Well done to you Chris K - amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it - we purchased a fan to put up near our bed in the motorhome - picked it up in WA from friends place in September, carried it with ever since. Earlier this week the "handyman" mounted it on the wall - yesterday he tried to get power to it - blew a fuse, off to the shops coz we couldn't find our spares.

On way back - says - think I will ask Chris (my son) to give me a hand - we had power within five minutes - fantastic, just in time for a very warm night and couple of days.

Oh, and welcome to the forum - haven't seen you on here before - enjoy, join in, do the Who is This in I Digress, or the Pick this Place in the General forum - great seeing places you've been or haven't been, and testing your memory with the people one.

Hi Rocket - I know there was a stink about Kershaw Gardens from the caravan parks locally -but not sure if it is indeed shut as yet. Ring the council.

Enjoy your house sit - we are in Victoria, since before Chrissy - not sure when we are leaving, might stay till end February. Got to be round Bundy early May, so no hurry.

Post re Kershaw Gardens if you find out.

Rocket - yes the curtains are for the MH - teal blue - I think they look lovely - the others were bland beige. I actually bought ready made from Spotlight on sale, and altered them to fit our windows, still got to do something with the pelmets.

I used to take my granddaughter shopping when she was young - loved it. Got the three eldest grandkids coming for the weekend - Josh (23) has just moved to Melbourne to live, from Brissy Kiera (20) is studying at TAFE, Bri (20) is unemployed, but looking!

Should be a mad weekend - they are crazy guys - love them all dearly.

Rinse, repeat! (until harvest is done!)

Love olives JA - lot of work though - I just buy a jar!

We did a round trip from Avoca to Beaufort to Warrnambool and back again to Ballarat - Smythesdale Gardens free camp - great spot, lots in - showers (get code from ph number on brick building) rubbish bins (yay) nice little town. Donation envelopes (for those who wish) go to the local servo. No time limit. Today we carry on to Maryborough, Bendigo, and see where we end up for the night - I wonder?

Have a good day one and all!!!

Well we headed off to Canberra, to pick up a friend who is going to travel with us for a bit - from there to Yass, by the river, lovely free camp. OneK walk to shops, nice spot.

Friends MH has a power problem, so she headed back to Canberra to get that looked into, will catch up somewhere. Currently in Boonah showgrounds, for a week, MH service, fridge fix (fingers crossed) no gas coming through to it, but stove works ok. Breastscreen appointment = ouch!

Then heading to Boynedale Bush Camp for a meetup, then ...........................................somewhere!

Washing day here north of Mackay QLD.   While farm sitting I have the pleasure of looking after some lovely animals.

Last night I had one jump on me when I was asleep. But it ran off before I could get to the light.

 

Moved into the farm house as the baby of the house is fretting for the owners.( Maltese Poodle).  Glad the weather is lovely and enjoyed watching Jessica Mauboy singing this morning.

 

Thanblankstare ks for the chat.
