Just in case you missed my pretties while I was doing daughter duties here is David Gardner's 18k
gold necklace featuring a 27.43 ct cushion cut Sphene accented with diamonds. I could wear this anytime because I've discovered the joy of magnetic clasps.
I have been slaving at the Home. They've decided to outsource the washing and everything has to be named, not by pen either. Apparently that washes off after a couple of turns in an industrial machine. They'd like us to sew on labels. I'd like to tell them to f off and the only sew on label I've done is inside her favourite knitted jacket that I bought for $6.50 at the op-shop. Since now I've been appointed washerwoman in chief, I'll just keep using the pen.
I've just been to Southland and bought a new Television in the sales. I walked in, saleschild comes over and I ask for TV for Dummies. Am I going to use it for a computer screen? Saleschild hides his smirk at the fact that my CPU is so old it doesn't have a dvd burner component and I still have a desktop not a laptop. I finally kill him by telling him I still use a walkman. According to the child genius, yes, it will hook up the dvd and video player and hook into the arial I have. It looks great and when I get home I check the JBHiFi website and there are 7 fairly good reviews. I've already told the Saleschild I will come back and hurt him if things go wrong. On the way out, I go back and check that it has a remote control since I'm sick of carrying the cat across the room everytime I want to turn a channel. A remote would remove Abbott and Rudd from my sight in a flick.
I paid for some of it and mother has paid for the rest for my birthday. My sister snipped at this but I've since found out that she's asked for a new iPhone for her birthday and she can't use the one she's got. Her grandson and my great nephew is a year old next week. I can't believe the time has gone so quickly. I want a Time Lord to slow things down a bit.
Now if anyone is stuck for an idea for a birthday present for me, I'd like this necklace of Akoya pearls and a 16.47ct oval Tanzanite set in 18k white gold with a diamond and sapphire surround.
And don't forget the cake, all my favourite colours and sprinkles.
