With O away, W and A were holding the fort at the house, answering the phone and the like. We still had to do the daily watering up there, though.

There was still plenty of mechanical repair work to keep W busy.

I went to the office and faxed the weekly order to Tennant Creek, for the mail plane – which was due to come a day earlier this week. Most of the items were for A at the house – sliced bread, long life milk, cheese, saveloys, cornflakes, envelopes. I ordered some celery and bananas.

Late in the morning there was an email from A – some guests would be coming in early next week. So I had to fax a supplementary order for the plane: cream, tinned chick peas, fruit and salad makings.

I did some more tidying up work in the kitchen and general cleaning.

Just for interest, I checked the sunrise and sunset times: sunrise was 7.19am. Sunset was 6.28pm. So we were getting 11 hours and 9 minutes of daylight.

Some type of palm, growing in really stony ground
