Flying into Sydney, Australia
It’s been a very busy month. Disaster struck when I lost the link to a large number of my photos in Lightroom. Suffice to say I now have most relinked and only 126 still missing 😦 I then decided to really prune the number of images I keep and that has taken up a lot of time. I have deleted heaps but still have a long way to go.
Then I sold my large framed quilting machine that I’ve had for a number of years and hardly used. With only 2 weeks before I lost it forever I decided to try and get some quilt tops quilted and finished. That incentive had me at the machine most days and I’m pleased to say I finished 4 very large quilts that otherwise would have languished on the shelf for more years or be given away for someone else to quilt and finish.
The 3 cupboards I emptied last month have gone to a good home along with one bookcase. So a bit more headway there. You’re probably tired of hearing me say ‘I’ve got rid of more stuff’ – but I have – more books gone, more fabric gone and most of the teapot collection gone.
The property is off the market for the next 2 months. I was hoping for a quick sale, which hasn’t happened and I’ve only had one lot of possible buyers in 5 months. So time to reassess. I’ll put it back on the market in July in a different price range (more in line with what it’s worth) and be prepared to sit and wait for the right person. The higher price will also cover me for the added expenses that will crop up during that time.
Looking ahead, the month of May will be very different. I’ll be in Broome, Western Australia at lunch time today – three plane flights and two days and I’m still in Australia!!!! The big adventure starts tomorrow, I’ve have more on that in tomorrows post 🙂
Then at the end of May I pick up my new A’Van camper and take it on a shake-down trip to get familiar with all the new gizmos and gadgets that have been added since I bought my first A’Van 15 years ago. So a busy month ahead but not much of it at home.
I am scheduling a few posts for the next couple of days but from then on I will be out of mobile and internet contact for nearly 2 weeks. So will be unable to reply to any comments but do come back on the First Friday next month and see what has been happening and where I’l
