Fog and Shiki

When I crossed the SHB this morning I could hardly see from the middle to the end because it was hid in mist…

The fog was localised to the area of the bridge while the rest of the city looked clear. It was still thick by the time I got to the Quay – the bridge was barely visible…

At lunchtime Yuko came to the city to meet me for lunch at Shiki. We had our ‘usual’ table overlooking the streets of The Rocks. We decide that Shiki’s Ebi Sushi is pretty good, but Yuko’s is just as good…

 

Mother was not well when I visited her tonight. I am worried that she might not be well enough to move to the hostel tomorrow. The hostel asked me to bring her over at 10.30am, and she wants to go to her house first to pick up some things. So we decided that I’d pick her up at 9am tomorrow.

Mother Spills Juice after Surgery

In the morning I saw a couple of dudes building a white tree…

And in the afternoon I saw this from the office…

Not knowing what time Mother would go to surgery, I tried calling her at about 11am. A nurse answered and told me that Mother had gone to theatre at about 8.30am. So I called the patient information number and they told me she was still in surgery and to call back in an hour. So I called back in an hour and they told me to call back in an hour… and so on. As I had a long meeting in the afternoon, Lady Macbeth took over the calling duties. Then, at 4.15pm while still in a meeting at work, I received the following text from Lady Macbeth…

“Now on ward  10b spoke 2 her, v tired, same patient number x”

Which was surprising because it indicated to me that the surgery was over, and that Mother was already awake and talking! And indeed she was. When I arrived at the hospital she was looking very well indeed. However, she did spill her juice!
