Arrium, winter and Sooah returns.

Sooah and the WaWa in May 2016

One of the things I dislike about this time of year is that it’s cold. Well, of course it’s cold. That’s why it’s called winter, you idiot.  Well, yes, I suppose so, but by the time it’s warm enough to actually go work outside it’s practically lunch and given another hour and the temperature starts to drop again.  Add to this is the fact that Annabell does not sleep very well, so,  the other reason for not going outside early is that I would have to put on lights and I would probably make noise, so I could waken her – and I’d rather not.  As I said, she doesn’t sleep too well so she needs her sleep. I can do some tidy up but I can’t attend to the leaves on the turf because that would require the Blower/Vac and that makes a noise. ** Well, a Newsflash**   Just had a message ( two minutes ago)  from Incheon, South Korea .   Sooah and her husband will be leaving South Korea on the third week in July to arrive back in South Australia. This is excellent news because it will mean that not too long afterwards the WaWa will be going home. There is no doubt that we will miss her – I will miss her –  but Annabell is pleased for Benji’s sake and I  agree with her.   He has spent much of this last year being confined with me in this room. He only is safe when he is with me either here or when we are out. It will be good that the Benji will have HIS  house and home back again.

Of course, all this is working on the assumption that she will want the dog back, but we will cross that bridge if we come to it. We have tried to make it

Seems

ok, but really, poor Benji has had a lot to put up with this last year. He is a loving, affectionate animal and he deserves better.  The WaWa has become my BFF and Sooah will have to deal with that just as I had to deal with the attacks, the blood and bandages for the first six or more months . But then, as Sooah is her long lost momma, it shouldn’t really be much of a problem.

The weather continues to be cold and today we have had our first rain  for  months. Not a great deal but enough and it is supposed to be raining again tomorrow. The Stan cartoon is from the local newspaper so the Copyright is the Whyalla News. I think I said already that the British Consortium have put in a counter bid, which is believed to be substantially higher than the Korean bid, but the administrators are continuing to negotiate with the preferred bidder – the Korean Consortium – who were the highest bidder when the bids closed.

My only excuse – if excuse it be – is that I experienced a sudden rush of blood to the head and instead of buying a new Samsung, as I normally would, I  took a brainstorm and bought an iPhone. I only hate it when I am feeling calm, generally the thought of bouncing it off a wall somewhere gets me through the day. On the 8th June we were changed over from ADSL to the NBN ( National Broadband Network) and since that date, we have not had a landline telephone. Thus I really need my mobile phone  ( That’s cell phone to you)  it’s the only communication I have and Annabell has to use it too, so all calls regardless of who they are for, has to come through this iphone. At the moment that keeps it from being bounced off the wall. People tell me that I will get used to the iphone system, and Apple and once I do I will wonder how I ever managed without it.Yes, well, I don’t see that anywhere on the horizon. Actually, with this heavy mist again, I don’t see much of anything really.

  1. Such pawsome news! I had a Blackberry for years and when I switched to Apple thought I’d lose my mind but now find that I’m thrilled and wonder why I waited so long. I even left Microsoft and went to an Apple laptop and couldn’t be happier. Course there are those technology moments that drive EVERYONE crazy but Apple support is the best ever. Good luck and extra congratulatory ear scratch for sweet Benji. 😁

  2. For Benji’s sake, I guess I am glad that Sooah is coming back for WaWa. But, I feel sort of bad for her and you. I think you will really miss each other and, I do wonder what kind of a fur mom she is to have just left her for so long. Not judging. Just wondering. I too have heard people say Apple products are the best, but I don’t have the time, nor the energy, to learn a new operating system. I barely make do with the one I do know. LOL

  3. Sooah and her husband come from South Korea. They were over here under sponsorship to complete citizenship requirements. He was working for an engineering company. Unfortunately, with the fallout with Arrium the engineering company went broke. The unfortunate thing was that the employer was also the sponsor. They had to go back to South Korea and reapply. They expected to be back a lot sooner but with all the problems with Arrium it has taken them over a year to get employment and – importantly – sponsorship – to enable them to get back. They will now be back at the end of July. Yes I will miss her (the WaWa) but Sooah must have missed her too and will be looking forward to seeing her.
