The Dentist!

[insert scary music here]. Actually no. I don’t need scary music. I always enjoy going to the dentist. I have my annual check up and get told to come back in 12 months for the next one.

Yesterday, in fact, my dentist’s remark was “god you have boring teeth”. I took that as a positive sign. It’s quite weird, because everyone else in my family has shocking teeth, what with having fillings and teeth pulled and whatever. I’ve never had anything like that. For that, I am eternally grateful.

I think it’s because I drank lots of milk when I was a kid. Still do now. I have a glass of milk with my lunch every day if I’m not eating out. Surely all that calcium has to do some good. I’ve also never broken any bones (and of course because I’ve put it in writing I will no doubt fall down the stairs this weekend and break my leg) and I put that down to strong bones from all the milk too.

I still have a slight headache. I’m assuming that chopping my head off will solve the problem. Failing that, I plan to spend the long weekend sleeping as much as possible.

Hey! Now why is there no holiday for ANZAC Day this year? Not good enough, Mr Brumby. Get your act together.

Thursday night we are having dinner with Brooke, Greg and Jeannie at Rockpool. The woman from there just rang me to confirm my booking – she said “I’m just making sure we’re going to see you again on Thursday?”. Obviously she remembers ringing me last week to confirm Saturday night’s booking as well. Looking forward to dinner! I will try and take a photo of the dessert, for those who asked 🙂


Stuff I did on the weekend

It was a busy weekend. Okay it wasn’t really but I did a few things.

Saturday we went and got the (newly cleaned) doonas from the shop. Last time we took a doona in to be cleaned it got sacrificed to the dry cleaning gods so we went to a specialty shop this time. Cost a fortune but they both came back safely, and clean! We also went and collected the jackets we had on order from Mountain Design, then went to Mario’s for lunch.

Saturday night I took Mr Dad to the football, to the President’s Club dinner at the Collingwood v St Kilda game. Collingwood won and the dinner was great so a good time was had by all. I did lose my voice for a day from all the yelling.

Sunday wasn’t so exciting. I did washing and the grocery shopping.

Ah, but I have created my new photo blog! I am giving WordPress a go for this one, so far it’s okay (am I allowed to mention that word on Blogger lol?). I’m going to try and upload a picture each day, but we’ll see how that goes.

I haven’t bought any new shoes for ages. It’s very depressing.
