We only had one new citizen signed up this morning, in a few years hopefully Olivia will get all the limelight.
I've checked things since for drain and it's OK so I'll look into the wiring sometime in the near future.
Meanwhile things remain slow with my posting as I've been very slow to shake off whatever illness struck me down just after Xmas, I'm still fairly weak but at least the coughing is vastly reduced, first the Queen and Prince Phillip, then me, and now GHW Bush and his wife Barbara, what a bugger of a thing, surely related to the flu epidemic of 100 years ago.
Oh and my hair has been a fail too, I tried a fancy cut the other week but naturally made a mess of it so it's back to bare skull showing again.
It seems I have the same health problem as the Queen, and I wouldn't wish it on anybody, although I suspect it may become epidemic.
Without insurance everything is free, with insurance you get the same service but are charged a fee which the insurer only partially covers.
Aussie hospitals also tend to have minimal staff or at least doctors between Xmas and Australia Day 26th January so it's best not to get sick then unless it's serious.
I feel I'm old enough now to reject any fashion that doesn't appeal to me, such as those hideous long shorts men wear that are fairly universal, with my stumpy Gunner Sugden type legs the look is cringeworthy but despite being unable to buy proper shorts I at least have the lovely Olivia to adjust these new abominations length to a less shameful look.
Posting a bit interrupted of late I've been fairly sick since just after Xmas, coughing like a heavy smoker, more reason to never become one of them, maybe it's Pneumonia or Whooping Cough but either way it's possibly showing signs of improving, at least some of my strength returned today.
The good news is we've all made it into another year and I wish everybody a happy one.
Karaoke being a Philippine invention has also become their national sport, a shame tonight my voice was so croaky from chest congestion that laid me in bed for a few days until lunch time, but I enjoy this Karaoke thing.
