No rest for the wicked
Sunday definately not a day of rest for me!  Got up and did some more cleaning/tidying and washed all the clothes.  Went out to get some lunch and then did the normal grocery shopping (this is good because now I have some food to eat instead of being tempted to eat all the Christmas food before Christmas Day!!)
We also went up to the RSPCA to get some Christmas cards.

Came home and wrapped some presents. Had a shower and then it was time to go out.  Went round to friends Anita & Nic's house. They have just pulled up their carpets and the floorboards sanded and polished. Looks really nice!  We then went to the Dumpling King (yummy restaurant) and met Alisa & Barry and Simone there. I always have a Christmas catch-up dinner with my old school friends each year.

The food was nice and we had a bottle of sparkling red which I drank too much of!  We had the banquet which is always huge and I only ate a little bit of the main course.  But I still had room for my banana fritter and ice-cream for dessert. There's always room for dessert. It goes in a different stomach that's why. The dessert stomach.

Came home and pretty much went straight to bed. Woke up a bit lost trying to figure out what day it was and whether I could sleep in. Remembered that I still have to work for a few more days yet.  Then three minutes later the alarm went off.

Went into work and worked really hard and fast to get most stuff done this morning.  I have built up way too much flexi time again (too many early morning meetings. Another tomorrow and Wednesday yet to come!) and so to get rid of some of my flexi I came home at 2:00.  Yay!

Did a bit more tidying. Not much more I can do now though. Have to do things at the last minute really because most things if I clean/tidy now they will only be messy again by Christmas Day. Also had to make a few phone calls, the solicitor re our new house paperwork and the hospital to confirm my check-up appointment this Thursday.

Also rang the Monash IVF institute. We have decided instead of presents for Trent's family this year we are going to make a donation to the Fertility clinic. As mentioned in one of my previous journal entries Trent's cousin has been trying to get pregnant and had lots of troubles. So we figured this would be a good thing to do for Christmas. But when I rang up and said I wanted to enquire about making a donation the lady said "So you want to be an egg donor?"  Agh!  Nearly gave me a heart attack.  Not sure if my eggs would be much use to anyone anyway given my own history of "female issues".

Anyway enough of that stuff.  Mum is coming round tonight instead of our usual Wednesday dinner.  She wants to check out the Singstar games on my PS2.  Oh and did I mention Trent bought me another Singstar game? So now as well as Singstar 80s I also have the original Singstar game. Yay!

I think that's all for now

I often find it difficult at very good restaurants because the entree is so good and I can hardly eat the main meal! (Which is why doggy bags are so good! hawhawhaw...I'm a pig).
But I can see what you mean about dessert...
What? Two stomachs? Your anatomy of the human body is OBVIOUSLY distorted! pfft...:)

Yeah the place we went "The Dumpling King" has won lots of awards for their dumplings. And of course the entree was.....dumplings.  After all my dumplings I couldn't eat much of the main.
And of course there is a different stomach for desserts!
There's a sweet stomach and a savoury one. It's obvious!
