Workbenches and postie bikes

Had a great day yesterday. It wasn’t too hot and the kids had a big day of activities on Saturday which meant I got a reprieve from fathering which in turn meant…SHED TIME !  My stell sub-contractor sold me one of his old work benches for $90 which he spray painted for me and after scouring Russian Market, I found a very nice vice to mount on it at $20.

After lunch Chigao Sean came over with his Honda 90 . In Australia we call these things “postie bikes” because..well…the postmen ride them ! Sean had his imported from Japan and had some panniers made by the NGO friends for the princely sum of $25. He bought some flat steel and we fabricated some mounts for the panniers. The result ; awesome.

After Sean left we had a bunch of giggling teenage girls over ( Nek and Joss’ friends ) for a bbq . They had a great time in the kitchen trying to outdo each other with the spicy mango salad. Giggling. Lots of giggling. Grace and Angus revelled in the attention and me…I was in bed by 6pm.
