It wasn't a bad year for us. We has some computer problems, well who didn't, and they want to put driverless cars on the roads! We had a new kitchen installed, with which we are very pleased. We had two holidays, one to Perth and our Victorian/Southern New South Wales road trip. We didn't buy anything major for The Highrise, though I did buy R a Samsung 7 phone for his birthday. The next reno will be the very dated bathrooms, maybe this year. R is determined to spend our money so there is nothing left for others to inherit. Tuesday we go into town to update our wills. It is a little disconcerting as I approach 60 and R 70 to know this will be the last kitchen we will ever renovate, and ditto bathrooms.
Next years Euro holiday is planned and mostly paid for.
Generally though it hasn't been a great year. The great hope firecracker Turnbull turned out to a damp fizzer. Right wing politics around the world seems to be dominating. The writing was on the wall. Why do politicians not listen?
I remember something from the early days of the net, Lucky/Unlucky, where you had to guess the outcome of what looked like a bad situation. You could have been in the wrong place at the wrong time in the world and been blown to smithereens by a militant Moslem made bomb, but I expect you are much more likely to be killed in a terrible car crash.
Terrorism is about terrorising people. Don't fall for it and live your life.
