things have been a little crazy around here...... again...... perhaps I just have to come to terms with crazy being my "normal"! Anyhoo ..... Another trip up to Brisbane, this time the plan was to help Dad move into a little unit in Wynnum on the Bayside . With an early morning flight booked, Hubby made the wonderful suggestion that Dad and I should go down the night before and stay in a motel close to the airport - what a blessing that turned out to be!! And even better yet, Stace was able to drive over to see us at the motel for a bit !

So Dad is settling back into his place after his month long recovery holiday down here with us. And, instead of packing and moving, we took some time to go down to the bay one day and enjoy some down time while we got our heads back into current reality and did the whole "where to from now". We planted Scarlet Runner Beans at his unit and did a bit of a rearrangement of stuff and made plans for him to come down for another visit in a few months instead.
Thankfully, he is in much better health than when I had to go and collect him after discharge from the hospital, so that is a big positive!! He had such a lovely time down here (apart from feeling the cold), absolutely loved the garden (his favourites were these scarlet colored roses and the purple poppies), and sitting out on our front veranda watching everything going on
..... he and Scruffy became quite good friends, and Scruffy has been missing having his friend with him all day, especially when everyone is at work. It's been nice to have these weeks with Dad and talk of things long since past, as well as him get to know how our daily life tends to click on by.
