Wednesday Roundup

Wednesday, 25 March 2020
Hello Dear Reader,

And welcome to another Wednesday Roundup where I do I brain dump of whats been happening around my home and some thoughts that are swirling around in my brain today.

Life is changing, every day I walk into work, I walk into something new, on Monday every room (consultation rooms, meeting rooms and the tea room) had a sign instructing only 2 people to be in that area at one time, then on Monday afternoon when I went for my 6 monthly dental checkup, there was a black line in front of reception indicating to stay behind the line, the assistant also took my health fund card at the end of the consultation with a gloved hand.

As you may know by now, I don't go out much, only to work, the hairdresser once a month and Simply Good and the Golden Circle Factory Outlet about every 4 to 6 weeks, so I really haven't seen first hand how our immediate world has changed. What and how has your life changed in the last little while?

Now on with the roundup-

On My Mind-

Little else than the Covid-19 Pandemic.

On the Breakfast Plate-

Our weekday breakfasts are always the same, homemade muesli with fruit and homemade vanilla yogurt. The fruit this week was fresh peaches, bananas, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. Our weekend breakfast was smoked salmon on toast (this is the bread I made this week) with sour cream and capers topped with a perfect egg with a side of golden fried haloumi. I bought the smoked salmon and haloumi on Friday afternoon on the way home from work as a special weekend treat.

On My Reading Pile-

I have been reading this Australian Government Department of Health official Civid-19 website to keep up to date with the pandemic every morning.

On My TV-

I only watch the news at 6 pm then the TV is switched off

On the Menu This Week-

Favourite meal this past week was a fabulous Chickpea Curry, I am actually going to make it again this coming week and take step by step photos of it and post the recipe for you, I think it's a beaut little recipe.

From the Camera-

This was my walk into work on Monday. I choose to park in the back streets near the hospital instead of the temporary staff carpark as it is further away from where I park. This temporary carpark is being used as a new high rise car park is being built at the moment. I know I should just get back on my bike and ride from home, sometimes I have to park so far away I might as well walk from home.

Looking Around the House-

I am happy with what we have furniture wise, the only thing I would like to do is have our lovely old dining setting re-polished and reupholstered. Happily that will be happening soon. All the other furniture will see us out.

Housework I'm Not Looking Forward To Today or This Week-

I know I keep saying this one, but I really do need to make a start on cleaning the shutters, windows and security screens. After a long hot summer the security screens are full of dust as are the shutters. Maybe if I keep mentioning it on here I will actually do it!

Your turn, do a roundup of your life and I will post it on here-

Not seeing my immediate family and friends is where life has changed and I'm doing a weekly shop rather than 2-3 times a week. Stay safe. Kathy
