    Good idea. Will try to remember that for Monday. I didn't know about the health care card. I'll look into that. Yet another confusing thing about the ndis. 💚👑

    So two weeks ago my doctor put me on more medication for diabetes. Not only does it add to our expenses, it makes me feel bad. Apparently the unwell feeling will only last about four weeks!! I know it's for my overall health but wow. Over it. 💚👑

    Asha how exciting!! 💚👑

    We went to the cemetery the other day to see Wayne's dad and my cousin Jason. Wayne doesn't often want to go to see his dad, makes him sad. It was the first time I'd seen Jason since he died, and now I get how Wayne feels. I was quite down for the rest of the day. I like to go see Wayne's dad and my grandparents in both Northampton and Busselton, as I want them to know they are missed. I'm a Christian, and believe in eternal life; I also think visiting the place I said goodbye to people shows how much they meant to me. 💚👑

    Willis if I need to talk to someone at the bank, or insurance company etc, and know there's going to be thinking involved, I quite often tell them I have brain damage. Makes the conversation so much easier, from both points of view. 💚👑
  6. Jana No one here will EVER tell you to 'get over it' or to 'buck up'. We are here for support and love. We got you 💚👑
  7. Oh wow! Mark that sounds awesome! So glad there were many things you were able to do! Would love to see photos when you get a chance! 💚👑

    Lynne how's the numbness? 💚👑

    We had such a good time! I'm exhausted, but it was well worth it. There were 11 of us staying in the cottage, and two were there just for Saturday. I think the trip was just what Jennelle wanted. 💚👑

    Pinjarra is 5 1/2 hours from home. Jennelle is my very best friend; we went to the UK together in 1994 and were away for two years. When she married Jeffrey in 1997 I was her chief bridesmaid. When Wayne and I married in 1999 she was my chief bridesmaid. Wayne and I are their eldest daughter's godparents and Jennelle and Jeffrey are Carrah's godparents. This whirlwind trip will take it out of me, but there was no way I was missing it. We are on the bus for 4 1/2 hours, then Jennelle will pick us up in Perth for the last hour. Can't wait to see her.

    Road Trip

    My beautiful friend Jennelle is 50. Carrah and I are off to Pinjarra to spend the weekend with Jennelle and her three daughters.

    Kev that's awesome. Kudos to you for keep on keeping on. Well worth it! Hairs all good...just reliving the 70s! 💚👑

    What Heather said. Please do see your doctor regarding the numbness. 💚👑

    Hello Lynne! Welcome! I call us the night shift, as we are down under. I'm so sorry to read about your health issues, then the stroke. I too, lost the use of my dominant side. It does get easier. Looking forward to sharing with you. Also, no question is silly. And venting is definitely allowed. 💚👑

    Mark, Riley is just gorgeous. What a beautiful happy smile he has! He will be having adventures over that sorry your handsome boy is no longer with you. Heather, my Riley is looked upon with my rose coloured glasses, that I cannot deny, but I definitely think the lead idea is a great one. Will discuss it with Wayne, as he'll have to be part of the training. 💚👑

    Heather the cartoon is the perfect analogy for face masks. I think if anyone is offended it means they aren't wearing their face mask properly! 💚👑

    Absolutely Heather. We as a state, joked about Victoria. A lot. Now, everyone is like Wow, serious stuff. Hopefully it'll be under control soon. 💚👑

    Two days in a row, Becky and Heather, on my bike! Not sure if you all know, but James Blunt is my absolute favourite singer. He's just about all I listen to. I've made a playlist of his songs. A four minute song, a three or less minute song, another four minute song. The idea is to ride to a four minute song, rest during a short song, then ride during the next four minute song. Not sure how many songs I'll do, but like your teeth thing, I'll add the next song when ready. 💚👑

    Good idea Heather, we have a beautiful foreshore footpath that goes for about 6 kilometres. It's just down the road. We could definitely do that. The only trouble is yes, once she's been out on Henry she thinks every time I go out, she's coming! 💚👑

    Heather that's slightly wicked!! But true!! Mark, I'm with you on the routine side of things. I go great guns, then once a month when Wayne does night shift on the weekend and we keep quiet during the day, so he can sleep. Routine out the window! Keep at it! 💚👑

    Not seeing family and friends was the hardest thing for me during our short lockdown. I didn't feel isolated though, as there's four of us plus 7 pets! Then 11 aquariums. I missed church, but as I stay home a fair bit and make cards etc, not a great deal changed. I think that's why so many of us here in the West are so complacent. Yesterday there were two cases in the whole state. We aren't really living with Rona. 💚👑

    Sue, exactly!! We have too many pets, but we love them all. 💚👑

    Becky have you been talking to my husband? 🤣🤣 Yes, that does make sense. I seriously did not think that way, so thank you. 💚👑

    Feeling Loved

    Yesterday I took Riley for a ride on Henry. This morning Wayne was doing stuff in the shed, and had the dogs out the front. I had a doctor's appointment. As I went up the driveway on Henry, Riley followed me. Wayne picked her up so I could leave. When I got almost to George rd (100 metres from home), my phone rang. I answered it on my watch; it was Wayne. I said to him: it's ok, she's here. Exactly as I answered, Riley jumped up onto Henry. Apparently as soon as her put her back on the ground she chased after me. He walked around and took her home. He said no amount of calling her w

    My bad leg is so very painful just lately. Incredibly painful. My muscles like us all, are weak and under-used. I'm trying very hard to get into a routine; every morning after breakfast I make the bed, tidy the kitchen and empty the dishwasher, put on washing and tidy up any area that has been left a bit of a mess. I'm not a neat freak but I really don't like junk hanging around. Ok I'm a neat freak. My next step is to add in riding my you beaut recumbent bike, but I'm not sure how. By the time I finish my tidying routine, I don't think my leg, or back, fo
