Getting back to the bush

With Deb away for a Stampin’ Up conference in Melbourne I was at a loose end.  So on Saturday after a quick run around the house getting all (most) of those weekend jobs done (mostly), I threw my camping gear and some basic supplies on the bike for an overnight camping trip … somewhere. There’s…
