Had a quick spa this morning sometime before 8am but missed out on the bathroom so ended up in the study talking through the window to Anson clad in must my towel.
You didn’t really need to hear that did you?
But just wanted to point out that even in a house with 2 bathrooms and only 3 kids I still cannot get in there when I want to!
Finally managed to get in and complete my ablutions and find some clothes.
Anson & Shoshannah were on tenter hooks, they were sposed to be heading off on a three day hunting trip with Jonny but at last minute it all fell through.
The countryside is just so dangerously tinder dry at present that the forest owners are not happy about letting anyone in.
This is one of my favourite dressings which I buy when I am in Auckland from Sabato.
Took a pic to send to Genevieve to show her what it is and Mahalia decided she needed to model it 🙂
I had time to do some banking and then Merv & Dean arrived in their boat to pick me up.
We shot along to Waterfall Bay to see Seb & Phoebe.
Much easier and more pleasant route than driving over the hill.
Had a very enjoyable pow wow together, talking business and other stuff.
I got some Sapphire cuddles, she went to sleep on my shoulder and then slept on in her buggy despite Dean’s very loud explosive laughter 🙂
She woke just before we were leaving.
The district nurse arrived as we were about to walk out the door.
It was lovely to meet her.
She weighted and measured Sapphire – she is 9 weeks and is now 7.64kg (16.84lbs)
Plus she’s grown another 2cm in length = 63cm.
Growing like a wee mushroom!
The guys dropped me back home in time for the mailboat.
I helped Anson & Shoshannah move his table into Azzan’s room.
We are storing it for a while to give Anson & Marah more room in their wee house.
Mahalia cleaned The Cottage and Azzan did some cleaning up around the house.
I somehow do not think as much got done as I had put on his list – come to that, I wonder if he even read his list!
Spent the arvo doing mail and paying bills and organizing mail etc.
Trying to simplify things for when I am not here.
I have things to do, places to go and people to see 🙂
The nurse came over to visit Marah & Eden and then popped around to visit me.
Went for a wander up the hill to her car with her.
She is lovely – the girls are very blessed to have her come to them.
Mahalia & Azzan made salmon & kumara fritters for dinner.
Azzan arranged beautiful salads on our plates.
He wanted to make them as healthily as he could.
It was very tasty with interesting flavor combinations.
Shredded lettuce, carrot sticks, boiled eggs with crystalized ginger and shredded almonds on top.
There was a lot of tomfoolery and craziness going on all the while they were making dinner.
We sat in my bed and watched ‘Life as We Know it’.
Had a long chat with Phillipa after the kids went off to bed.
Then chatted with Jesika after they arrived in Kalgoorlie.
Nice to know they shave reached their destination and not been bowled over by roos or camels, or run over by the huge 4 length road trains!!
Pretty lethal that desert 😉
Day 3 for Jesika & Evan.
Eucla – Kalgoorlie.
Jut a short hop today – approx 900kms in 13 hours!
Jesika drove this stretch today – bet that was booorrrrriiiiing!
