Survival post car destash

Well it seems like it's been ages since I saw the back end of Gertie and I seem to have coped so far.  I'm probably walking to the train a little more - not a bad thing - and BikeBoy's Great White Commodore has been driven more than it would have been.  Not sure on the GWC.  The seat is not easy to adjust.  The seat belt tries to strangle me and it has no downward adjustment like Gertie's did.  The steering wheel is fatter and I think my hands would hurt if I drove it for a long trip.  It's also that much bigger and I have to try and come to grips with that - bull bar on the front not so bad but it's wider and soooo much longer.  Parking can be a bit scary!
Anyway all that aside, we are 'motoring on' with projects and I am pleased to report that the house painting is complete.  The painter is coming back tomorrow however because the cream trim around the windows and doors has gone to WHITE!  I thought it was undercoat when I got home on Friday but no, that was the finished colour.  Don't think he was happy that we want it fixed but he is fixing it.  Overall, I can recommend this guy.  The work is good and the workers are prompt to the point of extreme - they were here working on the Monday public holiday last week at 7am, OMG!
Picked up all the Royal Show projects today and spent a lovely afternoon with mum wandering around the Claremont Quarter, lunch at Atomic (love their Pumpkin Salad!) and afternoon tea at Koko Black.  The Royal Show commentary was as expected.  I need to back off the spin on the handspun - too twisty and too hard.  Apart from that, all as expected plus I get to wear the prize-winning hat, woo hoo!
