Good to get that second cataract done - everyone whom I know that has had it done says their eyesight is so much better.

It must be lovely to be remembered by your past pupils in that way.

Cookie, how very nice to be acknowledged. Good news about the second cataract.
K Atie, thanks.
DD is guest speaker, ( about her Paddling trip ) at the Ballarat Flyfishing Club Annual Dinner . I am attending. Looking forward to it. Our neighbour is making the floral Center arrangements for the tables. She will be using native flowers from her garden and Blue Gum tip from our garden.

We had perfect weather here too Judy.

This morning DH drove me to the podiatrist. I havenít had the all clear yet. 😀 I received a phone call this morning saying the doctor that did my cataract op has Covid and is off work. One of his fellow eye specialists is stepping in to check all the eye op people tomorrow.

We are selling the property a Invermay. Big big clean out. We have seen a place that we may make an offer for. However if we donít buy but sell,  we will shift in with DD.
Ral is very slowly improving but is still very ill. He has been shifted to the rehab ward. Walking is a big issue.

Bess, selling your lovely home in Invermay will be a massive wrench for you both, it seems like you have only just moved in and are arranging things just as you want them to be!  It will be a huge challenge.  It is good to hear that Ral is slowly improving, and the shift to rehab is a big step forward.  As ever, our love and hugs to you both

What a wrench for you both Chookie, however health is more important than anything. We think of you every day and wonder how you are both going.
Rehab wards are wonderful places. Mum spent a lot of time in them and everyone is so caring.
Enormous hugs to you both.

I can only imagine how much has to be done for the sale of your lovely home Chookie, not so much for opens but more so for when the time comes to empty it. Off to the rehab unit, thatís good news and I agree that he will be well treated there. Of course I know he would be loved and treated well wherever he is, how can anyone not love such a beautiful man. All the best for the next stage of your lives.

Thanks again for the lovely thoughts and good wishes. A good friend is coming to spend a couple of days and help with the clean out. I attempt the clean out one room a day. I think the kitchen will take a week. ! DD Ďs house is well set up and Ral will go there straight from Hospital.
