We've been away nearly six years now, and Fiona, the last of the family lodgers who all took turns over that time staying in our rent, rates and apparently, maintenance free house has left home, emigrating to Canada. Consequently, we're going to rent the house from the New Year.
Anne therefore headed home yesterday to start preparing the house to rent, finally winning back the day of our lives we lost at the Date Line - and at our age, one day is a lot.
I'm left, as they say, fixing up the boat somewhere nice. Not much wrong with that other than, as John on Marilyn says, three weeks of eating lunch and dinner over the kitchen sink.
Red Cross parcels can be sent to Time Bandit, Blackwattle Bay, Sydney.
