Ben and I spent Friday buying up on glubs (gloves), beanies, hot water bottles, thermals etc. and felt we were all set to brave the elements. We drove up after school on Friday and after 4 hours in the car tumbled out to be greeted by a toasty fire and a massive big screen TV!!! Not exactly roughing it!
Sunday was spent in Beechworth as the kids had heard a rumour that the greatest Lolly Shop in the WORLD was there. There was no rest for us until we found it. I must admit it was pretty magical! I thought Ben was going to implode! To our great astonishment both kids chose 1 pissy little lolly each and turned down our offer of getting them something else as well. They never cease to amaze me.
We capped off the weekend with a cheery visit to the cemetery. (As you do) James wanted to visit the Chinese cemetery that he remembered visiting when he was little. He was amazed to find it had shrunk, or he was bigger, one or the other.
