It has been a productive week, although it seems as though my life has become a cycle of list writing, running around town, achieving something while at the same time discovering something else which I need to attend to which I had hitherto been completely unaware. Yet I blunder along and this week has indeed been productive, including the aquisition of inverter, charger, deep cycle batteries, water tanks, gas bottle, water pump, fire extinguishers and pipe of various description. Now just need to bolt it all together in the appropriate configuration in readiness for the espresso machine, which was ordered today. On the earthquake front, was woken up by a rather large aftershock at around 6:20am. Almost three weeks on and the earth is still moving.
