Butterfly Bear

Welcome, I hope you have all been having a good day. I've been travelling again. I drove over to Mum's this morning and picked up her and my Aunt. We drove back up to Wallaroo to drop my Aunt home after spending a week here in Adelaide. It was a long day, I woke up at 6 a.m. and thought I might as well get up. I left here about 8.50 a.m and got to Mum's about 9.20 a.m. We got stuck behind two trucks carrying 1/2 a house each and had to travel for quite a long distance doing only about 75 to 80 kilometres when we should have been able to do 110ks. They finally turned off in the opposite direction to us and we thought we were clear but not much further down the road we ended up with another lot of trucks carrying another house, couldn't believe our luck, so we were stuck again for a while. Luckily not as long as the police escort got them to move over to the wrong side of the road for a short time so they could stop the oncoming traffic and we managed to pass it. They are quite large so were taking up most of the two lanes of road.
We dropped off my Aunt and turned around and came straight back. I drove back to Mum's and then came straight back home arriving about 3.45 p.m.  It was a long day. I was pretty tired so opted out of going out again to choir practise and just veged out in front of the t.v. for the rest of the night.
I did end up making a card and would love to share it with you.
Thanks for stopping by today, much appreciated!!!
