Thankful Sunday

Sunday is here again, it seems every week just gets faster and faster as it sails by.

I am feeling considerably better than I have for the past few weeks, the black dog is shrinking down from the hulking great sheepdog it was before to a rather annoying terrier at the moment.  I just need to get it to like a teacup Yorkie or something cute and manageable.

Which brings me to Thankful Sunday, the post where I talk about what I am thankful for over the past week.

This week, I am firstly thankful that the High Court has ruled that the $900 stimulus payments will be paid to Australian tax payers, after the government's plan was legally challenged by publicity hungry academic Bryan Pape (who needs to get a life and stop wasting everyone's time and money).  As I am one of the tax payers who hands over almost a quarter of my earnings annually, I'm thrilled that I'm finally going to get some reward for being a contributing member of society.  I'm planning to get myself my iPhone, pick up my Wii off layby, and the rest I might put towards a tattoo.  Or something fun anyway.  Unlike a lot of people I haven't got myself into unmanageable debt, so I can relax and use mine to stimulate the economy like we're supposed to.


I am also thankful that my Cyster-friend Tes organised a Brissie Cysters get together yesterday.  (Cysters are women with PolyCystic Ovary Syndrome for those who don't know.)  I made a decision at the end of last year not to organise any more of the get togethers as quite often people were not showing up or cancelling at the last moment, and it was getting to be too big a chore.  But I really missed getting together with my cysters, so it was lovely that Tes organised a get together.  We went for brunch at the Pancake Manor on Charlotte Street.


All in all it's been a fairly good week, here's hoping the coming one is even better.

Haha! That is so weird. In SA we call those flapjacks. Pancakes here are flatter with cinnamon and sugar. :)
