Gai's orchid starts to flower and put up two spikes. Later in the month a third spike starts to shoot up. Clive also sets about restoring Michael's light box that sits over his fish tank. After dissembling the light box to single planks then came the time to sand it all back, re-assemble it and then give it a few coats of clear polyurethane. Finally a new LED 'fluro' light was put in and the project finished. Michael buys a new dual cab ute and the Manga gets sold to a good home.

Clive is involved in a minor car accident. Good job he was driving the Jeep!!

Late in the month Nan arrives for her two week yearly visit, but as it turns out she will be back again for Christmas and New year when Alister and the family are up on the Coast to get Charlee baptised.
