Just another busy day

The 4x4 now has it’s heavy duty towbar fitted.  I wrote to three companies asking for a quote and went with the cheapest.  They seem to have done a good job with the fitting.


I spent some time yesterday evening working out a wiring diagram for the accessories we intend to fit.  This will also allow me to identify the required components.

Accessories Wiring

The courier delivered the TPMS purchased from China.  I’ve put it to one side until the rest of the electrical accessories arrive as there is no point in pulling the vehicle dash apart multiple times.


Just before lunch we made another visit to the furniture shop anticipating they would have keen pricing so close to the end of the financial year.  Jan selected the electric reclining chairs in “lipstick red” leather.  She’s already done a test run during an earlier visit.  Only this time it was individual chairs rather than the TV couch.


The damned local parrots have been giving one of the large trees in the front yard hell.  It’s laden with fruit.  A type of soft green nut the size of an acorn.  They’re not small birds and have a screech the same size.  One other side affect is they break off large twigs which then need to be raked up and removed from the lawn.  The orange tree (the one where the fruit smells like cat wee) has also decided to drop more fruit on the back lawn.  And then the Frangipani joined in shedding leaves.  I’m busier than a one armed paper hanger.  I might have to invest in either a chainsaw or a shotgun Smile

Oh, our first electrical bill arrived today.  $90 for 35 days.  The new electrical monitor I installed on 26 3june has calculated we have used $5.04 in the last 3 days.  It will be interesting to see what it reads after a month.  Of course as we “acquire” more electrical “stuff” it can only go up!
