    Well - been smiling after last weekend.
    Had 3 full days down at Tharwa Valley Forge camping in -5 deg C conditions.
    Another KC’er and I turned lumps of steel into something quite useful and beautiful

    Took the wife's Corolla for it's 6 month service ..... @ drop I read out the klm's 13,103 = 6.5 years old & service guy says that's got to be a record :eek: .... oh yeah if we hadn't sold the CR-V it'd be about 8,000klms. Next he commented on who details the car :D

    Loan car is a Corolla Hybrid - this is the 1st Hybrid I've driven but open minded and looking forward to the experience ;) ..... CVT I get the fuel economy side of it BUT not the functionality side as they are crap :(. That aside just to drive it was fun.

    At pickup the service tech asks if I it's for sale ..... low klms, 6 speed manual, sought after model ..... you should get a premium price which I was happy to find out and be complemented about it's condition :).

    The knife making course looks like it was awesome, well done guys. Is it something that occurs regularly, would love to do it with my son?

    After the fire season and the COVID lockdowns, that affected so many small businesses, a quick plug for friends that run this business:

    Our Polo goes in for it's 5 year service later this month, it's done 13.5-ish which I thought was pretty remarkable, especially since until we bought the bus it was our only car!

    Hey Barry, I've been looking at that too......would be an awesome week !
    Not sure that I'm into the armour etc. but the concept of a gathering with food and drink, tents, knives,axes and fires really appeals to me;)
    Cheers,

    When do I go back to the office?

    Sorry HR says no. Office is too small and you are a contractor. Besides you can do everything from home.

    So you want me to keep working from home? Surrounded by Cocker Spaniels and old kombies?

    Yes.

    I'm so upset.
