Looking back at what there will be
“Memories of things that never happened, these are always the hardest to forget“.
I am pleased to report that having driven another 300 km today that.. well.. I made it.
Silver Car and I went to site for a final round of Goodbyes and to see the most magical sunrise I think there’s been yet.
I should point out that my camera is a $2.75 Sony cybershot 5.1mega pixel. If you think the price is wrong..well.. I won the camera in one of the “That’s Life!” Magazine competitions last year (I would have prefered to have won it for solving the Sudoku puzzles but it was for unscrambling the photo and guessing it was J.LO)
My birthday present to myself next year will be a decent BIG camera!
So, after a few more handshakes and a lot more hugs, time to make space tracks to Toothbrush 3 – This is my final view of the CATS
I made the run to Jabiru in rather slow time – Silver Car isnt known for his oooomph. And I stopped for five minutes at the Kakadu gallery – hoping there might be some Christmas presents for sale…
I also handed in the bag of baby cane toads (sorry, the photo is on my phone so you’ll have to wait) I caught. The ranger was quite grateful but I didnt tell them how many of the tiny little buggers there wwere!
Which segues nicely into the topic of crocheting. I *didnt* get as much done last night as I thought I would. I got distracted.
Lets just say it involved Red Jelly, Vodka and pigeons 🙂
However I can show you the progress and the Patricia Kristoffersen Pattern book with what it is supposed to look like!
One more day out here and then I’m spending Friday chasing around after an ever growing of list of things.
I dont have to pack up the house until January when the Navy pays to have everything sent home to M_F & F_F but I have to remember to pack my birth certificate.. and my passport… and collect my new Hi-Vis Shirt – new company Logo.
Which reminds me – it is F_F’s birthday tomorrow. I had a nasty moment when I got horribly confused and thought it was today… it’s tomorrow!
I am flying out on Saturday and am very much hoping I will have something that approaches regular internet connection so I can communicate 🙂
One more night……
Hugs to you all..
