It has been a fairly quiet week for me since we had the HWS fixed and boy, are we now enjoying our showers. I tell you the HWS is working as good as it did when first installed back in 1975 and with sunny days the water is boiling hot. That good old sun saves so much money and we don't have to rely on the electric booster very often. It's not a normal solar HWS but one made by a plumber and the solar panels act as an awning over our kitchen window (which faces north). There is a large copper tank in the ceiling which has an electric heating element in it for use on cloudy days.
Phil actually had a couple of jobs he needed to attend to so he didn't get to the op shop for me last week so my pile of rugs is growing. Just finished one yesterday so there are now 8 of them ready to go to Vinnys. Right time of year for rugs so hopefully they will make a few dollars out of them. Just for fun I lined them up on my bed as I folded them and took a photo of them. There are 7 of them here (the zig zag one I made about 30 years ago and is on my bed permanently in colder weather).
We both visited our podiatrist yesterday and now our feet feel very special. John does a great job and always makes sure he checks all is well with our tootsies including feeling the pulses in them and checking if we can feel touches. Have you ever had that done...you shut your eyes and a tiny plastic 'wire' is used to touch the surface of the foot. It is a very necessary test for diabetics as over the years many diabetics have lost their feet or even their legs because of lack of circulation.
The coming week has no appointments listed in my diary so maybe out to lunch one day for a change. The old Rockingham hotel seems to have been taken over and they are now offering quite inexpensive lunches for seniors on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. If the weather stays fine a drive down there may be a good idea to blow the cobwebs away.
I trust everyone else has had a good week and that whatever you had hoped for is happening in your part of the world.
