Caroline and Andy's Messages
Hey Jenni - glad we've not missed you! - We'll definitely be here - will email you with our phone numbers!! Hows the weather in Melbourne?
This web log is quite good - cause the messages don't go up until we've read them - so if someone is really cheeky - say Kenny for example - you may not get to see it!! Not really - its only mushy ones from the parents that haven't gone up!
Comedian we saw was definitely Mike King - His jokes were pretty old. He was telling a joke about being stupid and got mixed up and told it wrong. Also rather racist - we learnt some new words that we're not going to repeat!
PS - Carmel - you look the best in your spec saver glasses!!
QF 0190, arrives 2.50pm thurs 25th. We'll follow you to work for a few drinkies !
Hey Racey - in Sydney now so hopefully catch up soon.
Eh? I must have been drunk when we discussed this!! Will you say Happy Birthday to Hughie and squeeze his bum for me - and Lilo aswell!! Think its the 10th May??
I'd like to say it was me - but its all Andy's work!!
Hey Alison - we're actually beginning to get some good weather - I even put sun screen on yesterday!!
See Kenny - you're not disgusting.....
Mum McIntosh - you're quite right - I'd never use the word traverse - which Andy has used several times, much to the amusement of my Preston Lodge schooling, and I have found some truly great bars. Also good work with distinguishing which mums you both are!
No problemo - although we did take a wrong turn through a sewage works (looking for a beach) - and we drove through a big big puddle poo - and now its all over the van. So We'll have to clean it first.
Other things we have learnt in the van are:-
1 Lock the fridge door before you drive away.
2 Unplug the electicity supply to the van before you drive away
3 Close the toilet and put the seat down before you drive away.
4 Don't leave a basin of dishes and water on the drainer as you drive away.
And my personal favourite:-
5 If a sign says last Mobil petrol station for 100km's - you fill up before your red light is on.
Hey Jen - only 12 or 13 days to go to Australia. Congrats again on getting your visa! We'll celebrate in style when we get there.
My my what a sensible comment Mr boring but good looking. Were you a bank manager in a previous life?
We didn't make it to Cloudy Bay unfortunately, apparently The Witchery sell a bottle of Cloudy Bay on their wine list for 120 pounds - but you can get it here for $40!!! But found some great vineyards - and they'll export a case of wine for $150 dollars. Some of the better ones we found don't export though - sob....
Didn't really drink bottles of wine - and didn't really cycle very far - only say 3km's!!
