Flat Susan visits Brisbane Australia

Hi My Name is Flat Susan

I originated from my creator Neet of Hickydorums

I left my home almost a year ago to travel the world hosted by people who play and show their desks on WOYWW

To read all about my adventures, Neet has made me my own blog called

So I arrived in the land Downunder called Australia in a town called Brisbane in June 2014.
It is the middle of winter there if you can call 22-31Celcius a winter hee hee 

As soon as FS arrived I put Flat Susan by the phone so she could call home anytime. An hour later I came by and she had some Vitamin C tablets and collapsed right there and then. Travelling around the world sure is a tiring business indeed.
 That weekend I made this tag to take FS to the craft show, unfortunately I got called into work and couldn't go.
 The next day I was going to take her to the camping show but I ended up in hospital and this is the puncture holes they gave to me trying to get a canula into my arms.

FS came to hospital with me to keep me company, I think she needed more rest too but she was kind enough to hold my hand (neck) and was happy to read the magazines and sip my tea and have a taste of my sandwich

 Finally!! we went fishing and FS happily mingled with my family and watched everyone fishing and catching fish, even my 3 year old nephew caught his first 2 tiny fishes.
 The following weekend we went fishing and went to a prawn farm where this lovely tin man was on display. He was made up of drink cans. I think FS fell in love with him and wanted to stay, but I told her she had many more places to visit. I told FS she could have a long distance relationship first to see if her flat self and a tin man were compatible and if it worked out she could come over and live permanently.
This is the campsite we went to and FS had a wonderful time, lazying around, cooking on the fireplace. She helped make spaghetti and cheese jaffles and Indian bread.

FS arrived with a suitcase that was falling to pieces so I donated this new suitcase to her. It is a case that holds miniature dominos and fits her important documents well.

Ah - I love these journeys - I had Flat Kael come and visit me from the U.S.A. and then Flat Maxine went back to the USA with him....

Ah, she is a bit of a flirt isn't she. I remember someone in America having a bit of a time with her. Will have to put her on a curfew when she comes home.
I hope she remembers those recipes, I know you are a good cook.
Hugs & Thanks, Neet xx

Hi Bridget,

So glad you pointed out your post -- don't know how I missed THAT part.

OMG - did you feel like a porcupine? I hope whatever was wrong is now a thing of the past. You were definitely lucky that Flat Susan was there to lift your spirits.

I haven't been camping or fishing in ages. We used to go all the time when I was growing up in California.

Hi Bridget! I'm ever so late coming to see this. I have continued to click on the Flat Susan website every couple of weeks and it's not been updated with your adventures, so I finally came here to find out what was going on. I'm not sure why your adventures haven't been added to FS's blog. Who has her now?

I'm sorry you were in the hospital! Thanks for a fun write-up of your adventures!! It sounds like you ended up having a wonderful time with her! Hugs, Darnell
