Well, Thursday morning R was in great back pain. I had an xray that morning for my neck pain. I came in form the balcony and he said 'you can do this more quickly that I can. Get dressed and go down and collect my new phone'. Aye aye Sir.
It took ten days to arrive from Hong Kong from Kogan. Honestly, if the Samsung S21 cost $100 more to buy it in a shop in Australia, it would be worth it. (per a tv ad seen today, $300 more to buy here at a discount store) It didn't come with an electricity plug phone charger. The phone charging socket is the new universal plug, that no company seems to be using. Later in the day we went to a phone shop in Chapel Street and bought a charging cord, a phone light clear phone cover for both his and my phone as my old cover was yellowing, and a screen protector film for his new phone.
While we doing this, Mother's house was settled as I checked email on my phone at about 11.15. What a relief!
When I spoke to Mother this afternoon, I raised my my voice, very rare for me! No, ABI Brother does not go on Friday to take the rubbish bin in from the nature strip. It is no longer your house, not your rubbish bin and he will be trespassing. He may even run in to the buyers. She soon returned to moaning about her medical issues, wishing she was not here, it's no sort of life. I felt very inclined to agree with her. Then she said I had a dream that I was going to jump off a highrise building (hopefully not our balcony) but at the last minute she couldn't (no matter how her children would be cheering her on).
The afternoon was spent sorting out R's new phone, and lovely it is, then me doing what I call The Sums, That is fortnightly adjusting money between R and myself and paying bills online.
After many nights of cooking a home meal, Household Management rebelled and we went to the Dick Whittington Hotel for dinner as we are now out of five day lock down. It was a very pleasant evening just on our own.
We had alcohol at home, so no need to visit the Dick Liquour bottle shop. The Dick Cheese Platter has thankfully disappeared from the menu. I did like the helpful toilet directional sign though.
