Ladies Luncheon

Went out to a Ladies Luncheon at Grove Arm Queen Charlotte Sounds. Six of us drove around to Diane and Micks lovely House for a pot luck shared meal. Lovely sunny day, great scenic outlook, great hostess and great food = Perfect day. Whats more I didn't have to drive, was able to sit back and enjoy the pretty drive around the Sounds.

Grandson Kayne

 kayne. and I.
While is Nelson I took my lovely Grandson out to dinner at a Chinese restaurant of his choosing, I ordered the banquet for 3 people and thought we would have a feast, but the food  thogh really nice and tasty, was really skimpy and just the 2 of us didn't have very much, however it was adequate specially with the fried bananas for dessert.... the most delicious part of the whole meal. very much enjoyed the evening out with Kayne.

Altrusa House Nelson.

My husband Erle has just returned  from a weeks stay Nelson Hospital, where he had his big bowel operation to reverse the previous operation when he was left with a bag. He now has it all rejoined and he is normal again. A very big long complicated operation, he was treated really well while in the hospital and has made a reasonably good recovery, though it will take time to be really back to normality. A long recuperation

is planned.

I was fortunate to be able to stay in Altrusa House at Nelson Hospital, as it was within the hospital grounds I could visit Erle 3 -4 times a day after he had his operation. The is a wonderful facility, it is fully air conditioned so is always cosy, there are 6 rooms and people came and go frequently, all of them nice caring people who have a loved one in hospital. We all gave each other support and comfort as needed. Cost only $30 a night, and some food is also supplied, mainly for breakfasts. Very peaceful restful home away from home, a God Send for me and many others.
