I tried ringing my parents all day today. No one answered the phone line. Then I tried to ring dad’s mobile. No answer either. He’s usually pretty good in that he tends to ring me back. 
First the worse flashed before my eyes. Then I thought nope there must be a logical explanation to it. 

They tend to travel a lot and well they must be away. Mum was telling me they are off to New Zealand in November or was it Sydney? 

The thing is I’ve been racking my brains and can’t remember what day they were going? 

I’m pretty sure it’s around this time. As I remembered it’s around Melbourne Cup time. And Melbourne Cup is next Tuesday. 

Anyhow guess I’ll have to drop off the clothes at their place another day then or just break in as I do hold their spare key.
