Shaunna and I are currently in Tasmania due to her sister Janice being rather ill and in hospital. Sadly, Janice lost her battle with illness and passed away yesterday afternoon, Saturday May 12 at 4.00pm. She was 74.
Shaunna and Janice were very close and they were best friends as well as sisters, hence Shaunna is finding it hard to come to terms with right now. I normally don't travel too well due to vertigo and etc, but I am glad that I came with her this time to be of support during this diffecult time. Besides, I got on really well with Janice and her husband, Denny, and think the world of them, so it just felt right to be here for them, too.
On another note, a sour one at that, we briefly stayed with the daughter, Bianca, but that was not good and it ended badly. To cut a long story short, she was out drinking every night while we were there, leaving us to house and pet sit, and when she was there, she was loud, rude and abusive, angry all the time and aggressive. Not only that, the house was a complete pig sty and stunk because of the pets not being house trained, etc. We did what we could to help, but it was not appreciated in any way, shape or form. No, we just copped her abuse and bad temper, and we'd had enough so moved into a hotel room until we go back home on Wednesday May 16.
