Guess what…. As you read this I am in my car driving along a dusty road heading to town. You see I am off to the bright lights, the City – somewhere I have never been before…. I am off to Melbourne!
I am heading down for the Kidspot Voices 2015 Masterclass and I am even giving a little 5 minute presentation…. I know – get out of town, do they even know that I don’t actually have any clue what the hell I am talking about? Shhhh, don’t tell anyone!!! I will fake it till I make it, and really try not to pee my pants! That would be very embarrassing.
Yesterday I raced around like a mad chook (what’s new) getting Clancy and I ready. Popped some curry in the slow cooker for the crew and we headed off over to Mrs Savvy B’s house for the night. Mrs Savvy B is such a legendary friend and she is looking after Clancy for me for 3 nights! What a champ. How on earth did I get such a great friend who puts up with me….and my kids??? So we headed over through the paddocks and spent the night with her. Oh another legend who I should mention is Mr Chardy who is having the older boys and doing the cooking… not to mention running the station and doing all of his other jobs. I am pretty sure he is Superman. I just can’t keep up with him.
This morning I was up before sparrows fart to drive into Mt Isa. At least I was in the same time zone and didn’t have to adjust my clock. My flight leaves at 12:30pm so I had to get going early. I can’t wait to board that plane and sip on a baby bottle of wine… CHILD FREE!!! Is there anything better than flying solo? Book, wine…. peace and quiet! Love it!
If you would like to follow along on my adventure then by all means, please do so, I would hate you to miss out!!! You will find me on Facebook at Miss Chardy or on Instagram @misschardy8 – get on board and lets have some fun.
I am meeting up with some blogging pals and we are sharing an apartment in the city. These are girls I have really only met once in the flesh but they are my cup of tea. You can go and have a snoop and check them out if you like.
First up we have Kirsten, from Kirsten and Co. One funny lady. Quick go and have a read.
Then there is Amanda from A Cooker and a Looker.
And Emily from Have a Laugh on Me.
Bec from The Plumbette is also staying in the same block. I haven’t actually met Bec before so I am really looking forward to having a wine with her. I feel like I know her.
This blogging world is a funny old place and I wouldn’t throw it in for quids. Love that I have a whole new circle of friends!
So I arrive in Melbs around 6:30pm…. then well, the City is my oyster. I will be cracking open a Chardy and sharing many laughs with these fabulous ladies.
Tomorrow we head to Hawthorn for the Kidspot Voices 2015 Masterclass, where I will get to catch up with the Who’s Who of the Blogosphere. I can’t wait. Yes I am looking at you Style and Shenanigans and Escape with Kids. Not to mention She Sows Seeds…. don’t worry – if you are looking lonely I will rescue you!
On Sunday when I return back to reality my sister will be at Brisbane Airport to meet me and travel home with me, can’t wait. We haven’t seen each other for 1.5 years! Do you think there will be tears?
So tell me, will you be there too? Link to your blog in the comments… a good old fashioned “give yourself a plug”!
Stay tuned for the second instalment next week when I give you the run down on my weekend in the big smoke.
