After an especially intense period at work, we finally made our annual trek to the beach in Osoyoos, BC. Same beach, same hotel, same unit. Boring? Well, my older son thinks so and doesn't come anymore, but the rest of us find the sameness relaxing. Both my husband and I still had to do a … Continue reading Back in My Happy Place

I semi-seriously considered changing my standard email footer to "Sorry this is so late"! This little bit of … Continue reading New Messaging to Colleagues

Mum tried to convince me to keep up with the tidying... never stuck, though. Look at this place! What a tip! What would Mum think? Maybe I do need this … Continue reading The Jacket… Or, Our Guy’s Adventures in Lockdown
Four days, including travel, but we fit a lot into those days together -- not only our primary purpose, but also a couple of meals out, a book, two movies, and a side trip to take a picture I thought Esther would appreciate! The Primary Purpose As I mentioned in my previous post, we went … Continue reading Our Quick Trip
Hope Let's start with the good news, from a personal point of view. I finally had my appointment with the rheumatologist, who said that, even though the X-ray shows severe arthritis, the pain in my hip is likely from trochanteric bursitis and/or tendonitis.
