What a lovely surprise, when we picked Nic up he was full of beans. Chattering away to all the vet nurses. He is a bit worn out now as he had a general anaesthetic. He is eating happily. His nasty lump is gone. Hopefully he wonít try to bite the wound. We have to try and keep him calm for 10-14 days! He already wants to come out of his cage and fly around. I guess he may be sore  tomorrow, although we have painkillers to give him and antibiotics. That will be fun.

Chookie I am a big list writer. I have them for all sorts of things. Even if I want to get lots done in a day I wil, write myself a list.

Cookie, so good to hear that Nic Is ok.  What a chirpy little fella he is.  Have fun getting the medicine into him.
Not doing much today except experimenting with the Plain wholemeal flour  and the Japanese milk bread.

Thank you all. Bird sitting is hard work I have found. He is supposed to stay in his cage for several days, no chance of that. With the door closed he is on it trying to get out. I have had him on the small dining room table running round to try and use some energy up. Getting him not to fly or pick at the wound is fun.
The first lot of medicine was managed this morning-only just. I think we will improve as we go along.

Cookie, we are really enjoying the Nic saga. Thanks.
Daylight saving started today. Clocks forward 1 hour.  Someone suggested 4 months might be good.
Spent an hour on phone with DS. Melbourne family have been in lockdown now for months.  They are coping pretty well.  They are a high tech family , both parents working from home and GC doing the best they can with home schooling. Lots of sharing and caring in their neighbourhood.

I really feel for people in Melbourne. The lockdown must be so hard. You are very brave Marina and others that read this.
Iím still Nic sitting. This morning I had him out on the table again, chasing and dropping his hanky over the edge for me to pick up. He is much better with his antibiotics etc now- or we are getting better giving it to him. DD has to draw it up in the syringe as he has 0.07ml and DH and I have trouble with the fine graduations on the syringe.
His cage is on a trolley so this morning when I put him back I wheeled the trolley right into the kitchen with me. He seems happy with that and I can see that he isnít scratching his wound. I will be pleased when he is permitted to fly around again. Heís had a couple of flights but only short.

I hope tapatalk sorts itself out soon. My photos always go upside down, but at least you get the idea.

Lockdown for anyone in Melbourne is getting very monotonous.

Car full and very pleased to get back to her friends , itís going to be a very busy week for her . Two sacs the Gat test art folio work , online learning at the boarding house for the week . DS returns next Sunday, but he starts back online learning tomorrow!

K ATIE, hope things settle a bit for you once DD and DS are back at school.
Things are a bit boring here.  Trying  not to order anything this week.

Chookie right now it seems itís never ending but I hope it will settle down soon .
This afternoon DH DS and I went for a drive to another part of the farm intending to use DS drone to take photos of the crops and canola , showers and windy prevented it . But it was good to get out even though I was squished in the middle of the Ute . We always think this was not a good idea late arvo evening as if we get bogged there is no one to help , trust me itís happened to DH and eventually it works out .
Quieter day as DD not here but I did some washing .

Due to on-going computer hassles I am just catching up on everything.  Good to see Nic is 'chirpy' again, Chookie.

DH, myself and a couple of friends went on a picnic to the local park on Sunday.  It was a perfect day for it, warm and, with the cloud cover, no direct sunlight to blind us.  It was DH's first day out of the building for a good couple of weeks.  It was so nice to just sit and relax with some simple dips and bread to nibble on and, I am pretty sure, an illegal bottle of wine, but that didn't last long and no one spotted it!.  It was also rewarding to see everybody was masked up and respecting social distancing.  It gives us hope of restrictions easing soon ... then there are those idiots at St Kilda beach possibly ruining it for everyone.

I continue to feel that I am one of the lucky ones ... I have got work to keep me busy during the day and I can always enjoy a big adventure ... a walk to the supermarket or post office on a semi-regular basis - maybe, if I play it right, I have to make two runs to the post office on one day, that is always exciting!  I have to admit, though, like Chookie's family, that I am getting fed up with all of this, although I am happy to obey the rules and know they are for our own good, it is still not a lot of fun.  There are so, so many who are suffering badly and I really feel for them so my fingers are crossed for everyone that things will start returning to normal soon.

 I agree with Chookie. People are so negative these days so itís refreshing to read how you are living and coping with the restrictions Marina.

Supermarket chopping this morning.  Might go to Bunnings again later to buy some potting mix.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.
