The Week That was and the One to Face
The above little piece I started whilst travelling in Europe when we did some felting at the gite in France- it was machine felted and then I started to stitch it. There is a lot of stitching to still go in, but as I have done no other work it is soemthing to show.
The last week has been another roller coaster- we did get the house to rent- hoorah- but there are so many things going on it has been a tedious process moving in and it won't really happen till the weekend. Tonight I have to take my daughter for an MRI scan of a tumour in her left thigh - which has previously been looked at and is benign- but is presently causing her a lot of pain. Then we see the specialist tomorrow.
Then I had a small car accident ( well it was not really an accident more of a minor scratch really) in the car I hired to get home from the aiport- talk about a scratched bumper bar being expensive- there was a $3000 insurance excess and that has gobbled up a lot of my hard earned dollars. ( since when is a plastic bumper bar a 10th of the value of a whole car???) I don't think I will ever hire a car in Australia again- all of my experiences with the car hire companies have not been good.
And we are in the process of trying to arrange a student exchange for my middle daughter int he Netherlands- as she has not been living at home there is a lot of bureaucracy to deal with- though they are supportive of the idea and plan- meanwhile paperwork to do and t's to cross and i's to dot. So not much work is getting done
