Wednesday 10th December 2014, Heathcote Junction.
Been here for three weeks already, how time flies. I have now progressed to being in the age group of being officially ‘OLD’, reaching pensioner age. The past few years of my being on New start, because of a lack of finances, is now over and we are now no longer committed to being in places to meet the requirements of Centrelink, so we can once again feel free to travel wherever we please, after February at least. We have a couple of commitments while here and as soon as they are complete we are out of here. We have taken a house sitting position over Christmas for a friend of Narrelle’s for about 3 weeks, and Linda has to follow up and get treatment for an ailment she is suffering, then we can move on. The only other commitment is being in Brisbane in April.
I am doing my usual things while here in Melbourne such as filling in time doing garden work at Narrelle and Matt’s to cover our board, and I am still undertaking my couple of days a week voluntary work at the Telstra museum although I no longer have to do it.
