No flooding in the shed as of 8:30pm last night.

I'll check it again when I get home from work as it rained a bit through the night.

Just spent two days working on the boat, nav lights needed fixing and general tidy up. Bright and early today, pack and load, test engine, one kick then dead. General look around can’t find anything so off the the boat mechanic. Go home and wait, bout an hour later get a ring, it’s all sorted. Mate had cable tied wires too tight and shorted out the hour meter. Go up to his place so we can collect the boat, he’s out, that’s OK he won’t be long, chew a soft mint, damn there’s a rock in it. No, it’s a filling. Collect boat (only $50) and off to the dentist to make an appointment. Get home and a government letter awaits me, open it, Patrol rego, another $745 to spend. Not going to hold my breath waiting for son to pay it for me. 🙄
Try for fishing tomorrow. Beer time.

If you were in NSW your rego would be free, here inNT I get about 40 percent off for us pensioners.

Pick up van after being repaired, $708 to remove bearing and fit new , who would have thought ABS would be $200 dearer than standard. Bloody Toyota didn't make with replaceable bearings had to replace whole hub assembly.

We had 40mm of rain last night, I do a greenwaste tip run, get home and someone has the hose out washing the garden and footpaths, not only that he washed the carport floor that had a new sheet of melamine on it, yep, you guessed it, the edges are all swollen and splitting now. 🤬😡🤬😡

Well, yes you can, moral support is an effective way of helping.
