goodbyes...

are never easy when it's grandkids you're leaving behind, but tomorrow I head back to the airport for the four hour flight home to Victoria..... 

 It's been a fun filled, noisy few days...lots of shopping with and without the kids...




  Saturday morning we watched Emily play netball......in torrential rain! 

Luckily there was shelter for me, my camera and Penelope....


I think she was the only person dry......





a first birthday party complete with cake we made on Friday...




A good friend of my daughters celebrated her little girls first birthday yesterday...... 




she's a bit of a stunner is Miss Siena and very photogenic..!


today the rain stayed away and there was some blue sky so I finally got to do this.....





walking on the beach in winter is so good...




The sand (and water) was cold but it was lovely walking barefoot along the beach....

there were lots of these little bluebottles washed up with the tide, such a gorgeous colour...



it's a lovely place to be for a while in winter....

and having this girl for company is always special.....


a photo shoot in the sunshine today....





so goodbye Western Australia, it's been awesome as usual despite the rain........tomorrow morning I'll be back on a jet plane heading home...

out west.....

I'm out west in Perth for a few days meeting Miss Penelope.....
at four weeks old she's totally bewitching and I've spent most of the nearly four days I've been here doing this...
just cuddling and carrying this tiny bundle of joy...
those big dark grey eyes are starting to focus and follow sounds and movements....

 I managed to get her quilt finished before I arrived....


and I was very excited to be able to meet up with my friend Sue yesterday, we managed to have a couple of hours chatting and yep, you guessed it...


more of this......hehehe, a nana is a nana, no matter who's babe it is I guess...

I'm flying home again on Monday and then the countdown to Orvieto begins....6 weeks to Italy with Sue Spargo..!
