May has arrived - and the lovely Autumn weather of Brisbane is glorious to behold. Cool but sunny and no rain - wonderful.
"Received" an early birthday "gift" today (my birthday is the 4th) - trip to the dentist for what I had hoped was simply a lost filling. Turned out to be a crack through the tooth and so I now have one less tooth for the brushing (recovery will take a few days and I am currently very propped up by the pharmacy-grade pain meds). It was my upper right back tooth so it's loss won't interfere too much with my life.
In other actually GOOD news - I have a job interview on Monday for a Library Assistant's position. So if you can spare some good thoughts - please wing them my way.
Oh and I have heard from my new Soldier's Angel adoptee. Mike is a clever, articulate and dedicated member of the USA Army. He's has a wonderfully good sense of humour and we have been exchanging emails since I adopted him. So very glad I have 'met' him [so far a batch of goodies have been sent off to him - he's received the small batch of Aussie cookies & candy (no no musk stick - I am being nice!) and a plush kangaroo toy he has named "Jack"; and I sent him a copy of the movie "Finding Nemo" (we have been joking about that since my introductory email explaining that I live "half way between the Reef and Wallaby Way Syd-e-ney"). Girl Scout cookies are also on their way to him]. He is very much a ray of sunshine in my life - making all the uncertainties of lack-of-job fade away whenever I chat with him. So very glad I found Soldiers Angels five years ago (almost to the day actually - it was my "Pay it forward" Birthday gift to myself five years ago and never once regretted.)
Now to get over the extraction and be all smiles come Saturday. I am having lunch with my Parents and haven't wanted to worry them, Wish me a speedy recovery! :)
edited to add - lol someone just asked me if I have a "wish list' for my birthday. I do but I don't expect any gifts - your all-abiding love and support are all I need [but if that's just tooo freaky to contemplate - here's my amazon link - http://amzn.com/w/1EUHNLL1YFLO ]
