Wow! its been a bit of a stressful week here. First the shocks went in my car :( and I had to drive to Brisbane (about 30km away) and it was terrifying the whole way there and back. Secondly, a very dear friend is going through the most awful time that I wouldnt wish on anyone. That was Sunday.. then Monday I broke a tooth.
I have a really dreadful fear of needles and going to the Dentist just about does my head in. But I put on my big girl pants and went on Tuesday and got the tooth fixed and vowed and declared to come back and get the other things done that I need to do. The dentist was fantastic and they have the most amazing numbing gel... didnt feel the needle at all. I did feel having to pay for it though - OUCH!
Then today I got even more brave and had a Swine flu jab. I have never had a flu jab or any other needles that I can avoid... hmm... last tetanus was 20 years ago... So Im feeling quite proud of myself for facing my fears (which are real to me, if not others). I had the swine flu jab in front of my darling Bubba who is due for her 4 year old jabs so had to be brave. She distracted me by pooping her pants !!! Unbelievable!
Anyway - its all done now and I have a huge list of blood tests to have done next... EEEKKK!! more needles.
Now Im off to finish a cake for a three year olds birthday tomorrow... a train.
Back later with an ABC canvas I have just finished for my baby girl.
