Today was Moyra's actual birthday, so she had more presents from Pete at breakfast plus phone calls.

Moyra and Alan went off to a lovely little church hall in Drysdale to a life drawing class for a couple of hours. Winks and Pete did some gardening and chores. Good to have time together

Later in the afternoon Pete took Winks and Al to the 'Men's Shed' where Pete joins other retired blokes to do 'things'. The shed is well equipped for producing many repurposed items in wood, metal and other materials. It is a great place fo men to get together and chat, work on projects, garden or just hang out.

On the way home we went to Bunnings Hardwear superstore in Leopold, which is huge and holds a massive variety of stock. We ought the Kangeroo Foor plant and sand.

In the evening we went out to dinner to celebrate Moyra's birthday at Schnitz restaurant. Great concept as you choose your meat or veggie option, select crumb and add salad and chips, if you like! We had sweet potato chips. We bought a large tub of caramel ice cream for pudding!

We managed to catch

They collect pallets from Bunnings, break them up, chop the planks into kindeling, which is sold to raise funds. Repurposing with a win win for all.
