Caravanning – Living The Dream (then it rains)

IMG_2262 IMG_2261
Right, so made the paper today.  Great story by the Charters Towers Northern Miner about us making the Final 20 in the Dometic Follow the Sun ambassador competition (which I will tell you all about in another Blog), we certainly are living the dream, then it rains.  It rains and Zac (Master 5) is trying his Spiderman moves in the caravan, Corey can’t sit still and I, well I am just downright ready to snap kick them.  So, the best thing to do in the rain, straight to my best friend Google as I type in the words “Indoor Play Centre”.  Whoever was the Mastermind behind this concept is a friggin genius.  It is the saviour of many a crazy Mums out there, where your kids can go crazy, run up and down the stairs to zoom down the ever so fast slides, while Mum sits here, vents on her blog and enjoys as Latte.
We are at “Scrambles”, an indoor play centre in Wodonga.  What a deal they have today, $10 entry and then you can use that $10 towards food. So I am overindulging and I ordered hot chips with gravy, going down just superbly in this cold rainy weather.  Usually there are a thousand screaming children at centres like this, but today, for the last hour of opening, it’s just us.  Corey is reading a magazine and Zac is having a blast, again, thank you to the master mind behind Indoor Play Centres!

So what else has been happening with us??  We left Canberra (where Corey worked for a few months), and are heading South.  We have been free camping (until this weather turned on us), and the landscapes are just lovely.  The temperature has been perfect as well, beautiful throughout the days and the nights cool enough to snuggle.  We have booked into the show grounds, a lovely spot at only $20/night for power and water and will wait until this weather passes before we head south to Wangaratta.  We have been teaching Zac about Ned Kelly, so he is super keen to see the big bushranger and follow his trail.  Have you ever tried to teach a 5 year old about a bushranger?  Ned Kelly is kind of a hero, but he was naughty, Police are the good guys, this was a huge challenge in trying to teach Zac the story, am hoping that we have done an ok job with this.
Just a short Blog so you all know we are still around.  I promise I will be writing more, especially about where we have been and places we recommend.  If you want to follow live updates, follow us on Facebook/The Blonde Nomad or on Instagram/TheBlondeNomad13.
Until next time, be safe, and remember to Love Your Life, You Only Get One!!
