So... today I am giving you a little video of Steve yakking.
It is a 'test run' ... using the webcam on my computer. I want to see if I can do a video and post it here.
Now... IF it's there, it worked! I think it worked? LET ME KNOW?
Once I know it works, you MIGHT just get a few more little videos... I will make sure I have me makeup on though! Can't have you all saying I look haggard or some such! *smiles*
AND... AND...AND... I can post all sorts of stuff... like the kids yakking to ya, Dante coo'ing, and of course... me yakking too!
FIRST UP... our grandson Bodhi is having a little operation in Perth today ... all going well. He was born with one of his fingers in a bent position, and it does not flex straight, so it has to be broken and straightened. As he's been sick with the flu I wonder if he will be operated on today at all? Time will tell... they are 5 hours BEHIND us so I won't know till much later today.
NEXT: Stew is taking Lacy and Keera to the Super Clinic to have Keera's little lump on her chest checked by a Paediatric Surgeon. I was going to take her but I was lucky and managed to get a hair appointment for lunchtime today, so Stew gets to go instead.
One must do what is necessary to look semi-decent eh?
My re-growth is horrific. Bex is getting her hair done after me, that way I can look after Dante while she's having her hair done. Yaaaa.
I think that is all we have on today?
My memory is a bit like a sieve right now... so much is going on, so much to try and remember... grrrrr.
Thank god Stew and my kids are so good at 'helping' me remember stuff... well them and notes. Lots of NOTES. I'm just so busy keeping all me ducks in a row I forget when something is thrown into the mix unexpectedly!
Oh to not be so busy keeping track of everyone/everything!
ABOVE: ya gotta love sticky notes eh?
ABOVE: I bought this 'MENTAL BLOCK' cos I thought it was funny, it's not often I have a 'mental block' when it comes to what to put on me blog... hell... I will post about anything! But, I got Steve to drill some holes in the top so I could put me pens into it... works a treat too.
And yes, there is something else happening. The Plunket Nurse is coming today to check how Dante is doing. When your Midwife stops visiting, the Plunket take over.
We are very lucky here in New Zealand, Mum's get all the support they need for free.
Plunket Nurse came ... all is EXCELLENT with Dante... he is now 10 pound 8 ounces... not long until he is as big as Steve was at birth! lol
So, I went to the hairdressers, had me hair done ... it took 3 hours, then Bex arrived and I watched over Dante while she had her hair done. Dante slept the entire time which was great!
5 hours after I got there, I got to leave.
I'm happy with my hair... it is exactly the same as this morning, only with me re-growth sorted and about an inch off the length. Majda, my hairdresser, wanted to take about 4 inches off! But I told her if she took off more than I wanted I woudn't pay her. She took off 1 inch. Clever woman is Majda! lol She knows me well enough to know I meant it too.
ABOVE: it's still a bit wet... I never get it totally dried at the salon. I like it to dry naturally.
It looks like she has made my fringe (bangs) a bit deeper too.
I am loving the webcam... I took these photos with it. It gives very 'sympathetic' photos... ya can't see as many of me wrinkles, this is a good thing. *smiles*
Once Bex has fed Dante I will get a photo of her hair too...
End of Day: been distracted by dinner/American Idol... so have not had a chance to get a photo of Bex yet.... oh and they are in their room watching a movie anyway... best not to DISTURB them!
