I wrote this a while ago and since I don't have anything to publish for tomorrow, this will do. It was written when we were extremely locked down at some point. We could go out for food and exercise, and a couple of other reasons.
Rise at 6.55. Sit on balcony for a few minutes and make sure the 6.57 tram to West Coburg is on time, proving all is well in the world.
Get back into bed listen to the ten minute 7.00 o'clock ABC radio news. I leave my little digital radio on until R gets up and then switch on the mantel digital radio so we can both hear it. I tune in and out of radio depending on what I find interesting.
Because of my osteoarthritis I can't lie in bed with my tablet anymore. I sit in my armchair watching Youtube videos on my tablet. Revisit balcony. The 7.16 and 7.22 trams to Toorak are on time. I make a cup of instant coffee.
8am I turn on desktop computer and and answer emails, answer blog comments, look at new blog posts by others and comment. I also check other social media. I take medications at 8.30. Sitting at the desktop might last until 9.30.
8.30 I hear R's phone alarm go off. 9.10 R gets out of bed.
Sleep well hon? Yes. You? Yes.
There is no rush to do anything. We manage to be showered and dressed by 10.30. I've had some cereal for breakfast. R doesn't eat breakfast.
We drive to the big green hardware shed. We buy some sealant for R's shower tap and a tree for Mother for her birthday. At 87, she is optimistic about a seeing a tree grow to fruition.
We drive on to a supermarket and I find chilli fish tins on special for $1.25 so I buy two tins. We buy pre made sandwiches at the supermarket and drive further on to a beach side cafe where R buys coffee and we find a lonely sheltered seat to eat our sandwiches and drink out coffee white staring out to sea. What is that boat? Ah, I have an app. I found out what it was.
Home and I empty dishwasher. R alternates between napping and watching tv in his bedroom between 1 and 3. I go out to see something, walk somewhere or travel somewhere.
This day I caught the 58 tram to South Yarra Station, the all stations stopping train to Laverton. and then the express train back to the city from Laverton. There were a few interesting people on the trains but none of real note and none to fall in love with.
Home by 4 and attend to matters of the internet and watch some more Youtube train videos.
Plan a holiday inspired by a Youtuber.
Left over roast lamb with vegetables for dinner. Watch some tv while on the desktop. Bed around 11pm.
