What’s the 12 of 12 about?
The idea behind 12 of 12 is to take 12 photos that show what your day was like on the 12th of each month. Sometimes it can be a fun day out, other times it’s a typical day at home. You can still view the entire series of pics from December 2009 through to the present on my Flickr 12 of 12 Collection.
Saturday 12th of January 2019 started with making an appointment and updating my calendar. After that it was time for the treadmill and some gym time. After a shower and lunch I did a bunch of ‘paperwork’, had dinner, played a few games of bingo before next I knew it was bed time. A quiet, but good day.
This was a hard 12 of 12 to do as it was my first without Rod. I’m experiencing many of these and I’m sure there are many more to come in the future. I had a GP appointment in the afternoon so did some prep for that. Aside from that and answering the door to Florists, it was a quiet day.
Monday, November 12th 2018. Rod was in the hospital, receiving palliative care for pain relief. After doing some gym at home, I visited with him in the late afternoon, early evening then came home for my own tea, catching up at the computer and finally a late night getting into bed. The photos of Rod were taken just a fortnight before he passed away, which probably explains why it took me so long to update the 12 of 12 page.
Friday October 12th 2018 was a fairly busy day for us. Gym in the morning and then a trip to the city so Rod could have a very specific type of radiation treatment to remove a lesion in his brain. I spent the time he was having the procedure across the road in a bushland park, trying really hard not to worry too much.
Wednesday the 12 of September. Rod’s in the hospital because he broke his leg (the one he’d had surgery on just a month before). A lonely morning with the cats and then breakfast, I made some soup in the slow cooker, visited Rod, came home, had a very late dinner and went to bed even later.
