DIBNLIB – What thoughtful friend; she can think of others despite her troubles. I hope your f-i-l recovers quickly. As for your departing friend, do keep in touch with letters or email. My school friend & I wrote each C-mas for nearly 40 years (she in country, I in city). Now she lives in another suburb & is widowed we are meeting regularly for lunch (or we were before covid).
Chilly again. Max was 9.9 C at 6 am, yes am. Very quiet, no traffic, another 2 positive cases in SA. Record numbers in NSW (people there can’t/won’t stay home).
Just a thought

Morning all: Waved bye-bye to twosome at 4:15 a.m. then headed back to bed. They are almost halfway home at this point. We really had a lot of fun and laughs on this trip.
EE:. I gather from comments that OG's move to new hospital given its reputation and less strict visitor policy. Hope she's closer to going back home.
Diane: Welcome home - how was Indianapolis (dog sitting) and what's the latest on elderly relative?
dibnlib: Sorry your friend has moved away (this isn't your friend who had the accident right?); maybe focus on when you might be able to go and visit once they're settled? Meanwhile, wonderfully thoughtful of accident friend to buy you that plant (and how sweet of her daughter to make it possible!). Hope your OH is okay with the location. That's a long drive for your OH and on a Sunday? Won't the roads be jammed? EDIT: Not the case, I see from your later post. Assume that train options are less than desirable? I wonder will he stay down there as it doesn't sound good for F-i-L.
AQ: Told granddaughter about your trio back in school then home again so quickly; she's wondering how things are going to go when Ms D's school starts back up.... Oh I love those writer quotes! Interesting that one OZ state manages to keep Covid figures low while another's residents run amok. Enjoy those chilly temps.
Heather: I forget size of family due to visit? Suggest you rest before (and after). EDIT: I see you're already into the G&T! :-) A little preventive medicine perchance (in addition to combating the hot temps of course?)
I've got one load of laundry in and may just shovel the stuff that doesn't need to be done into the guest room and close the door on it for a day or two...
