At the Train

Catch up

Well another busy week has just flown by. I have been working long and hard on a tender and the coffee shop. I can't wait for the school holidays to begin! At least then we don't have to drive all over town. The other day I spent 3 hours in the car just picking up and dropping off. VERY tiring! I haven't had any seizures, although today I did have a bit of an eye flicker thing and had to lay down.

It is my birthday tomorrow - wow another year! I will say that with all I have been though I feel like I have aged enormously! 34 doesn't sound that old - but I feel it.

The coffee shop is moving well, my worry is that it will not be fast enough for our opening on the 15th. I am having a birthday / pre-opening get together on the 13th December. It will be an alfresco lunch @R40 per head, kids free. This is really just to test our POS and systems. Unfortunately I know that this time of year many people are away. If you are in town, pop in, just send me an email so that I can make sure of the numbers.

It is always scary embarking on an adventure like this one. I particularly have a fear of failure. BUT I managed to beat a lot last year so I am hoping and praying 2010 will be the same!
Luv d:)

Our coffee shop progress

Well life is busy here getting the coffee shop ready! I have been helping on a tender and generally running around. I need to fill in a blog entry at least once a week! It is actually amazing how much we miss in our lives (especially when your memory has been shot!) I am always surprised when I go back and look at entries. (I suggest we all do it) It makes our lives feel both full and short!

This week I found out that someone I had worked closely with a few years back, husband died of a brain tumour! It was a shock and a reality check - I am so lucky for all the prayers and support during a difficult time. I have to say it, I am grateful that I got through this.

Leo went for his op on his teeth - and didn't cry once! I was so relieved. I have become totally paranoid when it comes to hospitals. He had a sleeping tablet before and was like a drunk wondering around! It was quite funny to watch. He insisted he could draw but could barely keep his eyes open!

Here is a pic of the inside of the coffee shop (my brother Paul in the pic)

Not much news

This past week has been really busy trying to sort out the coffee shop, kids, work etc. It is quite alot on my plate and to add to my woes, Leo had toothache and hasn't been sleeping well. He is going to have some fillings and 2 extractions next week. They will sedate him. Unfortunately he doesn't have strong teeth - something he gets from his mother! He has a young female dentist - who was really wonderful with him.

I have to go for a filling / root treatment sometime. I was told during chemo I couldn't have work done on my teeth?? Anyhow it is long overdue. I wish I could be sedated. I am petrified of the dentist! Spent too many hours there as a child. I will see how long I can hold off for!

We have been testing eats from suppliers for the coffee shop- I can feel it on my hips already!

The flu comes and goes ... very annoying! I need to try build up my strength! Its 9am and ready to go back to bed!...
