In light of the craziness that is our world right now... we will probably stay home for a while.

No holiday as such.  Maybe some short day trips?

Not too sure right now.  But we certainly don't want to fly in the face of all that is being advised:  Social Distancing, keeping ourselves and others safe etc.

It's a chance to get all those little jobs done around here, and also... to save money towards a longer trip over to Australia later on in the year.

So first up for today, I am going to go through all my clothes and sort them out, and get out some of my winter clothes because we are getting some cooler days now. 

I would like to pop out and get some new headphones for the computer too.  The 'new' ones I bought a few months ago are simply not working. 

The other thing we can do today is go on the hunt for an outdoor tub/cleaning station... so I don't have to clean the paint brushes, rollers and paint tray in the laundry tub, which makes a hooah of a mess in the laundry.

The other day I spent over an hour just cleaning the freaking paint equipment, and the subsequent mess I made.

Obviously we will be painting the studio exterior walls in the near future.  I'm not doing any more till I've got something sorted for the clean up after.

I will wait a couple of hours before ringing Steve and Bex to see how he is feeling today. He's probably getting sick of me asking!  But I need to know or I shall worry.


STEVE UPDATE: He had a horrible night, lots of pain.  But  he thinks it might be linked to what he's eating as well as the medication he's on.
So, he's going to change his diet and see if it helps.  Praying he doesn't have to go back to hospital.

Stew and I went out and got a few things from the shops.  Also this:

ABOVE:  So later on today or even tomorrow we will find the right place for it outside.

Our country has just gone to  LEVEL 2 on Coronavirus Alert.

Which means all 70 year olds have to self isolate, and all non essential domestic  travel is discouraged, along with a host of other restrictions.

Man did we ever choose the wrong month to take a holiday!  Totally can't be helped, and we will just make the most of the time together, even if it's hanging around home.

9.30 pm:  And it's been a very quiet afternoon and evening.  Stew cooked a delicious roast pork dinner for us.
And that's a wrap for the day.

Catch ya tomorrow.


  1. And subsequently letting ya blogging family know how he is away from computer all day so wont know until well after 5. Hope he had a good night.

    Spending time together is just as important as a holiday George's Mum.

  3. Poor Steve, I hope dietary changes help.

  4. After the LASAGNA post, I was wondering if Steve has dietary restrictions. My nephew has Irritable Bowel Syndrome and he REALLY needs to watch what he eats. I don't know if those things are related at all. I truly HOPE Steve can enjoy lasagna, because it is seriously one of the best foods on the planet. Damn it! Now I want lasagna!

    I would suggest throwing away the rollers instead of a new cleaning area, but thats just me. Cheapskate that I am!

  5. It's all stay at home here now. I'm surprised it took so long there.

  6. When I saw the lasagne Steve made I thought it might cause a major problem. Has he been advised what to eat and what not to. MMy daughter follows the low FODMAP diet because she has gut problems.

  7. My diet isn't an issue for my ulcerative colitis, and I am only trying to limit a few things while I have pancreatitis. The lasagna didn't cause any issues I can assure you, and my dinner last night wasnt bad diet wise, I am only trying a few things with my diet to see if it alleviates some of the pain at night, which is most likely caused by my medication which I take at night, but it's still worth a try. Thanks for the concern guys, I'll be fine, and nothing in this world will stop me from eating lasagna hahahaha
