Also to my Dad’s dear friend Haley and her family. Thank you for your loving words of condolences. He spoke of you all often and when he received your beautiful photos two days before he went home to Jesus, he was full of smiles. -Chrissy
My dad passed away just after 2am yesterday, Saturday July 10th. The on duty RN was able to alert me in time for me to sit with him until he was gone. I didn’t have any sleep before or after, so I was exhausted by the time the undertakers left a 9.30am. With this horrid lockdown there will be just three plus the celebrant at the graveside funeral. Norm, myself and our son Ken, who lives within the lockdown boundaries, and where we’ll stay until we head home – outside the lockdown area. If the lockdown is just for another two weeks we’ll remain in the Sydney lockdown. If it’s for a longer period as they have predicted we’ll head home under the Covid rules at that time, including a self isolation in our own home and Covid tests. It’s difficult to plan anything beyond a day or two at a time with restrictions changing at short notice.
With most of my photos on my desktop at home, I won’t be able to add more until we return home..
The koala is a national icon on the path to extinction. Or is it? Professor Tim Flannery investigates the story behind the headlines, meeting researchers working to understand the threats koalas face, and how we can avoid them. Watch Tuesday 16 Feb, 8.30pm.
After Tuesday night, the film will be available to watch on-demand at ABC’s iview or their website.
Please Note: This is the Australian ABC and Australian Eastern Summer time.
While the garden has been left to the mercy of a wet winter and poor drainage, I was not neglecting my writing…well maybe a little. Except when hubby was working from home, I managed to write some new poems. These will be posted in August. I do hope you enjoy my most recently written pieces.
It’s finally happened. A new Category named 🐨 Koala Antics has been created for koala lovers everywhere. I’m not sure how often I’ll post in Koala Antics but be sure to let me know if I don’t post often enough.
Yes, we have sold up and heading to a better climate. The next few weeks will be hectic so I will only be online as time allows. I have scheduled some new posts and some archived posts for you to enjoy during that time. I will of cause try to respond to comments when I can. Your websites and blogs will be my only reading when I have the pleasure of down time but I may not have time to leave you more than a “like”. I will leave a new post when we’re settled enough to return to a more normal routine. Thanks to everyone ahead of time for supporting Me on Riverside Peace.
We have traveled north to finalise details with our new home only to be stranded with road closures and fires to return back to Sydney for the last few weeks before the removal truck arrives. We are safe and this is our evacuation point if the alarm is given. There’s a lot of smoke and ash at times throughout the day but we cope with it. 😉
Please keep those who are now homeless or still in danger in your prayers.
