The wisdom of tweens…..

Having 3 of our 5 grandchildren here for the holidays and beyond – is a good thing at this time.
Today, arriving home at lunch time after a visit to hubby in hospital, I prepare lunch for them.  Eldest girl says “what are you going to eat Nanny?”  I said “Same as you only no bread”  She says “well then why don’t you make a sandwich out of the lettuce and put the roast pork and apple sauce in that”

I had completely forgotten about the most basic and simple thing I could do for a quick sambo!!

Remember I said we would use Australian SLANG – this is not a racist comment and the last time I will apologise for using Aussie slang. Just remember – if you are reading this in any other country than Australia;  sambo = sandwich.

Thank you darling girl.    Sometimes it’s easy to forget the ‘basic’ stuff and get caught up in the “I must prepare everything” mode.

Outback delays….

So on my page – 12 months in the Outback I started with “our lives are never dull”.  How prophetic!!

On Easter Sunday my husband fell 4 metres (14 feet)   and badly broke his leg. I’ll spare you the details but include  photos at the end.  Look if you dare.
This means – at this point – that our plans will be delayed for a few weeks.  On the Tuesday after Easter, we were meant to pick up our “new” second hand van, but I had to put this on hold as well.
Hopefully he will live up to his  previous name – Wolverine – in relation to his healing powers, but I have now rechristened him “Colverine”
Hoping lots of bone broth and good stuff will help the process.  If you have any good healing food for broken bones – please share them with me.


Oh and to top it off – I came out of the hospital with my 3 grandchildren that I am looking after for a few weeks – to find someone had reversed into our new car and smashed the lights and other dents.  😦
