Yesterday, I was up early to get organised for the arrival of Meghan, Prue’s friend from New York and ex housemate, who was coming to have her hair done( yes,I was a hairdresser in a previous life lol) for the Derby Day races.We had a trial run during the week and yesterday was the big day. The Derby is a major event of the Spring Racing Carnival,a high fashion event. Meghan had assembled a beautiful and sophisticated outfit and she looked fabulous. We are anxiously waiting to hear how the day went.
Later in the day, we all worked on the bathroom and it is very close to completion. I have selected the mirror I want but due to the long week-end here, I will not be able to pick it up until Tuesday. We have been taking photos regularly and I will post all of them soon. For many, this may seem like an on going saga( which it has been) but I am so excited that finally we will have a bathroom, that is aesthetically pleasing and user-friendly.
Prue received a letter on Friday, confirming her surgery for Nov. 13th, which she is over the moon about.So am I because she really had endured so much over recent years and she is too young to be burdened by ill-health. She has been home a week and it has been lovely. Of course there have been a few minor differences of opinion between D and her, but over all , it is going very well(big sigh of relief).
I have a meeting tomorrow and then later , Mum and Bill will be calling here on their way back to the country. I am looking forward to seeing them, catching up with all their news over a late lunch, which I will prepare when I return from the meeting. 🙂
