Back on Deck



Greetings one and all! Back in the land of living, the southern hemisphere and home. It's day 3 and this morning was the first time both JD and I felt like good. The first 2 days were shockers due to us both feeling so sick - the endless coughing of the past 2 weeks had exhausted me and JD's flu symptoms started just before take off. Which made for an awesome flight home. NOT. And with Qantas stuff ups on the ground resulting in a cabin temperature of about 50 degrees for over an hour we were absolutely stuffed on arrival. We'd organised a birthday yum cha for my mum, so while JD sweated it out alone in bed at home I can assure you those dumplings went down a treat - it was the best comfort food I could have hoped for.

Used the time lag nicely this morning, and headed down to the beach early. The wind and sun and ocean were so tropical and soothing. Spent the rest of the day with the family - the nieces in particular and got some beautiful kid love and energy which had been the thing I'd missed most while I was away.

We had planned to head north for a short break but this is on hold until we feel better - so for now lots of rest is needed.

Thank you everyone for your good new year wishes and I hope to be bringing you photos again more regularly. Here is the departing shot from the winter wonderland and here is one from this morning.

What a contrast between your two pictures!

I adore the snow one - it looks like the trees have been draped in icing.
