Nice to see youíre up and running again K Atie, it takes more than Covid to slow you down.

Trout fishing would be awesome.
DD and I went out for coffee this morning. DH went to Brookton with some other car members to display old cars. https://www.brookton.wa.gov.au/brookton-old-time-motor-show.aspx

Cataract op went well. 2 hours in and out. Little cloudy next morning but within an hour was clear.  Thank for asking.
Friend did amazing job looking after me.
Had visitors for lunch yesterday. They brought the sweets for lunch. RTE lemon Coconut cake. Lovely.
Ballarat hosting Water Polo, on the lake  today. Very rough and great fun to watch. Will have a coffee In Restaurant next to where nets are set up and enjoy the fun.

The trout fishing was interesting a man set up with rods and lots of young local boys catching small trout and returning to lake . Lots of fish bait used for the young little kids that didnít get a catch ! Think the trout were over feed by this time ! I just watched . We compared our steps for the day I did 13700 men did 9000 approximately! I have never feel so tired at a field day , just draged myself around . But DH DS decided to go all the way home last night . They took in turns driving . We ordered Grillíd and picked up in Ballarat. Now we have a day at home to do washing etc and DS can get on with his VCE work , DH as huge amount of book work too . I even got some Magnesium spray for my aching knees ! Oops forgot to use it last night . Also a tub of creamed honey . DS got a couple of jumpers . DH loved looking at the machinery, but so pricey and nothing available for ages . But sad didnít get to see DD but two 21sts she was a little busy .

Recently had ride in Tesla and shown how to do Quordle. Like Wordle but more complicated. Found a suspicious transaction on my credit card. Rang bank at 9 pm last night. Told me to ring Woolworths which I did. They explained that the Ď free delivery Ď which I have been having for 3 years has a charge. ! Not a lot of money but pretty sneaky.

Cookie your life is full of firsts , what was it like in the Tesla ! Thatís very interesting regarding Woolworths free delivery charge . Spent the day washing and a little rest , Covid has knocked me around but getting better each day . DS drove back to boardo , this seems when we catch up with all school things , cannot believe only two weeks left of term .

That was very sneaky of Woolworths, Chookie.  I have only used them or Coles once - I can't remember which.  Everything came - or should I say a version of everything came, I certainly get 100% of what I wanted and, to cap it all off, it all came in several Coles bags which I had to pay for!  I suppose that is only to be expected, though they had to package it somehow and God forbid they should reuse cartons!  I think I would think again before I used them again.

K Atie, I learned a new word from you today ... boardo ... I had never heard that before and it took me a moment or two to catch up! No I am trying to think of occasions when I might use it myself!

I did a little bit of gardening yesterday and a bit of a tidy up outside today.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

Marina , boardo is short for boarding house at school !
Today is a day of shear gob smack disbelief! Our boy kitten Jerry went missing about 5 months ago . This morning feeding the chooks I turned around and thought Tommy the mother cat was moving very fast around a tree . It was Jerry her son , oh my gosh . Since feeding and cuddles and making sure the other two ( Fluffy is ok that her brother is home ) are ok , it has slept on the back door mat and cryed when itís awake . DH has had cuddles too. He is a bit scatty but fat and no injuries . People said he will return and I had given up , have no idea where he has been but clearly hiding out at a good spot , so strange as we asked all our few neighbours.

DH went to another car show yesterday. He took the latest acquisition.
Today we had to go to the bank to arrange for one of the recipients of MIL will to have his $$ put into a term deposit until he can access it. We donít know when that will be, itís a jolly nuisance.

Iíve got everything from the pantry shelves stacked in a pile in the kitchen. Joiner is booked to come on Friday to put drawers in. Canít wait.
Ballarat is hosting the National titles for the Canoe Polo, Easter Weekend. DD has asked me to help with catering. Iím making Protein Balls, Scones with jam and cream and as many slices as I can manage. A friend is coming to help. She will bring her TMX and with 3 bowls and 2 ovens we should turn out a lot.

WOW, that sounds like a huge undertaking, Chookie!  Somehow I think you are going to have a great time.
