Another visit to Yamba

Well, we got back late Monday afternoon from another visit to see mum and dad in Yamba. It is great that they aren't too far away at the moment and we get to visit with them, especially little Ella. I can't believe that it was only on the way home in the car that I realised that I didn't take any photos......what a duffer!! Oh well, we did have a lovely weekend and Ella really enjoyed spending time with her nan and pop and she thinks Poppy Pingo is a lovely lady. How funny is that.

Ella loved playing on the stairs in the house and kept giving poor old nan a heart attack. Ella also loved telling everyone what she got up to on the toilet and that she had washed her hands. Very funny.

The weather let us down this time and it did stop us from doing some of the things we had planned. In the end it didn't matter as we had a lovely time anyway. We did get concerned on Monday morning that there may be some roads closed as it didn't stop raining at all on Sunday night.

When we drove through Ballina on the way home, there was one part of the Pacific Highway that had quite a lot of water over it. If we were any earlier we probably would have had to detour. I do just want to say that some people are just stupid when it comes to driving in the rain. Haven't they heard of driving to the conditions!! Very annoying. Needless to say, we did pass three car accidents on the way home. One was particularly bad and involved a truck jack knifing and nearly plunging off an embankment. That was only very lucky truck driver. I am sure there were quite a few people cursing him though as you should have seen the amount of traffic backed up.

Talk to you soon
