Sunday outings

So today we bundled the brood into the brick with wheels and headed north to Australian Walkabout Wildlife Park thanks the the remarkable charity, Brainwave.

An awesome FREE day for the family and a staggering success until sometime around 2pm when I picked Grover up and did my back. I kind of shuffled around for the remaining hour and a half but by the time we were heading home I had to lie across the back row of seats as being upright was impossible.

Now I’m dosed up on useless non-codeine imbibed ibuprofen with an ice-pack jammed into my lower back (it’s my lower back that has completely seized, making my entire thigh area completely numb and tingly and me basically incapable of walking. Awesome.) trying not the think about the fact that in 8 days Oscar is having surgery that is going to require me to lift him. A lot.
