    Jan, you get about 1000 points for being wise.


    Yep she does - you know - we did not expect the kids (in their late 40's and still kids lol) to change their lifestyle because of us. but you know, its something we HAD to do - we could not come back to another state and now having been back at least we dont feel bad about moving on In fact, we did not even expect to see them that much but we are finding life to secluded - its been good to be here though - we have just become too cosmopolitan - cant wait to catch up in December icon_smile.gif

    One thought Joy. Now that you are on the continent -- any interest in any
    other city here? The east should feel less secluded.

    We did initially think about Victoria, we lived there for 10 years before Simon retired - we were in Mulgrave , but I think we like the closeness of everything overseas!

    Its been good to be back, and we wont feel guilty about being away like I think before I thought we should come back to retire and we find we are not ready for that yet

    My inlaws are in their early 80's and swear they are busier now than they were in their working lives but just enjoying life so much - if they didn't live on the eastern seaboard (Ballina NSW were the brother-in-law and sister-in- law also live and they say if you want to visit mum and dad ring first because it is highly likely they won't be in unless they are away on one of their trips such as presently in northern Queensland). Recently they have been hiking through the gorges and canoeing down the rivers or spending their kids in heritance as we joke and we wish them the best and tell them to enjoy while they can as I am sure that is what keeps them young and I see similar in you and Simon, you have need to be involved and on the go and enjoy what is on offer and if Europe is what does it for you I say go for it and fullfill your life).

    decision taken lightly.

    An off side on the hiking bit the MIL did admit they would not have been able to do it if they did not have their old snow sking poles to use as hiking sticks (waste not want not - reuse), still though have not been able to figure out why they had them with them, haven't talked to them myself just what Chris told me from talking with them (well at least when they can get a signal icon_biggrin.gif )

    we are home after 3 months away-we got here on the thursday and I went off to work on the monday for almost two weeks work. We picked up our little grandsons in the middle of that and had them for 5 fun days. Now it's finally time to relax (after we clean the house of kiddy marks).

    Tonight friends who are in the middle of moving into a new home are coming over for Peggy's (secret recipe) lasagne.

    We have 3 weddings coming up between now and January in Melbourne, Perth and QLD, Christmas in perth after that wedding, then Vietnam and Cambodia for a month at the end of January.

    Good to know you are home safely.

    Hope your friends like the lasagna.
    I made it the other night for the overland group. We stayed at the only
    campground that has an oven. It wasn't quite my recipe, but it was close.

    I'vegot it on now. I bought a great 1.2 kg heart smart roast for $7 and minced it mysel for it. Should be good and the heart smart meat might make up a tiny bit for the lashings of cheese.

    Ah yes, the lashings of cheese. Not a low-cal recipe.

    everyone seems busy, back on the 6th october just a few pics from Kenya

    we are now in England and on our way home soon


    At the elephant orphanage in Nairobi - they do a wonderful job raising them, I have donated to help with the largest one here



    We went back into our room, which has a verandah - and could not believe my eyes, this was so close, I am standing on the verandah

    the rest are quite self explaining, we were lucky to see cheetah and the birds were out of this world

    Awesome shots Joy! The Lion doesn't have good eye contact though, I think a bag of rocks or sticks would be useful for those occasions to roust them up a bit, or maybe a prime steak to dangle in front suspended from a piece of wool.

    Wool and food always work with the domestic versions, so I don't see why it wouldn't work with them icon_smile.gif.

    Love the pics Joy. Safe trip home.
    Good one, Peter. Lions are so darn lazy. I'm surprised they aren't extinct.
