I was overseas with my mother from the 2nd of March 2020, to the 18th of March 2020. A lot happened with coronavirus in Australia during this time, and when we returned, we were legally required to enter self-isolation. This is my brief diary to document my experiences. (For other posts see: Prelude. Part one. Part two. Part three. Part four. Part five. Part six. Part seven.)


Bobcat in our kennel yard

Today was bobcat day! We had a list of jobs for the bobcat. We:

  • Levelled the kennel yard
  • Pulled up an unwanted brick border
  • Pulled out wooden posts, star droppers, and metal posts
  • Moved a pile of gravel
  • Removed and moved a compost heap
  • Knocked out a stump
  • Moved some blocks of concrete
  • Levelled a small amount of dirt out the front

I say ‘we’ but what really happened is husband drove the bobcat, and I brought out food, drinks, and ran around doing periphery jobs as necessary.

Afterwards, I made dinner, and dropped a plate on my foot and it immediately egged into a bruise.

I finally got up to date with Married at First Sight. Now I get to wait for Sunday night to keep going with the fun.

I started to learn the rules for ‘Star Realms’, in preparation for playing it tomorrow.

That was it. Not a lot to say – I was using my body not my mind today.
