Favourite Daughter's Visit
back to Adelaide VERY early on Tuesday morning, we stayed at Warrens
which is only about 40 minutes from the Brisbane Airport but we still
had to be up at 3.45 am to be sure of getting there in time.
Please click on photos to enbiggen.
You will recognize this photo as my current header photo, it was taken at
Mt Tambourine about 10 years ago.
Same girl, same mountain, same fence but without the pretty flower boxes last Monday,
we had a little trouble finding the spot but in the original one Vicki is holding a teddy
bear from "Teddies at Tambourine" and the business is still right there
Its hard to know just where to start with the week that flew past but we did achieve
a lot.... starting out with buying a new car... I really loved my Hyundai i30 as I've
said before but the local Hyundai people made me an offer I couldn't resist on an
upgrade to a "Sonata" which in the Hyundai range is their luxury 4 door sedan, it has
the same diesel motor and auto transmission that I loved in the i30 and an absolute
host of features for quiet comfortable motoring, so long story short we bought one!!!
Of course we had to go for a test drive, so in the next 4 days we did about 1000 km
(600 miles) visited some friends and saw some lovely scenery.
Here is Vicki standing beside the Golden beast (which Hyundai describe as silky beige)
at the nearby town of Maryborough.
We had some great meals, all within Vicki's fairly rigid dietary rules, and I'm very
pleased to report that her health is excellent, the change over the last 12 months is
nothing short of miraculous, that's not to say that she doesn't still have some issues
but compared with the state she was in last Christmas she is great.
