Thanks girls nearly on the mend . Hope your eye recovers quickly .
There is bad weather predictions for today tonight and we are off to twins 21st in a  wool shed ! Letís hope it doesnít rain and not too cold . DH Omitted that he had house keys in his wallet too. So lucky . MIL well she is in Ballarat base and the Patient next to her has Covid as of yesterday arvo , ward locked down with her in it !!! Iím a lot concerned, DH DD missed out seeing her , this is possibly a good thing . So frustrating as doing tests but not knowing really what is going on .
DS is studying for his exams this week . He came home saying his year level have moved into the year 12 common room already . Life moves on very quickly .

That is worrying news about your MIL K Atie, I hope she doesn't contract COVID on top of everything else.

By now you will have had the storm passing through.  We had it here too.  Very heavy rain, lots of thunder and lightning but, thankfully, no wind.

Looks like a lot of us had the storm. We had a doosie this afternoon and preceding that, everyone Iíve spoken to was woken by thunder at 3 am this morning. More to come tomorrow (Sunday).

I had something similar done some years back Marina, I donít remember being bruised but I do remember the pain. TVs are certainly different than they were 15 years ago, have fun trying to work out your new one if neither of you are technically minded.

Poor MIL K Atie, fingers crossed she will be OK. Enjoy your night out, I hope the wool shed is reasonably waterproof.

We had a great night in a very sturdy wool shed , but once there a huge downpour roaring thunder so we all just ate and enjoyed. DS had rearranged his room put his desk back into his bedroom. DH early this morning took DD to train station to go out to lunch in the city ! Resting this am , DS better get up and relight the fire that he forgot about last night .

Caught up with a few friends today. Some visited and a couple on the phone.

Great to catch up with everyone. The weather has been unreal. It is extremely cold with very gusty strong wind. The new house has good zoned heating. We are still getting used to it. Finally got the dishwasher to work. Still got too much stuff. The builder who cut the hole for the lift also did a couple of extra small jobs for us. He refused payment as RAL made him coffee each day. Iím not baking yet . Still trying to get things placed. 2 more boxes for OP shop and very full recycle bins.
GC set up big TV , printer and 2 Apple Home devices at the weekend. We are enjoying the view from the upstairs windows. Something is always happening in the park.

Not good news K Atie.

I can imagine your view of the park Chookie. Itís lovely to have a pleasant outlook.

Yesterday we saw the lawyer who is sorting MILís will. Small steps but hopefully it will get sorted now. This man seems very efficient. 

Today I had a KAtie day. I went to the hairdresser, then over to DFO to pick up some sneakers, then to pick up a couple of things DD had ordered at the local Westfield. Home for lunch and then over to another local shopping centre to the Bg W for DD again. At least I easily got my 10,000 steps.

Cookie you made me laugh I do stop a lot too . Well done on fitting so much in .
Chookie that view must be very special.
Cleaned up bugs behind a couch . DD mowed the back garden ! Not the front or the mower would be bogged . Took a wheelbarrow of garden rubbish to the burn pile . Mosquitoes biting right through my jeans . I now spray the back door with crawling insect spray , hoping this will stop them coming in or us all bitten when we put our boots shoes on .

Supermarket shopping yesterday and then a trip to the library.
Mostly cooking today and a little bit of reading.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

Not sure if I said earlier but DD got her Ps the other day in and even got 100% . So since then just not driven yesterday she went to the other farm and washed her DG car ! Today I collected mail it had the hard license in the mail . A  GF rang and asked her over ... looks like my car is the go to at the moment. Only problem was there was massive water over the road , we sorted I went to look in DH car and she then went the really long way , glad it was close to home . Now Iíve cooked dinner no one home , maybe it might be dinner for tomorrow night when we are all home !

DD had done some more click and collect so. Went up to the local Westfield again, with the people chasing Black Friday bargains. I have never seen it so busy. I did pick up a couple of bargains.

Oh forgot to say DD collected her DB from boarding school early morning he finished year 11 exams off till Tuesday, they did the grocery shopping and took themselves out to lunch all on me . Today I tried to clean up the breezeway all day many trips to the recycle bin and landfill bin , cleaned up all those pesky bugs , rather sore tonight . Really doesnít look like Iíve done anything much , oh well I know I have bring on tomorrow. DD is also trying to sort out her room , all the uni gear from the whole year too. Really hope we make more of an impact this week .

Not a lot. A bit of cooking. Then a friend dropped in.
