My time in Leinster is soon to come to an end. We have just purchased a house in Pinjarra so will be moving in a couple of months. First time home buyers so we're pretty darn excited. Can't wait to build myself a dedicated outdoor cooking area  Cheesy

Best wishes to you, an exciting time.


This long weekend is the 50th anniversary of us as newly marrieds moving into a brand new home (then). Ours was the first house in the street of a new subdivision which is now going through a revival with mostly young families with little kids all around us.


Rob.
 

When I die I hope my missus doesn't sell my camp ovens  for what I told her I paid for them. pd

Nice looking joint, tadpole. Not much to do by the look of it.

Looks like you could start cooking on the earthy looking patch down the back.

Congrats.

I think my chooks have laid claim to that dirt patch, though i want to have a serious go at veggies there as well. The big greenhouse on the left of that pic is going to be busy hopefully

First part of the move completed today. Drove to my brother and sister in laws in Woorooloo. Pick up the rental truck tomorrow and drive back out to Leinster.
What was supposed to be an 8 or 9 hour drive turned into 12 hours pretty quickly. Went to fill up in Leinster, and the card machine kept timing out, so thought bugger it, I have enough fuel to get to Sandstone, let's get on the road. Got to Sandstone, fuel bowser is out of order. Curse for a little while, look at the gauge which was still sitting at a quarter of a tank. Figure I might be able to make it to Mount Magnet if I take it steady (160km away) but that would be a monumental effort by the GQ towing a trailer. So I call the wife instead. Decide to back track 30km and meet her on the side of the road with her freshly purchased jerry can full of petrol.
So she eventually meets me after an hour, we throw the fuel in and I'm back on the road. After a few kays I realise that my 3/8 of a tank needs to get me 190km, not the original 160km. So I back off to 90kmh and will the old GQ on to give me a monumental fuel saving effort. She did well. Just. The needle had been sitting below empty for 30km before the fuel station. Turns out my gauge is a bit out on the low end. Which is fine with me. Topped her up and I figure I had about 7 litres left. Plenty!
The rest of the drive was pretty uneventful. Except one of my chooks laid an egg while in the transportation box, which was something I never expected....
