This time last week we were heading to Adelaide. Tomorrow it will have been a week since the hospital and she seems to be getting along fine. As far as I am aware, there are no problems – which is good. Since we came home the weather has been odd, fluctuating between, heat, rain, wind and then back to heat again. The morning’s out with Benji have been cool to cooler and have generally required some sort of jacket on my part. Jim didn’t go to Western Australia due to closed borders, although he is still talking about early next year if the borders are reopen. The fact that Western Australia is closed does not surprise me in the least – they never wanted to be part of the Federation in the first place.
At least here in South Australia everything is almost back to normal – whatever that is. The Church reopens today so we are happy about that. The wearing of masks outdoors is no longer mandatory and we have a log-in system in place when we have to enter any shop, chemist or supermarket. It is accessed by smartphone, but if a person does not have a smartphone, he or she may sign in with name and telephone number. The idea being that if an outbreak occurs the government Covid-19 tracers can contact the people who may have come into contact with the affected person and decide if quarantine is necessary. The information will be destroyed every 28 days.
Annabell is well. She gets tired but everything thus far is well. The exciting news is that the $141 Million extension of the Tonsley railway line will open this week. This means that the rail line now
extends to the Flinders Medical Centre and the Flinders University. From the new station to the front entrance to Flinders Medical is only a few minutes walk. Too much for Annabell but I have taken that into consideration and I will get a wheelchair from the hospital here and take it down with us. OOO — might even get her into Rundle Mall shopping center. Ah! Be still my beating heart. The Flinders medical people want some extra tests so I have to take her for tests and an ultrasound next week, but that will be done locally at our hospital here.
Have been looking after Annabell and then Christmas and New Year intervened and with it more trouble with WordPress , my frustration with my lack of ability to comment on anything. Well, yes, I could still write a post but with everything that has been happening of late, I seemed to have lacked the opportunity to do this. I was slowly reaching the stage where I was considering if it was really worthwhile to continue, but it’s like my photography – not great but I enjoy doing it and I greatly enjoy exchanging comments with some very lovely people. On that subject I do believe I have fixed the WordPress problem but I wont know until I try to comment on a post. Although, having said that I have commented on one this morning and it seems to have been ok
One of our former Elders is going through what could be their last weeks. Then again she was not expected to see Christmas and New Year and here we are. When the end comes I will be going down to Adelaide to represent the people here. I had the joy of working with this lady for many years and we missed her greatly when she moved to Adelaide.
About an hour or so ago I tried another comment and failed, then I tried the same post again and I succeeded, so it seems to be a bit touch and go. I did not find WordPress a great help in this matter
