These four men are the some of the most important people in Jacks life.
Jack my 5 year old has asked for a Bugatti Veyron for Christmas. For those of you who don't know that is the fastest road legal car on the market. Brand new its worth about 1.7 million. Why do I know this? Because Jack knows this.
So when I found out that Top Gear Live was coming to Australia and there are tickets to the show still available I knew instantly I wanted to take Jack, especially since it falls around his 6th Birthday. Awesome present hey?
Then I stared figuring out the logistics of it. Flights to Brisbane $300. Decent tickets to the show $300. Accommodation, food, public transport etc etc $500.
A bit much for a six year old? I know he'd absolutely love it and he'd remember it for ever, and there's only so long he's going to want to go places like with his mummy, but then what do we do when he turns seven?
We always said we didn't want to raise spoilt miners children. I seem to be losing the line of what is miners son and what we would do if Michael had a normal job.
Then what about poor James the middle child who watches as much Top Gear as Jack does. How do I explain that he's being left behind?
I don't know when or if Top Gear would come back to Australia, or if Jack will still be interested in a year so really this is our one chance to do it. 
Oh dear! Talk about first world problems!

Give me your advice and thoughts, should I just suck it up and do it or moan forever about missing out?


  1. That's such a tough one! It is a lot of money, but if you can afford it, then why wouldn't you? Especially if you can take all of the kids and make it a mini-family holiiday?

  2. Its tough hey?! if you can afford it why not, good advice!

  3. I agree with Amy. If you haven't been away for a while, make it a family holiday and take in some museums etc to balance out the birthday aspect!


You like it? you love it? you dig it? Leave me a comment! You have something nasty to say? Take it elsewhere.
