Invergowrie Interlude

Finally I have wifi access again – at a motel near Canberra! When I got back from the Brisbane trip, our modem had broken down, and no replacement till the middle of this week. So I couldn’t post any news about Chris’s wedding or the school visits. But I’ll post something now – a stopover chez Sophie Masson on the way back home through New England. We couldn’t remember the last time I visited, but definitely more than a dozen years ago. Great to see Sophie and David in their mud brick house – David cooked a great dinner (won’t forget that tarte tatin in a hurry!) in the morning, there’d been a frost, and an old grey kangaroo watched us thoughtfully across the veggie patch. Such a lovely interlude! Only one tiny snag – a house run on solar power has direct current, which is no use for using a mobile charger on! (I found out too late that Sophie and David have a converter to change DC into AC, so that a mobile charger can then change it back from AC to DC!
