Off to China

Just a quick post today, yesterday was spent packing and such and today will be spent travelling same for tomorrow.

Tim & I are going to China for a holiday, it is a 10 day guided tour cost us $1998 for the two of us that includes air fare, accommodation, tours and some meals, so a pretty good price.

I will not be posting much while away but when I get back there will be heaps of post trip posts.

Leo dragged out a large suit case and asked if we could pack him in it and take him with us…………..

When asked what he wanted me to bring him back from China he said Papa safe……………….


Thank you Sue

Hello everyone it is a cold and wet morning here in Newie although it looks like it might become fine at some point.

I am waiting for someone to come and do a housing maintenance walk through too document anything that needs repairing in the house. They are suppose to be here by 11am but we will see.

Mum said her and dad are doing much better, so much so that my sister Sue who has been staying with them for the last six weeks has spent the last few nights at her own flat, when she told dad that she was going back to her flat on Friday night he said NO you can’t go I need you here. She talked to him and said she had to go home at some point and he said NO you have to move back in here. That said he coped fine without here and she spent a few nights in her own flat and still went and got him up in the morning.

Mum has told me often that Sue has been fantastic and she doesn’t know how they would have coped without her there.

I have been so thankful to Sue as well, it has been a weight off my mind knowing she was there with them.

You do it or let some else do it

What’s one thing you’d rather pay someone to do than do yourself?

One thing? How about many things such as house work and lawn care when I was younger I was fine doing these things well not the lawn care I have never done lawn care, Tim always took care of the outside of the house. Now days he prefers to pay our next door neighbour to do the lawn he is in his 60’s, Tim who is 57 finds it too much hard work.

Even though I would prefer to pay someone else to do my housework I still do 90% of the housework such as the laundry and the vacuuming and the dishes because that is just the way it is.

So what about you?
