......A very big thank you to all for the messages, emails, flowers and phone calls of support, condolences and friendship during these past weeks.
We had a wonderful gathering of friends last Friday - a few tears and lots of laughs and happy memories.
The Silver Thimble will be closed for a little longer. I need to be at home to attend to a few jobs around the property, the main one at this stage is to keep up with the water for the stock. This is what's keeping me busy at the moment.
The engine needs to be started and stopped every second day or so to pump up to that high tank which then feeds several other tanks and troughs. We're in the process of finding out all the information for a solar pump, but it's going to take a while to install etc. In the meantime, I'm actually getting a few jobs done that I don't usually have time for - like cleaning out cupboards!!
I will probably get into the shop within a few weeks on maybe a 9 to 3 basis for a while - if that doesn't happen, I will let you know. Once we have the water situation sorted, we should be good to go.
Sincere thanks to everyone, once again.
Talk soon, Sandy.
