Hello Hello3 and people!

Is it Friday already! ?? damn I forgotten to take my bin out last night!

lt has been a very "worrisome" week - well Weeks and Months even But nothing as much as when Covid is pracitally on my doorstep! And with both my mothers in nursing homes!

I'm feeling very mentally and physically "drained"! I guess the vast majority of us Aussies would be!

l'm trying to maneuver my way around online shopping. And have become "friends" with Ebay! Its' like a huge department store! Thanks to being gamble free I'm able to spend a little and I absolutely LOVE love love my brand new pair of UGG moccasins!

Stay Safe everyone and please comply to our new rules!

Mona

Hi everyone welcome to tonight's Chatty Tuesday.

Just like that we're into August! How are you all doing?

It's been a pretty challenging week, particularly for those in Victoria with stage 4 restrictions and other states starting to increase restrictions.

It all seemed surreal at first but has become very real! How is everyone managing during this time?

Thank you for giving us an update on how you are going @Mona58

It must be very difficult having both your mothers in nursing homes. How are things going for you this week?

Fantastic to hear you've been gamble free and able to spoil yourself a bit as a result :);

Self-care is absolutely crucial right now, what are some things you all are doing to look after yourself?

My go to has been exercising indoors using a fitness app, cooking and some art work. I find anything hands-on a great distraction and allows me to practice some mindfulness.

Would love to hear what your go to activities have been, everyone is welcome to join in.
