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 Melbourneย {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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 Parkย

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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!

Geocache Finds In Bundaberg

We are addicted to Geocaching big time! Well Kyle and I are – David and Cameron don’t seem to have the patience for the search of the different type of caches, which is a shame cause its so much fun. And its a great way to see more of Australia.

We are driving down roads we wouldn’t know about, and seeing buildings we wouldn’t know were there!

Its a perfect way to see Australia, and to see the surrounding Bundaberg area. And there is a rush that I can’t explain with Geocache Finds in Bundaberg – some of the caches are so small you have to really think outside the box, others are large containers and Kyle loves finding those the most because there are so many trinkets inside to swap with!

The smaller ones are called “Nano” caches – they are so small you will be amazed they can fit any paper into them!

We have shared How We Geocache With our Boys, hope that gives the inspiration to get out there looking in your own area ๐Ÿ™‚

New Life on the Road has been out and about, exploring the area {when its possible} of Bundaberg and have shared our reviews over on Tripadvisor.

Are you on Tripadvisor?ย We Are On Trip Advisor and would love to connect with you there!

We have lots more to still see and do in Bundaberg, and we will again share those reviews when we can! Until then we are super busy with Geocaching, Homeschooling, caring for the property we are staying at, along with helping David’s parents as much as possible.

Fraser Coast Wildlife Sanctuary

The other week we drove down to Maryborough {once again!!!} to meet up with a Homeschooling group who organised an outing to Fraser Coast Wildlife Sanctuary. So glad we made it – our GPS took us to the wrong location at first so then I used my GPS on the phone, and 30 minutes late we finally arrived.

Our boys love meeting other homeschoolers, and they love Animals. So I knew that it was going to be a fantastic day out. And it was such a great little Sanctuary, one with many sweet enclosures, and one we could even walk through {which was very scary but I put on my big girl pants}

FRASER COAST WILDLIFE SANCTUARY

You have no idea how good it was to see this sign afterย the GPS directed us to Tiaro – 30 minutes past Maryborough! As I was driving I kept on saying “This doesn’t feel right” – Yep my gut instinct was right again!

Kyle feeding the marsupials

KYLE IS OUR ANIMAL LOVER SO HE WAS FEEDING AS MUCH ANIMALS AS HE COULD

He keeps on saying that he wants to open up a Zoo and have as many animals as possible, not too sure that he would want to work with Crocs anymore!!

HOW WINSTON BECAME A MEMBER OF THE SANCTUARY

Can walk in with the Emu's without food

WALKED IN HERE VERY CAREFULLY

Walking through these Gates, I was like “So Kyle, if an Emu starts to chase us down, I am so standing behind you, and I am out of here fast” !!! Luckily I was able to get over my scardy thoughts, and we walked in here all fine ๐Ÿ™‚

Emus really scare me

WHY DO THEY SCARE ME SO MUCH?

I have heard so many stories of where Emu’s chase down people until they are able to get what they want, which is normally to do with food, so I guess we are safe because we left our cups of food on the outside of the fences!

Luckily they cant fly

SUCH GORGEOUS CREATURES

They actually don’t have any wings to fly with and that is why they run so very fast.

The camel

HEY I AM WATCHING YOU TODAY

Kyle was drawn to the Camel – and yes I did have Cameron with us, but for some reason he managed to avoid the camera every time I was taking pics!

Kangaroos with the Emus

A MAMA AND HER JOEY

I was surprised with how calm the Kangaroos were – there were big Daddy Boomers, along with all the Young Joeys {some just looked like they have left their Mamas Pouches} and we walked among them all – and they didn’t mind all of us homeschoolers!

These very cute Sand Monitor was trying to get through the glass! He was climbing up to the top of his cage, and he was trying to get the lid of his box off, it was so very cute.

THE ENTRY DETAILS WITH THE SNAKE AND DINGO EXPERIENCE

For a family pass its a very reasonable price. And I would have loved to do either {or both} the Snake Experience/Dingo Experience.

We had a blast down at the Fraser Coast Wildlife Sanctuary.

Take The Plunge Community Cafe

We are back meeting up with Homeschoolers in the Bundaberg area, and joining in with a meet up at Take The Plunge Community Cafe, where our boys play with their Edison Robotics, which I will have to try and see if I can explain how they work at a later date {I am still trying to get my head around the Edison Robotics!!}

I have never ever walked into a cafe where I felt like I was so awed by it! Walking through the doors of Take The Plunge Cafe, you will so feel it to.

Give a Cup of coffee to those who need it

LOVE THE WALL OF GIVING AS YOU WALK IN

These are tickets that you can take – if you need a cup of tea/coffee/meal and can’t afford it then these are waiting for you!

Leave you worries here

PLEASE LEAVE YOUR WORRIES HERE

I so need this tin!! Love it.

Great Kids Corner

THEY HAVE A KIDDYS CORNER

Enjoy a game while taking the plunge

THEY EVEN HAVE A PUZZLE TABLE

Games Corner

ART GAMES PUZZLES AND MORE

The counter where you order your plunge tea

LOVE THE COUNTER WHERE YOU ORDER AND PAY

You can order your Plunge Tea/ Coffee/Milk Shakes or Drinks/Sandwiches or Biscuits. Then you can grab your own cup off the shelf – they even have a little “Booklet” on the tables that explains “what Cup you picked, means what your personality is” ๐Ÿ™‚

I love sayings on walls

LIVE EVERY SINGLE MOMENT LAUGH EVERY DAY

Little Paintings

THESE GORGEOUS LITTLE PAINTINGS ARE IMPORTANT

When you place your order, they will give you these tiny gorgeous “Art Displays” to put on your tables – they are so the staff will know where you are and bring your food/drink orders to your table.

Chair and Coffee Tables

I SAT ON THE BIG LOUNGE CHAIR AND YES ITS SO COMFY

I love the Coffee Table – its a Huge Bellow with Wheels, both boys noticed how groovy it was {and what it was} when we sat down to design their Edison Robotics {a Homeschooling Mum gives them ideas on designs that they could draw and then work out how their Robotics could do the designs – last Week was a “Maize”}

I am in love with Take The Plunge Community Cafe, its a great meeting place!

Have You Been To Cafe Like This One?
