When we were at Rottnest for our holiday, Luc and I became friendly with 2 girls that were staying across from us. We had peeked through the curtains and watched them playing from afar for about 4 days (we are a little shy) before they finally came over to see if we wanted to play with them. Actually they came to borrow a ball....but anyway THEN they asked us to play. They were so much fun, Ruby was 9 years old (almost 10) and Poppy was 12 and very handy for me, their Daddy was a Doctor...in fact he was Dr Phil and I stubbed my toe badly and he fixed it all up....very professional like!!! (he even soaked it in antiseptic first....!)
Luc and I just loved playing with Ruby and Poppy and they also had 3 boys come to vist them and play as well...hmm, they were ok, kind of annoying, a bit like Luc sometimes....
One night we played in our cubby till 9.30pm before we had to go to bed BUT guess what, Poppy and Ruby were allowed to sleep in there all night!!!! Wow, they are soooo brave. I would be worried about quokkas nibbling on my toes!
They slept in there for 2 nights....so brave..
It was fun making new friends on holiday and since we have been home we email each other.....
