How good is this?????? I’m home!!
I’m so happy. I had a
great time on the big road trip but … crikey …. It’s good to be home. My own
bed …. My own lounge … my own stuffie toys …. My own BEACH ….. AND …. Joy of
joys …. It’s warm! I can go to bed naked again. How good is that??? It took a while to
thaw out but I’m all thawed now. The little girls are coming over tomorrow and I’m
going to see the little boys on the weekend. Crikey, I’ve missed them. Remember
all those pretty party dresses Mum and Dad bought for the little girls. Well …..
they’ll be getting all dressed up in them tomorrow. Bet you can’t wait to see
those piccies, aye?? But right now I have
to finish off my road trip adventures for you. So here goes.
|My VERY own front door ...... Yaaaaay!!!
|My Jetty. When Harri was away for a road trip he would always pee on the jetty post when he got home. Me .... I just eat the duck poop!!
|Looking back the other way! No flowers or autumn leaves here, aye??? Just palm trees and blue sky and it's WARM!!!!!!!!
The day after the worst day of my life was a bit better but not much. When I woke up it was raining. Big time rain and cold, cold rain. It was still blowing a gale too. Crikey …. Another shocking day. Dad decided it would be too much at the festival for me so he went by himself and Mum and I went for a drive around the little country roads hoping it would stop raining long enough to go for a walk or two. All this was ok by me. I sure didn’t want to be frozen solid again and I also didn’t want to be deafened again by BAGPIPES. It did stop raining for a bit and Mum and I did get to have a bit of a walk but not much because we got a phone call from Dad to come and pick him up. You should have seen him. What a sight! He’d taken one of my snuggly blankets to keep himself a bit warm and he had it wrapped around his head. He also had on about 4 T-shirts and a big coat thing and the ugliest beanie you’ve ever seen. He was sooooooooo cold. He reckoned he’d never recover. Shame Mum didn’t get a photo of him, aye? Most of the festival had been cancelled because of the bad weather. Can’t say I was disappointed! There was going to be a free concert INDOORS that night to make up for the cancellations and Mum and Dad decided to go to it. I WASN’T allowed. THEY LEFT ME IN THE CAR!!! In the FREEZING COLD car. Fair dinkum …. Talk about neglect! Well ….. I can’t really complain. I’ve got those two just where I want them. Listen to this. We went back to our cottage before heading off to the concert. Mum and Dad got 3 hot water bottles and filled them up. They put not one, but two, coats on me and they took 3 of my snuggly blankets to wrap around me. They also took a thermos of hot water to refill my hot water bottles at half time. See ….. told you I had them where I wanted them. BUT the best part …. Dad came out about every 20 minutes or so and fed me a chicken neck or two. I LOVE chicken necks. They are my very favourite things in the whole world. Am I spoilt or what??? I was as happy as a pig in mud. I was warm …. I didn’t have to listen to all that noise ….. it was quiet. Well not real quiet! I could still hear the bagpipes. Just not at a trillion decibels. Guess what?? I didn’t mind the sound of them. They are quite nice from a distance. Mum and Dad really enjoyed the concert. They were warm and so was I. The trip back to our cottage was a bit eventful. Lots of Roos!! Mum was driving and Dad was Roo spotter. We didn’t hit any, thank goodness!! They can make an awful mess of the car. Not to mention what they can do to themselves.
The next morning we were all up early. We were heading for home and it was a very long drive. We could have stayed another day but I think we were all feeling the need for a bit of home comfort. Would you believe it was a beautiful sunny day. Still cold but a beautiful day non the less. What a shame it hadn’t been like that for the festival. Two of Mum’s favourite festivals ruined by bad weather. Well ….. them’s the breaks, I guess. Even though it was a long day of driving we had a good time. We stopped a lot so didn’t get home till quite late. The weather was good and the countryside was VERY beautiful and we were warm. What more could we ask for!
|Dad wouldn't stop to take photos except for this once!!
|Mum likes rocks so he had to stop, aye??
Wanna run .... Love, Charlie.
