So i'm back in St Ives, again, these school holidays. Have i ever mentioned my home town before?? I love it here, leafy, quiet, family, shopping, space, restaurants . . . i do love visiting Sydney. On the way up the Hume Highway last night, we climbed inside the world's largest Merino in Goulburn & left with obligitory snow dome. Check out that late afternoon Spring sky!!
you can only climb half way now, this was met with much disappointment
lots of giggles at Rambo's giant concrete testicles
Today i took the boy to IKEA for new bookcases, side tables, desk lamps, bins & round rugs for those bedroom makeovers. He was brilliant, adding up prices, making suggestions, testing out chairs, pretending to use the toilets in the display bathrooms (that will turn you grey i assure you) & by the end, he had a lie-down-silent-protest (the best kind of demonstration of anti consumerism a boy can do). He came alive again at the self serve check out - shooting that beeper gun at all the barcodes, brilliant stuff, speedy, simple, love EFTPOS efficiency!!
So tomorrow my husband will meet us in Sydney (yahoo) for dinner, ahhhh, on his way back from Brisbane with his Jeep & i'm kind of hoping he'll take a child or 3, a side table or 3, a desk lamp or 3 . . . those bookcases require 3 rows, ooppss. We could drive home with our heads to one side?? Non?? I love travelling with the children, they are my company & i don't know how to work the iPod in those 'radio dead zones' without them, so i might keep a few for conversation value.
I've never driven in convoy before, i expect to be assessed. Handsome soldier is a professional driver of all things from scooters to tanks!! It's only 3 hours & with the promise of finishing off the childrens' bedrooms (their furniture has arrived while i'm not there) we have things to do before school resumes Monday morning so we're heading off early. Have lovely weekends, love Posie
