Yesterday morning Christopher and Shaun hand cored all of our bales of wool. Shaun has bruises all over his legs and stomach from using them to push the spikes in. Pleased to have it done though, can now get on and get it shipped.
In the afternoon they worked on the tractor. The gearbox is now back in and the front and back end are joined back together. Christopher is confident the gearbox will work. He now has to put the head back on the engine and hopefully it will be ready to go.
Today Christopher and Bruce (his father) are away to George Island to pick up sheep. I was going but then I couldn't get hold of Tiphanie to check she was okay so I decided to stay in town as I couldn't wait 6 or 7 hours to find out.
