back..sort of!

Hello world! It's been so long - fully settled in, the dogs and myself are loving the new area and house, except for the colossal screwup about our internet - i am currently at the public library with only minutes left to send this to the world!

I am hoping to be back up and running net wise on Monday, and there will be much news!

Please, please leave me comments and let me know all is well - between the computer clock and the people getting mad at my loud typing, I really must go!

love to all xxxx

In the spider bite update: They still haven't healed. You can still hear me scream a mile away when Phoenix stands on my toe, which he does with alarming regularity. There's still a lot of pus, a lot of blood, and general nastiness. And then today...I noticed my toenail is about to fall off.

Oh. My. Shit.

keys, coughing and cheerio!

All I have to say is...ugh.

Chef and I are both sick, and in between wrapping a single plate or sticky taping a box, we go for a lay down and a whinge. It's not cool. We got the keys this morning, took the dogs for a sniff around, and settled the fish in. And then the landlord came over - he only looks about twelve, but he seemed really nice, and soon stopped looking terrified when I chastised him for not having curtains in the kitchen.

I'm still waiting for the big bang of leaving my 'home' for an entirely different one, and in such a different spot - it's a good 45 mins away from where I live now - and not knowing many people or the actual town. But so far all has been good. Probably the levels of cold-reducing drugs in my brain is making me all fuzzy. I'm stressing majorly over the fact everything isn't ready yet, and wanting to shove a fry pan up Chef's ass to get him into gear, but I'm hoping it's one of those situations where everything falls into place.

On that note, goodbye blogger land for a few days!

Shivering with excitement...and fever.

I've finally got a second to get online, as Chef & my dad are taking some of our junk for a drive to the tip. Yesterday I met my mum in the city, and after around half an hour, started feeling kind of crappy - sore throat, dizzy, racing heart. I ended up taking a train home, as although I desperately wasn't feeling up to it and wanted to take a taxi, I really couldn't afford it. Once I finally made it home, it really kicked in - nausea, unable to catch my breath, and shaking. Chef came home and realized how sick I was when I turned down glossy magazines and Belgian chocolate mousse. I managed to convince him I was fine for another 2 hours, before I collapsed on the floor and he rushed me to the emergency clinic. I flatly refused to go to the hospital (I don't do so well at the thought of needles) so luckily there was a doctor at the clinic until midnight. He read my temperature (39.8, whereas it usually sits at 36.6 due to a pre-existing condition) and gave me some antibiotics. I begged him to give me some sort of miracle drug, and basically ended up sobbing because we're moving house tomorrow, and there was no way I could be sick. I crawled into bed apologizing to Chef and hugging my hot water bottle, with three shirts, a jumper, hat, socks and fleecy pants, and 4 blankets. Man I was cold!

... and I woke up fine. Praise the Lord! Chef knew I was better when he woke to find me practically inhaling the Fererro Rocher's he'd left on the nightstand for me. I still have a rather sore throat and swollen glands, and am lethargic, but I'm so happy I can slob around the house realizing all the things I've forgotten to pack, instead of shivering in bed. It's all systems go for tomorrow (my 13 fish are moving house in the morning when we get the keys, and we're having a little puppy party with Sarah's dogs to get them used to their new yard, and having morning tea while we clean the house etc) and then Sunday is the BIG move. I am SO happy! I have waited SO long for this! The only downfall is our home phone and internet aren't able to be connected until the 12th, so I won't be updating the blog until then. I will be taking many photos in the meantime!
