Life is Really Good

February 1, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Back from a few pleasant days with MPS and partner in Warrnambool.  Will post some pics later.

You have probably gathered that the summer holidays are over and the kiddies go back to school today.  Yippee, life returns to normal and we have the place to ourselves again.  We drove past the Spit camping ground yesterday on the way home and it’s completely empty as they have to be out come the end of January.  Usually, some stragglers have to be prized out but they all got the message this year. 

We have a bit of work to do around the place this week but we’ll be off in the camper soon and visit some lonely, secluded spot to enjoy the peace and tranquillity that this country has to offer.  We have to visit the travel agent today and get our China Bike ride in October organised.  We were going to use our Qantas Frequent Flyer points but flight schedules get messy and it means coming through Sydney airport and that’s a nightmare.  Hence, we’ll go with Cathay Pacific and spend a few pleasant days in one of our favourite cities, Hong Kong.

We’re just about to head out the door this fine morning for a run finishing at the beach for a swim.  It so happens we pass the local primary school around 9am and the kids heading to school are usually puzzled but two old codgers high fiveing one another as the pass this fine seat of learning.  MP for one is delighted as this starts her 3rd year away from the edukachon establishment. 

Cruel aren’t we!

    Eighteen days peddling your arses up and down the China countryside, you’re a better man than me! Is the $3,490.00 price for a couple or just one of you?

    I’m certainly a better man than you! 😀 It’s actually only 9 days cycling and the rest is seeing some of the sights of China like the Terracotta Warriors and that Big Wall. The price is each but a bit cheaper than that as it’s come down a couple of hundred because our dollar is so strong at the moment and we get a $100 off each for being frequent travellers with the company.

    The China bike trip sounds like fun! I didn’t fancy your trip to Tibet but THIS trip . . . . .I wish I could go along!

    I’m not sure there would be much opportunity for diving on this trip. 🙂

    Thank God. No Pictures of me in my PJs and gumboots

    Yet! I was actually going to ask you if I could use the photos of your house but I’d leave the PJ’s one out of it. It would show them we all don’t live in lean-to’s!
