I wanted this trip to be a bonding experience that would strengthen us as a family. Clearing out 12 years of junk and cleaning up the house has already been a bonding experience. There was some raised voices and nashing of teeth but in the end we all worked well together.
I would like to give a hugh thankyou to the peolpe who turned up at the last minute to help. Belinda who brought her ute, Jules who lifted heavy stuff with Allister, James who helped with tip shop stuff, Nanny M who roasted pork, Keir who cleaned my dishes, Marnie who made me laugh just when I needed it and Maz for absolutely everything.
