Day 87. Perth

Wet, Wild & Windy...

Today was a miserable day. Bec and Scarlett did some morning housework for Robyn, but when Bec tried to put out a load of washing, the heavens opened up and its ended up being an off and on affair all day ever since. Even the wind has picked up and there is a chill in the air tonight.

Today we finished packing our three boxes (to be sent back east), so I ducked out to visit Jayco in Perth to get a replacement power point that I found was playing up. The service I got was second to none as they were happy for me to do a straight swap. How simple was that?

While away, I got caught up in traffic as there was some heavy downpours and quite a few vehicle accidents on the road. The traffic was banked up for miles. I guess the West Australians have forgotten how to drive in the wet as they haven't really received that much this year yet.

On the way back I dropped into 'Bunnings' and bought a house TV antenna bracket that I'm hoping I can convert into a 'travel bracket' on the outside of the van for the satellite dish. Now that Nanna is only days away from arriving to join us on the next leg of our journey north to Exmouth, I really need to pull my finger out and find a place for this dish as its been 'resting' on the spare bunk bed when we travel up to this point. It's been annoying Bec anyway, so I might as well get the job done! (Hopefully it works).

I've also started sorting through my own gear as I'm disappearing from here tomorrow for the weekend. I'm off to Barbagello Raceway to support 'Kelly Racing' at this weekends V8 Supercar round over here in Western Australia! Go Rick! (not forgetting Todd, Greg and Dave of course). I've been invited to a 'Big Brekkie' with Kelly Racing on Friday morning, so I've convinced my mate Geoff to come along, as it also includes a pit tour of all 4 x pits that belong to the Kelly Racing Team; (Rick and Todd Kelly sponsored by Jack Daniels; Greg Murphy sponsored by Pepsi Max; and Dave Reynolds sponsored by Stratco). It should be a great weekend of motorsport for my team as they are coming off a race win for Rick Kelly, and also a few podiums from Rick and Todd in New Zealand! I'm staying with my mate Geoff who just lives around the corner from the racetrack. I can't wait.

Bec was kept busy doing housework today (sorry honey), and Scarlett was a champion as I have been told by good authorities that she helped her mum clean up, and busied herself by doing craft and watching movies when Bec didn't need any help.

Thank you both very much, as I feel as though I am the luckiest person in the world lately. I love you Bec, and I love you Scarlett. You two are the centre of my world, and I couldn't ever imagine doing this trip around Australia without either of you. xx

I would normally be a little worried about leaving Bec and Scarlett alone together in a strange place/house by themselves! But I'm sure they will be fine as Bec's mum Wendy turns up on Friday, who I'm 99% sure will smother them both with lots of hugs and kisses.

Wow! It'll be 89 days since we last saw the 'old girl'...


PS: Sorry as there are no photo's today. With the weather the way it is, and the 'nothing interesting thing happening', we just didn't get around to taking any....
