Home again, after a non sailing weegen

So after dropping Off The Boy, I stayed over at Sandy Point yesterday after a little trip to Inverloch.

The weather has been too nice now for two days.

After up and leaving the camp site, I checked the speed run in case the wind was up… Not.

So went home.

On the way I noticed the new oil platform jacket at Port Welshpool was waiting to be taken to its location in Bass Strait. Through the trees at left, and a work boat at right.

Eventually, or shortly (?), arrivred home, and unpacked and let the kids know I was back.

Then proceeded to change the house about again.

It’s a carthartic exercise- change the house.

Now that #1 is orf toThe Big Smoke more or less semi-permanently, it was time to adjust the layout.

So I/we moved out His desk that has been sitting in the family room for nigh on seven years, and tried to sort out the stuff in it… He can do that next time he is home. Like his room…

A shambles- that should take a week, I don’t want to say… but… he has had nearly three months to toss out junk, and sort out the keepsakes. Books. Beer boxes, stuff…

So then I moved out his desk [that I should have assembled in the first place, as it has a few missing but hopefully not essential screws missing…] and placed it where his old desk sat in the family room.

This old desk was a converted dressing table (?) that his mum bought back in Adelaide 25 years ago, not an antique, but maybe 30 years old then, and it had a large round mirror that I got rid of [left the lot out front for any one to take off my hands], and hind sight has been kicking my arse since then – it was a nice mirror, the rest of it crap. However, as it was lying around doing nothing in the shed [nobody wanted the table] I converted it to a computer desk. The drawers came out on the left for the pc, and the top all lined up as a flat area. And a rubbish collection point- I do not know how he used the keyboard and mouse with all the crap on it!

Anyway. So the spare room, which three years ago was #2’s bedroom- a shoe box! and previously as my study/tv retreat, has been used for two years for the twins as a computer room. Now it will revert to the spare room for junk like kids books, old pc’s and stuff.

And the girls have a new desk in the family room for their computers
