On Saturday, we went to see the Picasso exhibit at the Art Gallery. It was also a chance to meet with tweethearts Ivy, Chris, Lena, Jay, Mindy and Jo. Lena introduced us to a quaint cafe hidden in the grounds of Hyde Park Barracks. We spent some playtime with the kiddos at Hyde Park, before the Zombie Walk commenced at 3pm. Ajay met up with Noel and Marc, both former PinoyCSers from SG. On the way home we stopped at IKEA Tempe to buy some storage as recommended by the Araullos, the Antonius modules. Of course no IKEA visit will be complete without IKEA food. It was our first time to munch on hotdogs and donuts in Tempe; we usually went to the resto but it was late and too close to closing time.
This was also the first weekend I was on my new hormone therapy. So far my heavy bleeding has stopped, but not without the side effects. I’m very dizzy most times, and I had so far three short migraine attacks. The tingling on my left leg is still there, but it goes away when I do some stretching: this indicates to me that my blood circulation improves with exercise.
Today, Tuesday, is somewhat a better day, health-wise. Since 14 February I had been on a daily morning exercise routine. Yesterday I missed one, owing to an “all-knotted-up” feeling all over my body. But today I resumed this routine, and went for a walk with Ajay and back home. I’ll be going to work in a few hours for a meeting.
In other news, we started bringing Sophie to her nanny yesterday. Today was her second day, spending a half hour alone there with Yaya Ann and Filip. On Monday Sophie was there alone for 15 minutes. Tomorrow we plan to leave her there for an hour. She seems to be getting on well with Yaya Ann and Filip, which is a good sign of things to come =) One thing we have to get is a new toy ball, coz Sophie can’t get enough of Filip’s Disney bouncy Cars ball.
