Another trip away to see DS who has now graduated from The School of Infantry at Singleton "Lone Pine". He is in 8/9th Battallion Royal Australian Regiment which is stationed in
Queensland. He has been very lucky to get posted to his home state. We love it as he is able to come home some weekends since arriving back. I missed him so much while he was in Wagga & Singleton. Only seeing him twice in 6mths was a rude awaking for my first child leaving home.Many teary days/nights.
Of course the other reason why I'm so glad he got QLD is it was such a drain on finances to go & visit him, even though we took as much food/drink as we could.
The kids think it's a great treat to get the cereal in those little boxes so that was good for brekky with a juice popper, Lunch was fresh bread rolls + some ham/salad whatever I picked up in the town we were going through at their local supermarket. I took plenty of fresh fruit/Biscuits & Cake of course the trusty old thermy came to. At night if our motel had a microwave I bought those frozen meat/vegie, Pasta or Spag Bog meals, as dinners are the dearest to buy. They are nothing like a home meal but they served the purpose. All in all I saved a fair bit of money doing it this way. Of course motels are never cheap specially when you need them night after night in different towns while travelling. I shopped around a lot on the internet before we left. We are so lucky the car is quite economical on fuel.
Have been meaning to publish this post for ages as we have been back for over a fortnight. While we were away we had a few hot days & the last of my cauliflowers has gone to seed, beans have finished & the whole lot needs lots of TLC. Hope you all have a lovely + productive day.
