Thanks for all the lovely comments about my last post! They're very welcome!
Well, having been thinking about our forthcoming trip for what seems like ages, we only have one more night's sleep here now. I know the ten days will whizz by and that I shall be very reluctant to come back here, so I shall try and stay positive! We have lots to look forward to including a huge family get-together in honour of my lovely Mum's 80th birthday. As she has suffered a lot of serious health problems throughout her life, it's a hell of a birthday to celebrate, and members of the family are coming from far and wide. I'm sure it's going to be an emotional trip!
We've been warned about the cooler weather in the UK, too. Here, it's been absolutely fantastic for days and days - yesterday was 29 degrees with pure blue skies and wall to wall sunshine, so nothing to grumble about there! Just have to decide what to pack to be prepared for the UK's varying weather!
The renovations here have been ongoing but it will be good to have a break from the disruption and dust for a while, although we'll be straight back into it as soon as we return!
I have a few more things for her to open but forgot to take photos of them before I wrapped them!
This is the peach tree right now. The peaches are just starting to ripen and should be perfect when we return. They don't get very big but they are deliciously tasty and very sweet. Some are falling off, though, so I hope we don't get any gales while we are away!
I think it's the photo that's listing to one side, not the house - I hope!
I just need to tidy up the big bedroom that the Husband has been working on then I can take some photos. I daren't take any right now; the room is a mess and there is much packing going on ready for our trip back to the UK - oh, and, as it's only 6.30 in the morning, the Husband is still asleep in there!
Thanks for reading. I hope to catch up with you all when I get back!
You wouldn't be dead for quids - I bought our first mobile phone in 1990, three years after mobile calls started in Australia. The phone was Hanno's 50th birthday present; he will turn 77 ...
