Sometimes Its Okay To Quit

Many of you know that I have been doing a Diploma of Remedial Massage Therapy through a college in Brisbane. And by rights I should have graduated in June of 2016 and its now October 2016 and I have been slowly going through all the extra 16 subjects the college gave me, longing on every day to see if they have been marked off and waiting!

I have been waiting so long to graduate.

Bundaberg Community Garden

The other day we had time to spare, before both boys had to get their hair cuts. And I had seen the Bundaberg Community Garden from afar but hadn’t stopped to see it up close, so I thought why not make the time now!

Gavin Street has its own little community garden, and its so very sweet. They do have rules about taking only what you must, and leaving the rest to grow and share with others. Which makes sense – only take what you need to eat and leave the rest for others to have. I like the idea of feeding the community and sharing it around.

Sunset Massages Giving You A Free Massage

Some of you might know, some of you might not know! But I have a Business called “Sunset Massages” – haven’t really made it work in the last 12 months cause I haven’t had the time. Now I am making the time to turn this into a business and I want it to work.

Funny enough the only reason I am so focused and determined to make this work is because of the “Magnesium Oils” benefit that we have had with our family. We have tried LOTS of products over the years for all of our family – we have even been part of MLM companies with products that we have tried to work as a business {sorry family and friends!} but nothing really worked for us because we couldn’t see the benefits personally.

Life Is Like A Box Of Chocolates

Hello! Can you hear me now? Sorry. Hello. It’s me, I was wondering if after all these years ————-

I haven’t been on here writing from the heart for so very long. Life happens like that. You get busy, your a Mum, you always put everyone’s needs before your own, and you fall into the bed exhausted at the end of the day. And before you know it life has gone by and its been over a year since I wrote from the heart.  And your dreams feel like they are slipping away.

Sure I share our travel pictures and adventures. Which I love to do – we will always be seeking a new adventure, a new place to visit. And I escape as much as possible with as many trips as possible.

East Bundaberg Water Tower

On Saturday we had a tour booked with our Homeschooling friends – it was booked months ago, and I wasn’t even sure if we could actually make it because of things that have happened with David’s Mum….but I was keen to see the East Bundaberg Water Tower, and seen as how it was a tour and they don’t normally have it open to the public, even with our older boys home with us, we made sure to make it!

We actually took our third son Nicholas with us – Cameron decided he wanted to stay home – he is not keen to go out and about anymore so we are respecting those wishes. When he heard we also went to the Bert Hinkler House in the Botanical Gardens he was really disappointed that he didn’t come!

Norval Park Beach No Longer Camping

Awhile ago we went up to Norval Park Yandaran for the day and came across all of these Camping Spots along the beach. At the time I was thinking about how they all looked like there were some very permanent campers, and had to wonder how long they had been there.

Then there was an article in the news about the Turtle researchers walking along the beach and the campers were apparently being hurtful towards the researchers {with words and throwing things at them} so the beach camping got banned, the land was changed, the signs were up and now you can only camp in the small section near the beach.

Gin Gin Queensland

We love to explore where ever we can, when ever we can. We love geoaching, and we love seeing new towns. We have been out to Gin Gin Queensland to see the Fred Haigh Dam. But didn’t really stop to look around the town until a while ago.

Gin Gin Queensland ::

Such a cute little country town, where we hope to return one day to see the Cattle Auctions – must find out when they are on so our boys can go and see how animals are sold in the country!

Today we finally stopped in to Oodies Cafe in Bundaberg – I have wanted to stop there for so very long but time/plans haven’t allowed us. Today David and I wanted some much needed “Us Time” as we haven’t had any in so very long, and now that we have a new baby in the house we were craving time together without our boys/baby puppy dog!

Yarramalong Weir Free Camping Spot

From Ban Ban Springs we stayed over night in Toowoomba. The next day we visited Toowoomba Japanese Gardens and Picnic Point Toowoomba we decided to head to Yarramalong Weir Free Camping Spot for the nights. Its not fair from Toowoomba, and we wanted an easy afternoon of driving, with a chance to set up camp in the daylight.

Luckily we had our dinner cooked in our Thermal Cooker so it was ready that night – mind you we forgot to buy greens for it so we had “Chicken Curry” with only potatoes! It was still very yummy. And it was the very first time we have ever been in bed and asleep by 7.30pm!! Yep we were cold, tired and in bed fast asleep early – I turned off my phone before going to sleep but David forgot to 🙂

Supporting The Local Farmers

We have always tried to Support the Local Farmers where ever we are on our travels. From little road side stores to markets to even buying from the farm.

The other day we went to Bargara Beach for some Geocaching, and on our way home we stopped to buy a bag of Sweet Potatoes for $2.00 and a bag of Zucchini for $2.00. We sure had the most amazing Baked Dinner that night!

Do you know that I could so eat a Roast Chicken and Baked Veggies every night of the week, but I don’t think our boys {or David} would agree to that!
