Linda is back from Melbourne, much to her delight, too cold in Melbourne. We, or I, have had the heater going on occasions here for about two weeks in the middle of July and there so far has been no hint that we will need it on again. We are now very settled in and enjoying the space and comfort tremendously, well not quite so much with Linda with her month’s absence but it won’t be long. I have finally got the front yard sorted out and it only took me one day to complete all I now intend to do.

We have nearly fully furnished the house, without some things we are trying to convince ourselves whether we really need or not. So it is now get used to the different life style and find things to occupy our time that was automatically taken care of when caravanning with there being others always around. I will soon have to re-place the caravan in the driveway to do some maintenance, fix the brakes, before we decide to go touring again. It will need to be in the driveway on the concrete so I can climb underneath with a lot more comfort and safety.

Caravan moved, space in the garage for the car, most everything else is sorted out and stored now with plenty of room in the garage area.

I have purchased a lawn mower and whipper snipper and have settled in for a routine of yard maintenance. Monday and Tuesday are allocated for leaf raking and lawn tidying, so that the scraps can go in the rubbish bin for disposal on Wednesday mornings. The job has been a lot bigger so far than what it will eventually be as the lawn edges are all messy and need trimming and tidying. Most of that is done so from here on in the snipper should keep them well under control. The lawns don’t need mowing very often at this time of year, and I dare say it will be a regular job later in the year.
