The year, so far, has been a one-foot-after-the-other, one-day-after-the-other kind of time in our lives. Some days are diamonds, some days are stone and some have quarry face written all over them ...

Some of the 'ordinary' is simply due to the continuation of the rain, Lucy's illness & work commitments.

I guess we have to have these 'ordinary times', just like the Catholic Church has them. They make the special times seem extra special.

Having talked of ordinary times though, I'm happy to report that this week has a few red letter events happening:

Monday (yesterday) was the start of my academic year, so my head is now back into the books etc. Also, the MOTH & I had dinner at Indooroopilly Pig & Whistle with crown and cadet princesses and the crown princess's consort (LOL ... I wonder what Duncan thinks about that title). It was like a last hurrah for the cadet princess.

Tuesday (today) the cadet princess is leaving on a jet plane (can you hear the music that goes with?) heading to Townsville. She was booked on the train but the flooding in central Queensland means that the train cannot get through. We've used frequent flyer points to get her a business class seat because the baggage allowance is very generous (three 30kg suitcases). She's heading back to where she spent her childhood, so she's taking most of her 'stuff' with her.

Wednesday is a work day. I have three a week, these days. It means that I will go to beading class on Saturday morning.

On Thursday, the packing boxes arrive. We are packing away the books in our library so that we can paint & tile. This use of boxes is not extravagant! Having renovated the kitchen, we have learned a lot about 'order' versus 'chaos'. LOL

and Friday is "Phantom of the Opera"! Woo hoo.

The best red letter of the week is that this is a week when the MOTH is working in Brisbane all week (Big smile on my part).

I hope you have some Red Letter Days or events happening in your life too.

Happiness & laughter always,
