Goodbye for a short while

I leave tomorrow to go to Buderim to have surgery to replace my left knee, so I will be out of action for a while.  Hopefully I shall only be in hospital for about 5 - 6 days, then my sister and I can look after each other.  She is in hospital at present, having been admitted in an emergency last Saturday in extreme pain.  However she had keyhole surgery yesterday to repair her diaphragm and should be home by Tuesday. Nothing like a drama or two to liven up the day!

We have continued to have beautiful weather up here for the past week, cool nights and warm sunny days - quite amazing as it is school holiday time.  They have another week to run and there is a change forecast for the coming week, so that will test a few Mums.  Unfortunately, the weather in Southern Queensland has not been nearly as pleasant, with overcast days and showers!

I will take my camera with me so hopefully I shall have a chance to take some good photos to show you when I return.  I may be able to post without photos while I am away - it will depend on how much pain I have sitting in a straight backed chair at the computer.  I know last time I found that very difficult, much to my disgust as I had great plans for doing all sorts of textiley stuff.  I am not taking anything with me this time - but I can always use some of my sister's stash if I feel like it!

I will post again in a couple of weeks.  Cheers


  1. Best wishes for your surgery and recovery, Robin. I hope it all goes well.

  2. I hope the op goes well and that you make a good recovery. You'll be glad to get it over and done with. Hope your sister is OK too and that you won't get too bored before you can be up and about again. Best wishes.

  3. I hope that everything goes well for you and that you are back up and running quickly. Hope your sister goes on OK too.

  4. Best Wishes for the surgery and the recovery. xx

  5. Hoping your surgery goes well, and you're recovered in no time! Best wishes for your sister, too. Take care of each other.
