A little peace

Im very sore and a little tired of things at moment,the push to get school ready for the 40th Celebrations has done t,I think,waiting for diagnosis ,that Ive either torn something in my left shoulder right on the tip or it a rotor cuff thingy,thanks to Google search of symptoms,I medicating myself with a Brufen one at the beginning of the day an done just before bed so i can cope,two panadols in between and with,getting dressed is an evil chore,sudden moves are a shock,Im missing the gardening at home,the lawn is encroaching my vegie patch etc,a little a day Im hoping to keep level.
 Went to docs in Kalgoorlie,the walk in one and the Dr after a quick precursery check on how much movement I have etc,issued a request for ultrasound,on worst shoulder even tough both are sore but didnt give me any idea of treatment as such or how to handle things so going on what Ive gleaned Ive put myself on light duties where I can,my assistant has been snaffled to drive school bus to the Albany thing for Anzacs so good in a way I can poke around and keep going that way. He didnt even give me medication for pain so again Im working that out too,the pain is excruciating sometimes. The ultrsound at hospital was like two months away and although free I cant stand the pain anymore so coughing up the un refundable $180 at the private run clinic,looks like noodles for a week...
Im still plugging along with essay down to 400 odd words to go,Id be done if I didnt keep going back and rewriting sections,lol and where I can, am still playing in Journal,see??
my Blue cow
and of course our sunset was so pretty last week
My youngest is off camping with a school friend this weekend,Im a little freaked as he is my baby and I ve rarely let him out of my sight,hes and his older brother are the only ones of the boys not to have hit the drinking scene as early teens (he does like half a glass f my expensive Cienna though) and of course been exposed to worst,at least his friends should be cool,their lawyer parents Im trusting to be capable of caring for them out bush, I gave him the once for this morning before he left for school on the bus,please dont run around in bush without torch as snakes are really making their presence known this year with several people being bitten,I even packed a big bottle of water in his duffle bag,lol along with some lollies and chips and enough clothes for a big weekend and also cologne....hes nearly 16 .....
Alas I must go,I have a meeting with an egg sambo then back to essay while quiet.

more creativity

Im enjoying the few minutes here and there to add to the Journal,it makes me feel good,Im not fifnished yet but wil continue to work on it during the day as I write this essay,im about a third through and after a long horrendous week,I should be able to get most of the rough doen today
It doesnt have to make sense either,just color and line and freedom to escape.
We had a horrendous accident this last weekend, a young family done for ever,it happened on the road between here and Kalgoorlie,late evening after a massive storm,we got 167 points in the old scale here in Kambalda itself so the roads would been a danger on their own. This week has been an ongoing one of grief counselling for staff and students,the rush of specialists on Monday was fast and efficient,I stayed clear as soon as Id worked out what was going on,I knew the family as such but not closely,the whole community have rallied to form fund raising and help.It takes tragedy to draw people together unfortunately ,but to see the parents almost chase the news reporters away from the front of the school are awe inspiring. These reporters were over heard laughing and joking about the whole thing and "this Hole" while flying out from Kal,I hope they never come back on assignment again
On the good side the rain has brought green and a freshness to the area,caused by two lows that met over the goldfields that the weather office declared extremely rare,it has rejuvenated my work area but my lawn at home has gone off its tops,the Mulberry tree I plated look fab and the secret garden is coming a long beautifully. The loganberry is actually bearing fruit,they ll color soon and just to try one will be awesome.the poor raspberry is holding its own but it ll be a few seasons before it does much,the asparagus is also looking look but again it ll be a couple years too.
I think Ive developed a shoulder problem after  a bit research looks like a rotor cuff problem, not sure how I can handle that as I dont want to take time of work so taking Brufen and resting while I can.I cant brush hair which is nearly to my waist lol and getting myself toast this morning was interesting

,I have a rather handsome scar developing on left leg too after noticing a nastie the good doctor (who happened to be a surgeon ) cut out,its lucky as it was a true nasty,but hes assured me he got it all,I had stitches out last Tuesday and bugger me while taking work boots off Wednesday ripped it open,the nurses here at nursing post managed to get it back together and now Ill all super glued up.
Next job to do is mow lawns and pot up some wonderful dutch iris that a friend gave me,looks like zillions of them lol

A bit of wet weather

Wow I havent seen so much rain for a while,11mls on Friday followed by 43mls on Saturday night and now another down pout,my lawn has grown two inches I m sure. The last drop and it was a drop came down half an hour ago with what sounded like buckets of fine hail then heavy heavy rain for ten mins,it was red on the radar, I dug up the lawn where the Mulberrys going this morning so that ll be well wetted to pull the lawn out.I wish I could mowed the grass on Friday though
Im getting head way with essay,intro and first paragraph done, but busy looking for a citation to fit into last bit,it seem a long way to 2300 words when Im up to 520 now and havent finished talking about the first of three works,hmm Sublime it has so mnay twists and turns in its history and when I have to connect beautya s well ,that a double Hmmm,I have Friday off next week being my RDO so should get it down by that weekend so I can spend two weeks polishing.
My arms and shoulders seized up on me for the last three day days,finally found some ibuprofen, which has taken off the sharp pain,lets hope I can work properly tomorrow.I have a feeling Ill be coping some flack this week for some reason.
More pics,I did a magpie this morning after breakfast,he needs some more tweeking but Im happy so far

A little update

The weathers turning well interesting,two blokes in family have gone fishing up coast from Esperance and are strict instruction not to put toes in water,its Mulga country,remember that documentary on that something that ate a young lady shark? well thats where that big sharky lives,its known as the shark corridor from Melbourne round to Perth,and a good fishing spot.

Anyway grew the courage to speak with Principal today to ease my mind after all the bad vibes i had my way since the failure of an applicant getting job,hes reassured me it remains confidential,lets see how its spins,but I feel better now.

I had a wonderful visitor today,we talked for three hours,and I hope Margaret has her car back very soon, I do hope I will see her again,it was wonderful to talk with someone not from here,it was like a breathe of fresh air!!! See Jan she found me!!!Lol
