Thank you to those who sent me cyber hugs. It was much appreciated!
I have sad news....my dad passed away only a few hours after my last post. Unfortunately we did not get to see him again, but I am happy that I spent the prior weekend with him. It was quick and peaceful in the end.
My mum is still very unwell and will probably require a fair amount of my time. She is in hospital under the care of the mental health unit. There is really nothing I can do to reduce her anxiety and distress, other than to pray. It really is so difficult when someone suffers from mental problems as no amount of logical conversation can make a difference. Hopefully her new medication can bring some relief and we can bring her to Melbourne to be closer to us.
On a more positive note, my sister is back from her cruise around the Caribbean for the cricket world cup. She stopped into New York on her way back and bought me some trims...
I am not sure how much sewing I will get done...still trying to catch up on the washing, shopping, blog reading (a lot can happen in blog land in a week and a bit) and off to work tomorrow.
