Yes 100 people have viewed my journal! And very fascinating it must have been for them too. hahahaha
Thursday night we went to inspect one of the new townhouses across the road. Not to buy, we could never afford it. Just to have a sticky beak. The bigger one at the front was quoted at $680,000+ and ended up selling for $810,000!!! They are also quoting $680,000+ for this one that we looked at, even though it's smaller and is the middle of the three townhouses. It is lovely inside though. If only we were millionaires!
Friday night I went to one of my work Christmas parties. This one was for the big department that my small department is part of. It was OK. Not very exciting though. A few people were quite drunk which was kind of amusing but no-one did anything scandalous, much to my dissappointment.
I gave Kathy a lift back to her house and got home around 11:30pm. Trent was still up playing Civilzations IV. I went to bed and Trent was still on the computer until 1:30am when there was a power black-out. Don't know what happened but the whole street was out. Trent came to bed, then around half an hour later the stereo in the bedroom decided to switch itself on and started making weird noises!
Woke again a few hours later with a cramp in my leg. I haven't had one of those for years. I used to get them quite regularly when I was younger though. Man they hurt! At this point I also realised that all the clocks in the house were flashing because of the blackout. I got up and put my mobile phone by the bed so I would know what time it was (at this point it was around 4am)
Got up Saturday morning and went to the hairdresser. Thank god! No more grey roots! Did a bit of Christmas shopping. Got Muppets Treasure Island DVD for my little half-brothers. Went househunting. Only saw two houses. The first one was horrible. The second one was absolutely lovely but is bound to be over our Price limit. Poo!

C'mon AC,I can't believe you have grey roots!i've got a sort of a starting to grey at the temples thing going on that a man can get away with,the lucky things.I get blonde streaks so luckily it blends in O.K.-i flatter myself,haha.If the cramps get you again get stuck into some magnesium capsules-that might help.Also maybe some more salt in the diet might do the trick.Just what you always wanted -unsolicited advice .
Haven't heard of the magnesium one daftbird. Maybe I should give it a try. See my next journal entry (the continuation of this one) to see the stuff I did try for the cramps.
Regarding the ol grey hairs, I'm afraid I started getting them when I was only around 16. I think if I didn't dye my hair it would be almost completely grey by now (my roots are). And me just a youngster of only 29yo! It's a crime against nature I tell you! hehehehehe Both my parents went grey pretty young so I guess it's in my genes. Stupid genes!
hmmm can you get magnesium in any foods or does it have to a tablet or supplament or something? I sometimes have trouble with indigestion and take soluable Mylanta for it. I'm pretty sure that has some kind of magnesium in it???
This might please you-it's in chocolate!Probably why i used to eat copious amounts of it at one stage-body was desperate for it.It's in almonds.I just can't hink what else at the moment.i take 600mg a day of it in capsules.Maybe not a coincidence that you get indigestion as the body needs magnesium to help make the stomach acid in the first place...or in fact,it could just be a coincidence.It could be any reason at all!
