The photo that wasn't....

Thanks for all your good wishes about our soggy garage. We did in fact get it dry. Today was such a beautiful day I actually got four loads of washing done and dried in the SUN!

I had great plans to show you a panorama of the Tablelands today. We had some house inspections in the late afternoon, so DH and I bundled the dog (who tends to want to protect the house against starngers for us - a liability in the hosue selling business) into the car and drove off, me clutching my lovely and much-cherished camera. We drove about an hour to the 'right' spot and jumped out of the car. I spent some time finding a good place to stand to take the picture and got the camera all ready to click. I pressed down on the shutter button and ....nothing happened. I thought I must have forgotten to turn the camera on so switched the right switch, aimed, pressed, and ...still nothing. I thought it must be the light was wrong, that I may have the setting wrong. They all checked out. I tried different lighting by swinging around and focusing on DH. Again...nothing. I had to admit defeat and believe what I hoped was not true. I had to admit that the BATTERY WAS DEAD!! I then tossed the useless thing into the car and tramped around a bit instead, moaning about how wonderful the pictures WOULD have been, to DH's and the dog's amusement.

So I'm sorry, but there is no craft today due to us spending every spare moment washing clothes/linen and washing rain spatter off all the house windows, polishing and vacuuming the house, then making ourselves and the dog scarce so total strangers could tramp through. And there is no photo due to the inexplicable dead battery in my camera. But you already know that.

Who knows what tomorrow may bring :-)

Oh I hate that battery stuff! They always die at the most inopportune moments! Reading about all your keeping the house buyer ready reminds me why my DH hates moving so much....Good Luck, and may tomorrow bring a better day!

I have spare batteries but they are never fully charged when I need them so its a waste of time really!
