Chinese New Year is about Family and mine are all on the other side of the world
(well the ones that aren't supposed to be upstairs falling asleep)
This is my Grandma and Grandpa who live in Melbourne. We were all looking out for the Paparazzi when they snapped us outside their condo by the bay.
Probably listening to Triple Js Hottest 100
This little piece of Heaven is where my sister served the Imeldas tea and a good fruitcake,
with a jug of cold water flavoured with freshly picked mint on the side.
It is literally just at her backdoor.Australiana
This is my laundry door where I look to escape the sideways rain, snow and sleet outside my back door.
Postcards and Koala compliments of Skye who sent me a care parcel last year.
I will also accept donations of Tom Yum packet soups, Chicken Twisties and Cherry Ripes. Email me for delivery address.
Have a lovely Australia Day.
I hope the wind blows the right way and the air is just damp enough for safe barbies and no bush fires.
I loved Melbourne when I visited only a few years back, the only city where I thought to myself while walking through it (the only way to really a city) "I could live here"... and this coming from a former Parisienne!
I notice that you are getting braver and braver on the "photo front", we can actually see you... Ok, still the big sun glasses on, but we will forgive you because of Ozzy Sun and all that - but just this once!
Happy Ox Year and Oz day to ya all!
K: They are adorable and in mid to late 80's so even better (clean living) My sister lives on acreage. They got the pool with the money they had borrowed to pay for Herceptin (a Breast cancer drug) which the aussie government made free.
SW: My grandparents are fantastic arent they? thanks!
Thanks Mrs C: I should have added Happy Republic Day to the folks in India too. (we post colonials gotta stick together)
Sal and IHeart: Thanks! I would go home in a minute but the special education we need is only here in Ireland - so far....
Nan: That will get the Melbournians gloating! they love to think of themselves as "european" in a good way (not in a former yugoslav factions fighting at the tennis way!
They have the fashion, the food, but no Sydney Harbour- a sore point!
