Travelling North

I had just the one week back at work after an inguinal hernia operation laid me low for twenty-four working days. The surgeon had told me to take it easy. It probably won't surprise you to learn that I followed his advice diligently.

This morning we board a Virgin flight to Coolangatta for 10 days on the Gold Coast.

We'll be staying at Elanora, 25 minutes south of Surfers' Paradise. I'm looking forward to all of the Worlds but not the crowds we'll encounter there. TLOML will no doubt embrass me again by being the only woman I see without a tattoo.

Having been once before and enjoyed it, I can't bring myself to be too critical of the south Queensland tourist mecca. But that beach at Surfers' Paradise is treacherous. Ocean Grove it's not.

There is a handy shopping mall close by where we'll be staying so I'll try to sneak into the library and update this sadly neglected blog with tidbits of info about how we're going.

Enjoy the southern hemisphere Spring, wherever you may be.

Hope you are having a great time. Don't worry about us peoples who have to continue working. Don't give us a thought.

we can play here.

Andrew - did you check the drinks cabinet?

He got that bloody hernia at the Pfizer Hotel in the post of 4th Sept.

I went to Surfer's Paradise a few years back and I loved the shoreline everymorning. Met funny people from allover the place.
and I loved the tigers at Dreamworld. god i hope they are kept safe from the idiots at the bigbrother house.

scotch thanks Andrew,

Spring? Feels like bloody summer already!

Andrew: Followed your entreaties to the letter while I was away. Will post soon on the goings on.

BWCA: Hahahahahaha! You crack me up, as usual. Your comment reminds me of a very funny Garry Shandling Show episode where the characters had to go on location so the studio audience came on to the set and raided the drinks cabinet. You broke the fourth wall of blogging.

Phish: Very temperate it was up there, a little closer to the equator than you are in Sydney. But mmmm, that's a nice climate you have too.

By my count it's been more than ten days now.

So, LL, where are you?

Lad Litter said...

BC: Awww, you've missed me! I don't know whether to blame work; family; cricket; lethargy; or all of the above.

Koren said...

Of course I have, LL!

You can blame all of the above. And then start posting again.

Steph said...

Hope you feel better soon sweets!

Lad Litter said...

Steph: Always feel better after a visit from you, honey bunch.

Ann ODyne said...

all quiet on the Litter front ...

I come here for the Good Links,

so I'll just move on
( Input, Throughput, Output, as they say)

Lad Litter said...

Ann: Y'all come back now, y'hear?

Ann ODyne said...

Yep - Unsullied Air brought me home last night, and since you mentioned Coolangatta I have actually been there!
(I wonder if locals call it The 'Gat?)
Now I've seen Coffs and the highway to Brissie. QLD is wonderful.
