The week that was No 2

Well here I am at the end of another stinking bloody hot day, had temps as high as 40°c today but finally this evening a cool southerly has arrived dropping the temp down to around 35°c so still bloody hot, hopefully tomorrow will be cooler.

I really need to have a nap during the day because when I don't I end up feeling unwell around 6pm and when I do go to bed it is difficult to settle down.

Yes Sunday turned out to be much cooler, I was up at 6am and found Leo asleep on my arm chair so I didn't turn on the TV or any lights, he slept till 9.30am.

Sunday night saw me in a right state, I was not just shaking but somewhat confused, I couldn't make up my mind what to do. Natasha walked in to see me sitting on the lounge crying, she gave me something sugary to eat and made me other food after eating I was fine.
Monday morning is cool and wet but of course it didn't stay that cool nor did it get hot, so all in all a good day. Took Leo to see his paediatrician that went well he was mostly well behaved, no change to his medication.

Tuesday was Leo's birthday and watching him open his presents is such a joy he shows such excitement. Also on Tuesday Papa & Leo left for a two night camping holiday, this of course excited Leo.

Wednesday morning I started back at my aqua class, also that morning Natasha said she was concerned about our neighbour in unit 8 she hadn't seen or heard her since Sunday so she contacted the woman's son who also hadn't heard from her. So Natasha rang the cops who took over an hour & a half to turn up, when they did they had to break into the unit as no one had a key. The neighbour was found deceased in her bed it looks like she has died in her sleep.

Tim and Leo returned from their camping trip Thursday morning, Leo had a wonderful time he did get a little sunburnt on the back of his neck and the back of his legs, Tim said he did apply sunscreen but still sunburnt happened. I gave Jessica Aloe Vera to rub into his sunburn.

Friday Tim took a heap of stuff up for our curbside rubbish collection, we have two such collections a year.

Now we are at Saturday again and it is still hot but Australia is hot

I would love to be in Australia, now! Bloody hot suits me better than bloody cold. We have -8C, here in southern Ontario, Canada, and that's fairly mild compared to the rest of the North American east coast. Everything is relative, as they say. ☺ Wishing you a good weekend!

So sad to find someone who has died alone... Sadder that a neighbor thought about her before a son.

Janie Junebug said...

It was nice of Natasha to think of the neighbor. If she hadn't done, the poor person might still be lying there. One of my fears from living alone is that I will die and no one will notice.

Sorry to hear about your shakes glad Natasha helped out. Great of you all to be concerned about a neighbour. Well done. What a good idea of Tim taking Leo Camping.

Nancy Chan said...

If not for Natasha's concerned, no one would know what happened to the neighbour. Those living alone needs good neighbours to watch out for them.

That's what happened to my mom. She committed suicide and we hadn't heard from her in 3 days. Both my sister and I lived 3-5 hours away so I had to call around since she was not answering her phone. I knew she had a Dr's appointment so I called to ask if she had shown up and when they said she didn't - I felt sick. Of course, NEVER thinking she actually took her own life. I then had to call the police and it took an hour or so for them to break inside.

Newspapers on the walkway and her barking dogs. Then the police called us back with the tragic news.

We are in our "winter" months here in the U.S. but Florida is always in tropical temperatures. High tomorrow will be 81. Wow---the story about your neighbor---how awful!

Debbie......Today it is a lovely day here in Newie only around 24°c but it is only 9am so we will see how the day pans out

Chris........It is sad that for some going days or weeks without hearing from a loved one is normal

Janie.........Yes it happens far too often that a person dies and no one notices

Diane........Leo loved camping with Papa so much he wants them to go away again. Natasha is a loving and caring woman

Nancy.......Yes so true

Debby.......Oh how horrible, that would have been so upsetting and such a shock

Mama........I assume Florida is like Newie in that the winter months are not that cold

A friend down my street had the same thing happen. She had a key though. She had risen for the day and her neighbor's little dog as still outside after 10 in the morning and barking a lot. That never happened as Jerry only let the dog out to go to the bathroom and then, he was back in. That concern made my friend call Jerry with no answer. Finally, deeply worried about what she would find, she did unlock the door and found the woman had had a heart attack in her bed and died.

Hope you are doing ok Jo-Anne.
That is awful that the lady died alone, but mostly likely in her sleep. May she RIP.

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

Katie........The risk of living alone is dying alone which is so sad

Margaret.....Yes we believe she died in her sleep
