|Quilts from the Heart - Elaine's Wagga|
Thank you to all the people who left comments to confirm that my comments box is working, well for some people anyway. I have been a bit distracted this week, so not replied to everyone as my father collapsed while on the phone to me (Monday) and ended up being transferred (by air because he lives a 3.5 hr drive) to Melbourne. They have scheduled him for a pacemaker on Monday, which apparently is considered a minor procedure, and I have been told should be the end of any need for medical intervention, much to everyone's relief. Dad isn't impressed as the doctor thinks he wont be able to weld...hmmmm the least of my concerns I can tell you, especially as he had been driving the truck all day before I called him! That and the fact that he still cuts all their own wood for the wood heater. I am a bit tempted to send the tradesman around to have the gas heater installed while he is still in hospital!
On a lighter note we attended the show as a family, which was a nice outing, but very different from previous years. Priorities have now started to focus on show bags, junk food and rides, as DS1 is now at school and influenced by the other kids experiences. This is very disappointing to me as I loved taking the boys to see the animals and hand crafts. I did get to check out the decorated cakes but DS2 was convinced that all those cakes and a "present" (show bag) meant that it was his birthday! Which made for a very funny running commentary if you were stuck behind me in the queue to look at the cakes..the absence of candles didn't convince him that it wasn't his birthday!
Happy quilting, Sue SA.
