Day 231- the garage

18 August 2012- squishing the contents of a 3 bedroom house into a 2 bedroom unit- a bit difficult.  The garage is holding the overflow, with juuuust enough room for the car

Day 228- At the Ekka

15 August 2012- The Ekka is kind of like a State Fair- it started like as an agricultural fair (and still has a fair amount of that) and has rides and sideshows and showbags and food stalls.  A picture of G at the place where we had lunch.  Food options have improved considerably over the last decade.

Day 216- the present box

3 August 2012- Yes, we do buy presents early, but we aren't methodical.  If we see something we like, or we think it would be a good present for someone, or its a good deal, we buy it.  Sometimes they linger- there's a present in there for my stepbrother that we bought in 2010.  Two years later he will finally receive it!  Very useful in the face of unexpected gift occasions though!
