Kelly got our heat working today. Not really sure how he fixed it, but he did. Maybe one day we can actually get the maintanence people out to fix it properly? Yeah, I didn't think so either. LOL!
Had an appointment with my eye doctor yesterday (Thursday). Saw a doctor who's known me since I was about a week old. Half the doctors and nurses there seemed to remember me, so I started joking that I was as famous as Harry Potter. LOL! I know I'm not, but when all those doctors and nurses were remembering me I felt like Harry Potter when he first entered the wizarding world and found out he was famous.
Anyway, he's given me some eye ointment stuff to use as well as all the drops because I'm still getting some pain in my eye (and inside my head just behind my eye). I'm supposed to use it as and when I need it, but at least a couple of times a day. Hasn't helped so far, but it's only been a little over 24 hours, so I can't really pass judgement on how much (or if) it helps. Either way, I've got an appointment to go back and see him on May 15th 2008 at 11:15 am.
Still really cold here, but no sign of my snow. They're now saying I'm not going to get any until some time in February... *sigh*... Oh, well, can't really be helped. We have had LOADS of rain and strong winds, and even a bit of sleet and hail, but no snow.
Our Sky box keeps playing up, and between that and the bad weather we're not getting to watch much TV. Where the Sky people say the dish has to be to get a good signal the wind and rain keep knocking out the signal. We're getting fed up of paying for channels we can't watch though, so we're getting a Freeview box. It arrives on Monday. At least with a Freeview box the aerial can be indoors so wont be affected by the weather (unless there's a power cut, or a really bad storm, but that's different) and although we'll end up with a few less channels, we wont have to pay nearly £50 a month to be allowed to watch the channels we will get.
For some reason the rice milk seems to be making me sicker than the normal milk was. We have no idea why. All we know is that I spent the last few days not too well, and a few times was actually sick. Haven't had any of the rice milk today and I've been feeling fine. Perhaps, as LadyStyx said in the comments section of my last blog, the problem is something else? All I know is during the days I used the rice milk I was sick, and when I stopped drinking it I stopped being sick. *shrugs*
Can't remember if I mentioned in my last post that my new audio books and DVDs arrived on Monday. The audio books are, as you may remember from a few posts back, "Marley And Me" by John Grogan, and "Fairy Dust" by Gwyneth Rees. Haven't started listening to them yet though, because I'm still listening to "Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows" (which I've almost finished listening to). The DVDs were, a movie called "Double, Double, Toil And Trouble" and the first season of "The Simpsons" (yes, the whole first season). Not watched them yet either.
I think that's just about everything I was going to post about. Time to go catch up on everyone else's blog posts, I think.
