    Looks beautiful despite being cold. Ballarat Victoria had flurries of snow this morning but nothing settled. Really cold but sun trying to come through. Keep warm everyone. Have to say I do miss a warm cosy woodburner. Rented house only has gas heating which sends me to sleep!

    Have settled back very well and made the right decision to come to Victoria where one of my daughter's lives. When I was trying to decide what the best decision for me should be I was in a dark place after Roger's death. My mind was all over the place and I made some stupid choices but 2 years on life is kinder and being near my family was certainly the right way to go. People told me not to make any decisions for at least a year and in hindsight (wonderful word) I should have listened. I am a lucky person in many ways and appreciate the path I finally chose. We spent 2 weeks touring Tasmania which was wonderful and loved it. The scenery stunning and most of all people were friendly and helpful. I can see why you love it. We really want to come again and see more but with the way things are right now it will have to wait. I hope all of you are fit and well and if you have elderly relatives they are safe. What a terrible time it is and not over yet but I guess it's history repeating itself. All the best to all your readers.

    You're doing much better than here in Ballarat Victoria. Horrible weather, cold and raining made all the worse by restrictions.

    If you sre not privatelyinsured this seems rather harsh. I would have thought Medicare would have covered something as serious as this if you are on an aussie pension. So far I am not impressed with the system and in Ballarat its very hard to even get accepted as a new patient and waiting time for a consultation can be anything up to 2weeks. I waited 2 hours yesterday for a consultation in a walk in clinic. Only 2 doctors and the waiting room was wall to wall.

    What did you do in Tassie today?

    So happy to know there is a donkey sanctuary. I have subscribed to the one in uk and now almost back in aus will do the same now for aus. Hope i get to visit.

    Counting down!

    I think you will always find work in London although it may not be exactly what you want to start with. Within reason be prepared to do anything and once you're in the workforce doors will open for you. I'm not speaking from experience. I'm too old now, but hear from others work is available but just be careful. I hope it all works out for you and your daughter and surely your relatives will keep an eye out for you. I have found a o great Airb&b in the local town I'm going to and was able to negotiate a better price because I've said I would like to stay for 3 months or more as will be looking for something permanent. Maybe you could do the same.I'm talking about Aus but rent coming in on a regular basis is attractive in anyone's language. Good luck to you both. Just keep your wits about you!

    OMG just beautiful and the music very moving and powerful. How I wish I was 20 years younger! Thank you so much for posting. There are not enough adjectives to describe it. I would so love to be able to post this to my daughters. Any advice as to how it can be done please.

    i would love to be near the sea I think as I love the wind in my face when walking along a beach and smell of the sea air. Obviously needs change but I just wondered if some of you had lived in different parts of Tas and which was your favourite spot. We lived very close to the north sea once in the uk and it was miserable but the beach was lovely. at certain times of the year. Lovely friendly people and very kind. Suffolk. Makes a difference to your memories. Best smoked haddock I have ever tasted and kippers
