Remember that wee car accident I had a couple of weeks back? Well since then my back and neck has been niggly. But last week I was starting to get a tingling sensation so I thought it best I get it seen to. I have a lovely physiotherapist who crunches and cracks my bones followed by the best massage ever. I went last week and looking forward to going again tomorrow because it basically is starting to piss me off now. I can carry on as normal but by the end of the day I have a hot water bottle on the sore bit.
I am not sure I like this getting older gig.
Yesterday Jak had his game of Rugby in Morrinsville, an easy drive from Hamilton East ward in the country. Driving into MoTown as we like to call it I saw this sign 'Hidden Treasures', so I slid into a car park outside the door. Such very cool stuff, things that totally belong in my memories like an old Kevanator Fridge just like we had in our beach house. Next time I am going to ask if I can take photos inside. I was on a time limit as kick off was nearing so a trip back is on the cards, you hear that Sue Webber??!!
A few doors down is the bright yellow building full and I mean FULL of stuff. Seriously I had a brief look inside and decided I needed much more time, like an hour maybe. As I drove into the main street I noticed that the Red Cross shop was still open so I parked and went in. Found this gorgeous blanket for $8, so much cheaper than town. You only get manky ones for that price in town so $8 was good.
Because I am such a good mother I made it to the rugby game before it started. You know you have to pay for parking at the grounds, $3 a car. Except I paid $8 as I gave the man a $20 note and only got $12 back, this I did not discover until later. Maybe a premium park, one with a view, or room service?? No, not at all. Lets just call it a donation and move on. Jak ended up getting a kick in his back that had him laid out on the ground struggling to breathe. So after trying to keep playing he ended up coming off, unhappy and quite sore.
I ended up leaving as by then my back was giving me jip
and it was 18* so I was slowly cooking
in my inappropriate Winter clothes
that I had chosen to wear.
Silly me, thinking it was WINTER!!!
But being that good mother meant that I had to go out again early evening to pick Jak and one of his mates up from their club rooms (slightly pie eyed) and bring them back here. They were intending on a big night out but Jak ended up staying home because he was so sore. More lads arrived and they all went out, while he had Anti Flam rubbed on his back, given my hot water bottle, and a coffee.
We watched the Rugby on TV, our All Blacks playing England. When I say watch, I was doing other things at the same time that required my reading glasses. Apparently we won but only just, just the wake up call needed at the beginning of a test series one thinks.
These three weren't the slightest bit interested in the game let alone the result.
I ventured outside in the pitch black with my new speed light flash to see what I could get.
Think I am going to have fun with this new toy.
I went to bed leaving Jak having guitar lessons via the web. He learned to play when he was younger so hopefully he will pick it up again easily. Max is also learning, both getting lessons from a guy they work with. I am now thinking that maybe they will be able to teach me, I used to play the piano a hundred years ago so this could be fun.
Imagine we could go busking as a family??
I can see their faces now
if I dare to suggest such a thing,
even if only in jest!!
Today I slept in, (unheard of I know!!) woken by hungry pets. Then Max arrived around so we had a cooked breakfast. I went out with him to go shopping for a few things then dropped him home again.
Good mother again!!
I love all the colours leaves turn before they totally give into death!
Dying leaves and sweet little sparrows are filling my back garden at the moment and I am loving it all. Today turned into a somewhat dull day so the backyard colour was welcome.
Spoke to TOF just before who is on his one day a week off. He is fine, tells me he is making the most of having Sky Movies in his motel room, and it is raining up in the Winter-less North. Pretty sure the entire country is in for some Wintery weather this week.
Glad I have got all the washing up to date.
Haven't sorted my Winter clothes out as yet,
that now will have to happen another day.
That is the best thing about Today,
there is always Tomorrow!!
Glad I don't work on Monday's!!
