Time to rejoice, as I finally have a proper aircon unit in my house.

And not just any aircon, but a fully ducted system!

Of course, since installation the only really warm day was when I wasn’t home - but this thing should be awesome when the heat rolls in (or equally the cold).

Look at the size of that thing! The unit that went in the roof was far larger than I expected - those things on top are rolls of duct tape for scale.

 
 Image

The installers had to remove part of the roof to get it in - took them from 8:30 in the morning until approaching 7 in the evening - was a big job!

This is the outside section. She’s not small either.

Now I just need to wait and see how much the power bill is impacted...

My cousin Hannah got married the other week to a chap called James (or maybe David, but that’s another story...)

In addition to the fact that my cousin getting married is awesome in and of itself, my Forester was part of the wedding procession!

The Golden Castle

There is an ancient legend...

Before Dragons, before Mathias's Invasion,

Before the Crusader Kings, before even the Black Falcons,

There was an ancient castle

Made of pure gold...

Facebook buy and sell groups can be great (or terrible, depending on your viewpoint). Just up the road in Penguin, this legendary castle popped up for sale.

Now, of course, compared to later Lego castles it looks pretty stupid (I mean, why yellow?).

But this particular set occupies a very important place in the history of Lego. This was the first minifig scale castle Lego produced (there was an earlier castle but that was in the days before minifigs). This was the first time that Lego knights and swords and things were produced. 

This castle was released in 1978, as part of the standard Lego town theme. The seperate Castle theme didn't come along until a few years later when they released more sets. The Lego Castle theme was huge, and has remained popular even since (although the current Nexo Knights is a bit of an embarrassment).

The various patterns on these original shields and torsos etc are all stickers - so finding them in this condition is pretty incredible. For toys that are almost 40 years old - they are in fantastic nick!

Bathurst

So - another of my bucket list ticked off. Finally made it up to Bathurst for the Great Race!

It’d been something I wanted to do for ages, but it hadn’t ever really been viable - until Jason mentioned that he had a mate living in Bathurst that he could crash with. Well, that was enough motivation - we decided we should try and get up there.

Turns out that Jason’s mate was actually his Dad’s mate that Jason had never met - but that was still good enough - so we organised to pitch a tent in his back yard and headed up.

We took Friday off and basically drove all day to get up there - and spend Saturday and Sunday at the circuit. We found a nice spot on Skyline to watch the race. It wasn’t the best spectator spot, but it had the advantage of having a big screen close by, so combined with our radios we could actually keep tabs on what was going on - which would have been almost impossible at some of the ‘better’ spots.

Such as Forest Elbow - that was a much more spectacular spot - but no screens. The race is well and truly long enough to move around a bit though.

Far out the track is steeper than it looks though. I can see it on the TV now, but until you’ve been around the track you don’t realise how insane it actually is.

On the Monday we hunt around in Bathurst for a while - and eventually the track was opened so we could drive the circuit. Of course, the speed limit is 60km so it wasn’t exactly a flying lap - but I’m very glad to say I’ve driven around it now.

The race itself was awesome too - even if it wasn’t a brilliant day for Ford.

The mighty Forester on the straight at Bathurst!
