The Southerly working it’s way up the country may have just hit. It’s been a cold wind most of the day, and now it is super dark inside at 3.45pm and grim and grey and wet outside. Really wet – it’s coming down fast and heavy and vertical. Makes me want to forget the rest of the things I need to do today and crawl into bed and go to sleep.
I’ve been plagued with a cough for about three weeks now. I had a cold and thought the cough was the tail end of that – except it went on and on and on and on and… you get the picture. After promising my pharmacist I would go to the GP if it hadn’t cleared up by this week, I got a GP’s appointment for this morning. And wouldn’t you know it, I almost felt normal again. Murphy’s law or what??! I almost cancelled the appointment thinking, yep it’s just a cold and it’s finally come right. However, I thought the 9.30 appointment may not get a chance to get filled by someone else so I might as well go.
I am so pleased I did.
While the symptoms don’t seem to be much at the moment, there are signs that something bronchial is awry. Possibly Atypical Pneumonia. I need to google that and find out what that actually means! So now I have some anti-bugs and some other dose of something else to help the lungs work. Dear oh dear. I do like to do things properly!! 😆 I’m going to start rattling while I walk soon I think!
But while I was waiting for the pharmacist to fill the prescription, I was wandering around the mall and found a new shop has just opened in the mall. http://www.kikki-k.com.au Swoon!!! This shop is full of the cutest note pads and folders and pens and stationery stuff. I had Mr 4 with me and he was playing on the floor with his gumboots while I was extolling the virtues of the next notepad I laid my eyes on. It’s like a giant stationery cupboard…. the coveting began when I used to be in paid employment and I’m sure it led me into the scrapbook habit. And now it’s come full circle. I’ve already pointed out to Mr 4 the cute bag, the neat pen and the notebooks (yes, plural!) that Daddy can buy me for presents. And of course I just HAD to leave with something….
I’ve been wanting a cute recipe file box forever and this is sooooo much nicer than the rolodex office ones people kept trying to steer me towards. So now all those recipes I have lying around will be neatly written up and filed safely away. The best thing too, is that if YOU give me a nice recipe, I can get you to write it out in YOUR handwriting and have that keepsake thing going on too. I might even decorate the cards if I so desire.
Of course, this will all be done from my sickbed…. gotta have something fun to do! 😆
