Been away for nearly 3 weeks. Headed north to see family and to have some warm sunny weather. Rained for days and was pretty cool in evenings, but had a few nice sunny days. The trip in caravan had us experiencing some very cold nights. Zero degrees on several occasions. Woke very early a couple of times and turned on the heater (at about 4am). Have realised that we should have left the heater on 'low' all night. That's a tip for next time!
While walking through a country town saw a sign that was offering special deals on books for "children" (sic). What did they really mean? Who were these books for?
During our time away, there was a "house inspection" supposedly by people who thought they might like to buy our house. Seems that our carport was not high enough to fit their troop carrier (!) and its very high roof rack! Doh! What sort of an idiot drives a troop carrier and expects any house to have a carport large enough to accommodate such? By the way, there's a whole bloody acre of land to build a troop carrier cover if they can't manage to raise the roof enough on the existing car port! Time wasters!
