Not been doing a lot of thinking....aloud or otherwise....'cos it's been bleedin' hot in Perth....36C yesterday and forecast 37C today. It will cool down a little during the week but I'd hoped next Friday would be cool as it's Phil's birthday and we are taking the family to dinner to celebrate. Hopefully the airconditioning will be working at Steel Trees. I remember one very warm day last year when it had failed and we were fortunate to be sitting next to one of those 'on the wall' aircons. The rest of the restaurant was very warm indeed.
Phil has been taking the Crestor (for his cholesterol) for a while now and I've not heard any complaints at all so obviously it suits him. People do complain that cholesterol lowering drugs can cause muscle aches and pains and my doctor swapped me over the Crestor a few years back. My only muscle problem is the one caused by the arthritis in my back and neck so hopefully Phil won't have any side effects. I guess, as with most medications only time will tell.
The family has decided to do Secret Santa again this year but they've reduced the amount to $50 per person. It is quite a good idea as you receive a list from one of the family members and then buy something of their choice to a total of $50. You wrap them items up and supposedly the receiver is not supposed to know who bought the gift/s. It does save a lot of thought about 'what shall I buy so and so?" Last year we didn't do Secret Santa and just gave gifts to the 3 youngsters. This year I thought maybe they'd decide to do that but no, Secret Santa it is going to be. Trouble is Phil and I can't think of anything we want. I guess at our age there's very little we need but I am hoping we can think of something as K needs the lists this weekend so she can email them out.
