I could just imagine the Quarantine Officer at the airport say to me, “Excuse me sir! Do you have pigs ears?” To which I reply, “No mate it’s just the way this hat is sitting”. Whoo Hoo
We have booked our flights and we are heading over east on 26th
March for two weeks firstly for a country wedding in Tarcutta for a lovely young couple who are starting out on their adventure of married life and we will be having the pleasure of staying at our spiritual home of…… yes you guessed it, Woodstock our favourite farm.
So we will fly on the red eye from Perth to Sydney and then on to Wagga Wagga arriving in Wagga at 9.10 am in the morning and probably leaning on the kind nature of Helen to collect us from the airport, I love flying into Wagga as it’s such a pretty approach over the hills of the Riverina, I have only done it once before and Caroline and Helen were eagerly awaiting my arrival.
As we arrive on the Friday, we can at least have a nana nap to catch up on our sleep as I am sure it won’t be quality sleep on the red eye. We need to recoup ourselves for the wedding on the Saturday and of course our body clocks will be 3 hours adrift with the time difference.
Once the wedding is done and dusted, it will be back to the farm as I’m sure there will be lawns to mow, dogs to feed (as all the workers need to be looked after) and you never know there could be sheep to feed, I do hope for some poddy lambs.
We wondered if we could take pigs ears into New South Wales, they are strict on what you bring into WA but not sure it is a problem the other way round, I don’t think we will actually go through the route of shame, but possibly the airport security will have the dogs out. Imagine it, the Beagle trots over with its handlers and sits down, indicating we have got something and we turn our bags out to find packets of pigs ears, the Woodstock doggies favourites and we haven’t seen them since 31st
May 2013 so they must be ready for a pigs ear and a fuss.
It will be great to see Robert and Helen and what has been happening in nearly two years on the farm, wow two years, how time flies.
We will plan a proper itinerary but our next stop is Canberra as we want to see all our friends from the ACT 4 wheel drive club, so hopefully everyone you will now know we are coming over and we will be attending the April meeting.
We have quite a few people to see in the ACT and will hopefully even catch up with Gypsy and see how she is doing. Sadly no camping for us as our rig will still be in Perth and we don’t really have the time to drive across and drive back again, we would probably need an extra 10 days for that privilege.
Then we will be driving back to the farm for a couple of days and then we will fly from Wagga to Sydney and have the pleasure of annoying the Davis/ Pratt families for a couple of days before we take our flight home to Perth arriving back late on Saturday 11 April.
Of course we will blog our travels and will keep you all posted as to what we are up to and with any luck we may even get to see some Wombats as we do not have any in Western Australia.
