Must be that time of year. Tossed out two Lazy Boys and bought one new one and a new printer. Love your chair Judy. Cuilidh would love to see your cover. Sounds lovely.

Judy just be sure you can tether your phone and iPad if you change plans.  You can always use Telstra air Fon when out and about as well.Not so with other suppliers.

I have no problem at all with Telstra. I pay $60 a month for the landline and unlimited data on my mobile for $45 a month and that is across all devices and I have a few plus all the streaming I do on TV. My Bill is never over $100 a month. If I go over a certain limit they threaten to slow down my NBN abut that has never happened. Just spent a few days in the northern beaches of Cairns and I could not believe how slow the service was. No matter what plan you have nor what company you go with they all use the Telstra lines so as far as I am concerned it is all about location the number of towers and the speed. My service is excellent. Very lucky I am to live where I live for broadband though not much else!

Next you will be building a gazebo by the pond and making it an outdoor room where you can sit and feed the ducks while enjoying a glass of.

Thank goodness we do not have an IKEA within cooee of Cairns! Today I disposed , recycled, trashed and repurposed over 30 items excess to requirements. I live alone. I have 3 only doona covers. One for a single bed and 2 for my bed. I even went through my shoes today and found I could get rid of only four pair.  5 years ago I had only 3 pair of shoes not I have 15. I think they multiply when not looking. 3 pair are white canvas ďtennisĒ shoes only $3.50 a pair from Big W. Why. No idea.  I did buy 3 pair of arms for my Dresden glasses. Nice to have colour change but totally totally unnecessary. I recommend Dresden frames to anyone. Brilliant concept and Aussie made for only $40.

Youíve had a good run in the west cookie, just goes to show thatís this Covid can rear itís ugly head at any time.  Hope you have plenty of food in the house.

I laughed so hard I nearly spit my wine when I read that Judy. I am sure cookie could live without shopping for food for at least 3 months. Chookie could live for a year!  I could last at least 2 months and I am sure you could last the same. I could last with
wine for about 6 months!

Welcome home Ral.

Gert there is talk of another total lockdown with children staying at home for the whole of January.

If parents are not around the bend by now, keeping the kids home will soon send them there,

Chookie that is a bummer when that happens. Just forgetaboutit and move on.  Hope Ral is home by Friday.

Judy I hope you get your mojo back soon as your health improves. No need to rush it.

CC it is terrible what is happening in England. When will they get it that isolation is just about the only answer to spreading it.

My best friend of 50 years was at the Avalon Bowlo where she did catch the virus and is now in self quarantine. She is not well but the department of health are checking on her. She has spent many hours talking to contact tracers and others. She lives in a retirement village which is now in TOTAL lockdown with security guards roaming about. Many of the residents are royally pissed off they cannot get out. I do not have a lot of sympathy. No one wants anyone to get ill. This virus is absolutely brutal. My friend now also has to bear the guilt of unknowingly exposing others and the fear of having ongoing problems. Stay home and stay safe.

Ha ha Judy. You would think so but mainly not. They say I let my grandkids fix it. Drives me nuts  they want to remain dependent on kids to help when they could so easily help themselves. I do however help a few, especially the men who were forced to bet on the horses on line when the TAB shut shop. LOL!

I recently purchased my third Apple Watch but did not get the one with the inbuilt Sim as I feel I do not need it quite yet but certainly when I finally get hearing aids I will upgrade again. I find the smart watch a necessity these days. Then again I find all digital devices absolutely necessary. LOL!

Yes I do Cuilidh. I have kept in touch  with Stef on Facebook. It is so sad. Erik died quite suddenly and of course Stef is devastated. They were also partners in business. Stef has also had health issues recently do is doing it tough.

Michele,  sounds like good news all round.
Gert, which one did you buy?
TMX, Friend, looks like it can cook independent of set programs.  Good for jams, soups and stews. Need more info.  Are bowls interchangeable?  At least it is a slow move in the direction I want.
Cool and wet here today.

What message?

The umask is washable and will last as long as the pandemic I figure so money well spent.

It helps if you can perch the frames of your glasses just on the top of the mask as well.  I paid $15 for some anti-fogging cloths from our optician ... they didn't work!

When I worked in the operating theatre we had masks with a plastic bit you could pinch to make a seal around your nose. We do not have to wear masks but as an ď abundance of cautionĒ and after a lot  of research , bought an expensive but suitable mask from umask. http://umask.com.au/. It does not allow my glasses to fog.
