This is a story about little Amelia, who lives at the base of a Volcano in a town called Mount Gambier in South Australia. The volcano is very famous because it has the bluest water ever seen. Lots of scientists have visited the volcano to see the blue water and test it to find out why is is so blue.
Amelia lives here because her mummy and daddy are teachers at the high school and she was born in this town. Luckily the volcano is no longer active, but it is a very very cold place to live. Not cold enough for snow, but very cold and damp.
So poor little Amelia sometimes gets a very bad cold. She tries to stay happy and her mummy and daddy look after her very well. But she sometimes misses her Nannies and Grandpas, and all her uncles and aunties and cousins, because they live so far away from Mount Gambier. She would love to see her family visit with her, especially when she is sick.
So last week Nannie Pine decided to go and visit her, because not only was little Amelia sick, but her daddy was sick too and her mummy was very worried about all of them.
So Nannie Pine drove
499 Kilometres from her home to Amelia's house.
It was very exciting, and Nannie was so happy to see Amelia and her daddy and mummy.
Nannie helped to look after Amelia and soon daddy and Amelia were feeling much better and mummy was happy too because having Nannie there was a big help.
Only problem was Nannie did not have any time to make dolls or teddy bears for a whole week.
But Nannie was very happy to see Amelia and visit with the family.
Now she is home again
Nannie seems to have a bit of a sore throat today......
