November 2013 - leaving home

Well, we have done it,  sold our house and we will live in the van until we find a new one.  We moved out on 11 November and stayed in the van at Mathew's house for a couple of days, then moved over to EPIC (Canberra's showground).

We have set up the van, although the aerial is not too good and we can't get ABC at all.  Horror horror.  Ian has bought a new aerial but needs some bits to install it which are proving to be elusive.   When we first moved to EPIC we had to get an electrician to come and install a new water heater element as ours was tripping out the electricity.

We had family dinner with the kids at the Southern Cross Club, and caught up with their news, including Grace who has just returned from overseas.

It is taking some time to get used to the bed in the van, Ian's feet are hanging out the end again.   We are also having trouble remembering where things are or should be.  Remember, Ian can walk from one end of this house to the other in 4 steps so there is not many places for things to get lost. not. 

Ian will update the blog as we go along, so keep an eye out.  We expect to leave Canberra on 1 December and head north.
