I haven’t slept this much since I was a teenager!
In between visitors, Facebook and lots of lovely messages, for the past week I have been sleeping. On the couch or in my bed.
The TV has been a constant stream of excitement! I watched the the black smoke emerge from the Vatican chimney…and a day later, the white smoke to announce a new Pope.
I have watched the NT Political coup unfold. In true Territory style the mice did play while the cat was away and deposed Chief Minister Terry Mills while he was on a delegation to Japan trying to negotiate multi zillion dollar gas deals. The young guns took over government, Adam Giles as the new Chief Minister and Dave Tollner as the Deputy. A new Australian record was created for the shortest serving Chief Minister (6 months) and a Deputy Chief Minister Willem westra van Holthe for only 7 days.
That knocked the Crocs off the front pages for a few days!
I have become addicted to My Kitchen Rules and watched a plethora of ABC 24, Home Makeovers, Crime Investigation Channel, CNN, BIO and Sky News. Desperate as I may seem, I was not tempted by football or cricket!
I had two areas operated on, 7 cm incision under the arm to remove two lymph nodes and another 8 cm incision to remove the lump from the front centre of by breast.
Nine days later, my breast has evolved through a landscape of colours that Van Gogh would have been proud of. Every shade of blue, purple and yellow that is now almost back to a normal human pasty white.
But alas the pasty white is is not going to last for very long!
As they say – A day in politics feels like a lifetime, and a week in politics can seem like eternity.
The world has a new Pope, the Northern Territory has a new Chief Minister and Australia has a new Parlimentary Cabinet after a Federal Government Spill saw the Prime Minister, whose challenger did not challenge, maintain her seat but seven senior ministers had a dummy spit and resigned from their Ministry’s.
One operation and a week on the couch has seen many lives changed forever, including mine.
FACE BOOK – DAY 3
Endless cups of tea getting a bit boring! Even worse when I discovered, after a few big mouthfuls, that the milk was off this morning and I am home alone and not allowed to drive.
Black tea is good, however that bottle of champagne looking very tempting! !
