Well she looks healthy and happy and I guess she is reasonably both... but my darling Jassie has been diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism. She is probably going to have a one off treatment of a radioactive pill. She will be in hospital for a week - hopefully while I am in NZ....

Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid glands) is a very common disorder of older cats. It is caused by an increase in production of thyroid hormones from the thyroid glands, which are situated in the neck. Clinical signs associated with hyperthyroidism can be quite dramatic and cats can become seriously ill with this condition. However, in most cases hyperthyroidism is treatable and most cats will make a complete recovery.

Greg was back yesterday and put up the fence extensions and tidied up the backyard. I started painting the fence - but ran out of paint. What a shame. It is going to be a long hard slog painting this weathered old fence. Last time I painted it I gave it a good soaking with water first, but with the water restrictions that is not possible this time around!

Yesterday I picked up the vanity. It is a small one that hangs off the wall so it fitted in the backseat - of the Monaro - No chance, but I had a work car on Friday to go to Yarram, so luckily I had it for the weekend. Am looking forward to seeing the steel machine tomorrow when I get to work :-) I have to go to Yarram next Sunday for early Monday morning, so the beast will be staying in the warehouse again next weekend too.

I wasn't quite sure what I would come home to yesterday, but Matt had left the bathroom nice and tidy BUT........ I got home at 9:30pm - to find ... NO WATER and it wasn't just a case of turning on the mains tap either.

I WAS NOT HAPPY. So he had to come and fix it!
But the good news is tht he doesn't have to cut the concrete to move pipes. He is just going to plug the hole for the current outlet and attach the handbasin drainage to the bath drainage. So for once something turned out easier! The floor will also look much better without a big "PATCH" in it, as I am having a smaller vanity that "hangs" off the wall ;-)

I saw this gorgeous overgrown church entrance last time I had to go to Gippsland, and was kicking myself that I didn't take my camera. It was strange as I had this nagging feeling that I should take it too! Anyway when I went down yesterday I made sure the camera was in the car! The huge pickets on the fence amazed me!

The roads really are lovley and I wished I had Mr Monaro instead of the work car. But then when I come across road works, then had a truck throwing up dust too I was kinda glad I didn't have him!

Good bye ugly vanity, good bye ugly tiles. I wont miss you!
