DH is due to have some fasting blood tests last week. Like you he has been busy Chookie. You obviously have a lovely GP. Not many would say that.

Catching up on housework today. Visitors also which is lovely.

Mondayís job for you Chookie  to have a fasting blood test !
What a day ! I seem to be running in circles, dropped into town to get some sourdough DH ordered, brought so baked goods from local church group . Chattered to friends of MILs . Had a sad call from a v close friend. Leaped into car to do the shopping ( haha as in I also needed to do Christmas shopping that didnít happen ) collected DS from Rist ( ag cert 111 course) dog training! Home . Meanwhile DH and his siblings had a meeting for his DM at the rehabilitation center !! Itís an epic journey of shear determination of my MIL to stay just where she is as she likes it there . Well news for her itís a stepping stone no the Ritiz ! Too funny really. All will work out fine but testing times for all . Day gone and not much achieved foe me .

Oh KAtie, feel for you all with MIL and rehab center. Itís the one on one care that they give.  Fortunately for us, RAL couldnít get out of there fast enough. ( although they did follow him home)

Any one who makes their own bread, please read this . Itís in the Australian Guardian,

Yesterday I reported for jury duty. There was more security checking done than boarding a plane. The 500+ of us were put into a very large room and shown videos etc about jury duty. A group of 20 were then taken out, (the numbers being drawn by a ballot) and then another 20 selected. I was in that number. We were taken outside and told we werenít required yesterday or today and to report tomorrow morning. Hopefully I get tipped out then too.

Being called for jury duty is something I have always dreaded Cookie.  Fingers crossed that you arenít called for a case.

I would have been devastated if I wasnít called out cookie, itís a great experience. A little close to Christmas now though to be starting a case so maybe youíll be lucky next time too.

Like Trudy, jury duty does not appeal to me and I hope I never get the call.

I went back in for jury duty today. I got called out for duty, then as the jury officer was speaking to us she took a call. The case that we were to be the jury for had been abandoned. I was very pleased. We were then dismissed for the rest of the week. Apparently this isnít uncommon. People plead guilty at the last moment and the jury is no longer needed.

Not a lot done here. I planted out 3 Dragon Fruits that I had rooted in water inside. Hopefully they will do well outside.
