As I think I have mentioned before up here in the forest we have to be self sufficient. Our electricity is supplied by solar so we only have to get our water delivered.  Now we have lived like this for over 6 years and are quite happy, we chose this farm for its location, charm and peacefullness, knowing full well that we would have to have delivered 5,000 ltrs of water every 3/4 months. When we first moved here we were told about Mannell the local `mad tractorista’, a jolly chap always smiling and ready to help.  So Mannell has delivered our water since then with many a laugh and the odd whoopsy. 

He drives a rather smart blue tractor that pulls the water bowser around, and he like all our neighbours does not go slow.  The first year he tried to deliver water he had a puncture at the start of the track and ended dumping all the water. The next day tyre fixed he delivered our water during a small storm water, water, everywhere, laughing at the  situation. But had a friend with him in a van with a spare tyre just incase, the track was not as smooth as it is now.  Mannell has become a friend over the years and nothing seems to frazz him, if we are out when he delivers (as has happened) he simply fills the cisterna leaves then we have to wander round to find him and pay for it, knowing I am at the Petanca courts nearly every afternoon he waits for us to find him.  

Take last winter. We had snow here which normally lasts around a day or so, this time however it lasted for nearly a week and was several inches deep.  We had ordered a delivery before it arrived, and Mannell was not surprised when we cancelled it as the cisterna was full.  Then last year on our last delivery there was a small whoopsy, backing up to the cisterna the bowser caught the edge of it and partly demolished the corner.  It was an accident no real damage done, I have since rendered the corner and all is well. 

So when Mannell delivered the water this time I let the wife direct him in, no problem, a big grinning face greeted us with the words “sin nieve” and lots of chuckles, he had not forgotten.  As the water was pumped in I talked to Mannell about the new cisterna I was thinking of building.  “No, no, no need to do that cost you a lot of money. I would simply get two more tanks like this (we have a 2,000 ltr header tank) and place them side by side, link them with a pump and all will be fine”. We went on to discuss the pros and cons of this and  where I might better place these extra tanks. I like Mannell he is pleasant, cheerful and always waves or speaks when we see or pass him in the car.

?????????????

I seem to be naming the creatures who wander, fly or crawl into our lives and cause us some amusement. Although I will state here, it’s actually my wife who names them I just comment.

Take Git! He is a small no medium-sized Gecko who can be found in the battery house and seems to wait for my wife to arrive to turn on the inverter. Then I hear ‘You little git don’t do that’. Git sits on the panel bar then just as she reaches for the switch he makes a dart up the wall, we both know they wont hurt us but after her experiences with the odd Hissing Sid any sudden movement makes her jump, which explains why all doors and windows have net frames.

Well the other evening we came home from town to find a small version of Git between the fly screen frame and the front door. My wife opened the outer door and the little git slid under the main door into the hall. Leaving both doors wide open my wife then disappeared inside telling me the gecko was behind one of the water bottles under the book shelf. So there I am on hands and knees trying to see this little thing which had put its self into the corner and was playing ‘you can’t see me’; however once it knew it was spotted it tried to make a break for it but I managed to shoo it out of the door without hurting it. Later that night I heard my wife on her way to turn off the generator ‘oh no you don’t you Git’ apparently Git himself was sitting on the wall above the doorway, she presumed, in the hope of a quick dive into the warm.

I will admit they are noisy blighter’s, we had enough of them in the little house when we first moved here all night long chatting to each other then we both used to shout SHUT UP!!!
