THURSDAY IN MELBOURNE:

Yesterday:
train to Wellington... 2 hours on a freezing train! I was frigid by the time I got to Wellington... and CRABBY AS HELL!!!
Spent 3 hours walking the streets of Wellington (I'm a street walker now), then I caught a bus out to the airport and spent another 2 hours wandering around before my flight.
The flight.... 4 hours of bliss, just sitting there dozing... and being fed and I even drank 2 glasses of wine (which went straight to me head!).... got off in Melbourne slightly pissed I did!

Got straight through customs etc and me Mum and Niece were there to pick me up.... off to the Hotel, unpacked, yakked, had a lovely dinner ... fell into bed and slept like a baby!

This morning...I got outta bed at 9.30 am!!!!! ahhhhhhhhh.....

Mum and I caught the tram into Melbourne Central and shopped... all day!!!! Did not buy much, we are 'saving' ourselves for the Factory Shops on Saturday!!!!! OOOOO can't wait. Hey Wanna, want to come with us on Saturday????

Got a big day tomorrow with the family stuff... my darling niece is Graduating as a Police Officer ... we are so very proud of her.

Now.... it is dinner time and Mum and I are going to have a very light dinner tonight cos we had a very EVIL piece of cake this afternoon, but is was OH so nice.

I am having a wonderful time people..... and as you can see I found a computer in the Hotel that I can use .... YIPEE! Can't do photos though, so you will just have to wait till I get home to see stuff!
End of Day: I'm loving it ... even though it bloody rained this afternoon and me hair frizzed.... BUGGER IT! Luckily I brought my hair straightener with me~!
NSV: does eating cake count???????? ha ha ha! It was nice. nite nite.

  11. WOOHOO !! Sounds like you're having a good old time. ;-)

    I spent the day at a local water park with my little friend, Taylor. I read a book and she ran through the water and up and down the play equipment, dragging one or the other of my dogs behind her. They all had a blast.
