10 out of 10 coffee: Mitchell Outback Qld

A new coffee shop has opened in Mitchell, to the delight of everyone who appreciates excellent coffee. Lemon Pie Gift Shop is the venue, located alongside the Mitchell Pharmacy.  This morning we enjoyed coffee and conversation with friends in the delightful setting of this shop, located in the main street of Mitchell.   Well done Krystal and Lauren, and what a great way to begin the weekend!

This past week has seen Doug's leg more of a problem, with increased pain.  However, the doctor has reassured Doug that it'll take time to heal, with antibiotics to control infection.  As you can see in the photos, his leg and foot are not pretty sights.

The installation of solar panels on our roof --  here at Riverside -- was carried out over two half days, this past week.  It's a 3.5 kW system with 15 panels on the roof.  We plan to increase it to 5 kW by adding 8 more panels from our other house.  At present, we love watching the existing electricity meter running backwards!

The medical services here in Mitchell are excellent.  Our GP bulk bills and a wide range of health professionals visit the Mitchell Hospital, on a regular basis.  This week I have benefited with both physio and dietician appointments.

Tomorrow we leave for a 14 day holiday to the Queensland coast, north of Rockhampton.  Our accommodation is pet-friendly, so we're taking our two German shepherds and our 15-year-old Siamese cat.

My next blog will be written on the weekend of the 11 August, when I'll let you know the highlights of our adventure up north.
