It’s been a busy week, but a good one! Here’s a quick overview:
In the morning I went to the doctor to get him to sign off my medical. I am officially healthy enough to apply for my visa 🙂
After that I wandered over to one of the conference rooms in the building where the craft ladies were hosting a sewing day for the kids in the area. They do that once every school holidays. Back when I was joining them more regularly we were swamped with about 30 kids one holidays! We then learned to limit numbers and make sure kids registered. This time there were about 8 kids making these cute banners:
Don’t you love the cow fabric on the left?
Tuesday saw me heading to Melbourne on the train to go to the medical board to get my medical stamped. Basically to confirm that the doctor I see is a real doctor. On the phone they told me to come in and they would do it on the spot. Of course from past experience (this being the fourth time I am applying to live in Arabia), I knew that one of three things could happen:
- They stamp it on the spot
- They send me home and send it to me the week after
- They send me home and tell me to come back to pick it up
Turned out that fourth time was unlucky and I had to leave it there and come back another day to pick it up. Even though I know they can post it (they did this last year for DH) they insisted there was no way… so c’est la vie, I took the train home again.
Wednesday was fun day!! I invited myself and friend Heather to spend the day with friend Brenda playing with her Brother and my Ella Elna! We managed to get Ella to make a pretty butterfly with only a few tension issues:
And Brenda made me this pretty coaster on her Brother machine:
…..was Australia day and I am sure I did something but can’t remember. Probably housework.
Back on the train…. with my crochet. Two hours to get to Ahpra… 10 minutes to sign in, go to the 8th floor to pick up my medical, and two hours to get home again. I got a lot of crochet done.
I have a very special project in mind for these yummy bits of fabric 🙂 It’s a secret 🙂
So that was my week… off to see what you all were up to!
