebrations

The family birthday dinner
Another year has passed. October 23 is a special day in our family. My brother and I are born on dad's birthday. Dad and I also share the same birth time. My brother is 4 years younger than me. We had a lovely quiet family dinner, made a little more special by the visit of my school friend from Queensland.

The following night my husband and son took me to see South Pacific at the Opera House. This week is the 40th birthday celebration of the opening of the Sydney Opera House. In the photos we are standing on front of the mural at the top of the stairs in the smaller shell. That is where the Opera Theatre is. The view is from the bar. This sits beside the larger shell which has the Concert Hall.

My son is now a regular performer at the Opera House as a member of the Junior Symphony Choir called VOX. This Sunday they are performing at the reopening of the forecourt for the 40th birthday celebration.

It will be broadcast, I will put the link here when it is available.

Until later

7 months - we are almost there

New kitchen in
 
Appliances in
Hall fixtures in
Inside painting complete, feature wall & floors repaired & polished
It's now 7 months since a storm and a tree changed our lives. We are almost ready to move home. A few final touches to the repair by the builder and a sign off next Wednesday by the insurance company. Then we should be moving home the following week. Still so much to do and with 2 big birthday parties in July and a mega event at the beginning of August to look forward to, we are still so very busy. We bought our new media unit and dining suite last night, they are delivered at the end of the month. A huge buffet and hutch will be delivered that week as well. Still so many things to purchase and replace and it won't be until we unpack everything, will we find if we are missing anything. Here's hoping by Spring we should be fully settled back in. Tish
