One Heck Of A Week!

Just when I thought my week was going to be easy, it turned into a week of being not.  Right from the get go, it started out being a very busy week and didn't let go of me; not until this morning when I could sit down and take my time with things.

I'll begin at the beginning - a very good place to start of course.  Sunday was a wet kinda day, so all my laundry ended up being inside instead of out on the line as planned.  I couldn't do anything else around the place I had planned, so I washed up and ended up on the computer here surfing the net and doing some writing.  
Monday was a massive day out.  I was away early on the bus to Garden City where I bought myself a Diamond Touch at the Shaver Shop for $20.  This thing is fantastic.  Do try it out.  I also bought an Easy Step Mat which sucks up all the dirt off your shoes and keeps you from tracking it all through your house.  A great thing!  It was also $20 at Big W.  Before I knew it, I was off to Springwood by bus to pick up a free-standing coat rack from Target.
While at Springwood, I was also going to attend my Craft Group at the Springwood East Community Centre.  I arrived at Mum and Dad's place just on 11:30am; a mere half and hour before my group was to start!  So, I unpacked my gear, grabbed a drink container and made my drink and prepared myself for the afternoon and headed on up to the centre.  While there, I painted two clothes pegs and had great laughs with the girls and then - before we knew it, after some builders put in a set of double doors at one end of the hall - it was 3pm.  I packed up my gear and walked back to my parent's house.  This was my Monday.  I was stuffed.  I spent an hour putting together the coat rack with IKEA-like instructions and a pretty picture on the front of the box with the idea that I needed a spanner but really when I looked at how it went together, I needed a screwdriver.  And by the time I figured out how it went together, I wanted something as stiff as the drink and not the tool!

On Tuesday, I dragged myself out of bed, shoulders killing me, and wishing I had more sleep to my night.  I was going out again!  This time, I bussed it to Mum and Dad's place to sort out two boxes of my childhood toys.  They had been boxed up when I was in high school and put away by my folks and now it was time for me to look into them.  So much of this brought back memories, it was amazing!

A Blast From My Past 

I thought a story from photobucket would be better than a series of photos... it was a lot more fun to put together too.  Hope you guys enjoy it; and you remember toys from your time here too, as well as some things from World Expo '88.

Wednesday was my only day off.  But it didn't mean I didn't have any problems.  I had my fair share of them.  The computer I'm on now played up big.  When I turned it on, it went back to the factory settings; deleting all my photos and acting as though I had just bought it and turned it on.  And yet, it knew I needed a password to get into it.  Stupid thing!  So, I called Mum and Dad on their mobile and they came around for some coffee and Dad looked at it saying his computer did the same thing the other day.  I did remember my stereo system played up a little, with the 3-cd platter doing a little dance and getting stuck before behaving itself (and it hadn't done that since I bought it).  So, something was going on!  When we turned the computer back on, it was all back to normal - stupid thing!

Well, yesterday, I was off to the doctors to get checked up at the gynie.  He and I chatted about what the Pill did to me last year and he said it was good I stopped taking it; we'll try something else, seeing I can't take anything to do with the Pill now we know what it does to me.  He had a look and said surgery to remove the cyst was my best option now and to put in an IUD to help with contraception.  I won't be having the operation until next month, so I have plenty of time to get my house and life into shape for somebody to stay with me for a bit afterwards.

Today, I'm off on a date with a lovely man, Jeremy Murphy.  He and I are having lunch in a little over an hour's time.  I hope it works out well and we get along okay.  I haven't seen him online this morning, so I'm guessing he's on his way to the restaurant we agreed on.  
So, this was my week.  How was yours?  Good and busy like mine?  Or slow and sunny and relaxing?  Let me know, I'd love to hear about it.  Until my next post, take care keep safe and warm and remember, I'm always here.

    1. I had a wonderful time with Jeremy. He and I have a lot in common and enjoy the same foods and are taking it very slow.

      I will see him again - hopefully soon.
