One Day at a Time

I can’t write that title without finishing it with “Sweet Jesus”. Do you know the hymn? I don’t think I’m old enough to know it but obviously I am. 🙄

Wednesday, 3rd Aug. We are still in Adelaide. Still waiting for Tank to be be fixed. We are in an Air B&B. Three more nights here. Hoping we get an answer on Tank, if not today then in the next two days. We can only do it one day at a time.


We are trying to make the most of our time here. We’re doing a lot of walking. We Googled the best things to do in Adelaide. We have done most of the top 12.

Adelaide Central Market
Adelaide Museum
The Donald Bradman Collection – at Adelaide Oval
Botanic Garden
Eamonn Vereker Glass Studio – not in the Top 12 but worth a visit
Himeji Japanese Garden
Salvador Dali sculpture in Rundle Mall


We are not really homeless. We have a perfectly good home in Perth. We don’t have one here though. We are in our fourth accommodation in 2 weeks. We walk everywhere and carry our belongings in our bags. We get a little glimpse of what it’s like to be homeless – or marginally housed. My sister suggested that I get a shopping trolley to carry our stuff around!


Thursday, 4th. Update on Tank, our Toyota Coaster. The Electronic Control Unit (ECU) is broken. Fortunately, (God-incidence) we can get a second hand one from Melbourne. They are rare. It’s also half the cost of a new one from Japan – which would take 3 to 4 weeks to get here. Hopefully, the ECU from Melbourne will be here Monday and we’ll be on our way again next week. 🙏🏽

Until next time…
