Quick catch up

Hello strangers. In some ways, we had a quiet week last week. Andrew was recovering from an accident on the bike that left him concussed, with a black eye, swollen cheek and assorted scrapes and bruises. Thankfully, it happened when he was almost home and he made it the rest of the way. We spent a couple of hours at the hospital and nothing was broken. I can recommend rugby league grand final evening, before and during the game, as a good time to visit emergency, very quiet it was. It's a horrible place, though, shabby and dispiriting. 
The Shephards picked the kids up for us and took care of them at their house. Shep returned them later on, with name tags in case Andrew was still feeling the memory loss effects of concussion. He stayed home from work for most of the week and is feeling much better now. Exercise is dangerous!
The kids went back to school with varying degrees of enthusiasm. The older two have exams coming up but I feel like the weeks are going to fly past. Joss and I went to a French Immersion Hour at the library. It was part of Fusion, the multicultural festival, and was advertised as being about French food and culture. It turned out to be a French language lesson and Joss was not terribly impressed! I had a great time and she did manage to eat three macarons.
Now we are heading into weeks filled with musical rehearsals and performances and regular gigs for Andrew and card classes and markets for me. It'll be Christmas before we know it and I'm pleased about that. 

I haven't taken many photos, this is what Bethany and I do on lazy weekend mornings. Tea and reading. What more could you ask for?


  1. Glad Andrew is OK. Thank goodness for crash hats eh? Indeed, Christmas is just around the corner. Yea!

  2. What a great weekend morning ritual. I might have to follow suit :)
