A lunch and NZ food
Joe came over at 11am Wednesday and we went for lunch at my usual haunt. In conversation, we explored the options for his future a bit more. He seems pretty set on coming back to Brisbane around this time next year and staying with me. Part of the reason for that is that he wants to help me lose weight. As I have already made some moves in that direction, that could work.
I was due to go in for some rather pesky surgery on Wednesday afternoon but got a bad cold that morning so had to cancel. I suspect that all colds are bad colds at my age.
I had however made arrangements for that night which were predicated on the surgery. Von & Simon were going to come over and make me NZ food for my supper and Jenny was going to join us and stay overnight in case I got into any difficulties that night.
I saw no point in cancelling the supper so I was pleased to have Von and Simon come over. Jenny couldn't eat the food because of her gluten allergy but brought her own version with her. Von demonstrated her idea of how best to have NZ Marmite and Simon made us some NZ cheesy rolls. And it was all very tasty.
My nose had stopped running by that stage so I was able to engage in the conversations fairly well. Jenny brought along some Lego for Hannah, which Hannah played with devotedy. Hannah's mother and grandmother had fun with it too!
