Winter’s log, earthdate 201605.02

06.45 pm

OK, well, here I go – a quarter of an hour before the news and dinner! Talk about cutting it fine! We’ve been out most of today – we didn’t actually get to go looking at fish tanks and fishes today – because the doctor’s appointment was at 12.50 pm, it sort of cut the day right in half, so we contented ourselves with going to Doncaster (of all places!) because we had to get coffee, and pick up the Dry Cleaning (damn Daisy for only having two establishments! One in [censored] Port Melbourne, and one in Doncaster!)(and damn Nespresso for not having an outlet at The Glen, too!) so anyway, we went over to Doncaster and had lunch at The Shingle Inn – I’m rather partial to their BLT’s on Sourdough Bread, and their little cakes (which used to be called “Slimming Biscuits” when I was a teenager – because they’re not! (slimming)) are simply delicious… their coffee isn’t bad, either… I had to stop off at David Jones to get some waterproof mascara, and we needed to get some more Flipper Food from Woolworth’s, so we were there quite a while.

And I have some really good news for you all! 🙂 Tonight – in Draenor – I fly! Yes, I have less than half a bubble to go to get my “Revered” Reputation with my last Faction – The Order of the Awakened – and then I too, shall be able to soar through the skies of Draenor! I’m quite chuffed, actually! 🙂

11.33 pm

I can fly! 🙂 I can fly! 🙂 Izz wunnerfull! 🙂 Yanno, this might make Farming fun! Julian says you can go around harvesting trees without landing and getting off your (whatever you’re flying on at the time! At the moment I’m riding a lovely Golden Cloud Serpent I got in Pandaria! 🙂 )

But enough of my euphoria! I know you wanna know everything about yesterday and stuff – right? Well yesterday, Sunday, we spent most of our time in Draenor getting geared and psyched up to go Reputation Farming once the Dailies had re-set (they re-set every night at about 9 – 9.30 pm) and after lunch, we did (most of) Ahn’Qiraj – I think we died once, but neither of us can remember how or why (Julian thinks it was because we fell from somewhere very high – though that’s something we usually saved for Draenor, before we could fly!) We’ll have to go back there next Sunday because we haven’t finished getting all the bits and pieces we had to get – stone idols, and the like! By the time we finished that, it was right on dinner time, and then of course, after dinner, I was fretting to get back to earning my Reputation – which I finally achieved tonight! Yayyy! 🙂

I told Dr. B. about my sore arm today – she seemed to think that it might be Polymyalgia – which I hope to goodness it’s not! Not that there’s much that can be done about it, anyway, except for pain killers – wot I’m already taking for my arthritis – and a much more general “put up with it and shut up about it” – and that doesn’t sound like me at all! 😉 (if I didn’t have something to complain about, I’d be really upset and miserable, so I’d probably complain about that instead! *saccharine smile*) The long and short of it is that if it’s not better in a fortnight, she’s sending me off for blood tests! :/ I hope it’s better by then… I’m allergic to blood tests – and anyway, I need all my blood – just in case! 😉

Food stuffz: yesterday for lunch I had a lovely roast beef and relish sandwich, made with the extremely nice Baker’s Delight whole-meal bread with the sesame seeded crust, and of course, last night being Sunday night, we had omelets for dinner. We had bacon and chopped fried onion in it this time, as well as the usual Halloumi cheese, chopped tomato, and chopped green capsicum – and Julian made them slightly differently – instead of chopping the bacon and Halloumi into the usual little bits, he left most of it in bigger pieces for a change, and fried the cheese, onion, and bacon first, before adding the rest of the egg-y “mixture” – the resulting omelet was extremely nice, and I hope he employs that method again next Sunday night! For dessert I had a piece of cake, a beautiful big, fat (alright, “plump”!) almost juicy, date, and one of my Corella pears. Today for lunch I had my usual Shingle Inn BLT on Sourdough, and a delicious little cakey afterwards, with a long black coffee and a small jug of skinny milk. Extremely nice lunch, that! 🙂 For dinner I had a lovely little piece of fillet steak, with chips, green beans, and the usual half a store-bought tomato. For dessert, I had a slice of cake, another date, which was delicious, and one of my Corella pears.

Weigh-in yesterday morning. Was not pleasant! I went up – from 64.0kg to 64.2kg! I was most put out, because I hadn’t even started to take those ‘orrible little fluid-retaining pills yet! (I actually took my first one about half an hour later, after I’d finished my morning treadmilling!) I was seriously starting to think “Optifast” again! It’s really rather creepy and nasty, the way my weight plays these sorts of mean tricks on poor little me, because…

Weigh-in this morning. Was a completely different story! This morning I went from 64.2kg to 63.8kg – go figure, coz I certainly can’t! I really do believe that my wretched body enjoys teasing and tormenting me, like that! 😦 Talk about a yo-yo for a body! :/

And so to tomorrow – my very favourite eldest daughter will be over, and we’ll probably watch – not “Supergirl” – I think the last one we watched was the season final – or was that “The 100”? I fergit! However there should be another “Orphan Black” (it really is a great show!) and of course there’s always “Arrow”, and “Flash”, both of which are starting to get quite exciting. I’m hoping to be able to go and have a look at fish tanks on Wednesday, and possibly something on which to put the fish tank, and to find out a bit more about introducing new fishes to Auric and Dapple (both of whom were quite hungry this evening as I wasn’t here to feed them at lunch time, poor little babies!) They’re doing much better now that they’re out of that hideously filthy mud puddle under the water feature – which is now looking very clean and healthy, except that I noticed it had a whole lot of dead leaves floating in it this afternoon – methinks we’ll have to use the net to fish them out before they start rotting in there again… Anyway, that’s about it from me for this evening – ’tis now 12.36 am, and I think Julian is getting a little impatient for me to finish up. Do drop in again tomorrow night – there’s really heaps more to tell you, but once again I’ve run out of time – but you’ll be able to catch up on all of it tomorrow night 🙂 In the meantime, please try to bee good, don’t forget to learn from yesterday, live for today, and hope for tomorrow – the important thing is not to stop questioning, and remember to look after yourselves, to keep warm and dry in this changeable weather, and to always drive carefully – but above all, please remember to stay safe! 🙂 ciao, all! 🙂
