It's school holidays - and I do know when I'll be back again.
Early (VERY early) on Tuesday morning, I will drive for almost two hours to Auckland airport.
Then it's off to Adelaide for 5 days to see my daughter, my son-in-law and best of all, my two grandchildren. I can't wait! It's only 3 months since they were here, but at age 2 and 4 they change so quickly. And I've never been to Adelaide before.
Then I'm going to have 5 days on my own in Melbourne, which will be wonderful. Melbourne is my favourite Australian city and I have so many things I want to do there. Mmm Melbourne: great shopping; interesting buildings, both old and new; every sort of cuisine you can think of, and then some; galleries, gardens, and the sea...
This has been a very long, hard term, and I need a rest.
See you soon!
