Monday 18th April (Melbourne).

All is now done in Melbourne and we are packed and ready for a move tomorrow. We have had to make a small change to our travel plans and go north via Albury, and then on to Deniliquin. Nelle and Matt left us with a birthday present for Matt’s mum, and as Australia Post wouldn’t take it due to it being fragile we had no option but to deliver it personally. Albury won’t be too far out of our way only adding a couple of hundred Kilometres to our trip so it’s no drama.

I have bought myself a web-cam with the idea of setting up a video call to Nelle and Matt, and even Matt and Lou, with the idea of being able to see the kids as well. Linda is not so rapt in the idea, but then I’m sure it is only that thing about having her picture taken.
