The Big Holiday...... Day 13

Another intended ‘quiet’ day – to wind down from Dreamworld and to prepare for the
‘Big Visit’ of Brian & Marion tonight.

Vital supplies first – yes, this time, definitely grog; oh, and a few groceries as well. We were going to have a BBQ tonight but the women got their heads together and decided we’d try out the local delivery service and have Chinese.

After lunch, as explained in another post, I finally found signal so set about getting everything up to date. Ben & Chloe played on the lawn area while I got the computer work done and Rob took them for a walk along the beach. Chloe didn’t last long at that though, as she was still frightened of the waves.

When Ben & Rob got back, we had our first ‘domestic’ of the trip – can’t even remember what it was about, now (isn’t that always the way!!) and she threw some thongs (footwear type) and towels at me so I beat a hasty retreat back to the room. I can hear you all yelling in the background “Way to go, Robbie”.

Brian & Marion arrived about this time so it was all smiles and friendliness again to greet our visitors. The festivities started a bit earlier than usual as a result, so I knew we were in for a good (or is that, bad) night.

Anyway, in summary, it was a great night. The Chinese; from Tweed Heads Chinese, delivered by the Café on Wheels Delivery Service (07 5556-1067) was fantastic. Took a little while to arrive but it was hot and very appetising.

Not to put too fine a point on things, and from what I can remember, copious quantities of beer, red & midori were consumed. We wrapped up around 1 am and I can testify, because I am sitting here typing this out at 10 am after breakfast, shower, etc. that we have all pulled up pretty well.

As they say in the classics, “a good time was had by all”.
