After a leisurely breakfast, we moved back to the showground which is all quiet again.
We went to Mitchelton for coffee and to Patricks Rd for lunch. We had bought a boned leg of lamb from Lindsay, the butcher, and Sarah asked for it to be cooked this evening so I spent the afternoon in the kitchen. Dinner was a great success and we didn't get back to the Motley until gone eight.
Al needed to check the Beep before driving to Sydney. He had noticed a clunking noise coming from the off side front suspension when driving over speed bumps. I checked out all the things which might have been making the rattles without finding any vital parts that need attention. I also tightened up the wires restraining the exhaust baffles and cured the annoying engine noises.
Jean and I both had doctors appointments in the afternoon so we retired to the Motley early.
Jean did some sewing for Sarah and I went to Aussie Traveller to check out their awning and to Whitworths to buy the bits to finish off the new battery installation.
I rang the Dr Mungommery's rooms to make an appointment for next January as requested but they don't have next years diary yet so they couldn't do it. They suggested I ring back in November!.
We took Sarah and Karen to Stones Corner to buy some bridal fabric offcuts from a place Paula had found. It took a little searching to find the place as the flyer was for a one time sale in someone elses premises. Sarah found the shop and arranged for them to make up some bags of offcuts.
We spent a bit of time window shopping. This is a surprising place with a busy shopping precinct in a short section of converted main road. There are plenty of pavement cafes, book shops, fashion stores, and so on.
We had a very pleasant lunch at one of the cafes, picked up the cloth at the factory a couple of block away and returned to Ferny Hills in time for Karen to pick up her kids from school.
We retired to the Motley for a light supper.
In the morning we went to Kallangur to do the laundry. We had lunch with Al at Cafe Zanetti and then went shopping at Spotlight with Sarah.
