I will be heading down to Sydney tomorrow to visit my daughter, Natalie whose baby is due on Tuesday.
Natalie April 2010
She went to the doctors yesterday and if the baby hasn't arrived by the weekend after this, he will induce. She rang me today and asked for me to come down as she has had a 'show' so here's hoping it will not be long now.

Finally got out into the backyard today, two full bins will be put out tonight for garden/garbage collection. Later in the afternoon youngest son turned up to collect some of his clutter to take to his flat. Yay.

He will be back tomorrow to collect my last single bed and mattress + bedding plus stuff he left in the garage. So who said down-sizing is hard.

I should be out in the yard - doing something
or tidying up the clutter inside
but I couldn't be bothered... feeling very lazy today.
Darcy has taken over my reading lap-table. (!)
So naturally I can't disturb him so
I'm reduced to watching the telly.
Criminal Intent, Bones, CSI-LA - Miami
or a little N3mbers will do.

Change is inevitable.
The Dynamic Duo will be missed
and as Vincent D'onofrio sheds his 'Robert Goren' persona he will take on new and interesting roles in the
film industry to the delight of his fans.

A special thanks to Val of Life and Vincent blog

Ok, I have started on the tummy medication ...

BUT I cannot have any alcohol at all and today is the start of the 4 day Easter weekend. I'm not going to miss the alcohol as I rarely drink nowadays except laterly to ease the cramps in my stomach but as I will be spending time catching up with friends, it is going to be a little hard to sit there while everyone else is having a merry time
