August Chat



  • @artist55 Well done for getting through to almost the end of your week. Hope your R & R is beneficial. An โ€˜r u okโ€™ day poster is very appropriate.๐Ÿ‘



  • Good morning everyone,

    @artist55 I bet they make some really precious RUOK posters and yes, they must count!
    I am so glad that Thursday is your Friday.

    I must design some medals that have little hummingbird wings on them so that the more we get, the more they lift us up. Wouldn't that be handy, to just waft out of bed and into the kitchen to fill up the water bottle?

    Sending good wishes to everyone. Let us know how your day is. Have a whinge if it is terrible, or let us cheer along with you if something good is happening.



  • I made it through another week ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ Good news is that boss man has agreed to halve my hours next year and hold my position until 2023. ๐Ÿคฉ No petrol left in the tank so itโ€™s off to bed. Good night everyone!



  • @artist55 Thatโ€™s great news to end your week. You must be feeling very relieved. ๐Ÿค—



  • Good morning,

    A short hello as I have been up for two hours and need a lie down. ๐Ÿ™„
    But just in case I don't get up again for a while, I will just say hello to everyone.

    @artist55 I hope you are happily lying down too. Hooray for adjusting work for next year. ๐Ÿ•ถ

    @Glimmer is the concrete driveway all done? Surely it is.

    Best wishes everyone.

    Miso the cat has settled on my knee so I will just find a nice haiku to share to give her a bit of time before I ruin everything by moving.

    (I don't know who wrote this)

    Patient little snail
    Slides across the morning dew
    In the zen garden

    Bye now



  • @Dot how is miso coping with the new cat?



  • @Dot Oh I like that little saying. Iโ€™ve been a snail for awhile, but Iโ€™m hoping that Iโ€™m emerging into a tortoise now, but better not speak too soon. No, the concreting still isnโ€™t finished. They seem to take forever doing the grading, so the concrete hasnโ€™t been poured, and now with lockdown back on, there may be a further delay. Definitely canโ€™t sing about good vibrations at the moment. ๐Ÿ˜–



  • @Glimmer so sorry about the stressful noise and the lockdown too. We narrowly avoided lockdown this week, but remain ever watchful ๐Ÿ˜œ Wishing you some noise canceling headphones and a restful weekend!



  • @Dot Iโ€™m still in bed and will be taking it easy until later today when Iโ€™ll have to go out to buy a birthday gift. I loved your little snail poem !



  • Saturday,
    Ha yes, that haiku puts a nice spin on how slowly I am moving through the zen garden of life at the moment.

    @iris Miso the cat is managing to avoid the new white cat with the blue collar (who is lording it over the neighbourhood from one end of the street to the other) but I did see Miso drinking out of White Cat's bowl so that must be her way of holding her own, haha. ๐Ÿˆ ๐Ÿ’ฆ

    @Glimmer Oh grr re the driveway. Might they take a break over the weekend? Or just get it over and done with for goodness sake!

    @artist55 Glad to hear you got a big lie in, and I hope you found a lovely present.

    Take it easy everyone, I hope there are lots of little pleasures to find through the day.
    Off for a pot of coffee to be my next little pleasure.

    Best wishes and all good things



  • @Dot thanks for your news about miso. Miso has it all sussed out. We had a fox living under the house next door. It was using my back yard as a killing field, all that was left of the magpie s were the feathers.

    Hopefully this lockdown won't last too long



  • @Dot at mention of the lockdown how does this affect you with regard to seeing your daughter and granddaughter s?



  • Hello, it is Tuesday already! How did that happen?
    I've been crook with a sore throat (covid test negative) and I am so relieved to be getting back to my usual dreadful health. A couple more days I think.

    @iris Oh dear, poor magpie.

    So glad the regions are out of the lockdown. Cheers everyone in regional Victoria!

    I think I caught the sore throat from a grandchild (kindergarten) because they needed some compassionate support last week. My daughter is on top of things now (or she was yesterday).
    Otherwise I catch them on facebook video, which involves me lying down holding my ipad and them squealing 'grandma! grandma!' and playing with the filters etc.

    Hello to everyone, how are you finding things today? Sending a big cheerio!



  • @Dot so sorry to hear that you have been off-colour and here was me thinking you might be in a social bubble with your daughter. How difficult was the covid test?



  • @Dot sorry to hear you have been unwell with kindy germs! I hope you will be feeling as well as possible soon. ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒบ



  • Thanks @iris and @artist55,
    my sore throat is still there this morning so I have cancelled home help. I'll see if I can vacuum in my own time.

    Sending out good wishes to everyone.



  • Good Morning Everyone .... I've been out of the loop of life for an ugly stint of PEM and just coming through it relatively ok, so I haven't read the posts yet. I'll get to it over the next couple of days. Out of lockdown in regional Vic came at the right time, with medical emergencies in the family. At least we could deal with it relatively easy but still ongoing. I want to wish everyone a very happy day and to join me for a well deserved afternoon tea. Have a cuppa and cheeky cake at 3pm in your favourite spot if you can. I will be raising my cup to you all then in solidarity. ๐Ÿฐ



  • @crashdummy @Dot @iris afternoon tea sounds like a lovely idea. As long as the nausea and other nasties stay away ๐Ÿ˜‚ Wishing you all a healthy as possible day.



  • @Dot Hope that pesky sore throat eventually goes away. I get a lot of sore throats and find olive leaf extract to be of benefit. Revolting taste though! @crashdummy welcome back to the other side. At 3pm Iโ€™ll join you with a cuppa. Iโ€™m off for my 2nd AZ jab this morning. ๐Ÿ˜ณ so Iโ€™ll be celebrating at 3pm as well.



  • Hello everyone it is Thursday morning (Artist's Friday again I hope)

    Yesterday was a write off so today I would need the energy of an Olympic athlete to do half the things I really need to do. Trying to work out if vacuuming is more important than buying my coffee (and a few other things).

    Yes, if I have to, I can vacuum without having coffee first. Surely I can!

    @crashdummy Sympathy for those days recovering from PEM, Cheers for regional Victoria having restrictions lifted just in time. (I heard a whisper there is a case in the regions today, fingers crossed it doesn't change the advice).

    That cuppa and cake was enjoyed virtually by me.
    Mmm I chose a slice of the beautiful baked ricotta cheesecake I used to get down Lygon St, and a lovely coffee with it.
    A bonus of it being virtual was no nausea @artist55 ๐Ÿ˜„

    @Glimmer I have never tried olive leaf extract, thanks for the tip. Hope you went well with the 2nd AZ. Woot.

    PS @Daffy_Dave are you fine now after your vacc? Hoping no report back means it was so easy you forgot it.

    Okay. I can at least pull the vacuum cleaner out from under the bed. Small, easy steps! Bye now.
