Got home from the trip away - full of a cold - coughing and spluttering to find Emma had sent some photo via email to me. One of her and I and then one of the three of us. I am going to get some professional prints done so I can update my photo frame. I am really pleased with the photos. We had a great day.
Our few days away were interesting. The hotel in Taupo was lovely - nice meal, toasty warm bed and then a lovely breakfast the next morning. Peter gave me a double CD of Simon & Garfunkel. He had looked at getting tickets to the concert but they were over $300 a seat so thought the CD was the next best thing. We listened to it on our way down to Levin.
His Mum was not looking too good when we got there, but the next day - being her birthday - she was very bright. She had lots of visitors and cards and flowers. However it did tire her out and yesterday she looked shattered. His sister, too, was not well. She has started her treatments - we took her to the hospital on Monday, but she had another seizure that night. Luckily not bad and she was back home by just after midnight. So we managed to get away on time. That meant we managed to get through the Desert Road in the middle of the island, before the snow came. This morning's news said it was closed due to snow. We could see it was dark and looked like snow was on the way.
Today I am just pottering round at home. I am too sick to go to work as I can hardly talk. My throat is very sore and my cough is awful. I've got a doctor's appointment tomorrow so hopefully nothing too serious - just a cold I hope.
Think I will spend some time this afternoon visiting my favourite blogs and even doing a card or two.
Thanks for visiting.
