I like to look back and reflect on the month. Sometimes a month can fly by and I think that nothing much happened. But when I look back I realise that there were lots of little moments that made it pretty special.
June was unkind to us, the winter bugs have settled in! Viruses, gastro, colds, you name it, we got it. Hopefully, everyone’s immune system is built up and we will be healthy for the rest of winter.
Dixie threw his camping gear into the car and headed off for a boys weekend. He was part of a team that re-create Hunt’s Track from Prince of Wales mine to Yerdanie Rock. This track was used for the prospectors who were heading to the goldfields to make their fortune!
In 1865 and 1866 explore CC Hunt cut a track from York to the east of Kambalda with wells about 30 kilometres apart. While finding a way through the scrub they often come across bottles, cans, horseshoes, buckles and chains.
I was cursing him for leaving me on a long weekend with sick kids!! Turns out he didn’t have the great weekend away as he planned. There was no drinking and yahooing for him. He was struck down with a tummy bug. Yep, stuck in the bush with no toilet, not sure if that is karma for leaving me or just rotten luck!
Being stuck at home for too long, I was going a little stir crazy and needed to escape the house. A hike was in order, I needed some time outdoors surrounded by nature. We headed to the Perth Hills to explore the spectacular Lesmurdie Falls.
Previously I’d only explored the falls from the viewing platform located at the top. This time we got close to the rushing water and explored the foot of the falls. The children loved clambering over the rocks.
Master B has no concept of danger and you can not tell him to slow down! He leaps and bounds, runs and jumps and never slows down. He almost fell off a large rock and into the water below! It was a little too close for comfort and I am sure my heart skipped a beat!
Take 3 for the Sea
On World Ocean Day I was planning to join a crew of people and help clean up a beach in Perth. However, I was housebound looking after sick little people.
Instead, I am taking 3 for the sea. Have you heard of Take 3 for the sea? Simply take 3 pieces of rubbish when you leave the beach, waterway or anywhere! If we all do our bit we can make a difference and reduce plastic pollution.
Rainy days are for knitting! Making a Farmers Market Tote bag to help me go plastic free. Made a mistake so the bag will look a bit wonky but it will still hold my goods!! Or should I start all over again?
