They TorT in the mall here, too. The facility sends a contingent of staff and residents to hand out candy at the mall. It's for the middle schools kids, mostly.

Sitting here drinking rum (I usually don't imbibe in distilled beverages, I don't handle them well, but got some bad news today and have nowhere to go but to bed). I'll go to be well before inebriation and will make it to my therapy (water exercises for my hip) tomorrow, I'm sure.

Today I took the car in for a big service and tune...I was told the battery needed replacing and the 2 front tyres needed replacing too...so we decided to get 4 new tyres which I have booked in for tomorrow

Also we had the battery replaced, so that is good!

The car is running nice and smoothly again now, so happy days

Sometimes you just have to say what the heck & have a slug of something, then crawl under the covers. I noticed you didn't take a book with you -- must be serious. Feel better soon.

1-2-3- Are We Awake?

It's just dawned on me 30 minutes ago that today is Thursday.

Thursdays are my day off. I'm not available to anyone for anything unless they're actually bleeding to death. Then they have to show me proof.

Woke up by 7am. First thought. Get dressed, damn it's cold today.. brrrrr...
Fine get going with the day. Hubby's breakfast and lunch made, packed.

Got laundry started in between all of that. I was wondering why the cell phone alarm didn't go off. Hate that annoying tone. Assaults my ears. Looked at the clock on my comp.... Awwwww craaaaayaaap! It's THURSDAY!!!.. rechecked the other clocks around the house.. Double dang me!

I could have slept in. Wake up get dressed if I felt like it.

So great, it's a "Luccccyyyyy Day" again. Good mornin' Munky!!!

Just got up from a long "nap". I got sent home from work because I was sick (migraine) and was more hindrance than help. They didn't smack my bum for being stupid and coming in, but they should have.

Driving in freezing rain is no fun. Driving in freezing rain with a blinding migraine is no fun and borderline stupid!

Better now, snuggled up with a kitty and a cup of coffee. Thinking I might bake something cuz it is snowing pretty hard now.

Going to do some ironing now..already done all the washing and soon I have to go to the dentist and then to take the car up to get the 4 new tyres put on

Mum is coming around for a visit this afternoon which I am looking forward to as she has been away in Queensland for 2 weeks and I have missed our coffee and chats
