Congratulations to my husband Steve for being promoted into the office. He has been working for the company as a truck driver delivering steel to building sites. Yesterday the manager told him that she wanted him to work full time in the office. As much as he loves driving, he is getting a bit beyond the physical work and with his Essential Tremors, it's making it even harder for him to climb up and down the truck to do the crane, chains etc.

He has always wanted to work in an office so it is really great, I love seeing him happy. :-D
6th-Jul-2017 07:29 pm - A Good Week
It was a pretty good week, my daughter has started her radiation treatment. The good news is that the cancer is slow mving and has not spread. She does not have any other cancers so that's good news. It is still hard to believe that she has cancer though, she is only nineteen. I know young people get it as much as older people, but it is still such a shock. she is handling the treatments though, she goes every evening. Her blood pressure has dropped a little and she has been getting nauseous, the doctor is keeping an eye on it. She is very positive though which is good.
I looked after my step son for a couple of days while his mum worked. (It's school holidays) we had fun going to the beach and the park even though it's been freezing here. Andrew loved feeding the ducks but got a little freaked out at the flying foxes hanging from the branches of the trees. :-)
25th-Jun-2017 01:29 pm - What a week
It's all been happening this week. First of all, my niece gave birth to a beautiful baby girl called Dakota. It is her first so exciting for the whole family. On a sadder note, my 92-year-old father is back in hospital again. He went in yesterday with chest pains and it turns out that his kidneys are only functioning at 20 per cent. The doctor also thinks Dad has hardening of the arteries, so, not good.
He is having tests today so hopefully we will know more soon. Steve and I were down the coast watching whales swimming in towards the coast when we got the news about Dad. We went and saw him last night, he is in good spirits, but he is so unsteady on his feet. His wife isn't handling Dad being sick very well, so I am worried about her as well.

I am not hopeful that they will allow Dad to go home this time but I can't imagine him living in a nursing home. Knowing him, he would hate it. I don't think his wife Letty could cope with it either so we are all worried. But I just want Dad to get the best treatment. It is hard to know what the best thing to so is when someone is that age. We are going out to see him again soon.

So stoked for Supanova, it is one of my favourite comic cons. I have Friday though. I usually go on a Saturday, a couple of times on the Sunday, I prefer the Saturday as they seem to have more on. Friday is the only day I have to go this time but all the stalls will be open so that is okay.
I am just sorry I won't be going on a day that the cosplay is being judged. I love the cosplay. :-D I wonder how many Wonder Women will turn up though. LOL Should be a few. :-)
19th-May-2017 08:16 pm - An Annoying Day
I have been having a few health problems lately so I have been doing the rounds of the doctors and being sent for tests. I had to book into a local hospital for some tests. First of all, I tried to call them to make an appointment. After waiting on the phone I managed to talk to someone, who put me through to a department, who put me through to another department, who put me through to ANOTHER department. Then I finally reached the section that I needed, only to get a recorded message that I had to fax the referral through to them. So not having a fax machine I decided to just take the referral in myself.
I got to the hospital, it is one of the larger ones in my area, I wandered around trying to find someone that could help me. Once again I bounced from section to section finally hitting a dead end. I was not the only one, the hospital is undergoing renovations and no-one could find anything. Finally, I managed to find the department I needed, (it was out in the street) only to be told they would call me back with an appointment time. (They haven't.)
Boy if this is a taste of things to come, this is going to be horrible. :-(

No spoilers so I won't bother putting the post under a cut. Great movie and I am really looking forward to the Wonder Woman movie coming out as well.
I have been having fun watching some old favourites on Youtube. I found an old anthology series from the early seventies. It was originally called Ghost Story and had Sebastian Cabot as the Host. It was later renamed Circle Of Fear and there was one episode that featured a killer toy horse. I loved that episode, as a kid it scared the hell out of me. It is a great series indeed that can make a toy horse scary. LOL

I am so happy that these old shows are still available. :-)
My wonderful hubby took me to Cairns to see my sister,, my brother in law, my niece and two great nephews. It was so exciting to see them again after so many years. We were a little nervous when we thought cyclone Debbie was going to hit but it went further down the coast.
I am worried about one of my nieces in Mackay. I hope she is all right. I messaged her and I have not heard back yet.
I just hope the people in Queensland are safe after being slammed by cyclone Debbie. It is one of the worst we have seen for a while.
5th-Mar-2017 06:04 pm - Gay And Lesbian Mardi Gras
Steve and I went to the Gay And Lesbian Mardi Gras last night. This time my nineteen-year-old daughter came along for the first time.

Oxford Street was packed but we managed to get good spots, not right at the front but close enough that we could still see. The rain held off even though the clouds were a worry, it did rain a little towards the end, but only lightly.

It was fun, plenty of floats but we were surprised to see a Liberal National Party float there, aren't they the ones blocking marriage equality? The leader of the Opposition Bill Shorten was there, he marched right past us so that was good to see. Now if he can only win an election.

It was a lot of fun but it seemed a more political this year. I know the Mardi Gras did start off as a protest against police brutality and the unjust laws at the time, and I know that same-sex marriage is an important issue, one I fully support, but I hope that the Mardi Gras does not start becoming too serious. I love the sense of fun that it has, the costumes, the glitter, it would be a shame to lose that even though I realise the importance of getting the message out there. After it finished, Steve and I wandered down to Kings Cross to grab something to eat while the daughter went home, (she had work the next morning.) Ended up having the best meal really cheap from a little roadside cafe. :-)

All up it was a great night but we are both so tired, guess we can't party like we are twenty anymore. LOL
