Freezing October weather, even for Canberra!
Thursday October 8
We farewelled Mum and Dad and Deirdre , as they left for Sydney about 9:15am. It was a farewell marked with confusion. It was amazing that we had a garbage truck trying to turn around in the culdesac as Mum and Dad were arriving and getting out of the car! You had to be there to really believe it! Somehow, only the garbage was collected and Mum and Dad have survived to tell the tale.
Only minutes after their departure, I got the call from the specialist to say I had an appointment for Wed 14 October at 12noon.
