Home from my holiday today, a glorious week away with friends. We had perfect weather and did everything on our list of to-do things.  The local shops in several towns did well out of us.  Back to reality now, washing done, everything else put away and time to relax now some 3 hours after arriving home.  My SIL is coming over from Melbourne on Monday, looking forward to catching up with him.

Chookie you will enjoy your trip to the city after all this time.  All devices are difficult for us to set up, we had some laughs down at DDís holiday house when trying to do simple things like open the washing machine door, finding the microwave and even getting the front door open LOL.  A quick check with DD and our problems solved, I guess she got a laugh too.

The water in the petrol tank seems a problem where your Mum lives K Atie, perhaps many cases of that.  If we donít have a problem ourselves someone else always does and it becomes our problem.  Youíve had your fair share lately so I hope it settles down for you.

Great news Chookie, you must be over the moon.  Nothing will stop you from doing those exercises that have given such remarkable results.

Sorry to hear of your problems K Atie, I hope the silver lining is on the horizon.  The medical profession will fix DSís problem.  So is it a bad thing to have those calcium injections, I know a couple of ladies who have had that since they turned 70, donít know why my doctors havenít suggested it to me.  This may make them query the worthiness of it now though.
Days 5 of my getaway with friends, weíre having a great time.

We would all agree with you on that Kim, I think the fact that weíve all been through so much this year made it easier to accept that we werenít just singled out for bad luck.   One we will never forget and letís hope 2021 brings us all a lot more joy and a more normal lifestyle.

It must be such a relief for the kids to finish their exams, I wish them all the best with their results after what must have been their most difficult year yet.

What a shame Judy, I bet it tastes good too.  I know it might sound weird, but could you put some of the slice in the TM and blitz it until it's practically smooth?  Might not look great but all the flavour would still be there and it might just enable you to eat it.

I wonder if a sago/tapioca pudding would be easier to eat.  I think it would be softer than rice, or even a pudding made with semolina?

Great ideas, thanks Julie. I would heat the slice up then blitz it and could add some more mixed Sustagen if it needs to be thinner.  My friend is here and she already has a plan to take the ingredients for a sago pudding with us on Saturday after I told her of your suggestion.  Thanks Julie.

Not sure Marina, rice pudding is on the list but is not allowed in soups.  I think it would be easier to find a small container of rice pudding than cook a risotto and have most of it firm up so quickly.  Iím only eating a very small amount, less than a toddler would.  A friend buys one particular tub of rice pudding that she loves so I will see if we can find it on this getaway, it would be a nice change from custard.

Thanks everyone. Yes soup is my favourite food now Chookie.  Iíve checked out the menu of a couple of places Iíd like to take the girls when away and if I have a chat with the chef Iím sure they can adapt those meals to my requirements.

Oh what a shame Chookie, you had a great relationship with your gardener and her children, Iím sure they will miss you as much as you will miss them.  Hopefully you will be able to find a good replacement for her.

Denise that is great news, so happy that you will be able to have a family Christmas.  If everyone does the right thing maybe you will get through it successfully.

Not sure yet what to do with it and all the raw meat in the freezer cookie, the kids may as well have it.  This weekend Iím taking 2 of the ladies who transported me to my daily radiation treatment down to my DDís holiday house down south for a week as a thank you for being there for me. DD is giving me the best rates - no charge as she also appreciates what these ladies have done for me.  I plan to take them out for meals every day and do all the touristy things - Iím not driving, one of the ladies will do that.  Eating out is going to be difficult for me but Iíll work around it somehow.  Going shopping tomorrow to buy some basic items to start off with but I can buy whatever the ladies feel like down there.  Eating one meal a day out will mean they will only want to graze at night, both are very small eaters. Iíll virtually be taking my evening meals from home as there will be nothing on the grazing platters suitable for me.  It is going to be hot on Saturday when we go down there but after that it becomes cooler, weíre all so looking forward to it. I havenít been anywhere since our Melbourne Forumfest, whenever that was.

Well I did say I wasnít going to be doing any cooking seeing as I have 2 drawers of frozen ready meals but I want more variety so Iíve made a tuna mornay and a zucchini slice today and a sausage curry yesterday, have to fill that empty bottom drawer.
