The dreaded C virus is still wreeking havoc with life for us Victorians.
High case numbers each day, sadly high death numbers as well. Well meaning ‘lectures’ on not taking this second lockdown seriously haven’t gone down well with some of the community. Wearing a mask is now mandatory…..with no finish date supplied that also hasn’t gone down well with some.
I got to go to the hairdressers again!
Unlike other countries, here in Australia they are classed as ‘essential services’ so after last week’s approved ‘mask less’ appointment I made another another one…….it’s going to be interesting having a trim with a mask on.
Some of Mr Morrison’s money or to give it it’s ‘proper’ name – The Economic Support Payment’ was spent. My very old iPad mini was replaced by a new one delivered to my door. Well, placed on the ground in front of the door after I’d identified myself.
For my needs there’s not a lot of difference, the main plus is it’s much faster and I can now load apps I couldn’t on the old one. I think I’ve got enough jigsaw apps to keep me entertained for a lifetime – here’s hoping this lockdown doesn’t last that long!
There are a couple of things I have to look into though – I can’t comment on blogger blogs, so have to use the old one. Can be frustrating! And the camera takes some strange coloured photos. All I did on the camellia up above was not move position (where I was standing) but zoom in and the flower colour changed from wish washy to closer to true. This bloom is very early, the amount of buds is a promise of things to come later.
This is going to sound like a broken record……we had wet days, dry days, dull days, bright sunny days, beautiful sunrises followed by freezing cold days where the temp. did not reach the forecast. The good thing is those sunrises are coming earlier than they were a month ago. Yes, the season’s changes are becoming noticeable. ‘Close the curtains’ time is getting later as well – for geeky readers, Sunrise, Sunset and Daylength (worldwide) can be found HERE
We have lived in this house for over 40yrs so why am I just noticing a draught round my knees.
If the furniture hasn’t been rearranged for several years and they weren’t apparent before where are they coming from? lol we haven’t spent a winter at home for years so maybe they’ve been there all the time 😊 It’s an older house so windows have been checked, doors closed, I’m beginning to sound like my father when The Golfer goes outside……I have memories of him yelling ‘shut that b*******door, I’m heating a house not the whole b****** neighbourhood’! Roll on Summer!
Kathy ( kathy’s kampground kapers) lost her ‘wife’. Kevin had been a long time permanent at her van park for many years, Friday was the day we knew was coming but didn’t want to read about. This post is a beautiful tribute to her friend.
I’m looking forward to my breakfast and a ‘nice cup of tea’……coffee later. The Golfer has been experimenting with our oldish machine and different pods – a high and a low I’ll tell you about another day. Oh and how was your week just gone? Any highs or lows – you would like to share ?
