The possum is still munching despite my leaving food out for him (and it is a him) and his taste is expanding now includes bok choy, silverbeet and lebanese cress. I have started on putting a floppy top to the fence in the hope of keeping him out of the garden. At least now I've moved the van he isn't waking me up several times each night by jumping on the roof.

Despite carefully avoiding areas with lots of frost it turns out this area between Coffs and Grafton gets much colder than either - already below 5 degrees in Vinnie. The drifts of fog when driving at night is a bit scary too. A neighbour has recorded -13 in the past! Luckily my down sleeping bag is warm although getting out of it can be a problem.

Finally got the survey map. Unfortunately he recommends the floor level be above 104m to avoid floods (not the true height above sealevel), plus the waste water has to be 100m from stream - both of which mean only a tiny area in the top left corner is ok, and the council wants the house 20m away from edges - so it is very tight.
