I was going to title this post La Vida Normal but the more I've thought about my day today I came to realise it wasn't. There is some degree of normality but on the whole it's been a whole lot of busy-crazy - I feel like I've been running around like a headless chook minus the wing flapping and running into things!
It started early with a call from mum who came home from hospital this morning. All is well - well, as well as can be expected. The cardiologist has confirmed that her heart is fine - nothing wrong there - so now the hunt is on for the cause of her chest pains. She has tests, tests and more tests scheduled over the next couple of weeks, plus an endoscopy and a few more tests (!), which will hopefully determine just what causing her troubles. But her heart is fine and that is some mighty good news!

from the veggie garden. Over the back is a watermelon I
found still kicking in the garden. It survived the re-roofing of
the shed so hats off to it!
I then spent most of my day in the shop pricing stock and rearranging displays in the gear-up for Mother's Day (big day for gift shops - second to xmas). Easterfest is on this weekend which will bring a huge amount of people to town (something like 50,000 from the surrounding districts and as far away as Brisbane and the coast I think the paper was saying). Needless to say, we will be ready for them and try to convince them that right here, right now is a great time to get mum something special! We can only try!
I have also done all my usual chores at home - unfortunately no magical fairy completed them for me! Plus baked two loaves of bread (one -cheese and chive - to take to the neighbours tonight for our first French lesson - oui oui!), picked the veggies that have grown to monster proportions from a couple of days rain, fixed up the chook pen fence which had some pretty big chook-sized holes under which they could have escaped (but they weren't that clever!), pulled weeds out of the garden while the ground is still damp and fed my niece and nephew's guinea pigs (Spotty and Milkshake) that we are pig-sitting while they are away camping for the week. Phew!
I still have a list as long as my arm to complete (a written list is the only way I remember to get things done!) but the chances of anything else getting done today is slim to none! No matter, they'll still be there on the list tomorrow!
Right now though, I'm going to kick back on the lounge for 30 minutes before heading across the road for dinner! Au revoir!
