What a pleasure.
I had my first haircut since March.
Just before the shutdown.
I feel like a new person.
Albeit, a slightly sticky one.
Why do they put that gunge on your hair?
My hair was OK when I brushed it but one puff of wind….a wild woman from Borneo.
Who WAS the wild woman from Borneo?
I must google it.
Two of my friends had birthdays on the 17th.
One of them came around for supper and I gave her a big bag of Praline chocolates.
I bought two large slabs of dark Lindt chocolate for the other one.
I have not seen her yet.
The first slab is proving to be delicious.
I do hope I see her soon!
Covid is coming too close for comfort.
We have had our first case in our complex.
Fortunately, the complex is huge and she lives a couple of streets away.
I have also heard of four more cases of people I know.
Hopefully, they are all on the road to recovery.
Our stats are strange.
We had 5000 new cases yesterday.
But, we have a 55% recovery rate.
And, unless we are being kept in the dark, only a 2% death rate.
Mex has naps sitting upright in his chair.
They last about ten to fifteen minutes.
I call them a waste of time.
If you are going to have a nap do it properly.
I go off for two hours.
And then wonder why I wake up n the middle of the night.
Wide eyed and bushy tailed.
Ok, the bushy tailed is a bit of poetic licence.

5000 new cases.?. I hope that’s a typo. Glad your enjoying the chocolate. Your friend will never know you planned to give her two bars.
No Typo. 5621 yesterday!!!!
Proof positive that I cannot add or subtract early in the morning. Yesterday was 4621
You are enjoying, not your.
Ah granny, our stats are indeed scary. Thing is, I have a feeling we are seeing delayed stats… and not all is truthful.
I have a fireman who lives in my complex. He was tested at firehouse headquarters on the 22 May – he only got his results yesterday. :O A whole month later! They were negative, but like he says, by now he could be positive. It’s all just too crazy!
Pick n Pay in the mall opposite me had to be hurriedly closed on Saturday – I don’t know how they found out, but a lady was in there shopping who had tested positive – apparently she said ‘she needed to get out’ – rolling my eyes here! I’m glad I haven’t been in there since lock down started.
I still haven’t had my hair done! At the moment, you can’t even get through to book an appointment! So I guess I’ll wait a week and see if things die down a bit 😉
I’m with you on napping 😉
A friend introduced me to this hairdresser.
She works from home.
She takes one client at a time and allows enough time between clients to clean thoroughly.
Even better, she is R200 cheaper than the one I used to go to in the mall.
My friend’s sister is a hairdresser in Gonubie.
What suburb are you in?
Like you, I am very skeptical about our results.
Perhaps you should send me her name 😉 I still think I’ll wait to have my hair done though 😛
Your new hairdresser sounds great – particularly the savings part 😉
Hope you have a great day! ❤
[…] you have a sweet tooth, or are you more of a savoury lover? (inspired by Granny1947’s love for Lindt dark chocolate 😉 Her blogs are amusing and informative – you should visit her too 😉 […]
Just checking in to see if everything is okay with you?
Hi Meg. I am fine, Have just been very busy,
Hi granny1947 I hope that you are well.
I hope you’ve had chance to catch up with your friend. I tend to buy people chocolate that I myself don’t like, or can’t eat (I’m allergic to nuts). That helps me with my self control!!
The numbers are pretty scary. Stay safe!
Hi There. So good to hear from you. I have a wedding present to buy and Stepdad turns 97 next week, I will try to buy the pressies at the last moment so I am not tempted!
Lindt doesn’t do it for me Granny, I prefer plain old Cadbury dairy milk. I’ve tried to do posh chocolate after people I know have raved about it. But I find it just wrong in my mouth. Perhaps it requires a refined palate that I lack. Damn that Covid is a sticky tenacious little critter. It is on the rise in Aus as well – I have so far avoided it but how much longer can that continue one wonders
