OK, it looks like it's been a month since I came here and wrote about all the exciting stuff happening here in Barb's Backyard...I wonder why that is? It's not because I have been too busy doing exciting stuff that's for sure. Though there have been a few places that I have been and one of them was pretty darn cool. Thanks T!
So what has been happening? Hmmm, need to think now...and this is why I started to blog in the first place, so that I would have a way of remembering what I did and where I went...
I went out to lunch with a sister and my mother. I always look forward to that. We decided that we would *do lunch* every month and though we haven't made it every month since we started there have been a few. At the last one we were trying to remember where we had been but none of us could remember them all. I was going to come home and ask the husband as if I had mentioned it to him he would have remembered...but I forgot! One day I will make a list...
I have a sore back and it is a bleedin' pain. It's stopping me from doing all that stuff that I wouldn't want to do if I could. I have just come in from trying to hang up some washing...not good, I felt it *rip* as I flung a pair of trousers over the line. Husband will have to finish hanging it for me. The doctor says it could take another month to heal and just gave me a script for a stronger anti inflammatory. It is a different pain to my usual lower back pain and restricts more movement. I can't raise my arms or lift anything heavy or lean on anything...Darn nuisance anyway. I have the markets on Sunday and hoping that I will manage getting there and setting up OK...Daughter will be there to do most of it so should be OK.
This daughter took me on an adventure last week as a late Mothers Day gift. Her family and husband and I all went on a dolphin cruise in Mandurah with a fish and chip lunch on board. We saw dolphins and cruised the canals looking at all the flash houses, heaps of birds...I loved it.
I haven't planted anything, picking enough to eat with extra to rot in the fridge...that's not good.
Still doing Vinnies and in saying that....I am there this morning so better get a move on.
