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. 😊

I am so looking forward to seeing this. I am waiting for the kids school holidays to finish, (they go back Tuesday,) and then  I am going to go and see it. :-)
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.

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.

My middle daughter suffers from social anxiety and general anxiety. She was diagnosed with Asperger's at the age of four so it is difficult for her to interact with strangers even on an everyday basis. She is in her early twenties now and has gone through a lot of horrible crap including a nasty breakup and multiple court cases that he has dragged her though hell as well as losing her job because she fell pregnant. (Yeah, that actually happened.) Other than give up and crawl under the bed, she has decided to face her fears and get out and meet new people. She loves to knit and crochet and sew. She decided with the help of an old friend to create and knitting group. She went online and got a few replies so she organised a place for the group to meet. Our friend, an older lady cancelled at the last minute leaving my daughter high and dry to meet new people on her own. But instead of cancelling, or going into a panic, she went out there on her own to meet and greet the new members. She asked if I could go out there. (I am not a member of the group as I really don't knit or crochet,) for moral support but I had an appointment I could not cancel. The poor thing was terrified, but she went out there and sat and waited. (Look, I know she is an adult, but for her, this was really scary.) Sadly no one showed but she is undaunted and willing to try again. This is a huge step forward for her, I am so happy and proud. She really is coming out of her shell. :-)
4th-Jan-2018 08:02 am - Happy New Year
Although it has been a rather sad start with finding out a young girl who I used to live near passed away. I had not seen her since she was in school but I remember her as a sweet happy little girl who loved playing with my kids. My heart goes out to her family.

On a slightly happier note, Steve and I might be doing another job up to Queensland. I always love going up north, the only problem though is that the heat tends to wipe Steve. He hates the heat. Still, it's always an awesome road trip.

I have a feeling 2018 is going to be a bit of a mixed bag. Hmmm...
Merry Christmas and happy holidays. I hope you all have a wonderful time. Steve and I are having a quiet Christmas this year. With all the kids scattered around the country and one over in New Zealand, we decided to just have Christmas at home this year. Steve's son is spending the day with us. He has his Star Wars lego so he is happy. LOL.
Speaking of Star Wars, I saw the Last Jedi. I really enjoyed it, I don't know why so many people hated it, I thought it was good. Oh well...

Well off to eat more Christmas goodies. Have fun everyone.
