OK, first of all... I got another award today. From Wifey. You can see it at http://wifeoriley.blogspot.com/2008/11/i-have-been-inspiredor-rather.html (this way is easier for me).
I don't know who to pass it on to. Most of the people who's blogs I read already have it, I think. So I'm not going to bother passing it on to anyone in particular. You all have inspiring/encouraging blogs in one way or another. So, if you want it and nobody's given you one then help yourself. :)
Willow (my Mam's Black Labrador) is four years old today.
For those who don't know... We ALWAYS celebrate pet birthdays. The "kids" even get cards and presents.
We got her a new doll. Not the typical dolls you'd get for a human child. It's a "battle toy" designed to withstand rough play from a big dog like Willow. But it's made in to the shape of a doll.
I think she had a good birthday, but I haven't spoken to my Mam today, so I can't honestly say.
I "finally" got around to calling about an appointment for a new eye (is it just me, or is that a really weird sounding sentence? LOL!) They're going to send me a letter with an appointment date on it. Would have been easier for me if they could tell me now when they want me seen, but whatever!
They said they "haven't got anything for at least three weeks," but since I'm meant to wait another three weeks before my eye socket is fiddled with anyway that works out great.
I'm not sure which of "the girls" (their words, not mine) I'm seeing. I hope it's the one I had before when I had my other eye done. She was nice... A bit nosier than she should really be, but I liked her.
Actually, I should have still been seeing someone. These eyes are meant to be checked. I think they give them a good clean, make sure they're not getting too loose or anything in the socket... That sort of thing. But where I went to Canada all my appointments got dropped and it took until last year when I had to be rushed in to A&E to get appointments set up with any kind of eye doctor again.
I think it'll be a six monthly appointment (once my new eye is made).
I got all the Christmas cards written with my Mam, and Kelly posted them yesterday morning for me. The only ones not posted are ones I hadn't gotten yet and only realised when we were writing them... Like the card for Carl and Rachel.
And, of course, I've still got to get the cards sorted for the people who are actually nearby... Family and friends alike.
But almost every single card that's being posted is now on its way to whoever it's for.
I think I got everyone. If I forgot you then I'm sorry! If you were forgotten then it's nothing personal... It's a genuine mistake.
To all those "the other side of the pond" who have cards on their way from me:
Post from the UK to the US and Canada generally only takes a week or two. However, it can sometimes take a bit longer. So, if your Christmas card isn't with you on time then sorry. In theory I posted it in plenty of time. In practice... *Shrugs*... Well, it's not my fault if the postal service decides to be a pain in the butt. Just remember that - if I asked for your address - then you DO have a card on its way.
I can't think of anything else to write about right now. So I'm going to let this do.
Enjoy the rest of your day. :)
