Yes I have been soooo slack! Update is here!!

October 30, 2013 - Fremantle, Australia

Hey all,

Yep u don't need to say it.....can't believe it's been 3 months since my last entry!! I think I last updated from Exmouth, well from there we headed inland to Karrijini National Park. We spent a night in Tom Price (home of Rio Tinto mine) and then out to the National Park. We loved it, the gorges were amazing and the boys did very well walking down thru some pretty rough and steep terrain! We would highly recommend a trip here to anyone!

We then headed up to Eighty Mile Beach which is about 400kms south of Broome. We stayed here for 3 nights and relaxed, Osc did some fishing and we collected shells as the beach here is covered in them!

On to Broome, where we enjoyed 3 nights before flying back to Perth to start the job! Broome was in peak tourist mode so we were lucky to get in to a caravan park! We watched sunset ver Cable Beach and toured around but didn't see too much as we had to get our van ready to leave.

Thanks to an old friend of Oscas we left our van and car on another friends Mango Farm about 12kms out of Broome. We really hope it's still there when we get back!!! The original plan was to leave for 6 weeks however the job has been a lot longer and it's turned in to 16 weeks! Osca has enjoyed a challenging role working as Construction Manager for Ewing Constryction doing a job at the BP Fremantle terminal. It's been a lot of hours and working 7 days a week but he has been paid well so we have finally got some savings again!

So for the last 16 weeks we have been living in Freo, it's a great spot, there's always something happening...for those who haven't been here its kind of like St Kilda...close to the beach, lots of bars/restaurants, touristy, a hippe vibe, people with money and the exact opposite with some ferals too! Whilst we've been here we have firmed up some great friendships with Julie, Robbo, Axel and Peppa, Lisa, Jas and Jordi, Chafic, Sherine and Nadya! And also got to know Oscas side of the family and spending time with Toby, Cass, Jo, Paul, Levi and Aivi.

We've had visitors too...Mum and Dad, Megan and Cohen, Nat, Carlene so it's been fun to play tour guide too! We also fit in a trip home and a wedding of our good friends Keith and Sophie in Hamilton Island Qld!! We left the boys in Melbourne with Nana and Pa, Grandma and Aunties and Uncles looking after them and we flew to Hamilton for 4 fantastic nights with some of our closest buddies...Good times!!

We are currently in Freo and moving again tomoro from our 2 bedroom cottage to an apartment in the city so that should be fun! The job is finally coming to a close and we should be heading back to Broome by around the 8th November!

Wet season is about to hit up in the Top End and the weather will be extremely hot and humid and we've had to revise our plans...so we will be heading home across the Northern Territory and down the centre via Uluru!

We are excited to get back to our van and continue our trip but also to know we will be heading back to our home in Hurstbridge and returning to live near our family and friends again. I have enrolled the boys in kinder next year (4 year old for Zac and 3 year old for Harper!) and they are both so excited. It looks like I also have a job for a couple of days a week with my old company and I am looking forward to getting back in to it!!

Now all we need is a job for Osca...any offers out there....anyone, anyone?!?!
