wings and things


on April 8, 2014

Ming and I are going to Perth tomorrow to stay overnight with my niece and her husband in their new house and that’s the exciting part of the journey. The next day I have my first ever appointment with a skin specialist to suss out this pompholyx and, hopefully, get blood and allergy tests.

Unfortunately (and interestingly, having read a few blogposts about how hard it can be to keep up with blogposts) I will probably succumb to blog-fatigue. So, if you don’t see me on your blog, that is why. Also, Ming’s final (we hope!) court hearing is happening next Monday so this is a bit distracting too.

I took Anthony for a long drive on Sunday and it was a wonderful success; his new telephone is working for him better than the previous mobile; and I have rather belatedly discovered the secret to happiness in that it is something you create rather than wait for.

Oh! Ming just said he is auditioning for a part in some sort of production that requires a 20-year-old male with short hair who can deliver “a menacing look”.

    Good luck with the skin specialist ………and Ming’s final court appearance.

    Can’t wait to hear the verdict (for both? of the above). No doubt Ming (and you) will be relieved too.

    ……and good luck to Ming for his audition.

    Safe travels Jules & Ming.

  14. Good luck with your appointment. I hope you can get that sorted out and get some help for it.

    Made for the part. I hope the medical appointment goes well.

  21. Have great mini-vacation with your niece. Good luck on Monday, I send thoughts of compassion to the judge on Ming’s behalf. So good to hear things are for the moment better with Ants. You’re absolutely right; we have to stop waiting for things to happen, and just DO things!

  22. Good luck to Ming! YAY to a wonderful Sunday drive with the love of your life! Save travels to Perth and hopefully the doctors will give you some good answers about your hands! πŸ™‚

  23. Hope Ming gets on well with the audition and you get some answers about your hands.

    My best wishes too dear Julie, Good Luck to Ming. Love, nia

  25. FlaHam says:

    Julie, Smiling, I will miss you of course during your absence, but you know absence makes the heart grow fonder. Take care, take care of business, and be safe. Also when Ming auditions just tell him to use that face he uses on you. That should get him the part. Take care, Bill

  28. Tiny says:

    All the best! Hope everything will go well.

  29. Lynda says:

    Julie, I have been very much absent (had my knee surgery on Tuesday and have been convalescing) and now you will be on hiatus! We’ve such good timing, eh? I know you are hobbled with your skin condition, but I do hope to hear a bit about next Monday if you can manage it.

    So glad that you are getting some serious help with your skin, and that the trial will be over soon! I will be praying on both counts!
    Love you,
