Never afraid to be the last to embrace a trend, we have started painting and decorating rocks to hide in local parks. We were in Hervey Bay for the school holidays a few weeks ago when we noticed that at all the local parks there were kids with rocks. Rocks in baskets so colourful they… Continue reading Rock hunting
Recently we got a book out from the library called “Perfect” by Danny Parker. It’s all about the simple things that make up a perfect day. The one that I liked was “some shoes and some places to walk to”.
