Of Birthdays, Pianos and Falling Down

Last week would of been Hisaos 56th birthday!
I was trying to imagine what he would of looked like. Maybe not so different!  The only
thing that showed his age was his receding hair line!
We didn't really do much this year, I just had no energy to do anything special!
One nice thing is that he is still very much part of our daily lives, the kids have their own  memories that they share, I have mine and that seems to be part of dinner conversation!  It's nice somehow!

fun with the kids!

In other news we  got a new piano!  Not new but new to us! one of Mikey's friends moved house and his piano was too big so he sold it Mikey.  Mikey got it very cheap so we are happy.  Both Mikey and Hannah play.  I would love to learn but have no real patience for all the practice that goes into it!

And falling down!  That was me the other day.  Hannah and I had gotten out of the car, David was trying to back into the parking space a bit more, I was telling Hannah to move from the back of the car when I fell over the blocks that are there to stop the cars!  I fell heavily on my right side, scratching my arm pretty bad!  Hannah went into panic mode for a while, when she realized that I was okay she found it rather funny!  The next day was awful.  I was in so much pain down the right side of my body and my back!  Feel better now but am very careful of those blocks!

How did get to be June......

And I haven't posted!
Every day I think about updating this blog but it's always later!  Then the day is gone and the blog hasn't been updated!
May was a rather crazy month!
The first week everybody except Mikey got sick.  Just some stomach bug that was going around.  Not nice at all.  But we managed to celebrate Hannah's birthday!
I took her shopping, she wanted a game for the Wii machine that we have but we couldn't find the one she wanted so I ended up buying  a Wii U game.  I know it's old and the latest thing is the Nintendo switch but we are always behind on these things!  She also got a lovely watch!
She is spoilt, I know that and so does Hannah.  The other day I was saying that she is too spoilt, her answer was "Of course I'm spoilt, I'm the youngest and the only girl!"  What more is there to say!

The rest of May passed by in a daze of teaching, cleaning (always cleaning), reorganizing the teaching room, planting a few herbs and veggies (hoping to get something from the garden). 
I took a quick trip into the city, I wanted to check out the big bookstore to see if there were any good books for Junior High School  kids, but couldn't see anything that appealed to me!  I was totally exhausted by the time I got back. I can't believe that some people do that trip everyday for work!

David had been cooking up a storm the past few weeks, He has found that he enjoys baking, so we have had some nice treats!
