Melbourne Arrivals

Flinders, originally uploaded by burntfilm.

I'm bursting to tell someone! We're going to Melbourne for five days on Thursday.

Oh my goodness!

I'm trying to think the last time J and I were away, actually staying away, overnight, not in range of work and familial commitments.

We're a couple of sad sacks really. The last time we were away was house sitting 10 minutes from home... that was two years ago. So being away-away was three years ago.

My mother's illness has definitely kept us closer to home but she has gone into respite care for a few weeks (though that is another fresh hell).

But back to me! I'm so excited I can't contain myself. We are staying with my sister-in-law which will be great. We'll be public-transporting, going to lots of shops and galleries and generally being little tourists.

Can I tell you how excited I am again!!??

I may be a wee bit biased, but Melbourne is a fantastic place.
I'm sure you'll have a lovely time.
