This morning I took Ashy to the airport.
She is flying 3000 kilometres south to spend Christmas and New Year with her gentleman caller and his family.
The rest of us have a long trip planned too.
Next week we will leave on a very long road trip. We are driving south from Townsville over 2000 kilometres to Sydney making lots of stops on the way to explore and investigate. Ashy will join us along the way and spend time in Sydney too.
The time has come for Philip to have a follow up surgery. For two years the metal bar in his chest has been holding his ribs in place, but now it is time for the bar to be removed and his ribs to hold themselves.
This surgery should be less traumatic than the previous one. We feel a whole lot calmer as we approach it. We have the same doctor as we had last time. We will go to the same hospital and stay at the same motel. Everything is a bit more familiar than it was this time two years ago.
I also plan to visit the zoo and see the new baby elephant and hope to get around to some quilting shops while we are in Sydney.
Sydney bloggers I’d love to have a catch up – a lunch or a dinner. Mary took me to yum cha in the city last time. It was wonderful! Is anyone keen?
