A few people have mentioned that April was a sort of strange month. I would have to agree, especially regarding the weather. Warmer weather meant it was easy to forget that it wasn’t summer and Autumn was in it’s second month.
We had another road trip, not by choice this time; there was an appointment with an oncology specialist at Auckland Hospital. A busy city is Auckland, and luckily our few days there, we didn’t need to use public transportation or the car to get to the Squires appointment. We stayed at the Cancer Society Lodge, which is approximately 500m from the hospital. Without repeating myself, head to my previous blog post.
Apart from our trip to Auckland, we have enjoyed spending time together and walking around the neighbourhood and local beach. Brunch has been a real treat, with outdoor seating making the outing more relaxing, and who doesn’t enjoy food when it’s cooked by someone else? The mentioning of food has brought me to the subject of growing it. With our need to keep our lives simple and our human interaction even more so, I have decided to opt-out of being socially active, and the community garden is one of those activities. A hard decision to make, though on medical advice, is best to keep the seasonal bugs at bay. Less pressure all round.

Senior Women into Shooting Hoops [S.W.I.S.H.]
This month, one of my best decisions was joining up with the local walking [fast] basketball team—what a lovely bunch of women who made me feel very welcome. I even managed to dunk that ball into the hoop twice. Well, once into the opposition’s hoop, it still counts as one in my book. I did wonder why there weren’t any mad arm gestures in front of me. As mentioned, I have opted out of group activities until we come back from Auckland and the Squires immune system is in a better state. I have a team t-shirt arriving soon to keep me motivated and focused and working on my fitness. Watch out, girls, I will be rearing to go on my return.
