If You Love Your Job, You’ll Never Work A Day In Your Life.

Rambling On… 18th September 2020.

 

I had to go grocery shopping this morning which was a feat in itself since other than getting fruit, vegetables, milk, and bread, I haven’t done a decent shop for just over a month. I realized yesterday afternoon that I needed to go out since my freezer was almost empty. So, I did about a month’s worth of stocking up for my freezer and pantry. It took me a couple of hours but other than going to the store for the necessities as mentioned above, I won’t have to go back for much else. Thank goodness.


Regional Victoria’s Covid-19 restrictions are easing. Yay. We’re now allowed to travel, have visitors as long as there are no more than five people inside your home at one time, and we’re allowed to get together in public places with up to ten people. The playgrounds, caravan parks and other amenities such as public swimming pools are now open. However, there are still restrictions in place, but I’m excited.

My man and I were going to go away for a week near the end of July but since strict restrictions were in force and my son needed help with his landscaping, it wasn’t possible.

Hubby and I are planning to take time out in early October after the school holidays are over and I can’t wait. It will be so nice to relax away from home into the great outdoors and commune with nature. We’re still not allowed to cross any of the state’s borders, but that won’t bother us. There are plenty of places in our own state that are wonderful to visit. Of course, we’ll be looking to head north and hopefully into a bit more of a warmer clime. You never know, the border between Victoria and New South Wales may be open by the time we’re planning to head off and we may venture further afield, but we’ll have to wait and see.

There is no way we’re going to cross a border when we’re not allowed since we don’t want to be slapped with hefty fines.


My son is loving his new job. It took him a few days to settle into things, but I love seeing him come home with a smile on his face and hear him talking so passionately about something he enjoys doing.

So far, he’s only working Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and the occasional Saturday. He realised after the first week he was going to have to go out and buy some more work shirts. He only had two shirts with collars which isn’t going to be enough, so yesterday, Thursday, he went to the shops and bought another three shirts. Now he has a shirt for every day of the week, and he doesn’t have to worry about washing everyday to keep up.

Yes, he washes his own clothes and though he loathes ironing, he will attempt to iron his shirts too. I help out if he asks, but if he doesn’t, I leave him to it since practice makes perfect. Lol.

I hope you are all safe with those terrible fires burning along the west coast of America.

Wishing you all well.

Stay safe, happy, sane, and healthy.

Love Becca Van xxoo

 

 

What Have I Been Writing?

 

I’m still writing Beautifully Imperfect 6: Finding Her Way. Though my heroine Kyla Hall isn’t named in Beautifully Imperfect 5, she is referenced. Her ex-boyfriend is the crazy guy who stabs Mercedes Nichols. I decided it was time to write her story and the aftermath she’s dealing with.

I’m really liking writing Kyla’s story and if Siren BookStrand agrees to publish this book, I hope you all like reading about her trials and tribulations and the men in her life.
