You wouldn't need to. Just worried about you because riots reported in 40 cities.

Glad you have partner and walked.

Still in pain, probably because there was such a long gap between treatments. Physio not worried if I take 2-3 days off to recover. Need to get new wheat pack.

Online order - restricted to two frozen fruit.

we've had a lot of coverage because they have spread to so many cities. if they were near you, you would know so that means you are safe. good.

physio found lots of painful spots and said take it easy today. bitterly cold and heavy rain so no temptation to go out.

used to have a rocking chair at home when I was a kid and loved it. Enjoy yours.

glad you're enjoying your walking. envy you with better weather ahead,

America doesn't seem to be a very good place to live at the moment with covid and now the riots. I hope they aren't too close to you.

I did too.

Can't seem to get warm at the moment and it isn't even winter too.

Have made online order for winter sweater, etc. Free gift will be a back scratcher. Wonder how they choose these things.

enjoy your weekend too.

msg.2

didn't sleep well. last night.

Have just googled an address which sent me to a site which showed the message: "You have just come to a site that isn't there".

misunderstood. thought you meant because of dust from open window, glad you finally slept.

cleaner came, then chatted with neighbour and daughter, then gardener came, then chatted with neighbour again. very late lunch, then sorted out some problems by phone with computer tech.

it's getting dark so early that it's harder to fit in a walk. weather permitting, must try again.

hope you slept well.

that must be painful. have you got, or can you get, any eye drops?

computer tech this morning. was very apologetic about the time spent and cost. said some people accuse him of doing unnecessary work to earn more. has spent a lot of time with me but only did what I needed and, in any case, I could watch what he was doing on the screen. as I said before, i'm hoping to charge his fee to my government package. ladybird is happy because I can now order food online again.

visited neighbour later but she's learned and if she offers me food, rarely now, she asks before she serves it so it doesn't even get to the table.

hope you manage to sleep well.

did I tell you physio will start visiting again next week?

yes, company and i both contribute.

sorry you got rained out.
i walked nice distance at nice pace. i'm so dependent on having a partner. we're both hoping she doesn't have to go in to work. i won't in near future.

almost finished for tuesday. waiting for instructions from boss on two problems caused by working from home. have to admit it's not quite as good even tho i want to continue till after second wave of virus. will be able to have holiday tomorrow (which is a holiday here).

so do I.

as it's a pension does the company contribute if you do? here company has to pay towards superannuation which employee receives on retirement

bitterly cold. started to walk but then rain started.

gradually relaxing a few restrictions but still social distancing and I don't think I shall be going back to u3a for a while. wouldn't really feel like risking it at the moment anyway..

tech accomplished a lot but still some things to sort out,

company insurance plan? does the company insure you or just suggest you insure yourself with their plan?

good about walking.

could be perfectly ok without mask but if you aren't happy about it don't go. you've been so good until now that it would be silly for you to take a risk if you're doubtful. only you can decide.

you too.

glad you enjoyed letter.

at least tech accomplished. sorry you missed visit cuz of him.
great you didn't eat at night.

yes i slept well and hope you did, too.

have a new guy in charge of me at the company pension plan. spoke to him over an hour. he wants to get paid to manage my money and sell me stuff.

worked a lot few exceptions take so much time. and related emails. my boss added a little extra work.

took off for a very nice walk. my partner is tired of being stuck in her home. good for me.

Another walking partner wants to walk with me next week but she won't wear a mask. she had the virus and has tested negative. i don't know.

have a healthy and enjoyable weekend.

good and good.

mixed day. very pleasant and informative letter from niece.

computer tech got appointments mixed so, instead of coming this morning, came this afternoon. had to cancel visit arranged with someone else. by the time tech left it was nearly dark.

good, he fixed quite a lot of things provider couldn't but many things are not as easy to access as before nbn. he was here for nearly four hours so it will cost a fair bit. still it had to be done and chat and phone sessions with provider were useless - finally was told to get a computer tech.

i'm as bad as you. Didn't got to bed until 1a.m. this morning, woke at 3.30 so got up and sent emails, etc. didn't eat.

hope you're sleeping well and that I will too tonight.

cold but sunny so managed a short walk.

neighbour, daughter and granddaughter came round this morning and another couple came round this afternoon. nice to see them but she brought me a large slice of home-made lemon cake. everyone seems to feel being restricted to home is a good excuse for eating. not overweight but don't want to be.

much prefer colouring book and pencils I received recently. have not used them yet but when, if, I do, it won't do me any harm.

