We are back at the beach after 2 days. I picked Chris up at the Pioneer mill and we came home but stopped in Townsville to try to find the last remaining pieces of furniture that we needed. The stores are open till 8 on Thursdays (woo hoo) so instead of wasting a Saturday driving in we thought we would try this approach and we were successful! We found a little round glass table and chairs for our eating area and an outside table and chair set that was marked down so we did well and the good thing—-they will be delivered Tuesday!!! Yay!!! None of this long waiting!!! All we really have left to buy now is a mower and maybe eventually another bed but for now we will just keep the one the owner left for when Aaron and Thom come. For as much as we will use it we don’t want to put the money out for one that will never get used.
Last night we went to one of the restaurants in Ayr for dinner and had a really good meal. I had pan fried barrimundi which was yummy and Chris had surf and turf which he said was yummy too. The thing we saw that I had to comment on was a gentleman who came in who was probably in his late 50’s and nicely dressed except………..he had on a pair of capris!!! Now I don’t know what you men out there might call pants like that but to me they were capris and did not look like something any man should wear. Am I missing an upcoming fashion trend or what??? Do enlighten me if you know about men wearing capris!!!!
The satellite tv saga continues—–they called me today and were sending out a technician today despite the fact that I told the guy yesterday that I would not be home today!!! I told him Fri, Mon or Tues would be fine—not Thursday!!! So of course she hemmed and hawed around and said that they would have to do another booking in order to get me bumped up on the schedule which makes no sense because I already had a booking and was here and they did not show!!! But regardless she insisted that this was what had to be done and that they would move me up on the list but the earliest she could book me was Nov. 18th…..now bear in mind that we scheduled this back on August 9th. So I do not think we are meant to have this. After talking to Chris tonight on the way home I am going to make another call back tomorrow and see if I can talk to a supervisor and see if I can get this resolved. If not we may be telling them to forget it. this is crazy!!! Why is this so hard??? I don’t understand. We can’t get cable out here or else we would have done that. And the 5 channels of TV are driving me nuts since that is basically our entertainment at the moment (other than the beach and outside!!). Oh well. It is teaching me something but I am not sure what! In the big scheme of things this is very minor but still irritating!
Chris is now watching Australian Supermodels so if that tells you anything about our selection………
