Bashful says farewell to Australia


Well we have had a ball taking Bashful with us on holiday up to Cairns.
We tried to make sure he saw as much as we did and experienced all that the Northern part of our beautiful country has to offer…sun sand sea and rainforest.
I think he had a ball..this is the second time he has visited us and it was a long time in the planning!
In fact when we booked our holiday early in 2014 i spoke to Bacon and the plan was hatched! so we kept the secret for nearly a year..amazing for me!

This week the little guy will wing his way home..and i am sure he has many tales to tell..and i also believe he has a little explaining to do!! (more of that later πŸ˜‰ )

So i have got a little group of pics to show as we bid our little mate farewell and say safe travels…

So it seems fitting to say bye bye to Bashful with some fireworks..we sat on the beach on New Years eve..eating fish and chips and watching the fireworks over the coral sea..Bashful had a great night and so did we..so adieu my friend and let’s do this again!
Loves Fozziemum xx

  1. A) It’s pretty pathetic that a pet rock has a more exciting life than me , and B) Bashful looks awfully young. As such I am SURE that was a non-alcoholic drink you were sharing…. right?

      • Well then! It appears I can’t send any of the Run A Muck Ranch organisms to visit you because they are all under age and I don’t approve of under age drinking! (Picture my arms crossed and a judgemental expression on my face as I say ” Hmmmppppff!”

        Could my think about drinking be the reason for my boring life?

  2. You planned a fabulous tour for him. He’s seen and experienced much more than many Australians. We’re wondering how he made it through customs….

  3. That Bashful and you Fozzies sure do know how to have fun. I bet he was thrilled to see his “relatives.” …and the food! YUM! I hope the toe is feeling fine. Red is a pretty color, but not for a toe!

  5. Thanks for the laughs. It’s really great to see rocks having fun. Every now and then we hear about a garden gnome being “stolen”, who returns a few weeks later complete with portfolio of pics taken somewhere exotic and, of course, the gnome is in all of them! πŸ™‚

  8. Snorts and rolls with laughter. That little rock of mine *always* has the best of times! I’m sure this trip was memorable in more ways than one – winks. Can’t wait for the little guy to get home. He has a LOT of explaining to do. XOXO – Bacon
    P.S. You can say how you really hurt your toe. We all know Phil was involved – snorts!

  9. I was so sad when the legs fell out….I have not had a chance to try to glue it back together with new phone/net provider here & now behind on comments & blogs again. I will be out tomorrow so will work on it Friday. I need a chunk of quiet time so I can concentrate on fixing it properly.
    Thank you for the thought & the gifts….they are lovely (like you) & cheered me up!!!!
