On Friday night was Orlenas Hens Night. We went out for a really nice dinner (we shared the seafood platters) at Fermented Grape. They also had a $5.50 wine buffet (if you ordered a mail meal) which is the reason we went in the first place! Had a good night and since I wasn't drinking I went to drive home at midnight only to find that the carpark which I had left my car in (I didn't know what time it closed and I hadn't been planning on staying out that long!) has closed leaving me and my car stranded. Fortunately, mum had brought a car so she was able to come and pick me up!!
At the Ekka me and mum purchased a consultation with a chiropractor as we had been told we were "out of alignment". The time came and we went and saw the chiropractor, he did various test things and some xrays.
The conclusion was that ...
I have a pretty crooked back! Which may be the reason I am so damm clumsy. My hips are out of alignment and I really should get something done before it gets worse. He said I had mild scoliosis.
See my xrays. If you draw a line across my hips and up my back you will see how crooked I am!!
I am not sure whether I am going to see a chiropractor or an osteopath, but really should get something done especially with the kind of work I do.
He also did this test where he could tell what part of your spine was having pressure put on it. Black isn't even on the scale so its pretty bad.
On Friday night its was Darryl's last night on the Gold Coast before heading back to cold, raining, Tauranga, New Zealand to finish studying. He can't do it here because he needs to do it full time and has to do some practical stuff that needs to be assessed by a New Zealand assessor.
He had planned a special night out.
We started the night by having a yummy dinner at Moo Moo's steak restaurant. This place has mouthwatering steak.
We then went to the casino for what I thought was to do some gambling, so as i sat at the pokie machines winning up, Darryl disappeared with my winnings and not returning for some time with my coins and with me running out of coins I called him and found out that we were not in fact going gambling but to the casino show Zingara. The show was pretty good and my favourite part was when they brought out the "Globe of Death". This is where they have a big cage and motor bike riders got round the inside of it. I was quite excited as I had read Jason's Blog a couple of weeks ago about it. They started with two riders, and then three riders, and then four riders where everyone was like wow and THEN they brought out another rider!!! Five riders, I can't beleive they didn't crash into each other and then they split the globe in two and three riders rode in the top half and two in the second half. It was pretty amazing.
I had a great night out and thanks heaps Hun. Can't wait to see you again, whenever that might be, work hard!!!
