I had my blood test .. the one that had to be spun and snap frozen. I have part of the result which seems to be within given parameters but a part of it had to be sent to Fiona Stanley hospital (our new government hospital not far from us). No explanation as to why but perhaps the laboratory I went to doesn't have the facilities to do the test. If I hear nothing by tomorrow I may ring them to find out what the story is.
To add to not only the medical stuff but the cistern in our back toilet sprung a bad leak and eventually I had Phil ring the Tap Doctor. We'd previously had the leak mended (twice in fact) so it was no surprise that we needed a new cistern. The week before that Phil had some work done on the car muffler and now our reverse cycle ducted airconditioner has broken down. It's just as well we've put off a few jobs we'd like done around the house isn't it? Have do the more important jobs first. Rang Derek (the wonderful man who has kept our aircon going over the past few years) and he's not available until next Monday. He may have a cancellation and I am hoping he does as we have 37ºC and 38ºC forecast for Sunday and Monday. (those temps are around 100ºF).
We do have an old R/C aircon in the lounge wall but it only cools or heats the living area and not the kitchen and certainly not the bedroom. We are fortunate right now that we had a couple of really cool days over the weekend and about 10mm of rain but it won't take long before the heat is with us again.
Sunday was a delightful end to the week when we once again met with the family down at Steel Tree in Settlers, Baldivis. We had lunch together to celebrate our oldest granddaughter's ..th birthday. It is always so good to see them and Phil and I both had grilled 'fish of the day' with chips, salad and tartar sauce and voted it delicious.
I just added a picture of one of our azaleas to bring some brightness into what was a rather dready week...unless until the Sunday which I guess made up somewhat for the rest of it.
