Holbrook is a lovely country town in NSW, on the Hume highway. It has a park with an old RAN Submarine for the kids to play on, a great cafe there, and is a regular stop for us when travelling. Or was a regular stop, I think I’ll find somewhere else for a break as Holbrook seems to have something against us! LOL!
Last January, when we moved from Canberra, Holbrook was the place that I managed to leave my mobile phone on top of the car when we drove off. I realised it about an hour later, so the phone has never been seen since. I now have a new pink phone, very cute, but I lost a lot of phone numbers. 🙁
This week, while driving back to Canberra for a visit, we stopped in Holbrook for fuel. Pulled up at the pump and realised…. DH’s car, my keyring and a lockable fuel cap with no key! Argh!!! We found a friendly mechanic who demonstrated some wonderful brute strength with a screwdriver and broke the lock, were able to refuel and keep going. Doh!!! Fortunately the fuel cap is only an off the shelf one, not genuine Holden!
