Hot off the Press
Monday! The worst sleep ever! Decided to skip the DAC meeting, went to Osteo where I learnt the term “Firm but fair,” from the VU (Victorian University) lecturer Sue.
Was scooped up by my CM and taken home. Brief visit to supermarket where I always get looked at like I’m some child-molester because I’m with some much-younger guy. (Are people not aware I’m always with some much younger gay guy? At this rate, I won’t make it to midnight. Just so tired.
Tuesday, three appointments today. First were two fillings at the dentist which I bare-knuckled to avoid the injections. Didn’t manage to avoid getting a blue plastic drop sheet shoved over an offending tooth with a plastic ring over it which almost drowned me! (Seriously! Gotta be a better way?) it was all to make sure my filling could dry properly. Maybe I had too much saliva due to anxiety?
Next! Got stabbed by someone different, since my Dr Stanley was away. Last appointment was with my B-Team beautician. She does my waxing (calm down, just underarms) and lives a very short walk from home. She has a day-job and does waxing from home in her after hours. Even got a visit with Wilbur today!
Between all of my appointments I was able to return home for some chores, or I arrived early and used my time to make calls. It just never stops.
Wednesday! Seemingly a much more relaxed day today. Had a bit of a migraine as I headed to lunch and Chiro. Some of my more sociable plans went sideways, however made it home in one piece. Chiro reports still putting my ribs out! Made it home to do some admin and catch up on some TV.
Thursday, had a bit more of a cruise-day. Not had enough social/down-time. So, a great change lunch at a very local hipster cafe. Had some delicious calamari ‘thing’ with some delicious lettuce and green apple salad with aioli. (Note absence of Photo….Sorry. Missed breakfast Sorry I forgot, I was starving!) Medicine and dessert, a lovely chocolate ‘thing’ with vanilla and coconut ice cream.
Aunty Christine stopped by for a coffee before turning to show them both my new home! They both said their favourite room was my study! Reminder: Bookcases, desk, Vogue Livings… Oh, and possibly the best news out of Australia, for the day? Same sex marriage is finally legal! I can’t believe I might actually get to be a bridesmaid after all? I know more than my fair share of gay men! (Kidding about the bridesmaid’s part) but you know, we got there!
Friday, is it really here? Just gotta get through today and I’m off-grid. Still negotiating my afternoon carer for shopping and home are around midday! Had to swap the shift to a different service provider and I got a head start with my morning carer. Got shafted again! On My podiatry appointment, ended up solving the problem myself and booked a very basic service with my beautician. Costs slightly more but so much more flexibility and don’t get stuffed around with schedules.
Got stuck in the local German supermarket. Trapped is the word I used to my carer. You know, you get in that middle section, Christmas cakes right next to weird fish things, do you know the one I mean? It’s very local to where I now live and I’ve barely ventured there.
Received a barrage of calls just before 5pm for stuff that needed to be organised by then! I just love when people manage their day avoiding work! And I’m still trying to get my scooter shed put up!
And it is the one in a hundred times I didn’t save a useful phone number in my phone. I don’t know how I could possibly get more into the day. I’m finishing my admin after midnight! Next!
Saturday went a little differently this weekend. Was invited out to a re Italy. (You know I saw a band called Snog a month ago, so recital is rather foreign) the night saw me being collected around 5.30pm, driven to the Melbourne Recital Centre
Saw the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra Brandenburg Choir and it was beautiful! It was the Noel. Noel Christmas Event. And confess I heard the best version of the 12 days of Christmas ever or is it 7?? Rather than the standard version mentioning doves and such. His version included a scented candle smelling like cheese! Vouchers, a T-shirt with his face on it and a soap from Target he would never use, very humorous!
Had a small bite to eat beforehand and had a short walk to the car choosing to keep my host co pony on the walk rather than her walk alone. delivered to my door by 10pm.
Confess, I was rather underdressed for the putting as I don’t have a wardrobe for such adventures, but from the photo. I did my very best in my Tux T-shirt. It’s the best I could do.
Followed by a crappy night’s sleep (no idea why), Sunday included a short visit from my sister to collect plastic tubs my plants were relocated in a month ago and we exchanged Christmas presents as we won’t see each other before then. Made a conscious effort to clear my couch and the dining table. Still!
Ready for another big week! Sliding into Christmas. I’m not ready!
