Glad to hear your up and about Judy.  I bet Geoff was happy to see you walk in today.

Chookie the veggie beds sound wonderful.  Just wish I had more room here to grow more.  Did the lady tell you what publication the recipe will be in?  Can't wait to see it.

The thing With the GG and the thermomix...

We're probably spending more tax payer dollars working out whether or not we should buy a thermomix than the actual cost of the thermomix.

Aside from that though, the thermomix isn't being purchased for the GG's personal use. It's for the kitchen in Government House. That kitchen caters for a very very large proportion of international dignatories that visit the national capital.  The vast majority of entertaining prime ministers, presidents, diplomats and senior figures from other nations happens at Government House. This is one of the key locations where Australia gives important figures in the rest of the world an impression of itself.

Unfortunately, because of the extreme hesitance of spending money on this facility (partly due to over-zealous media coverage) Government House looks like a late 80s/early 90s brothel.

Last time I went to an open day at Government House the carpet in the main lounge was horribly stained and the colour theme in the dining room was mint green and coral. The kitchen hasn't been updated for decades.

Yes it is all tax-payer dollars, but $2000 for a thermomix in the kitchen at Government House pales in comparison to some of the other tax-payer dollar wastage.

I don't have time not to astarra,  must press on regardless as we are trying to get Mum into the care facility with Geoff and have reached crucial stages.  So much to do.  We should know by Monday if we have the bed.

Oh no! Now there are advertisements slotted into threads in Tapatalk. It is very frustrating.
I know they raise money for Tapatalk and the Forum but they are very intrusive.
It is very off putting and they say they are sponsored. Whatever that means!

Sending lots of positive energy and love your way Judy.  It would make life easier for you to have them both at the same place. X

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you Judy. Hang in there.

Chookie and CC my butterfly has come off too. It's a bit of a worry.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

My butterfly has come off once or twice but luckily I have been able to remove it and get by on spoon speed and reverse without any mushing of food.

Great news friends, Mum will officially be a resident with Geoff next week.  I can start moving things in at the weekend.  She's started asking all sorts of questions and seems to be looking forward to it, bless her.
