Still Winter…Still Cold…Must be crazy!!

Yes, we must be crazy!! Who in their right mind would voluntarily stay in this cold country through winter?? Really!!? Yep, that would be us! 😛

We are into Week 7 of our work here in Mintaro….I reckon the days are wetter, windier and colder than we ever experienced in all our days on the road. A local recently told us “wait till the winds come”…Newsflash: they’re here!!!

Anyway, we are progressing slowly with this reno. The sanding down & oiling of every door, screen door, window, sill is taking a long time. We have both learnt at least one thing: NO wood framed doors/windows in any future abode! The kitchen is in along with dishwasher plumbed in by B, the fiddly bits n’ pieces are done throughout, now the big job of laying a slab for foundation of extension & moving some doors….when the rain & wind stops, that is!!

I managed to get B to have a morning off and we drove to the nearby Saddleworth Country Marketplace. The weather was shocking (really??!) but the market went on. I purchased a lovely platter made from wine barrels by a couple from the Barossa – perfectly useless when you live in a caravan, but whatever. We also enjoyed a lovely morning tea put on by the local CWA. Good value hand made goods and friendly local people. What else would you rather do on a cold, wet & windy winters day?

The forecast for the next couple of days is partly cloudy with little to no rain! Yep, heard that before!!! 🙂
