Steve and Bex are too excited to hold their news in... so without further ado, I give you:
"THE GENDER REVEAL"
CLEARLY, we have another baby grandson on his way. ETA 1st of May, 2015.
Now, as for TODAY: I've got a Doctor's appointment at 9.30 am, then I'm going over to Otahuhu to get a Christmas Present. Isn't the internet so cool, ya let your fingers do the walking and you can find what ya want without even leaving your home.
Only, I'm picking said present up so I don't end up paying postage.
After that I am coming home to get some housework done.
Well... I've been a busy bee this morning.
First up, at the Doctors. Got a 'bad' report on me latest blood tests. Have to 'up' the Metformin.
Next, we talked about 'the cough from hell' and the Doctor conceded that it MAY be caused by the blood pressure medication I'm on, so she has changed my blood pressure medication to see if it helps at all.
She's also prescribed two differing nasal sprays to see if they help too. I'm going to hold off taking them for a week to see if the change in blood pressure meds does the trick.
Ya never know.
I am having a chest x-ray tomorrow at Middlemore Hospital too... though I do think me lungs are fine. Just a feeling.
Next mission of the day was to suss out a new lap top for me. I finally settled on a new Acer, even though I had my mind set on another HP. But, as I've blown up me last two HP lap tops ... maybe a change was a good idea.
ABOVE: besides the lap top, I also got a two-fan thingee to rest it on, to help stop it over heating and a soft bag to carry the lap top in.
ABOVE: I found this cool thing on me travels too... for putting salad ingredients in (cheese, eggs, carrot etc). You can put ice in the black container under the white dishes and it keeps everything cool. I wish I'd been able to buy two, but I got the last one on the shelf. Still, that meant I got a good discount off the price!
ABOVE: Oh and I decided to get Steve to assemble my new craft desk last night. I couldn't wait! It's pretty cool.
So, that was me morning. Now I have to think about what to feed the family for dinner... hmmmm.
Ever felt like the gods are trying to tell you something? The new laptop REFUSED to turn on, so I took it back.
Seems its faulty!! No shit Sherlock. So... I'm sitting here in the shop while they get another new one out of the box and make it GO before I leave. JOY.
DONE. Home in rush hour traffic. *sigh* And we have to go back tonight to return all the boxing and paperwork for the faulty NEW computer. Which is fine as I still need to get a wireless mouse. I'm getting a blue one I think. Or it could be pink. There shouldn't be so many choices!
I didn't need to get a new mouse after all. Steve had my old pink wireless mouse and he gave it back to me, so yaaa.
End of Day: a good day in the end, I spent the evening watching TV AND blogging, like I used to. It's great.
