Visiting, housework, etc

Mutterings continued.

Did a fair bit of housework this morning - vacuumed, washed the floors, all the stuff I've been avoiding.

Earlier in the day I called into the flower wholesalers and bought some more roses (red and white and yellow and red for Butler and red for meeeee), then spent half an hour unleafing and dethorning them. They are now sitting very elegantly in a green bucket.

Had lunch with John who is babysitting his granddaughter.

And then it was on to Bunnings to buy some supa glue to repair the vase Dr Prentice broke on Saturday night. *sigh* Actors!

Leece and Ros are coming to tonight's performance; not sure if it's Rob's thing.

There was a message on the answering machine when I got home, asking me to call the Public Trustee's office about Dad's will. Odd, I thought, Dad didn't make a will. Apparently they go through the death notices and follow up with the rellies when the will isn't claimed. It seems that William Smith is a fairly common name (who'da thought it) and they just wanted to clarify that they weren't holding a will for him.

Lots of interesting mail over the last couple of days - a postcard wiv a train on it from Leece and Rob, three decent cattledogs (Lush, Office Works and Bunnings) and a cheque from Dept Vets Affairs for $1,000 to help cover the costs of Dad's funeral. That's the maximum amount they give and I was surprised to get it as I thought they would just make up the difference between what he had in the bank and the cost of the funeral (in this case a few dollars).

Actually, considering how many times that vase gets abused during the play, it's a miracle that it stayed intact for as long as it did!

I cringed when I watched Jenny pick up by the rim last night - exactly where the repaired join was!
