    Hi @Anita44,

    Sorry to hear you're in snap lockdown, but I'm glad you're still able to work even if its not too busy. Sounds like the house is coming together very well, you and your partner have done an excellent job. Yes, Australia has been doing amazing in the Olympics. Any sport in particular you like watching?

    Wow, day 85! I bet the remainder 15 days will go by in a blink of an eye. Congratulations for all the effort you've put in throughout your challenge and all the achievements you've made so far. :cool: The final sprint!!! Let the countdown begin... :D

    Hi lovely cat lady

    How are you doing?

    Oh the Olympics I like to watch almost everything when I turn the TV on, cos they all in different time so I watch when I can. I love watch swimming and girl soccer, running, girl basketball but sometime they play too late so I just have to go to sleep.

    Yesterday my partner parents come to our house for dinner, cos they been away for six week, I was telling his mum that I have not been gamble the whole time they been away, she was very proud of me, I tell her that I don't have the urge and I don't want get addicted to pokies again. Cos I am very happy with my new me now

    Hi @Anita44,

    I'm very good, thank you. :); Oh no, sorry to hear about the lockdown being extended. But yes, at least there's still one more week of Olympics to watch (I'm a big fan too). :D

    Really glad to hear your partner's mum told you she is proud of you. Its so important having the support of close friends and family. :o

    You guys are smashing those home mods, it will all be done in a nutshell. :cool:

    Kudos for reaching day 86!!! And only 14 days more to go, you go Anita!
