Family Time in Perth

Today I set off for an overnight stay in Brisbane,haven,t seen rain for around 5 months,but,as I approached Tin Can Bay area it THREW it down.The around 300kms drive was pleasant and quick (started using this route because of major roadworks on the Bruce Highway and this now will be my regular  travel road to and fro Brisbane) Arrived at the apartment around 3 pm after stoppages and sight “seeing on route,sat outside the building for 20 minutes in the heat,thinking the owners have done a moonlight !! Upon reading her initial message it said “on arrival press button 4 on the intercom “(of course, bright person I am did,nt read that eh? When I re read the letter I pressed button 4 and within minutes I was IN !!! The room is situated in a lovely apartment with lovely people in the “common”area.I nipped to the local Deli and got me night drink & food in and settled to watch a movie on me Ipad,lifes good right now .Tomorrow I fly to Perth ( yes alright on an aeroplane! )To see family there specially the grankids.Gillian the host invited me to have dinner with her & Ron plus 2 other guests,I gratefully declined but joined them for a lovely long chat about everything so now we have put the world to rights! Definitely a well worth stay and very accommodating people.On departure morning I was offered a continental breakfast ! All the above for a mere $40 !!!

Flight Day I arrived at the airport early,fortunarely I enjoy airports ! So many people with mobile phones stuck intheir ears (I don’t have one) Have to wonder how we used to communicate.I was lucky enough to get the EXIT door seat on a full plane and had lots of leg room.The Flight was quick and no problems encountered.Lovely to see my family waiting at the airport (Jayne,Paul,Will and Charlie) After the drive homeit was wine & chat with lots of catch ups.The kids opened up their pressies (all wrapped by Nanny Annie) which had filled my large suitcase) it wa at this point I realised I had forgotten my bloody camera !!!

Saturday we ventured out to Joondalup shopping centre and I haven’t seen SO many people in such a long time!For lunch we went into a food hall restaurant by the name of The Shack (me diet has gone thru the window !! fortunately I have till December to lose a wee bit more) Will (bless him at almost 9) is an avid reader and took us  around Woolies  looking for another book for his collection,After yet more food at dinner we sat outside in the lovely cool of the night whilst keeping an eye on the kids in the swimming pool and of course the obligatory white wine.Early to bed (10pm for me) Jet lag you know..Lovely Family day ( Paul had to go on a works outing !)   More tomorrow
