The Temperature Blanket Diary

I decided to use minimum temperatures because of the wider variety of numbers. I have 25 colours in total. . I tallied the numbers to see which colours were going to be used the most and then spread those colours evenly thoughout the temperatures. . Now to start! Feb 2 2024 Swatch and block. .

Unwind Mudgee - June 16 -19 2022

Ok Unwinders....let's go to Mudgee. The new dates are June 16 - 19. I won't be responsible for any bookings except for lunch on Friday. I have spoken to the stores to let them know we are visiting. I'm staying at Parklands Resort in a family suite. It's quite an economical option for 4 people. Please book your own accommodation. Personally, I wouldn't pay for anything up front but if you do, please make sure that you are able to cancel at any time with no cost to you. Who knows when the world will turn pear shaped again? I am driving and taking fellow travellers with me. Maybe ask in the group if you need a lift. Feel free...
