I Love Skype

Late last night I heard my little red laptop start ringing to me - I wondered who is calling me on Skype, it's usually Rachel (daughter) but she is in Thailand. So I answered and low and behold it was my beautiful girl calling me from Phuket. It was not only so good to talk to her but also to see her. Rach and Luke have only been gone 4 days and we have to chat already - as you can tell we are very close, plus she wanted to check how her Papa is doing.

Today the hospital bed that palliative care arranged arrived, with a wiz bang air mattress. Dad looks so comfy curled up in this new bed, he says it's wonderful. I am really glad they suggested it, his old bed was a good mattress but this is so much more comfortable for him.

Now for my "Davine Time" update for today. I am so lucky to have my partner Shane around, it makes it easier for me to have an hour away on my own now and then. So today I took myself of to Spotlight. For my non Aussie friends, Spotlight is a large craft store that sells all sorts of stuff. They are having there sales now so I got myself a couple of house things. But the real me time was spent in the store next door. I don't even know the name of the shop but to my delight they sell Buddhas. So just to add to my collection I bought these two. As I have mentioned previously, the reason my blog is named "53 Buddhas and Me" is because back then I had 53 Buddhas in my collection. I will really have to do recount, as I have accumulated a few more in the past 12 months.

I am so pleased that some of my lovely blog friends have been inspired by my "Davine Time". It is so important to look after ourselves, not only health wise by in every aspect. After all we are the most important person in our lives, without ourself we have nothing. Remember above all make it "FUN".
