Day 29 of 30

Today’s post was almost cancelled. Last night I went to bed with aches, pains and a debilitating case of what I think was vertigo. I just wanted to make it to bed without falling over. I made to it bed and started the process of self-diagnosis. Not being able to consult Dr. Google, I was […]

Day 28 of 30

Today I went to the local shopping centre to pick up some food and try to find an ironing board. (Not that I’m really keen on ironing, but it is a household essential.) Normally I would get a trolley from the supermarket and run up and down the aisles. Today I made a conscious decision […]

Day 27 of 30

Today I sat myself down at my desk and decided I was going to resolve all those irritating issues that I have been putting off. I was motivated by the plumber who came to replace the cracked toilet bowl (it was like that when it was installed, just in case you were wondering.) Today went […]

Elderly Europeans that bought here when they first arrived in Australia, students and staff from the local universities, upwardly mobile professionals with young […]

Day 21 of 30

I belong to nextdoor, an app that connects people in the same neighbourhood. In my naivety I thought it would be a good way to reconnect with the local community…that was before Covid-19 hit. Of more recent times there has been A LOT of communication around how people SHOULD and SHOULD NOT behave in the […]
