Today Stew and I are taking the boys to school and kindy, as Steve and Bex have an early morning appointment. 

Then I think we will investigate the possibility of going over to Waiheke Island on the ferry.

 ABOVE: some of the artwork on the hospital walls. I really liked these three. 

ABOVE: Surprisingly... Steve cooked lasagna last night!  He wanted lasagna really bad lol.  It was freaking yum too.

He's feeling so much better. Being home has done him a world of good.

And that's it for now. 
Catch ya later. 

ONWARD..  8.55 am and we have delivered both boys to school and kindy.
Archer did the usual and cried, trying to get out of staying but I didn't give in. 

Griffin used to cry and vomit EVERY SINGLE DAY and I still left him there. He always stop once I'd gone, as I'm sure Archer will too.

We have canceled the Waiheke trip as it's raining and probably will be on and off all day.

We might even head home... then Steve and Bex can have their bed back.

BED. Yeah... they have our old bed and OMG it's more comfy than our current bed!

I think when we get home we will be going bed shopping.

2.15 pm: we are home. 
Done a grocery shop. Now having a very late lunch.

Lunch done.  Visited Brylee at her new work place... which she hates.  She wants to resign, but we keep telling her No!  It's a job and just because it's tough right now, it might get better.

Bought a dozen donuts, cos I was feeling incredibly crabby.  Still am.

Decided not to go bed shopping and run up a debt when it's not necessary.
The whole idea of moving was to drop our expenses... so we will stick with the bed we have until I've saved up to buy a new one.

Finished unpacking.  
Now ... I'm going to relax for a little while before sorting out dinner.  Which will be LATE tonight cos I'm no longer HANGRY (Hungry/Angry). 

8 pm:  Well I just talked with Bex and she said although Steve was feeling awful around midday today, he perked up this afternoon.
So that's a relief.
Now all he has to do it stay home and get better, and stay away from people.  He's now classed as a 'vulnerable person' due to the medications he's on for his Pancolitis and Pancreatitis.

And that's it for today.  I'm gunna sit back and watch Coronation Street in 90 minutes, then go to bed.


  1. Have a safe trip home. Hopefully Steve will get some rest today before the boys get back from kindy & school :-)

    Whoops I meant to say I have to stay out of the sun because of the new ointment I have to put on my eyes. I remember Ken crying everyday at Kindy but fine as soon as i walked out. I expected the same first day alt school but he walked in, sat on the mat and didnt bat an eyelid. The teacher asked him if he wanted to say goodbye to his mum!! Lol

  5. I'm glad he's feeling so much better. Probably wanted some yummy food after the hospital stay!

    Is it possible you could swap the beds back again? Of course, that would depend on whether they find their one more comfortable than your current one. Just a thought. Glad Steve is feeling better and enjoying his food again. Audrey

    Hi good that Steve is doing better. Maybe just buy a bed topper in the meantime? I have a good one from a shop called Pillow Talk...nice and puffy...
