a diamond in the rough

The past week has been  rough one. Izzy came home from the weekend away with her Dad with gastro last Sunday and had Monday off school.

I was feeling better with my flu, the cough is still hanging around though.

Thursday I spent a wonderful day on a kindy excursion to Mount Gambier with Summer. It was also my 44th birthday. Like magic, or a diamond amongst the rough, it was most definitely the bestest day of my week. I realise now that Karma must have been smiling at me.

I stopped on the way home to shoot one of my favourite scenes on the drive back home from the Mount, just past the 'Welcome to the Wattle Range Council' sign. It is a picturesque welcome and one I have driven past too many times thinking I should have stopped to take a photo.

Friday I came down with Izzys gastro, it knocked me for six. It was only a 24 hour deal, but I felt like death. I barely moved off the couch, it's a good thing Summer is good at entertaining herself.

Sunday was a good day. I got out in the garden, planting and using some of the stuff I bought with my Bunnings voucher on Thursday, finally.

I am so looking forward to a healthier week, as long as no one else, or me, comes down with anything else! Touch wood!

  2. Oh such a mixed week for you but oh so glad you are better now. I think early Spring seems to bring more illness than any other time. I am not sure when your school hols are, but NSW stops at the end of this week and Vic and Qld are already on hols. May your week ahead be wonderful. The little vid of pics is cool!

    1. School breaks up on the 30th for us. I am looking forward to it, hopefully the weather will have warmed up a bit by then and the rain has decided to bugger off!

  3. We too had the gastro. Not fun, though I did manage to skip catching it. For some reason your image is not showing for me.

  8. Yikes - I hope you and Izzy are feeling much better?! It's been through our school too.... although my class seemed to survive better than most and I got through nearly unscathed! September holidays are upon us in Victoria and I have an extra week of long service leave off, so I'm feeling pretty lucky!('Touch wood' as my Mum would say).

  9. Oh no, I hope that nasty bug has left your house! It is hard enough getting through the day while 100% healthy sometimes! Happy Belated 44th birthday!
