Thanks everyone for coming over to my new home to say hello. I really wanted to separate my blog life from Huffle’s, and I wanted to be able to do a bit more with the look and feel of this blog, which is still a work in progress. Like a decent header – I still have to make one of those. Soon 🙂
Barb wanted to know if the Boy, my partner and my husband are all the same person. Yes they are! His parents always call him boy, and my father always refers to him as the boy, and he didn’t want me to put his name on the interwebs, so sometimes I call him any one of those things. He is one person though 🙂
I’ve spent this morning updating software on my iPhone and iPod Touch, and putting new songs on all four iPods. No, I don’t have any idea why I need four iPods either.
Penny and Valerie, Milky Ways are called Three Musketeers over your way. I can send you some of ours if you like 🙂
I had a really crappy day at work on Friday. Nothing that will bother me next week when I go back, but I plan to eat chocolate and read my books this weekend as respite. Speaking of books, I’ve now read As You Do by Richard Hammond, and started on Thanks For The Mammaries, which is an anthology and a fundraiser for Breast Cancer research. So I’m doing my bit for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
How annoying is Ben Stiller? Seriously.
I don’t know where the week goes. Just a minute ago it was Thursday evening and I’d just gotten back from Wodonga. Now it’s already Saturday evening (and I am demonstrating my exciting life by writing my blog whilst sitting here in trackies and eating chocolate lol).
Friday I woke up with a mild headache. Friday night I went to bed with a massive headache. This morning I woke up with the headache again! ARGH why me? Finally, after two days, it is gone. I have had aspirin, nurofen, mersyndol and disprin max to try and deal with this one. It’s probably the worst headache I’ve had in months. Not good.
Anyway, this morning a friend came to visit to raid my shoe collection (87 pairs, remember). She is going to some event and has the great dress but no shoes. Sadly my feet are bigger than hers and the perfect shoes would have fallen off all night. So we decided to go out for lunch instead, then went into town to do some emergency shoe shopping. I am pleased to say she got the PERFECT pair of shoes (we took the dress to make sure). I found two pairs of shoes that I might have to go back and look at again. Manolo Blahnik will send me bankrupt one day.
This afternoon, after the successful shoe shopping that wasn’t even for me, the boy and I went to Mountain Design to buy toasty clothes for the upcoming holiday. We spent a LOT of money but have many nice things to show for it. He is currently sitting here in his polar fleece pants, polar fleece slippers, merino hoodie top and down puffy vest, marvelling at how toasty he is. I’m surprised he isn’t wearing the beanie and gloves as well as the thermal underwear. But he’s happy and now almost convinced that he won’t freeze in Canada. It’s all good.
Not surprisingly, the evil place has not rung to say my new iPod has arrived yet.
Yesterday I had a shocking headache. I woke up with it and it just got worse and worse through the day. I had to go home from work at 3.30pm. Well, really I had to leave because I conveniently had a doctor’s appointment. I had to get some stitches out. My doctor told me to go home and have some nurofen for the headache, then have some mersyndol when I was going to bed. So I did!
Feel okay today although a bit fuzzy in the head. I have a friend coming for dinner tonight but thankfully it will be a very casual affair. I am making a prawn and fennel risotto. I’ve made it before and it’s very tasty! Also, I have a massage beforehand so that should sort me out!
I should be getting my new camera this weekend! I’m so excited. I just rang the evil place about my iPod too; apparently they are waiting on new stock to come in. Hopefully tomorrow. But I’m not holding my breath. They said they’d ring on Monday and I’ve just had to ring them. Typical!
