THANK YOU TO ALL GOOD WISHES FOR MY DAD..& SOME OTHER STUFF I HAVE BEEN UP TO!!
























































Hello lovely ladies...& THANK you all for the lovely kind sentiments for my dad..

He is a stubborn MAN!! has & is always soo fit...BUT still thinks he is kind of superman at 85 yo after A MAJOR operation..
so last evening his scar/wound....actually OPENED up over his knee!! OMG....I am a TOTAL PANIC merchant...I was just crying..not knowing what to do...& YES from an ex policewoman!! I am pathetic!!! BUT..when IT INVOLVES your gorgeous DAD...i kind of lose it!!! ANYWAY....

LUCKILY...hubby was coming home after 2 weeks away...SO he took dad into the emergency at EPWORTH hospital... they fixed it up...& TOLD HIM NOT TO DO TOO MUCH exercise...
My dad is an exercise GURU...swims all the BAY swims here in Melbourne..HE is a fitness fanaTIC...SOO finally..he has realised...SLOW DOWN!!

SOO sorry about being a bit slack re leaving messages on blogs...I am getting around to it...

But with dad home...not venturing too far out/away...doing stuff...so i go from one end of the house to the other....cleaning & checking that dad is okay...

JEE wiZ..I MAY LOSE SOME KILOS!!
ANYWAY....FINALLY GETTING AROUND TO CLEANING UP THE ROOM NEXT TO MY EBAY ROOM..

I have been working on it most of this arvo..shifting boxes..changing the bed around...
& ARRANGING THE white vintage frames I have painted white...with ALPHABET letters in between etc...??
To be honest..just trying to fill a VOID in the room....next to a little table...where I have placed my lovely VINTAGE TIN HATBOX hubby bought for me some 100 yrs ago..!! WELL NOT QUITE THAT LONG AGO...
Anyway...mixing bits & bobs...trying to make this room look a little bit more respectable from the horrible shabby crappy room I had made it into!!
AND as per usual..photos are all out of sequence...I GIVE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
anyway...\.......................

ps...dad is NOW JUST tucked up in bed..with his hot water bottle...reading his SCIENCE book after devouring a GOOD PORTERHOUSE...cooked to perfection by hubby!!
xxx everyone...appreciate your comments.. andrea

Hi Andrea
Don't talk to me about photo sequence...grrrr. I have come up with a motto that I think works. "The first shall be last and the last shall be first". A verse from the Bible I think,lol.
I love white frames and I love letters, so to see them together, especially on that green wall, just stunning, good job!
Hope your dad takes it a bit easy.

Hi Andrea,
Sounds like you Dad is well and truly on the mend. You may have to tie him down.

Gosh, you have sooo much stuff. I really like the frames against the wall. Hm, imagine the paintings I could add to them.
Hugs,
Anna

Hey Andrea what is it about Dads that they don't seem to know when to slow down a little, my Dad is the same & although his Op HAS actually slowed him down a lot he is now very agitated because he cannot do as much grrrr... Hey girl love the frames on your green wall great idea there & as for all the *stuff* in that room well good grief how do you keep track of it all oh before I forget that rose picture in the first photo is simply stunning....

Have a great day Hun

Hi Andrea, sounds like your Dad is recovering really well. Now he realises he needs to slow down a bit he should do ok. Once he is healed he will be out there doing all his swims again
