|the corner tasted ok although it was super sweet. there's a face in there somewhere and it's just a little bit creepy. |

|the chaise lifts up for storage which is always handy|
|i didn't get this chair but would have liked to. it's a rocking, swivel and recliner in leather and it was on special. it came in black as well and it's small enough for my room. i'm tempted :)|

today I ventured out and walked through the rice fields. it was a long walk but very rewarding i took lots of photos and a video on my phone. wow too beautiful. the path was fairly easy to follow except when it narrowed and got a little bit steep. as i am really unfit it was a bit of a challenge but not too hard. i passed lots of tourist on the way and lots of locals. i stopped to talk to a man who sold me a coconut drink, he lopped off the top and put in a straw. it was very refreshing. he also sold beautiful oils but i didn't buy any. maybe next time. yesterday i tried to make the trip but it got a bit late so i turned back. i'm so glad i made it today. i will try and upload the video and the photos but they are on my phone and this is on my tablet. i'll try. the weather here is really nice, warm not too hot, food is amazing and the home stay where i am is lovely. the people are marvelous, so so nice. my friend may not be able to come as his mum is sick. maybe next time. i'm leaving ubud on friday to go back to kuta and catch up with some friends. yesterday I had the best massage I think I've ever had at golden hands salon. I can't find out how to add photos on the tablet, I'll keep looking.

monday - spent a lot of time at centrelink fixing up paperwork etc and rang up about volunteering at work and a local charity shop. dinner with friend.
tuesday - birthday lunch and shopping with maz. managed some washing and not much else.
wednesday - cookie's group are performing and i'm taking daughter and grandson. also fixing cookie's skirt
thursday - my cousin is coming over to drop off some more family (old) photos. i'm scanning them for her and backing them up to disc. she has thousands of photos. it may take me a while. :(
friday - doctor's appointment. i had a blood test the other day. you should see the bruise. nothing very serious me thinks. i hope i only have to wait ten minutes again and not the usual 1.5 hours.
anthony (g/son) may come back with me on wednesday. we'll see. i have no plans at this stage for next weekend or indeed next week. i'm sure that will change. i'm back to having nana naps. oh dear.

mike - is having his op today. i rang him the other day and maisie rang back and told me to stay away from mike again blah blah blah. you know, the usual. then i went to make a call and she'd left me a message saying 'get lost'. in that accent it's all a bit off putting. so, i haven't rung to ask her how he is doing after the op. .
liz is here for another week. we have been shopping a lot and i'm pooped. she's at her sister in law's for a few days. we are getting along famously. we actually managed to have lunch with mike the other day. he kept checking his watch and looking over his shoulder. lol. he's in good spirits and should have a short hospital stay and a good recovery.
my wonderful, amazing, fabulous and excellent coffee machine tried to commit suicide today. it made nasty noises and when i opened it the diffuser (or something) was at the opposite angle and jammed up under the water thingy. the inside of it was hanging out. when graham left i rang the repairer who put me through to head office and when i said it's dead isn't it, he surprised me by saying no it isn't. he said put the water tank in, put the drip tray back in and press the button. i'd done this fifty seven times and nothing but of course this time it worked. he said it needed reimaging or something. i made a coffee but i feel funny about it now. as if it's been in an accident and it might be damaged and i can't see the damage. you know i'm crazy.
also, i've been on the phone with the computer shop, toshiba and microsoft for about 4 hours today. i have a re install disc now so i'm happy about that. my computer is super slow and even though the tech. whizzed it up a bit it's still slow, esp. on the internet. ahhhh.
i'll go to bed early and try and get some sleep. i'm pooped :)
