She ain’t heavy…

Okay so I actually went to Vit.alab today to check it out – I am funny like that. I have to give the place the all clear, before I will let them do anything between my legs – if you know what I mean! It is located just off a really busy intersection in Sandton, with a very obscure entrance and some interesting parking. I will try to get a pic the next time I go (Independence Day) so that you can see exactly what I mean! The actual place looks really posh, and the staff were helpful and friendly, so I have given it my stamp of approval.

I am gathering the last of my files and stuff this week in anticipation for my BIG appointment next week. I am so excited about it! I haven’t been nun-ish in my preparation, since that kind of approach has gotten me sweet nowhere in the past, so I have decided on a more relaxed angle. A bit of sherry here, a bit of wine there, not much exercise, and headache tablets when I need them. And a spot of acupuncture on the side 🙂 (Going again today, yeehaaa! I heart Dr. Debbie!)

In other news, the house is coming along, we are still painting and should finish in the next two weeks or so. We have also signed with the bond attorneys and the transferring attorneys, so everything is well and truly underway now. We went to Clarens on the weekend with the fam, and I bought the most beautiful hooks to hang in my entrance hall for coats, scarves, bags etc. Yes, my itsy, bitsy, teeny, weeny housey has an entrance hall! Amazing! Okay, it’s a really cosy entrance hall. The estate agents had a show day for the place we are renting at the moment, and they have asked 1.6 million smackers for it! Yikes! No wonder our new place seems so small! It is worth just over half of that crazy amount!

In other, other news, the job is going really well. I have adjusted quickly to working for a boss, and I am really enjoying the work. It is very creative and satisfying. Loving it, actually.

On a sadder note, please pop over to Tam‘s page and offer her some support. She got a BFN last Thursday on her first IVF. It is so heartbreaking, and I am sure she will appreciate any words of wisdom or encouragement, especially from those of you who have also suffered failed IVF cycles, and can really relate to what she is dealing with right now. Just remember that we don’t always have to be strong, and it is perfectly okay to be sad, and to look to others for support when you are having trouble holding yourself up. Lots of love to you Tam, I hope you see some blue sky soon. Your friend, Mands xx
