I went to get my glasses fixed AGAIN. It wasn't my imagination. It has been determined that the groove that is ground around the lens was placed wrong and not deep enough. So they have ordered new lens for me. Will they get it right this time? The technician had the gall to ask me if I was handling them wrong. I informed him that I had been wearing glasses for 69 years. I then asked him how long he had been a technician. Five years. "Guess who has the most experience with handling glasses." I got an apology.
I had almost the same discussion with a tech over my glasses, it was the temple piece that kept breaking, he said must be twisting them to make it break...duh, without them I cant see why would I even do that. I told him I'd been wearing glasses longer than he'd been breathing air...

Well, we have returned from the shops, we were looking for a new slat bed and we are very tired as it was getting hot out there and we were looking around for about 4 hours!

Ater looking at sooooo many slat bed frames, we decided on a lovely bedroom suite from Harvey Norman.

We were originally only going to get the slat bed base, but we really liked this set!

Okay...it ended up costing us $1,200 all up including delivery, but it is lovely!

It was either $899 just for the slat bed base...or $1,150 for the bed base, the 2 matching bedside cabinets and a toyboy...oops I meant tallboy

It is made of pine and is in a cappuccino colour, so a nice darkish brown but not too dark..it is so wonderful!

Here it is

Robin 4 Piece Bedroom Suite

The best news is that they had one left in stock, so it is going to be delivered on Monday YAY

Kylie, I would say you got yourself a bargain. What a lovely set. I get the impression that over the past year you have been remodling your home. I know how excited you must be feeling right now. I can't ever remember any time my husband cared what I bought for the home. As long as he was confortable.

Today is the first anniversary of my Dad's passing. It is so hard to believe it has been a year. I am not sad today - not that I don't miss him, but I know that he has been at peace for a year, after three of hard suffering. He and Mom are together again (my personal belief), and watching down on us.

I was supposed to meet my sister at the cemetery to check the plaque on the rose garden where we laid Dad's ashes. The plaque contains the names of everyone who's ashes were placed in a calendar year so it isn't done until the next year. It was supposed to have been laid on Wednesday, but the bad rains we have been having delayed it. Mom's ashes were laid in the same garden 18 years ago.

So, it will be shopping and some more house work for today I guess. TB's last day before he goes back to work tomorrow so I also have to get ready for that - get meat out of the freezer for sandwiches (which I will make tonight), prep his uniform and fill his water bottle. I love doing these little things for him - he does so much for me.
