I’m finally home from Greenman and showered and dressed in clean mud free clothes. Its never felt better!! Especially after spending an hour trying to push our van out of the mud, in the rain. We finally got pulled out by a kind man with a Land-rover who was super nice! I don’t know his name but thank you nice man for helping us get out the
field muddy puddle.
I’ve also just heard from the other party (Gemma and volunteers) on the bus that the driver took the wrong way home and they only got home about an hour ago. Mega transport fail today.
We did have a fantastic weekend though, so many amazing visitors came to our stall and played our game, even with all the rain and mud. The feedback you gave us was amazing and I’m still buzzing of it!
Einsteins Garden was great too. I got to hold creepy crawlers, sing science songs, make lung pictures and dress up in a deer skull – pretty random. Although my favourite stall was Journey of the Jobbie – the name sold it alone! It was such an awesome activity where you got to journey though the mouth and all the way down the digestive track and come out the “other-side” while learning about all the bacteria along the way. Being a microbiologist this made my inner geek really happy!
So work doesn’t stop yet, tomorrow I need to be up bright and early to unload this van and return it by 12 – I do not want to do this! Then I have a million photos to sort through and I took lots of videos thinking I would try and make a nice video like the Einstein’s Garden one – although we will see how successful this will be. I’m also right back to work in the lab in the morning. Yawn! in the mean time I’ve uploaded some of my instagram pictures of the weekend that I took before my iphone died.
So its off to bed now but more updates later in the week!
