So we have another work offer that has thrown a bit of a spanner in the works. Col has been contacted by an Agency to apply for a Business Analyst Role in Darwin for 6 months. We are both conscious of the money situation as my Long Service Leave runs out at the end of June and the plan was to pick up some work in Broome, but there are no guarantees we will get work. We both feel that living and working in Darwin for a few months would be more in line with the holiday goals as it would be a totally new experience, but again we will be totally turning the holiday on it’s head if we do. Decisions!!
We decided that Col should go ahead with the application and see what happens. I am not sure how I feel about it, but am open to it. I would feel sad to miss the Kimberleys, Broome and Kulumburu! Although we couldn’t really go there without Dave, Col’s Dad, as that just wouldn’t feel right!! We had planned a trip to Kulumburu back in 2015 as it was a bucket list thing for Col to go there with his Dad but we never made it there due to road conditions and timing. It is still on the bucket list but wouldn’t feel right without Dave.
Col had noticed that someone had put bait in the freezer in the camp kitchen, but unfortunately the freezer is not working properly and it had leaked everywhere and stank! So part of my morning today when cleaning the camp kitchen was dealing with the smelly freezer.
It is another hot day here at Giralia and I noticed while cleaning the camp kitchen this morning that it was cooler in here that in the annex or the van, so we decided to relocate. We set up a camp table and chairs and the fan and Col has been working on his job application for the BA role in Darwin. We will see what happens. I have been working on updating the blog and getting it ready to upload. Bunjil the dog came to keep us company too (Bunjil is actually a Creator Deity in Aboriginal Mythology and often depicted as a Wedge Tail Eagle, but at Giralia he is a dog). The other little dog is called HunkaMunka (not sure of the spelling and he is not in the picture below)
I love the cutlery on the wall of the Camp Kitchen, they are about 1 metre long each. I asked Jen who made them and she said she found them in Bunnings once! I really do like them, not exactly sure where I would put them
We have found a spot about 20km from here on the way into Exmouth that has some good mobile coverage. So we plan to head there later this evening so we can face-time the Grandkids and call the kids. I will hopefully get a chance to upload the blog too and download some netflix episodes to watch later.
Denver came over to get us to come and see the moon rising as it was a full moon and looked huge and red close to the horizon. It was really beautiful. We tried to get a photo of it on the phone, but it just looked tiny and did not do it justice. It was a magical moment standing and having a drink while watching the moon rise.
