Skype! For keeping us hooked into my mum and the rest of the family while she is over there. Small Z was able to see her great aunt and uncles, her spare parent and her second cousin, as well as hear her great-grandma. Too cool!
Last minute decisions to go away in the caravan for the weekend. At 8pm Friday night we were thinking maybe we should just shake it all up and take off to Mung’s birthday weekend in Barwon Heads. By 8.35pm we were on the road. Arrived at around 11pm and went to sleep. Suspiciously painless.

The very few affordable rental properties that are around at the moment. Need to be disciplined and STOP looking for a while.
My random-sleeping macbook is driving me SPARE. Gah. As is the continuing disappearing wifi in the kitchen thing, which is ongoing.
