98 Days - 14 weeks to go.

How amazing to see my retirement countdown showing only 98 days to go today!  At the moment I'm technically on leave for a week but in reality I'm still working & attending meetings. Only one more week to go,  then holidays and then I can hand back a lot of this work and start slowing down a bit.

A few things have happened since my last post. I had my birthday and was given some beautiful quilting fabrics - (I'll get back to posting some pics soon), we decorated our Christmas tree on the weekend, & the Christmas shopping is done. I've signed up for a quilting BOM next year and been poring over my sewing magazines marking projects I'd like to make. 

We were going to have Christmas with family but now that Omicron is on the rise and cases in our town are on the rise we're going to have Christmas at home again.  We can't get our booster shots until the end of January and we had AstraZeneca so apparently our immunity is pretty low right now. 

DH had alerts that he's been in contact this last week even though we rarely go anywhere, but two weeks ago we had huge sporting event here with thousands of visitors and it was then declared a Covid exposure site.  Fortunately we are now all at home, either on leave or working from home so we'll just stay in until we get the booster dose.

Well thats just a quick little update for now. Hoping to get back to more regular blogging soon.

  1. Oh the countdown! I know how you must be feeling right now. The last few weeks are the best. I had my second Pfizer-Biontech on July 3rd. So, my booster was coming up in January but, yesterday the Ministry of Health made it available to people who had their second shots 3 months ago. It doesn't make much difference to me but, I can now get it done.

  3. Being under the 100 day mark sure must feel like a milestone. My husband will be officially two years come the first of the year and that seems unreal.

    1. Yes, I remember it being over 1500 when I started. Two years will go by pretty quickly too, I think having a plan and a date really helps us focus.

  4. Whoo you are in the downward spiral of the 100. We have many people waiting here for boosters I am so happy I thought to get mine. They are saving vaccine for first and second dosess.

    1. thats good that you've had it Kim. I think we might have a supply issue here again as they are also trying to get all the school aged kids vaccinated before they return next year.
