  1. Big changes since we left Paul. I used to go to Perth a couple of times a year for my job when I worked in Sydney but only got as far as Perth CBD.
  2. My head was spinning with all the astrological signs and meanings.
  3. I've just finished reading Troubled Blood by Robert Galbraith (latest in the Strike series) ............... nearly 1,000 pages long. The imagination of the writer is fantastic.
  4. Is Burns Beach now a suburb of Perth? It was in the boonies when we lived there. Ocean Reef was the last suburb to pass through on the way to Yanchep.

    Stop the boats!

    Ridiculous. Who the heck let him attend the school in the first place? Presumably he didn't just walk in and sit down in the classroom unannounced.

    How is Trump doing so far?

    The National Shooting Sports Foundation estimates that 40% of recent gun buyers are doing so for the first time partly driven by citizens’ perceived need to protect themselves in a period of uncertainty and civil unrest as well as calls to defund the police.
  7. The cardiologist I see twice a year doesn't cost me a cent.

    How is Trump doing so far?

    Shelley is a middle aged Downs Syndrome woman who lives near us. She lives in a small house owned by her sister and she is quite independent. She lives on her own and works 4 days a week. She keeps her small garden beautifully and is very houseproud. Of course most DS people lead productive lives.

    Good old USA. There were over 12 million guns bought in the first seven months of 2020 — up more than 70 percent over the same time span in 2019. This number is likely to include nearly 5 million first-time gun owners so far this year. That is probably the biggest surge in gun ownership in American history. Apparently the number would likely be higher if gun shops hadn’t been trying to keep up with demand for months.
  10. You will really miss M&S food hall and Waitrose when you arrive here. My sister is walking distance (in Edinburgh) from both of those fine places. Coles and Woolies here just doesn't cut it though thankfully we have a couple of very good independent grocers ............ also walking distance from home.

    I haven't yet Parley. He sounds right up my street. I'll put him on my list of must reads. I also like Val McDermid @Marisawright and Stuart McBride too. Like his sense of humour mixed in with all the gory murders etc.

    Of all the chic lit authors my favourites are Patricia Scanlan, Cathy Kelly, Sinead Moriarty and Emma Hannigan. They all happen to be Irish and they write some very good stories.
