We got up here yesterday morning having had a fairly good trip up with only a minor problem with the trailer ( lost a bolt from the spring causing one tyre to turn out), luckily Pete and the NRMA fella were able to get a bolt and pull it back into place for the rest of the trip! And then spent Sunday arvo and night with our friends in Curra before taking off yesterday morning to get here in time to meet the tradies who we had lined up ....... first off the rank were the guys fitting the split system air con that we had purchased here at the Boxing Day sales.
Not far behind them were the guys from Sunjuice who were here to install solar panels to the roof and convert the electric hot water to solar ....... after a few issues they got things sorted out .......in our favour it seems as we are getting more panels with higher pulling power at the same cost! Gotta be happy with that, so instead of the initial 16 we are now getting 22 panels and a lovely big 5kv system! They will be back today to get the rest of them up and installed! Last night not having had the chance to head to the shops with all the tradies here, Pete rang the RSL courtesy bus to take us to the club for dinner! Oh what a treat that was .......having not lived in a town for quite a few years it was a real treat to not have to drive miles to go out for dinner....... and a free courtesy bus to boot right to the front door!!!!
Later this morning we have the furniture removalist turning up with the first load of stuff ..............
oh, and I forgot to mention - we had some mandarins on the tree ( we ate them straight away), a few oassionfruit on the vine and even some cherry tomatoes waiting for us! Looks like the grapefruit are almost rip as well.
