What's on your mind right now?
« on: November 23, 2020, 06:29:58 AM »
What's a forum without one of these bad boys?

How is everyone doing? What is everyone up to this week?  :D

This is so surreal, like a time warp! I love that you're here, B.  :)  As for what's on my mind... 2020 has been a very challenging year in a lot of ways, so I'm just looking forward to New Year's Eve, and hopefully a brighter 2021 for everybody.

2020 is really bizarre year. Right now I'm recovering from covid. I got very lucky with it coz all I experienced was breathing problems and heartache. But still I can't waint till next monday, where I will be able to finally leave my flat for the first time in 3 weeks and go to work. I miss human interactions so much.  :(

How scary Rhianon! I hope you're feeling better now? I hope you enjoy your newfound freedom!

I am working from home half of this week as South Australia went into a lockdown at the end of this week, but has reverted back to standard restrictions. Which means we can only have half of the office in at a time. I like working from home, but it means I can't do my own work when I'm not in the office (just due to the nature of what my role entails), so I've fallen a bit behind and it's stressing me out. But oh well, these are unprecedented times and it's completely out of my control!

We have been lucky to remain so far untouched by Covid. Both Sebastian and I had a case of whooping cough earlier this year (which we thought might have been Covid, but thankfully not), and he had Strep Throat a couple of weeks ago. What a year to come down with flu-like diseases!

Oh well, the cat certainly likes us working from home lol

What an awful year. Hopefully, we'll get out of the second lockdown here in France on the 15 of december.

There are two doves nesting in one of the trees under our alfresco and Pepsi is obsessed. Just goes to show how much of a threat she is if they're prepared to nest right near where she lazes about all day lol

Hope you're feeling better soon, Rianon.

As for myself, things are a bit crazy. My wife's mother is going in for brain surgery in a few weeks, and her dad, who works for the merchant navy, has just left on a four month trip. I'm still looking for work after being made redundant during the first UK lockdown. Spending my time applying for jobs, writing and drawing. It's all a bit crazy.

I hope everything goes well with your mother in law's surgery JD! And good luck with the job hunt, it seems like it's been a crazy time over there in the UK this year  :shock:

I ordered some really nice Christmas plates from Williams Sonoma, and one of them arrived broken. It's such a silly thing but I'm really upset about it  :eh:

Thanks B.  :wub:

I can understand that. It's SO frustrating when it happens. You'd think the post would take care of people's stuff.

I am officially on Christmas holidays! Well, until Christmas Eve, but I only go back for the one day  :lol1:

Bring on waking up naturally with no alarm, reading, watching movies, relaxing...  :shock:

It's been an exhausting year.

How's everyone doing in 2021 so far? We may have got rid of Trump (thank the gods), but COVID is still hanging around...

My wife's mum is doing really well after her operation, but we can't really see her because of lockdown.
I'm doing ok, although still unemployed. Sent of my 61st application since being made redundant. It's rather starting to get to me.
On a happier note, my sister had another baby, a little boy named Cooper, that's that's incredibly rad!   :biggrin:

Hope everyone is doing well out in LLT-land!  :wub:

Congratulations on becoming an uncle again JD. :wub: Little Cooper is very sweet. I pray that the right job finds you soon, and that your mother-in-law makes a full recovery.

Not much has happened thus far this year, other than sadly several deaths in my family. So to keep our spirits up, my husband and I have been trying to celebrate as many different festivals as we can, in lockdown-friendly ways. This Chinese New Year is the year of the Ox, which is my animal, so I've got a special dinner planned, and we're decorating this week with red paper lanterns and yellow paper peonies, and we have the Lego Spring Lantern Festival set to build.  :happy:
