How life changes
« on: January 16, 2019, 03:47:33 PM »
With Penny needing an operation and will be out off work for 2 months our plans were to head to Darwin and we ready to do that but one phone call from my sister has us heading to Wollongong NSW to live with my parents for a few months. They are not well and both my sister and brother have been running them around to doctors etc

So we decided to assist where we can and help out as their health has declined dramatically and with their 60th wedding anniversary tomorrow, time is not on their side.

It will help penny recuperate and we will then decide on our next move later.

I hope my room still has all my surfing pics tapped on the wall  ;D

Mark  I hope everything goes well with your Mum and Dad, on the upside being near the ocean will surely help Penny's recovery.

Mate I hope all goes well with Penny and she recovers quickly.
Plans change, but not always a bad thing. Life has a funny way of working out.
Spending time with your folks could be a good thing for all.

Best of luck with it all, and if you need a break, my property is yours anytime.

Good Luck and Safe Travels McGirr.

That's why you have kids isn't it, so they can look after you later on.
Hope it works out well.
