Really, really, really windy today. Again we are just having an easy day around the van. I cooked up a mean breakfast of Cowboy Beans and scrambled eggs. Col headed off to Bunnings to try and buy some shade cloth as the shade cloth around the shelter is pretty old and not coping in the wind. I have been working on blogs yesterday and today.

We just took it easy this weekend.
It has been really windy (and I am not talking about Col, although he has been pretty windy too)! And the rain has started too – we have had at least 4 rainy days recently which is the first rain we have seen since being down south of WA! It has been a while. It has been raining during the night while we have been sleeping, but loud enough to wake us up. Continue reading “Day 258 – 29th September 2018 – Darwin”
Nothing too out of the ordinary for us in the NT, but Col did take this beautiful photo of the purple night sky. It is not edited either, just a beautiful colour. Nice to sit and have a glass of wine at the end of the day with this as the backdrop.
Shout out to Jem my daughter for graduating today, Bachelor Degree in Health Science. Huge achievement and I am so proud of you. Can’t wait to see what the future holds. Continue reading “Day 256 – 27th September 2018 – Darwin”
This evening we went out with Kat and Angry for dinner to a little Italian restaurant hidden down an alley way in the city on Mitchell Street. They make authentic Italian wood fired pizza which was very yummy. We then headed to The Tap on Mitchell for a drink. This is a great alfesco pub/restaurant with live music playing (Dave we will take you there next time you come up!). Continue reading “Day 255 – 26th September 2018 – Darwin”
Work again today and I am pretty much back to normal now. Viruses are so annoying. We have been pretty lucky actually on this trip, I think living outdoors probably helps that a bit, and also the warmer weather. Continue reading “Day 254 – 25th September 2018 – Darwin”
Back to work today. Not sure I am ready for it honestly, but feel like I have had all the time off I am comfortable with. I hate feeling like you are putting more pressure on your Team Mates when you are sick. I know it is part of life, but when you know that staffing is short as it is, you don’t want to contribute to it. So back to work I go, Hi Ho Hi Ho. Continue reading “Day 253 – 24th September 2018 – Darwin”
Still sick today, so nothing too exciting. We did manage to go to Maccas for brekkie and then I stayed in the car while Col satisfied his shopping addiction and went to Bunnings, Jaycar and Supercheap Auto. We also spent the day doing some goal planning which was really beneficial. Continue reading “Day 251 – 22nd September 2018 – Darwin”
The virus has officially won. I woke up feeling worse so decided not to go to work and went to see the Dr instead. She gave me 3 days off work, so I will stay home the rest of this week and try again on Monday. Continue reading “Day 249 – 20th September 2018 – Darwin”
Today was my day off. I did the typical things like washing and tidying up, but really tried to rest too. I posted Haim and Connor a little present and went to the shop to get some dinner and groceries. I also organised for the air-con man to come over and give us a quote (just a little bit excited about this!). Will see how I am feeling tomorrow, whether or not I make it to work in the morning.
