We have been away for a few days in Melbourne. It was a lovely break and we stayed with our daughter. Our activities can be summed up in a few words – shopping (clothes and shoes), eating and sightseeing.
Both The Duke and I bought clothes and shoes that we needed. Some of it is to replace existing items in our wardrobes that have seen better days. I will do a separate post soon about the clothes and how they will fit in with my existing clothes.
Missy took us out to dinner last night at the Woodlands Hotel which was really lovely and today we caught up for lunch with other family and friends.
Yesterday we went to the Immigration Museum and saw the most interesting exhibition, “Leaving Dublin” which is a photographic essay of the current wave of people leaving Dublin as a result of the economic downturn.
As the saying goes, ‘there really is no place like home’ and now I need to unpack and put a load of washing in the machine, make our lunches and plan what I am going to wear tomorrow.
