  1. I can't believe I got a full refund from Qatar. It did take 4 and a half months.....lots of emails....but finally got it 2 weeks ago. Was a business class flight, so not small cash. Also cancelled somexdomestuc Qantas flight andcrhat will be refunded in full in 6-8 weeks. I had booked these myself. Qatar T&C changed so many times......

    Yep......tough decisions.
  3. I am wetting myself laughing. The picture you describe is priceless. 🤣🤣🤣
  4. Well....an update. Zuri is no longer a guest. She is mine. Long story short. Owners brought a puppy pug. She did a week at home when she arrived. Then we grabbed her for a holiday....As she was a little stressed with a very energetic puppy. The two won't to be able to live together. Today I grabbed a $10 snuggle ved from Kmart.....what do you think? I am in love with this little girl.
  5. 12 years sponsoring.....her secondary education is completed. Now onto her Community Service year (teaching in a Gov school with 90 students per class, with only a one week crash course), then onto university. I was meant to travel to Tanzania to meet her and her family and attend graduation....then COVID hit.
  6. Cat sitting again. She cracks me up. Looking more like Thumper
  7. I wonder has my evidence has changed your view slighty? You stated "never heard of it". I did a 10 second Google search and found an example. Tyno provided example of a Go Fund me page specifically to those in WA, which is made up mostly of single indigenous mothers in jail in WA, who have unpaid fines. This is another piece of evidence that it has happened.....in fact approximately 200 times (if you read the information on this page).

  9. My part time kitty (Zuri) is back. Good timing. With the kitchen ceiling unexpectedly falling down, renos nearing completion I needed some stress release (paints not matching and the contractors said it is as good as it is going to get....😒) And on 4 weeks leave.....cleaning up plaster dust.....sigh. You can't help but feel good when you nanny nap and she cuddles up next to you.
  10. LOL.....a slow leak from upstairs plumbing. Must have been going for some time as the plaster board was quite wet over a wide area, but there had been no evidence of it occurring (I would notice weird marks on the ceiling). We heard a weird dripping sound, and when i turned the light on it was right above the sink (lucky so we could hear it so clearly. Within 10 min it was coming down. My neighbours happen to be a carpenter, plumber and electrician. Lucky they are our approved body corp "go to" people (hence the quick repair action). Anyway, things happen for a reason....new lights can now be installed and I have four weeks leave starting from next week (time to clean....)
  11. Last Monday this happened (photo 1) and yesterday we got to this (photo 2). The funny side is that I did a partial renovation last year but didn't get to do lighting. Guess what.....now I do. 😁
  12. OMG.....so amazing. I have shared full videos on my FB page and now with ABC Far North. Jacob has only just moved into our complex and offered this very kind gesture. Another new resident, I learned today a Vietnman Vet, came out suit and medals. ❤❤❤❤ Of 56 units, I think 3/4 came out. We only promoted over the last few days. Amazing experience. I have been to Gallipoli (x2, non dawn service) and this ranks up with that
  13. Our complex has 56 units. Hope there are around 15 represented. I am marking social distance spots at 5.30..... The second photo made ABC news breakfast this morning.
