Book Travelling Thursday: Happy World Smile Day!

3in1-roald-dahlI’ve left it a little late to post today. I’d love to say it was because I was thinking hard about this week’s theme, but in reality, it was because I spent it on the phone to my Aunt, watching Gilmore Girls, going to the opticians (I apparently have very nice and oxygenated corneas??) and finally, going to Dobbie’s Garden Centre Christmas Evening.

BOBYet more van drama! This time, it is not a leak, but warning lights on the dashboard that suggest a problem with the catalytic converter and our brakes. Just what you want before a 650km drive to Melbourne. As lovely as Canberra is, I don’t want to be stuck here longer than I have to be, and who knows how long this sort of problem is going to take to fix.

Making up for Monday

button_zpsf54ece10It has been a while since I have done this because my Monday’s haven’t needed making up for, but as I sit in a hotel lobby because our pick-up is now not leaving until 3 hours after it’s scheduled time, I have decided to rekindle it, because why not?
