So much to do, so little time

As many of you know, we are heading to the east of Australia shortly. The plan is to get to Ravensthorpe on Sunday where we will spend a week helping friends. But now more and more stuff is claiming our attention between now and then. Vince has been asked to take photos at an endurance ride on Saturday and they will actually pay for any they use in their online magazine which will be a bonus. We haven’t bothered much about being paid before. It is a hobby but it is nice to think Vince’s photos are worthy of someone ringing and saying ‘please come’. Then the man who thought he might like to buy our scarifier is coming today to have a look at it. Tomorrow the caravan gets taken to town to have a new awning so hopefully there won’t be any complications there. Saturday we’ll go to the ride and back but won’t stay the night and no doubt half of Saturday night will be taken up processing photos and making them ‘just right’. Oh, and how could I forget? The mirror sections have arrived from Ikea so we have a wardrobe door to make and another shelf to put in. Hopefully this time we won’t break any mirror tiles like we did last time. We have one spare but we know where we went wrong which is always a great thing to know. The photo is from a previous endurance ride.

Nice to know about the various activities going on in your life. Mine is sedentary in comparison! My brother is also an avid photographer and it is just a hobby for him. Good that Vince is recognized and is in demand; getting paid is the icing on the cake - siva

You're going to be busy. I'm not surprised they want to pay Vince for his photos. They are certainly worthy. I'm glad the scarifier got sold, per the article I read earlier. I'm sure you'll get the wardrobe put together now, without any more mishaps.

Well, the scarifier sold and has gone to its new owners, the Ikea door has been made and fitted and the caravan is at the repairers' so all is going well at the moment. However we have had to battle with problems every step of the way. The scarifier was very difficult to fit to the tractor as it always is but we had to do that to use the three point linkage to load the scarifier onto a trailer. Even then we had to put the trailer in a ditch. Then the Ikea door was tricky to hang and that took longer than expected then this morning for some obscure reason the car wouldn't start and we were late getting the caravan to the repair place. But it's there now and hopefully we'll pick it up later. And now my vacuum cleaner is only working spasmodically so I've washed the filter in the hope that that will help. But it's okay - I don't like vacuuming anyway!
