From slow to go

Have had a very full and fun-filled couple of weeks.
Last week Ryan was in respite, so this saw me go out on Wednesday night with Colleen to a theatre restaurant. Saw a great show called Ghouls night out. As always with her, we had lots of laughter and even more talking.

I am trying to talk Colleen and another friend Jan into coming on a road trip to Melbourne in a motor home with me. I think I might be slowly wearing them down haha.

The next day Peter went in for some tests. Still don't have the results from that yet. Fingers crossed its all fine. While he was there I went shopping and ran into an old friend that I haven't seen for years. She came over the following day for lunch.

That Thursday night I got to cross another item off my list. Peter, Troy, Danielle and I went to the Comedy Club for dinner and the show. Very funny comedians and lovely food.

Out again on the Friday night for dinner with Ryan and Peter and I was going to sleep at the table.

Saturday off to the doctors as I have a touch of cellulitist in my leg. Antibiotics which I am still on and another trip back today and hopefully it will clear up soon.

Another item off my list on Wednesday, when Jade and I went to aqua aerobics. I had so much fun at it, that I went again today. Am going to try and go a couple of times a week, to the early morning class or Monday's lunch time when Ryan is doing his study with his carer.

Speaking of Ryan, he had lung and heart specialists in the last week and both have given good reports. He met his new carer and as of Monday will have 4 hours with him and will do his photography course.

I need to make sure I take photos of everything I do this year, as I am thinking of doing a book up of the  items I cross of my list and memories.

Well this week coming I plan to get some stuff listed for sale on the net and next weekend I am also doing a cheese making class with Jan. Can't wait to catch up with the girls from school on Sunday for lunch.

hmmmm just noticed that one of our family of three geckos that live on the outside of our front window at night, is now on the lounge room wall. Have to go and get Peter to remove it.
