    The pair of opal hunters who pride themselves on their digital/renewable lifestyle learned the hard way that you shouldn't try to carry a large solar panel in 65kph winds if you don't want it torn out of your hands by said winds and smashed on the ground

    But other than that, most of them did OK

    And the sapphire hunters came to the end of their seasons with a whole variety of electrical, mechanical, and hydraulic problems yet somehow still managed to find some

    I do wonder at some of the mines, machines, and electrical installations in these programmes though. Is Australia completely lacking any kind of health and safety regulations?

    Anyway, time to get to bed and do a little reading before lights out

    Goodnight all

    Dinner was sea bass with lemon & pepper butter, with kale and leeks, and a pint of blackcurrant cordial.

    Tea, then, has been lamb scouse with a couple of slices of seedy bloomer

    And four more for the freezer. Though even with two freezers, I'm going to struggle for space for them and the Scotch broth, which is still simmering gently in the slow cooker

    The car earlier was a VW type 2 van, which is still apparently going strong as it's taxed until December

    And some of the gold diggers had to call in a snake catcher when a deadly serpent invaded their patch. I suppose it's cool in a way that Australians can make a living out of catching snakes

    The kitchen here might be a lot smaller than the old one, but it's considerably better designed, especially in terms of the amount of worktop space available. As a result, I can have both the slow cooker and the InstantPot™ going at the same time. So, having spent much of the day making the precursor stock, the slow cooker is now using half of it to make Scotch broth; and the IP is busy making scouse with the rest

    I meant to do this over the weekend, with the stock bit happening overnight, but I kept forgetting to put it on

    Oh - that makes what was already something incredibly difficult way worse.

    If you have children make sure everyone knows the plans for if the worst happens.

    Bed linen being laundered.

    The bed was stripped, aired and remade yesterday but the laundering part didn't really happen.
