Weekend In Brisbane

On the Weekend I had to be in Brisbane for my Diploma of Remedial Massage. It was not a fun filled weekend, it was very full on without much time for David and I to relax and enjoy time together. Which was such a shame, but that’s life.

We stayed at the Mantra in Spring Hill – booking our hotel on Wotif because it was the cheapest hotel they had – but the lack of food choices nearby was so disappointing.

Mind you we did hit up the Eat Street Markets on the Saturday night for dinner, and that was such a good decision because they have so many amazing choices. With so much different food on offer it took me three times walking around and 30 minutes to decide what to eat – I get confused if there are too many choices!

The Hummock Earth Cache

You all know how addicted we have become to Geocaching, well there are three caches up at The Hummock, overlooking Bundaberg. The Hummock {Earth Cache} is not a physical cache, you haven’t got any log book to pick up and sign. You do need to “prove” the owner of the cache that you checked out the boardwalk, walked up to the top to the view, read the information board down the bottom and answer the caches questions.

Well what better way to do all, then with a group of Bundaberg Homeschoolers {who all happen to be boys yesterday!!!}

Fred Haigh Dam

I have wanted to drive out to Fred Haigh Dam for so very long! Its been on my Bucket List for so very long, but things happen and we haven’t been able to drive out there – and believe it or not we had to go through Gin Gin to get there – and found two caches at the Rest Stop.

We are super excited because we have found our first “Trackable” and our first “Travel Bug” – Kyle and Cameron had no idea what either one meant, and to be honest neither did I, so I had to do a fast google search.

We have contacted the owner of the “Trackable” and he has agreed that we are allowed to keep it with us for the time being, and will be taking it on a special trip soon! Lets see how far it can travel – it came from Sweden so far! And has been in Queensland – lets see where it ends up.

Some Of The Geocache We Have Found

In the last three weeks we have been Geocaching as much of Bundaberg as Possible. We are trying to cross off all the Caches in the area, to have lots of “Smiling Faces” on our Geoache.com account!

Along the way we are able to see more of Bundaberg, discovering places we have never seen before. And learning along the way – we homeschool with what we see and do as we are out and about. Learning all day long, the best way to homeschool.

Some Of The Geocaches We Have Found ::

We won’t share the exact locations cause we don’t want to spoil it all for you, but we will show the pictures of our finds.

Bundaberg War Nurses Memorial

With Geocaching we are seeing more of Bundaberg then we ever thought possible. From Places we drive past and don’t pay much attention to, and then to places we have been to before but didn’t really take much notice.

Bundaberg War Nurses Memorial is opposite Bundaberg Base Hospital, a place we have been to many times but really didn’t take the time out of our day to walk across to the park and see what was there.

And yeah we found the cache, it only took us two attempts, and many walking around in circles trying to work out where it was, before we thought outside the square and found it in the most usual place!

Are You Lucky Do You Place Bets On Horse Racing

Are you a lucky person? Or do you not Bet? Would you believe that I normally can look at a Horse {before the races} and have a good hunch which horse will win! And yet I don’t place bets – crazy hey!

And I am also very lucky with winning competitions online – I have won a few trips to Melbourne {it keeps on taking me back there!} through our blog. And I do put on a Lotto ticket every now and then, and while I win its only a small win – but its the feeling that I love when I do win – its really addictive. The rush, the feeling, the excitement – I so can imagine its like that when you place bets on Horse Racing?

I won’t play the Pokies Machines – only cause of my personality. I get fixated on something and I can’t stop {yeah we don’t have chocolate in our Motorhome anymore!!!} So I know that it would be extremely dangerous if I was to play the pokies – I would get hooked in no time, and I would blow way too much money.

Motorhome Must Have Items

Where Have I been? Super busy with Family {long story}, Homeschooling, Studying for my Massage Remedial Diploma, Geocaching and trying to get on top of everything that needs to be done! Oh and try and find time to sleep 🙂

I haven’t blogged in ages, like I used to. I have had to let it go, and focus on whats really important at the moment. And I sure miss getting on here, and connecting with you all. But life happens and I am happy that we are able to help out David’s Parents. They need us here at the moment, and that is what we are focusing on.

We do have something exciting about to happen, and we have plans in place, but we can’t share it here at the moment {I don’t want to jinx it!!!}

Bundaberg Lions Remembrance Park

I had time between appointments yesterday {was in town on Business} and thought I would try and find as many Geocaches as possible. Mind you I didn’t have my sweet boy with me so it wasn’t as much fun, and a few of the caches were set up for kids so I will have to go back with him another time!

There was one Cache that I was keen to find because it was at the Bundaberg Lions Remembrance Park

Baldwin Swamp Bundaberg

Yesterday we meet with other homeschooling Mums/Kids at Baldwin Swamp Bundaberg for more GEOcaching fun, along with much needed exercise for us Mums, and an wonderful way to burn off energy for the kids. It was rather warm day but at the same time it was so beautiful.

I actually never even knew that Baldwin Swamp was there! I have been to the Sugar Train Playground. And I have seen the signs pointing to the landscaped bush walking areas but have never ventured that far. I think in the three hours that we were there we nearly covered ever walking track that’s available! If not we were so very close 🙂

Hangi Fundraising For PNG

The other day there was a Fundraising event advertised on a Wide Bay Homeschooling Facebook page and I was thinking it sounded like a great way for our boys to experience more culture in their world, and I was keen cause I know how yummy the food would be from cooking it in the ground!

I asked how much the Hangi Fundraising For PNG was going to be for the evening, and it was only $5.00 per small plate and $10 per large plate – super good value for money considering how much food there was to try. The pumpkin – OH my gosh, I have never ever tasted Pumpkin like it, and I don’t think I will ever taste it that good ever again!
