Melbourne

Last week it was New York, this week it's Melbourne.  I haven't lived in Melbourne since 2008 and the last time I visited was November last year.  I've been planning and scheming the trip for weeks and I'm hoping that Melbourne doesn't let me down in the weather department. This is the first time that Matthias and I are visiting  together and just secretly I'd really like him to fall in love with the place. No alterior motive here.  Nope, none at all.  Really, I've got no idea why you thought that I might like to live here again!

One of the things I'm most looking forward to about going 'home' will be hanging out with these two little men. Last time we met they looked like this. Otto is now a walking, talking toddler and Rowan has a collection of snails, worms and cockroaches. We've been counting down how many sleeps until we see each other since around 60 - right now we're on 3.  Not long now!

Have a wonderful time Clare. Enjoy those little men-I'm sure they're equally sweet in new ways. Here's to falling in love. Fingers crossed.

I'd love to visit too...I've never been there and I'm sure I'd fall in love.

I've never been to Melbourne. Only to Sydney once...and I wish I went to Melbourne instead.
