So glad about Ral. The cost is crazy. Well you are always learning eh. New way of eating can,t be all bad. Lots of challenges keep life interesting. It has taken me a year but I am down from 94 kilos to 72 and aiming for 69. No hurry.

We are having a most beautiful clear sky 28 degrees here today. Just catching up with the forum as I have been absent for a bit. Met up with Mama Fergie and Uni in Bali. Had a lovely catchup.

Bit late here today. 
Spent yesterday night in Emergency.  This weeks event ... Ral has torn some ligaments in his right elbow.  I canít complain as he did it lifting bags of Chook food. However the really good news is that the new medicine seems to be working.  His platelets are up to 162 which is within the normal range.  We wonít really know for 2 more weeks just how much improvement the new drug is making.

It don't rain but it pours eh Chookie. Me thinks we need to lock Ral up and keep him safe from those pesky chooks. Glad the platelets are up so Ral must be feeling a bit stronger but now the elbow! Hope he can manage to coffee machine at least. Hugs.

Warm and dry today. Creswick Farmers Market today.
Have lost 2 Chooks in the last week. Will buy 3 new ones. Only have 4 left but they lay 3 eggs a day.

Clearly Chookie one of your girls is not doing her job. She might be for the pot!!

Hospitals freak me out too Chookie and that was my working life!!

First thing to teach DGD is to cook eggs every which way. I cannot tell you how many women I see on FB asking how to scramble an egg! Disgraceful eh?

I think you may want to upgrade your TMX to the new one when you hear what it can do, especially the slow cooking and the cooking temp reaching 150 degrees. Just imagine what you can do with that. You can give your old one to DGD when she goes to uni!

Hope Ral is behaving Sister Chookie.

You will be fine Chookie! Big girls panties!

Just stick Ral in some place where he can see you and not have to ring a bell every 5 minutes!

Slow and steady for Ral. No way I will be travelling south in the COLD! LOL! Anyway the weather is fine in Port Douglas for the moment. Tomorrow is four years since Ted died so I will be having a Guinness at The Tin Shed. Famous RSL here in Port.

I feel upset for you both Chookie. I am sitting by the pool here in Port Douglas and thinking about you hoping for the best. I am taking advantage of the sun today before a predicted cyclone hits us once again. I am bloody sick of the rain this wet season..

I am totally unsuprised that Thermomix is updating. The engineering of the TM5 had been in the works for a long time but the digital component was out of date before it was launched. They have been scrambling to get up to date ever since.

More heat today.  Dr appointment so have to go out.
GD arrived to start her cleaning job.  We are paying her commercial rates and she is worth every penny.  In 2 hours she cleaned the inside of all the windows, vacuumed most of the house and cleaned the big bathroom.  Fixed a curtain runner .  I didnít want her to clean the outside of the windows as it was 36 when she was here.   Next week she will do those.
She is the Bagpiper and with her teacher will be accompanying John Farnham at a concert in Geelong when he sings Shout.

Well done to GD and well done you to employ her. I think she will be playing "You're The Voice" on the bagpipes. That is from his Whispering Jack Album in 1986!!!

Good luck with the doc today.
