Dawn and I are enjoying our house sitting at Kyabram. Our nearest neighbour is a couple of kms away and aside from Bear and black puss we are entertained by daily visits of rosella and red rumped parrots. The feeders in the garden keep them coming in good numbers.
They also enjoy frolicking under the hose as we endeavour to keep some greenery around the house.
We are here until this coming weekend and have made use of the time with some general repairs and maintenance to The Burrow and to the Chariot. Auto transmission has been serviced and should be OK again after earlier issues. The portable fridge has had a clean and service and now performs again on gas. We have added tracking for the shade screen to the offside of the caravan so can now get protection on either side as required.
Our friends Glen and Jack came up from Melbourne and we went to Rushworth for their Easter markets and parade.
Sitting here writing these notes and I have looked out the window to see the cat having a great time on the verandah leaping about and harassing a brown snake. I have just despatched it with one of the many strategically placed shovels around the place. It is a bit cooler now and there are not so many snakes in evidence.
No rain since they left so we haven’t needed to operate it.
Just had a text from Jan and she and Greg will be home Friday, so we will be on the road again on Saturday heading for Swan Hill.
