    Yeah, reasonable concerns @Damaged_Armour. Definitely not an easy one... As a suggestion, I heard of a lot of people that walked in and just waited until they got the Pfizer after everyone with priority and what not had theirs on that day. Worth the shot (pun not intended). Nurses are more than happy to give it out to anyone that wants it. :);
    I understand its frightening reading about deaths, blood cloths and the potential fertility issues... But there's a lot of mixed messages too out there in the media. It's obviously a very personal choice, so gotta go with what makes you more comfortable.
    It is a personal choice, but eventually we're going to be corralled like sheep into taking the vaccine, with a multitude of restrictions requiring a vaccine passport, you won't be able to do much, possibly not even work without that vaccine passport.
    The Pfizer vaccine is scarce in Sydney, I know some one that booked for it last week and he'll be getting it in October. I tried to book, but no appointments available.

    Hi @Anita44, no worries. Its really nice of you to pick up your daughter after her shift. I'm sure she really appreciates it (family first). :);

    Oh, no @Damaged_Armour, I had no idea the supply was so low over there. :( And you've touched a very realistic point. Time will tell.

    Hello @Menz199,

    Nice to see you around. :); I'm pretty good despite lockdown, thanks. Glad to hear you've been good and work is good too. Oh, these lockdowns.... I highly doubt ours will be lifted on Thursday too.

    Still managing to get some walks/running in after work? Any post-challenge challenges yet?

    I've been a little bit slack with the exercise, but haven't given up, just got to find a bit more motivation. A bit hard at the moment but i'll do my best.

    No post-challenge challenges yet, but I was just reading your post on my thread. I think it's a great idea to think of other 100 day challenges.

    Yeah, you have to take it easy on yourself. Gotta roll with how you're feeling. It's also okay to not want to do it, the motivation will kick back in when its the right time.

    I'm glad you found the idea useful @Menz199. :); Still having Tuesday a la Omelette dinner?

    Very true @Lovely Cat Lady, the motivation will come back when I'm ready.

    No Omelette tonight, just some frozen fish and vegetables. I did want omelette but am missing ingredients and I'm not leaving the house if I can help it at the moment. Only for work and if necessary a large shop. I normally do lots small shops. But I'd rather only go for a large shop at the moment. I'm probably saving a bit of money too.

    Fair enough, better safe than sorry. Yeah, lockdowns do seem to be good for money saving. And regarding what you wrote in your thread about not hearing from the job applications yet, things also slow down with lockdown. Give it a bit of time @Menz199, I've seen it happen here a lot.

    Yes, I need to be a bit more patient I suppose.
