I've always said we have the right PM for the time.

Remember Mal and his "Life wasn't meant to be easy". Okay so we all know he's been misquoted over the years but he'll never live this down.

Remember Paul and his "The recession we had to have."

And now we have good old Tones who has ruined my post by doing another back-flip but I'll post it anyway. Dear Lord I can see my Father, if he was with us, just throwing the whole tv through the window.
"We are going to keep the promise we made, not the promise that some people thought we made or the promise that some people might have liked us to make. We are going to keep the promise that we actually made".

So do we have the right PM for the time?  Oh gawd no, we're all doomed.

A mother visit today and more insanity.  She was in bed, breathless which is a worry and I noticed a large red blotch on her face. After an hour I noticed that there were two red lines running from it down to her jaw. Asked her if her face was hurting, yes it was. Then tells me the story of the resident in the opposite bed who flapped her fan last night and walloped a moth straight into mum's face. At first she thought it had gone into her eye and she did say it was painful then. She was more worried that the moth had dropped into the bed. I can only think that the moth had pollen on it and the old girl is extremely allergic to pollen. Doc Marvin visits tomorrow morning but I made sure the office came and checked and noted it. They had a small ice pack to stop the swelling which helped.
But stupid me, who had the camera in my bag didn't take a photo. I should know by now to get proof. It'll make Doc Marvin's day, only my mother could get taken out by a low flying moth.

And don't forget core promises...

Taken down by a vicious attack moth... mind boggling. Your family does go through some trying times.

Refresh my memory, what promise was that?
So sorry to hear about your mum, if only she had mentioned it straight away and got at least an ice pack at the time. I hope she doesn't suffer too much before Doc Marvin sees her.

EC, my family is just nuts. They caught the moth this morning, still hiding in the curtains.

River, remember that Clayton's ad, it's the drink you're having if you're not having a drink, well it's the same with his promises.
Her face was still red this morning but not hurting as much, everything else was hurting worse.

that place has an obligation to protect her from the other residents. and insect screens on windows and doors might be useful too. The reason why your mother didn't call immediately for assistance is that she is totally bombed on the opioids, floating on a cumulo nimbus of "what me worry?". bless her socks. and yours.

Annie O, screen everywhere but the front door gets opened by visitors and everything blows in if it's windy.
I've just found out that she doesn't have new painkillers by bigbomb anti-inflamatories which are working but she can't have more than a certain number or she has no stomach left but the pain's gone. Now her radio is on the fritz and when I was there, someone had turned my photo to the wall. And I have to cough up $15 for a crappy Christmas dinner. 3 bottles of Black Ice now instead of 2.

That's 'but'.
