Hello everyone! I haven't been around much lately, sorry about that. I've been in a kind of funk since getting back home. Hubby has gone back to work with a vengeance and he has been working long hours. Hes loving every minute of it!
I've been home trying to get back into a routine. I've had a big crash and been in pain but I'm slowly getting better.
I hooe to catch up with you all in the nest few days. I have got some news that did through me, I will share as soon as I get confirmation and a few more details.
Just another chapter of my life closing, hopefully to allow an opening of a new and exciting one. Hope you are all happy and healthy.
See ya

bitch of the day

This morning I decided to head off into cranbourne to get the new huger games DVD .  Wasn't very crowded and I quickly found the DVD and a few $5.00 tops, hey you cant go past a bargain!
I headed to the check out and low and behold there was only one very slow boy working the registers.
Now they have those new self serve registers but I really don't like to use them as they take away jobs. But this poor boy had a line of about 5 people before I got there and he was looking very flustered.
Meanwhile all the self serve counters were empty. Looks like everyone else had the same idea as I did.
But after about 5 minutes waiting and the line not moving I admit I got sick of it and used the self serve check out.
I know I didn't do the cause much good but it would of taken me longer to wait to be served than it did to find a car park and get what I needed.
And this is what Kmart wanted to happen by only putting on one staff member to man the checkouts.
So what do you think should I have waited, what do you do?

Wet,Windy and Freezing Cold

this is all we have seen since coming home, Rain, rain and more rain. I am so over this rain.
there is mud everywhere and my driveway is full of water I have to swim to get to my car. Its taken till today to empty the van and that was with the help of hubby and his brother today!
There are huge weeds in all my gardens and we cant even mow as the backyard is like a swamp.
Its so bitterly cold and the winds are blustery.
Have I sooked enough? I hope you all have better weather where you are.
Stay warm and dry melbourne, I dont see it ending soon.
see ya

the final photos

 this is an exact replica of stonehenge that someone built in Esperance. Sue who has been to the real stonehenge said it just did not feel the same. It was amazing but it just looked too new. So one day I will go and see the real one in England.

 we saw some whales and their calfs, it was amazing how close to the shore they were. Right at the tip of the great australian bight, is the nursery for the southern right whales. They come here every year to give birth to their babies. I was very excited to see them but I would love to go on a cruise and get even closer. They have them down in tassie so next time Im down there I will book and hopefully get even closer photos to share with you all.
So that was the great holiday we have been planning for as long as we have been married. it was better than I even imagined and I have the bug. As soon as our van has been back to the manufacturers to get all its issues ironed out we will be planning the next trip. There is still so much of this great country of ours to see and experience

The road home

It's a chilly 5 degrees outside and I'm waiting for the kettle to boil for my morning tea. We are approx 8.5 hours away from home. We should really be on the road already but neither of us is in any hurry. I'm really not ready to get home and face reality yet, but I suppose I can't run away forever. This is the first holiday that I'm not in a hurry to get home from ever! I have really loved just going with the flow and not knowing what each day will bring. Most days I didn't even know what day it was!
But anyway for good or bad tonight I will be sleeping in my own bed at home. That's gotta be good right?
See ya

Good morning everyone. I am currently at the nullabour road hour. We stayed here last night and by god it was cold! My flash sticky thing, tec term that one, has run out so I won't be able to post pics till I get home now. Should be in about five days we think. Yesterday we stopped on the road  so I could look at the great Australian bight, and we saw a whale. So I'm hopeing that today in ceduna we see some and I will be close enough to get some shots for you. Hope your all well, I'm not really ready to go home yet but I suppose I better go back to reality.
See ya
