Coming to the end of a fortnight with a gorgeous granddaughter in Melbourne. We started with a birthday party for her first birthday and today we are going to the beach at Neaumaris, along the coast a bit. The beach is wonderful, soft golden sand and blue sea. A far cry from autumn in Hertfordshire . Have managed to read lot so watch this space for the next lot of book recommendations Fly home om Friday night via China arriving on Saturday afternoon – curious it took from Tuesday night to Thursday morning to get here. Such is the strange feeling of traveling somewhere with 11 hours time difference.
