A couple of weeks back we held the first ever Devonport Brixhibition.

It was only a one-day event in a smaller hall than we’d had in Launceston because we didn’t know how it’d go up here.

Well the queue was out the door and up the street!

I think you can call that a success!

People were waiting over an hour just to get in.

So next year we’ll have a much bigger hall and a two day show.

And if we’re really lucky - they’ll choose someone else to put in the paper...

Painting Volunteers

Sorry for the poor photo - it was sneaked by my phone when I wasn't really supposed to be taking photos. I know 'sneaked' isn't technically a valid word in that context, but it works.

On with the tale...

My sister is quite smart. She graduated from uni and everything. But sometimes I wonder...

She was having a dig at me about the state of paint in my bathroom - which to be fair was pretty atrocious and peeling off.

She said I really should do something about it, to which I replied that she was unemployed and welcome to have a crack if she wanted.

The thing that makes me doubt her sense and sanity is that she agreed. I wasn't really expecting that.

She also managed to convince Turkey to join her.

Two volunteers to work on my house while I am at work - fantastic!

So for the better part of a week they have been staying at my place and attacking my bathroom.

They've done a great job too - especially given the price (they were volunteers).

There's a little left for me to do - but it's mostly done now.

One thing that I found very surprising is that even after about 7 years living here, I hadn't realised there was a massive hole in my bathroom wall.

It's obviously where a cupboard used to live - but has been hiding behind a mirror since I bought the place. The things you find...

^ The hole in the wall makes a good speaker holder when painting. Also note, the paintwork wasn't quite that bad - that was after sanding it back.

LAN in the shed

Some of my friends were desperate for a LAN and had a couple of days off, so they asked if they could borrow my shed.

So for the last few days, my shed has been even geekier (and messier) than normal.

It was good fun, even if I only joined them in the evenings (I still had to work).

And because no one really thought things through and brought extra tables, I had to deploy my old table legs with a number of short MDF pieces as a tabletop. Not the steadiest looking table, but it worked fine - and apparently the odd shaped sections were good store plates on…

Also - note the laptop on cups - that was apparently to help with airflow.

My family’s annual winter trip was to Noosa in Queensland this year - so we spent an awesome week relaxing and enjoying ourselves up there.

We caught up with family while we were there, and I stayed in Brisbane for a few days to hang out with Klutz. It was a brilliant break - and well needed too. Back to work now though :(

See, I wasn’t always so old…

But now I’m halfway to 60!

That’s very scary…
