First stop on our “Big Camping Trip” was Boreen Point Campground. We had a lovely few days there catching up with old friends. Walks on the lakeside beach, shared meals and a spot of fishing made for a pretty relaxed time. Then we headed up to Inskip Point for an overnighter before catching the ferry… Continue reading Camping Ketchups
Cotton litters the roadside from Moree to Lightning Ridge. Emus abound. There’s even an enormous sculpture of an Emu made from scrap, including an old VW Bug, just before Lightning Ridge. I must admit, I was skeptical as to what would be on offer in Lightning Ridge… Happily proven wrong, we could’ve spent longer than… Continue reading Expect the Unexpected
A big part of our #familytravellingadventure is having the opportunity to borrow my Father in Laws setup. We have Clyde the (Land)cruiser and Bonnie the campervan. These two have been around the country before so we’re pretty confident they’ll serve us well! Give us a wave on the road or come and say hi if… Continue reading Bonnie and Clyde

It really was a fantastic holiday with highlights including Mr 3 giving his little… Continue reading What will 2017 bring?
We’ve all done it. Commented on someone’s pregnancy in what we thought was a fairly innocuous way, or, gasp, some have made the disastrous faux pas of congratulating someone incorrectly. Now there’s a pregnant pause… So, what is it about pregnancy comments? Honestly, the best policy is just follow the pregnant person’s lead. And in… Continue reading To comment or not to comment…
Working at home with the kid(s). Sounds good in theory doesn’t it? Manage your own hours, be your own boss, start an empire… Then all those lofty ambitions come crashing down when you realise you do have a boss. A very demanding, needy, bossy (and lovable) boss: your child(ren). Not to mention the countless distractions… Continue reading WAHM Life Rollercoaster
