It’s school holidays, and as I’ve mentioned yesterday, we’ve been crazy busy at the moment. We’ve been doing a lot of house hunting and excitingly, have made a deposit on a beautiful place.
Our move will involve changing towns, which will mean we won’t feel so isolated or bored. I will also have my scenic walks I’ve missed for so long! We’ve made two trips to the town our new home is in, and on the way home the second time, we stopped in at Gundagai. We live so close to this town, but hadn’t yet paid a visit to the dog on the tuckerbox!
My clenched teeth in this shot should give you some idea of how freezing it was! Our kids didn’t seem bothered by it at all.
At the tuckerbox tourist stop, was this little apple stand. It had no-one serving. In place of a human, was this sign. It’s a bit like those self-service checkouts at Woollies, but with more of an honesty system.
In my best Steve Irwin impression, would you take a look at the size of these fellas??
These apples were insanely cold, juicier than should be allowed and the sweetest and freshest we’ve ever tasted. Our kids greedily clutched them to their mouths in the car and devoured like their lives depended on it.
As for the house we’ve bought? Well, you’ll just have to wait and see, won’t you? Also, in other news, I need to brag for a moment. Missy 11 recently was given an offer into a selective school! Very proud to say that she got in 100% on her own merits, there was no tutoring, no hothousing, no Tiger Mom-ming. She did do a minimal amount of practice exams, though. So proud of her and everything she’s acheived over the last 11 years.
