An unusual Mothers Day



Today would, I think, qualify as an unusual Mothers Day. I left my four youngest in Melbourne and dashed up to Bendigo to visit my Mel in hospital.  Mel is fine, had surgery late last night and is facing more surgery later this month. Naturally, I am a little on the worried side but am confident she is in good medical hands and I know her husband will take the best of care of her. This did kind of overshadow his recent birthday though, but I am sure Mel will make it up to him later.

Autumn has arrived well and truly in Bendigo as this streetscape illustrates.

Despite the autumn look and feel, the hospital gardens were still hosting some lovely flowers and even the bees were out and about.

Mel and her husband gave candles for Mothers’ Day – I LOVE candles!

I came home to kisses and a card from my younger crew! :D



They had wanted to come to Bendigo too to visit Mel, but we were out most of yesterday, there was homework to do, plus it really was a flying trip up and back. For overseas readers, it is just over one and a half hours drive each way, so there would have been a lot of “I’m bored” and “Are we there yet” stuff if I had taken them all with me! :lol:

Mel, we all wish you a speedy recovery and we will be trusting for the best outcome on the 20th. Hugs and kisses.
