Movie day

Today the swim girls and I went off to see a movie. 
This one. Called finding your feet 
I really enjoyed it. 
You laugh, you cry but mostly you enjoy a great story 
It’s got lots of experienced British actors and not violence or sex scenes 
But what it does have is a story that is believable. 
Maybe not for the young. But for those of us that have life experience, and just want to see a movie that 
Is honest and has something for most of us to identify with. Then this is it 
Highly recommend, especially if your after something you can take your mum too and not be embarrassed. 
Let me know if you have seen this or plan too, would love to know what you think

A blessed event

This is my beautiful niece and her hubby with their six month old baby boy 
On Saturday I became he’s godmother 
I feel very honoured 
Poor Natasia was trying to send me pics off her phone. But they didn’t come through clear. So I took 
This one off Facebook from her father in laws post 
So let me introduce you to 
Wyatt Andrew.  
He was very good and didn’t cry 
A lovely day was had by all

Time to pay the fiddler

After spending many hours, days, in the car. I came home to lots of body aches and pains 
Luckily I had my massage, torture, booked on the second day I was home 
Oh my.  Was I broken. 
I don’t think there is a part of my body she didn’t have to beat up to get back into how it’s supposed to be 

Also the pain has prevented me from sleeping, getting worse last night as hubby was away. 
So now I’m sore and tired. So very tired. 
I didn’t swim this morning and slept in, as I didn’t actually sleep till around three this morning 
Our government, in their wisdom, has decided to take away the meds that worked from us, and made it now only possible to purchase 
After going to the doctors to get a prescription. 
So even the ability to take those meds, to help get over a flair, has been taken away from me 

So this morning I have spent it in bed reading, 
But I have to get up soon as even sitting and resting will hurt in diff parts of the body 
I’ll get up shower and take it easy the rest of the day 

Hubby will be home round three this  afternoon and hopefully with him home, and my resting, I’ll be able to sleep tonight 
And wake up nice and refreshed tomorrow 
Well as good as I can be for me 

I figure that no matter what I do I will always have some level of pain, so I might as well do what I have to, live while I can, and deal with th consequences as best as I can. 

I hope your all well and life is good for you

Parkes and the dish

Tonight we ar staying in Parkes in NSW

I have been through this town many times. And always see this massive telescope 
But I have never stopped in and visited. 

So today we made the effort and I loved it 
I’m a little bit of a geek, I just don’t have the brains lol 
Love anything to do with space. 
The telescope is still a working telescope and it’s always monitoring the cosmos. 
While at the dish, we need to keep our phone on airplane mode so as not to interfere with the monitoring 
An interesting fact about the apples trees on the property. 
It makes science come to life. 
If ever in the area and you get a chance to visit. Do. 
It’s very interesting and there is even a few 3D movies you can see for only $7.50
In a few days I will be home 
Looking forward to that. 
It’s been a very nice short break

Today is the day our travel buddies pick up their new van. 
It’s the whole purpose of this trip. 
They are currently at the caravan dealers and hubby went along as well. 
Me. I’m sitting by the pool having a nice relaxing day 
Yesterday we visited Australia zoo and then had a friend who I had not seen for close to 20 years come visit 
So that was a big day 
Today is melodys 2nd birthday 
I know she had no idea and really won’t miss us. But I did have a little cry this morning 
We did take her out on our long weekend together to buy her a gift or two. 
Even though I got her a few things yesterday lol 
It would not be long and we will head home. I can give her lots of cuddles then 
In the meantime I think I’ll go back into the water. It’s getting hot again

Caloundra day three


We have made it to caloundra. The weather was again hot when we got here. But soon after the dark clouds came over. 
We thought that after a few drops of rain it would blow over. 
Wow we were wrong. 
Didn’t really get much rain. But strong winds and a light show you couldn’t BELIVE 

This is one jody sent me. I’ve taken video. And can’t get a shot of the lightening. 
But it was bright and spectacular 
We were nearly blown away. Literally 
It’s all settleded down now 
Now I’m in bed. Safe and sound lol 
Tomorrow we are all going to Australia zoo. 
Our travel buddies have never been 
Today was wonderful as I meet up with my friend who recently moved away from Victoria and now lives here in the sunny state 
She came to visit us here in the caravan park. 
It was great to see her. 
We all miss her at Knitting group. And also at the pool each morning 
But she looks great. 
So now I’m a very happy but tired girl 
So nighty night all 
Hope to have more wonderful things to tell you tomorrow

Narrabri day two

Day two was a long one 
We hit the road at around 7.30. Stopped for fuel and something to eat at Dubbo 
And continued onto Narrabri 
We pulled into the caravan park around five in the afternoon 
After setting up. We hit the pool. It’s been so hot today. 
We hit a hi of 42 degrees Celsius. The heat coming in from the car windows was intense 
You couldn’t touch them! 
The poor air con in the car was trying really hard to keep us cool. But the radiant heat coming off the windows was still
Temp up. 
So jumping into the pool was bliss 
I totally forget to get pics. So these are ones I took from their web site 
Tomorrow we head into caloundra. 
And I’ll be swimming at the beach! 
I hope to come home with a lovely tan. But not get burnt! 
So far the trip has been nice and easy. Hubby and I are listening to an audio book in the car 
It’s what we do when traveling around Australia as you don’t always get radio reception. And music gets a little monotonous 
Hope the weather is nice where you are 
Next stop Queensland

Jerilderie day one

Day one 
We left Home around one in the afternoon.  We still made good time and have stopped at Jerilderie for the night 
It’s pretty hot here. And it’s coming to get hotter as we head north
Luckily we have air con in the car. 
And in our van! 
Camping in a caravan park with power does have its advantages 
We have had our dinner and soon I’ll shower and go to bed 
A huge day tomorrow 
Have fun everyone 
I hope to update again tomorrow night

Getting ready

Here is the new off road van 
It’s going on it’s first long trip 
The couple we went camping with last year have also purchased a new van and they need to collect it from 
Caloundra in Queensland 
So we are all heading off around lunchtime tomorrow to go and get it 
We are the support crew. As they won’t have their van for the trip up. We will use ours for food and cooking paraphernalia 
They have a double swag to sleep in until they pick up their new home on wheels 
Just a short trip, two weeks, but it will be fun 
My wonderful son will take care of everything here 
As we will be close to civilisation I should be able to keep blogging 
So come for the ride, you  never know what we will encounter! 
See ya xxx

A busy weekend

Mum and dad are off to Canberra for a wedding this weekend. So I came to stay with grandma and grandpa 
I was dropped off on Thursday morning and have made new friends already. 
Grandma has two new kittens. And we all are th best of friends 

I’ve been building with giant Lego blocks with grandpa 
But the best part is when it’s done I knock it over and we start again 
But sometimes I just chill and watch some TV 
I’ve kept my grandma so very busy. She is tried but as she loves me so much she doesn’t mind 
I’m such a good girl. I sleep 12 hours a night so she at least gets a good nights sleep 
I’ll be going home on Sunday night 
So still lots of time to play and have fun
We hope you have fun this weekend too
See ya xx
