Today was supposed to be a normal, cleaning, sorting day, but as usual it didn't quite work out like that. I did accomplish three loads of washing so that was a victory - and seeing as they all dried on the line it was a cheap victory :)
Dad arrived about 11:15 for lunch, but he hadn't slept at all and looked very ragged. He ended up trying to sleep on our lounge, but that didn't work either. The kids ate, but Dad and I skipped lunch. We dropped some stuff off at the Op Shop and then headed for Dad's place as he had an appointment. The kids were so good while Dad and I were meeting with the people. Chickabid messaged me at one point because the Ladybug needed a tissue - don't you love technology - apart from that they just read their books and worked on word puzzles until it was time to go.
Dad ended up coming back to our place after his meeting as the afternoon was stretching before him long and empty. We had a good chance to talk about everything that has happened, and how he might move forward from this point. He made some plans for tomorrow which is a step forward. When The Other Half came home we ate, then Sister arrived on her bike. We ended up playing tag on the trip home - she arrived at dad's place about 4 minutes after we did, despite her being on the bike and us in the car.
Hoping tomorrow's holiday will be restful and restorative. It's desperately needed around these parts.
