These men, all fire-fighters in real life, are brave at all times, not only when they fight fires, go to accidents , or attend all sorts of emergency call-outs, but when they agreed to be the superb models for the 2013 calendar.
Now, the only question, where will I hang this??
In my computer/quilting room? where I sit each morning…
In the kitchen? So I can admire the men as I cook dinner!!
In the hall so everyone can admire the men,all 12 of them??
I will decide on January 1st 2013.
Today we went to Wanganui for Hugh’s visit to his GP. Our Doctor was blunt,and said how lucky Hugh is to be alive. I did not try to read “ between the lines” but he made very sure I knew the drill if it happens again, and how to do CPR. Scary words,as he then went on to say what activities are restricted, or not allowed at all.No bike-riding to get fit, no walking up hills, no heavy lifting, no driving for another week,so all in all nothing that will cause his heart to work harder.I am not sure how long this has to be “OBEYED”,
Hugh is finding some of it hard to not do.
So I have ordered in large quantities, patience, love, care, kind words, ears that listen to words unspoken, time to be there for him, bravery if needed,hugs and reassurance that all will be OK.
Before this visit we had been to Kathmandu, and I have been saving my birthday money until I found the right gift, this is a combined present from our daughters.
There they were, red and black, with that comfy warm neoprene sort-of-material lining, non-skid soles, and so easy to put on and pull off !!!
My new Gumboots!!!
