A post two days in the making but really about nothing much

Ok as most people know I watch Sunrise of a morning but you know what annoys me is when on days like today they have a special broadcast and repeat the same news over and over again I get it Cyclone Debbie is big news she will be destructive and will affect the lives of many people but it is still somewhat annoying.

It is now 315pm and I am at last getting back to the computer, this morning I had to go to the chemist to get Leo's Webster pack for school and of course take it to the school for him, I also bought more ice cream for him and this afternoon Tim went mad because I let him have ice cream this morning after his cereal, whatever Tim I don't care what you think about this I said it was ok and I am the one here with him.

When I got home a few minutes ago I got distracted and nearly reversed the car into the house,and of course Tim went off but I said didn't hit anything, didn't do and damage so get over it, I was listening to Blain and his friends and not taking any notice of what I was doing.

Blain just walked in his mum rang him and told him he has to be here when she gets here,she annoyed or angry about something and wants to talk to him face to face.

Leo had his school photos done today and said he isn't in the class photo as he wouldn't behave or something. I hope that isn't the case as his mum paid $40 for the school photos.

Ok started this yesterday morning, came back to it yesterday afternoon and now it is Wednesday morning and I am back at it, just got distracted yesterday afternoon and didn't get it finished, this morning there is more news about Debbie but at least there is other stuff on Sunrise and not just Debbie, people are being told to stay home and not go out if they don't need to. Debbie lasted all day yesterday and into last night, it is being reported as one of the worst cyclones to hit Queensland in a bloody long time because it lasted for so long, thankfully none of my family live in the affected areas. At the same time they say it wasn't as bad as they thought it would be it was only because it lasted so long that it is considered so bad.

Of course they are saying that the price of tomatoes and bananas and sugar will rise because of the cyclone.

I have increased my exercise workout of a morning from 60 minutes to this morning 80minutes and of course I am doing them 7 days a week.

Mum saw the specialist about her hip replacement yesterday she is now on the waiting list for the surgery the doctor said the wait should be around 9 months which is what both her and I thought it would be. She also said when he was examining her that he hurt her a lot she was nearly in tears as was my sister Sue who took her to the hospital, Sandra was unable to go with her due to the time of the appointment it was in the afternoon and Sandra had her daughter she had to get from school.

There is a plan to pay people to adopt children the reports are that people could be paid up to $35,000 per year now this is new for Australia but it is something that has been around in other counties for a while well that is what they said on the news.

Well now I am going to post this rambling post this morning at long last.

I guess that the people not affected by Debbie can get tired of the news on her, and those who need to know prolly have no power to hear it.

Had to look up Webster Pack. Got it.

A lot of times exams involve painful "groping" of the area. I had a neck goiter once and the specialist didn't know how close he came to fitting through a very narrow window in the exam room.

I love that you get started on a blog post and then get distracted, sometimes not getting back to it til the next day because that is so me!

A friend of mine had her hip operation today, this afternoon to be exact, she is in private health so didn't have to wait.
Hope your mum can get in before the 9 months as that's a fair time to have to wait if she is in lots of pain.

The cyclone - no one has lost their lives, so that's good news on a devastating subject.

It's like that here too...whenever some major weather event happens, the news takes over the regular programs.

Nine months is a long time to have to wait when a person is in pain. That's too bad that it takes so long.

Yeah mum was in so much pain Tuesday night because of the appointment but accepted it had to happen to be examine the doctor needs to know what he is dealing with

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

Nice to know I am not the only one who does that

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

Mum expected to wait up to a year for the operation being a public patient that has to be expected, she is in a great deal of pain as the bones are bone on bone but as mum said the time will go past at the usual speed and she is taking it one day at a time

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

I know happens whenever there is a major event all you get is the same reports over and over about it. Yes nine months is a long time but when you don't have private health cover and go through the public system it has to be expected, at least it will not cost her anything money wise

Debby said...

9months? That's awful. Your poor Mom. Then when she gets it, she'll have the recoup time. I wish her allthe best.

The news does that here too. You can watch it for one hour and get everything you need. Even an hour is stretching it.

I looked up your area and the cyclone area. Glad you are all safe.

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

Thank you yes 9 months is a long wait but we expected it to be that long. I think most countries repeat big news events over and over till people are fed up

Update on mum

After getting up this morning and throwing a load of washing on to wash I get a phone call from Sandra just as I was thinking of ringing...
