Last night I fuelled the national economy by spending an epensive few hours booking our next three trips to the big island - to a wedding in November in Canberra, Adelaide for Christmas and to Melbourne next Easter (BTW if you are a burglar reading this please note we will be inviting several large dogs to stay in our abscence).
Anyway - the total cost of these three trips was approximately three million dollars and that includes the use of a gadzillion frequent flyer points to get from melbourne to canberra and back. HMMPH. The problem of being on an island is compounded by the fact that we now have TWO extra paying passengers in our family. I'm looking forward to the time when they start paying their own way !( Although I suspect my mum is still looking forward to this time with regards to me and my siblings).
To tell the truth though Zali and Jett (in particular Jett) are so cute at the moment, I'd be happy for them both to stay just the way they are for a while longer.
