I didn’t know how strange a day it would be. Yesterday my day started with an eye test. Yes, I need new glasses. I pick them up in a couple of weeks.
Then it was home to do some work before heading off to the Sunshine Coast – Maroochydore to be exact. I was looking at a campervan – maybe I will buy one, but I am just looking around. That was a strange experience as I am so undecided about it all. But I did my best to show that I knew what I was doing.
It was near Cotton Tree – a popular spot near Maroochydore so I popped down to get some sea area. I was fascinated by the kites/kiters in the waters. The caravan park appeared to be full, as were most of the car parks. I did a short walk to watch the kites, before returning to my car.
I also wanted to research for an article on Weekend Notes – it was a shop in a major shopping centre.
An Unexpected Strange Medical Event
I went into the shopping centre and introduced myself. Shortly after a girl came in – a friend of the girl behind the counter. I took the photos and was talking with her when I noticed the girl was fitting. The shop girl phone the girl’s parents, who said they would come straight away.
It was a bit frightening. As a former nurse, I had seen people fitting, but this was a bit out-there for me. I sat with the fitting girl while we waited for her parents. At times I was quite concerned – feeling as if I should be able to do something, but could not. The shop lady was grateful that I stayed and kept an eye on the girl on the floor as she could service her customers. She knew the girl well enough to have experienced a similar event with her, but she was very concerned. I tried to hid the fact that I was well out of my comfort zone.
Eventually, the girl’s parents arrived and the girl after fitting for nearly an hour came around and was soon on a wheelchair that her father brought with him. Safely with her parents.
Then it was off to the WordPress Meetup. Which is always a bit strange!!! Mostly because I learn things that I didn’t know existed. Very interesting. At half past nine I drove home back to Beachmere.
