Hi Mum! You Home?

Looking back there was so much strange with how this day started.  After a really tremulous year and a half things were slowly getting back to normal. Kinda.

The long and short of that call was a quick trip to pick up a member of the family who had lost just about everything.  Other than the old Ute which was losing itself in disrepair.

But these were strange times in a new world that was moving slowly towards a precipitous not many in the public had even been aware of.

Parents, the world over, hear the thing behind the "Hi Mum".  They down tools. Head towards the voice.  It's an instinct bred into most of humanity.

UPDATE

Well, this has been an interesting year.  Turns out by the New Year there was to be a move for all of us [ mum too] literally around the corner. This actually began to happen in April when the

  • house needed weeks of floor-to-ceiling total cleansing.  
  • yard needed more than just noxious, overgrown weeds removed.
  • fences needed to be rebuilt.
  • garage stocktake to be done as so many tools had 'disappeared.'
Update 2:
Outside: 
  • most of the weeds have been taken away.  The next job is ivy removal.
  • gardens are to be fully revitalized. Plus there are vegetable plants and herbs to go in.
Inside: Well when the maintenance on the foundations, ceiling and why not go the whole hog and do the electricals as well! Then the kitchen and also the wet area will be totally done out.

Update 3: 
There are really terrific positives - with a sliding scale of experiences that parents prepare for.

 Sometimes it takes a couple of times to help a 'child' [yes even though they are 'all adult' now] to move forward.  At this time this is what is happening.

Somehow with this country going in and out of lockdowns it seems that the clusters the United Nations are wanting are what we are experiencing.

That may justify going local in ever-increasing circles.  Experiencing places for a week, or two, more local than was planned to take time with.  Thus the "Off On Adventure" may now have tripped the switch and taken on new dynamics.

Maybe the vehicles will be again stored out the back and very few people will know who is at home.

Shall see you in the next Update In the meantime, there is an interesting way to catch up on the happenings of "number 14' and its occupants.
