It’s another rainy old day today and Robin has been out and about attending to a few chores. Top of the list was to renew his driver’s licence, a requirement as his 65th birthday is fast approaching. As he wants to retain his heavy trade licence, he had to visit the doctor recently to obtain a medical certificate. Then he joined the queue at the AA and waited in line. After handing over the fee of $45 he is now legal to drive for the next 10 years. His licence covers him to drive a car, truck or passenger bus, and most important of all, to tow our caravan.
Then he went off to his first of several physio appointments. A fall on his arm a month or so ago has left him with limited movement in his right shoulder. Luckily the bulk of the payment for the sessions are covered by ACC (Accident Compensation Corporation) although he still has to find the balance of $20 per session. As everyone knows, physio treatments can be long drawn out affairs.
While I’ve been home alone, I’ve been busy in the kitchen preparing some tasty pumpkin soup. Just the right sort of fare for a rainy day lunch. Then it was a matter of “hubble, bubble, toil and trouble” as I looked through the steam into my big pan and stirred a batch of kiwifruit jam boiling on the stove top
Another job has been printing out the blog posts of our recent South Island holiday. I can see that will take quite a while, or perhaps a “work in progress” will be a better description. During our three month long trip we produced about 120 blogs. So far we have just printed those for the month of February, and our colour printer has run out of ink. This is going to be an expensive job, but worth it in the end when we get the pages spiral bound.
The rain is still coming down so I think it’s time to put our feet up for the rest of the afternoon. Perhaps we’ll have a cuppa and catch up with the Olympic games on telly.
