Adventures with grandma Shaz during the magic hour

Magic hour 974I am a grandma in many ways and we sometimes joke that I went from about 16 to 60. I like to go to bed early, I like knitted rugs, I've been known to wash out plastic bags and hang them on the line... I'm sure Josh could give you many more examples, but I like to think I'm also an adventurous child. Today I rode my (Josh's) skateboard clumsily (practice makes perfect...) to Everton Park (about 2km) to go to the post office. I also took a bit of a fun risk taking my camera. We all returned completely unharmed and I re-discovered a most amazing treehouse in the process. So many more pictures but here is a preview:

Some snaps from a recent holiday to a secret little spot on the NSW north coast. A week in this pristine national park without electricity and faulty solar power meant no lights after dark so early to bed and early to rise and a lovely break from the hum of city life. A week of red dirt, salt water, mouldy cheese, wine, oysters, sunshine, rain, oil lanterns, reading and STRATEGO - our new favourite board game. Oh and kangaroos. I have seen kangaroos many a time but was absolutely enthralled by these beautiful things - no wonder they're an icon, they're incredibly cute. So ridiculous seeing a big joey in it's mothers pouch with legs poking out. My only regret - not taking more people to share this secret with. compilation-template-luxuriesKangaroo-Joey

The ad went online on Tuesday and she sold by 6pm that night. We got more than we advertised for as 3 men all turned up to buy her at the same time. Continued to get enquiries after the ad was down. So pleased there are people out there willing to put some love into this old lady. She had to be towed away but she was sure looking glorious. So glad we bought her 2 years ago and not a poncy new car. I felt like royalty behind her wheel. Josh-and-Show-Alice-Wedding-Merc-text
