This morning, I can't access the news. Instead, I'll tell you about the latest things happening in my life. The items are full of drama, intrigue, complications and tension.
2) I purchased a renovated Windows 7 PC this month, which used up all the spare money. I'm pleased to say the PC is working well, but I'm left with a slight feeling of guilt.
3) Life isn't always rosy with the freedom to do as you please when you retire—especially if you rely on the State Pension. We've paid money from our wages over our whole working life to support us in our retirement. But the amount received doesn't stretch to extras. When I say OUR life, I mean my husband has done so in England, while my contribution for thirty years is subsidized by Australia. After switching countries, I spent twenty years working, and paying into the fund, in England.
4) My husband thinks he might have bowel cancer. He refuses to go to the doctor right now—says he's got too much on his mind—things to do people to see. The news article he showed me yesterday listed the symptoms, some of which apply to him. I'm not TOO worried at the moment because he is inclined to do this from time to time. All the same he needs a BOT. (Body Operations Test.)
Who knows when my internet connection will be fixed? It's often slow in my area. There are only a few houses along the road which is generally busy with traffic. Today, for Easter, an occasional car replaces the usual roar of motors. News flash: It's back!
Who knows when the car will be fixed? And who knows if my husband will get a clean bill of health? The answer my friend is blowing in the wind.
