Bags Packed

In preparation for our big 'date night' tomorrow night, we have been organizing the farming out (read as 'dumping') of our smaller children. One for Nanny, two for Grandma, one for Auntie Bel & Uncle Jason and one (Miss0) for Auntie Shell & Uncle Shane's in Brisbane.

Having one person take on the lot is a big ask. We prefer to hand them out in small manageable doses. Otherwise we might burn our bridges.

Tomorrow night we're off to enjoy the concert :) Or a least, I'll be enjoying the concert while Tracey worries and pines and considers leaving early. I can't wait. With luck we'll fit in some sushi or yum cha as well.

Although it's only for one night, and we're coming straight home after the concert with Miss0, it's going to be a real treat.

Because there's a sleepover involved, the kids have also been super excited about the whole thing, to the point where they've packed their own bags - although some are better at it than others.

"I'm ready, Mummy," announced Miss5, standing beside two suitcases. I can understand her excitement - Grandad has been known to give out Chuppa Chups for breakfast. Well they're strawberry & cream, which are sort of breakfasty.

Tracey peaked inside the open cupboard - nothing but coat hangers. Miss5 had packed her entire wardrobe.

I don't know how long Miss5 thinks she's going to Grandma's for, but I suspect she's going to be hell disappointed on Sunday.

About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
