I Love My Mommy

Righto, a late post I know. But I've been furiously working this morning before this project goes live later. Now I have a little breathing space so thought I'd better catch you up.

Mom's had her Liver Biopsy this morning ... I haven't heard back from her yet, but at the moment she's probably had the procedure and waiting out the 3 hours at the hospital before they'll let her go home (in case of internal bleeding - eep!).

Nothing much else going on. The painting was done yesterday. I dunno if the new dude will be happy with it, but the way I look at it is, it's taken a month to get this far, it's time to cut your losses on this one buddy. And don't ever contact me again, that would be ideal :)

I sent my very direct letter to the Joburg Municipality, copying the conveyancer, the managing agents and the money-grabbing trustee basically saying here's all the documentation to back up the fact that I have already paid this money over to my body corporate (like a good little sectional title owner) now get your money from them and leave me be. Finger's crossed. Although truth be told I'm a little nervous taking on the system over 360 bucks. But it's the principal. I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who won't even blink twice at the acocunt and just pay it and the trustee will get her happy way of extra cash without anyone being the wiser. But I'm not one of those people. Especially not this week, anyway.

Things with Varen & I are good and things are looking good regarding the news we've been waiting for. In theory things should be more of an upward breeze after the news we got yesterday than the slog we were expecting beforehand. So I'm feeling more upbeat right now ... oh, and of course, because it's Friday :)

Fridays do wonders to fix things. Hope your mom is ok and that you get the results soon - the waiting is the worst.

Can't wait to hear what all this elephant talk is about.

@tamara & @sweets - I doubt I'll ever be completely open about the Elephant here on the blog ... it's a kinda private matter that isn't mine to discuss.

@sweets - am keeping my finger's crossed about the municipality ... but I think you're probably right ;)
