... we have had a bit of a bumpy ride.
It was off to a perfect start when we decided to take a couple of days 'time out'. There is something really nice about just jumping in the car and go and it was SO nice to get away for a bit..
We found a little cabin and spend a few nights in Clare valley, riding our bikes, walking, eating and relaxing before we picked up this little girl...
...Tilly, on the way home. Have you ever tried to keep an 8 week old puppy in a car on an almost 3 hour car trip??? Interesting, but we there..
The idea was go get back to work as soon as we got back. Well, needless to say with this little distraction in the house, getting anything done is rather tricky..
On top of settling our new family member we received the phone call every parent dread in the early hours of Sunday morning - Our youngest son was in hospital following an 'incident' in the city. Most importantly, he will be okay! They never tell you much over the phone so we didn't know that at the time and the hour it took us to get to the hospital seemed like forever...
He had been out with friends and was sitting in the main mall, minding his own business when he was 'coward punched' by some low-life thug (excuse the language, but I have absolutely no patience for this kind of people). From what we have been told, he took a blow to the back of his head and must have landed square on his chin so his jaw is broken clean down the middle. He remembers none of it.
There has been so many cases of young people ending up with permanent brain damage after these kind of cowardly attacks and we are just so grateful and relieved that he has escaped with 'just' a broken jaw and a few gases - it could have been so much worse.
The patient is back home, sore but in one piece and already complaining about the prospect of 6 weeks on soup, soup and more soup... What is is with men and food????
I am just tired following it all and finding getting back into things a bit tricky - but I will get there. Hopefully I will get back to my stitching this week.
