Bargara Break – hope for separation-computer-anxiety


Just a few comments on our Bargara Break posted with pics. I made the mistake of choosing pictures and then found it hard to put text in. 

I was actually encouraged to post this little break by Elaine Amanda (thanks friend). 

Me, I hate taking any kind of break from my computer. I am chained here and it is very difficult to get a release. Because it was our 41st anniversary (wedding), I relented and said, “Yes, I will take a break.”  It was so hard for me. 

For those suffering from separation-computer-anxiety, I give you hope. 

I made a decision and said, “That’s it.” I walked away from my computer, got in the car and sat in the passenger seat, worrying about my computer. 

I wanted to go back there, to capture my computer and hug it. 

I didn’t do that.

Instead, I peered at the roadworks going on, green pastures passing rapidly (he drives fast as speed limit). 

Soon I had ‘almost’ forgotten my first  second love and was concentrating on my beloved of 41+ years (married for 41 years, so it’s 10 months more than that). 

Loved the drive. 

Loved stopping for a break. 

Kept asking “Are we there yet?” typical non-comprehending passenger. 

Stopped at Gympie and had a wonderful roast. That was interesting because they wanted cash and guess what? Yes, I didn’t have any; well maybe a few coins that were not enough. 

The girl (thank you lovely girl) believed me and prepared our late lunch (after 2.30 pm). 

Soon he reappeared, smiling, looking so handsome, so attractive… (enough of this)

He paid. 

We ate.

We left.

Finally arrived in Bargara around 5:30 pm. Monday. 

Resort restaurant was not open on Mondays!! 

Headed for Reilly’s restaurant. It was open!! Halleluia, we could eat. 

Lovely staff, woman who looked 25 claimed she was 42. Still don’t believe her.

Had chicken a-la carte (French word) and He had mud crab and fish.

Everything was lovely and no bones about that.

Back to resort; watched TV for a while, had a liqueur and our own peppermint tea.

Went to bed.

It was very hot. Put the fan on (three times)

He slept well in the rafters where he can snore peacefully.

Finally, I think, I slept.

Next day: more…
