Greetings- I promise we're not dead

We've had a bit of a rough patch involving the computer, schedules and even illness. Computer had to be completely re-hauled, a guy came out and put a new motherboard in but it still wasn't working properly. John ended up uninstalling everything from it, including windows 7, and putting it all back on. So far so good, I say.

We've been busy, and by we I mean he's gone back to work for the most part, which leaves me to play the sims and watch greys anatomy while cooking various things. Speaking of cooking, we still don't have an oven. They came to fix it Tuesday, but the part the company ordered was the wrong one. So much for making lasagne, eh?

And as for Illnesses, the ear infection I have been moaning and whining about for months has finally driven me to the point of going to the doctors. Which is awesome, because they took a swab of the inside of my ear and sent it for lab work, which in America would be instantly 300 dollars, plus the 200 of the doctor standing in the room.

hahah, it was freeeeeeee. All of it was freeeeeee. And then my perscription was 7.50£ but in American that would be 15 bucks. Rock on UK, rock on. So I don't have an ear infection persay, I have eczema in my ears. Isn't that fantastic? :(
So they gave me ear drops that make me cry when you put them in my left ear. And in a few days I have to call the office to make sure there aren't any bugs in my ear (Insert ewwww and WTF face here.)

But all in all we're ok. Our couches came, they're lovely. We bought super cheap ikea coffee table/endtables and they look awesome actually. My cupcake kitchen is fantastical (Minus the oven, but we don't like to talk about that.) and now we're just waiting on my NI number, which is like the UK's version of a social security number, and then I have to look for a job because we're actually rather poor! Ha!

On the 19th I'm heading to Windsor, not that I know where that is, for a spa weekend with Sarah and some of her friends from work. It should be a fantastically awesome time, and John insists I go, although I am a bit apprehensive seeing as I will know Sarah and no one else. But on the other hand, it's been years since I've had a real massage. So I do deserve it, for being so gosh darn awesome. Yes.

Sounds like John is done making breakfast, so I'm going to close this and go eat some eggs and toast. Hope all is well on that side of the world, miss you all etc etc more sappy crap here.
Maybe I'll log back in and post some pictures of stuff. Dunno what, but I'm sure I can find some. Heh. BYE!
