Glad you got through the MRI successfully, Chookie.  Is Ral concerned about his or will he be able to handle it OK?

I like the sounds of your mini lawnmower, Cookie.

JulieO, as I am just 2 minutes from the hairdresser I have told them I will be available at short notice, so hopefully the lawnmower will not be needed.

We have been having beautiful weather. Sunday is forecast to be 34. Naturally that is the day that there is a car display in the city at Langley Park, right on the river. I am in two minds if I should go or not. It is usually a boring day as they don't permit you to leave until after 3. I don't think there are too many wives going.

We are back to winter.  Max 9 today.
Loved the footie last night.  GS asked which team I was going to support. I said Dusty Martin.  He just laughed.

Not being a particular fan or a follower of the game, nonetheless, I was torn with the football last night.  My wonderful neighbour was 50 yesterday and a supporter of Richmond, my equally wonderful accountant is a Geelong supporter ... who should I barrack for ... well, neither, I was happy whichever way it went - although slightly happier for my neighbour!

Do any of you remember a Dutch guy called Stef who used to post on here quite a lot ... I thought I would put up a quick post for those that remember him., I just found out that his husband died recently .I dropped him a quick note and he said he does remember the forum, so that was nice.

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.

I remember him. That is so very sad. Devastating for Stef.

Yes I remember the guys too, thanks for sharing the sad news. One of them had relatives in Adelaide.

13 deg here and very windy day.  Nearly got blown across the road this morning.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

Well done Victoria, especially Melbourne.
We have had our gardener come today.   She has been once in 7 months. So nice to see her.
Quite windy but still cool.

Well done Victoria. I have to admire Dan Andrews for sticking to his guns. It appears to have made him very unpopular. I wouldn’t like to be any of the Premiers during this time.
Enjoy Marina.

Great news Marina. Different parts of the UK are in lockdown. Where I live it’s teetering on going into lockdown again,

CC it's never a good thing to have to go into lock down, but I feel it is better if it is in the cooler / colder weather because people are not so keen to get outside as they are in the warmer months.  Best wishes if you have to ... get back into your hobbies, make sure you have something positive and constructive to do, take Chance for lots of walks, keep yourself occupied ... it helps ... above all, keep safe and well.

CC, hope you don’t have to go into lock down.  But if you do it isnt the end of the world.  You are in a rural area and this makes a  lot of difference. Marina‘s advice is good.
