Today was fairly busy and the weather was awful again.
Both kids had appointments in town and then Lucy had an eye test at Specsavers. She is short sighted so has to get glasses, she tried on a couple of pairs but she thinks she either looks like a man or Harry Potter! So we will go back again another day to see if there are any more she likes. I think she looks very intelligent in them and much older.
I also got Jono a coat from Elverys which was half price. I’m delighted to see HMV is coming to Sligo. They are going where Zavvi was in Johnston Court and are meant to be opening over the weekend.
I entered a competition yesterday on www.boards.ie to win two tickets to the ‘ toys for big boys’ exhibition which is on in Dublin this weekend. I was delighted to get an email today so say I won. So myself and Jono and going up on Saturday. I tried to talk Lucy and Andy into coming with us but they are going to stay at home. I’m really looking forward to it. I love gadgets and there is also a dalek, cars and even a pamper zone for girls so all in all it should be a good day.
The hospital didn’t phone me yesterday but they called today. They are saying the surgery wasn’t cancelled because it wasn’t an ‘official’ date. I said the consultant gave us the date so I considered that official and therefore considered it cancelled.
Anyway they were on about swine flu and emergencys and said they hoped to fit Jono in before Christmas and will be in touch in about 3 weeks to let us know if there is any date! So we will wait and see.
