On the weekend we headed down the road for another 10 hour round trip to get more fabric. I have such a wonderful husband who doesn’t mind driving me for these important road trips 🙂 But five hours in the car is a long time and there is nowhere to break the trip, so it does get a bit boring. There are lots of petrol stations along the way, with signs a bit different to ours back home:
Sometimes there are fun little dusty shops to look at, and the actual petrol station shop is like a little supermarket with all sorts of wonderful things for sale! I must remember to take some photos one day…. I do enjoy looking in them quickly while dh fills up with petrol.
On the way back it was windy and stormy. Lot of sand blowing over the road. I tried to take a photo, but you can’t really see the sand blowing across:
So to occupy myself during driving time I worked on yoyos:
And in the hotel staying the night I did some knitting:
We did a bit of shopping in the town over there. There are lots of shops and restaurants that we would see back home too:
No, we didn’t stop there 🙂 Just took the photo in passing…
Finally home again with the most important things from the trip:
Now to find a place to put it all!!!! Who wants to come and help?!
