I want you all to cross everything...for excellent news this morning from our Insurance Company. The lady handling our 'case' said she would be ringing me this morning with news on when our flooring etc will be fixed.
As I'm not a very patient person, I am hoping like hell she says it's going to be SOON... like this month would be awesome.
It's not a problem right now of course, we can use the rooms/garage just fine. What is a problem is KNOWING that it all has to be ripped up, and the disruption to our household will no doubt be immense while the repairs are done.
I am dreading that.
It's hard enough keeping everything ticking along nicely without having your floors ripped up... not to mention the back wall of the garage! I am hoping they don't uncover more damage once the wall is down. They will be able to see into the back of the kitchen cupboards once the wall is down... hmmmm.
I am going to be taking Miss Muppet to Sylvia Park for her access visit of 1 hour with her father today too.
Keera has established a bond with her father now, and enjoys her visits with him. So, hopefully in a while he can be the one who comes here to get her.
I'm a little 'over' being the one who does all the running around to be honest.
There was an 'understanding' that the father would contribute a small sum towards MY running costs, incurred getting Keera to and from her access visits. If there is nothing forthcoming today then I will have to re-think our 'agreement'.
Gone are the days when I would just go 'Oh well, nevermind'... I've been used once too often to let it happen again.
He came right up to my open window and asked me for money for the bus! I was freaked out cos he just appeared right beside me.
I was ruffling around in my bag at the time trying to find something and he could have easily just grabbed my bag and run!
But he didn't of course, but still. I got a fright.
I don't get how anyone can just roam around a car park asking for money! Anyway *sigh*, he was weird.
Right... off to start the day. Lunches, washing, pick up Keera bla bla bla.... oh and wait for that important phone call.
Today's access visit got cancelled. Seems he's been sick and doesn't want to pass it on to Keera. Awesome. Now I can stay home and look at my phone! lol
Well .... I am also going to be looking at the loo... cos my tummy is NOT HAPPY. I think the increased dose of Metformin is making me sick.
I woke up a dozen times during the night feeling like I was gunna throw up. Ghastly feeling. I hope it doesn't continue all day too.
So... me tummy is still doing nasty things. And I keep feeling like I'm gunna throw up any second. Ikkkk. My Mother had this happen when she went on Metformin. She was so bad she had to stop taking them.
I think the fact that I havn't been taking the Metformin every day has saved me from being ill. Yesterday I took all me pills. And maybe this is the result?
ABOVE: who else is bombarded with ANONYMOUS SPAM comments all day? I am. And I'm over it.
So... I have activated the comment option where all comments on posts older than 1 week get put in the SPAM box, and everything else is automatically published.
I will check all the SPAM comments once a day, and if you have left an ANONYMOUS comment and it's not published, just hang in there, it will be as soon as I can go through them all.
I get between 50 - 250 SPAM comments a DAY. Anyone else got this problem???
This morning between 8.56 am and 9.01 am, I got 79 ANONYMOUS comments... grrrrrr.
Sitting here looking at the phone, willing it to ring. But it hasn't yet, so Bex and I are going down to Spotlight to get some fabric so she can make absorbent pads for inside her bra. She's been going through the disposable ones so fast it's really starting to cost too much.
I bet the phone rings just as we drive down the road!
JACKIE: I'm sorry you are having some problems with Chico. As far as I know none of our other puppies have had any problems at all. In fact they are all doing very well indeed.
Bex and I have been out...
ABOVE: Dante in his pram. He loves being in it... almost always sleeps the whole time he's in it... which is great.
ABOVE: Our new Spotlight store in Manukau. We love it. The arrow points to yet another poor old bloke sitting in his car waiting for the wife to finish shopping in Spotlight! Stew does not have this 'problem' as he enjoys shopping as much as me! YES, I'm blessed. lol
ABOVE: two fabrics that were on the sale table... $6 a metre. SCORE.
I had seen a really nifty needle threader a couple of years ago, and I really wanted to get one, but none of my usual haunts had them.
Then last night I suddenly remembered where I'd seen it. A fairly new fabric shop in Manukau, it's tucked down a little driveway out of sight. So, we dropped in there and to my delight, she had two left!
ABOVE: the colour choices were Purple, or Purple. So I got a purple one! I can't wait to use it.
Lunchtime here.... off to make a sandwich ...
Lunch done. Long yak with me Mother done.
Now it's time to do a wee bit of sewng.... Bex wants to make some washable breast pads.
I got the phone call I was waiting on after lunch... the insurance company have assigned our 'job' to a building company. But they couldn't tell me when they will start.
So I rang the building company myself. And the bloke who has our 'job' is away until Monday. So I have to wait to hear from him now. Bugger it all.
ABOVE: Bex is sewing! I think she's scared of my big machine... apparently she has not sewn in many, many years.
She's making the nursing pads. V..E..R..Y S..L..O..W..L..Y. HA HA HA!
End of Day: thank god I felt better after about 10 am this morning... no more nausea. A quiet evening has been spent watching tv and cuddling our baby boy Dante.
