The Karate Kid needs to re-think about that. I have pain from the soles of my feet to my kneecaps, that's real solid pain.
I woke up at 7, couldn't sleep so I hung out the washing and I couldn't see the forecast of rain and 20 degrees as it was warm then.
Wrangled the usual convoluted phone call at 8.30.
Then I was off and walking. To the chemist to pay bills, collect pills, discuss mother's medication with the pharmacist, to the bus stop for Southland and all over the shopping centre.
I officially love Dick Smith Electrics. The mouse was replaced with the more expensive model with the adapter for the same price. I'm downloading mouse software to make it move from side to side and tilt, like that's not going to play havoc with a hangover. The little beast zips enough already. I had cursors doing aerobatics until I got control.
Not so happy with Medicare. To get a rebate on a $29 pathology bill for mother, I have to front up with photo ID which means going there again with my passport. There are new rules for collecting even with Power of Attorney, they want to know what you look like. I don't know why the pathology lab didn't bulk bill the way they usually do.
Really happy with Harris Scarfe and no deposit layby which means I will never miss another bargain because I don't have the deposit. I couldn't help myself, the bargain was really a bargain and it just leapt into my waiting arms and clung there like a fluffy bunny until I plonked it on the layby counter. A real bargain since it scanned $10 lower than the bargain price and no, I didn't tell them there was a mistake. I only look stupid.
Not happy with Target who gave me a raincheck on a DVD which JB HiFi now have at $3 cheaper. That was at least 4 weeks ago and if they didn't have it, why advertise it. Going anywhere Target sends me insane. Pages and pages in their catalogue but try and find anything in store.
Big W had rubber thongs for $3 and I bought a pair because by this time I was scraping the skin off the balls of my feet.
Anyway the forecast came true, it's cold and raining now.
