First of all I want to thank my Mum, Alison, for her patience and her hospitality in letting me stay for the last fortnight – I had a fantastic time in Melbourne this Christmas! I apologise to those with whom I did not make contact, but this Christmas I wanted to have an old fashioned family Christmas, with a home cooked meal for Christmas dinner and much rest and relaxation as part of my trip south. Mum provided all of that and more! So thanks Mum – very very appreciated! *many hugs and much love*
Thanks also to all those I did see down south – was great to see you all and to enjoy catching up. I treasure these opportunities to see you all!
And on an entirely selfish note, thank heavens for the QANTAS Club. Having full broadband wireless access from the Club as well as food, drink and comfortable lounges, Sky News and so on makes a split journey from Melbourne – Brisbane via Sydney so much more comfortable!!!
