Our friends from Barra B were heading off on Xmas holidays to exotic locations and lucky for us needed someone to mind their house. We didn’t need any convincing and were there with bells on! The house had a swimming pool, big bath, great kitchen and air-con – what more could you ask for! We wasted no time in getting into the swing of it, mowing the lawn, BBQ’ing and swimming like old timers.
I was never to be short of company as they had a gorgeous Springer Spaniel who was always up for a walk, had a lovely gently nature and would join me for a swim in the pool in the heat of the day.
With Christmas only around the corner we are busy planning our long weekend, which will be shared with other Darwin orphans – of which there is no shortage!
