Our Holiday – Part Three: the way home.

At the end of the Onslow driveway – left to where we used to live, or right towards home? So, after 10 days of living in the in-laws pockets we are on our way home. With the in-laws. Yep. They had to drive down to Perth and so we coordinated this part of our trip to piggy back down the coast with them. My poor Mother-in-law. She left the accommodation up to me and I married her son…. Who is a tight arse and wouldnt let me book anywhere good.  So you saw her house and all her pretties...

Our Holiday – Part Two – 10 days in Onslow.

So Day one at Onslow we hit the beach. My boys have only ever seen the beach once, last November so this was a novelty and they both adored it! Master J was a little hesitant of the water to start with and clung to his bucket and spade on the beach but G Man happily frolicked on the shore and wasnt interested much in making sandcastles. Above are some of the special effects our camera does – pretty speccy huh? The salt jetty is long and makes for a pretty awesome backdrop Day 2 we went out...

Our Holiday – Part One: from Home to the in-laws place.

   See the pin that says A?? That’s where we live. In Cranbrook, WA, population: approx 600. Now pin B is where hubby’s parents live, Onslow, WA population: approx 700. Distance between is just over 1700km according to google maps. I’m not sure when the fairy of insanity visited us and put the idea of a massive road trip with two small children on the cards when we were actually planning a cruise to Bali instead but visit she did, and off we went in early August for three whole weeks! The Adventra was packed to the rafters with the Two...

I'll give you a dollar if you can find my keys.

So, Mr Point Five got home on Saturday after being away for a week and he had to start work this morning at 6am.  Dum da dum daaaaa – cant find his work keys which he SWEARS he left at home for the week and is absolutely positive Master J has “relocated” them whilst he was away.   Slight bit of guilt on my behalf as it would therefore have happened on “my watch”. Fairly important and will cost us over $1000 to replace them plus a massive amount of paperwork and headaches so my number one task today was to FIND them!  Sigh. ...

Whilst the Cat's away…….

So, anyone who follows me on facebook will know that Mr Point Five has gone away for two nights, three days for his work.  Five years ago I would have been devastated (we would have still been in our first year of courtship, you know all the lovey dovey stuff “how will I survive without sharing your air”? etc etc barf barf.) but five years and two children later I have discovered that there are some perks to having hubby away. 1. You get to drift off to sleep with no snoring monster next to you, who is as hot as...
