Hellooooo!

Sorry I've been MIA for a day or two, but I'm back now, although I'm off to Mass in a sec. Suffice to say, rough weekend but it's looking better now so I'm back on track although way behind now with my Safe deadline (sorry, Viv) - I think I'm feeling better about things, kind of. I'll get there, always do. I'd have to admit I'm pretty fragile this morning though, not really looking forward to reflective time in church. I might have to keep my head out of that game and in my writing ;) I'm blessed really so I shouldn't have much to complain about, huh. Doesn't make ordinary old life any easier though, some days.

It's really sunny here, and one of our stalwart and key parishioners just found out he is dying of cancer. I know all his children and grand-children, so I know it's going to rock the community quite a bit. A lot of people seem to be dying of cancer just now. Our friends came to dinner last night, but he's an oncologist and she's a GP at the hospice, and between them they formed a tag team, being on call, we had one first for nibbles, both for the meal, then the other had to go. The remaining three of us dusted off our twenty year old Trivial Pursuit and had a game until well past midnight when we had to declare a draw! My greatest achievement of the night? Knowing the biggest island in the Kermadecs!

Gotta go. I'll catch up during the day, I expect... hope you're all well. Must tell you about my dentist later...

I wondered where you had been, I've been busy getting moth1's novel on line and getting ready to entertain lots of people here tomorrow afternoon. I've got church before then which means I won't have much time to get organised in the morning so I've done heaps of shopping and preparing today... my fridge is so full!!!

Hope you are feeling okay now and survive church. Don't worry about the deadline for Safe, some things just can't be rushed, when it comes it comes...
I'll look forward to it any way...

Just look after yourself!

Ooh, the cool icon! Thanks. I hope you are going to have a wonderful day.

I'm okay, I get by! Just want to write and there just isn't time to do that as well as the 258,456 things I need to do around the place, really. And I can't just leave everything else. I'm just so torn. It's harder than being at work.

That's true. For the most part, our lives are good. Still, it can be hard to get through the day even knowing that facts.

Glad you're getting there!

Thanks, yeah, I'm getting there. Just want less to do, so I can do more of what I want, I guess. Well, any of what I want *snort*

Selfish, I guess. But we all have our moments, huh!

Yeah, it'd be nice if you had a little time for yourself. That's important, it keeps you sane.

Yep, definitely felt a little insane this weekend *g*

Fine now, I think.
