    When my dad made the lazy Susans for me, he made them in record time! Even though it's great that he does stuff for me, it can be better if there's distance between myself and the tradie, so I totally understand your decision to use someone else. I had a cover made for the bath, so the laundry baskets sit on top. No more bending to get them, or cleaning the bath out! Wayne is a cabinet maker by trade, but I (government) paid someone else to do it. That way I had total control over the colour, thickness and design. πŸ’šπŸ‘‘

    Sue I'm really hoping to paddle steam the Murray in SA for our 25th wedding anniversary. So we've got two years to get it right!! Because we've got closed borders, not many of us go anywhere. Don't want covid, but definitely looking forward to more than just here. πŸ’šπŸ‘‘

    I'd use ndis, Heather. That's the perfect funding thing. Deigh, you are right with the letting the mind wander! I was totally not thinking about what I was doing, more like what I was doing next! I'm waiting on a quote to have some kitchen cupboards changed to drawers. I need to contact him. After the cyclone all trades are flat out. πŸ’šπŸ‘‘

    So the other day I was tidying up the kitchen, and bent over to put the soft plastic recycling into the container, which is in the bottom of our pantry. Totally lost my balance and went head first into a pantry shelf support beam. Because of my lesion, it's been drummed into me over the last few years, not to hit my head. Anyway, I screamed because I wasn't sure if I was going to actually fall or not. The kids were home and both came running. I managed to stand up and that's when I realised just how sore my head was. As was my nose

    It's a worry alright, Heather. Doing what we can to help ourselves is paramount. August last year, we went down to Yallingup for a few days. On the way, we caught up with friends in Perth. Only at a maccas, to make it easier for everyone to get to. I went to the loo, and this young girl was asking her little girl to flush the loo. The little girl was all over the system with her hands looking for the button. Her mum ended up pushing it. Then they walked out! No hand washing!! If covid does nothing else, it teaches that hygiene is important. Appar

    Good Times

    Carrah went to a friend's yesterday, so Wayne, Connor, Riley (the dog) and I bought tea and went down to the foreshore to eat it. The sun was setting, the breeze was beautiful and it was lovely spending time with Connor, one on one. It's the simple things. πŸ’šπŸ‘‘

    Deigh my father in law had Alzhiemers, and lived in a nursing home the last few years. One of the ladies fell all the time, so she wore a bike helmet permanently. Not saying Valerie wants to do that, but if she's having a busy day...whatever it takes. πŸ’šπŸ‘‘

    Oh Asha!! I can just imagine your husband complaining about the cupboard! Too funny!! I'm with you Sue. Was very resistant at first, but if I want to keep volunteering at soup kitchen I had to do it. I'll let you know how I go. πŸ’šπŸ‘‘

    We are a bit the same in WA, Sue. We, generally, won't travel for fear of getting stuck in quarantine, either there or here, or both. I really want to go to Mudgee where my brother is. Besides money, covid is what's stopping us. Hopefully we'll all be free of that fear 2022. πŸ’šπŸ‘‘

    That's a beautiful concept, Sue, having a word to define your year!! I'm going to have to think of one! So glad that Alice and Trevor are enjoying their time on the coast! πŸ’šπŸ‘‘

    Number two is the worry jab, so I've been told. That's in a couple of weeks. All the best for your third, Heather. Hope you aren't back in the city long. We've stopped watching the news, not sure what Vic is up to. πŸ’šπŸ‘‘

    Oh dear, that's not good Deigh. Is that something that will improve? πŸ’šπŸ‘‘

    It's crazy Heather, this is year 3. Sometimes I can't believe how quickly this decade is going, other times it's very slow. At least it's interesting... πŸ’šπŸ‘‘
