You actually like these short days and dark by 5.30pm?
Yeah - the short hours is a pain, but give me short crisp days sitting round a fire over sitting in the 45 degree afternoon sun any day
Not that I want to live in Norway or whatever. That is taking a good thing TOO far
Have memory of my youngest daughter stomping down the stairs to turn down my Sunday morning Bach organ gala. Revenge?
I got in trouble for playing “Don’t Fear The Reaper” by Blue Oyster Cult too loud and I had to point out that HIM did a cover of it.
Got a text I'd be contacted by a representative from Services Australia .... about 3 minutes later a call comes in from them
We need to confirm your wife's address as you say you live together but her's is different on our records - like 2 houses back which I quote ..... I have changed the address on My Gov which it has done, the ATO has the correct current address, Medicare has the correct current address BUT Services Australia won't process an online request for CoA ..... so I then say do not (trying to speak clearly as the SA Rep has a foreign accent) the Departments have a system that speaks to each other & her reply was somewhat jumbled so I said are the systems practising Social Distancing and she breaks into a fit of laughter and says that is the funniest thing she has heard re the systems ..... gave someone a good laugh who most probably needed it made me happy
She then let it slip the claim I had made would be approved ..... then reworded it to cover herself with the recording of the message .
Managed to walk around all day without the dreaded lower back nerve pinch.
Slowly making improvements.....at last !
This made me very happy today
Isn’t it great how you can’t lose stuff in a Kombi between the seat and that centre console that doesn’t exist
↑@ bagman quote
"WPMO is how in a “ modern car” l lose everything that falls in between the front seat and centre console .... there would have gold mine under there ......please refer to what makes me happy today thread..."
That's where I find my extra $ for maccas! @bagman. Makes me happy also.
Shit - what a morning.
Had meetings at work - get in early.
Realised I had left my mobile on the bus.
shit shit shit.
someone mentioned “find my phone”
logged on and saw it down Surry Hills.
No - it’s moving.
Must still be on the bus.
It’s coming up Elizabeth St.
Grabbed a mate and went running up to Elisabeth St. log on and it’s turned off.
Went running down to Sussex St.
No - heading back out along Victoria Rd
“TAXI - follow that bus!!!”
caught up with it at Drummoyne Oval.
Hopped out and the driver obviously knew and said “ here is your phone”
Bugger wouldn’t take any tip.
Back in the taxi for the return trip.
best $50 on a taxi I have spent in ages
Of all the times to loose a phone this weekend would have been the worst. I am about to head off and meeting up with people would have been impossible
Sounds like you’ve earned a few days off.......
Had meetings first.
Thought I was just going to have to fess up for a lost phone.
Confucious say : "never turn off phone before losing"
....Old Chinese proverb.
Day two without lower back,nerve pinches made me happy today
Look out......I'm coming back !!
All just a clever excuse to never have to do housework again......
That’s a Hollywood movie - non fiction
Wife made a decision on the style of new handles for kitchen drawers and doors
Took Dinky Dai for a day out in Port Pirie on Sunday.
Coffee and Cars get together.
Bit of shopping.
Best yiros ever for lunch...
Love the Dinky Dai ute! made me happy seeing that..
Made my day too, just the right size for the little fella in the back.
