I am not scared, I am not scared
It could be because I'm looking forward to the weekend and some chill out adult time. Friends of ours purchased a special double hotel package in the city which includes a meal and then rooms for the night.
So we will venture into the city in the morning and meander our way around the markets (which I haven’t done for absolutely years) and then dine out for lunch. We will then check into our room mid afternoon and I can probably be convinced with some heavy arm twisting to loll around in the heated pool and spa with a nice alcoholic beverage.
Then we’re out for dinner and from there we’re headed to a ghost tour at the old Adelaide Gaol – this is the spiel on their website.
The Adelaide Gaol was built in 1841 and housed approximately 300,000 prisoners during its 147 years of operation. A total of 45 people including one woman were hanged in various locations around the Gaol.
The Gaol was closed in 1988 and is known as the longest continuously operating prison in Australia. The Gaol is reputed to be one of the most haunted sites in South Australia.
Not to sure about this, not really into scary things and ghosts, especially with hubby and his best mate who will probably get a real kick out of scaring the living daylights out of us. Oh well I'm up for it - it should be an interesting night .
The youngest two MM's are staying with eldest MM and daughter-in-law which will allow for some good ol' brotherly bonding. My apologies to her for leaving her with a houseful of boys.
Hope you all have a great weekend
