WAKEY WAKEY little chick... you are now *8* years old! and Yaaa, in another 10 you might just be ready to leave home!

Kelly and Leigh will be looking after the kids this morning, I'm off to Middlemore Hospital for my regular check up and blood tests with the Heamatologist... lucky me. No doubt I will come home full of holes.

I'm catching the train from Manurewa to Middlemore... wish me luck ... ain't done that before. Hope I get on the right train going in the right direction. LATER....

Awesome trip to Middlemore, caught the train no problems at all. Had a lovely yak with several people on the train, then at the hospital all went well. My new heamatologist is really neat, a real crack up guy! Needle went excellent, didn't hurt a bit! And they took the right amount this time.

    Hay dragon-lady. I woke up the other day and a sentence i do believe u said was playing through me head. I do believe it went something like "i will get you a hair straightner before we leave". I do hope you keep to your word, all except the "before we leave part".

    Your favourite son.

  22. Happy Birthday Brylee!!! What a beautiful birthday cake.

    LOL @ you chatting to people on the train, such a friendly girl you are huh?

    Glad to hear all went well with the hospital - and getting there too!

  23. Chris-

    Glad to hear that things went smoothly at the doctor's. There is nothing I hate worse than when they have problems getting blood and you end up looking like a pin cushion!

    Hard to believe Brylee is 8! How time flies! I hope she enjoyed her special day (and that wonderful looking cake!)

  24. Wishing Brylee a Happy Birthday the day after. Oh to be 8 again! Glad to hear all went well on you trip to the hospital.

  25. Ooo! Pretty cake for a pretty girl. Happy birthday, Brylee!!
