I have not had much time to blog the past few days, we’ve had visitors, 2 whole lambs (slaughtered and delivered) to pack and freeze, meetings to attend, puppy to clean up after, and then there’s the patient…
Yesterday afternoon OH had to visit the surgeon for a check up. When the surgeon saw that OH was not wearing the moonboots but a modified pair of sandals he was most unimpressed. However it turns out that the moonboots OH was given weremuch too big for him and this was contributing to the pain he experienced when he put them on. A smaller pair was sourced and he is much happier and taking the odd walk around the house with the aid of his crutches instead of rolling around on an office chair.
It was great to have OH join me in the family room to watch TV last evening, I just have to make sure that he does not overdo things.
Another thing that has kept me busy is the arrival of
our my new car. I drove the same vehicle from new for 16 years and it was time for a replacement. It is a Hyundai i30 Automatic and it is just the bees knees. It’s basically a computer on wheels, it has bluetooth and all sorts of modes for media and phones.The engine is so quiet you can’t hear it running when the car is stationary. My cell phone is now paired with my car and I can answer calls by just pushing a button on the steering wheel. All my phone contacts are now also backed up to my car – how cool is that! The radio controls are also on the steering wheel, as is cruise control and different steering modes – normal, comfort and sport! I’m sorry if all this is old hat to many of you, but all this new technology just blows me away. It is the first time I have had an automatic vehicle and I just love it.
I’m pretty sure that this will be the last new vehicle that we will purchase so it’s got to last us two old farts well into retirement. Needless to say IT geek son is well impressed!
Hope all you Cape bloggers keep warm and dry and take care driving home this evening. Just heard some thunder overhead.
