Monday 29th February
It has been a quiet week.
I am slowly reducing my medication, Lyrica 300 Mg twice a day to 75 Mg twice a day. The reduction has not been totally without some form of withdrawal. Therefore a quiet week means I can relax a bit.
Good friends Tony and Dawn arrive from Port MacQuarie. We spend the next few hours catching up with each others lives. They also felt like having a quiet stay so that suited all of us. They stayed for two days before leaving to attend a funeral in Toowoomba.
By Saturday they arrived back and wanting just to have a few quiet days with us. The came with us when we went to Tai Chi on Friday and joined Donnis for a swim at the Labrador lagoon while I flew my kite.
Sunday 6th March
Donnis and I drove to Brisbane to watch grandson Chris play his second game of Rugby League. Chris mum Regelyn and his other grandmother Evangeline also helped cheer on the team.
Actually we all offered quiet dignified support. There is a sign when entering the field which basically states that this is just a game, the children are just children playing a game, there is no wagering, no shouting screaming or abusing. The sports officials are all volunteers. We are all asked to support the teams in a dignified way. Some parents shouted encouragement but it was nice not to see aggressive parents running along the sideline screaming at the children or the referee.
On a footnote Chris team lost.
