Dad drove his old tractor in the parade alongside the other historical society members.


After the parade we went to have a swim and tea down the river, where some friends were camping.

Mildura 19th-23rd Jan 10

2:16 pm Filed under: Uncategorized

For my week off, I took the kids to Mildura ( Gwynfor didn’t have any time off) . Car was packed the night before and we had planned to set of at about 7am Tuesday morning we were loading into the car when we noticed that the rear right hand wheel was flat as a tack. Seriously that car!!!!! Anyway after NRMA put enough air in it to get to tyre place and it was fixed ,we didn’t head off until 9:30 only a couple of hours behind schedule. The trip over was luckily uneventful.We made it in about 5 and half hours. Always lovely to catch up with Kate ,Mitch,Lucy and Will.

On Wednesday morning we went to the Irymple pool for a few hours for a bit of a relaxing swim and for lunch.Good way to cool down when it’s 43 degrees…

Another day we spent at the Mildura Aqua Coaster, it was the first time Will had been on it and he LOVED it! So much fun watching their faces as the come down.

night out on the party barge 2nd Jan 10

We had a lovely evening with our friends on their new house boat, pontoony, party bargy thingy! Not sure what the official name of it is , but it’s very comfortable. Luckily we live very near to the river ,so we just met them at the closest spot to us on the river , and they pulled in and collected us, few drinkies and no car to drive home……
