Back home again

Heres a few pictures from our time away - but because I always forget Blogger loads them backwards they aren't in the order I wanted them lol but never mind.
Last 2 show a couple of canoing events at the Australsian Masters Games in Adelaide. This took up the first week away as DH was officiating along with a couple of friends. They weren't the only officials, there were quite a few there but they had a good time as I enjoyed the days there as well.
Very windy and chilly so I was glad that at the last minute I put in some 'heavy weight' clothing along with some lighter stuff.
Went for a few walks down at West Lakes and also on the seafront where it really blew the cobwebs out of my head; each day of competition we (myself and the wife of one of the fellas) took hot coffee down for them and ended up drinking most of it ourselves as we were so cold. :)
I was told the white house with the shutters on the ground floor belongs to Lleyton Hewitt - the shutters are the front for a full length gymnasium and as they weren't up he wasn't home :(
We drove to Mildura via Morgan and took the little punt over the river - one of the few remaining ones on the Murray - Theres another one at Tailem Bend and also at Mannum. I love seeing the cars and everything else drive on and make their way precariously across and the drive off on the other side.
Great value for the traveller as they are free and are open 24hrs - someone is on duty all the time and it saves miles of travel not having to find a bridge. We stayed in a caravan park right on the river and with all the school hols over it was so quiet there. The weather was fabulous but still very windy and I just didn't want to come home lol.
I have a few busy days coming up so may not be back here till next week.

Short and sweet this evening

Its been a busy 2 weeks - so haven't been on the computer much. Lots of 'things' took precedence over blogging and as we are going interstate on Sunday morning I think this will be it for a couple of weeks or more.

I have just got in from meeting up with some of the children for a little birthday get together at a pub close by. I'll be in Adelaide next week and won't get to see them on my special day so we had a meal at Daisey's in Ringwood.

I came home complete with my new project - a Can o Worms.

A while ago I happened to mention to one of the girls about seeing mice around the compost heap and that I didn't think I'd put any vegetable peelings out this summer as that may be the cause. That I was thinking of starting a worm farm to use all of that up and lo and behold thats what she carried into the Bistro lol And then with lots of smailes one of the boys gave me a gift voucher for Bunnings so I'll be able to get my first lot of worms when we get back into town in a couple of weeks.

Rhonda at Down to Earth had a good post recently about starting a worm farm so I'll be spending some time reading it when we get home.

After we leave Adelaide we are going to take another week and drive home via the Riverland and spend some time in Mildura - up on the big River Murray.
