086. Day 91. Friday 12th June 2009. Rant begins…
Donnis left for work at 6am and I could not go back to sleep.
As the morning progresses I discover I am making no progress (deliberate play on words to progress the story) and I am not going to have an easy day.
In fact I feel a rant coming on.
The car battery was left on charge overnight but it is still flat. I put it on “start” and soon have the motor purring. I take it for a nice drive, return to just outside the garage as I will go to the tyre shop after breakfast.
The battery is dead. It did not even hold the charge. The bike battery is also dead but I knew that before I left so I bought a new battery while in Mackay but I cannot get to the bike as it is jammed in the back of the garage. Michelle has stored her furniture here and will move it in the morning so I might put off the bike until then.
Neighbours Stan n Dennis call over for a tour of the MH. Dennis brings a trailer around so we can stack in all the tree clippings from yesterday.
I manage to vacuum the MH by mid afternoon and take a few internal photos.
Donnis arrives home at 3pm so take her car to buy a new battery and set up an appointment at the tyre shop for 8.30 in the morning.
Oh No! The battery terminal posts are too large for my terminal clamps and I cannot get to Supa Cheap before they close.
