We indulged in some "retail therapy" and did our personal Christmas shopping early.
We bought a new set of Four Chairs for the dining table - match beautifully, high slatted backs in New Zealand pine that match the New Zealand pine round table we've had for nineteen years perfectly. We salvaged two of the low backed round chairs from the original set and we are taking them up to "The Camp" with us. The other two went out to the kerbside collection and were gone in a matter of a few hours to scavengers.
We also bought a Weber q-200 barbecue with its own trolley base/stand from Burning Log Megastore - this remains cartoned-up and we'll unpack it when we get back from "The Camp".
Rhonda is on a seven day break - a rare rostering occurrence in nursing - so we are using the last five days of her break to take some time out and head up to "The Camp".
The grass has been cut, the house cleaned, the garden tidied up and the shopping done. A few loose ends to tie up this morning (Monday) and then we are off - back Friday.
