Packed up the house yet again on 31st March and left at around mid-day. Decided to drop Tia off to kennels a day earlier and headed into Queanbeyan to set up camper for the night. Bought a cooked chook and some salads form the nearby supermarket and read before bedding down.
1st April. My eldest's birthday. Off into Canberra and into Exhibition Park in Canberra (EPIC) to register for the volunteer training session. Epic was begining to come alive as a festival site with marquees and bunting going up all over. A large group of volunteers were taken for a familiarisation walk around relevant sections of the grounds and a BBQ lunch provided us with a free light meal.
We selected a camping site away from the performers area that we usually camp at. As we are going to be here for 9 days we put up the annexe roof and make ourselves comfortable and peg out a small tarp adjoining our spot to allow Jamie to put up his tent near us when he arrives from Melbourne on Thursday. Andrew has his first volunteer duty in stores tomorrow and I have planned a grand tour of all my favourite op shops. In fact I spend the next two days doing that and get confirmation that the sale of my house is completed by the end of Tuesday.
On Wednesday we get word that some gardening is required at Andrew's old house before the sale on his place is finalised on Thursday so we hire a mower and whippersnipper and set to. Decide to collect boxes of white tiles, fencing whire and star pickets that we previously left there two years ago as they will be utilised in our new home and also take three plaster cherubs I left lurking in the garden!
On Thursday I begin my first rostered shift in the ticket office and quickly adapt to the lap tops and special programme written for ticket and camping sales at this festival.
