I wasn't going to post, coz I thought, nothing's really happened... but when I look back over the last 4 days - alot has really happened! To be truthful, I'm just feeling all a bit "blah". Just can't be bothered doing anything.
Saturday night, although still feeling pretty seedy from the food poisoning on Friday night, we went out to dinner, with our ops manager, his partner and some very good friends. I ate my grilled chicken, even had a cocktail (which I probably shouldn't have done!). I woke up feeling pretty ordinary Sunday morning, we picked the kids up from Mr T's sisters, and stayed for a while. Next, we went to an electrical store to spy out a new TV. Our treasured $200 TV from "the cheap shop" had bitten the dust (after 5 years!). Oh! The decisions! There was Plasma and LCD, there was Digital and High Definition, there was FULL HD and built in tuners! How the hell are you sposed to pick one?!!! We ended up snaggling a display model, 127cm or 47" LCD, FULL HD TV. It looked pretty big in the shop... but at home it looks ENORMOUS!!! It's pretty funny, really, people seem to think, that because we own our own business we are loaded. You wouldn't believe the amount of people that come round and say "Oh! You don't have a Plasma?" What the?!!! As if that matters?!!! I was more than happy with my $200 TV. Anyhoo, we got a bargain, (albiet substantially more than $200!) and have an enormous kick-a$$ TV, just to concrete everyones impression, that yes... we truly are rich! ...in debt!
Yesterday, was my good friend's birthday HAPPY 39TH BIRTHDAY, KARYN! Yes... now the world knows you're 39!!! All 6 of my readers! In the morning, after doing uniform shop at school, I went to a "Jelly Baby Month" morning tea. Jelly Baby month is to raise money for Juvenille Diabetes. One of H-Man's good friend's has Type 1 diabetes. From about 50 ladies, we managed to raise $1,600! Almost tripled the organisers expectations! Absolutely fantastic. I went home and flew through my house (cleaning) like Tassie Devil. Made tea for the fam, then got ready to go out to dinner. I took my "birthday friend" out to a China Earthquake Fundraiser dinner. We couldn't stay right til the end, but when we left, they had raised about $200,000!!! Holy guacamole!!! It was a very interesting night, put on by the local Chinese Community. We had a chinese banquet, and they sold raffle tickets and auction items. The Chinese Student Association, in our State, donated $9,000 on their own. I was absolutely blown away.
So it has been a very productive week. I hope that all the money raised for the different causes, is put to very good use, and truly makes a difference to someone's life.
