The Best Surprise Ever

Sorry I have been very quiet on here! But I was very busy keeping a secret from my family. A few people knew my secret, and the weekend was a success and so much fun, I am so very grateful for my boys! My second son made my Delayed Mothers Day Gift – the best ever this year, with a trip from Brisbane to Sydney possible to attend my Oldest Woody Son’s Surprise 21st Birthday Party.

At first we both thought that we {David and I} would be missing out on our Oldest Son’s Surprise 21st Birthday Party and I was so very upset that I wasn’t going to be there for the big event. And I had tried many different ways to make it possible for us all to go but with Studying, David’s working and not having anyone to look after our younger two the best solution was for me to fly down for the weekend, and spend it with family.

Cataract Dam New South Wales

Yep I am still trying to catch up on our travels down in New South Wales with a trip that we had to Cataract Dam! Oh gosh I so miss Wollongong, we got to see so much while down there. Can’t wait to be able to catch up on our travels from our Campervan travels {a few days before Xmas we left our motorhome in storage and traveled all through NSW – QLD sleeping in our Campervan/Tents and loved every minute of it! Best moments ever, and can’t wait to experience more.

Cataract Dam New South Wales, a day where I spent it with family to say goodbye to them before we left the area. One where our boys got to spend it with their cousin and uncles – it was a great day! And I am so glad I have photos from the day, all of our boys will have the memories to look back on.

Melbourne Has A Piece Of My Heart

Melbourne Has A Piece Of My Heart

Melbourne is one of our all time favorite cities, and one we love to visit. Its a special place – its the City where our Two Oldest Son’s went to for basic Navy Training. Its the place where both boys made all of their family super proud with their Navy graduations – oh gosh do my Boys Look good in Navy Uniforms.

And its also where “World Vision” head office is – a place that is very very special to our hearts.

Yes we love Melbourne and we will always will. Even though we haven’t been there since our second son’s navy graduation we can’t wait to get back there.

Its My Bus And I Am Going To Cry If I Want To

Normally I am the strong one in our family – The One Who Has To Hold The Shit Together when its hitting the fan. The one who finds solutions when there is an issue to deal with, the one who looks at the bigger picture and finds answers that will work.

Yesterday, My cup was empty, and there was nothing to refill it back up.

Well Friday I didn’t. I didn’t hold it together at all. Its My Bus And I Am Going To Cry If I Want To !!! You see I had unpacked our Campervan stuff back into our Motorhome Monday morning. I had packed up our Motorhome for a trip north – we were going to head out on the road either Wednesday or Thursday.

We Have Traveled Even Though We Get Told We Never Do

We Have Traveled Even Though We Get Told We Never Do

*** For all of our loyal friends, family, readers, followers thanking you for being so very kind to us, and stopping in here to read our blog posts. Even though we haven’t blogged on New Life on the Road for the last month or so, our posts are still being read. For all of those new, welcome to our way of living ****

These Are The Things That Piss Me Off ::

We have been told {and have heard others say about us} “Oh you don’t even travel”

I guess we fly from place to place then?

or we get this one {regularly} “So when are you going to get on the road”

{S**T Don’t say that one to me anymore…cause gee what more can I say? We don’t have a fixed address?? We are on the road to somewhere all of the time}

Macadamia Castle

With our crazy travels from Wollongong to Queensland – after our Bedford Comair Motorhome broke down – we were all staving by the time Breakfast came around! And then we seen a Sign “Pancakes at Macadamia Castle”. Actually Nicholas had seen the sign 120k’s {on the side of the road} for the Castle Breaky and wouldn’t let us stop anywhere along the way.

He was keen to try the Pancakes and I was keen to see the Castle, it was on my “must see” list from when we went past it last time, yet I couldn’t remember where I had seen it but just wanted to make sure I didn’t miss it this time.

Camp Quality Convoy

I know that this was AGES ago, and we are no longer in the Wollongong area but I was looking through our great photos from Camp Quality Convoy day and I remembered that I hadn’t shared it here on our New Life on the Road blog.

Considering we have SO much to share about our travels from the Illawarra area to Bundaberg QLD to back down the Sunshine Coast area, and considering we have power for the time being {will share more soon about where we are} I am going to try and finish up our wonderful travels in New South Wales so that I can start sharing our more recent travels.

Camp Quality Convoy 2014 was huge, way bigger in support then 2013, and I reckon that 2015 will be even a bigger year. And the support is really important because the Children in the area benefit from the fundraiser.

Wollongong Was The Best Location For Travel

I am looking through our Photos from the last two years and I have to say that we were so very lucky to be staying in Wollongong! Its almost like we lived in the Best Kept Secret city ever.

Actually I think that Wollongong Was The Best Location For Travel for all those who live in Australia. Its ideal location means that you can be in Sydney within 1 1/2 hours. Or be down South to Kiama, Gerringong, Berry, Nowra, Basin View, Ulladulla, Eden, or even as far as Mogo <——– the Place we started our journey!

Then you can drive up to Robertson, Kangaroo Valley, Mose Vale, Bowral, Mittagong, Thirlmere, Picton, Appin, Thirroul, Shellharbour, Albion Park – so many locations, so many wonderful places to explore.

Nan Tien Temple Wollongong

Yeah I am still posting from when we visited places in Wollongong NSW even though we are now in Queensland! But I haven’t got the best internet connection here, a lot has happened and I still have so many amazing places that I want to share before I start sharing our trips from another state.

Did you know that connection here is that bad that it takes soooo long to upload anything, so long for facebook to work and so long for my emails to open up. So I haven’t even been online much cause I would rather spend time in the pool with my boys, or reading a good book.

Oh and I have pulled some serious tummy muscles lifting up boxes in our Shipping Container, so very sore – its feels like I have ripped tissue on the left of my body – in the inside. Not been this sore ever so I am taking it easy today.

But I thought I must share our trip to Nan Tien Temple Wollongong before I share our Macadamia Castle Trip……and I loved re-looking at all the photos from our visit.

Last Sunday I took Cameron and Kyle into Sydney for the day. It was meant to be the day before we left Wollongong but that was a week ago and we are still here…..I don’t really want to go into that at the moment cause we are still here and have no idea how we are going to make it to David’s parents place in time for Xmas! Yeah fingers are crossed that by the time you are reading this we have left other wise we are going to have to grow wings on our Motorhome so that we can fly there!
