…. and a quick visit to Melbourne, then I’ll be on the road again to Christchurch, NZ. The time is just flying.
I said a rather sad ‘slan agus beannacht’ to Uncle Jerry just now but we emigrants have tough skins and are used to making our goodbyes quick before they get too emotional.
I’ll catch the V-line train to Melbourne early tomorrow morning and look forward to a weekend in the city. Some of you PH&Ners will know Amara H who is now living and working in Sydney, and the CC&Lers in the crowd as well as the Vancouver-based Irish gang will know Maeve L who also lives and works in Sydney these days. The two ladies are flying down from Sydney to meet me in Melbourne – how good are they?! I am so excited! And am looking forward to catch up over a glass or two of vino, dinners and brunches in Melbourne’s vibrant goodie scene, and anything else that catches our fancy. I’ll try to load a photo of us in the next few days, I promise,
Sunday sees me heading for Christchurch NZ to visit an Irish friend Anne Marie and her family. Last time I spent time with AMB was on Bowen Island, when she and Lyndon (her hubbie) stopped off for a visit while emigrating to New Zealand. It’s over 10 years and the birth of their two sons later, so we have a lot of catching up to do!
