It has been a month since Dad passed away, and life is starting to get back to some sort of normality. There will always be the sadness and my eyes well up with tears when I look at photos of him, but his life was good and we are to be thankful. Mum is doing really well, she is surrounded by lovely people at Resthaven who are keeping her company and involving her in the activities that go on, and she is receiving quite a few visitors too. Such a blessing.
Our newest Cafe in town is within one of our wonderful gift/home shops called Lavilla. It's a great place to catch up for coffee and light lunches with friends, which I did last week. I ad a delicious Turkey baguette and iced coffee.
On boxing day when Daniel and Telesha announced their engagment, we went around to their place at night for pizzas and drinks with both families. It was a fun night. One of Telesha's nieces kept coming over to my hubby Paul to get her head rubbed...she loved it.
Paul and I headed down to McLaren Vale for a couple of days and stayed with good friends. One of the nights we got Barnacle Bills and took it down to the beach, we haven't been to the beach for so long. The photo is of 2 of our friends daughters, Lauren and Hannah.
Back in my teenage years I loved reading the Sue Barton series of books by Helen Dore Boylston, which followed the life of 3 friends who started nursing together. There were 7 books in the series. I managed to find the 'Visiting Nurse' book at an opp shop recently and enjoyed reading it. I have the 'Superintendent Nurse' and am now on the lookout for the rest to make up the series.
