I emerged from my bed well rested and ready for a lovely restful, peaceful day around 7am.
Richard and Helen were up soon after and then when Graham came by in his boat he took them for a quick trip up to Waterfall Bay.
While they were gone I hung out washing and put away most of the pillowcases.
Just for fun I counted them – I have over 160.
Needless to say I am biffing a large number of them, but still have well over 100 in the cupboard.
When they returned we enjoyed a delicious breakfast together – poached eggs & hash browns with toast and vegemite.
Then they had to leave as they had a long way to go and several visits to make on their way to the ferry.
Richard had taken such a liking to our picturesque cabbage tree I had to get a pic of them under it.
Once they had gone I decided to blob for a while.
So I sat down to watch ‘Hilary & Jackie’.
I was totally engrossed in it when I got a text from Bri asking me to call her.
So I did. She is enjoying life in Australia so it was good to hear all about it.
It started to spit with rain so I tore out and got all the washing in and finished it off in the dryer.
Then the sun came out-!!
I headed back into the warmth of the living room to open the mail.
I sat down to finish watching the movie and Herb arrived, so he joined me to watch the end.
It was an extremely moving story – one which was very close to home as my sister-in-law died had multiple sclerosis and died only a month after Jacqueline du Pré at a similar age.
Once it had finished I got onto getting dinner ready for the troops. Herb gave me a hand which was great.
They got back from the camping trip around 6pm.
They had had a wonderful time and were all blissfully weary.
No deer this time, but lots of fish.
I will extract photos from the various cameras to share with you once the have all had a chance to rest up tonight.
Sebastian arrived back from work tonight – he has been on the boat for quite a while and has been working some very long days – yesterday he said they did 19 hours – so is needing some sleep and motherly TLC methinks.
Anson is on his way home now – he will be late but he has already text ahead requesting a gang of musterers for an early morning muster. He is wanting to get the sheep in and shorn before he leaves for Sardinia at the end of next week.
I am off to have a spa and get to bed as it looks like we are in for a few more busy days – what’s new?
