    Hi @Jimap,
    I think Queensland is now known as the lucky state indeed, hehe. Fingers crossed! :);
    Wow! That's massive. Congratulations! Understandably, it's always hard to leave a family home, especially one where you raised your children in. But those memories will stay with you forever. :o It's normal and okay to have all of those mixed emotions as this is all a really big change in your life.
    House hunting sounds like something really exciting to look forward to. :D

    I’m coping alright, I’m a bit over it though, I love this time of year and always love getting out and exploring and going on long walks, Except the magpies of course haha.
    Hahaha, the magpies! A family of magpies decided to put their nest in the tree in front of my balcony and now I'm constantly avoiding eye contact so they won't come and swoop me. LOL.

    All right folks, time to wrap-up tonight's Chatty Tuesday.

    @Jimap, that's great advice, hahaha. Thanks! :D
    I'm really glad to hear where you're at and how you're going. Keep us posted.
    I'm sure there's many new and exciting connections that will come into your life in the place that will be your new home. :);

    @Menz199, hope the rest of your week keeps going well. Fingers crossed we'll both be out of lockdown in time for exploring around nature in summer. :D

    Always really nice chatting with you both.
    Thank you for joining in tonight. Until next time. :o

    Hi @Lovely Cat Lady my week has been quiet as kids are spending a few days with their dad and I am home alone. Sometimes I like time by myself to do things for myself but sometimes having no one other than my dog here can make my mind go crazy…still trying to find a house to buy or rent..this housing market is ridiculous at the moment..hope your week is going well😊

    Hey @Jimap,
    The paradoxes of life, hey. Sounds about right, me time is nice until it's not, hehe. Hopefully the dog is good company at least. :D
    Oh, I bet... It's great that you've got some time to decide.
    My week's going well too, thank you. Still chasing other people's dogs in the park, upgraded to taking treats with me. :cool:
    When do you get the kids back?

    Hello all
    How is everyone’s week going?’
    I’m going alright, as usual not much has changed, I’m still in Lockdown and will still be for some time.

    Hi @Menz199,
    Good to hear you're going alright! Still making Omelette on Tuesdays?
    Oh, no! Sorry to heart that. Aside from the veggie garden, thinking of any other house or personal projects you could do in the meantime?

    No, I actually cooked a nice chicken, mushroom and asparagus bake.

    Vege gardens going well. Other projects could be possible, not sure what though.
