2020 Week 13 Keep Calm & Carry On…

It seems we have arrived at a point in time where we understand what we need to do, and are beginning to be more confident in navigating the world around us during the current pandemic. It is all still a little surreal and bizarre, but I guess that is just the newness of seeing people…

2020 Week 12 History

Wow! What a week. Everywhere around the planet, people are united in surviving a common enemy. CoVid-19, one thing is guaranteed and that is, none of us will ever forget that name. This evening the Australian government has finally started rolling out some overdue measures to try and slow the spread of the virus and…

2020 Week 11 Adapting to Change

What a change a week or so makes. The whole world is united in facing the challenges presented by COVID-19. Not only is toilet paper unavailable, but many items are limited for purchase. Thats not really a huge problem because there is still an abundant supply of food for all and the limitations are in…

2020 Week 10 The Great Toilet Paper Shortage…

One of my womb fruits jokingly suggested a few weeks ago that people would soon start brawling over loo paper and that there would be a crazy black market for the elusive bog. My kid was right. I said there was no way people would fight over toilet paper! It was too ridiculous for my…

2020 Week 9 A Maze

Navigating the mental health system requires both patience and tenacity. Much of my time this week has been devoted to trying to find suitable housing options for our eldest son. Sounds simple, but is actually fraught with difficulties and challenges. You cannot rely on anybody else. It is essential that you do all of your…

2020 Week 8 Cats & Cats

This week I’ve been up to all sorts of things. One of those was fixing a fan. I somehow managed to cut the tip of my left hand index finger. Not much of a cut, but I have to avoid using it when I’m typing because its deceivingly painful. There have been lots of phone…

2020 Week 6 Diffusers and Computers

My computer is being fixed this week so I’m typing on my phone 🙂 Not sure how my pc got a crack in the bottom right hand corner but it did. Luckily for me, Apple is fixing it free of charge! Awesome 🙂 I’m going to pick it up on Saturday. I’ve missed it. Weird…

2020 Week 5 Risotto Disaster

Late again! Seems to be becoming a habit 😉 I’m usually a punctual person, but not, it seems, when it comes to blogging. I was trying to have a schedule of writing every Sunday. As you can see, I’m not going too well with that! I’m going to go back to writing whenever I feel…

2020 Week 4 Beef in Red Wine be mine :)

I’m late with week four because I’ve been flat out with so many things 🙂 I’m here now though 😉 I’ve been getting loads of things done and that feels great. I am looking forward to a slower weekend though and it will be my birthday so I might get cake! Cake is always a…
