So this weekend just gone was mad. Friday night we met up with new friends (Tracey & Anne – we know! How funny!) at Cactus Jacks in Logan and had lovely Mexican food and fun conversation. We then headed over to Coffee Club for a post meal Mochaccino and more chat, before heading home at 11.30pm.

Saturday (8th March) we thought we’d go somewhere we hadn’t been before, so headed off towards O’Reilly’s Plateau in the nearby mountains. It took longer to get there than we imagined, at close to two hours. Mainly this was because it’s up a very long and high windy road with one lane at times, so you have to be very careful. We got there eventually though and managed to grab some lunch at the cafe. We had a chicken satay burger and chips and a meat lovers pizza. The food was nice and the place was packed with Japanese tourists. We went off for a wander around and saw all the parrots before heading off on the treetop walk. It’s basically a series of rope bridges way up in the trees and was a lot of fun.

After the mountains were finished, we headed back down and went for a drive to look at little cars as we’re considering buying a second car in the future. After that at night, we were exhausted and just watched a movie for the night. We watched the new Nicole Kidman movie The Invasion which was rubbish!

On Sunday we went out for a look around again at some cars and liked the Micra, Swift, Barina and Yaris, all a bit too expensive for us right now though at $17000. Still they’re a lot cheaper than the Mini which is around $45,000!
