Pack up and carpets up
I then needed to just get a couple of items at the shop. Thankfully friends live really close to the shop and so she sat in the car with Asher while I quickly got the shopping. I had done most of the shopping earlier in the week, but had these last "fresh" items to get. I know how expensive it will be to get anything in Hanmer, so I wanted to get as much done before we left.
Asher slept a little on the way home and then thankfully got more sleep in her bed. The photo above was taken once she woke up. The painter came today to start doing some plastering work. He just started working on any cracks that were easy to get to. Through the morning though, Brendon, Rachel and I got a lot of packing and sorting done and so could move even more furniture away from windows to give him even more access. Asher was happy to have her balls to play with, even with all the work going on around her. The painter just got a lot of "hi" greetings from Asher when he was working in the lounge. :-)
We stopped in Culverden for a Fish and Chips dinner. The first thing the children have been SO looking forward too. :-)
After work Daniel drove up to join us in Hanmer. The 4th bedroom is in a sleep-out, so he had that for the weekend. It didn't take long for the games to get started after he had dinner.
Then it was time to fix the floors. The floor boards had only been stapled down, so the earthquake had wiggled many of them loose. They got screwed down well today, so we are really looking forward to no more squeaking floors.
It was a rough day for Asher. She had a seizure at 6:45am. She had come into our bed at around 5am and was having a lot of jerking. Just before the seizure happened she sat up and kept hugging me and then sitting up. I had just asked her "is a seizure coming" and it started.
She had another one at 12:30pm just after lunch. It really tired her out and she slept for a couple of hours rather than her normal 1 hour.
