Last Day of September 2016, Uta’s Diary

I wrote this post nearly two years ago and mentioned that we wanted to visit the Prince Henry Hospital Nursing and Medical Museum. Last Sunday, the 5th of August, we finally were able to visit the Museum. We went there with Monika and Mark. We were very interested to talk to the two volunteers at the museum. When these two women had been very young nursing sisters they actually looked after our daughter Gaby who had been in Prince Henry Hospital’s Respiratory Unit after she had contracted polio.


So, today is already the last day of the month. It was a pretty hectic month for this 82 year old.  Two years ago we celebrated my 80th birthday.

This morning Peter discovered a flower on our ‘butterfly’ bush in front of the window. We call this little tree ‘butterfly’ tree because its leaves look like butterflies.

  1. Glad your articles are back on-line again, Uta. WP is full of mysteries. They keep asking me to upgrade. This involves a payment which they promise prevents advertisers from clogging up the blog.
    I don’t mind change generally but in the IT world ‘change’ often results in chaos and a nervous breakdown.
    My eyesight is getting worse and writing becomes more difficult. Thank goodness for the red lines under misspelt words.

    1. They keep offering me too to upgrade, Gerard. I am very confused about this. I thought to be on ‘premium’ is sufficient. Why should I be on ‘business’? It does not sound right to me. We live in an IT world where frequent changes are the norm. IT, that is Information Technology, isn’t it? Come to think of it, without it we would not have a computer to write on. I am not very technology minded, and I do find it awfully difficult to adjust to constant changes.

  2. Oh, the photos are lovely! It looks like it was a wonderful birthday for you!

    I’m so glad you were finally able to visit the museum…and talk to two of the wonderful women who cared for your precious Gaby!

    Guess what?! I don’t remember if I’ve told you before…I was born in September, too!
    HUGS!!! 🙂

  3. Maybe some more great celebrations when I turn 85 next year?! 🙂
    I am looking forward to visit the museum again some time soon. We have a lot of memorabilia about Gaby’s life. Maybe the museum would be interested in some of it.
    Hugs from me too! 🙂
