Thanks for your kind comments! My back is feeling much better, just some small twinges now.
Today was a surprise gift to myself.
Started off a bit disgruntled – had to go to Auckland to see a specialist for a second opinion about the knee story – all about wether work insurance will pay for a private operation or not… And instead of having the rest of week off I am now relief working – *sighs* I just cant say NO.
Still I tried be positive on my drive up and the specialist turned out to be a lovely woman who unlike the first specialist answered my questions in detail. I now know the tear in the cartlidge means I got a thing like a little flap hanging loose and that sometimes gets jammed between the cartlidges and causes the knee to ‘lock up’. Why couldn’t the first specialist explain this properly to me??? I dont want to be a genderist but somehow dealing with female doctors is often better..
But the best news is that she said she supports the operation idea!!! So hopefully that means they will pay!!! *crosses fingers and toes*
Sat in the carpark afterwards when it hit me ‘ stupid you, nvm work the next few days… today you are fancy free.. so babe, what you wanna do’? Off I went to the Northshore to check out the new NZ Scrapbook Shop. LOL this is me- the country bumkin who hates driving in Auckland- zooming across the city;p Found it no sweat – GO ME! Seriously stocked up on some much needed * coughs* glitter bazzil and plain cs and ok a few pp’s also;p Found out Trina had a free Fiskars class on at 7 pm, so I enrolled for that. Hopped over to the german bakery – a special treat – loaded up on some ‘proper’ bread- LOL -that is bread that is made of sourdough with rye and grains in it which actually requires you to chew it;p. Hit Briscoes and found some real groovy floorlamps dirt cheap – $29.95 down from $149.95 – gotta love a bargain. Got 1 for the lounge and another for Chris. All that shopping makes a gal thirsty so I dropped into a McCafe for some much needed Lattes which I leisurely enjoyed while reading the latest Up2Scrap. BLISS!!!
Then off to Trinas class , was fun seeing her and Andrea. Poor Trina had to put up with slowbie me still being very Fiskar’s challenged..LOL She’s such a pro at it and I seriously suck. *note to self* spend a few hours over the weekend playing with your fiskar cutters and photo copy paper until it ‘clicks’. Really enjoyed using the shapeboss – for embossing. I didnt used to be too keen on embossing but lately that seems to have changed. Arrived happily home with my cool Trina creation at 10 pm. Feeling all energized like I had a true ‘day out’. And proud of myself for making it so. Now why dont I do that more often?
Oh yeah and Scrap the Teenz has their new theme out. Scrap your teenz ‘soft side’. Jo and Liannes creations are gorgeous as always.
