Melbourne....

Last week Hubz and I left Queensland and it's 30plus degree temperatures and flew to Melbourne to 12 degree temperature and fierce wind!!

I arrived in my Queensland summer clothes ----- of course!  Brrrrr....


but soon got inside and made friends with Tonto the family dog (who I later discovered is not allowed on the furniture!!)


... and then this little gorgeous munchkin came in from preschool and we took heaps of selfies!  He is such a character and I did so enjoy spending time with him.


... on Friday was an important date with blogger friends.... Susan, Shez (who trained from ridiculous o'clock to come in) and I met at one train station and then trammed and walked (personal guide Susan helping) to the next station where Christine was waiting for us 'under the clocks' ...



... the along came Mel... who has been so ill so we were so delighted she was well enough to come along....


 .. and then Marina (who so nicely contacted everyone and arranged the meet up)


... there was a bit of frivolity!!!


... and the paparazi was out in force!


... we stumbled along the famous Lu'Cello's shop


... a memo had been sent for a no gifties meet up but some people just can't obey the rules and these were given to me by Mel and Shez....


Thanks to all of you for making the day free to get together - it was great catching up with you and meeting a couple of you for the first time .... 

... when I got back young Jack had his cricket training where he recieved his 'kit'.... he was so pleased....


... of course I was delighted with the birds that visit their house... these are wild parrots


We met our youngest grandieboy Beau who is a smiley happy snuggly little man and I instantly fell in love with him....



... I can still put a baby to sleep... my most favourite part of young babies is their soggy sleep on the chest...


over the weekend we went for a walk round William Rickets sanctuary... an artist who did lots of meaningful sculptors in a beautiful forested area...


.. there were heaps but this is just a taste of what was there....


 I'll show off my pressies next time.... I'm a lucky gal....

Righto, back at Queensland and we are having some ceiling fans installed ..... lovely young electrician in the house who may need some assistance????

  15. Wonderful that you spent some time with our lovely Melbourne bloggers. Nicest part of having little babies is when they snuggle up to you and fall asleep, then you just have to keep nursing them!!
