I was feeling better yesterday and perhaps two loads of washing as my only accomplishment for the day was too much for me. I am bumping into things today. But yesterday I tried to plan my wardrobe for today. It was a warm day after a cold morning and today it was cool all day. Choosing clothes is now very much of a chore. I had to wear something loose so I would not get stomach cramps and that meant none of the pants I would have preferred to wear. I had to keep my feet warm but I have no boots that are easy for me to put on. I had to leave that to deal with today but yesterday I planned to wear one thing but today with some distress I left the house looking pretty bad. See for yourself.

I lost a fair bit of energy washing my hair but maybe because of the rain, it ended up even fatter than yesterday. I still have not found a day I could tolerate going to the hair-dresser. It will come. One good thing happened at the RSL with my free birthday KENO ticket. Jan suggested I pick one number because the payout was better but the odds of just one number were slim. I picked 27 for my birthdate naturally and the number came up. I won $15 and gave Jan $5 because she was heading for the pokies. Karla and I went for coffee at the cafe bar.
The best part of the day was riding my new scooter up the street and back again. It was delivered around 4:30 along with a block of "White Bubbly" chocolate from the seller - Petra. She knew I was hoping to get it before my birthday. I enjoyed a little wind in my face riding along and for once I could talk to Flora out the front and not be thinking "I've got to sit down, I've got to sit down".
The nicest surprise of the day was a present from S which he hid before he moved out on Monday to go to Roger's after the hearing. It was nice because he thought of me in advance which is pretty rare. B phoned. He has fallen for HB and has no intention of moving back here. He still does not have a job but he is enjoying his break too. Not that he has ever really had to go too long without a break because of the bad seasons at work when they were told to take leave without pay. Apparently that is why he left when he did. His Widgee workplace lost a contract they were expecting and they were going to ask them all to take leave, which they did.
I can barely keep my eyes open so goodnight from the birthday girl.
