I am getting all excited for you, Denise.  That is very quick work.  A couple of my cousins have kit houses and they are great.

Robyn, you are on for coffee ... in fact, if I can get away long enough, there is a Messina just down the road if you prefer good ice cream over coffee!  Keep in touch ...

Thatís great Denise and being able to sit back in the caravan and watch it all taking shape would be great - a little noisy at times but still a great experience. I hope Chance can cope with the noise factor.

Iíll look forward to your photos Denise.

KAtie, the weeds have to go, anything to keep snakes far away.

Vacuumed and washed floors this morning. An early start for the week.

We Worked all Sunday in the garden  , vegie bed now clear of stinging nettles , loads to the burn pile . DS mowed with the hand mower around the trees . We just kept going , love this weather but it did get hot . Lots of water breaks . DS was rewarded for all that he did .
Today I did an epic drive and managed to go to our quilting group have a hair cut , visit shop with DD to see if they can fix her lap top ( it was fine when there ! ) . Droppped a parcel off for a friendís DD in Ballarat . On my way to be with DM for a few days .

You have certainly been busy KAtie.

I havenít done much today. Cleaned our bathroom and done a bit of washing. I rang a friend (I have been bad and neglected her😢😢). When she answered she said she would call me back as she was in a meeting with her doctor.  I wish she had turned her phone off, I felt quite embarrassed.

I wouldn't feel embarassed, Cookie, it is not your fault if she chose to answer her phone during a consultation, she could have ignored it but, you are right, she should have turned her phone off before going in to the surgery.  Phone etiquette, or lack of it, is one of my bug-bears!!

Thanks Marina. My DH has only just learned to text as DD gave him an old iPhone. He can use that because he can use his ipad. He is always texting now. :D
I did the food shopping this morning and went up to my little Italian deli. I haven't been for ages. Their fruit and veggies are so much better than anywhere else. I must get back into the habit of going.

I have my phone on silent all the time . Caught out to many times before , now if I am waiting for an important call I turn it on , but you always feel the vibe in your pocket .
With DM at the moment, her days are frustrating for her , grazing on liquid food all day but today is her last day of treatment so then she will be able to have normal meal times , space it out more . It is exhausting for her and the day just disappears . Both DRs are pleased with her amazed she is not in hospital. Last radiation today and they are having cupcakes , pink in support of breast cancer . The team are amazing there and in the infusion treatment, chemo , area. Really lucky to have the most advanced radiation technology and Drs in one building . The radiation machine is huge quite increadable to see .

That's a big step forward in her treatment Katie.  I am sure she will enjoy her first 'real' meal!

I'm pleased that the doctors are happy with your Mum. Good on her. I'm sure she will enjoy her cupcake.

Thank you all for your kind words . No cupcake for DM but everyone was allowed to help them selves to a take home bag , so mum did that for GKids ! liquid diet for DM only . She takes an hour to drink a glass of smoothie full of protein replacement.
Bonus last night I got to go to my old school  function , caught up with old friends, fact that it was outside and inclement weather we all managed to stay and enjoy . Homeward bound today .

Moved into our new apartment yesterday, it is so different here now to what it was before we undertook the build and I know we will love it.
