Relaxed in the Virgin Australia lounge at Melbourne airport having spent a few days in St Leonards with our first Australian friends Cathy (cufflink) and Ian. We met C&I at Liberty Grove where we bought our first Australian property, back in 2000, the Sydney Olympic year. They moved to Victoria a few months ago and our trip was to see their new home and also to say goodbye. St Leonards is a peaceful town, unlike the Sydney suburb of St Leonards where I currently work.
A few barbies, laughs, trips along the coast, walks by the shore and general relaxing made for a good time. Also managed to negotiate a few more sales via Gumtree on my iPhone. Looks like the table and chairs are now going on Saturday!
