    I wonder how long until they make us pay for yearly or 9 monthly vaccinations? Will it cost $20 like the flu vaccine? It's probably not too much money, but the cost of living is too much already.

    Merry christmas, Moon! To golden, bananie and Tangney as well if you are still reading this. We don't really have family here in australia so it has always been quiet for us on xmas day. We always took trip after xmas in the past but haven't done so last and this year. Can't be bother. For the first time, my former colleague, who didnt' get to go back to Vicrtoria two yrs in a roll, invited us over on boxing day lunch. Once i heard about cases in perth two days before xmas, i had a quick glance on the exposure sites, nothing to worry. Then, I decided not to read any more news until today. Luckily, it was a good decision for us not to go shopping a week before xmas. It was just to avoid the scenario of wrong place and wrong time and then have to cancel the only social interaction we have over the last 2 weeks. It would suck if there is a blanket lockdown even though none of the ppl (only 6 of us!) at the lunch have been to any of the exposure sites. And none of us are the party and shopping type anyway! We are all jabbed so not really worry about.....although my partner is very much like the bubble life as no restrictions so naturally create tension between us......in any case, once the kid goes back to school, we would likely get it. So just a matter of time anyway..... Take care! xx
