|Not an elegant photo - but one worthwhile putting in my blog - because it is how I spend the two days of chemotherapy - attached to a yucky pump - asleep, writing, or reading.|
This week, we had our niece Alana and our nephew Dean come up from Canberra to spend some time with us. They arrived on Saturday evening 4th. Sunday we all went to see the Disney animated movie Frozen - a wonderful, uplifting movie. Tuesday 7th, it was a family treat - 10 of us (including Granny and Grandad - off to the movies to see The Hobbit - Desolation of Smaug - another great movie.
We have enjoyed some beautiful weather and a chance to swim together, play games, watch some TV shows and share lots of talking and laughter.

Today I have cleaned my house - I have treated myself to a new vacuum cleaner, mine was only 10 years old, but it has been overworked over the past years, cleaning up renovation dust. My new cleaner is fantastic, it has power, gadgets and I love the fact that I enjoyed the 2 hour chore of cleaning house. It was a blessing in so many ways.
The first is that I have a house to clean. The second is that I have people and pets in my life that have made a mess in it worth cleaning. The third is that I can afford a wonderful new cleaner with which to clean my house and the fourth is that today I have the energy to clean - I am well enough.
My life is blessed and I am going to count every blessing, big and small.
