A Holiday

On Boxing Day my parents went away again they will be home around the end of January, they are going to Perth. While they are away I am staying at their house for a week from yesterday (Boxing Day).

I am staying here to have a break from my kids and it is nice to be have a house to myself, I do have to say though that I had a rotten nights sleep last night maybe it was because I was in a different bed or maybe because I didn’t have my C Pap machine as I have no where to plug it in at mums place.

Next week my sister Sue is thinking about coming here for a week then I think I may even come back again for another week if it is alright with mum and dad and Tim as this is the closest I get to a holiday. I should say Tim is saving up so that he and I can go away for a week in a year or so.

At the moment Tim is in Sydney for 5 days working he is driving buses as he is off work for 2 weeks from driving trucks. Tim is not one for taking a lot of time off work.

Last night mum sent me a text message telling me that the air con in the motor home wasn’t working and of cause that sent dad off on a negative rant, however, they where able to get it fixed this morning and it only cost them $100 which made dad happy.

Oh yeah I want to tell everyone that mum bought dad a generator for Christmas to have in the motor home it is powerful enough to run the air con. At first mum was going to get a smaller one but it would be able to run the air con and only Christmas Eve dad was saying how hot it would be when they free camp without the air con so she bought the bigger one instead. She didn’t pick it up until Christmas Eve as she really wanted to surprise dad with it and that she did.


  1. sounds like a great holiday to me..a place all to yourself!! Enjoy!!

  2. Make the most of your time alone..We all need it from time to time....

    I hope your parents have a great trip...
