Grind n Bind – The Home Stretch

Posted: July 22, 2022 in Uncategorized

As in, I’ve stretched it out long enough she wants me to go home 🤓

It’s a fluid situation at present . Current plan is to head home to Maryhole on Wednesday August 3rd. Fair to say recovery not proceeding as quickly as hoped (or informed by surgeon!) but all things still on track. Increasing weight bearing slowly but surely but still require two crutches to get around. Any thoughts of single crutch or walking stick are kidding themselves. Maybe my balance is crap 🤔 On the good news front wound is clean but still enough of a scar to attract da ladies 🕺🏻

This week was planned to be a busy week culminating with annual Xmas in July eatery drinkery caper at TB @ Yabba Dabba Do near Canungra. Some notable omissions already sadly with RJER headed off on a 6 month caravan odyssey across Australia starting this week. Then just this last weekend there has been an illness in the Della clan that could cancel the whole event . ‘Twas only 12 months ago we were eating/drinking on Saturday morning at said celebration when Beaverhausen, A closed borders and we had to leave Yabba Dabba Do that afternoon 😢 We also have booked a Long Lunch as a Primer with Turkey Flat Winery at Port Office on Friday with AD. So, at this stage this week could be very busy or more of the same😏 Stay tuned

Also been a busy few days planning our African Safari for next March. Devoted followers may recall we have been trying for this since 2020 and literally got within a day of flying out. Not a lot of planning needed now for this then but an opportunity to tack on a week in France afterwards is now on the table. John and Lorraine will be in Europe for 3 months starting February next year and more importantly in rural France starting a few days after our Safari ends. Too good an opportunity to pass up we have been trying to work out flights that connected but is your basic nightmare. So we went for two separate bookings and will fly Emirates from Johannesburg to Lyon and back before returning to Australia on Qantas on a separate booking.

Workmen have all gone now and the finished landscaping does indeed look a treat and just in time for next rain bomb ! We got 200 mm over a couple of days but before that twas the usual glorious winter weather

The glorious weather has returned for the week. Time to start working on the tan again although will there be dipping of toe in water ? Of course – Queenslander ! It’s cool certainly but body adjusts quickly in this weather. Will come back and dive for my testicles tomorrow 🤓

As promised did return the next day and went full immersion. It was cool but glorious at the same time. No testicles found but a new occupant in the area had a grin on her face so suspect I know where they are . Again 🕺🏻

Certainly cleared the mind and as luck would have it Qantas were having an international flight sale. This means airfares now are only about 20% above pre COVID prices😏. All flights for Africa/ France now booked so can start thinking a bit about What Happens in Vegas coming up in October .

8 weeks have rolled around now and so off to Physio again to add to his Super. All things are going as he expected if not the surgeon 😏 Given how much was shaved off the right side some pain there is to be expected when weight bearing. The moonboot is required for another 2 weeks but at least now can use one crutch which leaves one hand free . At last 🤓 Just have to be careful now that I don’t become too independent and cause CLP to lose the reason to live .

The weekends plans are up to about Plan H at this stage but we head off on Friday morning for Brisvegas and a looooong lunch at Port Office before continuing on for the 2 night package at Yabba Dabba Doo and a loooooong drink . The home stretch has stretched out rather a long way so will pull up stumps here as could be a fair amount of shenanigans over the next few days to report on and wouldn’t want to detract from that appeal with the half naked images of La Bod attached in this report . So as we say in cheese-eating surrender monkey region of the world it’s Au Revoir from him .
