An Adelaide kind of weekend.

Thursday morning, bright and early, a few of my children and I went for a drive to Adelaide. Last time I made the drive (two weeks ago, maybe three?) we dubbed it "National Roadworks Day". And this trip was just the same. Another "National Roadworks Day", possibly with more trucks thrown in. (Not sure whether there really were more trucks or whether I just imagined it because so much of country Australia is flooded it makes sense that there were more trucks on my bit of unflooded country road.) I came to bring Miss 19's furniture because she and Mrs 27 and family have just moved house. So once we got here and unloaded the trailer it was all pack, pack and then truck and trailer and moving. I much prefer sewing!

We have a few more days here which will include a lot of unpacking, some cleaning and a touch of organising. And then there will be another long drive and another "National Roadworks Day" undoubtably. (They didn't look close to finishing any of those roadworks!) Until then I am admiring my grandchildren and helping my daughters. Should be a fun visit!

You certainly picked the right weekend for it, beautiful weather here.

The helping moving stuff is just a means to an end to enjoy the fun stuff- ie spending time with family and those gorgeous little grandchildren.

Enjoy!

Moving going on here as well......well when I came home last night two adults and one dog had moved in.....that will teach me for going out and having fun and coming home late ..... Of course this is only temporary until two of the three fly overseas in a few weeks time....the dog is off to her "foster home" nearby.....I am taking the opportunity to take off for a couple of weeks holiday .....driving......my holiday plans are fluid though and are dependent on floods in various parts of the country....but I am adaptable!
