I am grateful for our ambulance and health care services, my wife who has issues with walking at times took a fairly nasty tumble yesterday, needed the help of SA Ambulance who were fantastic with their response time and care, as were the hospital staff. Thankfully no lasting damage done but the leg is in a splint and crutches are mandatory for a week at least.

Today I am thankful for technology. It meant that even though we couldn’t physically spend Easter with any of our extended family, we were still able to connect via text, phone calls and FaceTime. It didn’t matter that our families are spread as far North as Horn Island, West to Moura and South to Everton Park, we could still share snippets of each other’s day and for that we were extremely grateful.

Im grateful to the Taspol officer who detected me doing 60 in a 40 roadworks zone on the way back from the local IGA supermarket and said to me there are a lot more important things to worry about now other than hitting people with speeding fines...  Asked me the full set, where you been, where you going, etc.

Lucky the shopping was visible in the back seat.  Only went 4km there and back (went to buy female and baby products for those is the know...) , but our finest are pretty switched on.

 :cheers:

Without sounding like a D!ck as it isn’t meant to be, but I’m grateful we got our 4-week holiday in last Xmas. 75% of our holidays are camping, but around 4 years ago we decided we wanted to splurge on a trip to Europe with the kids because soon they will be at the age where going away with your parents isn’t cool.

I’m the type of person who refuses to get a loan for holidays, so over the course of the past 4 years we lived a simple lifestyle and put away as much money as we could. We also researched where we wanted to go, but also what attractions we could do ourselves without needing to go on expensive guided tours.  (It’s amazing how many attractions/places you can see yourself just buy doing a bit of research – IE: one tour in Germany would have cost $550, doing it ourselves cost $75)

I have to say getting public buses and trains in different countries can be daunting, but you also get to experience so much more because you see the real city and just not the pretty streets the tour companies use. Plus you get to speak with locals who are normally willing to help with advice.

So mid-December we left for our trip to Paris, Munich, Austria, Finland and then the highlight was a White Xmas at the home of Santa Clause in Rovaniemi which is located in the Arctic Circle.

For us, if we put it until say this year then most likely the trip would never happen because this year all overseas travel is cancelled, then next year could well be either priced out of our reach or I might be unemployed. So it would have been a shame if the years of making sacrifices was for no reason, but more importantly the memories we made on the holiday were priceless and something the kids will never forget.

I'm grateful for my beautiful wife. She pushes me in a good way and I'm very lucky to have her.
Also grateful for our (relatively) good health. Sometimes crap happens but in general we are healthy happy people.

I just wish everyone would stop trying to rush and pressure for the "easing of restrictions" - the chance of reinfection to me is very concerning...

Yep - the medical people are all saying September, so let's work on September, & if it gets brought forward, then that's a bonus!

We aren't grandparents yet, have many friends who are, and they all mention the joy they receive listening to the kids laugh.

no bands are essential services..

If Pink Floyd or Led Zep were still going I may well beg to differ. Fortunately we dont need to have that discussion.

In the good old U.S. of A they reckon WWE is an essential business??
Wonder how much they pay to get that label.
