Clocks…

…Because I can see four – no, five, from where I’m sitting (six, if you count the time and date thingy on the bottom right hand corner of my computer!) 🙂 And also because I couldn’t think of a title for this post… again. We’re listening to some lovely Chopin at the moment… very stirring and evocative…

Hey! Wasn’t it a totally brilliant lightning show last night! The thunder was pretty awesome, too 🙂 I love thunderstorms! I reckon we don’t get enough of them down here in Melbourne… We went to bed around 12.30am – 01.00am, as usual… I thought I could see faint lightning flashes out of the corner of my eye, and by the time we put the lights out it was a full on storm! 🙂 Fantastic! Some of the flashes were so bright that even after the initial flash, the sky near the horizon looked like daylight! Then it rained… or maybe it was hail – dunno… but it sure rattled on the windows – we were a little worried that it might have upset Flipper, but we didn’t hear a peep out of her, and she didn’t seem too distraught this morning, so she probably slept through it, or she would have started yowling. I guess that’ll come tomorrow when himself gets down the cat box to take her to the V.e.t. (we can’t say the word out loud because she runs and hides!) – we found a little lump on her side, which we think is probably just a fatty cyst, as she’s had one on her tummy for years, but we both think it’s best that we get it checked as soon as possible.

We had a friend come over this afternoon, and it was great to see him again, so hopefully it’ll become a regular event. Then in the evening we sat and fretted until we heard from Terry, my favourite youngest daughter’s husband – she was having a minor procedure done today, and like all parents, we worry about our children, probably unnecessarily, but there it is – we do. 🙂 She rang later in the evening, home again, and sounding very happy and relaxed, so now I can start re-growing the fingernails that I chewed down to the quick this afternoon 😉

All in all, it was quite a busy day – for us 🙂 Not sure what’s happening tomorrow, apart from Flipper’s little “trip in the car”, but after I heard from Kate this evening, I went and re-organised the Rift Guild Bank, to make room for all the bits and pieces that the Minions are bringing back – that’s taken me all evening, actually – I’m a bit of a neat freak (sometimes!), and I like things organised and easily visible; I tend to get frustrated and irritable if I have to hunt too hard to find something. As out grandmothers used to say in the good old days, “a place for everything, and everything in its place” – not a bad motto to live by – what a shame I often forget it! 😉

Weigh-in this morning was …better… back down to where I was two days ago (*glares at screen*), at 120.9kg. Why my stupid body had to go and waste two whole days (*glares at screen again*) going up the way it did, I don’t know! That’s two days lost, out of my very careful and meticulously planned schedule (*sigh*) Oh well, hopefully it’ll be down again tomorrow… I accidentally missed out on afternoon tea this afternoon 🙂 and by the time I realised, it was almost dinner time and too late to have it, but I wasn’t hungry, so didn’t really care all that much – I just hope that my metabolism doesn’t think “Oh noes! I’m being starved! Perhaps I’d better save all of dinner, just in case I never get fed again!”, and I put on weight again tomorrow!

Will I won’t I? 🙂 Stay tuned to find out…
