my dear friends a & s went to cairns recently and brought me back a lovely present. it's a grain of rice with my name on it encased in a cylinder and threaded onto a leather cord. it is a different and an unusual gift. i love it. but ... i was sitting down this morning to have my nice quiet cup of coffee before the kids and my cousin come for a visit and i picked up the wii controller on the coffee table and with it came my lovely necklace which dropped with quite a loud plop into my freshly made hot cup of coffee. i had a glass of water on the table so quickly fished it out and put it in that and took it into the kitchen where it is draining. i hope there will be no damage. i hope it's waterproof. it's similar to this.

it's been ages since i posted something. nothing too exciting has happened to post about i suppose. i am suffering from hay fever which i don't usually get. i used to when my vincent was alive. i didn't realise that i was allergic to cats (and lots of other things) until he passed. i gradually got over the hayfever like symptoms and didn't realise it until my friend Lan and my son were suffering and i was not. well, this year the symptoms are back with a vengeance. i even went to the doctor thinking i had 'flu. nope, just hayfever. i bought a nose spray the other day on the suggestion of my friend and it has improved a little bit.

Caiden, aged 3, went into his big bed today. he's so proud of it and we are getting him a bed rail tomorrow just to keep him safe. i've been busy in the garden today and got a fair bit done. i haven't seen the baby lizard the last few days which is unusual as it's been beautiful spring weather lately.
