The Family Bandwagon

Our family is spread out across the country and across the world, and what better way to keep in touch than a collaborative digital journal?

I hear there is a new driver in town. Succeeded first try. Well done Jared. Now make sure you obey all of the road rules so you keep that valuable licence.

I'm on the mulberry trail again. Silkworms everywhere. I put out some eggs from last year a couple of weeks ago and today they started hatching. A teacher at  Speci who gave me caterpillars last year is overrun with them and sent many home to me today . Many visits next door for leaves for the next few weeks.

Otherwise, I took Mum to see Dr Irani the eye specialist this morning. He is very happy with the results of the surgery although Mum said her eyes still water and get crusty overnight. I have a prescription for an ointment that she said prevented the problem. Then we went for an ultrasound of her arm to see why her fingers are numb. Arthritis squeezing the nerve which makes it swell so a local injection then a steroid injection. Her doctor had said if one hand improves she can get the other done but the first feeling was I won't bother with the second. I called in on my way home from lunch in Heathcote with friends this evening  and she is feeling happy with the result and now thinks she may well get the second hand done.Not game to suggest that may be the problem with her knee.

Clive and I continue to go dancing although down to four nights a week at the moment. Will add a Sunday afternoon this week in Echuca so the steps will get back up there. We did manage a walk around the lake on Monday morning and maybe we'll manage that again on Thursday. Tomorrow I'll take Mum to a Dyeing day  as a Spinners activity and I need to prepare for that tonight.

Carolynn may update you on what she is up to. She has moved back here at the moment and is helping Lisa when needed with the children.
