What? You didn’t know I had been missing!!
Well we left town and drove 5 hours out to Goondiwindi
to spend 10 hours in a pub.
Oh I asked myself the same thing many times, particularly as the hours ticked by ever so slowly.
90th birthday party so we had to be there.
It wasn’t a totally foreign and uncomfortable weekend.
We thoroughly enjoyed the ten hours of driving. We listened to several audio stories – War Horse, Farm Boy (the sequel to War Horse) and The Hatchet.
We overtook numerous road trains
and caravans…and then had to re-overtake them after we stopped at rest areas.
No, no portable dvd players needed in our car.
Our little men are great travellers and there’s always so much to see outside the windows.
and preparing the bales for transport.
I suspect the boys and I will research cotton production this week, while we’re all so interested in it.
So that’s where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to.
I’m so glad to be home though and I hope it’s a really really long time before I have to spend time in a pub again.
However we’ve all sorts of driving hopes and dreams for the future.
We’d really like to see more of our lovely country.
