I was on the train to Brisbane yesterday and i got a call from my son and he was feeling frstrated because Jean had phoned him and said she had to take the car key to the mechanic. Unbeknownst to her daughter, she must have gone early in the morning and then got confused and my poor son had no idea what to do as she had him driving around for 45 minutes.
First of all she couldn't remember where she was supposed to go and then wanted to go to the shopping centre and as she didn't specify, took her to 3 in all and then he said he would wait and she yelled at him no. He then drove to my friend's and told her where her mother was and I'm sure she would've gone to get her in a taxi. My son phoned me to tell me he was almost out of fuel. Suzanne gave him $10 and got some petrol in the car.
I was going over today, but she was too busy so will go visit my friend tomorrow and will insist she brings the car to my place so that she does not get in the car again. She is getting assessed again in a few days. Thing is neither of us drive a manual so might have to get my son to bring it up here.
Poor boy, he didn't know what hit him...
I had a good day back at school today and got straight to class as I had fixed the paperwork yesterday (pupil free day). Let's hope the term gives us good results.
I also did a service as a volunteer for a ultrasound school. Whenever they have a particular topic the new radiologists are studying (how to use ultrasound mainly) and I am their "patient".
They do not give me results as such but if anything untoward is found, they email my doctor. A good deal and they are so nice. Today was the bowel and stupid here had a diet Sprite and they had a hard time finding organs and aorta etc due to the huge amount of gas. I really felt so stupid and they said it matters not as they have to learn how to search and technique etc. I recognized a lot of terminology from my Human Movement course and felt smug...
It is already 11 35pm and I am going to bed now as I will have a busy day at tuckshop tomorrow. It will be god to get mobile and active again.
Good night all