am sure tomorrow will go well as you have prepared for it.

i estimate he was 70. probably worked close to 50 years. very bright.

glad you had a visit. sad about husband/father.

temperature taking is a good idea.noninvasive and safety increasing. not enough though.

very scary.

very brief walk today. no partner.

ready for tomorrow.

sorry about your former boss. how old was he?

visited neighbour, then daughter joined us. had bought some beautiful, lightweight blankets for her father as he feels the cold. they're now allowed to visit him but have to make an appointment and only two people allowed in for 30 minutes. have to use hand disinfectant and temperature taken every time they go through a door.

definitely work at home as long as you can. there's a study being done to discover what the long-term effects of having had the virus could be. so far it's depressing - could be organ damage, etc.

sleep well.

your technology really is frustrating.

today i walked my neighbor's mother home. not so far, but enough to make my foot hurt.

am trying to arrange to continue working from home. don't know when the government will open us up, but i'm not ready to go in.

i finished the online course i was taking for work. i also almost finished a project that i must submit tomorrow.

i'm tired. at least i went out even if i didn't sleep enough.

yeah, we gotta do what we can for our gums. not interested, but...

good you found walking partners and congratulations on being so active.

i'm worried about teeth and gums. apart from the fact that I haven't had the jaw x-ray dentist wanted, I always build up a lot of plaque and it's well past the time it should have been removed.

have done some courses in the past but at present always seem to have problems to sort out. wanted to put in food order yesterday but, because i'd changed internet provider, couldn't log in. took three long phone calls before I could enter my new login and get details of past orders.

we - does that mean you have a partner?

I know but have been sleeping badly, then drifting off in the early hours and sleeping late. puts the whole day out.

glad you're enjoying what you're doing. neighbour's daughter, who was working at home, was made redundant but was lucky to get another one within a few days. problem is she will have to go in to the new company to work.

at one stage doc was worried because I was losing weight but know lots of people who appreciate them. just need willpower.

not as often as I should.

hope he won't get a cold.

cleaner came, brought me in some bread. have a couple of people who will shop for me if I just need a few things. know what you mean. last time I bought toilet rolls they were a ridiculous price.

got the draught excluder fitted on my front door today so hopefully it won' be so cold when I sit in that room tonight,

when she gave me the last presents, before I opened them, I said: "are you trying to fatten me up?" Her answer was: "You don't need to worry, you're thin enough". As she's bigger than I am there was nothing more I could say.

too long at computer. hope you stood up and walked around at intervals.

making progress, managed to get contacts back on outlook. have emailed phone company to try to get message bank back.

went to bed late woke too early. thought of trying for a short walk later but neighbour came round and we sat in her garden for about ten minutes before we were both frozen and went into her place.

by the time I came back it was nearly dark so I had to sort the rubbish and take it to the bin because they collect early tomorrow.

physio has already given me exercises to do and recommended a free online program but he can reach places which I can't.

Hope your cold didn't get worse.

can you explain the problem with edible gifts. tell her you are going on a diet cuz of lockdown weight gain, so she won't feel bad about past gifts. (hey, i'm proud of me.)

don't know the current weather. was on computer all day.(12 hours!)
--fixing my goof done essentially. don't know if there will be fallout.
--meetings were a little hard today, too. didn't get up.

did kinda move around to music in the evening. gotta prioritize this now.

tech!! hope all resolves soon.

sorry about your pain. can physio advise you online? don't stress over the rest. will work out with time.

she's a very caring person but some of the presents she gave me in the past were edible.

good for you walking. strange we're both having such cold weather.

At times computer does it for me. especially I, but I don't type them in.

Session with computer tech yesterday and have now lost word. Microsoft won't change administrator to new provider, which is causing difficulties.

Hopefully printer s now set up. Scanner will be useful but, although I could use fax, it would be too expensive.

Next to tackle is new provider - no message bank or caller identity on new landline, etc. I still have the task of notifying everyone of change of phone number and email address.

I'm not sleeping well either, partly because i keep thinking of which problem to tackle next and partly because of pain, no physio. Are you worrying about your goof because of work consequences or that you may not be coping as well as you would like?

Take care of yourself. I hope the cold doesn't get any worse.

i don't remember you telling me about your neighbor's daughter. i'm glad for you. don't understand the "but". why shouldn't you keep presents?

one pound over goal sounds like a dream to me but you mustn't continue the trend.

forgot to tell you i walked a mile yesterday and visited outside. it was cloudy and cold. maybe even snow flurries. hope i didn't increase my cold.

neither of us uses capital (upper case) letters.

i'm not sleeping enough. my goof is on my mind. i am able to nap, sometimes.

