Preparing for my return to Australia

Have to say I have done my fair share recently of going out for lunches, coffees and dinners and meeting friends.... Yesterday I met my friend M at this little snugly corner... we had a delicious light lunch and a good chat....
And last week before I went to Durham with daughter I met my friend S - we shared tea at MIPO at the Inner Yard... Click HERE for more information about this place when I went there last time.....

Above the dinner I shared a couple of nights ago with my friend C - see photo below... We have known each other since we were 11! A long time and each time we meet seems like only yesterday.

Well, I am rushing round doing a final check on the cottage and cleaning madly - just taken a break to read emails and do a little blogging... Have had a particularly pleasing email with news from a friend which has made my day this morning - lovely how something like that colours your whole day. Anyway, as I said, I am off in a few hours - first to my parents for a day and then flying back to Australia on Thursday arriving back late Friday night... A long flight but hopefully, hopefully I could be upgraded this time as Mr SE has put in a request and offered up some of his precious Qantas points for this privilege!!


  1. Looks like you're having a lovely time. Wishing you a safe upgraded journey back to Oz

  2. Have a safe trip home and enjoy travelling with the privileged classes!!!!

  3. All looks so charming. Glad you had such a delicious visit. Will you be ringing back chocolate?

    Safe journey. XO Jane

  4. Have a safe flight Sarah - bet you are looking forward to returning to the sun....it's getting pretty chilly here now! You know what my next question is going to be....! Where did you go for dinner??!!! x

  5. how fun to catch up w/an girlfriend esp. one you've known for so long. i recently did this too and it was so much fun. oh the laughing! have a safe trip sarah.


  6. Sounds like such fun.
    I love connecting with girlfriends...time can pass and when you get together it's as if you've picked up where you left off!

    Safe journey...

  7. Hope you have a safe trip back, you must have fun living in two "worlds".

  8. Those caf├ęs look so cosy. I especially like the corner with all the snuggly pillows. Oh how I would have enjoyed sitting right there!

    About the links to the ferret photos, try these, and let me know if they don't work:

    Ikko paa besoek (5 month old male ferret, he lives just round the corner, visiting for two days as his mum had to see her parents)


    Sati and Poja paa hoestferie, two gorgeous 3 year old girls, are currently on their second visit to me. Their owners are away on business. This is an ongoing thread which will be updated until Monday when they leave again:


    And as others here have said, I wish you a safe, hopefully upgraded, journey back to OZ.:)

  9. Wow, you really do have a foot in each hemisphere! Have a safe trip back :)

  10. Thanks so much to you all... Friday night here in Melbourne.. back again in this most beautiful of cities. And, feeling not bad at all as I had such a fabulous flight and I was upgraded to Business!! A wonderfully relaxing and luxurious experience...x

  11. Must have been wonderful with all that extra space for such a long journey. :)
