The Long Drive Home

“When anybody honks at me in traffic, I blush, wave, and shout, “Thanks for being a fan.” Being a celebrity is a 24/7 thing.”

It was a slow trip from the country to the city yesterday.

It didn’t take long to pack the car, but the detours and delays, they were the things which took the time.

It was such a beautiful morning. I had to keep looking up at the bright blue sky.

Finally we were on the road. But we’d forgotten one thing. Milking time. The road was thick with cows, ambling along, enjoying all the car horn toots from more impatient drivers as the herd stopped every now and then to eat some tasty shoot or leaf. We were happy to creep along behind them, and it gave Harry and Bert something to get excited about. Long car trips are often quite boring for dogs so we all made the most of cow appreciation.

Coffee.

We needed fortification for the long drive to Brisbane. We took a quick detour to Harvest Cafe.

Of course, you can’t have a coffee without talking to friends, enjoying hugs and chats and sharing all the latest news. It was a very sociable, newsy kind of coffee break. My friends Wendy and Satisha got to see which bead on the mala was theirs. My mala was around my neck the entire time, so you were all there with me, enjoying the early morning of love, friendship and excellent hot beverages. I felt your presence close, and was glad to be giving you such a loving start to the day!

Finally, we were on the highway and the dogs caught up on some beauty sleep.

By the time we got home Harry was well rested and all ready to race inside and out the back to greet the dogs next door. Bert? Well, Bert was mostly still asleep and needed gentle coaxing with the promise of a biscuit before he would leave the comfort of his position.

I’d only been home ten minutes and my work day started.

A full-on afternoon of psychic readings, a quick dash to the shops for provisions, the total pleasure of take-out Indian food for dinner, and then my nightly meditation and an early night.

All in all a very satisfying day!

Sending much love your way, Nicole xx

  1. It sounds like you’ve had a wonderful day and I would really love to do the jobs you enjoy so much one day. Lovely photos too. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I wonder if Harry and Burt can bark ‘ARE WE THERE YET ‘ . My son Cam used to say this if he knew we were on a long journey, usually after about ten minutes . It used to drive us mad . He’s all grown up now but we still say it for a joke …he he .
