The End of Holties House, sort of...

I've spent the last week with Dad in Gympie getting him ready for his move to Victoria. Big Brother aka GHB and I came up last week and spent the first few days preparing for a HUGE Garage sale. 
It ran both Saturday and Sunday and achieved all our major goals: ie. Get rid of as much unwanted stuff as possible. Make as much money as possible. Make enough to cover the cost of our airfares. It was a lot of work but also a lot of fun.
Since then it's been all about packing for the big move. GHB went home yesterday and now we are very nearly done. That's just as well because I'm going

home tomorrow night. We set off for the Gold Coast in the morning. I fly tomorrow from there tomorrow night so will have just enough time to stop off at a theme park for a few hours of fun and frivolity. Just me. Dad's not into roller coasters.
Then back to Victoria and home for Mrs Holt Press' birthday on Saturday.
Dad will stay here a few more days until the property settles and the movers arrive then head south with his van fully loaded next week.
Farewell Gympie.
