You will be pleased to know my iceberg is back in pristine conditon, the kiwis woke up and staggered off, and the amps sold well on eBay - so all good here.
I'm really delighted about your eyes, if I understand correctly they have recovered well. It a frightening thing to think of losing even partial sight. One of my nightmares too, though there is no reason for it, mine are fine (touch wood or a sleeping kakapo whichever is nearest). Just anxiety misbehaving.
I'm a little hazy about your lodger/housemate? Have you managed to get one yet -sorry if I'm on the wrong track, the language barrier makes it difficult:)
St Vinnie's is good, as can be Anglicare, and most utilities will take a reasonable attitude if you can talk with them (you have probably done so already). I have the feeling the Anglicare financial advisor service may be able to help with big outstanding electricity bills, but am not sure, may be leading you up the garden path.
You are in good hands with Grandy (wave to Grandy) who is giving you good advice as usual.
I've no idea what an "Amped aqua vroom " is but it sounds impressive. NZ for jet ski?
