Today I am happy because I've had my hair cut and I have pink hair again - for the summer.

I had it dones yesterday, and liked it, but I was in a narky mood. Everytime I started to type about my hair I wandered off into something Mum had said or a moan about something else.

Far better to just be happy with my hair and think "Yippee!" every time I pass a reflective surface, which is how I feel today.

Mum was only saying the other day (when we saw a girl with bright pink hair) how much she likes your hair when you go really vivid.

just got a couple ice cream sandwiches from the ice cream truck, one for me, one for SonofV. Delicious! The chocolate cookie top and bottom were slightly crunchy, and the ice cream was firm. Just delicious!

I'll back that, Sundae! You go!

I'm happy today because I got some COOL stuff for my cowgirl weekend in Colorado, coming up in a few days ... my favorite is a very cool pocket knife, my first ever. I got the outdoor store guy to show me every knife in the place, tested them all, and got one that isn't over the top but very nice - two edges, nice release and fold, lightweight. And some other camping stuff I've always wanted but ex-husband never approved. So I'm playing with my new toys and feeling happy, getting ready to go herd those dogies :)

I had an appointment at the hospital today and the docs are very happy with how I'm managing my GDM, so I only have to test my blood half as much now. Only 2 pricks a day instead of 4.

orthodoc 07-24-2012 09:46 PM

All right! Good news, Ali ...

the fewer pricks in our lives, the better.

Seriously, I'm glad you're managing your GDM well and numbers are looking good. Very good news for you and the baby.

Aliantha 07-24-2012 09:48 PM

Thanks ortho. Things are going well, so under the circumstances, I'm pretty happy. I would just like to sleep for the last bit of a while. Unfortunately, the other grommets wont allow for that. :(

I am so happy the weather has been pretty good over the last week or so. It's great to have Max playing outside with the dogs and his bikes and stuff instead of cooped up in the house.

I can't get excited about a knife personally, Orth, but I am pleased that you are so happy.
Ali - way to go! Impressed at your resolve to do what's right by you & yours.

Went to see the kittens yesterday. All is well. One tiny nark - why isn't she using the room thermometer I bought her? She said they weren't sure how many layers the babies should be wearing in this weather. Tell you what love, plug it in, check the temp, refer to the enclosed leaflet which is BMA etc approved. It even says to add one more layer for underweight/ premature babies. Still I didn't say all that. Just gently suggested it might help. Her babies, her rules of course.

Went to The Mann Music Center last night with my 21 year old daughter. We saw The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra perform THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: SYMPHONY OF THE GODDESSES.

BigV 07-26-2012 09:52 AM

Although this cup of coffee doesn't rank with new babies, or going to the symphony with my daughter (or son) to hear a performance of game music, I am happy to have it. A bit jealous--no, tha's not the right word... I'm happy for my cup of coffee, and I'm really happy for my friends and the wonderful experiences they've shared. Those both look and sound sublime.


Lamplighter 07-26-2012 10:02 AM

V, sounds like you grabbed a different cannister to make your coffee this a.m. ;)


BigV 07-26-2012 10:19 AM

Maybe because you don't know me very well.

There's nothing better than a new baby. The meaning of the universe is and understatement. And hanging out with my not-so-baby children like Spexxvet described would be sublime. SonofV loves the music of his video games. He's been known to setup his computer next to his keyboard and step through videos of various game music themes trying to learn them for himself. If we attended a performance by the symphony of music from The Legend of Zelda, my place in the Dad Hall of Fame would be a lock. And just look at those tiny babies!!

Spent 4 hours with Tiger & Kitty today.
Family Fun Day in the Vale Park.
We've agreed we'll meet up when they have the Petting Zoo in Kingsbury (another free event) and possibly go to Oak View Farm together.

I've also agreed with Mum that we'll go to Wendover on Saturday as one of the deli's there is having some tasting sessions and I get a free glass of fizz. Mum had a voucher too, but she threw it away - we were given a lot of bumf for completing the Gemstone Walk and I read all mine carefully before disposing. We've already had free make-overs from my careful culling... I like Wendover, it's a pretty town with some of the independent shops I miss by living here. I expect to come back with some photos. And not having spent too much money...!

Some Tiger pics in the Aylesbury thread. I didn't even need to pixellate - I'm afraid the Sports Setting on my camera did not do as well as I thought when I looked at the photos real size.

Ahem. I mean I didn't do as well of course...
I don't think the BBC are going to be in touch for my skills at action photography for this Olympics anyway.
