    Hi @Lovely Cat Lady
    How are you this week?
    I'm doing well thanks.
    I'm not in lockdown, but I do fear that is a possibility.

    Hi @Menz199,

    I'm good, thanks! :o Glad to hear you're doing well too. :);

    It's all very uncertain. From the experience we've had in Victoria, once you go into lockdown cases will still keep rising at first and then there's a sudden drop because the infectious period has been contained... So fingers crossed it plays out that way too and it doesn't get to the point of an extended lockdown in the whole state.

    Yes fingers crossed, I live near Newcastle which isn't too far from Sydney. That's why I'm a bit concerned.

    Are you having a busy week? Mine's been good so far.

    Yeah, an understandable concern @Menz199. All we can do is follow the health guidelines: social distancing, face mask, wash your hands... This really saves lives. :);

    Honestly, my favourite cat passed away one week ago, so I made sure I kept busy all week and weekend and now I need to catch up on some rest. So trying to have a more relaxed week this week.

    Thank you, that's very kind of you! All good, I processed it last week. :o Yes, surprising how they become family. Do you have pets @Menz199? :);

    Unfortunately not, my land lord doesn't allow pets.
    But if I could I would. My parents have a Labrador cross kelpie dog at their place. He is the best dog and loves attention. As all Labradors do, I miss him a lot. He's a very special dog to me and I think of him often, especially when I see other Labs. If this COVID situation wasn't too bad, I'd go home and spend time with him and my family.
