Hi! Everyone. What a lovely Autumn day today. Horizon to horizon blue sky, 20C and a balmy breeze! Ideal lockdown weather whilst I lounge on the back patio in the sun, with book in hand, glass of vino near the other and waiting for meals on wheels delivery! Give me "Old Age" anytime.
Everyone (nearly!), can't do enough for me!
Which reminds me; another birthday looms; a contemporary card arrived picturing a red corona virus with caption "Happy Birthday. Next Year You'll Get a Real Hug!" I wonder who could have sent that? Not nurse Jacqui, although they obviously have my birth date in their data base! Being an old softy and having got over Humphrey and Ingrid's tearful parting in Casablanca, I'm now re-living My Fair Lady with Prof. H and Eliza! Oh Dear!
Even sadder; a Melbourne meat processing factory (abattoir) has been placed into quarantine because of many Corvid19 cases. So far as I know, no alarmists have stepped forward to claim a link between animal products and the virus. Our attention is being concentrated by each State on the vast number of tests being carried out, with Victoria heading the table, but a nursing home in W.Sydney is also grabbing headlines with an astonishing number of cases and deaths. As they keep reminding us, the elderly are the most vulnerable. I've lost track of how many weeks I've been locked in (down?), 5, 6, 7.!? and I'll miss out on a birthday party!
My Aged Care facility which also organises Home Care packages has posted out 19 A4 pages of pictures for colouring in with a box of colour crayons. To keep our minds active! during this crisis; I'll have to break away from installing Zoom and fixing my scrolling mouse, but this exercise may be just what the doctor ordered for mental therapy! At least he might if I ever see him again. It's verboten to show up at the surgery and I'm pretty sure he isn't doing home visits
Phone chat (only 2 hours!) with my neice , a nurse working in hospital, mainly with elderly patients in Devon, she explained how many gloves they get through in a shift.!
I suppose the NHS has fairly deep pockets and quite right too in the cicumstances!
Think I'll call it quits before this post suddenly disappears.
