Happy New year!!!

2010 has gone by very very fast.
I can't believe it is over.
It honestly feels like yesterday we were celebrating the New Year in by a tranquil beach at the Town of 1770.

2010 for us has seen a few changes.
Nothing to drastic or unmanageable.
On review of the year quickly in my head, we have been fortunate and blessed.
It has been a 'stable' year.

2011 will be a different kettle of fish however (in a good way).

This family of (5) have enjoyed holidays in our caravan for (4) years now.
So much so that we are off on a caravan journey of a lifetime for (6) months around our wonderful country!!

Hubby has long service leave approved for the second half of 2011.
Come the June/July school holidays off we go!!
I still find it hard to believe that it is actually going to happen.

Fine details yet to be fully worked out but essentially:
  • Home will be rented out to subsidise holiday
  • Kids will do some form of distance education (Hubby used to be a Teacher which is a bonus)
  • We will go counter clockwise around the country heading north initially for the dry/cooler season.
  • I might need medication to control 'homesickness' as I am a bit of a homebody.
One of Hubby's Xmas presents. The research has begun.
The  'Jayco' Outback. Home for (6) months.
The planets are aligning and the preparation is beginning.
The O&E family is very very fortunate to have this opportunity available to us.

Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year.
See you in 2011!!


  1. OMG! Are the Blythes going? I'm flabbergasted! What a trip of a lifetime to look forward to!

    Most importantly, can you blog while you're on the Highway?

    Imagine the Op Shops you'll stumble across! So exiting!

  2. What a brilliant adventure!! We plan to do this with our 4 children only in smaller chunks in school holidays. If you want any tips on Darwin NT, we've lived there twice & it's fantastic!! Happy travels, love Posie

  3. Not exiting ... exciting! You'll 'exit' highways.

    You'll be glad for a break, won't you?

  4. Oh wow! Now that will be a trip of a lifetime. Something to look forward to.

  5. Thanks ladies, like I have said, can't believe it. so much to think much yarn will fit into the van???
