Oh No !! Wow !! Phew !!
Well what a weekend I've had. The title says is all .. let me explain
Arrived home from work Friday around 6pm, with thought of sitting down doing the usual, scotch, smoke followed up with a little computer fun... but OH NO... that just wasnt to be. I got to undress into my dressing gown (my favourite attire !!) pour myself a scotch ... then the phone rings, its Serayhas house mate saying that Serayha had hurt herself and was bleeding badly.. could I come around, I didnt ask any questions, dropped the phone, hastily redressed, grabbed bandages, gauze, antiseptic, tweezers .. as I didnt ask what had happened, I just grabbed what I thought maybe needed, jumped in the car and off I go. I arrived at Serayha's to find her laying down in the backyard, looking very pale with so much blood on the ground, my heart racing, I parted the friends that were standing around, to discover that she had stood on broken glass and had a very nasty gash under her foot. We were not able to stop the bleeding, so I wrapped it up with the dressings that I had grabbed, and rushed her off to the doctors. The doctor was concerned about the bleeding as it was very deep, thought an artery might have been severed, but luckily for her, he was able to stop the flow, stitch it all up, and send us on our way home. So she is now getting around on crutches, but doing okay. She had me take pictures of the wound, so she could see it, and post on Nans blogg, but I will spare you the gruesome pictures, but so you are able to put a face to the name here is a pic of my "baby girl". Serayha is pronounced " Sir - ray - ha". Serayha on the left, her mate Sammy on the right.
Saturday, Jo and the kids arrive for an overnight stay on there way back home from visiting with mum. I forget how full on having three young kids around can be .. it was like being hit with a hurricane. We had a great time, I got to spoil the the little ones, got lots of kisses and cuddles in. After we settled the kids down for the night, Jo, Ian & myself got to have a few drinks catch up on all the happenings, my neighbour Maree come over, so she joined in with us, we finished the night around 2.30am, early by our standards, but with the thoughts of the little ones waking up around 7.30am, we played it safe !! Naturally, when the kids did wake up, it was upstairs to Aunty Carol with requests for chocolate followed by breakfast!!!
Its now Sunday arvo, Jo and the kids have just left - peace & normality rein again !!! I went around to check up on Serayha, cleaned & redressed the wounds made sure everything was okay, then back home. I'm looking forward to vegging infront of the TV tonight and relaxing, before heading off to work again tomorrow. PHEW !!!!
Hope you all a great weekend,
