G'day and WELCOME TO wednesday!
I thought you might enjoy starting your day by seeing a pic of our beautiful Aussie national flora - the Golden WATTLE.
I took this pic on the weekend as we travelled across to Victoria. The wattle was in abundance all along the way and on the side of the roads. For miles and miles, all we could see was the green and gold! Fantastic!
We have sunshine here today and our day went form calm and orderly to begin with, to suddenly having to deal with burst water pipes in the front garden and DD being ordered to bed rest!
Between organising the plumber and dashing over to DD's and ensuring she's ok, the day has suddenly reached the p.m. and other plans out the window!
DH dug up the garden and revealed the broken pipe. Plumber replaced old rotted pipe with new copper piping. We will receive the bill in the mail! :eek: Am dreading that! At least we have water again!
DD's B/P is slightly elevated and pulse rapid. Iron count a bit low. She's plain exhausted, poor girl. Approx 6 weeks to go until delivery and she's still working, full-time! No wonder she's tired! Dr has ordered her off work until next week and to rest. I took her some lunch and had a mother to daughter talk with her about seriously considering ceasing work pronto! She's requested to cut her hours back, so hopefully the company will compromise and agree to her request. Last thing she needs is to go into labour already exhausted! Money, while important and necessary, isn't worth getting sick over! I'll phone tonight to see how she's feeling after a sleep.
Have read the previous days threads/posts. Sending BIG :hug:to those needing same and some moral support and encouragement. Take each day as it comes and hang in there.
Enjoy your wednesday folks and be kind to yourself and each other!
Until later ........ :wavey:
