When I was younger my Grandmother took me most weekends, and I got to stay at her place. She lived closer to Sydney then what we did, and we easily caught the train in on numerous occasions. Looking back my late Grandma was one groovy lady – she was into every club you could think! As a member, or part of the community within the club – be it a club for protecting the trees, or the parks, or even bush walking! So the other day I was talking with my boys and we did A Trip Down Memory Lane!
Thinking Back In Time
I love talking about when my boys were little babies! The amazing stories we have to share about their sleep habits, and what there favorite toys were, and how they would sleep (or not sleep) when I was super tired! One of the best memories I like to talk about is how wonderful my Grandmother was. Actually I am proud to announce that our Motorhome “Rose – The Lifestyle Challenge Bus” reminds me of my Grandmother as Yellow Roses are her favorite flower.
A Favorite Place To Visit
While I was spending time with my Grandmother we went to some gorgeous places. I even went bush walking when she was with one of her groups! Gosh can I remember that time……it was a full on bush-walk. It was in and out of hills, up and down, and was about a 4 hour walk. Halfway through my Grandmother slipped and twisted her ankle underneath her. As soon as she fell we all knew it was going to be one of those “Oh No, What Now” situations. It took four men, three hours of carrying my Grandmother to a house that was in the middle of no-where. There was no car access, it was in the middle of the bush! There wasn’t even a phone in the house.
The Boat To The Rescue
Luckily someone had a mobile phone and the ambulance was called – and was waiting for us across the water! There was a boat that was moored on the other side. Once the boat was alerted to the emergency it was a matter of time before my Grandmother was picked up and taken to the waiting ambulance. After she was settled into the emergency ward of the small country hospital, it was a waiting game. She had to be transferred to a bigger hospital, and I had to be taken home! Gosh that was a huge Trip down memory lane as this was a very long time ago! The beauty of this story was that I was driven home, and my Grandma was being taken care of.
Another Time Another Story
There were many moments that I have as memories with my Grandmother. Beautiful memories that I will always treasure. Lucky for us our five boys are spending time with their Grandparents and will have memories that they too can treasure. One of my favorite memories is going to the Parks in Sydney. Again my Grandmother was members of different clubs that looked after parks so there were many weekends where we spent a whole day walking around Park Lands, or even helping out with different aspects of the club that she was associated with. I remember riding my bike through the biggest Parks in Sydney. It was a new bike, but my Grandmother wanted a turn! Gosh that was a sight to see – it was so funny….even she was laughing! I used to have a photo of that day but I am not sure where that is anymore. Lucky I have that memory to treasure and can share it with A Trip Down Memory Lane.
