Press on. Obstacles are seldom the same size tomorrow as they are today.

I hope this is true for me. I find the thought of preparing my house to sell overwhelming. I have been in my house for 33 years and been a bit of a collector and hoarder.There are so many things that need to be done and I seem to be so slow. In order to keep my head above water I need to be able to sell my house by September.
P:-) continues to work on my back room. We have spent the last few days moving 3.6 meter (12 feet) pieces of plasterboard from my garage upstairs at the front of the house to the back room downstairs at the rear of the house.
This has been no mean feat as I have stairs that turn at a 90 degree angle as well as other twists and turns. We have had 17 sheets to move and we have been moving a few sheets everyday. It is too exhausting to do them all at once.
At first I thought I wouldn't be able to do it and would have to hire some young men, so I am quite pleased with myself.
On Wednesday we took a trip to the small seaside town of Stanwell Park, about 40 minutes north of home. P:-) has found a GP there that he really likes.
It was a very pleasant drive.

I have a lyrebird that comes to my house every morning.

Monty Halls Island Escape
My favourite TV program at the moment is Monty Halls Island Escape on SBS on Friday nights at 6.30 pm.
He is raising turkeys and pigs for Christmas dinner. He has become quite attached to the 2 pigs and it will be interesting to see if in the end he can actually eat them.
This is well worth viewing on TV on Friday nights, or you can watch the series at the link above.
