Before & after

This is how I have spent the last couple of days, giving my camping chairs a new lease of life, the frames are really sturdy so decided to give them a sand down and fresh coat of varnish and make up some new covers. I should get another few years out of them. Went to buy new ones at the weekend, they were so flimsy in comparison to my old ones decided to fix my old faithfuls up instead of buying new ones.
Now we just have to keep fingers crossed the weather picks up by Thursday when we head off to Iluka for a weeks camping, its raining here at the moment and forecast for the weekend doesn't look promising but hay it wouldn't be Easter if we weren't camping in the rain.

Hope the Easter Bunny finds you all and a safe and Happy Easter to everyone

I have just spent a wonderful week showing my cousin David and his wife Pat around the Tweed and rediscovering the area for myself. I usually just send my visitors off to explore by themselves but with David and Pat, Fred and I decided to take them and we had a wonderful time going places we hadn't been to in years and made some great discoveries, Currumbin Sanctuary being one of them it is so much bigger and better than the last time we were there and made all the more enjoyable watching my pommie cousins experience the aussie way of life. Just wish I had taken better photos.
I said goodbye to them this morning, they are picking up their daughter Kathryn from Brisbane airport and then making their way to Townsville before visiting the Batlowites and then back to England
