Today is the 21st of August, 2020 and I have decided once again to endeavour to make contact with others in the blogging world whom I have neglected rather badly of late. My original blog appears to have somehow been compromised so I have moved over to my Dear Mum and Dad blog which I hope will work.
We are into about our 6th month of this dreadful virus which is causing so much sorrow around the world. We in Western Australia are very fortunate and have not had a person to person infection for well over 100 days and I feel we have our W.A. government to thank for that and their management of the pandemic. There are certain persons who want to tear our borders down and I wish they would think about other people's well being and not just about money. We had a large number of persons from two ships who had the virus and we had of course to make sure we took care of them Many other cases of the virus were people from other states or from overseas. They have all had to isolate for weeks in hotels taken over for that purpose.
When I saw our GP near the beginning of this pandemic he advised me to cancel any appointments for at least 3 months and even then was very cautious and advised to wait until about August before seeing other medical people.
Our hair grew very shaggy but we allowed our hairdresser to come in July so we would be shorn and are seeing her every 6 weeks. She comes to our home so we didn't have to go out to a salon etc. Our cleaning lady was also allowed to return in July so our houses is tiny little cleaner although I think we did quite a job over the 2 months without a cleaner.
I had postponed my appointment with my endocrinologist but saw him on Wedneaday and today I went and saw an optician as I so badly need new glasses. Next week we both go to see our podiatrist. I have managed to reach my larger toes using an emery board so no real problems but hubby has been a bit cautious about me helping him so is well and truly in need of a pedicure.
We were sorry to miss a couple of family birthdays but have had visits from our two granddaughters and two of our great-granddaughters and daughter Karen and her hubby have called a couple of times so not completely isolated.
I find my computer keeps me in touch with family and the outside world and I would be lost without it. If anyone does read this do please let me know as I would like to know if is going to work or not. Thank and wherever you are please stay safe.
