Home sweet home

Things are pretty much back to normal at our house. We arrived home Saturday evening.
Cody had his hunting mates in residence, so nothing new there.
Aimee headed away to Dunedin Sunday afternoon with her school soccer team and tonight we picked up Camden who returned on the charter bus from Cromwell.
Our dogs are very happy to have us back, and we are happy to be back home.
Andrew has had his warrant of fitness, everything turned out to be well with his kidneys, his problems were being caused by bladder spasms by all accounts and the doctors have taken him off one drug and replaced it with three others! LOL!! The lovely ladies in Uro have me up to speed on doing 'bladder washouts'. And guess of the nurses told me she reads my blog!! How amazing is that... goes to show it is important when blogging to say only good things about people :-)
Now I hate photos of me, but I'm going to be brave and share one anyway!
Aimee arrived on the Knight Rider bus at 2.45am Friday morning.
Here is Andrew off to the fish and chip shop, this was the first time since his accident that he had acutely gone inside a fish and chip shop ..the doors in Oamaru are not wide enough !
The little unit behind him is where we stayed on the hospital grounds..
Thanks so much to everyone for the well wishes and kind thoughts.
Tomorrow I have some crafty stuff to show you.

I'm glad you're safe and sound. Sometimes is leaving a comment all we can do for you. And the crafty stuff can wait if something important has to be done!

Here is my finished latest painting

Here is my finished latest painting
This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
