Surprise package

We had a busy day today, left home at 8.45 to go to Cabrini hospital in the city...over the Westgate Bridge and thru the tunnel...boy that was slow this morning....for David's appointment with the Neuro Dr. he had a little adjustment made to his DBS and many questions for the Neurologist...then we went up to Ward 2 where David was after his op and saw some of the staff, David wanted to say thankyou!  They all asked if he was still painting his little figures ......he must have made quite an impression on them, the figures are interesting but he also managed to get paint on the sheets, the chair, the floor, the table and himself!!!  We called in to Geelong to do some messages on the way home and finally got home at 5.15pm. I had to do a quick run to the supermarket and then home. I noticed a package in the letter box and when I got it inside saw it was from Barb Smith ,I didn't remember making an order , when I opened it up this was what I found
How nice is that!! Thank you very much Barb for your lovely thoughts and generous gift!! You are right, everyone needs a pink elephant!! There are some wonderful people in the world and Barb is one!
Happy smiles here.

Gosh Sue that was so lovely of Barb. People are so kind.
Reading your post bought back memories. We lived in Melbourne oh about 45 years ago when I was just little and my Dad was one of the builders of the Westgate bridge. Unfortunately he was working on it when one of the concrete spans collapsed next to him and he lost some really good mates. But it will always bring back memories and hopefully one day soon my husband and I will get back to Melbourne and I have promised him a trip down memory lane to see the bridge and Spotswood school which I went too.
Hope hubby keeps improving.
