Sunday driving..on a Friday......

Hello All,
Well, tomorrow is the Big Day; Beloved and Scorpa-Boy head off across this wide brown land of ours to Perth for the Aussie Mototrials Championships. The car is packed, the trailer is full to bursting...and I'm not sure if they've packed enough changes of underwear! They've both hit the hay after a busy few days....Four solid 1000klm days of driving ahead for my Beloved.....
Scorpa-Boy has been training at his club on the Hawkesbury River since Sunday, and Beloved and I headed down this morning to bring him home. I wouldn't normally have gone, but I swapped a day at work to help Beloved with the 6 hour return drive as he's been on nightshift all week and is totally shagged. We haven't seen much of each other; I arrive home from work as he is going, and I leave for work in the morning as he is arriving home. This morning, he had a shower as soon as he arrived home, then we headed off. Much to my surprise (and relief; I don't know the way, and I we were towing an enclosed motorbike trailer) he drove down, but I drove most of the way home. I think that I must have looked a sight; a bit like that young female police cadet in the 1st "Police Academy" movie when she was trying to pass her driving assessment by driving along slowly in circles and figure 8's, singing to herself. That was me, Sunday driving, around the winding Putty Rd Bends, singing along to Cat Stevens whilst Beloved snored beside me and Scorpa-Boy was wired into his MP3 player.
I'm glad the roads weren't busy, and the weather was nice. There are so many crosses and memorials on that stretch of road, but for me, the most chilling is a scorched patch on the road on a rather tight bend..you just know that someone never made it home that day...
Gorgeous Girl is off to work in the morning, courtesy of the 7.30am motherbus, then she is staying at Besties' place so that they can catch the early morning train down to Newcastle on Sunday morning. They're going down so that Bestie can meet my parents before he stays at their house next weekend after they go to 'Taste of Chaos' in Sydney...I don't know what he'll do if he doesn't like them (or they him)....He is catching the Sunday evening train home, and GG is staying in Newie. On Monday night, she is taking two 12 year old girls to the "Living End" concert at the Entertainment Centre. My friend in Tamworth bought herself tickets, but didn't actually want to go to the concert, so she asked my concert-fanatic daughter to take the girls instead! Verrry intense HSC preparation for my Gorgeous Girl......
Vegeboy and I are driving down to Newie tomorrow (he's none to happy about it)...but the other two didn't want to travel with us! We're just going to catch up with family and friends, and then come home Monday night after the concert has finished.
That will do for me today; I've got be up at 4am to wave the travellers off! I doubt I'll blog again until next week; I won't be home! Until then, stay safe, and be happy,

Love Cyndy ;) xoxox
