Bye Bye Melbourne Skyline

Well, my dear fellow bloggers and readers, the time has come for me to leave this beautiful city again for a while (and doesn't it look gorgeous in the photograph above - a new view which we saw on Saturday morning and could not resist a quick shot).
So, here I am again blogging from one of my favourite places - the Qantas Lounge at Melbourne airport. Unfortunately, we were not lucky enough to be upgraded this time so its 'cattle class' all the way back to UK , ah well... At least though we get to use the facilities at the Qantas Lounges which makes all the difference so we can shower and relax for an hour or so on the way back to UK when we have a refuel stop in Singapore.
So, I may be out of action for 24 hours or so and not commenting but you never know I may get withdrawal symptoms and have to see what all my favourite bloggers are up to and take a quick peek when I am in Singapore - will just have to see how tired I feel.
Until next post - au revoir.....


  1. Safe travels dear friend and remember...you will eventually get there!!

    I can't wait to hear all your news from the other side of the world!

    Best wishes always,

  11. Have a great trip, and how about some more on how Singapore came to be your birthplace?

  12. THank you all who posted a comment after my last one from Singapore - to answer your questions...

    Carly - not sure exactly how long I will be in UK - probably at least a month though...

    FF - not sure if I will be going up to London this time in UK - if so I think I will very probably go to exhibition...

    Miss Kitty Cat -thank you for your comments and for dropping by - welcome to the blog.

    James - Singapore... my father was in the Royal Air Force and he and my mother were posted over to Singapore which was where I was born.... When they first went my mother was only 20 - communications back to UK were not as they are now and she had to say goodbye to her parents for 2.5 years... I would have hated that...
