I'm coming back up for air.
Over the last 12 months I've been thrust into the heart of COVID 19 response via my job and now that we are out of the worst of it (did I just jinx it saying that?) I need to get back to simple activities that sustain me.
I abandoned Blogger for the sirens call of WordPress, but honestly have found WordPress just as difficult and fiddly to post easily and quickly ..... sigh (but it is much prettier!). Do I come back here and carry on as if nothing has happened or do I persist with WordPress. Dunno. But I'm here today.
We have been doing so much around the house getting it ready for full retirement (M has now retired) adding new fences, solar system, new gutters, fixing the leaky roof, redoing all the gardens, installing a brand new kitchen and stockpiling pantry, reorganising our finances to support M's retirement, putting down paving, creating new gardens and workspaces, setting up a sewing/work room, ripping up 40 year old carpet, helping daughters move out into their own homes, getting rid of 6 skip bins of rubbish from around the old house ..... and so much more.
Despite the employment crisis we have been so very fortunate that 4 or our 5 daughters have full time permanent jobs. Two are registered nurses, one is a high school teacher and the other has recently won a position in busy local office.
I've been researching and testing out many financial products over the last 18 months too - some really good, others terrible. So, I'll get around to telling you all about that too.
So you see, there's so much to write about and catch you all up on.
Anyway, I'll get my act together and get cracking
See you all around the traps.
