Lions Park North Bundaberg

After having Our Motorhome back with us, and both David and I busy for the last two days getting her back into ship shape we all decided it was time to get out and about for some much needed down time.

You see we haven’t had our motorhome with us for the last 8 months and while she was locked up the mold had hit the curtains, the dirt was every where and David’s greasy finger marks were over lots of cupboards.

So between us we have washed the floors, washed the curtains, washed the bedding, washed the cupboards, sorted out our boys clothes and put them back in their wardrobes. And David completely took everything out of the Kitchen cupboards and de-cluttered it all – and put back the New Ingredients that he now cooks with. Seen as how we are now Gluten Free and mostly sugar free we have different herbs/flour/spices and food sources that he cooks with!

Our Motorhome Is Back

We have tried to have Our Motorhome back with us {since December it has been stored}. Not sure if any of our friends realised but David went down to Sydney a few months ago to replace the Fuel Injector Pump with the one that was always in the Bus – it had been rebuilt a few times and cost over $2000,00 {I think it was closer to $3000.00} but was still not working.

When he went down {a few months back} and fitted the Injector back into the Motorhome she was still making a weird noise, and he was not sure if the problem was fixed. But decided to see if he could bring her home and hit the highway. But soon realised that there was an issue and so he had returned back to the Storage Facility.

6 Things You Need for a Weekend Camping Trip

If you’re off on a camping adventure, the equipment you require will depend on where you are going, the type of activities you want to do, the season of the year and the length of your camping stay. For a weekend camping trip, here are six of the most useful and important things to take with you.

First Aid Kit

Naturally you are hopeful that no injuries will be sustained and no illness experienced, but a well-equipped first aid kit is a must on any camping trip. Make sure your kit contains bandages, band aids, antihistamine medication, paracetamol or other pain-relieving medication, a thermometer (housed in a hard case) and anti-nausea and diarrhoea relieving medication.

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yesterday I had that craving that you get once a month {being a girl and all – sorry for TMI} and I was in desperate need of a Chocolate Fix. If David was here I would have had him making our Favorite – Avocado Chocolate Coconut Mousse and if we had Avocado in the fridge I would have tried to make it myself. Instead I broke my No Sugar Rule and went for the naughty Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies. And it worked! I got my fix.

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies ::

Recipe ::

125gram Butter

3/4 Cup of Organic Raw Honey {it was actually too much honey so next time I am going to try less}

1 egg

1 3/4 Cups of Gluten Free Plain Flour

2 Teaspoons of Cream of Tartar

1 Teaspoons of Bicarbonate Soda

250grams Packet Nestle Bakers Choice Choc Bits Milk

Method ::

  1. Use A Electric Mixer and beat the Butter and Honey until pale and creamy.
  2. Add egg until just combined
  3. Stir Flour, Cream of Tartar and Bicarbonate Soda together and then add to the Butter/Honey/Egg Mixture {Mix gently with a wooden spoon}
  4. Add the Choc Bits until well mixed {mix gently with a wooden spoon}
  5. Spoon onto a Baking Tray {I use Baking Paper to save on them sticking and washing up}
  6. Cook in the oven on low heat {about 150-160 Degress} for as long as needed. About 20 minutes – they are golden brown and will firm up on a Cooling Tray.
  7. Try and keep them somewhere safe – out of your reach and kids reach!!}
  8. They are the best cookies ever

Going to try them with other Ingredients to make them more healthier – Will let you know how I go – instead of Choc Bits I am going to try Passionfruit next time!

New Life on the Road

Love On Bruce Highway Gympie

As we have been driving back and forwards for weeks on end for Family reasons…..actually it was about two months of lots of driving from the Sunshine Coast and back up north…I have driven past Hell Town Hotrods so many times {one day I will stop to check out that amazing place} and we have seen the Love Heart across the road from Hell Town Hotrods but I haven’t been able to pull over to grab a picture.

Until Friday!!! I seen the Love on Bruce Highway Gympie in time for me to actually pull over safely, jump out of our Campervan and grab a pic or two! The farmer in the paddock has my heart….

Smiths Crossing Fishing On Fathers Day

On Fathers Day we were able to celebrate the day with both David and his Dad! It was special even though all of our boys were not able to be with us {insert sad face here!!}

And we wanted to all get out of David’s parents house so we headed to Smiths Crossing Fishing on Fathers Day was the general idea- which by the way is no longer a crossing – the last floods 2 years ago destroyed the bridge that badly that the council decided it was not worth trying to fix it. So the people on the other side of the creek can no longer meet the School bus in the mornings or the afternoons and have to find another way home.

As soon as we got out of the car our baby {who will always be my baby even though he is now 10} ran off down to the creek with his fishing rod and tackle kit. He lives for fishing!

Whale Watching Mooloolaba

Today we crossed a Bucket List Adventure off. We have always wanted to see the Whales and have come close to booking many times over the years but sometimes plans change. Today nothing was stopping us from keeping our booking with Whale Watching Mooloolaba, even after seeing the AIDA Opera at Moncrieff theater very late last night, and then having to be on the road by 7.00am this morning, to be back in time was not going to stop us!

We are all exhausted and hope to be in bed early, but I thought I would quickly have a look through the pictures that we got of a Mama and her baby Whale. Mind you the pictures can never ever capture the moment of when the baby came so very close to the Boat, so close that you could see its eye!

Plans What Plans

Luckily for us we have grown used to being very flexible with life, with choices and with what we are doing – where we are at any given time and with plans….cause plans can change, and do change at the drop of a hat! We sure realised that these past few week.

Plans What Plans  – when you live out of a suitcase and in a Holiday Apartment and have no idea what/where/when you will be next, you have to learn to be very flexible.

And go with the flow…..

Australia Zoo

When we lived in Glasshouse Mountains {many moons ago!} we used to have a Family Pass to Australia Zoo – where I could take our boys for a few hours whenever we wanted, and see “More” of each section of the Zoo without the pressure of rushing from one spot to another.

Now that we are here on the Sunshine Coast I was thinking about what we could do because we have really seen most of this area already – and so one thing lead to another and we now have yearly passes once again. This is our Family very early Christmas Present to our boys! And to us parents – we love exploring the Australia Zoo as much as they do.

On Friday {last week} David came home from work and we rushed out the door to activate our passes and to check out the new sections that we hadn’t seen. As soon as we got there we jumped onto the Zoo Train to take us to the “African” section and “Bindi Island”. We also wanted to catch the crocosuem crocodile show but for some reason it wasn’t on at 2.30pm – it was at one of the smaller Crocodile enclosures which we decided there was too many people for us to see anything.
