up to something

Took this picture a couple of weeks ago when Agato took us up to Mace Town. The kids & I went over this swing bridge on the way back down. Ethan loved going through the river in the truck. I was pleased to finally get there as have never been before.

the Ezine is out

A few of us have been up to something. Check out Precious Pages.
We have been planning this since SENZ last year and are pleased it's finally all go!

CT Scan of break

to show the breakage....they had to pin the bone back together...and the fragments that had come off also...to get a context, the kind of trapezoid bone on the right hand centre of the pic is the patella (knee).

Jase Jumping

not base jumping!
The result of falling 8 - 9 metres from a flying marquee, mary poppins style is a dislocated knee and a femoral condial fracture...rather messy and painful. Almost as painful was the three day wait for acute surgery and the Nil By Mouth each of those days until dinner time...how is a man meant to heal with no nutrition (what he got to eat when he did wasn't really nutritional either), sharing a 4 bedder room and only being allowed visitors between 2 & 8 pm...even one of the other patients had difficulty getting back into the ward with the receptionist telling her off for being in outside visiting hours...till the patient told her she was an 'inmate' and flashed her id bracelet! Really appreciative of the support we received from my mum who looked after the kids (met us in Invervegas when I got there in my car - Jase was in the ambulance), from Leith and Andrea who gave me a bed to sleep on each night, Barbara for feeding the cat and hens and the Waitiri Team who carried on with the Gibbston Harvest Festival in Jase's absence! Thank You.

We also had offers of help from lots of others, thank you also.

I am acutely aware of why I decided nursing wasn't for me after I'd completed my degree and registration.

On more interesting notes - do you like creme eggs? Well, at Andrea's, they have this lolly truck....and apparently she is going to be giving stuff away (and apparently not just chocolate) this coming Friday - to be announced in the forum of Scrapbook Outlet.... so make sure you are registered in the forum so you can discover just what is happening...I don't know either....intriguing!

the best chocolate ever

Melts in your mouth, soft centre, perfect & the pieces come as pieces - you don't even have to break them off.

Another year older

Last week I got older :-) Sally got a photo of me which was good...don't have that many of me :-) Sally asked how many candles I wanted...I suggested 3 - one for each of the kids to blow out, three to represent the number of 10's and the number of 1's in my new age.

Busy with work, new roles, new experiences, scary but good.

Enjoying swimming (a good thing I start work 11:30am...not many people at the pool 10amish).

Have some yummy cosmo cricket and fancy pants scrap goodies to play with...hanging out for a creative evening, think I'll do some creating with Lynley tomorrow night...full on day tomorrow, will be a good chill out time! Lynley & I are doing a stand at the Arrowtown Autumn Festival Market Day on April 18th so have some creating to do in preparation!
