Beginning with my choice of pretty flowers for the week. Love the colour of these.
Not a lot to report at all. Gee, it was cold yesterday!!! As I sat at my desk I had a rug over my lap and ended up putting on a woolly jacket as well. This up and down weather I am sure is not good for one. Now our week is quickly warming up to the high 30s next weekend. Wondering if it will go back down again or will this be the actual beginning of an early summer. Hope not although we've been promised a hot one.
I think I've told you before about the son of a lifetime friend of mine. He came home from New South Wales when his mum was ill with Parkinsons and then cancer and became her carer for several years. He remained in WA but has a lady friend in NSW and they visit with each other every year or so. He drove across months ago and I thought maybe he would stay but no, today he rang to say he is back in WA and continuing to clear out his possessions from a friend's garage. Richard is now in his 50s and I begin to think perhaps he never will settle down completely. It was great to hear from him and we'll meet up with him soon for a meal and a good chin wag. Strange thing is that I only mentioned Richard to Phil about 20 minutes before he rang. That has happened before with Richard ringing within a short time of me mentioning him. It's not as though he telephones that often either. Quite uncanny!!
Do most of you still have landline telephones? I prefer ours to using the mobile and yet if we call local and STD number using our mobile the calls are free. Phil often does that and he seems to be quite au fait with the little mobile Telstra donated to us free of charge. I am wondering when people are connected to the NBN if they will still have their landline. We keep hearing about how expensive it is and it's behind schedule etc but no actual information about how it will work if the facility runs past one's home. Government are funny that way....lots of talk but little important information. The NBN is so far away from our area I doubt we will ever have to worry about it anyway and I am quite happy with my internet provider at $30/month. I find the internet quite quick and I seldom have a problem. Should there be one the IT geeks have never let me down and my computer is usually up and running again within minutes. NBN? Who needs it, except perhaps people in country areas and for them I feel it is really important.
That's enough silly chat for now. Hope your week is going the way you want it to go...quickly if you are looking forward to the weekend or something special.
P.S. Can anyone enlighten me about this European thingie that keeps appearing when I open my blog? Am I supposed to do something about it or with it? No idea what it's all about so hopefully all will continue as is.
