Now this is a fountain.
I love this fountain and I want it in my garden. A nice deck chair or something more sturdy for me and I could sit and meditate on the splashing of the water especially with the sun behind, making little rainbows for my wishes. It came from the imagination of Malgorzata Chodakowska.
A lot has happened at the Home which we are now referring to as Mushroom House, keeping us in the dark and feeding us bullshit. With 2 days warning the kitchen was turned over to an American hospitality company, our tea ladies were fired but the favourite chef was kept on because they couldn't find anyone who would work Sunday/Monday for the same amount of money. I was not offered a cup of tea yesterday so from now on I'll take my own cup and tea bag and ask for hot water.
The one thing they have re-installed is for the relatives to have a meal with their husbands or wives, cost of $5. This is great for the men who usually go home and don't bother eating properly.
Now we just wait to see if they tell us the facility has also been sold to an American company. A certain mother's Doc received a letter saying his arrangement with the Council Aged Care Group would not be continued did not go down well. He is my mother's personal doctor and the inference was that she would have to use the doctor that will go with the big new Aged Care Centre which isn't built yet. He was busy yesterday drafting a reply that will probably blister paint. After searching for anything regarding the sale on line, I came across a small article that mentions the land being decontaminated since it was used as the Council Depot for Everything. That company walked away with $1.1 million dollars. They should have decontaminated a few Councillors for that amount.
The hard rubbish collection took no prisoners this year. Usually they have a variety of trucks for small, medium and large but this time a huge behemoth on wheels went down one side of the street and up the other and ate everything even my sofa bed with the steel frame. The nature strips looked as though nothing had ever been on the grass, I've never seen a collection like it, gone in 60 seconds.
Most of the neighbours didn't put out until the weekend which didn't give much time for us to have a look and make a midnight run. It seemed the gutter crawlers were only interested in scrap metal this year. I was very good but I'm still crying for the cupboard across the road and the hat rack around the corner.
And I really wanted two chairs to try and make this bench, just right for meditating near a fountain. There's always next year.
