With Cobar temperatures stuck in a rut, we’re looking forward to Nigel’s next exam – if only to escape the incessant heat. On the 13th of January, he’ll return to his Goulburn cell (well, size-wise anyway) for the final HWP exams while Bowie and I return to all things sand and surf and await his arrival on the 18th of January (We love the good sergeant!).
Now that we’ve bought Mr Bishi, complete with tow bar for our shiny new camper trailer, we’re currently trying to sell the black Nissan and ‘move on’ and, of course, ebay really isn’t an option when you live hundreds of kilometres away from the rest of civilisation. Enter Cobar Buy Sell Swap.
Last week I came across a couple of posts on this sites, which I thought deserved a mention.
Driving around town, it seems that the grey nomads have moved on to cooler climates and the caravans have been replaced with Christmas decorations. Cobar is nothing if not welcoming and the number of festivals and events that are celebrated would put some larger towns to shame.
Maybe the heading is a misnomer because not a lot has changed since the last blog….. despite my best efforts to stop them, the weeds are growing faster than I can spray them or pull them out,
Nigel is still studying for the November exam
and the car is still in Dubbo waiting to be repaired. It seems they jumped the gun when they said it would get the new transmission on the 3rd of October because it was still in Japan at the time. New ETA is the 28th of October. Ho hum.
I know I know…….. am I taking poetic licence too far? Still, if you’re wondering why it’s been “all quiet on the western front” (yes, I did it again), it’s because we’ve been otherwise engaged. Here’s the short-ish version.
As some of you know, I tried very hard to convince Nigel to get another dog for Beau to play with. Now I see that perhaps he was right.
