Today I ate breakfast in the lounge at 7.30 while watching a program on the Bio channel that Bruce had found and thought that I'd like. He was right! It was called 'Coming Home' and was a half hour version of 'Who do you think you are', and this episode featured Patrick Mower. I looked up the Bio channel on the internet and found the program has been running since November 17 with repeats on Thursday morning. Damn the fact that Optus don't give us the option of a program mag any more...I miss so many good shows with this 'hit and miss' business! (I really hope Santa brings me some 'Who do you think you are? ' DVDs).
So any way, how decadent eating breakfast in front of the TV! lol
My younger daughter has just realised that the 'procedure' she is having tomorrow (I have to get her there by 6.30am) is not covered by her health insurance as she doesn't have hospital cover. She reckons she didn't know it was private...is she naive?? She went to a specialist in a specialist centre, she was booked into a private hospital...sigh... She has dipped into her savings for half the cost and yes...you've guessed it, I agreed to pay the other half. She'll be fine; it's a routine procedure and it's day surgery so once the anaesthetic wears off she'll be fine! And it's all done, not waiting around for months going through the public system. Bruce and I know how important it is to have full health cover especially at our age. It's not cheap but the alternatives can be scary!
Our little vegie patch. With the warm weather many of the lettuces and Asian greens have gone to seed. Should be lots of little seedlings around in the New Year. The tomato bush on the left (just out of range of the camera) has fallen off the stakes because of the amount of cherry tomatoes on it!
