9th-Jul-2018 04:32 pm - A Lovely Day At The Camillia Gardens
I decided to go for a walk around the Camillia Gardens today. It's a lovely place not far from where I live. It's right on the bay so there is a huge abundance of wildlife and birds and the creek running through it. I love the picnic areas and the play areas for the kids. The creek is filled with koi and the occasional tortoise and confused lost looking eel. :-)
I love the huge colony of flying foxes, possums and reptiles, although I can definitely do without the snakes LOL
I really should do this more often.
A couple of photos I took. :-)
29th-Jun-2018 06:31 pm - Feeling Sad
I have re-homed my little dog so I am feeling sad. With both my cat and dog gone to new homes now the unit seems so quiet. I called in to visit Dad and he is not doing so well. He is nearly 94 and he now has two spots on his lungs-he is a non smoker-and his prostate is enlarged so that's a worry at his age.
Steve and I had a few other things to do then we went to our favourite club for coffee and cake. I have to say it's strange not being greeted by the furry guys, it's so quiet now but as Steve has pointed out, the amount of travel that we do, it's better that they go to homes where they are not being left alone all the time. This is the first time in my life where I haven't had pets so it will be an adjustment.
24th-Jun-2018 12:23 pm - A mixed week
What a roller-coaster of a week. First of all Steve hurt his hand at work, he took a fall off the back of his truck while he was unloading it and fractured his middle finger and tore a couple of ligaments in the back of his hand. He now has his fingers taped up, poor thing.
I have had to re-home both my pets. My cat who I have had for years started attacking my little terrier x. The attacks were becoming more and more vicious to the point where my dog nearly lost one of his eyes.
I have no idea what started this. Both Tom the cat and Tipper the dog were living to together just fine then suddenly Tom turned into Hannibal Lector.
My youngest daughter has taken the cat, I drove out him out to her this morning. She has sent me a couple of photos showing Tom has settled right in.
I will be re homing Tipper a little later this week. I feel really bad about this but the amount of time Steve and I are away and now there is no one here to keep Tipper company and he can't be left alone. He is too sociable. It will be strange not to have any pets around as I have always had animals. Still I can't see what else I can do.
On a lighter note, I have my new laptop. My old Toshiba was on it's last legs so Steve took me to The Good Guys. They are having a sale so now I have a new Lenovo. It's a great computer. The only thing is that when I use the @ key, it comes up " instead and vice versa. Steve asked if I wanted to take it back but I am keeping it as I like the fact it's a little eccentric, like me.:-)

Going to Supanova today and Sexpo tomorrow. I usually attend Supanova on Saturday as there are more cosplayers but because Steve and I are going to Sexpo today is the only day I have to go. One good point though, less crowds to gave to get through to check out the back issue comics and collectables. 😊

Just watched the Netflix remake of Death Notefollow the cutCollapse )
22nd-Feb-2018 03:18 pm - A Lovely Surprise
I have been wanting to get a little car for some time now. Nothing fancy, just something to run around in. Since giving up work due to health issues, my husband and I have been tightening our belts somewhat. I tried various ways to get a couple of thousand dollars to buy a car, but nothing worked out. Oh well, I thought, I guess it was not meant to be.
Then yesterday, Steve comes up the into our flat looking very serious. Uh oh, thinks I, something's gone wrong.
Come outside, he tells me, I have something to show you, so I followed him down the stairs and out onto the street. He stands in front of a white 2 door Mitsubishi Lancer coupe. Look at this he says. I am staring at it thinking, okay, what's wrong, it's just a car parked out on the street. Then he hands me the key and tells me it's mine.
So, me being the tightly in control person I burst into tears and start hugging him. LOL
It turns out he had been looking for a car for me for over two months, he finally found a good car that wasn't too expensive and he went and bought it for me. It was such a sweet thing to do. So now I have a car and a wonderful hubby. :-)

I was at the local hospital today visiting a friend of mine. She is confined to a wheelchair and she has been having breathing and swallowing problems. While I was there, a visitor asked if they have an MRI there. It seems that they don't and have to refer patients to St George hospital to have it done. The nurse was telling me that they are just as astounded that a hospital this size does not have one. They have been trying but can't get the funding. This is while our politicians are taking their families on overseas vacations and charging the taxpayers for it. Disgusting.
23rd-Jan-2018 05:03 pm - Hospital today
I had the test for my heart done today. The hospital staff and the cardiologist were really nice. I had to go under a local anaesthetic so they could put the stent in and inject the dye, The good news is that my heart is fine. So now onto the next test to see where all the fluid in my legs is coming from.

Talk about a rocky start to the morning though. I was supposed to be at the hospital by 10am, my husband hurt his back. I had to call the ambulance and what made it worse was, we had Steven's son with us. We must have scared the poor kid to death, what with his father rolling on the floor in agony and me trying to call the ambulance.
His mum came and picked him up and the paramedic gave Steve a handful of painkillers.
While I was at the hospital, he went to the physio and had acupuncture and massage with really helped.
The one thing that had me worried though was my blood sugar after the nurse gave me some sandwiches, it was over ten. Yikes, I am still sticking to the low carb diet though. I have lost over two kilos. Yay.
