There's nothin' better than the great OUTDOORS, is there? Sittin' in the tube, floatin' lazily along the shore and stayin' in the water to cool down a wee bit..........tryin' to really get that core body temperature down.........snoozin in shade........watchin' the sun go down.......settin' up the fire for a little weeney roast.........spendin' time with family and friends........what could be more relaxin' ?!
Now just imagine that in the middle of all this relaxin' you get THIS text message from your very pregnant and due to have the baby anytime soon daughter on your blackberry.........WHAT? My very pregnant little Angel needs her Care Card number ASAP?
For you american readers out there, I may need to clarify this Care Card number thingy. This is our universal health care insurance number that allows us access to medical attention.......not great medical attention but.......I'll leave that story for another day.
Now, back to my story and my mini-heart attack moment. My little Angel had left the lake a few days ago and gone back home to finish off the baby's nursery. As you can imagine, the above message made my heart stop for a moment! Has the moment come to usher us old folks into Gramma and Grampa-hood? So I quickly messaged back........."Is it an EMERGENCY?"
As you can see, my son-in-law is not going to let me off the hook too easily because this is what he messaged me back..........but fortunately, the Wee One is waiting patiently for Gramma to get a little closer to home before he/she makes an appearance.
So, now I'm off to do a Winery tour just up the hill which involves looking at the wine cellar and tasting a number of different wines........Woohoo! Gotta GO! The wine's a waitin'.
