Broadmeadows station


The girls traveled up to Sydney on the XPT. We spent the night before double checking the details.

A day of near disasters and much frustration

The bad weather started on Monday. It was late July before the first proper winter storm hit. It continued into Tuesday.

Sherbrooke Community School Open Day


I took the day off and headed off with Krysta a bit early to visit Mitre 10 to pick up some briquettes.
