Given it had been such a long stretch since our last trip - and we'd stayed up late celebrating Nissa's arrival the night before - we were quite pleased to depart home before 10:00am!
We'd achieved a lot since 7:00am. The last of the packing was finalised and trailer attached. Nick and I even managed to put corned beef in the thermal cooker before departure and pack it securely for travel. It was still very hot much later that night - but that's another story.
It wasn't long after leaving our driveway that Nissa stated something had fallen from the roof. Nick stopped, reversed and surveyed the roadside. The only obvious thing was a pair of scissors, so he picked them up and we continued - even though everyone wondered how a pair of scissors had been on the roof!
