I've successfully found my way to Shannon and Neil's place perched on top of a hill in the beautiful Gippsland country side. The green rolling hills, patches of forest, wandering livestock, narrow windy roads and stunning views make this a very pituresque place to be. If only it wasn't so cold it would be almost perfect!
Roadkill is not uncommon in Australia but I saw something unusual on the way here, a dead wombat. They are a rarity in WA but more common on this side of the country. Sadly this one was too slow and paid the price.
Shannon was home with the 2 youngest kids, Isaac and Samuel, but has now gone to pick up the other three, Alexandra, Eli and Abbey from school and Neil from Leongatha so I'm looking after myself until they return.
Naturally I turned to the blog to fill in some time.
I heard from Carolyn that my parcel has arrived at home and they have divided the spoils up between them, with Sophie laying claim to the Geelong Hoodie and Fashion Boy "wrapped" in his new Route 66 belt buckle.
I was browsing in the shops at Leongatha this morning and found some items I thought might interest Dad so I've sent off another parcel to Holties House. (I'll pick up The Duke for you when I get back to Geelong next week Pop.)
I'll return to Auntie Ev and Uncle Ken's for the night then go and visit Kerrie and Warren tomorrow before heading back to Melbourne for the footy, Geelong v the Western Bulldogs at Docklands. Hopefully they'll make it 3 from 3 for my trip. In a lovely bit of timing Geelong travel to Perth next week to play the Dockers so I'll get to see them 4 weeks in a row, something that hasn't happened since my childhood, if ever!
