Been trying to tidy the house , but only a small amount done found out I have another addiction pens this is getting serious a handful or more out of two handbags , many on bedside table ! Donating them to DH and DM who asked each day who has my pen !just a little tiered . DH cam home at lunchtime and we sat down on the couch , I was out to it in five minutes. Then I had to cook so made caramel macadamia slice . DS and I made a search dash for DH , for an hour we rang made texts .. no reply . He was fine just moving machinery from paddock.

We had a car run today. We took the old Ute. It is the first time we have taken it on a Model A run. Then later in the day DH and DD went out driving in the Mustang. She ended up dropping him at home and going out by herself, apparently he was a very bad backseat driver. She said she found it easier to concentrate on it being LH drive without him.  I thought it was hilarious. 😀😀😀😀😀

Cookie, that is a hoot.   My dad taught me to drive and I was amazed at how patient he was.
K Atie, I also have an addiction to pens.  So I understand.  ;D
I have 2 women coming to learn about making SD.

Iím also pen addicted but the darn things keep moving from one place to another and I can never find those in my handbag unless I empty it.  If I go to heaven I hope never to see another pen up there!

LOL Cookie, so DH was dumped back home so that DD could do her own thing.  Hilarious, were his feelings hurt or did he understand what heís like when he isnít the driver?

He took it well Judy. She just said ďno backseat drivers allowed.Ē

My 6 month old coffee machine has been playing up. I spent over an hour on the phone this morning and it has to go back to Melbourne! That was another hour trying to pack it up. It makes lovely coffee so I hope itís not gone too long.

I did a pile of ironing. I think there was something like 13 pairs of trousers/shorts. DH wears shorts in the summer that have to be ironed, and I wear 3/4 pants that need to be ironed. Also DD wears cooler trousers that need to be ironed. Sorry Gert.. they really do need ironing.  ;D ;D ;D

Gosh I wouldnít get that much ironing in 3 months or so cookie, I have a lovely steam iron now though so ironing is not such a chore.  I do allow the basket to pretty well fill up before doing any ironing though.  I agree that some things just have to be ironed but try and buy things that donít.

Spent two hours in the middle of the day moving DH paddocks . Many trips two field bins through gates . Fire truck, ute , header and chaser bin . I only moved the field bins and DH to each vehicle. We were very hungry by 2.30 . Did another move this evening and dinner drop off . Back tonight at about 10 pm to get DS who is on the chaser bin . Nearly done .

Went to the doctor this morning to get the results of my blood tests. My cholesterol is up a bit and he is talking about medication for it. He also mentioned a calcium test which is like a scan of your heart to see if you have any blockages or near blockages. He said to think about it. I really don't know.

I usually go along with whatever my doctor suggests cookie, why the hesitation?

There has been a lot of talk about statins Judy. I will discuss it with my handy pharmacist at length and go back and have a chat with my doctor. He is very good.
I went for a hair cut this afternoon and arranged a lunch date with my friends who are still working.
