Hi again, I've had a full day today. I started off well.... a trip to the Dentist!!! He did a root canal on one of my teeth and decided that it looked all cleaned out and did the whole thing in one go. It usually takes about 4 visits. It cost me over $600 which I wasn't expecting to pay. I will eventually get it back as I have a government scheme to help with a certain amount of dental because of my diabetes. The only issue is I have to pay it to the dentist first and then claim it back. They don't have any offices close to home so I need to make a special trip to put in a claim. In the meantime, I am out of pocket!
A quick trip with a friend to the Travel Agent to look into the cruise we were going on. The trip is now off because the Travel Insurance doesn't cover my friend for cancellation if her Mum is really sick or dies. She is quite unwell with several health issues already. They have a clause that if something is deemed likely to occur they won't cover the loss of money incurred if you have to cancel after 45 days prior to departure. You only lose $200 at the higher end of the days and the closer you get to departure, the more you lose until you forfeit the lot. If she had to cancel, then I would be in the same "boat" :(
The trip is now going on hold for possibly another year - we may go somewhere else here in Australia for a short holiday, but I don't want to end up spending too much money (still need to keep money for the other trip) and it can be quite expensive for air travel here. It is much cheaper sometimes to travel overseas.
The afternoon was better, I went to my Thursday craft group and enjoyed catching up with friends and doing some colouring of images for future cards.
Our daughter popped in after work and we went to the shops to look at dresses for her to wear in our other daughter's wedding in December. She is one of the bridesmaids and they are all going to have different dresses but in the same colour. We had no luck but I did manage to pick up a necklace to go with the earrings I already bought for me to wear on the day. That is another thing out of the way for me, just need some shoes, me thinks!!!
Anyway, after those momentous events, I will get on and share my card.
