There is always a silver lining ... I needed some more blueberries and they guys I get them from sell at markets and today was St Kilda market so I went there to stock up.  Didn't have much time to walk around, but it is a lovely farmer's market and I should really make an effort to go again in summer ... when it is WARM AND DRY!

Hope she didn't swallow the teat!

Thanks, JulieO.  Looks positive.

Has anyone roasted nuts and seeds in a TM31?  Is it safe?  Does it over heat the jug?

My hand is great now, thanks everyone for asking.

The day before yesterday, despite getting the clearance for my hand, went downhill so yesterday I had no silver lining - cutting a long story short I did absolutely the most idiotic thing I have ever done, I allowed myself to be scammed.  It was incredibly stressful and I feel such a fool, but it is over now.  We did lose a little bit of money, fortunately not much, but the silver lining eventually came (a) when I went to the bank and confirmed that we had lost very little (I managed to suspend our accounts in time, obviously) and (b) when "Geeks2U" came in and checked my computer over for any problems and changed all our passwords - the only trouble is, now I cannot get in to my new phone, none of the 'new' PINs are working!!

Ah well, silver lining, I am here, all is well, I have learned a lesson, licked my wounds and life goes on.  Sometimes some days just seem to be better (or worse) than others.  Long weekend coming up so I plan to enjoy lots of cooking and resting.

Good to get the help at work, Michelle, always appreciated when that happens.

Good luck with Ral's bloods today, Chookie.

My silver lining for today is that it will be my last day at the hand rehab clinic - I've been wearing a split, off and on, for approx. 8 weeks now and today I will call an end to the treatment as I think it has gone as long as feasible.

I LOVE soup, you have all got me going now with ideas for my next cooking spree.  I made a huge pot of minestrone last weekend and it has been great to have it at lunch time on these colder days.  I like the sound of Thermobexta's, K Atie, ... must check it out to make sure it is vegetarian (but that has never stopped me before, mind you, I will just adapt it).

Well done, Chookie, hope he / she / it didn't knock you over, lambs can be very enthusiastic when it comes to sucking from a bottle!

Thanks for your kind words, Judy and Chookie.  We love it.  There is a single car park out the back but it is a pig of a driveway - I can get the car in, but I refuse to reverse it out (typical woman driver!).  It's funny how things get around - one of our colleagues posted a link to the article which she picked up from a post by one of our customers on Facebook ???

Today’s silver lining is a boast … sorry about that.  We just got this in from our architect – it’s the film and article that was taken about two weeks ago (that’s DH finishing off a fingerboard he had just shot and, later, preparing his lunch).  I take no responsibility for the narrative, we had nothing to do with that and the still photos were all taken the day before we moved in … so the place was all nice and sparkly and new!

I made this at the weekend as well, but didn't have celery seeds ... I used something called Australian chicken salt instead so I will end up with an entirely different product.  Will try it next weekend.

This just came through in a blog I subscribe to.  I thought it was an interesting concept and have not tried it but decided to post it on here to see if it creates any interest:

Today’s silver lining is that a friend said he got a negative result for a COVID-19 test  :) ; however the only problem is that he has never had a COVID test and the results were for someone called Sayeed.  The good thing is that it is a negative result, but Sayeed, whomever he may be, may never know!

Oh Chookie, that doesn't sound like you at all - you must get out before you become house bound and your reservations hold you back from getting out and about.

Chookie's suggestion is well worth following up.  I know exactly how frustrating broadband is.

I also know how frustrating it is to wait for the MRI result.  Thinking of you both.

One of our customers is amazing - every day during the lock down she has been posting something with a silver lining on her facebook page - be it a picture of someone's teddy bear in a neighbour's window or some small gift of veges or flowers someone has left on her doorstep, so I am going to try to post a silver lining post each day (Monday - Friday only) on here - and for a week only because I think I may run out of inspiration after that  ;D.

Getting started (this is a two-in-one post):

Yesterday I bought a new Samsung super duper phone because I required one to interact with the ATO through their new bright idea and my 5 month old Nokia was not smart enough to do this.

Today's silver lining is that my new phone is working with the ATO's newest bright idea.  YAY!!

(now to search for Monday's silver lining!)
