It's okay if there's nothing, lol... feel free just to rant
Just an update here: took your advice Anne & purchased one of the 2 packs from Strandbags (the marble & light grey one) last week; wore the marble one yesterday & you're right, they are so damn soft! Granted, I had a teensy bit of irritation (I think that's more from the filter than the mask itself), but overall I'm quite pleased with them thus far. They're softer than both my expensive masks and my cheap one. Have got my eye on one of the other packs now as well, but want to look at it in person.
I’m glad they are better for you! I don’t wear them with filters so can5 help with that issue unfortunately.
Phase 5 restrictions in W.A are not going to be lifted for another 2 months so a event I was going to at the end of the month is going to be cancelled. My dress is at the dressmakers being altered and I waxed my legs! . I know my husband will be very disappointed along with another 250 people.
I understand why this has been done and I appreciate how lucky we are in comparison to other states but I am still annoyed, this was initially meant to be held in April, it's a annual dinner for volunteer firefighters.
What annoys me the most is that the organisers have said it will not go ahead until the venue can be filled to capacity. They could split this into two nights but I don't think they will be generous enough to do it.
I’m annoyed with this whole COVID thing. It’s just horrible isn’t it. We are in Melbourne. My uncle is in a nursing home. There are staff and residents with it, and there’s so far been 1 death. The numbers keep rising daily. I’m just so sad for these poor elderly people. It’s heartbreaking. Hopefully someone will come up with a vaccine soon.
I honestly feel for everyone in Victoria, especially the areas in stage 4 lockdown. I'd be worried about anyone in a nursing home - even in NSW! I hope the Royal Commission brings about a change in the way they're managing COVID.
Definatley not a good situation in aged care especially in Victoria. The aged care sector nationally was under scrutiny even before COVID which has made the problem worse. My mother in law is in aged care in a dementure ward. The staff seem good and the facility itself is nice but there seems to be issues with management. There was an issue there earlier in the year with scabies which my mother in law had and is highly contagious. The facility didn't manage that very well at all so hate to think what may happen if COVID 19 found its way in there. A terrifying thought. It must be be devestating for those in Victoria with loved ones in aged care at the moment not being able to visit them and for the families of those who have sadly passed away.
The new topic forum section in BH is now usually just full of spam. Very frustrating. We need to come up with some new topics ladies...
Well, I'm from NSW, so not in lock-down, but I might as well be. I live in a border town with Vic, my town is very small (not that the Vic town is big, but there are a lot more shops). So here I can go to the supermarket,,,,and that's about it. I'm just wondering when Gladys will open the border to Vic again (can only cross for work, school, medical and essential shopping, maybe Priceline is essential? Lol). I get that the Covid numbers are still high, but regional Vic has a 14 day average of less than 5 cases.
I feel your pain Indie. We can’t go ANYWHERE. Rules are that only one person per household can go to the shops, but sometimes I do go with hubby, and we see lots of people together. Everything is closed except supermarkets, butchers, bakeries, fruit & veggie shops, chemists. Even Kmart is closed! Restaurants are allowed to remain open for take away only, but a lot of them are closed. Our chemist has just changed from a Pharmasave to a Priceline Pharmacy (yippee) and it’s open. The shopping centres are eerie. It’s all just so surreal. I wish it was all over.
Thoughts are with those in Victoria. I live in Qld and the border restrictions here are frustrating enough. Can't imagine what it must be like to be in isolation for so long. Have friends and relatives in Vic so am keeping in touch with them to make sure they are going ok. Hoping there is light at the end of the tunnel.
I'm sure it's taking a toll on you, Rose. After my rant yesterday, as of today, I am able to apply for a permit that allows anyone to cross back over the border if you live in NSW. Unfortunately this means that a 5 minute drive to the main street could take an hour or so to get back over the bridge because it's so congested. Actually, I could just ride my bike over! :)
I'm glad you've got a bit more local access then, Indie! I've seen those long car queues on the news - you trade one inconvenience for another!
Thanks Mis8, I know that the "powers that be" are trying to contain this dreaded virus, but the inconvenience and toll its taking on local business is wearing thin.
There's going to be a huge financial & mental health toll. My late Nan used to tell stories about going through the Great Depression. This is going to be the same, in many ways.
I feel so fortunate to be living in W.A , but watching what is happening in other parts of Australia is hard though, it must be awful to live through this. The toll will be felt everywhere but more-so in some parts of the country I think, but we are all restricted in some form or another. I have never seen so many caravans parked out the front of houses in my suburb, people who would be travelling around Australia and holidaying are stuck home, and probably will be for Xmas which is going to be hard.
I believe humans have a pack mentality - we need each other, we are not meant to be alone unless we choose a life of solitude. Covid has made us more aware of that.
BH website is still super slow. Getting to the stage where I can't really be bothered with it anymore.
Christmas decorations and trees out for sale already I noticed in Big W and Target on the weekend, together with Halloween stuff. Woolies have had Christmas mince pies for sale for a few weeks now. Too early for Christmas things in my opinion.
Go Away! Not Welcome Here!
You and most of us on here Kassalee. I think because they can't post a new forum topic at the moment and wait for their spamming mates to answer, or themselves on another user account to answer, they are going for existing forum topics more and also the articles more than usual. I know some comments and forum topics are being deleted because it can affect your points when the topic is deleted, if you comment on that topic. Hopefully something will be done soon as members are dropping from here and even the new members notice how bad it is. Surely bh staff can just cancel the spammers membership, that way they cant comment anymore, then tackle their forum posts and delete them. No point deleting their comment and letting them have an active account as they just keep going. Enough of us regulars have reported and emailed for staff to know who these annoying people are.
I think I say this every year but hot cross buns in supermarkets on Boxing Day, sorry it's just too early, the Easter Eggs will be out soon and it's not even the end of December...
Pretty sure they sell hot cross buns all year in Coles and Woolies :-|
I think they do now, they never used to.
They have been doing that for a few years now. The thing is people buy them all year round...
Hate to say it but I saw mini Easter eggs out on display at one of my local Coles stores today.
FWIW, I'm with you on this one - hate seeing hot cross buns & Easter eggs out months early. Same sort of thing goes with back to school stuff; let the kids have a damn holiday first!
Yes, the back to school things are out before the kids have even started Christmas holidays.
This product exceeded my expectations massively. The texture of the product is really nice light and no smell whatsoever.
I got this in a Christmas kit in the shade Lean in. I’m not sure if the problem is the shade or the gloss itself but I don’t think it’s a product to use on its own.
I got this product in the shade 872 Glit/Doré. I find that the colour looks nice on first application but as soon as you blend it it fades and you’re just left with a bunch of glitter in your eye.
