Today Steve, Bex, Dante and I go to the radiology clinic and we get to see their Baby # 2.... and all going well we will find out if baby is a girl or a boy.
They have chosen to not announce the baby's gender at this point... but the baby's grandparents (me, Stew and Bex's Mum) will know. Exciting!!!
We can't wait to see him/her again.
I have a little list of things to do once the scan is done. One is to make an appointment to see the Diabetes Nurse, I want to find out my latest blood test results and get a 'script for me meds.
I'm still coughing.... in case ya wondering. I do believe I will be having a chest X-ray in the next week or two.
I've decided to buy a laptop .... one that I can work on at night in the lounge, and also take away with me on my little 'escapes' from the family. *smiles*
So, I might just do some looking around at the possibilities today or tomorrow.
I thought of getting a tablet, but Steve thinks I will find it really annoying to type on a tablet. I suppose avoiding things that have the potential to annoy me is a good idea. Yeah... it is. I'm crabby enough!
My only other big thing to do this week is start wrapping presents for Christmas.
Who else HATES wrapping presents?
I am soooooo not looking forward to it.
While at Anne's on Sunday night, she brought out of her cabinet this gorgeous cupcake to show us:
Anyway... one of her grandsons must have thought it was a real one cos....
ABOVE: ONE of them has tried to take a bite out of it! I bet it was a real disappointment to whoever did sneak a bite. lol
ABOVE: waiting on our dining room table when I got home last night. Awwww. I've got such a lovely hubby.
Right, time to get ready for the day... I'm so excited to see grandbaby #13 again. He/She is going to be so much bigger than last time.
Well... I've spent a few hours out and about. The scan went well... all is at it should be with baby. Nice healthy looking bubba.
After the scan I went to Warehouse Stationary and bought a few things for Xmas:
ABOVE: I have decided to put everyone's present(s) in boxes. And I've co-ordinated all the wrapping paper this year too. I think I've got enough! lol.
As I was leaving the shop I spied a small stack of craft desks on sale. I've had me eye on a really nice craft desk (for cards etc) for FOREVER, so to see them reduced to half price was just too much for me and I had to get one:
ABOVE: I am very happy with it, and even if it stays in it's box for a year until I have room for it, so be it. HALF PRICE People! HALF PRICE!
I am now going to have a break, watch some mindless TV and chill out till I have to go up to the school for Griffin's prizegiving/end of year assembly.
So I just spent over an hour and a half stuck in a stinking hot school hall with hundreds of other parents, kids and teachers listening to endless speeches, awards etc and now I'm home all hot and head achy. Such fun. NOT.
But, I suppose I should feel good for even going? Griffin didn't get an award for anything, but then we weren't expecting any.
I've chosen not to cook dinner tonight, I'm too tired to be honest. My cough (5 months long now) has literally sucked all my energy and I just feel like sleeping by this time of the day.
First thing tomorrow I am going to the Dr, one to get my blood test results and top up on me medications, and two to see if I can get that chest x-ray sooner, rather than later.
End of Day: an eventful day, with a delightful little reveal. I am allowed to spill on baby's gender tomorrow... so pop in and find out.
