Things are very different at our new Medical Centre, compared to where we went in South Auckland.
For a start, we don't see the Diabetes Nurse every 3 months, here it's once a year.
And you have to pay! Clearly, living in South Auckland had some benefits.
Not so in Cambridge.
Oh well... I suppose it's the trade off for living in such a nice little town.
Today I am seeing the Diabetes Nurse for my 'annual' check up.
Not sure what it entails. Suppose I will find out eh? *smiles*
Once that is done, I'm coming home to hang out the bloody endless amount of washing we generate. Then I hope to do some sewing.
Cute little bugger.
ABOVE: I went into Keera's room yesterday morning to see if she was awake. Found this. The dogs really like this kid.
It is SO LOVELY to see her so happy, it really is.
And on that note, I'm outta here. Got stuff to do.
12.59 PM: Well my Diabetes check up was ... well... so-so. Certainly not GOOD. My HbA1c count was 66... the highest it's ever been.
So. As we all know, and I DO KNOW, it is totally up to me to turn it around. I've just got to want to be bothered. Cos, seriously, I'm NOT bothered. There is no excuse. I'm in a rut. So, what to do?
Well for a start, I'm probably going to join an Aquasize group being held out at St Peter's College twice a week. And I will make a start on better diet.
Next... booked Keera in for her 4 year old 'Before School' check up, and immunisations. That's on Friday afternoon. Something tells me she ain't gunna be a happy girl after the injections! Time will tell.
I also picked up an Enrollment form from the local Primary School. She's in zone for Cambridge Primary school, so that's neat. It would appear to be a lovely school.
Now that I'm home, I shall have lunch (a lettuce leaf?), then continue with the washing. It's being rotated through the dryer as it's been raining on/off all day.
ABOVE: "No I'm not tired Grandma"... said no one in particular.
Quiet evening, some good telly on tonight.
But, heading off to bed soon... trying to kick my habit of staying up till well after midnight.