I agree. I'm not removing personal restrictions for a while even if government does.

glad your goof will be OK.

need to have a long session by remote with printer company and with provider by phone tomorrow. hope to have more free time after that.

you're right about exercise. weighed myself for the first time in ages and was a pound over goal weight. last time I was 2lbs under.

Think I told you my neighbour's daughter decided to become my adopted daughter as I had nobody in Australia. Came round with presents today but one was a book and another a set of aromatherapy candles so I can happily keep them.

Take care of yourself.

Did you eat?

printer, all done except for a couple of things which can't be fixed by remote, printer OK printing, needs download for scan and fax. Company rang to fix it by remote ten minutes before computer tech booking so will have to wait until Monday.

I'm sorry your mistake caused you so much trouble. It's too easy to do something inadvertently. At least with no visitors you can use the computer.

Happy weekend and happy Mother's Day. I don't suppose they have removed any restrictions yet. Do you skype?

glad you can shut your door.

glad your computer is almost done. hope the printer gets sorted out soon.

good your garage is being cleared out

unfortunate everything happened in one day.

i sent an email by mistake before removing an attachment i forgot about. colossally stupid. i had to redo his work because of it. i think i improved it emoticon someone nice helped me. took me about 6 hours. (he helped for 2 or 3) . i just sent it for approval of what i've done so far before i continue.

at least i moved a little during a meeting today.

happy weekend. mine may be very busy cuz of my mistake.at least it's not health. will try not to let it affect health.

painters arrived at 7.30 but have finished doors, rest is outside so won't need to freeze any more.

decided to pay for computer tech to fix computer by remote control. long session. nearly sorted, just a couple of minor things to finish today.

after he went someone came to help me clear out old cartons from garage, then someone brought in purchases. lunch at 4.00.

Watching evening news at about 7.15 and pitch black outside when guy arrived to deliver new printer. Family business and not far from where I live. Said he doesn't usually do it but offered to set it up. Took ages as it also has scanner and fax, Same make as old black and white one I've had for about 20 years and has never given me any problems. Need to contact him again as download he left running never completed.

Will have some me time tomorrow but think stress is worse for me than lack of exercise at the moment.

Good about new account.Enjoy your new phone. battery shouldn't run out so quickly.

Don't think it would be real jade. That's very expensive.

7 and 8 are both too early!

no, we see the computer screens.

new online account straightened out. husband says they will drop rate, too.

ordered another phone with a speaker. not sure i'll get my money back on the first one. i enjoy the speaker on my cordless phone, but the battery runs out after half an hour. i've been using a borrowed phone. i cannot hold the phone and type.

wish your tech worked. such a hassle.
hope you are moving. i walked half a mile in the drizzle. not enough.

ordered vitamins and toothpaste and stuff. got a free jade roller. smooth green type. think it's a fake www.bing.com/search?q=jade+roller

had to book in advance and usually our autumn [fall] is quite pleasant, record low temperatures this year.

does that mean you can't see each other?

I find speaker very useful as I can be doing other things while I wait for the connection, type and hear it from another room. You won't regret it.

Now I'm really in trouble. Email address keeps reverting Can only send messages on laptop and can only receive messages, use paypal and credit cards on old mobile on old provider account,

Early morning tomorrow. Painters start work at 7.00, which I didn't know before, arrived at 8.00 when I was still in bed.

why r u painting in cold weather if the door must be open?
you must move!!

worked a long time today. got up and moved during 2 of the meetings while listening. got out a little bit.

just tried to transfer money to get higher rate. trouble with setting up online account. want to change something.

ordered a new phone. got one without speaker which is essential so i can type while i'm on it. not worth the time i'm spending to get the refund, but hate to lose the money. time better spent on above transfer.

did. laptop emails not working so still have to use mobile.

good you walked. amount I'm doing at the moment is not worth recording.

true but seem to have non-stop tradesmen, phone calls, etc.

freezing indoors at the moment. painters sanding outside door so it's open. even putting on A/C wouldn't help.

sounds good.

envy you.

I occasionally do challenges but not participating like before.

maybe we could ask lynn.

message appeared on my laptop from nephew but has disappeared. frustrating - thought it was working ok.

keep posting 'cos i'd miss you if you stopped.
