Well, not worst thing ‘today,’ but last night I attended a charity ‘do’ at my golf club and one poor chap had foolishly agreed to have his chest hair waxed by some of the lady golfers!

As his screams rang out, making my own eyes water in sympathy, I couldn’t bear to look! Turning away to join my mates at the bar however, I noticed that every woman present was laughing, joking and falling about at his fate. I’ve never seen such naked cruelty! Scary!!

Don't think so! It sounded more like "I want my Mummy!!"

Uh-oh. Did everyone panic? We had a couple of suspected cases during this winter and everyone really freaked out a bit!

After an MR (Magnetic Resonance) of my back on Monday, the doctor told me the result yesterday evening and I have a hernia !
Immediately doctor started talking about surgery !
Now, it's not as if I can't move or have terrible pains.
I don't think I'm going to have an operation that fast !

Don't worry Carine. A hernia repair is a very routine operation and I think it's mostly done through keyhole these days. I had one 20-odd years ago and it wasn't a big deal and I imagine the procedure is even more straightforward these days.

My car broke down on the freeway tonight. Very scary. At some point this week I will need to get it towed to the mechanic to get a broken timing belt fixed. Hopefully there won't be any other repercussions!

Several of my daughter's school friends have had it. Keep expecting to hear that "Mom, I don't feel so well . . ." any morning now!
