    so, we haven’t seen Brian for a few months but have been keeping an eye out, just in case. Anyway, this morning I went out to water the plants and found Brian’s cousin, having a nice bat breakfast

    Yes it’s a gap, not intentional, it was a mistake in the cutting. It will be fixed when we do the next stage, can’t be bothered getting all the tools out for that little bit. We will be working on the gazebo soon and hope to get it done by Christmas. These are the monster uprights and they are very, very heavy. We have to work out how to lift them into place over the stirrups without killing ourselves. If anyone has any ideas we would be all ears.
  7. I read on here that gas engineers can be found with experience of converting some small parts on range cookers and certifying. I dont know the details of it and the post on here didnt share them, but it appears possible to do it. I'll find the post later. Yes it can be done but oh boy it's expensive if you can actually find anyone who will touch it. While in NSW our caravan gas appliances were fine but once we moved to QLD they all had to be adapted and certified and all I can say is never again. We took our brand new, still in box Webber b b q to our local gas supplier and they told us to throw it away. They wouldn't even look at it because it didn't have an Aussie certification sticker on it. We asked them if they knew anyone who could do it and they just said 'no, don't bother'
  8. Do not bring any gas appliances. Or gas b b q , gas fitters here won’t touch them.

    Yes understood @Bobj but for me the connection is my mum and grandma who always had these in the garden when we were growing up in England.

    Queensland fires

    We are quite a way away from the fires. We had our own bushfire licking at our boundary fence a few months ago and I can tell you it is very frightening when it comes.

    Lots of fires burning today in Queensland. Stay safe everyone and look out for each other.

    Mini wall is almost finished but we need to hire a stone cutter to finish off the coping stones on the top. We are waiting for a clear weekend to do it all at once.
