We finished babysitting Remi and Millie and left Jane's house to stay by ourselves for a few days before heading home. Vivid Sydney was on and Mum and Dad really wanted to see it. They went about six years ago when it first started and it was a very BIG let down. Just a few building lit up and not very well at that but NOW .... OMD ..... talk about spectacular.The photos are not going to do it justice. Mum accidentally deleted them all.
|This is the only one not deleted of about 87 million Mum took of the opera house.|
|Funny how when you accidentally delete stuff you only get left with the dregs, aye??|
|Sorry .... they are getting worse. It was VIVID ...... honest!!|
|Crikey ...... it's getting worse!! Mmmmmmmm .... maybe you'd best google it, aye??|
The next night one of Mum and Dad's favourite groups was playing at a folk club in one of the suburbs of Sydney so off we went. I thought I was going to have to stay in the car while they went and enjoyed themselves but ...... NO!!!! surprise, surprise ..... I was allowed in. It was just a tiny venue. Only fifty people and 1 Whippet. How good was that?? I sat in the front row and, again, I was a big hit and EVER SO GOOD!!!!!!! The group playing was called the Wheeze and Suck Band and they are a group of older Pommie blokes, now living in Australia and they perform old Pommie songs. They are good too. A bit noisy for my ears but there was no amplification, like at some of the festivals we go to, so it wasn't too bad. The name of the folk club was The Loaded Dog so I was right at home. I had to perform too. After the concert EVERYONE wanted to take my photo. Oh well .... it wasn't too bad ..... I got lots of treats.
We headed for home the next day. We always stay overnight at the same B and B in Coffs Harbour. The owners of the B and B and Mum and Dad have become very good friends over the years and the last few times we have stayed there we have all had dinner together. They've got a dog called Jack and we get on great too. We laid in front of the open fire (OMD is that ever a luxury ..... we don't have THAT at our house cause it's never that cold).
|Crikey ...... the luxury!!|
|Jack sat under the table and tried to look half starved so he would get scraps. He didn't. I'm not allowed near the table so I sat in my bed by the fire. Crikey it was good.|
Wanna run ..... Love, Charlie.
