So what is your opinion??
The other day at the Kiama Blowhole, we walked down the steps to see it blowing - and it wasn't! A girl was sitting near and we asked her if it had to be low or high tide for it to blow! Anyway we got chatting and as there was an accent asked where she was from - Belgium! Chatted some more as my brother lives there too - blah blah as you do. Enquired as to the travel plans with her girl friend and their camper van.
They were headed our way so I wrote down my numbers and said come and stay - really!
We walked off and I said to Marcel "do you think they will come to stay" - No he said.
A few days later they arrived and said could they park their camper in the driveway.
Of course I said.
Told them to sleep inside on the sofa as it would be more comfy - even though my husband is away. I gave them a key to my house and I went out for the day and said see you at about 4pm.
Are you getting anxious about what happened?
See that is the thing - when i told my friends at coffee this morning that I had two Belgian Backpackers at home who I only met for 5 minutes on the weekend - there were all kinds of opinions and comments.
You are on your own. They might have taken all the valuables and sold them. Are your kids safe? Are you just plain crazy? Put all the knives ! etc
You see none of that entered my mind before - I tend to see the good in people. They were two very nice girls who could do with some hospitality and a chance to avoid paying stupid amounts of money to park their van.
.....and they are lovely. My kids love them too and they are staying another few nights. They can sleep on our sofa, use our towels, eat dinner with us and watch movies with me in the evening.
They are friendly and so am I.
PS. Oh I have had them helping me with dinner and reading bedtime stories to the kids!
