Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

...and I can only hope that with all attention being on our internal borders, the powers that be don’t take their eye off the ball in regard to nursing homes. Hubby tells me that a plane load of passengers landed in New South Wales today and left the airport unchecked as officials were busy attendin...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

I think the problem arising in Australia is due to loosening of restrictions, combined with some cultures within our population that just will not be told and therefore believe they are beyond any restrictions. ( unfortunately many live in public housing and this affects others in close proximity).

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Our days are lengthening yet again. 5.20 pm as I type and not dark yet.

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Had to take the Paracetamol about 2 hours after going to bed, but feel so much better again this morning. I am in take-it-easy mode today, just some Ancestry, a walk and ignoring the weeds. It was jolly cold this morning and we had frost on the lawns.

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

We are about 45 mins out from bed. I keep watching the clock because I need to get there and get into that foetal position with the legs drawn up to ease the pain. I try to do that now without any painkillers, because we all know that is the better course for our health. ( I have Paracetamol on stan...

I did find last night in bed, that sleeping on my side, with my back quite flat ( bum tucked in) and legs drawn up in the foetal position, did me quite well. Trouble was straightening the right leg out afterward. ( yelp!) very painful...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Spoke a bit soon. Stubbed my foot as we were doing the dishes tonight and can feel the anger rising again...mind you, we aren’t that far off bed for the night...I’m sure the kinks will come out as I sleep. Weather might have it’s say though, as I can only describe it as a “penetrating cold damp” ton...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

We haven’t been to a wedding in over 20 years. No-one is getting married any more it seems. Of our 4 combined children only one ever got married and the other three are all over 40 now. Times they are a-changing.

I don’t expect anyone will be doing “Christmas in July” this year either.

I did put a duvet cover over the rocking chair to air. Unfortunately I approached the rocking chair from the front, it tipped back from the weight of the duvet cover, and I may have tensed up so as not to go face-forward with it. :biggrin2: Yup...that’s wot done it guv...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

The cold weather has had my Sciatica raging for almost 48 hours. I can’t think of anything silly I may have done. But that is the way it goes, tomorrow I will likely be free of it. When it is bad, I can’t help but imagine a sorry old age, yet once it has cleared I can’t wait to climb on my bike or w...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

We found a window in the weather for our walk...a chilly wind but dry all the way. We also had to pop out to the hardware store for a connector for one of our vertical drapes ( hubby snapped the cord the other night, closing the drapes. I couldn’t say anything without starting World War 3, but he wa...

Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

Is it for baking Bread or Christmas Cake or Puddings in?

OR...just had one of my neurones run into another...is there a hole in the bottom? Turn it upside down over your ball of wool to keep it clean while knitting, and stop the cat from getting to it. Wool comes out of the hole.

I have made decisions for my birthday in the last hour, if it helps Wendy. We will stay overnight with my son ( in the city) and we have booked into a Chinese Restaurant which we have frequented over the past 40 years ( same owners). It is a bit “trapped in time” but the food is good, and I remember...
