We're back from the child's long awaited weekend at the Surf Lifesaving Branch Titles in Bowen. In seems like an awfully long weekend...
We had a good weekend except for some minor problems. I drove the four hour drive on Friday so I wouldn’t have to get up and leave home at four in the morning, not my favourite thing.
We had a great time stopping at all the fruit stalls, buying all the in season fruit and buying bananas that weren’t $12.99 a kilo. I stopped at the local library for a chat and a tour – which means I can write off the mileage and petrol on my tax…
Our Motel was pretty nice. The club books en masse and we got one of the refurbished rooms and had a microwave and all. http://www.whitsundaysandsresort.com/
The little guy was impressed with the scrub turkeys and bush walk and the fact that there was a cove right at the back of our room. We even saw a turtle swimming there. The child woke up at 5.00am and we had to go exploring - but I survived.
My minor problem occurred at home with the dog! He’s an escape artist and after he escaped for possibly the millionth time on Wednesday I decided he’d have to go on a running lead.( Read more... )
On Saturday it turned out all the younger members events were all on Sunday, much to everyone’s dismay. My little guy wasn’t too bent out of shape as it meant he could have a play in the stinger net and I got inveigled into being an official for the day!( Read more... )
With the Branch titles over and only one major school event left before we leave, I can now concentrate on our holiday…It’s only 13 days till we leave for the States!
The child’s passport, the problematic one, has arrived. My passport, the straight-forward one hasn’t. If it doesn’t turn up today I have to ring the passport office. Since it’s next to impossible to talk to an actual human there you may have to listen to some ranting about bureaucracy…
I was going to say lots of fic related things too – but shall spare you until later! *evil laugh*
