I agree, KAtie, the head massage is always relaxing - but it doesn't last long enough!!

You must be sick of the sight of tomatoes, Margaret!  I am sure you will feel very virtuous in the months to come when you are eating the results of your own garden produce.

Chookie, the cooking class / school sounds right up your alley.  I think it will be hard for you not to become involved. You have enthusiasm, a huge knowledge of nutrition, cooking techniques and so much good sense that the 'pupils' will learn so much from you.  Perhaps just 1 - 2 hours per week, although the preparation and planning will undoubtedly take up quite a bit of your time.

Yesterday I made an egg salad and a tomato salad, today it is cauliflower and chickpea satay, vegan Alfredo pasta and some pesto.

Yes, the forum was ignoring me yesterday as well - good to see it up and running again.

Good you have sorted your hearing aidsut, Judy.  I am sure they will make a huge difference.

I wondered if you were affected by the fires, Chookie.  The embers can be just as dangerous as the fire itself.

KAtie, you are sounding just as busy as usual.  At least there is a short reprieve in the weather for the next couple of days, don't know if that will help regarding the fires, but it will certainly make life a bit easier for everyone with the lower temperatures and the breeze.  I don't know where you live, but I suspect you are close to the fires - take care and watch those embers.

Thanks for your concern re. my ankle.  I discussed this with my GP yesterday and the xray / ultrasound tests show I also ruptured a ligament.  I am now sorting out a foot and ankle specialist to assess my options.

I realised just after I left my GP that I recalled how it happened.  When we were on holiday in Rarotonga in September last year, I slipped on a c. 2" step and fell over (within 1 hour of settling into our accommodation so I wasn't familiar with the layout).  My knees and elbows were really sore and badly bruised, but I didn't notice anything wrong with my ankle. I do recall limping a bit, but didn't think anything of it.  Now I know why. 

Honestly, I am truly an accident waiting to happen - something always seems to go wrong with me when we are about to go away or when we are away.  I should wrap myself in cotton wool!!!

I discovered why I have been limping for the past 2 months - I have a fractured bone in my ankle!  No idea how I got it.  I have bone density scans regularly and whilst my bones are not as strong as they were last century :o they are not indicating osteoporosis at this time.

Melting again. 43 is just too hot, even with air con. 🥵🥵🥵🥵🥵🥵🥵
That must be so hard, Cookie.  I do not envy you.

Chookie, I drove through Tilden yesterday on my way to Kyneton and thought of you.  I was on my way to drop my cousin off with friends in Kyneton on his next part of his holiday in Australia.

Chookie it looks like you have certainly find your place in your new neighbourhood.

I made a new recipe  yesterday - Tomato Tartare.  The tomato salad part of it was lovely, not so much the tartare layer, so I think I will try it with hummus next week.

Still lots of cold chicken. Need something warm as its quite cold. Saw a recipe for rice paper rolls, fried. Thought I might try AF.
How did the fried rice paper rolls turn out Chookie - crispy?

Something from the freezer - it maybe quiche but I'm not sure as it's label fell off,  with salad.
That sounds like a bit of a 'lucky  dip' Margaret.  Whatever it was I am sure it was delicious.
