We would all agree with you on that Kim, I think the fact that we’ve all been through so much this year made it easier to accept that we weren’t just singled out for bad luck.   One we will never forget and let’s hope 2021 brings us all a lot more joy and a more normal lifestyle.

Kim, so glad to hear that you have survived a horrific year. It is good to hear the positive note in your comments.  I’m glad you are back in Australia, although  I did envy you your time in France. Things not good there at the moment.
Not so am here today and lots of rain overnight.
Thanks Chookie although honestly fine when you know of families who lost loves ones or everything in the fires and werent insured on top.. community was amazing though and has rallied behind alot of ppl.  The region has been hard hit this year and just hope the area bounces back.  Glad we are back in oz although miss not being able to travel and dh family although fine are so much further away with covid and banned travel .. we still have friends who live in oz but are stuck overseas and others who decided to return to France and have had to jump through hoops.  Friends and family in France are back in lockdown :( Crazy times but thankfully at least we have video chat and the like to keep in touch as those whose network of friends snd family are spread all over the world are struggling.  Onwards and upwards.. will definately be saying a big never want to see you again to 2020 this new years..

Frozzie, we’re you in the fire area last Summer?
Mild and warm today.
Might do a big cookup for chooks as I swap the food into new freezer.  I’m sure I’ll find surprise unlabelled packages. .
Hi chookie yes we were.. scariest time.. the smoke alone was jnsane and embers everywhere.. roads were all blocked off and we had to evacuate but our neighbourhood was untouched.. thankfully.. just up the road was totally destroyed though . Kids and I went to Melbourne while hubby stayed back to protect the house from severe ember attacks and fire front heading directly for us but I did tell him not to be stupid and if it got any worse to get the hell out of there.. its only a house !!

Sorry for late reply but crazy end of year with so much to do.. on too if that DD is celebrating her end of primary years, has her dance exams.. some in Melbourne.. DS has started rollover for year 10 plus we are finally going away.. seeing mum and dad finally in QLD and spending New Years with friends in Sydney.. so excited after everything 2020 has thrown at us..

Good to see you are posting again, Frozzie.  Whereabouts are you living now?  I thought you were in Sydney or QLD.
We were in Sydney but moved to East Gippy three years ago.. alot has happened in that time.. hubby is working and living in Melbourne during the week for a year now..

Hang in there our SA friends. 6 days isn’t toooo bad.
Kim, we have only one bee box.  Contains about 30 thousand bees. Produces about 9 kilos of honey a year. We rent the box and bees.  We pay a fee, $200, and they service the box. We get 3 kilos of our honey and they on sell the remaining honey. ( the Bee man often drops off a 3 K container of honey, no charge ). (( I usually give him some of what I’m cooking , often SD crumpets))  The big bonus is the pollination. We get a lot more fruit from our trees. The honey also tastes amazing.
Warm today. About 30 degrees.
Sounds fabulous chookie.. didnt know you could rent bees and boxes.. great exchange.. wish they would do that everywhere.

30 today here too !!

OMG Julie, that is hot. 
The Bee man came again yesterday. He replaced our old Queen with a new one.  He said it was a teenager.  He also gave us a new bee box.  As he swapped the bees over he removed the frames .  He left one frame with us to extract the honey.  It’s dripping through net into a dish. The taste is amazing.
We had a fantastic family get together yesterday. We all felt like we had been let out of jail.
How many bee boxes/hives do you have Chookie?

It’s been lovely ‘talking’ to you Kim, glad MM was able to help you get back on.  We love seeing our old members pop in to say hello.
Thanks Judy.. appreciated your help.. sorry to hear you guys are going into lockdown.. bit over covid but glad vic is able to move about again and with hubby in Melbourne and us in regional vic that we dont have the same painful past few months ever again.. havent seen mum and dad in forever and not sure when we will be able to see them (in QLD) .. shame about the gym Judy.. hopefully it will be shortlived and you will be able to be back at it again.

Nice to pop back in and see what you are all up to.. hope you are all well and dealing with the horrors 2020 is throwing around.

Personally I am thankful for the gorgeous sunshine we are having this week..
