4 more sleeps to go!!! or 4 more proper sleeps and 8 'nana naps'!! It's starting to feel more real now and I'm starting to count down on my list of things to do. Tomorrow it's pedicure and waxing- lol- obviously the most important thing to do when going O/S!!

It looks as though the old lady ( No 1 cat- aka as 'bad cat') has a bladder infection again. Poor pussy- it antibiotics again for her. We're away next week for 6 weeks so hopefully it will clear before then. That's the problem with ageing animals- visits to the vets and then decisions on what's best for them. Boots is 17 years old and this may be more serious than a bladder infection.

Oh dear- just been fighting with Norton anti virus- why do they always make it so hard. Looking for the product number for ages! Nowhere to be seen. Finally....finally ( after much cursing and abusing of this product) I find it hidden away as part of the wrapping- grrrrr Now its 11.45pm, I'm beyond tired and I have to get up early grrrrrrr I think I'm too tired to go to bed.

I get all the help I need- constantly!!!

Guess I've been forgiven for this morning's task of administering the worm tablets!

Well things are on the move!
1. Mother- in - law is now out of hospital
2. Dog has been vaccinated for his trip to the kennels ( and he was SUCH a good boy:)))
3. We have our 'Return Entry Visas' so us aliens can actually come back to Aus!
4. I've had a haircut
5. My phone is now on international roaming
6. I've requested a new credit card as my old one looks as though it is about to die

phew....there are still heaps of things to do though- wax, pedicure (lol- we are baring out toes at the end of the trip in sunny Port Douglas), car hire, insurance etc etc etc.
Sometimes the list looks endless!

3 weeks to go- mother -in-law in hospital, lists that start at 4 weeks to go and a sore neck/back. Hmmmmm- guess we'll make it! We board the plane to britain on Oct 4th and there seems to be heaps to do. While I was lounging in the bath ( as you do when there's lots and lots and lots to do) I realised that this trip is really a pilgrimage back to our home town. It will be 50 years since I was there with my sisters. It really struck me for some reason and made me realise how significant this will be ( all right I'm not really known for being 'quick'!!) We're going to see our old home and look through it. I can hardly imagine how that will be- I'm guessing fairly emotional and prob not at all like I imagined it to be.

Apart from feeling rather delicate all w/e had a really good one. My friend ( yes... I do have ONE) who headed northward has been heading back south lately so we could meet for our usual Saturday and Sunday walk PLUS a swim a week ago and the intention of a walk and SWIM this week. Ahhhh...this is more like my usual life. Aren't we creatures of habit? I'm sure I'm not the only one who finds real comfort in the sameness of life. Father's Day was great! Caught up with both our kids and grandchildren and daughter in law. Lots of fun. Did a bit of shopping with Catherine ( daughter) and made a date to go shopping with her in a couple of weeks for her birthday which she reminds me- we will be away for like we were for her 21st!!! Oh dear.... what bad parents we are!!!!
