..... making fun of going to the doctors...

Mum had a Doctors visit due last week....
She took this opportunity to debut her walker in public....





I was so pleased to see Mum getting around more comfortably.... no hand bag to carry and no leaning on her walking stick...and she was able to sit while we waited for the very slow lift in our shopping centre... great..


We celebrated by going to our local catholic Club for lunch and for Mum to have some time on the poker machines....
This is one of Mum's favourite pastimes.... and  now we may be able to take her more often, the club is about 5 minutes drive from out place.....

 This is a beautiful New Zealand Christmas Bell taken in Merle's garden the other day.....I love them...
... and my baby checking out an ant.......





Our family Christmas Party is on the 16th of this month at my place...so I'm getting ready .....






update next post...

Hugs and Blessings

  2. Thanks River....

    i loved that she tried it an was not nearly as tired the next dayas she used to be just using the walking stick....
    With having our big party early we are all able to have a quiet Christmas at home. This way my kids can enjoy their kids/grandkids on Christmas Day... and relax.......

    1. Thanks Stephanie... we have a Kris Kringle at out party so every adult gets one present and the little ones get two presents...our family has grown so big we had to put limits on presents.....and this way each Mum and Dad can give their own kids whatever they want on Christmas Day and no one feels jealous or left out...

  4. Hello Barb....Oh, so happy your Mum is getting out and about. She's quite a gal.

    And that flower is so unique and exotic!
