Saturday 6th February 2010

Today was another wet, grey day. Started off ok, and we could still wear t-shirts until late afternoon, but the rain was heavy and it makes setting things up on the boat a lot harder. We have pretty much finished buying things – thanks goodness!! Can you believe that I’m sick of shopping??!! We have hit so many shops, among them Costco (amazing bargains!! And lots of freebies to taste – we had ‘lunch’ here one day with all the samples, finishing with a taste of the ‘All American Chocolate Cake’ which was about 40cms wide and 20cms high and oh so rich and decadant!!), Sears, and Wal-Mart (open until 11pm!! Look for us in the next instalment of those ‘people of Wal-Mart’ emails!!)
Bruce and Claire arrive early Monday morning, and we’ve set up their cabin and are pretty much organised for our first visitors!
Bought a TV today. Still working on the reception, but at least it means we can watch dvd’s with better sound and picture than what we had on the laptop.
Currently sitting in the saloon sipping Chandon (made by Moet & Chandon) – purchased from CSV Pharmacy for $18.99 (retails in Australia for around $50). Got my eye on a bottle of ‘proper’ Moet for $40. Oh – and we saw Jansz today – roughly the same price as we’d pay in Tassie ($25)!!! I guess we’ll stick to the Chandon and Moet while we can...
