Weekend reading

4 May 2018

It's unheard of around here but I've been out three mornings in a row this week. On Tuesday I went along to my GP for a flu vaccination and ended up having the Pneumococcal vaccine as well. Apparently it's a one-off jab that will help protect me from a few nasty diseases and along with the flu vaccine, I feel it was a good reason to head off into the traffic. Both these vaccines are free to all us Australian over-65ers and if you're in that age bracket, I hope you've had yours or have plans to have it soon. Apparently now is the ideal time to have the flu vaccine and with bad memories of last year's flu season, I think the visit to the doctors office is a small price to pay for the protection it gives us. 

At home here the painting is all but finished and we're putting the house back together again. I'm decluttering my book case today, Hanno is putting up some new shelves and I plan on having some photos of our work to show you next week.  I hope you've had a good week too. Have a great weekend, rest and relax, and we'll all be ready for another productive week ahead.  🔆🙂🔆
