So busy and a new knee scheduled for mid-month ~ July 2017
Hope is the little voice you hear whisper ‘maybe’
when it seems the entire world is shouting no.
Saturday 1st July 2017
I went as usual to do my shopping early. Usually I buy my lucky numbers from the Men’s Shed chaps but they weren’t there which is very unusual; I just hope they are okay. I then did a few chores before setting up the Mah Jong tiles ready to play. I spent the afternoon playing with Suzanne, Susan and Jeanette. It was very pleasant but I was not on form and scored my lowest score ever.
Sunday 2nd July 2017
A small group of us went in the mini bus to Ferns. This trip was originally organised for Roger to share Ferns with Karen and Peter plus a visit to the Nob Creek Pottery was included. Sadly, Roger had to opt out as he was now sick. The rest of us visited the pottery where a few purchases were made and then we made our way to Ferns where we were met by Sue and Barbara who travelled in the car. It was a really good afternoon and Marto and Genevieve as always looked after us very well.
Monday 3rd July 2017
I worked all day on the accounts and lease documents. I felt like the cold was coming back and it was struggle to get everything balanced. By evening time, I decided I would phone the doctor’s surgery for an appointment, I need to get well for the 17th which is the day of my operation.
Tuesday 4th July 2017
Pete Mate and I had a quick trip into Yeppoon, me to shop and Pete Mate to wash Billy. We then went to the doctor’s. It wasn’t our usual GP as she was away. He was, however, very through and very pleasant. The computers and phone lines were down so he couldn’t access our medical histories. He gave me a script for antibiotics and told me to use a nasal spray. Pete Mate has to have a chest X-ray. Once home we had a quick lunch, I then went over to help Sue for twenty minutes, then Suzanne and I went to Robyn’s (in the park) to play Mah Jong which was followed by wine and nibbles. A very pleasant afternoon.
Wednesday 5th July 2017
Sue and I went into Yeppoon for an appointment which went very well. Afterwards we managed a little shopping, I bought a skateboard, and then morning tea. We then attended the Yeppoon Community Centre where we saw all the stars many groups had made for the Million Star Project.

In the afternoon I held a ‘Morning Tea’ meeting for the volunteers. It went really well and I value the ladies input and feel we will have a very successful event. Afterwards Sue and I counted all the raffle prizes and auction items. It is amazing how many we have.
Thursday 6th July 2017
It was CWA morning today, but no card making because Thelma had a medical appointment. I took my jewellery making and it took me a little while with lots of help to remember how to do it. We were about ready to leave when Iris lost her balance and fell over. She cut her head and was quite dazed. BJ drove her car home and I followed in Billy. We then waited for her son and daughter-in-law to arrive. Pete Mate spent the day in Rocky with Roger so in the afternoon I had some peaceful time and a snooze. Happy hour was held at Jill and Sandy’s place. We were a large crowd and it was a very long and very happy, happy hour.
Friday 7th July 2017
I went into Yeppoon with Sue for another appointment which went well. Afterwards we met up with Barbara and Peter for lunch. Then Sue and Barbara went off to do some shopping whilst Pete Mate and I went to the hospital for his chest X-ray. We then had a couple of things to do in Emu Park, one being to see the girls in the library to give them their lucky door raffle tickets.
However, I dropped the book walking from the car to the library. Pete Mate and I searched everywhere for it but didn’t have any success. When I asked in the hairdressers (I had called in there for a donation for the raffle), Cath, the owner gave me another book to use. Very kind. Later I received a message on my phone that someone had handed it in to Cath. It seems I must have dropped it on the road just before a car parked over it.
A few of us went to the Bowling Club for dinner which was very pleasant and, as there wasn’t any music this week, we were able to chat.
Saturday 8th July 2017
I was out early to do my shopping; once again it was much easier than going later. Men’s Shed chaps were there selling their lucky numbers - apparently last week the rosters got mixed up. I bought raffle tickets from a lady selling them to raise money for a local choir. I mentioned the Big Morning Tea I am organising for Friday. The lady said she couldn’t come but gave me a donation of $20! How lovely is that? Once home I had a few chores to do before lunch then I played Mah Jong all afternoon with Susan, Suzanne and Jeanette. I did not do very well again. Happy hour was very pleasant.
Sunday 9th July 2017
I had a busy morning but managed to get a lot of things done. Pete Mate and I went over to the barbecue area for lunch with some of our friends. It was a very pleasant way to spend a Sunday lunch. Once home Pete Mate had his nanny nap and I continued with my 'to do' list. We didn’t go over to happy hour as I was busy. By evening time I was very pleased with how much I had achieved.
