Judy, it's nice to see you back on the forum.  I hope your health keeps improving.

Very little happening here.  DS called yesterday and dropped off some kipfler potatoes at the door that he bought from a farm.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

Yes Mich the Wubin pub is still there. They seem to be one of the last things to go in a country town.

Judy itís lovely to read that you are at home. Donít overdo it and be kind to yourself. Sending a hug through cyber space.

Thanks everyone, I have the support and love from so many around me that I have to do the right thing to win this battle.  Girls I had the best ENT Oncologist one could wish for, even DD thought he was a bit of alright too.

Judy, good to see you posting again.  Makes the Forum feel more whole.  Take it easy. 
Not a lot happening here. We are fascinated with the Solar system.  It produces a little solar power on even misty, foggy and rainy days.

Hi Marina. How is life going for you? It must be so very hard.

I think this lockdown in stage 3 for rural people is even harder than the first lockdown.  We canít make a coffee and sit in the car by the lake and watch the birds.  Everyone is wearing masks.  We really have very little to complain about compared to Melbourne. We talk to our Melbourne family most days.  Our GS played the piano on Face time for us.  By the 13 th. September they will have been in lockdown for 10 weeks.

Melbourne is very strange under stage 4 lockdown.  The streets are certainly quieter, but not nearly as quiet as I thought (and hoped) they would be.  Not enough people are wearing face masks, which is frightening (personally, I don't consider looping the face mask around your forearm is what the authorities quite consider to be the correct way they had envisaged them being worn).  The curfew seems to be working.  The street we live on is fairly busy and, after 8.00 pm it quietens down considerably, but during the day it is perhaps still only 75% down on 'normal' - during the very first lockdown a couple of months ago the street was almost empty.

DH and I are very careful with hand and face hygiene, mask wearing, etc. and so far  we are both well and hopefully will continue to be so until this is over (touch wood).  Our shop is closed, although we do do contactless sales at the door, by appointment (so that everything is ready to just be paid for and handed over) andwe are also getting a lot of mail orders.  Similarly, the workshop is accepting instruments and bows, but everything has to get disinfected before we touch it.  What was surprising to us, but probably not to 95% of the population, Uber has proven to be a great way to transport things around and quite a few of our repairs have come and gone back again in this fashion.

For DH and I, well, we live above the shop so we come and go as we please ... because we don't have to stick strictly to opening and closing times, we can wander down when we feel like it, take a leisurely lunch break or tea break, etc.  In fact, I am finding it quite relaxing and stress free (so long as I don't think about the financial and long term consequences, that is ... that is very scary).

I have 'invested' in several jigsaws which, much to my surprise, I am finding quite absorbing and relaxing and DH is happy not to have interruptions during the day so he can concentrate on his work at the workbench.

It is good, though, that this is all happening during the colder months, I think these strong lockdowns would be very hard to implement in better weather when everyone would be wanting to get out and enjoy the season.

Anyway, a bit of a long and rambling post.  Sorry about that.  Take care everyone, keep safe and well.

It was a very interesting read Marina, we are all keen to hear how our distant friends are coping.  As my DD1 lives in Melbourne itís of great interest to me.

Marina thank you for sharing that . Life has changed for all of us and the hardest is not actually being able to define time , many months are passing and who would believe we are in mid August . School and term holidays just blur into one .

I agree K Atie, mid August has come around way too quickly.

I agree with the strange thing about time.  It just seems to go.  I think I have slowed down as Iím not getting as much done, and itís not worrying me.  We have really been in iso since early Feb. that just over 6 months.
Judy, I think it is more difficult for the Melbourne people and how they cope depends a lot on personal resources.  Marina and DH and our family in Melbourne are able to do what is required and adapt.  I feel sorry for the people who canít cope and are demanding their rights. Selfish and stupid. Glad to see the numbers dropping.
