Mike arrived in Auckland yesterday for the National Netball Tournament... so we get to see him for a few days.  Yaaaa.

Knowing us, we will be down at the courts cheering for his team over the weekend.  It will make a nice change for sure.  He's carrying an injury in his hip, so hopefully he lasts the weekend and isn't subbed off.

ABOVE: Coco, Mike, Griffin, Stew, Brylee, Steve and Teddy.  

Poor Coco and Teddy are in cones now... I'm sure they are itchy due to something in the air.  They DON'T have fleas.   

I am dedicating this morning to blog reading.... then I will do some housework.... and get Brylee's room ready for Kelly and Rena.  They are coming up tonight for the weekend.
AND Bex is coming up for a LONG weekend too. 

So... full house!   Mike is not staying here sadly.  He's staying with his team mates in a motel over near the airport.  But I am sure we will see him a few times over the weekend.

THANKS LYNDA!  Though I have remembered...

ABOVE:  reminders like this are hard to ignore... lol!
So, no blog hopping for me right now... gotta get me face on ... then when I get back I need to tidy the house, make beds for visitors etc.
Amanda, Andrew and Emily are coming tomorrow as well now.  Gunna be busy!

Back from the Dr's... and my blood pressure is EXCELLENT!!!  I was a bit surprised by that, but very happy.
I have to get a blood test for diabetes, on an empty stomach, so will go in tomorrow morning first thing.
They don't do the 2-3 hour test anymore... just one blood test a month for 3 months to check the levels of HbA1c.  I am also getting my cholesterol level checked too.
So... covering all the bases.

I had a Nana nap this afternoon.  Had a headache.  It's gone now which is good.

A HUGE Congrats to one of my BFF Chris Davies down in Palmerston North, who has finally got herself a full time job after trying to find one for over a year!  I'm so happy for her.

End of Day:  and I'm drinking wine to help celebrate Chris D's new job! 
I made hamburgers for dinner... I had them too... WITHOUT the bread buns.  Go me!
ON TRACK:  well if ya don't count the wine... yes.
nite nite.
