Well this is the view I've had for the last week. I broke my foot on Easter
Saturday, went to ER on Sunday morning and because it was a Public
Holiday until Wednesday, I was given crutches and told to come back
Wednesday to get it plastered. Not good!
Anyway I have been in a plaster since then, I'm due for a check up
next Friday to see if it's healing. It is called a Jones Fracture, which
apparently is one of the worst to heal bones around, as it doesn't get
much blood flow to it. I've been told to stay on my back with my foot
elevated higher than my heart. Yeah right!
Can you imagine if staff didn't get wages, and I seem to keep getting
phonecalls asking if I can do this, can I send that.....
So unless I actually turn the phones off it just can't happen.
On top of that John and I have decided to move on. We have done
what we came to do at Hodgson which was establish a station from
scratch and get it running.
We have a small block at Dundee Beach that we are trying
to do work on, and we are finding it hard to commute, cause it's 6hrs
up and 6hrs back, so there's our weekend gone.
So we have accepted a job at Koolpinyah Station, which is about
4okm's just out of Darwin. So we are pretty excited about
living close to town, and it will be so nice to knock off in the
afternoon and sit on the verandah overlooking the huge lagoon
and have a beer together.
So onto a new chapter in our life.
Now just to pack and shift on crutches................................................
