Who wants "boring" anyway?

Remember when I said that I wanted August to be quiet and a bit boring after July being so absolutely FULL ON! and guess what? naah, not going to Sorry I was not able to post my normal Friday funky fibre update on ...Friday...but something popped up....

actually I woke Paul in the middle of the night to ask him to take me for a Maroondah Hospital Emergency....yep, who wouldn't want a bit of a fun drive in the middle of a very windy gailforce night eh? With heavy rain pouring down he managed to dodge one tree that didn't want to hold on to dear life and fell over in front of us...Paul got out and cleared the road, only to have the same thing happen about 5km further up! and all the while I was clinging to the car (I bet there are still fingernail marks on the dashboard...not because of the trees but just because I felt I had to squeeze something very hard in order to not feel the excrutiating pain in my tummy (I suspected an apendicitis you see)....Anyway, we arrived about an hour later (that is how long it takes for us to get to the nearest hospital, got triaged) and ..........waited.........and waited for 4 hours! I wonder why it is called EMERGENCY to tell you the truth.....but hey , that is another story. I spent the whole day at the hospital in the end to get tested and screened and poked at and ...waited....waited...and .....yes you guessed it......waited, only to have a doc finally come up to me saying that the tests were all ok (meaning no apendicitis apart from "something ovarian so go see a doctor"....) and me and my pain could go home....I slept for about 13hours and the good news is..I can stand up straightish and yes, I am going to see a specialist. I want to thank you all (you know who you are! but especially Mandie!!!!!) for all your help, good wishes and virtual hugs! They made me feel a lot better !!!

The baby bunnies are all doing extremely well. They are now living in new big living quarters with lots around them to look at and I hope they are all going to be ready to go for a little drive to the yarra Junction library on wednesday the 12th of August. No, I am not teaching them how to read young...but it's for my Bunny and fibre talk on Wednesday the 12th at 2pm. There are going to be bunnies, fibre and yarn and lots of photos and talking about bunnies, organic care of angoras, grooming and nutrition and ofcourse what to do with the fibre and how.
