I think we did say ‘adventures’ – well it is all a bit on hold now – the trading that is. People are simply not coming in mumbers to either markets or fairs. We depend on lots of little profits and if there are not lots of people we can’t make those ‘little profits’ – so we will take a break for a couple of months until after the festive season and the hottest part of the summer.
The new direction is Alan the milkman… he has taken on a new persona, that of a person who collects the milk from the farms in the Warwick area and takes it to the processing plant. He is liking this well enough to be patient with it, enjoys the countryside as he drives, chats to the farmers and then waits to discharge his load into the processing. All paid for by the hour.
I am grateful because now there is a more regular income, not completely regular, that would be too boring, highs and lows there but not to be casual was going to take over his life the way this ocmpany arranged their shifts.too hard for me.
He has also signed up with another crowd and is currently driving a truck home in which he took a load of dead chickens to Mackay. Not sure if he is bring anything back to Brisbane. Anyway that is supposed to be going to be a big payment. It will pay for the installation of hot air extractors that we have just had installed in our bedrooms. Was just too hot up there!! Solar powered hot air extractors seem like a good thing, especially as they were installed by a very attractive woman. All for woman power.
