It's pretty grim around here what with aged care assessments, nursing homes, trying to support a mother who is dropping her bundle, and navigating the bureaucracy, but in the middle of it all the rest of life goes on. The mister had a birthday with a 0 on the end, I went to the wool show in Bendigo with a large contingent of Steiner school mums and managed to mostly keep my wallet in my handbag when it came to yarn (but recklessly purchased a rather fetching and pricey blue wool hat), the middle child and I are touring the universities' open days every weekend, the youngest child had a week camping in the Outback, and work and laundry and cooking don't stop of course. I also did this last weekend.
Pleased. (She said, a bit proudly).
