Well, I'm back on deck albeit somewhat tired and still coughing. I'm taking Italybound & Acc_Chef's suggestions and have made an appointment with a TCM practitioner. Hopefully that will help.
Now, the wonderful visitor that we have is my grandfather. He went on his first plane flight in 30 years to come across to Perth and he seems to be having a great time. He went on a replica tram tour yesterday and last night could barely keep his eyes open. The tour took him through Perth, then he boarded a boat to go to Fremantle and got to go through the Maritime museum. We'd booked him in for lunch at a hotel and luckily some of the other people on the tour invited him to sit with them. He apparently had a smorgasboard lunch and quite They went for a tour around Freo ports etc before coming back for an afternoon cruise to Perth. He was so excited last night. On Monday he took himself for a roughly 5km walk all by himself in completely unfamiliar area. I freaked when I heard at first, but now I'm thankful that he stayed safe and managed to find his way home.
It is fantastic having him over here. I've really missed my grandparents and have been worried that they weren't getting out as much. Pa's taken us moving quite hard, so he's enjoyed just spending time over here. He's looking forward to going on a few more tours while we're at work and we're scheduling in rest days where he stays home and plays with our boys (or "his dogs" as he refers to Omen & Anoki). My grandmother stayed at their place in Queensland but their neighbours have been fantastic checking on her and we call twice a day to check that she's doing ok.
Other than that, not too much is happening in our neck of the woods. My garden is looking a bit neglected so this weekend we'll spend a bit of time out there and replant a couple of beds that are finished. We're hoping to take Pa to Rottnest on the weekend if the weather's ok otherwise it could be a trip to New Norcia.
