Still on it

Well, we are home. ( Like, last week)

We pulled a 17 hour day from Tamworth to Mackay, and then 4 hours home the next day. Needless to say our kids are EXCEPTIONAL travellers, but the 4 hours from Mackay to home were as long as the 17 hours the day before. Hat drivers and caravans are not cool.

Well, just so you know, I am still researching Auld Lang Syne.

I am.

I know you are waiting, so will hurry it up.

I know that you aren't sleeping for wont of knowing.


Only another week and a half till school goes back and I can't say I will be sorry. Kids have been really good though, while I have been at work.

We went to the library today and I was going to treat them to morning tea at the library cafe as their behaviour has been so great.

Cue the sirens and the "evacuate please" voice on the loudspeaker and a lady running up the aisles in a hard hat. Yup, we were EVACUATED! I am now an EVACUEE! Could smell burning something outside and the firies dramatically screeched to a halt. Then stood around awaiting instruction.

Will let you know what happened when I find out.

We didn't hang around.

Instead, we went to another cafe, the Luka Bean and had morning tea with Jonathon Thurston and some of the NQ Cowboys who were having their breakfast there.

Yay, the evacuation!!!!!

Stay beautiful

  1. Hi there, like your mum to clear up the Auld Lang Syne issue??????

    From my small niche in Mitchell I send my knowledge!!!!

    Inspired by an old Scottish tune, the meaning of Auld Lang Syne (the "good old days") has become the National Anthem of New Year's Eve celebrations. The song is traditionally sung at midnight in almost all English speaking countries of the world. The lyrics of the song were written by the poet Robert Burns and published after his death in 1796.

    How is that for a little bit of trivia daughter!!!!
