Wednesday 19th July 2017, Melbourne.
We are now in Melbourne, flew down yesterday, and so far, even though it is way colder than home, it does not seem to be too much of a bother. It is wet at the moment so that is what is making it also feel a bit worse, so we’ll see if it is much better when the sun decides to shine, if it does. The fact that we are inside at the moment with a big fire helps somewhat as well. We have made an arrangement with Matt to use their second car, it only means getting it from the rail station occasionally, so we do have transport when we don’t use public transport, which we will be tomorrow when we go to Port Melbourne.

We have had Narrelle and the kids here for the previous week, and what a treat it was to have them. Matt, son in-law, also came with them but just for a few days. He was originally going overseas for work, which is the reason Narrelle planned on coming, but he had to change his plans at the last minute for personal reasons, so he came as well. It was the first time Matt has visited and I think he appreciates now why we settled here. They all thoroughly enjoyed their visit and as I said it was such a joy to have them being so well behaved. Now it is our turn: We are going to Melbourne next week, as I said for Elly’s 18th, so we will be there in the cold weather from Tuesday for two weeks, BRRRRRR!
