sick, again!

November 28, 2007

I saw a doctor today as I have been coughing, a lot, for the last 11 days, and it seems I have a chest infection! Bloody hell. She didn’t want to give me antibiotics because I had them about a month ago for tonsilitis but she gave them to me because I have an infection in my lungs. I’m so sick of being sick. And I returned the crutches that I borrowed for my sprained ankle (which I did at the end of the tonsilitis)! It’s still a bit sore and I’m a little worried about it when Paul and I go out dancing on Saturday night to a club but I’ll just have to sit down when it hurts.

Tonight we’re going to see the Masque of the Red Death which I’m very excited about. It sounds amazing. I hope I don’t cough too much, but if I do I’m hoping it will add to the whole plague theme going on.

Change of federal government in Australia

November 25, 2007

As soon as I got up on Saturday morning, I jumped on the internet to check the Australian election results and was very happy with what I saw!
Happy birthday to me!
[this is me looking happy!]
Considering that the out-going Prime Minister, John Howard’s politics are the complete opposite of my own, I’m happy to see him gone. Let’s hope the new Labor government will be a more caring, just, and honest government than what we’ve had for the last 11 and a half years.

Good-bye to my sister

November 21, 2007

Saturday was my sister Nicky’s last day in the UK. We went into town and went to the National Gallery and saw some Van Gogh and Degas paintings.

Nicky came with Paul and I to Australia House to vote in the upcoming Federal election. I was excited about going there because it’s where Gringotts Bank in the Harry Potter films was filmed!
(The photo is from the Harry Potter Lexicon.)

We went up to Hampstead but didn’t really have time to go to the Heath but we had lunch in a pub and got a double-decker bus back down into town. Nicky enjoyed catching them about town – they’re a good way to see London.

We went to Heathrow Airport with her and it was very sad saying goodbye – we both cried. Then I cried a lot on the tube on the way home.
