in melbourne after arriving at tulla at midday, a couple of movies in the afternoon, dinner with sunny and luke and a good big sleep.
brunch with susan and jenny down at the torquay foreshore. a good catch up time for us sisters :0)
in the evening a dinner for many birthdays at anne and den's, mine belatedly, freddie's (early), deidre and jenny. lots of presents, talk, great food and drinks, candles, a lovely night seeing my dear friends and family
I did a drive
past susan and seans, it's looking great all gutted and ready to be done
|this lovely shrike thrush is one of a pair madly feeding|
babies inside helen's roof, we watched them all evening
FRIDAY a drive to helen and don's, a big country meal waiting :0) and a good evening of scrabble and family time. always good
the garden is looking wonderful
|in the morning, masses of lorikeets were deafening but beautiful|
a day of driving, couldn't wait to see the river. i could see no results of the terrible storm that trashed so many crops in mildura, all the vineyards looked terrific. and as i approached wentworth, water everywhere.
flood levels are almost up to 1990 levels but
there's a long way to go before the 1956 height
and my house is still above that level
