Day One Ground Zero

Neither of us slept well. 
The tension and exhaustion of the last few weeks, the uncertainty, wondering if we had made the right decision. Plus the caravan bed was too small, hard and we were too hot under the woollen doona so we were up at first light.

The first thing was to settle the birds into their new homes. The 2 kookaburras and the magpies went into the aviary with the tawnies. They hoed into breakfast and explored their new cage.
We had to assemble the cage for the corellas and cockatoos. It is a little on the small size, but they will have to put up with it until we collect the 2 large avairies from Helensvale.
Fred, Cackycockie and Cackatoo went into small cages.
The bobcat was delivered and we were introduced to country folks favourite past-time - having a chat. After well over an hour I had to break it off as we had plenty to do and we were starving.
After breakfast we turned our attention to unloading the couch and blowing up our camp bed in the shed.

This is our hot water service. Finding timber is NOT a problem.
This is our self cleaning expansive bathroom. The container to the right has water. A bucket, a pot a cake of soap and we can wash away the brown dust!
After all this activity, we were more than ready for bed by 9pm.
(Mental Note remove stones before laying down an inflatable bed!)
Tomorrow we will get our REAL bed off the trailer!
