As I write this a Nice Man is up on the roof measuring up the patio roof area for replacement. I've had a lot of information thrown at me in the last ten forty minutes and I'll attempt to record it here.

tl;dr On Thursday 18th October 2014 at roughly 4pm Sector 7 was struck by an extreme hailstorm which destroyed our patio roof and caused some water damage to the ceiling. Also apologies for timey wimey vagueness and possible cruelty to tenses. Spoons have not been in good supply lately.

Just stuff. Apologies for the Stephen Moffat style non-linear nature of the narrative.

Oh bugger. Looks like I must have given Cafepress permission to randomly stick my designs on any old product they want, regardless of how well they fit. (I'm assuming there's a clause buried in the T&Cs somewhere).

I had a good day on Tuesday, with some nice surprises.

This is a frivolous post. I have not assigned spoons for this, nor is it anywhere in my various lists of priorities. My lists of priority tasks are long; my spoons are short. I can't really afford this. But sometimes you just have to kick over the traces and do whatever you damn want to. So I'm going to ramble for a bit.

tl;dr I ramble for quite a bit.

I do so hate spending all my spoons on medical things, as opposed to wringing out every scrap of life I can, but them's the current breaks. I include the writing effort that goes into these medical report posts, but they're such darn useful things they have to take priority.  Today I saw Dr NF for what was supposed to be the next review of The Supplement Program From Hell but the appointment didn't quite go that way.

Hope is poison. Today was a rough day as I tried to continue the momentum from yesterday regarding my new push to health.

So today was the day I took myself and my precious precious Pyroluria test paperwork to Clinipath in West Perth, the one place where they collect and process one's wee for shipping to the one lab in Queensland who do the actual testing.

On Wednesday I thought I'd managed to get a referral from my GP to do a test for Pyroluria, but it turns out that paperwork was useless.

Went to my GP today armed with internet info on Pyroluria and the important factoid that a family member had tested positive for it.

About a month ago we took delivery of a load of mulch via the Mulchnet service, which is a marketplace that links people seeking mulch and tree contractors who have fresh woodchips to get rid of. You can register for free mulch and hope and wait, or you can pay for just delivery which will increase your chances of getting some, or like us you can pay a bit more (still much less than landscaping supplies cost) for a definite delivery when a load becomes available in the local area.

We paid in cash, but a couple of days ago we received an invoice for that amount from the tree contractor.

Seems like quite a while since I last managed a simple what-I-got-up-to-today post, but today I seemed to get a lot done, which feels worthy of note.

Life as a medicated crazy person was a bit grim the last time I posted here, so I thought an update was in order.

My efforts to connect to the intertubes are being thwarted at every turn. It's getting messier by the day so I thought it would be best to do a recap. Bonus points if I can actually post! (ETA It only took 2 attempts.) I've been on dialup speed for a month now and it's very depressing.

I have just sent the following letter of complaint to my ISP Three regarding the collapse of their mobile broadband service following a merger with Vodafone. I don't do this sort of thing often; I find it exhausting, and that's starting from a position of already exhausted. Let's see what happens.

I ordered something very important on June 20 and it has not yet arrived. Today marks 17 business days elapsed since processing confirmation, which normally you'd expect to fall within the 4-6 business days suggested by the site as an appropriate delivery window. Maybe not, my maths is not really on fire today.
