Not an especially exciting day. After a very windy and noisy night we all got up around 7am. We got packed up and headed over to the cafe for breakfast. We had hot chocolates since it was FREEZING.
I also had a croissant. Amy had bacon & eggs on toast. It was very nice. The girls enjoyed looking at the large shell collection.
After we’d eaten we met up with Nan & Pop and it was time to hit the road for our last day of driving. Pretty countryside. Loved the huge wind farm – I believe there are over 40 windmills.
Around 3.5 hours later we arrived in Perth and checked into our cabin (complete with toilet :-)). It’s very nice and large and we have a nice outlook over river type thing (not entirely sure what it is but it’s flowly with clean looking water).
We got unpacked and had some lunch – jaffles today as we all wanted something warm.
About 2.30pm we headed to the local supermarket to pick up some essentials – like chocolate and ice cream :-). We also went to a nearby Harvey Norman so Nan & Pop could get a new TV (their’s has no sound and they still have 4 weeks to go). The girls and I stayed in the car and read some magazines we’d just pick up.
Back at the van I started of load of washing and unpacked the groceries. CHristy worked on her diary for a bit…
and Amy snuggled in her bed reading….what a wonderful sight as I LOVE reading but she’s never really taken to it. She’s loving the book she’s reading though so I have hope.
Around 6pm I finally got all the washing finished in the dryer (lucky we are close to the laundry as I’ve been going back and forth a bit). Nan & Pop arrived for dinner. We’ve decided to eat here this week as we’ve got loads of room.
After dinner I printed up some photos for the girls diaries. It’s now 8pm and they have headed to bed (Christy to play her DS and Amy to read). I’m going to finish this post and play for a bit before going to bed. There is a hail/wind storm predicted for tonight and I’ve just started to hear some thunder. Shouldn’t be as noisy at it was night hopefully.
Oh, just discovered my bed has an electric blanket – yummy!
