    Sorry...thanks for your kind thoughts. Not having power was no fun. Very grateful though, all we lost was food. Northampton and Kalbarri not so lucky. Friends in Three Springs lost their shearing shed. Unfortunately I'm on the Geraldton Noticeboard on Facebook. One person might say, oh it's terrible having no power. They would be bombarded with negative comments about counting themselves lucky they still have a house etc. I feel that having a stroke, and knowing that people are worse off, doesn't help. We all have individual crosses to bear, a
  2. Awesome Heather! I literally have just been on the phone with my OT, we've been discussing what else is needed to make things easier for me. You, like me, have realised just how much we have 'managed ' on our own...but at the detriment to stamina! Hope the snorkelling happens! 💚👑
  3. Oh Cons2, I feel your pain! That would be one of my biggest problems...feeling worthwhile, or needed...all those kind of words. In Western Australia, we are very fortunate as we have very few restrictions. We are extremely picky about who we let in the state and local transmission was never really a thing. I've started making cards for kids who have been baptised at my church but the family are not regular church goers. The idea is to send the child a birthday card each year until they are 4, just to remind families we are here for them. The ide

    Thank you. We are all very much looking forward to the rain aspect! We've had side effects of cyclones, but haven't been hit since 1979. I was 7, and don't remember it at all! 💚👑

    Glad you had a lovely visit. I feel for you; missing Ray must be an everyday thing, but particular days/times would bring certain memories forward again. We do make our own happiness, all the best with that. 💚👑

    A cyclone is headed straight for my town. We are an extremely windy city normally, but I have to admit, I'm frightened. 💚👑

    You are right Heather. Even two minutes a day will help. It's tea time here, so I'll start tomorrow!! 💚👑

    Happiest of anniversaries to you and Deb! Glad you had a lovely day! My mother in law always says it's just another day. I think it's what you make it. That lovely breakfast is a great way to celebrate a very special occasion! 💚👑

    Riley is eating by herself again, thank goodness. She's still sleeping in her basket next to my side of the bed. I think we both love that! We have discovered life without Lucy is possible, different, but possible. 💚👑

    The east coast has had the worst 18 months ever. It's totally unfathomable how people go on, rebuild and start again. So glad you and yours are all safe Sue. You can pray for WA to have rain if you like! 💚👑
  11. Tracy Thank you for trusting us with your story. When I say HUGS, I don't mean the quick almost touching but not quite type, I mean the type where no one wants to let go, and where strong arms make you feel safe, like everything is going to be ok. Your analogy was amazing, I really think you nailed it. Love you long time, my beautiful friend 💚💚

    Thank you so much ladies. I think the suddenness of it all is what shocked us all. Riley, the puppy, is grieving terribly. I had to hand feed her her dinner tonight. We also have her sleeping inside now. The pets have been great, they understand our sadness. My eyes are still sore from crying. 💚💚

    Glad the evaluation went well Dave. Looking forward to hearing more of your progress 💚👑

    Still no rain, Heather. Starting to cool down (we've had a few days over 40 though) and rain hopefully April... Sue, have you been caught in the floods? 💚👑
  15. Thank you! I have just printed this out! 💚👑
