So much wet weather. My daughter and son in law had their plane cancelled from Brisane to Newcastle so they are now driving home ina very expensive rental car. tHEY’VE REACHED pORT mACQUARIE WHERE THEY STAYED LAST NIGHT but the rain here is not staying in Spain on the plain.
We can’t got to Coles at Charmhaven because Terrigal Lake has flooded and the only bridge is right next to there. Anyhow, all good. We have our lift supplier here and when finished this week will make it a lot more comfortable for Ros to get up and down. Her twin knee operation worked for a good while, in fact our last overseas trip in 2019 we walked an average 12 kms per day but now the supporting ligaments and muscles are weakening. For myself, I have had bursistis since the 90’s, possibly as a result of all the lifting and carrying we had to do while running our Toyworld stores (we sold about 400 swing sets and trampolines a year) and although the stairs are not a problem for now they will be, although I don’t consider myself old at all, it’s just lucky that now the heaviest things I have to lift are the weekly grocery shop.
The truth is we worked for many years to get our lakeside home and the views it provides and now we don’t even have to consider moving, if ever.
Racing is a problem with all the wet. It means for now most form is unreliable. A lot of horses are specifically brought in for the wet winter tracks but away from the coast winter tracks are mostly firm most years but frost bitten and brown. Makes it hard doesnt it. Still if we can locate those runners which handle any ground we can still prevail.
