Well I tell you what it has been a busy few days of town trips. Last Thursday Miss Pip, the kids and I packed up and headed to town at 5am. Clancy had a Prep “get to know you” afternoon, then on Friday both Harry and Clancy went to school for an Activity Day. The kids were excited to see their friends who they probably haven’t seen since the beginning of December and I was excited to see mine.
Now some exciting stuff has been happening on the friend front. Two families have moved to the area and have started on Mt Isa School of the Air. This is particularly exciting for me because I thought I would be friendless soon when all of my friends finish with School of the Air, but don’t worry a new gang has arrived. And guess what – both families have boys in Clancy’s year. Yay! See… this is his new friend, Marshall. Aren’t they just too cute for words??!!!
One of these families has even moved next door – we have new neighbours. Clancy is beside himself with excitement (as am I). Ruth (my new neighbour) is a laugh a minute. I have always wanted to do a Podcast with this funny lady now we don’t really have an excuse, apart from the fact that she is in a total mess trying to unpack with a Prep kid and twin 1 year old girls. That is a whole Podcast in itself really, isn’t it!? How that woman is getting anything done is beyond me. I feel we need to enlist a whole army for her and move in to help her get unpacked. A working bee if you will. Hang in there Ruthie.
Anyway, back to the story… town. The other friend who has moved up – Annabelle (Marshall’s Mum) came in for Activity Day. Gosh is was great to see them. Of course there was the usual wine and nibbles platter trotted out at the caravan park…
Just your standard white trash, trailer park fare really.
On Saturday the kids and I drove home. I unpack, washed, cleaned, repacked and headed back to town with Mr Chardy yesterday. We have a conference on today and tomorrow. So there you have it. Just a whole lot of driving and eating cheese with friends.
Oh just one question. On the way to town yesterday we stopped at the Camooweal Roadhouse for a coffee and I was having a quick read of the Women’s Day. Is it true – is Prince Harry and Megan really getting married. And while we are at it is Kate and Will’s really having twins? Have I been living under a rock, is this really happening? I need to know because it is obviously very important.
So what’s been happening in your world?
Are you a lover or hater of blue cheese? I have taken quite a liking to Blue Castello.
