We went out to the Stocklands shopping centre up in Wendouree for a potter around in the shops and a spot of lunch.
We went for coffee in the Old Bluestone Cafe in Buninyong that none of us had ever been in before. It's very cute and our iced chocolates, hot chocolate and carrot muffin were delicious.
Lindsey, Jim and I went out for supplies, a bed pole and a few other bits and pieces and came back with all of that - and a small scooter for Stella. I think she was a bit surprised :-)
We had to wait in all day for someone to come and do a blood test for Stella on Friday. They didn't come, which was frustrating. It was a lovely day and we could have gone out somewhere. Turns out they went to Mount Martha instead. Which was even more frustrating because they had been told she would be with us all week and had successfully managed to come on Wednesday to do it. I think there must have been some muddle in the communications department!
On Saturday we took Stella and Tony to the fortnightly little farmers' market by the lake. It was an absolutely glorious morning and the lakeside was busy and bustling. I think they very much enjoyed the market and the lake.
On Sunday Lindsey drove Stella and Tony back to Mount Martha. Jim and I went too but in a different car. We all met up at the Dava for lunch, then took Stella and Tony back to their place. Lindsey and Jim went back to Mount Helen, leaving me in situ for the week. Some hours later Lindsey rang me. "Where are your car keys?" Well, I assume they're in my backpack, where they should be. But no. They were in Jim's pocket in Mount Helen, leaving a completely redundant car at Mount Martha! I have arranged to borrow Stella and Tony's car on Wednesday to go to work, where Lindsey will deliver my car keys, Stella's walking stick which unaccountably got left behind and various other bits and pieces.
Today we have been to see the GP (who is very pleased with Stella's progress). We have also organised visits from the blood test people (to the right address this time :-D ), a home care package person and made an appointment for a back X-ray. Oh, and we also managed to stop for some lunch and sort out the pharmaceuticals. Not a bad day's work
