Another week done & dusted

Yet another week of routine has crept on by interspersed by visits from friends and family. Only 2 1/2 weeks of treatment left for Roy and the daily routine of train, bus walk, bus, train, travel every day, it’s almost like having a job!! Luckily Roy has so far suffered no side effects from the treatment, long may it continue.

It was an early start on Monday morning as we were heading across town to see brother John and his partner Jude at Auckland Airport. We arrived in time for their 7.30am arrival at the Domestic terminal from Whakatane and to collect a large box of feijoas from Johns garden which will shortly be made into lots of goodies. It was then a short walk over to the International terminal, where we all met for breakfast. John & Jude are off on their overseas odyssey, first to London, then to France, Spain & Portugal where along the way Jude will be walking some of the Camino Santiago path with John driving their motorhome as support crew. But first they will be spending a few days with Alex & Ian so a few goodies from Mum & Dad were stashed into their luggage. I was only slightly envious of their coming adventures – Yeah Right!!!

To add insult to injury, I get sent a picture of John & Jude outside Morrisons….a store we became known to frequent whilst we were there, getting in supplies.

We wish them all the best and are sure they are in for an amazing time.

Bill P called in one afternoon for a cuppa and another morning both Bill P and Janet called in for morning tea, it’s so nice getting visitors especially when we feel so tied to one spot.

The days are starting to get a little cooler as well as darker earlier and earlier in the evenings. However it’s only a month away until the shortest day and then we can look forward to the evenings eking out.

Antony comes round each evening to join us for dinner or sometimes for a change we go to his place where I cook dinner. And there are always chores to be done which keep us busy.
