Back to Melbourne

Hi all, Im back from another trip to Melbourne.
this time my Nephews engagement.
I drove to Carol and Ian's in Mooroopna had time for a cuppa and a chat before we set of to stay with Gary and Christine overnight , arrived in plenty of time for another cuppa and chat before it was time to get ready and go to party.

Leaving Shepparton with Ian in the Drivers seat it was good to be able to sit back do a little knitting on the way and enjoy the scenery for a change.
The Engaged couple.
not a very good photo was very dark there
Pauline and her daughter Leanne.(the groom to be's mother)

On our way home to Carols and Ians.
Ian stopped so I could take this photo Of

After staying at Carols overnight I stopped in for a cuppa and a lovely chat with Merle, You can see Merle holding a lovely Necklace she just recieved in the mail. It was lovely catching up with you again Merle.

Love the sunset over the lake! That's gorgeous Jen.

And so nice to see Merle too.

It looks like if you are the same (old) party girl as I am, lol ! Any occasion where I can amuse myself I jump on !
During my roundtrip through Greece I met a young Australian student girl who visited Greek to see the land of her ancestors. The poor girl was soooo disappointed about the Greeks because they are bad tempered, unfriendly, unpolite and not helpful at all ! She first thought that it was because they took her for an American, but they were unfriendly with everybody. Europeans too and they also tried to cheat all the time it really wasn't nice. The rest was very interesting.

Dear Jan ~~ Great photos from your last trip, the one of the lake is
great and you and Pauline. That nice
smile must be in the genes!! And even
I got posted.Thanks for the kind words. BTW my tests were all OK.
Thankfully, so I can relax now and
will have to tidy the cupboards
myself, I was saying, I mightn't have to do them. Take care and get as much rest as you can before the next trip. Take care, Lots of Love, Merle.
